I was recently skiing in Bardonecchia and because I wanted a single that we had to pick Des Geneys. It was rated *** so we were not worried about the choice of hotel. I can only say the staff were great trying to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Because Bardonecchia has no night life at all the hotel tried its best to make the evening before dinner as lively as it could. There were one couple staying at the hotel and this was there 13th visit which must say something!
The hotel has a mini-bus which runs in the morning to take skier to Campo Smith and does 1 run back in late afternoon at 4:30. If you want to return to the hotel any earlier than that there is a free local bus service which runs every 20 minutes. The local bus stops at the bottom of the road and all you have to do is to walk around 300 yards to the hotel. The hotel does have it own ski store which is heated but I would recommend that you rent a locker at Campo Smith to store skis and boots as it is a pig to do this walk carrying skis and wearing boots.
The resort itself as I stated before is very quiet with virtually no nightlife with few taxi's so even if your tried to get to an event it is an event itself to get back to the hotel unless it is based in the main town centre which is very close. The skiing was fine when we were there in mid January 2014 as 1.3 meters of snow fell giving fresh powder most days. At Campo Smith all of the sking is done with trees around giving good sight lines even in flat light which can't be said about the Jafferau as most of the good skiing is above the tree line.
