We paid extra for a larger junior suite, but this was located at the front of the hotel which overlooks, and is very close to, a busy noisy road. A choice between not being able to sleep because of the stuffy room, or the noise... The hotel was full so we couldn't be moved. Beds come with a single blanket and sheet and the most uncomfortable pillow I have ever encountered. These were rapidly supplemented with a single pillow each which was only a very slight improvement. Breakfast is basic continental and OK but the coffee is awful. Our room was exceptionally clean and the reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. While the hotel is located a short walk from the centre of town, the best experience of Cortina requires a car (the ski areas are distinct and some are best reached by car) or taxi rides to restaurants - the best of which are some way outside the centre. Hotel location is not the advantage you would think, particularly when the noise factor is taken into consideration.
