“Nice rooms, great views, outside of town, ok restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

First off, this hotel is in a great location in the Alps if you are not interested in staying right downtown. Its on the main road leading to some neat motorcycling, bicycling routes in the Alps. Parking is just across the street, there is a restaurant downstairs, which is very convenient when you're tired and just not interested in going far. The views from the rooms facing the street are just breathtaking. Unfortunately that means a little noise from trucks, buses, and motorcycles trying to make their way uphill. There was no AC but we didn't need it. The rooms were huge by european standards. I was pleasantly surprised and happy to be able to spread out a little. The rooms seemed to be recently remodeled and well kept and VERY clean. THe beds were european firm, the water pressure good, the pillows okay. There was a small flat screen TV attached to a wall so we could swing it out to watch while we were in bed or on the small sofa. There's an elevator in this hotel (yay) which is nice after a long ride! One thing I also liked was that there is a nice path behind the hotel for walking or bicycling that will take you to town, so you don't have to go along the bustling road if you don't want to. The path has some awesome views as well as park benches to enjoy them. Breakfast was okay with a small selection of meats, cheeses, cereals, yogurts, fruits, juices, breads, hard boiled eggs, and coffee (automachine made). We tried dinner here one night but it was a little expensive and the food was just okay. I was a little disappointed in the dinner, especially since the restaurant in the hotel across the street was much cheaper, tasted better, and had a much more welcoming staff..even tho we weren't staying at that hotel! In fact, the gentleman at the front desk offered us a farewell shot of limoncello/grappa before we left! The folks at Hotel des Alpes were nice, polite, helpful, but just not as welcoming as we are used to in Italian locations. I would stay here again.

We stayed for 5 nights as part of a group of 10 people and were very happy with this hotel, The hotel is very well set up for cyclists and the owner (Mr Claudio Brollo) does all he can to make your stay enjoyable. Meals are good quality and ideal for those who are burning lots of calories each day. We will certainly return.

Greetings Bikers!!

I highly recommend a cycling vacation to Cortina with Hotel des Alpes!! Claudio and his staff have great knowledge of the area for road, mountain, and downhill cycling. Claudio also has a great passion for the spot and is eager to share great tips on routes, shops, and local knowledge. He was helpful as soon as I contacted him by email!! Food is very good too. I would recommend booking full board. Very nice and cheery staff. Everyone is happy to be there.

We paid quite an expensive price for this accommodation as it was the peak snowing season. The staff was very nice and helpful; they did excellent service. The breakfast was continental with many selection of bread, tea and coffee. Well we were quite satisfied with it. The dinner was really great, we had the traditional New Year Eve dinner in the hotel. It was an unforgetable dinner with so many dishes, excellent! We really enjoyed it. But one thing bad was the room wasn't sound-proof, we were really annoyed with the noise of other guests talking and walking passed the corridor, we even disturbed by the water sound when the next door guests having shower. That was the only downside of our stays. Overall, we had a wonderful holiday with des Alpes!

We had our wedding in Cortina and chose Hotel Des Alpes as our wedding hotel and recommended the hotel for all our guests. The whole experiance was excellent - thanks greatly to the wonderful hotel and the fabulous staff - let by Claudio and his family. They assisted us and our guests greatly from small to large details, like when there was a mix-up with the flowers, to driving my mother-in-law down to the train station to assist with tickets. The evening meals in the hotel were simply exquisite - all of the service was prompt and polite.
The hotel rooms are clean and spacious - very good value for Cortina!
The hotel is located a little away from the central part of town, it is maybe 15-20 minutes walk from the centre. The advantage is that there is ample parking.
We loved Hotel Des alpes and greatly appreciate Claudio and his team's wonderful hospitality.

  • Liked — The friendly and helpful management and staff
  • Disliked — It was overall excellent, but be aware that it is 15-20 minutes walk from the centre of town

Our ski club, 33 people, stayed at this hotel during February trip to Cortina. Rooms are good and many provide you with the amazing view of Dolomites. But with the view comes the noise as the hotel is facing busy road. It takes about 20 – 25 minutes to walk to the evening entertainment (bars, clubs) and its okay when you are not carrying your gear. To get to the ski lifts you have to take a bus that stops across the street and then switch to another bus in the town. The problem is that the bus runs only at the top of the hour and if you missed it you have to take a taxi (15 EURO). I would not recommend the hotel to the skiers.
