The Chalet Stella Alpina is very well situated. The landscape is amazing and you can start a lot of different hikes nearby, the lago ritom for example. At the chalet you can enjoy a spa after a long hike, which is just very relaxing. The staff is really nice and the food excellent (you have to try the risotto). We... More

We spend an unforgettable stay in Ronco for Valentine's. The area is breathtaking and it's a great spot to disconnect. However I have to say that they gave us (to my fiancé and I) a kids room, connected to a junior suite, so we didn't have our own bathroom. We had to use the one in the aisle. We would've... More

Hello, thanks for your good reviews. As for your last dinner, I'm not convinced that you have understood what she has written. If you ordered "braised with polenta" and the dish'consists of 3 balls of our local polenta with 5 slices of beef. Meat "fillet beef " however, is always served in portions 230/250 grams. Just one slice! The filet... More

The hotel is very nice but it it not clear which room you get by which price - our room was superior and was tiny, even if had great views to the mountains. Dinner is good quality but a bit overpriced. People is nice, even if you would expect even more interaction and recommendations from the team.

We stayed a week in this hotel for ski touring. The location is beautiful. The accommodation is not suitable for athletes. No place to dry garments, no place to put the shoes. The owners have also never showed where we could put things. We paid the normal price for half board. Price/quality is very expensive. The breakfast was good. Dinner... More

We have done everything possible to accommodate you. Have you had special prices , you deleted rooms without informing us before your arrival , you wanted single rooms but you had reserved the double. You had breakfast in the morning at dawn every day (at 6:00am), you left your clothes - shoes and skis everywhere throughout the hotel . Have... More

Quick stop in this hidden gem. This valley is most underestimated and underexploited -just used as a crossing pass for Summertime trips to Valais. The restaurant is superb and priced accordingly -I recommend a lunch to passers-by. The hotel displays a remarkable effort to renovate keeping the antique feeling of a Swiss chalet. This is to be praised. You do... More

Location is beautiful. Rooms are small and simpel. There are no closets to store anything. There is no real skiroom or posibilty to dry skiboots. We took half board but the food is really simple. They offer vegetarian food options but even then they give few vegetables and mostly pasta's and cheese. Also at breakfast no vegetables mostly very sweet... More

We could'nt enjoy our stay in the hotel. The room was very cold and loud. The breakfast was spartan not suitable for a three star hotel. The italian speaking people got a really good service, but we did'nt even get hot coffee. In every youth hostel you get a better breakfast and a more equal service. The price-perfomance ratio of...

We very much enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Rooms a bit small but acceptable. Just one comment. Previous posts have raved about the risotto with blueberries and mushrooms. A word of caution - this dish looks unappetising and will not be to everyone's taste. For my wife it was the wrong choice. This does not reflect on the restaurant... More

Three friends stayed here for two nights in July. We loved the hotel and the view from our room was amazing. When we got out of our car we heard the cow bells and were surrounded by mountains. The staff were very friendly. We really enjoyed the breakfast and felt there was great variety. The cheese fondue was amazing! The... More

Great little find nestled high in the Swiss Alps - food was excellent and the staff wonderful. We were surprised at first when we were asked if we had a reservation - walked in around 7:30 pm the place was packed for dinner -
