We stayed as a party of 10 (7 in the newer apartments on the roadside and 3 in the older apartments behind). The newly renovated apartments are stunning, with solid wood doors, washstands, wardrobes all made by the owner, they are lovely. With 2 modern bathrooms each with a generous shower and well kitted our kitchen they were a lovely surprise when we walked in. There’s a lovely large table in the kitchen with bench seating surrounding it (we could easily seat 10 people round it) Downstairs is the boot room, plenty of room for skis etc and heated boot rack. The location was perfect for us. Situated in front of the Doss 18 button lift we could drop the kids for ski school and ski straight over to the gondola station carosello 3000. The apartments are opposite the trauma clinic (we didn’t need it fortunately) and there was little noise. The red and blue buses also stop directly outside the door so we had instant access to skiing over in Mottolino with a quick ride on the bus. The Galli supermarket was a 5 min walk. The Francescato are lovely, yes the older apartments are a little dated but the new block are stunning, a lot of work has gone into them and I’d stay there again in a heartbeat. Free use of the sauna downstairs (complete with hand carved door). Great location, great resort and great skiing!! My photos don’t do it justice!

Lovely stay in clean, tidy, albeit quite small rooms in livigno. Breakfast had a good selection with fresh coffee. Ski lockers in basement were lockable and heated. Would definitely stop here again - good value for money

Just back from a week staying at Garni Francescato. We had one of the hotel rooms. Very clean (made up every day!) and warm. The hotel provided breakfast and had a lovely breakfast room down the stairs and laid on cereals, some cooked items (scrambled egg, beans, bacon & hard boiled eggs) as well as standard items like bread, croissants, meats, cheese, jam as well as juices and tea & coffee. Great to fill up on every morning. They had a lovely ski closet with each room having a locker assigned. In the lockers you had room for skis/boards and 2 compartments for boots that had heated pipes coming into for you to slide your boots over so they dried and were warm in the morning! Each locker is lockable and you get a key when you check in. The other big plus for this hotel is its location. Its in the San Rocco area so near the big Carousel 3000 cable car. 30 seconds walk from the hotel to the street and there is a bus stop there. Jump on either the blue or red route bus (free buses) and they will have you at the 3000 cars in 5 mins. There are 2 other stops in between for those using ski school or wanting to get on the nursery slopes. There are a number of great restaurants and bars within walking distance with popular ones we used being Bellavista Restaurant (2 mins away), Homelywood Bar (3mins), Marcos Bar (5 mins) and Daphne's (2mins). The hotel itself has a bar (breakfast area) that opens 4pm-10pm if you don't want to wander out but fancy a beer/wine. All in all a great hotel and if we come back to Livigno again we'll definitely look to secure accommodation here.

We booked through neilson and had a lovely week here. We stayed on the top floor and the apartment was very spacious and very clean. The local restaurants were brilliant and very cheap. The practice slopes are a minute walk away and the local supermarket is a 2 minute walk. The apartment had everything we needed. The resort is in a valley with ski lifts going up each side. The buses are brilliant, you jump on a bus and it does a loop up and down the valley so you just jump off when you get to the slope you want to ski. Brilliant skiing and atmosphere. Everyone was so friendly and don’t forget to buy yourself a bargain as lots of cheap items as tax free. Much better than France and your money goes a lot further.

Had a great time here in late January 2018. Booked with Neilson and was very pleased. There were six of us, 3 in each room which were spacious with plenty of storage for all of us. Hotel was clean and the breakfast room/bar was welcoming with hot bacon/sausage/eggs for breakfast. Possible to near as damn it ski onto the car park and also a short 200m walk to a lift in the morning. Ski bus stop outside. Great boot room with heater and lockable storage. Well situated for bars and restuarants. Would recommend this hotel for sure, it ticks all the boxes for a great ski trip.
