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

With a little imagination the grandeur of this hotel where Mussolini was rescued by the Germans in 1932 i think, can be recaptured. Its very near the observatory and we were fortunate to stay the night when an astronomer was in residence to show us the planets and stars billions of light years away. I even saw a shooting star...

Mussolini spent there two weeks before being collected by the German army. You can also visit the room where he lived. All recalls these events! There are books, calendars, postcards, souvenirsfor sale. Apart from these things the staff is very courteous and efficient. The buffet is very rich as well as the breakfast ( too much?)! The rooms are showing... More

A special place worth to be discovered! Coming from a longer hike we didn't feel attracted by the external aspect of the building but were pleased with the warm welcome we received. Our room was simple but cosy and we appreciated that we were provided an electrical heating. We had an agreable dinner and breakfast with spectacular view of the... More

Wonderful situation in the mountains and the building has van interesting history. Reception area and restaurant look good. However, the standard of the rooms etc show how old the building is. The price, about 80 Euros, including dinner and breakfast, is rather high, but there are few or no other hotels in this beautiful area.
