Our stay was ok, but we expected much more after reading all the rave reviews on TripAdvisor. In hind sight we would have chosen to stay somewhere else. Delonne and Courmayeur are awesome resort towns which would have had several other options. Delonne was especially nice and a little more quiet. To be fair, maybe we got a lot for the price we paid (170 euros) compared to other places.
The hotel is located up the hill from the TMB trail and was a little difficult for us to find, the room felt a little worn, and the shower was mounted in a way that made bathing a little difficult.
The dinner was actually pretty good though. I just wish there would have been a little more of it.
Far and away the best part of our stay was the service of one of the hosts. She spoke excellent English and was very attentive to our needs as TMB trekkers. Most of the guests were Italian and we're American. She went out of her way to make sure we understood the menu at dinner and had breakfast ready for us early before we left the next morning. And she was so friendly and fun to visit with. Because of our experience with her we wish we could rate this place a little higher.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our home, desired and built by our grandparents Silvio and Cipriana, first opens its doors at the foot of Mont Blanc in the summer of 1953. Located in the once named Tsereley area, it is located in the quieter part of Courmayeur center, close to the Grand Ru trail, a great starting point for a light walk around the village. For the ski lovers, a 9-minute walk through the elegant windows of the central via Roma will take you to the main cable car. Our rooms, as well as the summer restaurant, bar, reading room, private parking and garden will welcome you with the simplicity that a mountain house can offer for a carefree holiday. ... more less
