“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We have stayed at Villa Alpina 4-5 times in the past 10-15 years, and have loved it every time. It is in a perfect location, just a few minutes walk from the pedestrian zone in beautiful Cortina, and La Cooperative (a must for any shopping need or desire). Elio and Renata put on the best breakfast with warm crossiants, meat, cheese, breads, and pastries, fresh fruits, and delicious coffee. The breakfast room is sunny and welcoming, as are the hosts. This is a perfect base for hikes and climbs and via ferrata routes in the nearby Dolomites. The covered patio at Villa Alpina is surrounded by gorgeous flowers and is a perfect place to picnic with wine, cheese, meats, fruits, and breads from nearby stores. The rooms are large, clean, and have the fluffiest comforters ever. We love staying here, and no you will, too. Elio is a great host, is helpful, efficient, and friendly.

Room Tip: Any room is great.

The owner of the hotel is great; she is an extremely welcoming host. She serves the breakfast herself and takes care of each and every guest. However, I cannot say the same for the personnel. We arrived a little bit late (because of the snowy road) and the guy in the reception clearly remarked his annoyance when we first arrived.

If you like your room warm, this hotel may not be the best option for you for visits in May. Since it is not the highest season, heaters are shut down at 00:00 (although we noted that we need our room warm in our reservation), and the room gets really cold. Internet connection is not good, there are a few modems; however the connection goes off regularly. It does not work in the breakfast saloon.

The room was very clean and cosy, extremely comfortable and big, well heated with lots of hot water in the shower, and we really appreciated the kind hospitality of the hotel owners and staff. Breakfast was a lovely spread. Excellent location next to a ski rental shop and a restaurant (both of which are incidentally wonderful too), also 2mins from the ski bus stop so that's a huge plus. I loved Cortina and will highly recommend this villa.

We stayed at Villa Alpina five days in the beginning of February. We had a reservation for a three bed room and we got a large and clean room with a spacious bathroom. But what really made our stay was the hospitality of the owners. They where very helpful and friendly in a very natural way. And I should not forget to mention the breakfast which was excellent. Including lot of home-made bakings. Our four years old daughter really loved the place so I can also recommend this place for families. The ski-bus stops 50 meters from the hotels and we got good service when we rented skies from the store next door from the hotel. The main square in Cortina is only a 5 minutes walk away from the hotel and there is good restaurants just next to the hotel. I would really like to return to Villa Alpina.

My sister and I booked 10 days in January 2014 at the Villa Alpina on line having never been to Cortina before. We enjoyed a very warm welcome from Renata and Elio and were given a very spacious room on the third floor with a wonderful view of the Dolomites. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel is located very close to the centre of town with many choices of restaurants within walking distance. The ski hire and ski bus are next door and across the road - this was an added bonus for us. We loved Renata's breakfast, a large choice of meats, cheese, fruit, croissants and cereals finishing off with Renata's beautiful home baking and lovely coffee and tea.. This private hotel has a wonderful warm friendly feeling about it. Renata and Elio were most helpful especially with trays of hot lemon tea when my sister suffered a sore throat. I would not hesitate to recommend the Villa Alpina to all my friends and will definitely stay here when we are in Cortina again.

We had a reservation for a Junior Suite with Balcony (3 beds) Non-Refundable for 2 nights at EUR 270.The owner took us at the 3rd floor to a regular room, without balcony and with only 2 beds. The ceiling was low over the bed and in order to get in the bathroom one had to step down 2 steps-a real danger for old people at night. We pointed out to the owner that this is not a suite with balcony and he answered that rooms at the 3rd floor don't have a balcony, that this is a suite, but did not answer about the 3rd bed. (there was no room for an extra bed). After a 400 Km drive and at 8 PM we had to accept the room and told the owner that we will discuss the price when we leave.

The hotel is very noisy -day and night- being located on a main street.
When we settled the bill. we got only a 20 EUR discont while te difference between a double room and a suite is 70 EUR fo 2 nights.

We feel cheated and we strongly advise to avoid this hotel. A complain was lodged with the Cortina Tourist Office.

Gentile ospite, ci dispiace per il disguido durante il suo soggiorno. Ma come potrà confermare, le avevamo proposto di cambiare stanza il giorno successivo, per averne una con il balcone, ma LEI, NON ha accettato. Lei aveva prenotato una stanza con letto matrimoniale, e le abbiamo dato una bella stanza J.S con letto matrimoniale + divano letto anche se eravate in 2. per quanto riguarda il prezzo, lei ha preso una tariffa su booking.com scontata rispetto al nostro listino ufficiale, e me lo consenta, Ottimo come rapporto qualità/prezzo. Come tutti i nostri clienti ( vedi recensioni) trovano sempre alla Villa Alpina. Ci fanno piacere le critiche, in quanto ci hanno sempre aiutato a migliorarci e a stimolarci a fare di più... ma se un cliente ci va giù pesante e fa di tutto pur di screditare il mio operato mi sento personalmente offeso !! grazie a tutti coloro che ci hanno rinnovato la fiducia!! lavoreremo per dare sempre il meglio !!!

My husband and I stayed at the Villa Alpina for 3 nights in July. The hotel is located just outside the cordoned-off area of the town, an easy walk to shops and restaurants. We loved that it is privately owned and managed and not impersonal like the larger hotels can be. There was a lot of variety offered for their breakfasts, the bed was comfortable, and host was welcoming and hospitable. We would definitely stay there again. Cortina is a wonderful town and we enjoyed hiking and via ferrata in the area.

My only caution would be about the shower. It was fine for us, as we are not large people. However, we joked that if you dropped the soap you'd have to step outside the shower to be able to bend over and retrieve it.
