Not a four star hotel but a good place to stay to relax and feel a part of world history as you walk the halls of Mussolini and imagine being there 70 years ago. Great area to go for a trek in pristine area.

This rifugio is a budget hotel; rooms are small but have all that is required with lovely mountain views. Although the exterior looks a bit shabby inside is clean and tidy. I paid €45 for dinner bed and breakfast, so when reading some of the more negative reviews this might put it into context. Dinner was usual Italian and quite... More

Friendly run, it's the heaven place for trekkers visiting central Italy. Historical hotel where Benito Mussolini had been hold and ' rescued' by Nazis (I am tonight actually sleeping in his bed), featuring plenty of authenticm photographs, and beatiful frescoes of the 30's. FOOD can be enhanced

We spent 2 nights at this hotel/rifugio. We were told it was going to be "basic" and that is very true. From the outside it looks completely run down -- plaster falling off the outside walls. But it's actually better on the inside. The rooms are basic. Ours had 1 double bed and many wall cabinets. Each room has a... More

Rarely have i been more underwhelmed and disappointed. So badly maintained, whole place is falling to bits, they fail to clean up even the most basic of messes and rely entirely on a dubious bit of history that Mussolini was kept in the hotel some 70 years ago. Go if you have to but dont stay and dont eat....

The place is wonderful (the whole area looks and feels like the Altai in Mongolia, with wild wolves and wild horses) but, the people in charge of the hotel are even more wonderful: There are so helpful, so nice, so committed that every year I cannot help but be amazed at them... The food is outstanding and the chef is... More

Let me preface this review by saying we merely visited the Campo Imperatore to see where dictator Mussolini was imprisoned, briefly, in August/September 1943 - and then sprung by a glider-born German special forces snatch-squad. So in effect we just dropped in for lunch. The place is run down, it looks forbidding from outside, but the large restaurant with its... More

The manager, Paolo, is simply doing a fantastic job to make one feel at home and realy cares about his guests. All of the staff is very friendly. This and the unik placement is the great luxury of this place. Rooms are simple, good food.

Although the hotel is a run down wreck, it is still a must for history lovers. Gran Sasso is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world with freerunning cows and wild horses on an eery but outsandingly beautiful plateau.The 25km road up from the highway is a delight for sportive drivers. For history buffs, the Campo Imperatore is... More

I visited Hotel Campo Imperatore following a day in the mountains with some friends. It was the ideal venue to have some coffee and cakes after being caught out in some heavy rain showers on our way down. It was relaxing and very good value. On leaving, I carelessly left my hat in the reception area. The hat is particularly... More
