Lovely family run small hotel right on the piste! Walk out of the boot room click your skis on and go - what could be better. Our room faced the piste and had a balcony, it was well decorated, had a huge comfortable double bed with en-suite and safe, the heating in the room was fully controllable. The room was next to the lift but we couldn't hear it at all. You could have a plentiful buffet style breakfast and even a boiled egg to set you up for the day. Our package included a packed lunch which was more than adequate (but take some butter from the breakfast buffet). Supper began with a brilliant antipasto, so good that some nights I missed the main course to favour it! The meals were varied and of a good standard. We stopped over New Year and the gala meal was excellent. There was WiFi available in the social areas downstairs (code required). My only slightly negative comment is that the social area near the front door was sometimes a little cool, mainly due to the boot room door/front door opening regularly. If you want extra security for your ski gear remember to take a small padlock for the cage lockers, in the boot room, however, we did not find this necessary. The guy who owned it was at first quite, this could be conceived as a little grumpy, however, once you made the effort to socialise with him he was really nice, advising us on which wine to choose; the red wine was very nice and ranged from 12 - 24 euros per bottle and the Prosecco was only 10 euros a bottle (great value for a hotel!). All the staff were very helpful and worked very hard. We had a fabulous holiday 29/12 - 05/01/14 and by the way Pila is an amazing intermediate resort, beginners are well catered for and advanced skiers have some testing runs. We will definitely return to this hotel again in the future - Would recommend!
