“Good enough”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Just returned from stay in these apartments. Stayed in the 1-2 People Apartment in the Attic part of the Chalet. I have been to Livigno loads of times and this is the furthest I've stayed away from the town centre which i suppose is reflected in the price. Its well situated with a bus stop outside to the slopes and a supermarket opposite.

The apartments were clean, warm, quite and has everything you need. Its a bit of a walk if you fancy going to the town centre but do-able

The only negative would be that if you're over 4ft tall then you'll need to wear a helmet if you're staying in the Attic area as there is not much walking room!

Just returned from stay in these apartments and have to say i was quite impressed . Travelled with two friends and both opted for the 2 room apartments ( rooms 3 and 4 ). Both were very spacious with good sized kitchens and lovely views , especially from the bedroom balcony of room 4 which looks directly onto the slopes. Both rooms had 2 balconys , were clean and warm with towels supplied. Very well situated for the ski bus which stopped virtually outside every 15 mins. Only short walk to gondola 3000 but 30mins to the heart of town. Great little supermarket 20 metres away , no dearer than in town.
Must point out that the 2nd bedroom in room 4 is an attic room with limited head space , probably better suited to kids , and unusual for self catering apartments not to supply a kettle ! Luckily we knew this in advance and took our own. But these are minor points , overall the apartments are well equiped.
Would absolutely stay again and look forward to returning soon.

Great value with Neilson. Excellent apartment for four, always warm and stocked with every utensil needed. Great location, bus stop outside and Carosello 3000 gondola in walking distance.

The only negetive would be the boot room, it could have been better heated/ventilated!

Very spacious kitchen and dining area with two good sized bedrooms. 2 x balcony with views of nursery slopes and mountains beyond. Bus stop only 10 metres next to a shop selling milk, cereal etc. A great place to stay for the price paid. Gondola 3000 only 2 bus stops away, if you prefer to ski the other side only 6 or 7 stops away. Very happy with this accommodation.

Good points first:

Plenty of hot water and heating (the latter can be controlled by thermostat)
Towels supplied
Very good shower
Quiet location (though rooms at front are nearer the road - see later)
Good condition furnishings
Roomy apartment

La Gualt apts were let down slightly by the following points:

Ski room was useless - extremely cramped and no warm airflow so boots and skis etc did not dry overnight
No exterior lighting - pitch dark outside stairway to be negotiated in snow and ice?!
Kitchen equipment was lacking, no kettle or microwave oven (La Roina next door had both)
The positioning of the TV did not facilitate comfortable viewing (no English channels either)
An apartment that sleeps 4 people had sofa space for only 2
Front apts suffer traffic noise and staff/residents running their cars to warm them at 5am right outside the front window

In summary, can be good value but my advice is if you want to stay in the Amerikan/Florin area of Livigno and the price is comparable, chose La Roina just up the road

Room Tip: Back of hotel or on upper floors

The place looks nice from the outside and I'm sure is better if you are not in the basement. Our living area had one window which was small and ceiling height and there was a 1m gap between the window and the outside wall, so hardly any light comes in. Windows in the rooms and bathroom open into the internal cavity.

Other than that the rooms are very nice and there is plenty of space. Good bathroom and well stocked kithcen with good facilities. Lounge area in the same room as the kithcen is pointless. The TV is above the door and angled towards the 2 seater sofa which was not much use for 4 people! Alternative is kitchen table chairs. But I guess it was a good excuse to go out every night!

Worse points to note, there is a cow shed opposite and at times the smell was pretty bad. Also on 2 or 3 nights a TV either in the appartment building (there are some residents) or next door (hard to tell from the basement!) went on very loud and there was some sort of repetitive chanting for an hour or so each time. This was around 2 or 3 am.

Worst of all on our last day we had to be up at 6ish as the 1 way tunnel out of Livigno closes at 9am for outgoing traffic until 16:00 (I think there is an alternative route but no good for coaches). The room above us the people left about 2am which disturbed us but was fine. Then the cleaners came around 03:30 and started hoovering and banging around and talking to each other above the vacum noise. They then finished around 5am and stood outside our door talking waiting for us to leave at 7ish.

This was a shame as the resort was stunning, great food, people and views, good skiing too. Forget about any shopping though, everything was really expensive except alcohol.

In summary there is nothing terrible, but nothing to go back for. It was very cheap for us, so maybe we were just unlucky to be in the basement, or maybe that is why it was cheap.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get a basement room. No light or air.

Our apartment for two persons was under the roof with two large rooms, kitchen/dining room and bedroom with bathroom. Satelite tv is in dinning room, that is shame, because we love to watch tv from bed. The apartment was really clean and beds were made on arrival. Some towels are provided. For your information in apartments is avaible WIFI. Payment is 10E per whole week.
The kitchen is well equipped with a fridge, oven and hob although no kettle. Plenty of pots and pans, plates, mugs, glasses and cutlery. But there is no dish cloth.
Small shop is opposite which sells everything else you'll need (including VERY cheap alcohol!). In front of this shop is ski bus stop. It is around 25m from apartments door

The apartments are located at the end of the San Rocco area of Livigno. It but you can use ski bus to travel to the centre. It will takes around 10 minutes.

Buses in Livigno are operating between 8am-8pm.

Overall, I can realy recommend Livigno and La Gualt apartments for you winter holiday.

All shop in Livigno are duty free so take lot of money with you - alcohol, cigaretes, parfums and for example Oakley sunglasses are very cheap. (cheaper than in Czech republic)
