“Wonderful ambience, food and service in a very friendly hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2010

Just returned from a week's skiing holiday in the Dolomites staying at the Hotel Armin in Selva. It was a charming friendly hotel and the warmth and welcome from all the staff was exemplary. The food was excellent and the whole experience at the hotel exceeded expectations for a hotel booked as a package from the UK. It was also great to use the Wellness Centre at the end of the day using the aroma therapy shower, sauna and steam room.

The only negative was the location in terms of getting back to the hotel in the evening which involved a 600 yard walk from the Dantercepies side and some messing around from the Campanoi side with skis on/off and skiing alongside the stream.

The hotel bus in the morning was however there to get to the lifts and helped immensely.

We are a family of four who enjoy skiing. From the moment we arrived the hotel was perfect. We booked through Crystal and everything went to plan. Our rooms were lovely with enough space for everything. They were kept beautifully clean by a lovely girl who always smiled. We stayed for Christmas and it was wonderful. The tables in the restaurant were set festively each evening. Our waiter from Hungary was the most efficient and caring waiter I have encountered and the bar man was very friendly and helpful. The owner of the hotel was always checking that everyone was happy and she was pleased to help with any questions. The really outstanding point was the food. We had a five course meal every evening and there wasn't one thing we didn't like. It was all such good quality food, presented very stylishly and with good variety. The Christmas Gala Dinner on Christmas Eve was wonderful with a man playing Carols and other music on the Zither. Each day there was delicious cake waiting for skiers returning from the mountain. The hotel mini bus took skiers to the lifts in the morning and it was possible to ski back reasonably close to the hotel. I hope the hotel look at this website as they really deserve all the praise as they work so hard to ensure their guests have a perfect holiday.

The hotel Armin is the best hotel I have stayed in on a Ski holiday the accomodation is comfortable and spacious the bathroom well equiped the sauna etc fantastic The staff are both friendly and efficient but the best of all is the food 5 courses every night (no choice but if there is anything you dont fancy an alternative is provided) we went with the menu every night and it was all superb The hotel has a good mix of nationalities so you really feel like you are abroad !! Did I mention the minibus service - your own personal taxi to the slopes every morning not that the main lift Ciamponoi was very far at all Would I recommend it Yes unreservedly will I go back Yes definetley next year BYTW the sking area is awesome

Everything from start to finish was excellent. Best food I've had at any half board ski holiday hotel. Also wine list was superb. Staff from Owner to room cleaners were all helpful and very friendly. Have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a holiday.

We have just returned from a great week at the Hotel Armin. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly throughout, and the food was excellent.

Every night there was a different five course dinner and on New Year's eve, we had a superb six course dinner with canapes and prosecco (I believe they do a similar gala dinner every week). There is also a good wine list and sommelier. Breakfast was also pretty good - although reasonably standard.

The room was fine - spacious and clean. The location is good, a bit further from the lifts than would be ideal, but the hotel operates a ski bus in the morning.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Wow...this was a truly wonderful hotel. The family are extremely hospitable and the best part was the food they served...not to mention nice rooms with a balcony. The location is also perfect, a short walk to the lifts and to the bustling town.

I hope to be back there next winter. I've been skiing all my life and staying in various dwellings so you can take my word for this recommendation!
