Casa Isola / Galli original Hotel / Marco Galli???

Hi all,

Just getting ready to book for Feb this year but getting really confused about the locations - Is Casa Isola in san rocco area near Marco's bar and is it a good place to stay?? Also the original Galli hotel looks good but is that very far away from where the main action is??

Any help at all would be so much appreciated - or any general reccomendations on good places to stay for young couples??

Thanks a mill

dont know about casa isola.

Original gallis hotel is right next to the ski school at lift 20 (gallis lift) it's central and next to the old gallis pub (now called buddy's last year anyway).

I stayed here before it was renovated a couple of years ago, the food was excellent, hotel was basic and comfortable, the pub bit does suffer from bad drains (not unhygenic) it just gives off a smell when in the toilets.

nearby is Kuhstall, Helvettia and Mikys pubs (@ 5 - 10 min walk). Bus stop @ 5 mins to go to any of the main ski areas.

restaurants Mario's, La Mirage, La Grolla, Bivio, Bellavista all within a 5-10 min walk

U can ski over to the new gondola at the valandrea ski area form gallis via a few lifts and a bit of off piste skiing. I have also skied from the carousello gondola back to lift 20 via the path (inc skiing over the road and a ditch) never tried it the other way though.

San rocco is 10 min walk up the hill, to be honest though apart from allegra bar at the carousello for apres ski (5pm) the other bars are relatively quiet (daphne's, homelywoods, marco's), kokodi(nightclub) is further up san rocco, if you want to party, Gallis is good in terms of Kuhstall / Mikys which are very busy pubs, and then take a taxi to kokodi.

You'll love it anyways, there is also a great apres ski bar on the motolino but the name escapes me.

Not really Kev the Apres Ski at the Allegra is better for that age group IMO. My son (14) at the time was pretty disgusted with the goings on probably because his mother was with him!! and stood in the corner sulking for the hour we were there!! He enjoyed Allegra though
