Stylish, super-clean contemporary hotel, with very reasonable price. Be sure to enjoy the amazing dinners at Ristorante D'Andrea, within walking distance, as well as the antique car collection in the basement.

Looove the artisticly decorated hotel. Staying here was very enjoyable. We stayed in a loft room that can occupy 3 people (2 single beds and a sofa bed). Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had delicious croissant and juicy bacon for breakfast. Too bad we only stayed for one night. We will be back!!!

This is a very modern, beautiful hotel. The rooms are big, very clean and the bathroom has a great shower. Friendly staff, nice breakfast. The garden is big and quiet. The hotel is in a small village, good place to visit Piemonte.

A very good hotel with friendly staff, good knowledge of English, service minded. If this hotel was located in a big twon, like Torino, it would cost an arm and a leg. Decent size rooms with decent bathrooms. Very clean. We had a nice stay for 3 nights, with one dinner and a wine tasting session included. The location is... More

I found myself in Barge for business, and my client recommended that I stay here. It was excellent. The rooms were immaculate and the beds were quite comfortable--a welcome amenity after an overnight flight from the US. The hotel has a clean, modern feel, and several of the open areas look out on beautiful landscapes of the Piemonte countryside. Best... More

We stayed here on a Piemonte biking trip, and rode col d'agnel and col sestriere - both awesome. best part is you are very short distance from Mt Viso which has great hiking and nice little ski town about 20 minute drive from barge. excellent restaurants nearby (Andrea). steer clear of pizza place across from Alter - euro jerks!

The hotel is located in an old factory that has been completely renovated for the Turin Winter Olympic Games in 2006. It is now a modern and quite posh hotel, with a lot of art pieces spread all over the place. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. Did not have the chance to try the food but they have... More

we have chosen this because of the good reviews here and because of the fantastic offer (4 nights for 300 EUR). Dogs are allowed by the way which helped for our decision. the staff is very friendly and the location beautiful, including a small room with fire place for your reading. also the bar is quite nice, offering an extensive...

Not just a hotel, but a satisfying and complete experience. Inspiring architecture, furnishings and artwork. Attention to detail is remarkable. Homemade food and local, fresh produce makes breakfast very enjoyable. Surprisingly nearby, although with novice slopes, are ski resorts like Crissolo. The Hotel also boasts its own, unique vintage Italian car collection -definitely worth seeing! The staff are friendly and... More

staff was very friendly. they were happy to help us even with quite unusual problems. Room and building perfect. breakfeast for Italian standards very good. very good location for mountain activities around mon viso. barge itself is not very exciting. nice cafe with good gelato on the main plaza. Ask for a visit to the classic cars!
