“Lovely hotel and wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

My partner and I just stayed 4 days in the Hotel Sciatori for some skiing over the New Year holiday. The hotel is located just outside of Sestriere and provides everything one needs for a relaxing and stress-free holiday, including personal shuttle service to the main town or to ski lifts at all times, and a great spa downstairs with hot tub, sauna, steam room and showers that was a perfect retreat after long days on the slopes. The rooms are cozy and clean, and the breakfast was delicious and diverse (meats and cheeses, yogurt and cereals, fruits, eggs, pizzas, quiches, pastries), as was dinner - various salads and antipasti, followed by pasta and/or soups, then a choice of different meat dishes (fish, ham, steak, chicken, wild boar), and finally homebaked pies and cakes for dessert. Each night we were happily stuffed and ready for a good night's sleep!
Overall the hotel provides a very warm and family-like atmosphere, and we cannot compliment Gianpaolo and his colleagues enough for their personalized service, hospitality and generosity. As an example, after we checked out he drove us to the bus that goes to the train stration in Oulx. After about 20 minutes the bus still had not shown up - apparently this is quite common, especially after a good snow - and we called Gianpaolo to ask for the number of a taxi. Instead, he immediately dropped what he was doing, retrieved us again and took us directly to the station (~45 minutes away) in record time so that we could make our train, then refused any compensation for his troubles. A genuinely sweet guy who literally goes out of his way to ensure the guests have no complaints, even after you have left the hotel.

just spent a very enjoyable week this hotel

LOCATION hotel is situated in borgata - a 5 minute drive from sestriere proper. it is served infrequently by public transport right outside the door but if transport is not available, the hotel offers a shuttle service for free to and from sestriere centre. it is located about a 4-5 min walk away from chairlifts. there is ski and boot deposit service across road from chairlift so this walk does not need to be done with boots and skis. if you dont wish to walk however, again shuttle service available through hotel

ROOMS pleasant rooms. comfortable for our needs and always kept very clean

SERVICE have never stayed at a hotel with service like this. the owner treated us like his children, sorting out anything and everything we needed without us having to ask. words cannot do justice to service offered by gianpaolo

FOOD very good food. fresh bread and cold cuts, and tasty fresh sweets/pastries served every morning. evening meal menu changes every day. very abundant, interesting choices and all plates very tasty

overall definitely 5*

Location is great - Borgata is a sweet and quiet area, and only a 5 minute drive away from the centre, with a shuttle bus that passes right outside the hotel (if the hotel owner does not offer to give you a lift himself!). The main ski lifts of the area are a very short walk away - and you may leave your skis and boots with the ski rental shop that is just across the road from those lifts - so no need to carry them far!
Service was fantastic - owners and staff were always ready and v. happy to help!
Room was very clean and comfortable. Hotel was not noisy at all! There is a well stocked bar and cosy lounge area with a TV and fire place.
Food - stuffed myself with the delicious buffet breakfast daily - fresh bread, warm croissants, cereal, yogurts, a selection of home-made desserts... :) We had dinner at the hotel a number of times too and the food was lovely - a 4 course meal and the menu changes daily.
Skiing in the area is amazing. From Borgata you have access to all other areas in the VIALATEA area.
Overall, simply excellent value for money - greatly recommended !!

I spent a week here in March 2012. It is one of the few hotels in Sestriere that combine fantastic value for money with genuine hospitality. The rooms were well apportioned, clean and the food wholesome and plentiful. Within an easy 5 minute walk to the chairlifts in Sestriere Borgata. So nice to feel valued and welcome - a rarity in a ski resort.

The atmosphere in the hotel is very relaxed and friendly, the owners and staff are really happy to help, we had a fabulous holiday.

The rooms are beautifully clean and comfortable.

The food was fabulous, our mixed family group of adults and children relished each evening meal.

Borgata is a quiet and intimate village linked to Sestriere, the ski lifts have direct access to great skiing and good links to other Milky Way resorts.

Overall excellent value hotel and great family resort.

  • Liked — Relaxed, friendly, welcoming atmosphere, fabulous food.

Ended up staying in this hotel after our last minute booking fell through and we were left struggling to find somewhere to go 48 hours before we needed to fly out for some skiing.

This hotel is approx. 1½ hours from Turin airport and is in a pretty village called Borgata 4 km outside of Sestriere (as is the Hotel Banchetta which has a horrifically priced bar and pretty hideous food by all accounts !). The village is linked to Sestriere by ski lifts (obviously) and a bus service (approx. every 2 hours, 1 euro each way ! (if it turns up)). There is not much to amuse you in Borgata at night, only one "bar", with the other pub closed during the winter season ?! 2 restaurants (a typico and a pizza place) complete the amenities - great if you want to get away from it all !

The hotel itself is functional, with well looked after well heated rooms. The food is very good (the breakfast more functional though) and the quality of the service by the hotel owners and their staff is superb.

The ski resort is pretty dire for beginners, and as a high intermediate we probably got the best use out of the linked Milky Way resorts. However, the high winds closed lifts to Sauze D'Oulx and other main resorts the majority of days, so we were restricted to the Sestriere slopes which you could tire of after a day at the most.
