Lovely People, Nice little hotel!
I had a weeks stay here at short notice over Christmas. The team here are incredibly helpful and can provide useful information on the local area and activities. The standards of cleanliness are very good, I have stayed in 4 star hotels that did not maintain such levels. I believe based on the modernisation downstairs that this could turn into a hidden gem with suffice support.

Lovely hotel in good location with good access
Absolutely lovely hotel with wonderful manager who was very helpful and kindly helped me by speaking English. Hotel located right next to old town (less than five minute walk). Bus stop to take bus to gondolas to go up to ski fields was a three minute walk from the hotel. Hotel gave a free bus pass, too, for the entire time of my stay. Breakfast was simple but good. Hotel room very clean, quiet, comfortable with toiletries refreshed every day. Magnificent view from my room. Just a note, though, for those accessing the hotel from the train station, you will need to catch the bus to Champ de Mars carpark next to old town or catch a taxi. Its about 1.5km from the train station and up a steep hill as its next to the old town. It cost me 10 euro for a taxi and 2 euro extra for help with luggage. Book the taxi the night before when you leave as I made the mistake of leaving it until the morning of departure. The lovely manager managed to sort my taxi problem, for which I am very grateful, but it could have ended with me missing my train. Book the night before! Overall a fabulous place to stay. Bring your ice-grips for your shoes if you venture into the old town and up the forts. Very slippery!

Very close to the Fortress!
This was a stop en route to Turin. It was easy to find and a close walk (2 minute) to the fortress at Briancon. It had a great wifi connection AND television with stations in English! The hotel was OK for the price and it had a speculative view and an accommodating host. However we could hear the water pipes, hair dryer and anyone walking or talking around us.
