“Spacious, well-appointed apartments in a great location in Cortina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Very clean, spacious and well-appointed apartments. There was a bit of a mix-up when we arrived - I thought I had booked a two-bedroom apartment but was shown a one-bedroom apartment with a sofa bed. (In Italian, a "bilocale" has one bedroom and a "trilocale" has two bedrooms.) Luckily there was a two-bedroom apartment available and due to a last-minute offer was on at the same price I had paid for the one-bedroom. The receptionist had to call for permission to upgrade us and this was granted. What a lovely suite of rooms. Master bedroom with very comfortable double bed and good-quality linens and a safe in the wardrobe, separate small bedroom with lovely wooden bunk beds for the children, living/dining/kitchen area with fridge, sink, two-ring electric hob, coffee maker, small dishwasher and Villeroy & Boch tableware. Very nice bathroom with shower over the bath, fluffy towels and bathrobes and slippers. Lots of storage space in the apartment too. Long balcony with view of the sister hotel Grand Hotel Savoia across the road and the moutains behind, and a table and chairs for two. We were not bothered by street noise but if this is a concern rooms on the back are probably quieter. Heavy curtains blocked the light in the bedrooms, which is great for getting children to sleep and ensuring they don't wake up too early!

Wifi is free and very straightforward to log on. Parking is a bit steep at an extra 20 euros a day. Use of the pool and spa facilities in the sister hotel is free and you can get to the spa through the garage so you don't have to go outside. The pool is not large but still pleasant and the jacuzzi is great, very warm and very bubbly! Good sauna and steam rooms too and it is open until 9pm which was good. Surprisingly the tea and coffee is charged extra, this is a bit confusing as in the hotel information sheet the prices are mentioned for the drinks in the minibar and the "waffles" - it turns out these "waffles" are not biscuits but the packets of tea and coffee for the coffee machine!

There is a breakfast room in the hotel as well as a pasticceria a couple of doors up from the hotel and a supermarket five minutes walk away, both are even open on Sunday mornings. Cortina is a pretty town with lovely walks and cable-car trips in the area and this hotel is in a great location for walks in and around the town as well as for easy arrival and departure by car. We would recommend it for families, couples and groups of friends.

We (two adults, two 13 yr olds) travelled to Cortina for the last few days of the Ski season and chose Savoia Palace Apartments for it's proximity to the centre of town (you are one small block away) and it's access to the spa at it's sister property The Grand Hotel Savoia. We were made very welcome by the friendly and helpful check in Manager.
We had a two bedroom apartment which was scrupulously clean and comfortable with lots of towels and nice toiletries which we were not expecting. There is a supermarket a short walk away and we used this for breakfast materials and then ate lunch and dinner out.
I took a star off my rating because there is no kettle or microwave and it took me two days to work out the coffee frother on the espresso machine for which they charge you extra when you use the little coffee pots they so temptingly leave out.
The Spa is lovely and each time you go they give you a fresh towel, robe and slippers. The pool is a nice temperature and there is a thermal spa area with 4 different hot rooms and the obligatory mountains of shaved ice to rub over yourself (some people like that sort of thing). Under 16's are only allowed in the pool and don't bother trying to up trick the lady at the desk - she's sharp!

Great apartment hotel. We were five persons and rented two apartments. The apartments were nice with a small kitchen in the living room, nice bath and a bedroom, the rooms were clean. The staff at the hotel was very helpful. Grand savoia witch is the sister hotel next door is sharing a parking garage and SPA with this hotel. It is just to take the elevator to -1 and enter the garage or SPA. I would definately use this hotel again.

Stayed with my husband and another couple in early January. We opted for a one bedroom flat each, unsure of the size of the flats we thought it would be the best choice. It turns out that one bedroom flats are indeed very spacious and can easily accommodate a family with children.

We also decided to hire a car and drive from Venice airport to the resort, as we did not find the buses timetable particularly flexible and stopped a little far, if only 300/400m from Cortina palace.

The personnel offered us the option of underground parking, or outside parking in the spa car park. The latter is free, but it's first come first serve so during peak times it may be difficult to find a spot. In early January past the festive season, we did not have an issue with finding a parking space free of charge.

The personnel at the Savoia was very, very helpful from the moment we set foot in the property, and way before also with any questions I had during the reservation process.
The flats were new and modern, in pristine conditions and with all comforts you can expect:
- practical kitchenette with hobs, fridge, coffee machine, pots and pans, dishes and cutlery
- flat TV, sofa bed with parquet everywhere other than in the bathroom
- bathrooms are super clean, all in marble with fantastic showers
They also offer room service (including fresh pizza delivered by a local, very popular restaurant nearby).

Location - very practical if you are a keen skier but also want to be in the town centre.
The ski shuttle stops literally opposite the Savoia, and of course there are changing rooms on-site so you literally walk out of the premises fully geared up and grab the shuttle to the slopes.
The shuttle is free for all ski pass holders. All ski shuttles stop opposite the Savoia (to Pocol, Faloria, Tofana, Socrapes) so we never got lost.

Cleanliness - in a class of its own... the structure has been refurbished very recently, and it's kept immaculate. Rooms are carefully done daily and the housekeeping is very discrete (we never got woken up by them).

Spa - all guests of the Savoia have free access to the Spa shared with the Savoia Hotel. We found the spa really nice after a long day skiing. The personnel was also very polite and attentive.

Value - at the price we paid, this was very good value for money, can't complain. It's an upmarket accommodation so you pay for what you get, but what you get is very good.

We'll go back for sure!

Room Tip: If you are a family with 1 or 2 children a one bedroom flat is more than adequate. For couples, I wo...

Great choice for a family ski trip. Generally excellent facilities, especially use of the neighbouring spa. Pretty centrally located (5 mins from town centre) and close to supermarket for self catering. Ski bus stops right outside the door to the hotel ski lockers. Internet is a bit patchy, kitchen only has 2 electric hobs (no oven or grill) and the satellite TV has no English speaking channels. Laura on reception is really friendly and helpful and Roberto is not, in a splendidly Fawlty Towers-esque way. Cortina is very chic and very Italian with a stunning beautiful mountain backdrop. The ski lifts are ageing and quaint but not yet senile and if you're going late in the ski season, check that all the lifts will be open when you go, as many close early.

Stayed long weekend 3 nights with wife.
Rooms: we took two bedroom apartment (all smaller rooms had been booked) - easily can accommodate a family of 5 people. Everything what you need especially for long stay (kitchen etc). Good maintenance.The only thing I did not like much was the smell of towels - seems like treated with some smelly chemistry.
Reception and service: very friendly and helpful 2 girls - one can ask help with everything - from detailed description of area and activities to recommendation and booking in restaurant. Also Angelo seems to be the guy who can solve everything. Cleaning efficient and well done.
Location: great - 10 mins walks to ski location, 3 mins walk to the shops.
Bus stop: right in from of the hotel. By bus can get to all activity centers.
Breakfast: we took 20EURO/breakfast over the street in Grand Savoia. In 20EURO only buffet, omlet or sausages paid on top. Great fresh orange jiuce of red color. Buffet is nothing special, service is good.
Pool etc. Across the street in Grand Savoia pool, sauna, etc - free of charge, very decent.
Internet: WiFi passwords are distributed free of charge but WiFi does not work in rooms. Only at reception area there is a stable signal. Should be done something.
Guests: mostly families, many kids. Perception was that mostly Italian guests which is imho good as locals usually make more informed choice.
Price is tough, with a bit smaller charge would be the top choice for me.

We booked Savoia Palace for a family ski trip (2 adults, 2 kids) with some work related obligations on my side (requiring internet access at the hotel). Having heard (from a friend who stayed there years ago) that the place was sister to Grand Savoia Hotel (just opposite the road) of which we could use their spa and the swimming pool we were happy with the deal. However most of time the Wifi and the cable connection was cut off, slow etc which made me get a USB internet connection to my laptop from the local 3 Store. Thanks to an obligatory visit to the Grand Savoia Hotels in the middle of the night for WiFi access I also learned that both hotels weren't part of the same hotel group anymore (this has changed 5-6 years ago). That explained why there was a separate (back) entrance to the spa and the swimming pool for Savoia Palace guests. Ended up not using the spa and swimming pool.

Staff were friendly and efficient though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an easy to open sofa bed. We got help from our friends each night for the extra...
