I stayed at the Hotel Sassella recently on a week-long business trip. The rooms aren't fancy, but they are comfortable and roomy -- and you are treated like you're staying in a 5 star hotel. The hotel is set in the middle of a Northern Italian town that dates back to the 12th century. The bell tower of the "new" church, built in 1677 was just outside my room, and the bells woke me each morning. It was like being in heaven. The hotel is run by a family, and they do everything they can to make your stay a pleasure. Even though the hotel is small (I think only 16 rooms) they have a modern spa on the 4th floor, equiped with two dry saunas, a great Turkish sauna, a whirlpool and multiple foot whirlpools. The "gym" has only a few pieces of workout equipment, but they are in good repair and the view of the mountains from the window is spectacular. But most of all, the food at dinner is amazing. The food is truly gourmet, with a great wine selection and a number of excellent grappas to choose from. The host "Jim" makes sure that everyone is satisfied. We ate in the hotel 5 out of six nights -- why go anywhere else? I had a free day before my next business obligation and the staff arranged a bicyle for me so that I could ride to the nearby town of Tirano. Within a 20 minute drive are two ancient Roman baths that have been turned into luxurious spas. I'd go back here in a heartbeat. This is a great way to get to know what Italy is really like -- far away from the tourist crowds.
