“I return to the Montana yet again :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I returned to Cortina, the undisputed 'jewel in the crown' of the Dolomites, again in Sep 2012. I looked no further than the wonderful Hotel Montana yet again as the best place to stay. I have noticed over the years I have been staying here that familiar faces, from all over the world, keep reappearing year after year in this fantastic hotel. There is a reason for this. The Hotel Montana has an unbeatable location within Cortina. Everything you could need for winter or summer adventure is within 200 metres of the front door!. The rooms are fantastic, unrealistically cheap, and the breakfast is great but again I must say that the best thing about the Montana is the wonderful staff. They are 'locals' so there is not much about the area that they dont know about, and if they dont...they will know someone who does!. During the summer the hotel is frequented by many professional climbers, hikers and via ferraterists who return here year after year. This makes for a fantastic 'networking' opportunity to learn more about the region, its climbs and hikes, as these people are always genuinely helpful if you ask. I have gained invaluable information this way. The reception/lounge area and cozy breakfast room are therefore a wonderful alpine information resource! I have no hesitation in recommending the Montana to anyone wishing to visit one of the most unique alpine regions in the world. I will definately be returning..

A small Meublè in Cortina, excellent location and very warm staff. We stood there for one night only and the rooms are clean and silent (except for the church bells, the hotel is in front of a church)

We stayed in Hotel Montana for one night and had an enjoyable stay. The hotel is well located in the middle of town. You step out the front door and there are the shops and restaurants. Cortina is a stunning town to visit. Unfortunately we had bad weather so could not go up in the cable car, but we looked around town and played chess in the hotel lounge.The hotel rooms are simple but spotlessly clean and the hotel has a homely feel. The staff are friendly and the included breakfast was delicious, served in a cosy breakfast room. Overall, we would highly recommend this hotel. It was great value for the price.

We spent two nights here and found Hotel Montana offered great value and comfort in a perfect setting. I agree with others - park and walk the town. We went out to 5 Torri and took the cable car up over the pass. Amazing views. Our host was most helpful.

Room Tip: We had a room with balcony overlooking the pedestrian path and church tower - except for the shock o...

You can't get more central in Cortina than the Montana. It's located facing the pedestrian area, right across from the church and bell tower that mark the center of Cortina. Our hosts were as accomodating and helpful as they possibly could have been. Breakfast was very good, though the breakfast room was too small for the number of hotel guests. Our room was comfortable with pillows that were actually nice to sleep on, rather than the rock hard pillows we found on the rest of our trip through the Dolomites. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the balcony overlooking the pedestrian zone each evening with a glass of wine before heading out to dinner. Parking is very limited and we were quite fortunate to find a space next to the hotel. The hotel can be a little tricky to find even though it's well-marked, but once you do, park and head out on foot from there. While we weren't so impressed with Cortina itself (all very high-end expensive), we very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Montana and would recommend it highly.

A lovely cosy family run hotel in the centre of Cortina. Couldn't believe that it was only a 2 star hotel. Our room was spacious with well equipped en suite. Very quaint with lots of pine and an extensive collection of art. No bar or restaurant but then it is in the absolute centre of Cortina so no need for one. Friendly staff and very clean. Good hearty breakfast. But watch out for the church bells; they start at 7am and continue on the quarter hour until 9pm. However, we were up early to go walking so it was a useful alarm clock!

Room Tip: Attic rooms are lovely.

The Montana isn't a 4 star hotel, but it's located centrally, and if you are skiing with your own gear, it's the rare 2-star hotel with a lift (elevator). I came to Cortina without any specific hotel recommendations, but I wanted to stay briefly in the Italian part of the Alto Adego (sp) and this happened to also be where the 1956 Olympic were held. The tourist office recommended the Montana, and it did not disappoint. Probably best for singles, couples, or small families.

I came high season, I think Jan of 2006, same year as the then Italian winter Olympics (one run was fenced off for time trials). You do need several days to adequately ski the surrounding slows, and the Montana is a good place to stay for this.

I make one specific recommendation, best for the church bell town, but for many of the buildings down town, examine the dolomite quarried from around town, the rock sometimes contains small fossils in the building's walls.

Room Tip: No specific room location recommendations. The main street does not have car traffic. It's a wal...
