This review covers the restaurant, bar and other premises because due to some room arrangement done by other people, some of us slept elsewhere, while was at Franceschi for board.
The hotel is a typical family-run business, with the owner that actually highly cares about his guests.
From the reception to the bar and restaurant, smiling staff welcomed us and was always available for any request.
The cuisine features an excellent wide proposal, with all the typical italian foods. Usually three or four choices are available both for "primi piatti" and "secondi piatti". A soup or crème is always on menu, as well as a vegetarian choice.
A wide, tasty buffet of appetizers, salads, and unique preparations is presented every day.
Desserts also have many possible choices.
Some extra-menu options were available if the menu still did not match our tastes.
One night the owners offered an aperitif within a "gala night" accompanied by live music and followed by a dinner with the tastes of the local cuisine. Pasta is often home made and this is something almost unique.
A remarkable mention goes to the dining room and bar staff. Our waitresses were just perfect, from the maître de salle to her assistants.
Hint: if available, ask to have dinner in the "saletta", which is a very elegant and intimate dining room, with just a few places. Entirely wood-covered, the "saletta" featuring the style of the tyrolean houses, it is the perfect choice to have an elegant, or romantic night with friends.
The only possible improvement we can suggest is about the internet connection. Although surely it is better to enjoy Cortina for the natural environment and for skiing rather than do business, a reliable wideband connection is now a must everywhere.
Check this hotel. Hardly you will find a better value for your bucks.
