I spent a week with my friends in Dente del Gigante in February 2013. The hotel location - on the mountain, the road leading to the Nationa park, approximately 3-4 km from Courmayour, close to the Mont Blanc tunnel, 16 km from Chamonix. As we had a rented car we found no problem with moving around, though close to the... More

We stayed here two nights, taking a break while on the TMB. I can't provide high enough marks for how delightful and helpful Sara and Francesca were. They did our laundry, made wonderful capacinos at b'fast and Sara even drove us back and forth across town to the Mineral Spa. We also enjoyed wine and cheese with the owner one... More

I stayed here for two nights, and by far one of the best hotels in the TMB. People were very friendly, rooms were spacious and clean with TV. It's very close to the cable car service from La Palud that takes you to top of Courmayeur and also close to nice restaurants. Sara was incredibly helpful. The breakfast spread was... More

We arrived after a few days in the mountians and found this place. The staff were wonderful and looked after us very well. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast excellent. I could not believe the value of this place. I will recommend it to anyone going near. Thank you.

I stayed at Dente del Gigante for a few days in February 2014 during a ski holiday with my friends. I do not often leave reviews, however on this occasion I could not resist just to say thank you to the wonderful staff at the hotel who made our stay so pleasant. Sara and Francesca were incredibly helpful, accommodating and... More

The negatives first - transport isn't a forte of Courmayeur and La Palud isn't within walking distance of the centre but that's about the limit of criticism of this wonderful small hotel. There is no evening restaurant here (a fact which isn't hidden from prospective guests) but the staff could not have been more accommodating whether it came to recommending... More

We have now stayed in this hotel three times and hope to go many more times. It is a real gem and a special place. The building is charming surrounded by some of the best views of Mont Blanc and inside it is cosy, aesthetic and super clean. The staff are among the most welcoming we have ever come across,... More

I had the best winter holiday ever! Extremely cozy hotel with good breakfast and nice rooms. There are 2 parking lots 30 seconds away from the hotel, but the hotel itself has a small parking lot. Great staff and service.They were nice enough to switch our rooms when the childrens room was a floor above. There is a ski rental... More

What a fantastic place. One of the best Bed and breakfast type hotels we've ever stayed in! Beautiful views, pleasant, attentive staff, clean rooms, close to the cable car which goes to Mont blanc, wonderful breakfast, close to excellent restaurants and amazing hiking experiences. Price is the best we found in the area at this high season tourist time. Can... More

A welcome reprieve from our trekking day on the TMB. note that if you are walking the TMB, you need to get a bus here, as it is about four km from the town centre. It is easy to do so. The tourist office is where you will arrive. Next door is the bus place, where you can buy bus... More
