I have been staying at the Hotel Villa Argentina for the past eight years. The hotel enjoys a most spectacular location offering wonderful views of the Dolomites on all sides. It is particularly suitable for families who return year after year. But the main feature is its skier friendly location with direct access to the slopes of the incredibly scenic Pocol area. There is a convenient ski hire shop on site although there are no other shops nearby so to do any shopping you have to go into Cortina d’Ampezzo which is about six kilometres down the road. A bus service links the hotel to both Cortina and other ski areas and stops outside the hotel. The Cinque Torre and Falzarego areas are well worth a visit and can be easily reached by either bus or car. For the motorist there is a free car park at the side and rear of the hotel.
The hotel staff is very friendly, efficient and helpful and Venicio, the new concierge, is always there to welcome you back to the hotel after a hard days skiing. Wi-Fi internet is available for a modest three Euros a week and seems to work in most rooms or in the public areas. Bedrooms are fairly simple and a tad dated but are clean and comfortable. Most have balconies with superb views of the mountains. The bathrooms have either baths or showers and although small are spotlessly clean and work efficiently. Towels are changed daily. The restaurant and lounges are spacious and comfortable although the food for me is occasionally a little uninspiring.
Overall the Argentina is ideal for the skiing enthusiast and families alike and gives unbeatable value for money in this beautiful skiing area.
