We stayed here for a week from 13 December. It is a very well-run family hotel, with the hosts - Davide and Flower, taking pains to ensure guests are comfortable and have their needs attended to.
The food was excellent (so we never ate dinner out), the advice on all our skiing and additional recreational needs was great. The location is good, near the center of Sestriere and a short 10 minute walk from the ski slopes and lifts (where you can store your ski gear - thanks to arrangements Shackleton has) If we go back to Sestriere, this is definitely the place we would stay again.
There is a public pool right next to the hotel, which can be accessed easily. It is heated (er... relatively speaking...).
The hotel made arrangements for us for ski rental/storage, for beginner ski lessons, for bookings of a husky sled ride, for swimming pool tickets...
For families with kids (ours are 8 and 10), this is an excellent base for your ski holiday!
