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.
