Hotel Nives is a new, fresh, modern boutique hotel in the very centre of Selva - great location (in a great ski area, to boot). We were 5 couples, some with kids, and took over more than half of the hotel and loved every minute of it ! Spacious, modern rooms with balconies, spotless and well maintained. Comfortable lounge with bar and a well styled dining room for hotel guests. A la carte retaurant and wine bar in the ground floor below - everything in perfect condition: the hotel looks brand new (it has been 3 years in business).
And the food ! Breakfast selection is grand but it is the 6-course dinner that is the supreme achievement. Fantastic salad bar. Great starters. A savoury soup or juice. Perfect pastas. Tasty main course. Yes, there was dessert and cheese too but there is a slight problem with sheer quantity: we quickly learned to be selective and drop one or two courses and I skipped desserts. So no judgement on those. The wine selection is also a delight, with both well known and suprisingly good local wines. All in our group were happy with the spa faciltiies as well as with the massage and pedicure etc. treatments. And the staff (perhaps with one small exception) really worked at keeping us comfortable. The shuttle to the lifts (about 500 meters from hotel) worked well and one could ski back to the hotel (almost- there is one street to be crossed on foot).
What would I change ? Practically nothing - well here is my wish list: Bigger towels in the rooms please (I am XXL large), the ski room is adequate (good lockers) but could be bigger. The cook should be there at 7:30 when breakfast starts, so that hot breakfast would be for early birds as well. And the one waiter with a sour face could find a career change... It is pricey but it is a great hotel and a great experience. When we got home we felt exceptionally rested for a week: haven't slept so well in years. Next time in Val Gardena we will definitely stay there !
