We stayed at the Hotel Mignon for our annual skiing trip for a week this February.
Any comments we have about the hotel itself are really positive and we would have no hesitation recommending the hotel ... it is true there are more exclusive / flashier / more expensive hotels in the area, but Hotel Mignon provides an excellent trade off between price, quality and service ... the atmosphere is relaxed and it was clear that many of the guests while we stayed there were regulars - always a good sign.
The staff are attentive and interested, without being intrusive. The rooms (we had one superior room and one standard room) were spacious & well appointed ... servicing of the rooms was flawless ... as good as we have experienced anywhere ... I think this was referred to in an another review, but the heating was set at a very high level and we had the windows open in both rooms most of the ime!
We did not use the Spa facilities (exhausted after the day skiing), but from the persepctive of a spectator, it looked excellet.
The location is about 50m from the main street, so it is convenient but not noisy. The main Ciampinoi lift is 5-7 minutes walk from the hotel - but there is shuttle in the morning to Ciampinoi and the other main gondolas.
The only draw back has nothing to do with the hotel ... for less experienced skiers (other than the nursery slopes) the gondolas deliver you to reds which for the most part could not be described as tame ... access to the blues therefore could be somewhat intimidating for some. For the less experienced skier, Corvara or Alpe de Siusi (each 40 minutes away by car) might be better options.
We will probably return, perhaps in summer time, to sample walking in the Dolomites.
