“Welcoming and friendly family-owned hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

We were very pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Villa Christina. The Villa Christina is conveniently located in the new part of Dobbiaco - about a 10 minute walk from the old town center - but very close to the tourist office and bike rental places. The rooms were clean, and quiet with good beds; the lobby and dining areas were adequate although a bit too small. We stayed for a full week and took the half-pension option which provided breakfast and dinner. The food was excellent- simple home style cooking but with high quality fresh ingredients - and generous offers of second helpings! The owners (who speak English, Italian and German) are warm and friendly and really made us feel comfortable and at home. We would definitely stay there again.
Dobbiaco and the other towns in the Val Pusteria are all very charming. There are lots of things to do- We took funiculars to high spots in the mountains, had lunch (meats and cheeses) in the various "malgas" (mountain huts) and walked back down, rented bikes and rode 30 miles (all the way downhill) to the charming town of Leinz in Austria. A very relaxing vacation in a beautiful alpine environment.

We once came across this hotel by chance but have been coming back ever since. The owner, Hans, will always have advice ready for your hiking tours (speaks English!) and his wife prepares simple, yet excellent food, often with homegrown vegetables etc. The location is very good, quiet and the hotel is charming. We like it a lot for its cozy feeling, the super friendly owners and the great food.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2006

This was one of only a few places in Toblach / Dobbiaco that bothered to answer my e-mail! Many more failed to reply.

The hotel is close to the railway station and level crossing - although there are few trains - and has an imposing and elegant exterior with geraniums bursting from its many balconies.

Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, with a nice wooden floor, TV, balcony and separate shower and toilet. The only problem was a power cut in the room caused by my girlfriend's hairdryer.

Hans, the owner, was very helpful and replaced the fuse immediately. He advises that you stick to using the low power hairdryer provided in the bathroom.

The hotel's bar and breakfast area suffers from worn and dated decor, but the breakfast buffet was very good.

All in all, our one-night stay at 30 Euros per person including breakfast seemed good value and we would probably stay there again.

Toblach / Dobbiaco, a German speaking town in Italian South Tirol, is a good base from which to explore the famous Drei Zinnen / Tre Cime mountain range.

Our recommendation for evening dining would be Pizzeria Hans.
