We booked this accommodation through Crystal due to the budget cost of staying here compared to almost all other accommodation. Having read the reviews before traveling we were slightly apprehensive about the accommodation. However, we were pleasantly surprised and relieved upon arriving. Our rooms were ready when we arrived at 3 pm and the check in staff very pleasant. We'd asked to have two apartments next to each other and we got this without any issue. The apartments were a good size and the kitchenette was adequate for cooking a few meals. It was very clean and while the furnishing were basic (as expected) the beds were comfy and everything was functional. There isn't a kettle provided so if you like drinking tea then a travel kettle is recommended.
We didn't eat in the hotel restaurants but there did always seems to be a good few people there. The shop in the block was pretty well stocked and quite reasonably priced.
The hotel pool (and the pool in the main village) are strict that swimmers do need a swimming cap and don't sell them so be prepared. There was a bit of noise from the corridors first thing in the morning that might disturb those wanting a lie in and this would probably be worse during busier times - there isn't much sound proofing between the rooms.
The access to the ski slopes was great from the accommodation with both the chair up Sestriere and the Gondola over to Sauze d'Oulx and San Sicario accessible in 2 minutes. It was a slightly longer walk up the hill to the main resort bars and restaurants but at least this meant it was downhill on the way back.
Overall we had a great trip here and think it was good value for the cost.
