The Christiania has several properties located in and around Vail village. This review is based on the main Christiania Lodge. $8 breakfast is basic and a excellent value. Happy hour everyday is fun. Stay here to be in the village at a bargain price. Walk to the lift is less than 5 minutes

Great family place to stay. Has VERY reasonably priced breakfast, a heated swimming pool and a bar in the afternoon/evening. Rooms are nice and the location to the village and lifts can't be beat. Not a TRUE ski in/ski out, but about as close as you can get. Also within easy walking distance of ski school. The only real negative,... More

Everything about the Christiania was made to order. The location is perfect - right in the heart of the village and at the same time - SKI IN - SKI OUT. Isn't that what every skier wants? The staff is clearly happy to work there. It feels like a large, cozy, charming, delicious bed & breakfast. The breakfast includes everything... More

The Christiania is a family run hotel in the heart of Vail offering true ski in & out. Location cannot be beat by any other hotel in the area and it was brilliant for getting our daughter out on to the slopes every morning. The hotel itself is lovely, styled as a chalet located in the Alps. There is an... More

We have stayed at the Christiania on several occasions and on our recent visit found they had upgraded their breakfast significantly. They had omelets and eggs to order, waffles and white linen table service all for $8. The two room suites on the first floor are a cozy fit for a small family, and a great value for the location....

I have been a regular visitor (winter & summer) for the last 35yrs and have stayed at numerous locations thru out the valley. Christiania feels like home. It all starts with the warm greeting from Gabriela at the front desk and the at-the-ready bellmen and ski valet. The rooms and decor represent the spirit of the Austrian Alps that Vail... More

We loved this place for a ski vacation. 40 paces from Gondola 1 and you can literally ski to the back door. It is 30 paces from the pedestrian walk of village. The location was PERFECT. On the inside, it is old but well kept. Our room's bath was updated fairly recently and very adequate. The room was good sized... More

My sincerest gratitude to Debbie and Gabriela at the Christiania Lodge for making our week in Vail AWESOME! The room that we had had the most picture postcard view of Vail Mountain. It was very quiet, warm and every detail down to the plush down pillows and Egyptian cotton covers on the bed were perfect. The pool was super nice... More

Steps away from the gondola and the center of town. Simple lodge with comfy bed and room. Great breakfast and staff. Heated hot tub/pool was delicious. Ski room with heated boot dryers. Who could ask for anything more?

Our third stay at the Christiania for the kids ski camp was, again, very good. Rooms are clean, cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was complete with the addition of Waffles this year. The staff was very accommodating. Christiania is a great little ski lodge in the Vail village area. Everything is with in walking distance.
