Although the hotel was built some time ago, it was really nice. We stayed there in august, for one night only. The price for b&b was appropriate. Furthermore, the staff was extremely friendly and the breakfast was nice.
All in all I woukd recommend it to friends and families who want a nice place to be.

Stayed: August 2015, travelled with friends

A lovely hotel in an expansive Skiing area, with a bus on your doorstep or a short walk to the main gondola. The food was great with buffet breakfast and coffee to fuel you for a full days skiing. Buffet salad accompanied two main courses in the evening with an array of desserts available to follow, all very nice and exactly what you need after the great skiing we experienced in the Via Lattea.

Brilliant location only 10 minutes in ski boots downhill to the gondola that will wisk you to the Sansicario Ski area and onward connection to Sauze d'loux . A 4 man chair lift is opposite the gondola and this will take you up to the Slopes on the Sestriere side of the Valley.
Food is simple Italian home cooking with a staple Buffet of salad and cold vegetables and pickles as a pre starter with a hot starter to follow and then a simple main and choice of 2-3 desserts to finish including fresh fruit. Draught wine and beer are available and are modestly priced typically 4..50 euro for a large glass.
I like this hotel it offers good honest simple accommodation with everything you need for a super ski break, staff are friendly polite and efficient, rooms are although rather dated in decor and style are warm and functional with some stunning views in the annexe over the valley with the Gondola swishing its way overhead .
I would happily return .

Room Tip: Annex views from balcony are stunning

Just got back from the Biancaneve and had a great stay. It's a small friendly hotel on the outskirts of Sestriere. It's on the main road at the bottom of a slight hill which leads to the main area of Sestriere, takes about 10 mins to walk without skis but there is a regular bus which stops outside the hotel.
For ski lift accessibility, you can either store your skis at the hotel and walk about 200 metres to the main gondola access to Sauze or a chair which takes you up into the village or you can store your skis for free at a ski hire shop in the village arranged by the hotel and start your skiing from the centre of Sestriere. If you are in ski school its definitely easier to store your skis in the hire shop.
There are various types of room in the hotel, we had room 190 which was on the first floor at the front of the hotel. It had lovely views but was a bit close to the main entrance to the hotel. The room was small but immaculately cleaned and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size but the shower was on the small side. Fresh towels were available every other day.
Food in the restaurant was generally very good. Breakfast was a buffet with the usual selection of cereals, yoghurt, juices, croissants, bread, ham, cheese, cold boiled eggs and jams. There is a coffee machine. For dinner there was a salad/vegetable buffet with a good selection of dishes which were the same each day. This was followed by a choice of 2 pastas or a soup and then a choice of 3 main courses. The main courses were sometimes very good and other times not so good, but you won't go hungry. There was a choice of 2 or 3 deserts each day.
Drinks - they don't serve tap water in the restaurant you have to buy bottles. Also they do not serve wine by the carafe. You can buy either a glass of wine or a bottle. They have a good selection on the wine list starting at 13 euros. There's a good few bottles between 13 and 16 euros (more than 6). A medium beer (just less than a pint( was 4.50 euro. There's a bar next to the restaurant.
The hotel hosted a welcome drink and nibbles on the first night which was a good way to meet other guests.
The service from all the staff was excellent and they were very friendly. I would definitely return to this hotel if the package price was right.

The Via lattea is an absolutely superb area to ski, masses of pistes and fairly quiet apart from School Hols which is what you would expect but its still not too bad at that time. The Hotel Biencaneve is a superb base to ski this area, Sestriere. It is great value. Rooms comfortable and had plenty of storage, the food, especially the evening meals, are fantastic, breakfast has hot croisants, ham, eggs, cereal etc etc etc, free tea and biscuits at 4.30pm and happy hour, 3 euros a pint, till 6.30pm. Wi Fi worked fine but TV not alot of use but hey who wants to watch TV on a ski hol, there's enough rubbish on in the UK. Evening meal has a variety of superb salads to start then you choose the day before a pasta /soup course then a main course followed by a home made sweet which was always excellent. Lots of local dishes to try and the Valentines day 7 course meal was awesome this year. Its an ideal hotel for famalies, the staff are so friendly and helpful and work really hard, we will certainly be back next year. The skiing, I thought it best to take the ski bus from the front of the hotel to the start of the town, about 3 minutes then a short walk to the ski storage shop and you then ski down to the main lifts. You can walk to the ski shop but its a bit of a drag up a hill but no problem if you can be bothered which I could'ent. Once on the slopes, miles of skiing, easy access to Sanscicario and Sauze D'Oulx but Mongenevere is a bit of a faff to get to, I thought there would be easy access from Sestriere via Claviere but you have to go to Cesana vis Sanscicario so you need to go at a far lick to get there and back, although you can get buses. Whatever people say about Italian skiing, the pistes are marked OK you can easily find your way about and the reds and blacks are not too severe if you are a bit nervous about venturing off blues. Highly recomended hotel and ski area, we'll be back.
