"Fablous biking hotel location - more like 5 star"
One of the best hotels I've stayed in!
Having visited Livigno skiing in the winter, we (a couple) wanted to try mountain biking in the summer but wanted a holiday that was more than simply a biking holiday and Lac Salin did not disappoint.
The rooms were incredibly spacious and comfortable with Sky tv with English channels, free wifi and a well stocked mini bar.
The breakfast options were so extensive you felt it utterly necessary to have a 3 course breakfast every day. Freshly made pastries and cakes, freshly squeezed juices, omelette, cheeses, cereals, fruits, yogurts.... I could go on, the choice was vast and of the highest quality.
The bar was well stocked with great views of the mountains and a great selection of whiskys and wine.
The spa was an actual spa, the kind you pay for to go for a day not the usual kind you find at hotels which claim to have a 'spa' only to find a tiny pool and sauna. You were provided with gowns in your room for use in the spa.
We used the services of the biking tours which were very reasonably priced and provided a great day out.
Livigno itself is a fabulous town with great shops, bars and plenty to do for those not wanting to be so active. As a duty free location the prices are very good both in the shops and in the bars and restaurants. Would recommend drinks at Bivio in the centre and food at Bellavista in the San Rocco area. For me the best pizzas are at La Locanda at the bottom end of town.
The staff was very kind and helpfull with information about our departure. The location is not ideal since there is a five minuetes drive to the town center. The hotel's restaurant serves a reach breakfast and the dinner was wonderful.
The spa area is nice but the pool is too small.
Overall we had a good experience.

Hotel Astra is a small but quaint hotel nestled at the very heart of the Italian Alps, in the breathtakingly beautiful town of Livigno. We had to travel an extremely long way to get there but it was very much worth the effort. Upon our arrival, my fiancee and I were given a warm welcome by the owner and were provided with a complimentary night cap before been shown to our room. The room contained everything we required for a comfortable and relaxing stay including a whirlpool bathtub, a tempur mattress and a balcony with a magnificent view. The next morning after breakfast (which was lovely), the concierge Marco gave us some invaluable advice about where to go for skiing lessons, helped us to obtain our ski passes and informed us where to go to hire out the necessary equipment. We spent the first day organising all of this and doing a bit of sight seeing. Livigno is a great town for shopping as it is a tax free area which means you can buy goods at a substantially lower price than normal. On the second day we went for our skiing lesson first thing in the morning on a slope located directly at the back of our hotel which was ideal. Our instructor was fantastic and once we had learned the basics we decided to continue on our own because we felt that the best way to learn is from your own mistakes! Each day we followed the pattern of skiing in the mornings, sight seeing and shopping in the afternoons and at night enjoying the various restaurants and buzzing bars. AMAZING!

"Good location - ask for a room in the main part of the hotel"
We were put in the annex of the hotel, something we were not aware exisited when booking this trip. Some of our friends were in the main part of the hotel which seemed to have superior rooms (sky tv etc). We had requested a double bed - but it was infact two singles pushed together with a sheet over it. The matresses were at slightly different levels which meant it wasn't the most comfortable experience. I would recomment asking for a room in the main part when booking this hotel. Overall very nice, clean, helpful staff, bar/restaurant and a spa down stairs. Good loaction - very close to a bus stop and had ski hire and pass at the back of the hotel and a baby slope for learning.
