This hotel is just outside the centre of the nice little town of Fiera di Primiero, in a strategic location whether you are interested in spectacular but very touristy areas around the Pale di San Martino and the Passo Rolle facilities, or the more intimate adjacent Valle del Vanoi. The venue is very pleasant, with an impressive lobby and restaurant area, and it is family run. We had a superior room which, as promised was definitely large. Although the hotel is 3*, with the due refurbishing and equipment (a larger TV set, a fridge/minibar, complimentary items) this room, also endowed with a nice little balcony, could easily be a 4*. The only problem is that right now it is a little dated and tired: ante-deluvian shutter system, same for the bathroom vent, old carpet, mattress that has seen better days, and so on. I would say that the main asset of Castel Pietra is the staff, mostly young: everybody is smiling and polite. Their restaurant is of excellent quality (see separate review), but to enjoy its most wonderful dishes you have to go a la carte: obviously if you choose the far more economical half-board option, reason dictates that you have to expect a less exceptional (but still good) experience. Prices out of high season are very reasonable, whereas I think that during high season they are a bit "less reasonable" :-)

Fiera di Primiero is a small town at the foot of the majestic mountains of Pale San Martino, part of the Dolomites. The hotel is a rather big building (not the biggest) near the outskirts of the townlet, in good condition, run as a family business. The rooms are reasonable, clean and not small, the service is courteous and fine, the attached restaurant is also OK. The owners' claim that the restaurant is of outstanding level - but being well experienced with Slow Food restaurants/trattorie, I'd say it is interesting and good rather than outstanding. The half-board is good value - but a disappointment was for us that after spending a week there, on the last night, a promised (otherwise not huge) discount at the a la carte restaurant was not granted, because we "did not book half-board before arriving". This is small-mindneness and I suggest will not save the venture in case of financial problems. Given that all this only came out at the time of departure, we departed with a little sour feeling, and I regret this end of an otherwise fine stay.

First of all the 5 out of 5 for this review is wrong; it should read SIX out of 5. This hotel goes ABOVE all expectations and delights all guests with originality, attention to detail, and a high standard in ALL things. My room (211) was 3-times the size it needed to be, with a nice sofa and sitting area, desk, lovely balcony, and excellent shower room with toilet and bidet. All kept tidy and clean by good housekeepers. You won't find a fridge or tea-making equipment, but I don't mark it down for those things because many hotels don't have these. I always take my own kettle secretly anyway. The heating (over Christmas) was excellent, WiFi worked very well indeed for numerous devices in every corner of the hotel. The food was truly exquisite! The simplest meal was breakfast, a cold buffet perhaps but ample choice of everything, and it was constantly replenished; Eggs could be cooked to your order. Evening meals were remarkable, full of innovation and experimentation; don't restrict yourself to 'Meat and 2 veg' because the chef here doesn't. Open your mind and then open your mouth to enjoy delights which even if made with familiar ingredients will be served up in unexpected ways. This hotel knows how to do food and their staff know how to cook. But above all this, and probably the biggest reason why I can give this hotel SIX stars is the staff. A very young staff, that itself is remarkable, but this collection of lads and lasses were vivacious, bright, happy, helpful, funny, and worked very hard indeed whether bringing scrambled eggs at breakfast, changing a dish at a meal, or creating cocktails or hot chocolates at the bar. This is both a tribute to the management of this hotel, but also to the spirit of these young characters. Our Christmas at Hotel Castel Pietra was an absolute joy because of the way it was run and because of all the boys and girls that did all the running. Truly EXCELLENT

This was one of the hotels during our bicycle trip in the Dolomites. Very nice place to stay, excellent hotel, nice rooms, nice garden, friendly people. Even our bikes were staying in a nice locked room in the garage. Diner and breakfast were excellent! I hope we can come back in the future with KDS Bike Holidays!
