“A good choice in a beautiful town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2010

Stayed there 2 nights to explore the magnificent dolomites.

Overall a good experience but a bit on the expensive side.

The rate is per person not per room (in our case anyway) so that was a bit of a surprise. But that can be helpful for solo travelers.

The room was a bit outdated & the bed was small and a bit too firm for my liking but it was sufficient.

We had a wonderful view and a nice little balcony. That was the best feature of the room.

Breakfast was good and the service was excellent. The staff really made us feel welcome.

If it was less expensive I'd rate it much higher.

Stayed here 4 nights in for very late season walking in Dolomites. Great value for money and very familiar athmospere. Location, rooms, breakfast etc were all very good but what stands out is the service and helpfulness, definitely is among the best I have ever experienced at any hotel. Quiet rooms, even though centrally located, good parking just outside. If I go back, I will stay here again, only possible inhibitor would be considerably higher prices in high season.

Great central location which allows you to walk to every place in town. Decent sized rooms with more than adequate number of closets and drawers. Lots of wood in the rooms adds character and many rooms have a great view of the mountains. Barbara at the front desk was extemely helpful and so pleasant. She provided great advice on where to hike, the best restaurants and local stores. During our stay, the hotel parking lot was under repair and the temporary parking lot was a little challenging.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2008

a pretty little hotel and we had 2 connected rooms that were reasonably spacious.
The beds were very hard and the pillows insubstantial, not a good combination for a good nights sleep.
The location is fine for the cortina nightlife, but bad for the skibus to the slopes.
The staff were generally friendly but did the minimum. Lilltle help on preparing for the holiday with getting to Cortina, ski school etc.
The experience was very marred by their failure to explain their lift pass promotion that cost me 100 euros. After calling me a liar in front of my family they then refunded 40 euros.
Perhaps the comical highlight was when we left they gave my 10 year old son a shaving kit?!

Charming hotel with friendly service in the middle of the Dolomites. Rooms a bit on the small side but very comfortable with lots of rustic mountain touches.Very nice breakfast buffet. Good location in the middle of Cortina, thus excellent departure point for dailiy hikes in the Dolomites.

  • Liked — Mountain chalet style and general ambiance.
  • Disliked — Rooms (especially the bathroom) a bit on the small side.

We stayed 1 night at the Ambra Hotel and enjoyed it very much. We had a nice room, though small, it was well appointed and very clean and comfortable with a small balcony as well. The breakfast (which is included in the room rate) was excellent - our favorite selection of breads, cheeses, fruits, etc in all of Italy (so far). The staff was very nice and helpful. Great location, in walking distance to all the shopping and restaurants. We will return to this hotel again.

  • Liked — location, views from our balcony, breakfast
  • Disliked — small room
