“Great hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2009

Enjoyed our stay at the Menardi. We booked at room overlooking the garden which and it was very quiet away from the road. Room was comfortable and clean. Best feature was the guy on the front desk who was extremely helpful and even planned our walks for us.

This is an awesome hotel! Really old, but has been updated and is super clean and comfortable. The staff are incredibly helpful. I think its a family owned business. Its on a main road that can be kind of noisy at night and in the morning. Hotel Menardi is about a 15 minute walk from the center of town (they hotel staff can tell you about the walking trail, very very lovely!). Every room has an incredible view of the Dolomites and the staff are very very helpful. We absolutely loved our stay and didn't want to leave!

We enjoyed our 2 days at the Menardi. The staff was a big help in recommending local scenic and hiking attractions. The dining room was lovely, with a very good breakfast and gourmet dinner for a reasonable fixed price. Although it is on the outskirts , there is a pleasant walking path into town. The two downsides were that there was no elevator, so we walked up two flights of stairs, and the room furnishings were relatively basic and local.

  • Liked — Charm, good food and helpful attitude

We stayed at the Hotel Menardi in early June 2007, during Cortina d'Ampezzo's off-season. For 110 Euro a night, my husband and I enjoyed a lovely room, hearty breakfasts, great cocktails at the bar, and the wisdom of the Menardi brothers, who all went to great lengths to help us plan our cycling adventures. (If you are a cyclist - road or mountain - Cortina has some of the best riding in all of Italy.) We also enjoyed walking to downtown on the greenway. While we were not very impressed with the dinners we had in town, we found the hotel restaurant to have good food at very reasonable prices. All in all, we would highly recommend the Hotel Menardi!

We stayed during summertime 2006 and enjoyed our stay immensely. The rooms are very clean. The hotel restaurant only offers a set menu, but it was excellent - we ate there twice. The walking path out back and the views are incredible. Within walking distance of 'The Arrow In The Sky' - gondola ride to top of La Tofana (11,000ft).

Family owned and operated, very friendly. Internet access, but only in lobby area - they provide a PC, but you can also use your own.

Along main thoroughfare at end of town leading to Austrian border, so road traffic is constant.

Frequent public bus service and staff has schedules for guests.

Staff very helpful correcting our booking as our room was too small for 4 and even gave us a discount on the 2nd room.

Would highly recommend and return again.

  • Liked — Scenic Views, excellent service
  • Disliked — Location far from downtown Cortina

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2007

We stayed at Menardi for 4 nights for a ski holiday. I based my decision on trip advisor reviews, which in general are correct - But some very misleading points which were a huge disappointment. For example;

I wanted a wellness center, which a previous reviewer states was nice. (and is shown on the hotel website.) We were very surprised to arrive at the front desk, next to the sign advertising the spa, (dressed ready to go...) and were told 1) you have to put on your coat / street clothes, as the wellness center is in the building next door. 2) You have to pay €20 per person to enter... for a sauna and jacuzzi and towel 3) it is totally nude (mixed).... which it itself is ok but what if you just want to relax in a lounge chair? must you do it in a towel? and 4) oh, it is not open until 15.00. My first thought was for €40 a couple, I could have probably gone to Miramonte or Cristallo spa and gotten more. None-the-less, there was no offer for us to look at it and decide, and I wasn't interested in getting redressed. Big Minus for me!

Secondly, I followed the tripadvisor advise and booked a room in the back - which was quiet, however the room was pretty terrible. It was very small for 4 nights, just enough room to walk around the bed. The bathroom I hated. It was in bad need of touch up (cracked tiles, banged up door, chipped paint everywhere.) It was so narrow when on the toliet your nose practically touched the wall. And the tub only contained a hand held fixture that did not mount to the wall. Therefore you were forced to shower one handed, or in shifts. Hard to wash long hair.

Last point, my husband thought the shuttle out front was part of the hotel to take you downtown,(as said on website) but it was a public bus which only comes once an hour.

On the plus side: Aperitivo in the bar with fireplace simple and nice. The walk way into town behind the hotel a delightful walk. Dinner recommendations (we ate out always) were wonderful. Very clean - in fact spotless. The employees were helpful.

In the end, for 1 or 2 nights it would have been ok. I had different expectations about the spa and the room. For €200 a night, I would have expected more, even in upscale Cortina.

We stayed at Hotel Menardi for the second week of our honeymoon and had a great time. The service is impecable (Marco the bartender is the best!). The rooms were simple but immaculate. Breakfast was very good. The location is a bit out of town but we liked that because it was a bit quieter and, in the summer, the walk to town isn't bad at all.
