We have now stayed four times at The Lion Noir and have enjoyed every one or our four visits. The staff are friendly, the food, service and rooms cannot be faulted. We have already booked for 2017. All you need to know is to look at the view from the Lion Noir - Mont Blanc / Monta Rosa / Matterhorn... More

This is the third hotel we have stayed at in Pila (the others were Chalet des Alpes and Etoile De Neige) and we thought this was the best for the following reasons. 1) location: it is directly across from the gondola so very convenient for a trip to aosta, it is also very close to the Yeti restaurant for lunch...

We had a pleasant stay in the hotel during christmas. The staff was very friendly, the rooms where simple but good and the food was typically Italien, fresh ingredients and good of taste. The location is perfect situated on the slope.

This hotel has some unquestionable positives, but unfortunately left us slightly disappointed after our stay. It's situation is almost perfect - for the keen skier, you literally strap on your boots in the hotel basement, pick up your skis, and after a 50 metre walk you are on the piste. This is of value not only at the start of... More

I have skied for years in France, and only recently discovered the joy of skiing in Italy. The thing that really makes the difference is the people (although the scenery of the Dolomites and the Aosta Valley is also a major plus). Whether it is on the slopes, in the villages or in the hotels, the local people tend to... More

Very comfortable stay. Rooms clean but very basic, and walls a bit thin. Very clean hotel with good food service and staff. Ideally located for the slopes, but very quite in the evening due to mountain location away from town. We will return.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the walls are worse than paper thin, I think they have built-in amplifiers. We were in a group of 38 grandparents, parents and kiddies aged from 3 months to 7 years. The smaller ones could (and did) cry in the night, waking neighbours all round. Our daughter walked around the skiroom at 4 in the... More
