We stayed for one night. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The rooms were spic and span. But the best part was that I accidentally left my wallet in the hotel room (we were touring 5 different countries and I had no idea where I had left my wallet). Hotel Centrale staff called our contact in USA and told them about the missing wallet. They were extremely helpful and mailed the wallet to us in US...with my credit cards, ATM cards and cash intact.
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!

room spotless as was the bathroom,its self catering by the way.
The hotel is not in the main town of Sondrio but outside and up the mountains but is a lovely hotel with a superb restaurant and well worth staying - the evening meal was fantastic in a lovely setting outside. Breakfast was quite basic but fine.
