“Excellent base and restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stayed 5 nights here. The room was spacious, comfortable, quiet, clean and properly equipped. There was enough space for the luggage, cupboards and even a front hall (lobby) to keep shoes and hang overcoats.

We used the Ospitale as the base for our hiking/climbing trips in the area. It is close to everything, easy to go to different areas. There are even a few paths that start from the Rifugio. It is also close enough to Cortina. Own car is the best choice but it is possible to run a bicycle or hike there as well. It is not that far away. Bus stop is at the Ospitale actually.

The breakfast is versatile, fresh and healthy. It guarantees a nice start for the day. We had also a delicious dinner there one night. Definitely recommend you to do that.

The service is always friendly and polite and comes with a smile.

We will definitely stay there again if we ever travel in that area again. I'm pretty sure that we will becomes the Dolomites are so amazing.

Room Tip: We had a room on the road side, big room and nice balcon. There may be some noise from the passing c...

We were a little cautious reserving rooms at Locanda Ospitale. It looked nice and the restaurant sounded good but it seemed far from town and we are a family of five.

First, the setting was spectacular, you get sort of a refuio feeling right off of the highway. The rooms were updated, very clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly. And, with food like that you will want to eat in every night. The dinners were not cheep but were a great value. Some of our favorite meals in Italy. Breakfast was also generous and enjoyable.

We were worried about the remoteness; but, it was a short pleasant drive to and from town.

We stayed in two rooms at the north east corner of the hotel, they were connected by a small hallway that could be locked from the rest of the hotel. It was a perfect two room suite for a family.

By the way, we visited Cortina the last week of June. It was a little cold but, he place was quite and everything was open. It seemed like an ideal time to visit. There is so much to do. No matter how long you stay in the area you will wish it was longer.

We stayed five nights at the Ospitale in July 2013 and ate most of our meals there. We can't say enough good things about it. Our room was tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, large and filled with light. The bed and sofa were very comfortable. The meals were some of the best we've had and the service was friendly and relaxed. The wine list was well priced. It was quiet despite it's proximity to the road and it's a quick drive into downtown Cortina. There are many hiking and cross country ski trails nearby. We look forward to our next visit.

We stayed in this refugio up the mountain from Cortina on our snowboarding vacation. The rooms are very pretty, large, clean, and good mattresses. The breakfast was fantastic and the start very friendly. Only draw back is that the hotel is above a very good restaurant. We stayed on the floor above the dining room and could hear some noise, although the extra doors helped some. The bigger issue was when we went out to eat in Cortina on a Saturday night and when we came back the restaurant was so busy we had to drive around for 15 minutes to wait for parking spaces to open up. I suggest you dine in at the wonderful downstairs restaurant on Saturday night instead!

We have stayed in hotel which is above restaurant for 3 nights and had food 2 times.There was big party of us, so we tried everything, and all the food was super. Main courses are priced 16-23 euros which for the quality you get is absolute bargain. Last evening we had birthday party, on which the staff surprised us with 3l bottle of champagne and cake free of charge. The family that runs hotel and restaurant,are one of the friendliest people i ever met.

Room Tip: Stay in a hotel above which is newly renovated.

Originally built in the 12th century, Ospitale is one of the oldest lodges in Europe.

Having being robbed and burnt, destroyed and bombarded, it has always been rebuilt, throughout the centuries, thanks to the enthusiasm of the local population. Today, this family run Alpine-style Rifugio is beautifully located at the heart of the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites and is easily accessible with only 10 minutes’ drive away from the Cortina’s city centre. In winter, it offers cross-country ski-to-door access and, in summer, hiking and biking scenic itineraries. It also features a very appreciated Michelin restaurant with outdoor seating.
