“still great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

I'm a repeat guest here. It remains a very convenient hotel with rooms and staff better than most hotels in it's class. Heart of town location. Highly recommended for your stay in Cortina. Even though it was two years since my last stay, they recognized me as I walked in the door.

We stayed 2 nights in June 2014. Rooms were clean and comfortable, if a bit "tired". Best breakfast we encountered in 2 weeks of travelling in Italy - good variety with option of ordering a cooked breakfast.
Parking was free. In the weekend we stayed the local police chose to ignore parking permits and fined us (they did this to everyone in town). Staff were very understanding and credited us the cost of the fine (which they really didn't have to do).

What a lovely place to stay. Staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating. Location was central and breakfast was great. I left my jacket behind and the hotel staff was so kind and offered to send it to me in NYC.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

This is not actually a hotel because it does not have a full service restaurant and only serves a cold buffet breakfast to its guests. Despite this, it is a very reasonably priced, comfortable, cozy, clean,and a very friendly place to stay in Cortina only a block from the bus station and in the center of town. It has a small, comfortable bar. There is a sauna and hot tub but sadly they do charge extra to use these. Parking is an issue only if travelling by car--we were winter skiiers and arrived by bus from Venice. If you are looking for a luxury hotel this is not for you but if you want a comfortable, small, budget, clean and friendly place to stay in Cortina this fills the bill.

Room Tip: There is partying outside on Friday and Saturday nights so ask if there are rooms that are away from...

Stayed for two nights in January 2014 for a short ski stop.

Pros: Some of the friendliest service I've received at a hotel. The location is superb -- it's just steps away from the bus terminal, ski rental (you receive a 10% discount on rentals when you stay here), the main street of Cortina, and the lift to faloria. Also, the bathroom was spectacular with a soaker tub and very spacious (great after a long day of skiing!).

Cons: The perfuming of the room was a bit much when we first arrived. Had to air it out a bit before we settled in.

This hotel claims to be three star, and has a Trip Advisor certificate on the door. However, the property is very run down, the room had a chemical smell, and our balcony had a large crack down the centre. The price supposedly included breakfast, yet there was a one euro charge for a boiled egg, 1.50 for toast and a glass of orange juice was euro 3.50! They also charged 20 euros per reason to use sauna and jacuzzi. Beware!

Although less expensive than comparable Cortina hotels, the lack of private parking is a big problem. On arrival, we were told that the hotel had no car park and to drive round the town to find a public space - it took 90 min. However, it gave us time to see Cortina, which is far too tacky and degraded. Also, if you want any culture bring your own! That said, the hotel stuff were then very helpful and highlighted several fantastic walks in the stunning mountains. Next time we'll try nearby San Vito.
