“Very good - but beware the ankle biters”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a lovely hotel in the remote part of duty free Italy. The snow was great. The proximity to the lifts super.

We had a superior room, South facing (what we booked), but only after we were given a North facing, but equally nice room.

The disaster was this was school holidays and the noise of dozens (literally) of children in the surrounding tables made meal times something to be endured. The hotel was full. On the third last night the maitre d' asked why I was having no desert. I replied I could not endure the noise and parents rocking prams in and out between my wife and my chairs any longer. In fact was taking a plate of dessert items from the dining room.

I suggested that couples (which made up about one third) should be given one area and family groups the other area. Simple good hotel keeping. Thinking about the guest experience. Some of the staff were great. Some looked down their collective noses so far it was a wonder they could see past their upper lip.

To my surprise, we did get moved and the last meals were much more enjoyable. We were not the only couple to feel this was a problem. One honeymoon couple from Ireland were glad to be leaving for Milan.

So avoid school holidays (British, European and East European) AND
Ask for a table away from the kids.

Room Tip: ask for a South facing (sunny) room on the top floor. great views and no noise from the hard floor a...

Arrived here after a 400 mile drive from the Nurburgring in Germany, the place is lovely, the room was huge, the staff were very polite and helpful - just what we needed!

Great view from our balcony, where we watched an impressive lightning storm in the distance the first night.

We originally booked the Concordia but got an email a few weeks before our trip saying we'd been moved. Our fears were unfounded, this place is spot on!

Can't get in this year, it's fully booked!

Trip was July 2011, not 2012.

Stayed in the Sky suite with a tub in the middle of the room that we used one time only. Otherwise this room was not really a suite more of a large room. No sitting area. We missed that.

The hotel is almost brand new and nicely done, the rooms are nice with a good size. The restaurant is very nice, good service and the Maitre D was very effective.

Would like to give them 5 stars but can only give 4 because of the location. Its in the middle of the town but Livigno is a quite spread out town and to go back and forth to the slopes you need to take the bus, the bus takes from 10-30 minutes x 2 so you loose about 30-40 min / day riding the bus. Thats a major reason why Livigno cannot reach the highest scores. Otherwise its rather cheap in the town taxfree as it is. Food and restaurants are not expensive so if you are on a budget Livigno can be a good choice.

Room Tip: NIces view is toward south. Double room are rather large so you do not really need a suite.

We went here for a family ski holiday. The hotel is in a fantastic location, plenty of restaurants nearby and literally right on the slopes. You can pretty much walk out the hotel door and onto the ski lift.

We had a family type room which had a balcony that looked out onto the ski lift. The room itself was laid out well and very comfortable. I couldn't fault the breakfast, great variety of food and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.

The hotel has a swimming pool and leisure centre which was never too busy. Id recommend coming here after skiing everyday to relax before dinner.

All in all I cannot fault this hotel. If I was coming back to Livigno I would try stay here again.

Very nice hotel and facilities. A great SPA with various treatments. A bit pricey. Every day all kind of activities:yoga, guided walks and hiking or biking. Good rooms, well maintained and at high standard. The restaurant, the maitre, the food, are excellent one of the best in the 4*Superior class. the dinner is gourmet and breakfast is great. service everywhere at the hotel was a top notch. Loved every moment.
Will be back

Coming from a poor hotel in Switzerland, this was a refreshing breath of fresh air. The hotel looks just newly refurbished, although it has apparently been completed 6 years ago! The rooms are modern and maintained to very high standards, and the restaurant is worth one of those famous stars. The wine list is comprehensive, and, better of all, reasonably priced (also thanks to the zero-VAT status of Livigno). The breakfast was sumptuous and the service impeccable. I hope to be back soon!
