Hostellerie du Cheval Blanc

Reviewed 18 June 2010

Not easy to find - it might be a big building, but the signage isn't obvious. Smart and modern interior. Large, smart and clean room, although it smelt (and felt) damp. Two large dogs (belonging to owner) wandering around, including in dining room at breakfast. Despite the website advertising two restaurants, only one was open in the evening where the service was poor, the menu limited and the food only mediocre. The breakfast was very poor indeed. The receptionist had to get help to check us out in the morning - she didn't seem to know how to do it! Very cold atmosphere, nothing warm or friendly about it. I most definitely would not return.

Stayed: June 2010, travelled as a couple

I paid €70 b and b which was OK, and there is nothing massively wrong with the hotel, just a bunch of niggles that don't add up to its four star rating. For instance the satellite TV in the room didn't work, even after it was 'fixed'. They advertise that they will pick you up from the railway station - they wouldn't (cab fare was €7 for 1.3K). At dinner the waiter served me my main course before I'd had my antipasto and before he brought the ordered drinks to the table! Was this Italy? I sent the main back of course, but I was very surprised. At breakfast, there was no bread when I arrived just after 8. Just niggles, but they shouldn't happen in a hotel that claims four stars.

If you like cold water on swimingpool or during shower, instant coffee (in Italy!?!) and exactly the same for breakfast every morning - it is your best choice. (No) Access to internet - of course you pay for the access, but transfer is extremely slow (sending 2Mb e-mail takes 40 minutes).

Railroad is just behind the hotel but trains are only few (or no trains at all) during the night. Garage is free. Breakfast is nothing special but ok

This hotel is very noisy due to heavy traffic. The hotel is situated on a crossroad which is busy with traffic coming out of Aosta and throught traffic from St Bernards Pass.

It is also situated next to a buiding site which will be a petrol/ service station when completed. Building work starts at 7am.

Hotel bedrooms are very hot due to the air conditioning not working. Shower in bath is of a poor standard and we also experienced running water in the toilet continuously.

The restaurant opens in the evening from 7.30- 9.00pm and the food is very poor. There appears to be no other restaurants in the vicinity.

The owners of the hotel has two large dogs which wander around the reception area, which doesn't give a very good impression! Would not recommend this hotel.

Hostellerie, Front Office Manager at Hostellerie du Cheval Blanc, responded to this reviewResponded 11 January 2008

We regret that most people mind that an hotel in city center must be out of any road connection, is quite impossible.

There is only 1 petrol station that is most helpfull for our clients that have to make fuel in car or have some trouble with.

We have 2 dog is right but very quite otherwise could not stay in our office, and some times as People have to do their own toilettes affaires.
