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

We booked our trip via Carole from Pilaski who catered for everything else and helped sort out our wedding venue, I can't reccomend her enough. We have been away... More

Lovely hotel with stunning views. Easy to access slopes - 50 metre walk from blue run or ski to door from a red run. Staff friendly and fun- always paying attention to detail. Food plentiful and amazing. 4 courses every night. Buffet style continental breakfast. Fantastic selection of wines -reasonably priced. I agree with previous reviewers that the hotel walls... More

Stayed at the Lion Noir in Feb 2013 while ski-ing in Pila. From the look of other hotels in the resort this looked to be the best and we were not disappointed. The hotel is right on the side of red run no 2 and any skier should easily be able to negotiate the path from back to the hotel... More

I went to Pila and stayed in the Lion Noir with my partner on 20th January this year. Great hotel, next to the piste (note you can only ski to door on a red run, but it's only a minute walk from the blue). We loved the hotel, the food was delicious and we took advantage of the pool and... More
