We stayed in this mountain hotel for one night on out trip over the Gran San Bernardo pass. It is located right on the Italian-Swiss border, a little lower than the highest point of the pass, just by the lake with a great view of Grand Combin. The road is winding and steep, so naturally it is open only in the summer time. The rooms are clean and quite large, but oldish, the private bathroom is well maintained. From the windows there is a great view to the surrounding mountains and at night it is extremely silent under the black starry sky. Breakfast is of Italian style (somewhat minimalistic and nothing hot offered), but coffee is lovely, as well as freshly baked croissants. There is a good souvenir shop in the hotel and the restaurant with some selection of the local dishes. There is enough private parking just in front of the hotel. We also walked around the lake, but the slopes are a too rough in places for a walk with a small child. We felt the height a bit (almost 2500 meters), so the heart beats faster.
