“the way it used to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2010

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.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2009

We were looking for a boutique luxury hotel in Cortina. Unfortunately the Hotel de la Poste did not deliver. There is nothing dreadfully wrong and the hotel is well-located, well run and pleasant. In the 1970s this would have been a top hotel - however time has moved on and the hotel hasn't.

In particular:

- rooms are pleasant, but dated, with no iPod docks, LCDs TV and standard toiletries;
- wi-fi is not included;
- lounge is unwelcoming. Despite having a great fireplace it was not lit (in depths of winter) with the centre of attention being a small TV set to an Italian channel. We sat for 20 mins with no service. There was nowhere comfortable to relax.
- restaurant food was good, but service over complicated and formal with 2 waiters serving each course.
- skiier are somewhat like second class citizens - tiny ski-room and boot warmer was only switched on if I went down before breakfast.
- despite pre-booking garage parking when we arrived it was not available and we had to park a walk away, outside in car-park that had turned into ice-rink.

However the hotel is priced as if it is a luxury boutique. My advice is to to one of the much better value other 4* hotels in center of Cortina.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel immensely. The hotel has a wonderful comfortable feeland the location is excellent. Another review has commented it is not best located for the ski lifts, but the ski bus stops practically at the front door, and there is a taxi stand there too. Just a tip, take a card from a taxi to phone in case you find yourself stranded somewhere cold and miserable, at the end of a ski.Our rooms were comfortable, we had beautiful views of the town and mountains. The bar was comfortable, cosy and busy, the dining room was wonderful, but too formal for our taste, although the food was exceptional.
A couple of small things could be improved, the ski boot room was just too small, for a hotel of this standard it really let it down.It was also impossible to get hold of an iron, it was possible to get clothes pressed but you had to leave them out in the morning, not much use if you've arrived in the afternoon and need something to wear for dinner.
As another review has mentioned the front office staff were friendly, helpful and efficient.

We had booked into the Mirimonte but moved to the Della Poste after feeling seperated from the main village at Cortina. We had a great expereince there and would highly recommend this property. The staff was friendly and the rooms were very, very clean. The front seating area is great for wathcing the world go by while sipping a beer or glass of wine.

We stayed at the Hotel de la Poste for a long weekend in January '06. We found it thanks to the 'Hip Hotels' guide to Italy. It is really well situated on the main drag in Cortina which is the pedestrianised Corso d'Italia.

The staff were lovely - no young kids not knowing what they are doing here. Instead, the hotel employs a team of old men who run around after you in white jackets and bow ties the whole time.

The rooms were very comfortable with lots of storage. We had a jacuzzi bath which was very welcome after a hard day on the ski slopes. Everything was VERY clean. There was a daily turn down service and each night we came home to
chocolates on the pillow.

Breakfast was good - plenty of good, strong coffee and all the usual european breakfast fare.

The bar is lovely - panelled with mature dark wood. Not ven an inch of the yellow pine you normally find in the alps... but then this is the Dolomites and the hotel refelcts that and oozes history. Go to the bar and have a 'Puccini' which is presecco mixed with mandarin juice.

There is a heated boot store for skiers to use.

As with most of the hotels in Cortina - it isn't all that handy for the slopes. We had a hire car, though, and found the independance rather useful.

We have stayed at the Hotel de la Poste in Cortina Italy for the past 4 years during the Womens World Cup Ski Match and it is an excellent hotel. The service is grand, the restaurant is excellent a great value for the half boards stay. The staff is wonderful and really a classy place to stay. It is also normal to run into some vip's and just all in all splendid ! I would highly recommend this hotel and also the ski area is the best in Italy. Enjoy...
