“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

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.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2010

At 2469 meters altitude you will be assured of fresh air, great views and a chance to join the mile-high club without ever leaving terra firma.
Atop the Great St Bernard Pass, which has seen Julius Caesar and Napoleon cross here before you and I, lies Hotel Italia, a perfect overnight stay when travelling to Italy from NW Europe or v.v..
Very reasonable rates, the whole building done up in the most amazing wood panelling and with a restaurant of surprising quality for such a remote spot, this was a definite highlight of our most recent Italy tour.
Like the pass itself, the hotel is only open during the non-snowy season and especially when driving up from the Italian side, be prepared for about a 20 degrees Celcius drop in temperature.... but the air freshness and cleanliness index shooting up to 100% as well.....plus there's the St Bernard dogs to admire, as well!
