Restaurant is nice. Dishes are ok sized and for the price, very appetizing and well cooked.
We were there with kids - no problem.

i have stayed here more than once and we just keep going back, the family are superb and welcoming, the food and rooms are what you would expect and we have never had cause to complain, in fact quite the opposite, i'm sure this will not be my last visit, very good value for money!!

Stayed in April 2013, 2 adults and 2 older children and highly recommend this resort and hotel. Not 5 star facilities but friendly and relaxing with traditional fresh cooked meals that were of exceptional quality. The staff really made an effort to sort out anything that we asked for.

The skiing suits all levels like most big resorts but mainly aimed at intermediates. Well groomed, extra wide slopes (some up to 100m) and didn't really queue for lifts at all. We took turns skiing each side of the valley on alternate days. A very short walk to a nearby button lift then gets you to the main Gondola for Carrosello 3000. The Mottollino area involves getting a free bus which collects outside the hotel. Overall, the slopes are a little spread out but the ski bus makes up for this. Mountain restaurants were all good and very lively, 5 euros for a giant slice of Pizza kept us going most days.

We would definately go back again, the half board option would take some beating, price wise.

We (8 of us) stayed here in January. On arrival we were allocated rooms. One of our party was not happy with the room they had, but this was quickly rectified and after a short wait they were given a lovely room. Our room was small and dark and the owner said he couldn't do anything that day but would see what he could do, and true to his word when a better room became available we were able to move.
We were not too keen on the breakfast, could have done with something warm to keep us going on the slopes. The other guests often took the pastries so there wasn't a huge amount of variety. We found the bread rolls rather dry.
We also found it hard to decide on evening meal at 9 in the morning, and sometimes the choices were a little unusual. Often we would decide on something but then change our minds during the day and eat out. I'm not sure how to make this work to help everyone. If there was nothing on the menu you liked the Pizza was excellent.
The meals we did eat in the evening were all very good.
Location is excellent, bus stop outside, boot room lovely and warm. There is also a nice slope and chair lift behind the hotel. There is a learner slope a couple of stops from the hotel. The bus service is free throughout Livigno.
Occasionally the lounge was crowded with diners waiting for the restaurant and there wasn't anywhere to sit and talk about the day. We did have some very good games of Jenga!
Overall a very pleasant stay.
The other small gripe is that we left the hotel early in the morning -think it was 4am and we only had a corridor to wait in. Luckily it wasn't snowing or raining that day or it would have been very crowded. I guess we couldn't be trusted to wait in the bar/lounge?

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the front of the hotel.

We booked this from cheapski holidays online website, 2 weeks in advance, using Neilsons. We found the hotel to be clean, warm, friendly and able to cope with everyone. They adapted to our erratic time keeping (Apres ski) with a smile and we found their food excellent, even for a vegetarian.
The ability to ski back to the hotel was a bonus and attracted us in the first place,it also gave us the option of not using the ski bus but traveling across country instead.

Room Tip: ask for a balcony, amazing views only available on corner suites.

Just returned from a week skiing in Livigno and thoroughly recommend the San Giovanni. A lovely cosy traditional style mountain hotel, with a good bar and a pleasant lounge in which to gather for after-skiing chat. A lot of the other guests there were returning to the same hotel - some having used it for the last 20 years. Rooms are immaculately clean and the bathrooms look newly upgraded. Gorgeous hot power showers! Lovely views from our second floor room at the front of the hotel. The food was also very good, with the option of a freshly baked pizza if you don't fancy what's on offer. Staff (mainly family) are friendly and very helpful. There's a good ski boot room with heated boot storage. The hotel has a bus stop right outside - very important in a resort where you go everywhere by the local free buses. We will certainly be going back to the San Giovanni next year!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are probably best, although generally there was not much noise.

Not usually one to write reviews but after reading a few bad I thought I'd share, having just returned from a weeks holiday, I found the hotel cosy clean and friendly, I travelled as a family of 6, food was fine, but I have some fussy children and there was always pizza on the menu if nothing suited which was great for us, everywhere was clean and tidy, also after reading a earlier review saying things had gone missing I can honestly say my kids left iPods iPads phones earphones everything out and nothing went missing, the rep around every evening and very helpful the ski slopes were right on your doorstep and if experienced you would be able to ski down to a few different lifts and back the bus service to and from was excellent and all in all we had a fab week at a 3star hotel which was good value for money and I fully intend to book again for next year.
