Before leaving on our trip we read the below reviews and were horrified and sent some strongly worded emails to directski (we booked through them). Directski ensured we were staying in the rooms on the 2nd floor to minimise the noise and told us the hotel was under strict instructions to keep our rooms tidy.

We arrived with very low expectations and ear plugs but we were actually pleasantly suprised. The rooms were clean, new towels provided everyday, the location was fantastic for the ski school, the bar staff were friendly and had great english especially Ezo.

Breakfast was basic but had everything you needed and theres plenty of stuff there that you can make for lunch if you are on a tight budget. We ate in Bennys Bar a lot and thought the food was good. The DJ John is good craic and will play whatever you ask or if the bar is quiet he will put on a dvd - good selection.

Bennys Bar is where Directski operate most of the Apres Ski activities from, pub quizz, karoke etc, we signed up for everything so found it really handy just having to go downstairs to join in on all of that rather than going to another bar.

Overall the 8 of us had a fantastic week and i would recommend the hotel for any group going for the apres ski as much as the skiing - another thing the barmen and security guard were so decent to us at night when we came in drunk and couldnt find keys etc. Under no circumstances would i recommend this to a family, you have to walk through Benny's Bar to get out of the hotel so its not ideal children seeing drunken louts, not a romamtic place either.

On the 2nd floor the noise wasnt bad at all and most of us didnt even use the ear plugs we brought, there was a dodgy smell at times but it wasn't nauseating and dont worry none of us got our passport taken off us/made pay €70...behave and that wont happen.

Recommend to big groups who are up for a bit of craic and not expecting 5 star quality!

We arrived at the hotel having read the recent reports with some concerns !!! True, there is a definite whiff from the bar toilets, however this is not unique to this hotel and there is a problem in Livigno. Location fantastic, quick drag lift from the rear of the hotel takes you over to the new gondola, fab. The staff are really friendly, John was more than willing to play whatever music you favoured and on a quiet night was happy to op to move away from the decks and show a movie. If you are looking for a family hotel, stay away, if you are only interest in skiing and sleep, stay away, if you want a good basic hotel with a bit of craic and a sense of humour, book book book !! We had a ball ......

This is easily the worst place I have ever stayed in. It had the potential to be an excellent hotel due to its location in the resort. The only good thing i could say about the hotel is that the barman is friendly and helpful. Unfortunately these are the only positive things I have to say about this place. The rooms were tiny and filthy. The triple room was barely big enough for two people. The restaurant and bar area smelled of raw sewerage so I would not recommend anyone to eat in Benny's Bar. The music was playing so loud that you could clearly hear the DJ on the second floor. The music could be heard from 8 in the morning to half two at night even though the bar was completely empty. The management were unreasonable when you tried to talk to them and you can see why it is such a badly run hotel when you meet them. I would recommend anyone who is thinking of staying here to pay a few extra euro to change to a different hotel.

I booked this accomodation as part of a ski package deal with Directski.com. I will be complaining to them directly.

The rooms very basic. I could accept this but the noise is ridiculous. The bar below has entertainment nighlty and the sound is audible in the rooms above, the bass on the first night i stayed actually made the beds vibrate lol.

Stay here if your happy to join in and dont mind grotty rooms as well. Otherwise avoid.

I travelled to this hotel with a group of friends. First impressions were ok...I wasnt expecting 4 star but when we got to our rooms the smell comming from the bathroom was just awful!! during our stay we had to keep opening our window in the room to make the smell bearable!! Bathroom was also dirty when we arrived. The noise from the bar downstairs went on until about 2am every morning which I didnt mind because I realised that Apres Ski was a big part of sking holidays but the fact that the bar was deserted every night made me wonder did they really have to keep the music going all night???..Food in this place is average to say the least but to be honast the smell of the place would stop anybody from wanting to eat here!
Staff are friendly to your face but not so behind your back which I found extremely annoying however Alex the barman was really lovely.
Overall livigno is a fantastic place but this hotel ruined our holiday. Between the rude staff (apart from alex) and the unbelieveable stench of the place nobody could ever pay me enough money to ever go back! Without a doubt the WORST HOTEL EVER!!

Original Gali is a badly run, disgusting establishment.The rooms are dirty, cramped and smelly. Loud music thumping till 2am every morning means you will find it very hard to sleep. A pungent smell of sewerage permeates the bar and bedrooms on a daily basis. During my stay, the management were very rude and disrespectful to myself many of the other guests. You could not pay me to return to this 'hotel'. My advice to all travellers to Livingo would be to avoid Original Gali and avoid Bennys Pub at all costs.
