“A nice, pleasant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I did not select this hotel, but my partner for our trip did. We took public transportation, and the bus stops next to this little circle which makes getting to the hotel a tiny bit confusing (it's a walkway uphill and behind the transportation building). If you drive a car, you take a brief quick branch from the main road. I believe she selected this place on the basis of the Lonely Planet guide, and it's a fine place to stay.

It's a tiny ways north outside downtown, but that's a close if slightly hilly walk (you are in the mountains so you expect this). The downtown is only 1-2 blocks away. The hotel is perfectly located for regional transportation: we visited the hot springs resort down the Valley (St. Didier), took the cable car over to Chamonix), castle viewing further down Valley and the town of Aosta itself.

The elevation avoids the summer heat of the plains surrounding Milan, but we did have thunderstorms.

I think our room was on the 3rd (2nd) floor. We had choices of internal and external stairs (nice if not raining or snowing)).

Breakfast was fine. It's what I look for in a European hotel. Our last had the hotel inundated by a bus load of Japanese tourists. The staff did their best, and they handled the flood fine.

Our visit was in summer a couple years before the last year I placed, maybe, I should redo the month (just subtract a couple years, but we were there in July).

We spent four nights here before moving on to St. Bernard.

Room Tip: Sorry I have no specific room tips. I thought all the rooms we saw were nice. The hotel itself mostl...

this place is really nice. the staff are most helpful and it runs a bus to the lift for the slopes. the room was very nice but it was hard to get English TV and some rooms have showers but ours didn't. the breakfast was very good but the waitress spoke very little if not no English. the hotel is just a few minutes drive to the gondolas and a few minutes walk to the center of town. i have stayed here a few times and would have no problem staying here again!

Room Tip: as for a room with a shower if you want one. although they do have baths

The owners , Patrizia and Andrea have created a warm and welcoming hotel which provided an outstanding service on our ski ing holiday in early February. Nothing seemed too much trouble.

Bedroom accommodation was spacious, warm, modern and spotless. Breakfast was a magnificent spread with a variety of beautifully homemade savoury and sweet options, alongside the more usual continental breakfast choices.

The public rooms were warm ( with log fire in the evenings) and welcoming and the owners seemed happy to serve hot or cold drinks from the bar at any time with a smile.

There was a flexible and efficient mini-bus transfer to and from the dolonne lift which combined with the opportunity to store boots and skis at the first station, Plan Chercrout , meant no heaving 'kit' to and from the slopes.

The hotel is a short walk to the Via Roma and a wide range of good restaurants.

Room Tip: we had a room at the front, our friends had a room at the back, both had little balconies and shutte...

Warm, spacious hotel in quiet location, convenient for the old part of town and its many restaurants. Good sized, en suite bedrooms with both bath and shower and plenty of hot water. TV in bedrooms and Games Room. Large lounge with log fire and small bar.
Very helpful, friendly staff.
Magnificent breakfasts with home-made bread and pastries, boiled eggs or omelette with as much tea or coffee as you can drink.
Rapid and efficient taxi service to and from the bottom ski lift.
Garage and ski and boot store if required.
Be prepared for old fashioned sheets and blankets rather than a duvet on the bed.

We booked this hotel on the strength of recommendations from both this site and Momentum Ski Travel and were delighted to find all aspects of our stay as promised.

Warm and friendly service, generous sized room, excellent minibus to ski lift and THE BREAKFAST which is every bit as good as suggested. Tip: get down early for the warm, freshly cooked omelette and quiche.

It is centrally located with plenty of good restaurants just round the corner.

This was our second trip to this hotel. Andrea and Patrizia are perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. When we had to leave very early before breakfast, they were really concerned that we would go without breakfast, so went and got us some croissants. They both do everything they can to make sure that everything runs smoothly, and they do it with good grace and happiness. They like to please people with their service, and this in my experience is really rare. The breakfast remains a thing of wonder....home made jam, marmalade, tarts and flans.

I booked this hotel very quickly without bothering to read much of the reviews. I just saw that it was one of the best so I went for it without much thought. I've trusted Trip Advisor several times before and I never was disappointed. And once again, Trip Advisor was a great help. Probably I'll be repeating most points raised before but here I go: 1) great location - just a corner away from the where most busses start/ stop their journey. 2) Patrizia (owner)'s smile was as warm as a large welcoming fireplace 3) The hotel itself is sooo charming, so typically alpine with such a cosy atmosphere everywhere 4) the breakfast was devine, even better than i thought 5) my room was sparkling clean - i mean the shower seemed brand new! AND i had a fantastic view 6) the price was not horrendous at all 7) Courmayeur is a gorgeous town. Well done to all the team - management and staff - the combined effort result in a 4star superior hotel and not simply 3 star for sure!!!. Sicuramente un arrivederci!!!! Joseph da Malta
