“Old world charm in a beautiful town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012 via mobile

We just returned from our stay at the Hotel de la Poste. The hotel was clean and very comfortable. The rooms were well appointed in a European way. There was an Old World Charm there that can't be duplicated in a newer hotel. The service was excellent and the staff was delightful. Lorenzo, the conceirage, was fantastic and the bartender, Giovanni, made great drinks and answered lots of questions. We loved the location and the easy access to great restaurants and shopping. The ski room was small but since we were there fairly late in the season, we had no problems finding room for our boots and skis. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Stayed March 2012

The hotel de la poste is a great place. We feel there like at home. Lorenzo, the concierge, is great! Valerio at the dining room knows want I would like for dinner just reading in my mind. The rooms are clean even if some of them need to be updated. Overall a great spot, our second home. Ps don't miss the aperitivo at the grill, Antonio's Bellini is amazing!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

I think this old, ornate hotel near the center of Cortina is somewhat overated. I stayed here several days while day hiking in the Dolomites. The hotel is in a central location, but the parking area is an uphill distance away in a separate lot. My room was somewhat elaborate, with double doors, but my bath lacked a curtain. Also, the hair dryer was cracked. I can't get worked up over the fact that they provided a TV, a safe, or turn down service. That was expected for the price. Downstairs the restaurant is more impressive than the bar. The lobby is comfortable if you're with a large party that needs space to get together. Otherwise, you probably won't use it much. The historic center of town location may be a plus, but some of the village requires an uphill walk. So if you are visiting when rates are low, maybe take a chance. But I suggest shopping around if the price is high.

This is a very good hotel in the heart of Cortina. Fabulous old fashioned service and good restaurant. Good sized rooms are well furnished with plenty of storage.
You can get modern anywhere and not know what country you are in let alone what city. De la Poste has plenty of character. It was frustrating we had no wifi reception in our room. Treacherous trek to the ski room. And the bed was pretty lumpy. Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed the warm and caring staff in this very clean family-run hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a view to the Socrepes ski area.

Having stayed in a few of the "Grand Dame" hotels of Europe over the years I was a little leery of the De la Poste. Sometimes they are threadbare relics of another age getting by on location and discounting to groups.

De la Poste was a delight. I loved my large airy room with balcony providing great views of town and the mountains -- and a huge well equipped bath. Everything in the room was in excellent shape and immaculately clean.

The staff was friendly and very helpful. Many excellent restaurants and bars nearby. Don't know how it is in winter ski season but it was a perfect place to spend a few nights in Cortina.

Yes, it's not a modern boutique hotel with the latest gadgets, that's the point: it's a Grand Dame - a great lady that is still in her prime.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2010

Grand four star hotel in center of Cortina on the pedestrian mall adjacent to the church. Although Cortina is a ski town in winter and a mountain sport center in summer, this hotel feels more like a city hotel. Staff is friendly, helpful and all speak good English. Rooms are large, comfortable, and many have balconies. Bathrooms are large. Housekeeping does a good job. Some sides of the hotel have street noise because the traffic in Cortina becomes heavy at certain times of the day. Breakfast was disappointing and closer to a continental breakfast than the usual full breakfast of a mountain hotel. We did not eat dinner in the hotel but there are excellent restaurants in Cortina.

This is a fantastic place . So far from the Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton you could ever be.
It is an icon that has been there for years , generation after generation has enjoyed their vacation here , not much has changed .The staff is the same , the food is absolutely delicious The rooms are sufficient , but far from a junior suite at the Mandarin Oriental.
Yes the ski room is a joke , but that's part of the package.
If you are a die hard skier , maybe not for you , but if you want to enjoy an mountain vacation with a lot of charm , history and good location , this is the place to stay.
