It's actually quite encouraging to see that other reviewers have come to the same conclusion as us. It gives credibility to TA's other output and allows me to endorse other reviewers of this hotel.

The minuses:
* beds are hard. Very hard. In the middle if the night, the floor is a genuine alternative!
* bedding is sheet and blanket with a solitary lumpy pillow. Sounds fussy but after a day's vigorous skiing (or golf in the summer) it doesn't seem much to ask for something soft.
* there is no food served in the evenings,
* some of the staff can appear a little off-ish

The plus points:
* great location, in the centre of pleasant town and yet just off the main street to avoiding the inevitable late night frivolities. Cable car to Plan Checroute (main ski area) is just 5 mins walk away.
* breakfast was good 'continental style' as we brits would call it. Anything cooked is extra. Coffee industrial strength if you like that kind of thing. Hot chocolate you could honeslty stand a spoon up in ...again, for those that like
* sauna / exercise / shower area very pleasant and new
* staff are genuinely pleasant and will help if asked nicely. Night manager particularly helpful with restaurant bookings.
* rooms; clean, simple, cleaned daily. Nothing fancy.

Overall, this is an inexpensive 3 -star hotel ....if you want plush with the trimmings you are in the wrong place! If you want a good base to ski from, spend time with friends and crash out before doing it all again, the Hotel Centrale is perfectly adequate.

TIP: bring a spare pillow!

Note to hotel: The only thing that stops your hotel being a very is the beds. Go on, you know it makes sense! You could even charge a euro or two a night for a duvet...!

Room Tip: There are a number of combinations available. A few rooms share a bathroom. Rm 201 (1st floor despit...

i spent only one night for a short ski weekend. Hotel is good and in the centre, so no need to use the car and hotel is offering a free park. Staff is helpful. Breakfast is good to get ready for your skli day. Let me say room were not really warm so I could have probably better asked to check the heating

A large group of us stayed here for a weekend. The hotel is brilliantly positioned for restaurants etc. in the village and about 10 mins walk to the ski lift. The staff can be a tad unfriendly but they do wait up for guests until the very early hours so they are probably just tired! Rooms were pretty basic but very clean so no complaints. I've rated Very Good but it's probably only really Good... but better than avergage.

Hotel Centrale is located about 50 yards from the shops, restaurants and bars in Courmayer making it ideal for evening entertainment. That does mean a 10 minute walk to the cable car up the mountain to the pistes, but that's a good compromise for the central location. The hotel itself is well presented, very clean, the staff are friendly and attentive, and the breakfast has a wide range of choices. The bedrooms are a decent size, comfortable and clean. It also has a number of comfortable lounges on the ground floor and what looks like a brand new gym and sauna in the basement. The hotel staff go that bit further when asked, for example, if you check out on your final day and then ski that day, you can use the shower in the sauna to freshen up before leaving in the afternoon/evening. Or larger groups will be allocated a spare hotel room for showering (if available). So all in all, for a weekend ski trip where you mainly want somewhere central to sleep and have breakfast, then the Hotel Centrale is a good choice.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies with views over the mountains, others don't.

An excellent location in the center of the village and close to the ski lifts. Nice and helpful people giving the best service. To much noice by other guests made it difficult to get a full nights sleep.
