It is quite old, underinvested hotel. We've booked it through a travel agency as "3 star hotel, waiting for the 4th star". It must have waited long time and it will take ages to get it ... Theoretically location is not bad, quite close to slopes and lifts, however you have to get there going down on 44 metal step stairs and then passing through the street. I thought it would be the biggest issue, but that was not so bad. The rooms are very small and not very comfortable. Food was very bad - just few examples: breakfast - fried and stirred eggs were served cold, already when they wer delivered to the restaurant. Quality of food for dinner was not an Italian level (of course with some exceptions) - I tried the worst risotto in my life in that hotel. Finally we got sick (stomach issues) after few days of eating there, and we were not the only one with such an issue. Why to go there 0 we had one reason, skiing. Maybe we had bad luck, but when we arrived the cable car connection to go out of Sestriere was closed - we could use only few lifts and slopes in Sestriere. Reason - strong wind, but to be honest it didn't look so strong. Next day - all lifts, except one was closed, so we could ski only on 2 slopes. 3rd day - everything was closed. Remarks - no chance to go by skibus to other places, no return of skipass (even if everything is closed). So finally you have region of 320 km of slopes, but you can hardly use small parts of it (at full prce). This is of course the problem of the region, not the hotel - but there is no other reason to there. Let's not forget about the ski room - you have to pay 10 EUR per person and you get non heated locks for ski boots, so you have to ride in wet boots. Positives - people in the hotel are nice, maybe they can't help you much, but still they are nice. Overall - if you want to go for skiing in Italy, go somewhere else, not to Sestriere. I think the last investments they made, was for Turin Olympics.…
You should not ask too much from a hotel with a 3 star rating. But there are so many small details that edily could be fixed to make the experience much better. First the positives: -Almost all hotels in Sestriere have a distance to the slopes. Uappala is fairly close, but not ski in ski out as they say. But close enough Improvements: -The check in process is ancient. Manual writing with pen and paper... Takes forever since all members of the family need to be registered -The receptionist didn't know much at all and the info he did give is was wrong. His English was none exciting. - we had to find out about skilockers our self. Once we found it, it was not included in the hotel. You had to go to the Skirenting to rent keys to lockers. Once you got your key the numbers were in a total mess. So you had to spend 10 minutes to find the matching number. And of course... no informatuon at all. -The rooms are very small, but clean and beds comfortable. But the walls are so thin so you can hear everything in the rooms next door. - If you have breakfadt included you need to wear a plastic wristband.. Extremely uncomfortable, especially with skigloves. - The breakast area is enormous. And sterile as a school canteen. Very noisy. An easy move as flowers and noice insulation would make it so much nicer. The canteen personnel have no clue what service is . - The breakfast is ok and what you can expect in Italy. Goid cofee and a lot of cake and sugar. -The elevators takes forever. And of course there are no signs to the stairs. - The employees smoke in the firestairs indoors. The smoke goes in to the ventilationsystem and ends up in the rooms next to the stairs. Even when we told the reception they didn't do anything. -It is a kids hotel., so there are a lot of kids. So if you are planning a vacation without small kids... chose another hotel. Summary: A two star hotel with potential. Start with upgrade the service and information. …
Although it isn’t new it is a clean and comfortable hotel next to the lifts. 10 minutes walk to central Sestriere. Breakfast buffet was ok, this is Italy, not Sweden. Greatest coffee though. Dinner buffet was great. A lot to choose from and well prepared. We stayed in a room on the A-level. Unfortunately, all sounds from the corridor was very disturbing. Try to get another floor, is my recommendation. Entertainment team did a good job.
We booked this hotel before Christmas as we wanted a ‘relatively’ good value skiing holiday as a family. Skiing holidays are never cheap but with a hotel offering a family room and half board for just over £1k for a week and close to the slopes, it seemed good value. The positives ... close to the slopes (if you don’t mind a walk down a set of steep steps and across a road). I don’t mind carrying my kids skis, but it might put some people off. Reception staff were efficient and pleasant enough. The dinner buffet offers a lot of food. Not the best we’ve had, but plenty of choice and there was enough fresh pasta, salads and breads. Meat options were ok. Sometimes the food could be warmer and the cuts were probably cheap ones but on the whole fine after a days skiing when you want to load up and then go to bed (which is good because it didn’t feel like a place we’d want to sit and relax after dinner). Deserts were ok. Fresh fruit always available too. Free red and white wine. Staff were efficient at clearing away plates. No coffee though. Breakfast was ok. Again plenty. Not much variety but enough to load you up again for a days skiing. We made a few sandwiches for lunch and this kept us going through the day. Espresso and coffee machines were ok. Rooms were clean .... but... The negatives... No shops or ski hire less than 10 minutes walk away (unless you wanted to hire the junk from the hotel). I have my own gear so didn’t mind carrying my kids. Not everyone’s ideal situation though. Such a tired hotel. Built for the Olympics or World Cup a long time ago and hasn’t been updated since. Rooms were very tired. Need updating. New carpets and showers a must. Shower wouldn’t drain properly. Rooms a bit cramped. Wi-fi didn’t work. Awful smelly boot room that you have to rent a ski rack space and locker. Nowhere to dry clothes or boots. Unpleasant walk from the ski room to outside through a tunnel used for smoking. Not a pleasant area. Couldn’t wait to get out of there. Terrible bar. No beer on tap (there were taps!) Only poor brand bottles of beer (not even Italian ones?!) We went next door to the Vilagio Olympico after the first day. Free Wi-fi and a much nicer ambience. The bar staff (apart from one nice man we’re sour faced and unhelpful) at the Valtur. Toilets... I only found one. I’m not a ‘squatter’ ... enough said. The lifts ... small and slow. Not good enough to service an 8 floor building. This hotel could be good with some serious investment. But for essentially a hostel with loads of food to eat and sleep when skiing with my young kids, it ticked the box... just.... only just though. Would I go back? To Sestriere yes. It’s the second time I’ve been in 14 years. To this hotel ... no. Not until they invest into its modernisation. I’ve actually stayed in campsites in Europe with better facilities and better service. It was a good job that it was a ‘relatively cheap’ booking. One final point. We were charged full lift pass prices for our children as they were older than 7. At 8&9 and for two adults, this cost over 750 Euro for the week! Apparently a recent pricing change. Possible due to Italy’s financial situation. It was a good job there was a lot of snow and the pistes were quiet. Though not all lifts were open. …
Though the staff was friendly and helpful the hotel is below standard even for a ski resort. The rooms were not renovated in many years, the food was basic and the ski equipment was not well maintained. And we were not a part of a group this was also quite expensive on top of it. Will not recommend.
