Hotel Astoria is lovingly run and the embodiment of friendly Italian hospitality. Just 50m from the Plan Maison cable car, the superb position means you're quickly up the mountain in the mornings and you can ski back to within 50m of the hotel at the end of the day. The Astoria's sun terrace is a great spot to relax on a sunny afternoon and on those colder January days the hotel's well-equipped bar and lounge area are just the ticket. The heart of Cervinia with its many shops, bars and restaurants lies just a couple of minutes' walk away. The comfortable bedrooms are in traditional style, some with great views towards the Matterhorn.
