“We Loved Hotel Cavallino d' Oro-Very Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2011

We stayed in Suite #6 and it had a spacious bedroom and bathroom along with a very nice patio with several lounge chairs, table and chairs and a great view of the mountains.
The suite was a great value for the money. This was the best room we had during our stay in Italy. Our room and the hotel is decorated with great charm. The front desk staff throughout our stay were always very helpful and spoke excellent English. They have a very large bar area near the lobby that provides a place to have drinks and mingle with the other guests. The WiFi didn't work for us in our room, but they have a computer in the lobby that worked fine. The restaurant has excellent food and we had 2 dinners there. Only negative is that the waiter Marco wasn't very helpful with the translation of the menu items on the 1st night (it was in German) but the 2nd night we asked for a menu in Italian which worked better for us. Breakfast buffet choices & food was great. We used the complimentary laundry which we appreciated for the convenience. We enjoyed the hiking in the Alpi di Siusi. This is a wonderful spot to take a break from the cities. If you arrive by car, they do provide complimentary parking in a private secured parking structure.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the Suites - well worth the money.

I should just copy and paste all of the other positive reviews people have written about this hotel. This was our third trip to Castelrotto and our second time to stay at Cavallino d'Oro. This hotel is beautiful, clean, and professionally managed. The rooms and public areas are tastefully furnished and decorated with an eye for artistic detail. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are beautifully modern with a big, inviting tub. The price of the hotel makes it an excellent value. In fact, it was our least expensive hotel for this two-week trip to Italy.

We spent our days hiking, but we enjoyed spending our late afternoons and evenings in our room and in the hotel public areas. The bar is like a beautifully decorated parlor in a private home. You can pass the time there with your traveling partner or you can interact with other guests. The hotel breakfast is great and wonderfully presented in their elegant dining room. We had our lunches while we were out hiking. (Hiking in Europe is so civilized. You're never more than a half hour away from food and drink.) But, we took all of our evening meals at the hotel. On our past stays, we've sampled the other restaurants in town -- which are pretty good -- but we found that we couldn't beat the hotel restaurant for quality, service, and value.

The hotel has a free, guest laundry. The dryer takes a little time, so don't get into laundry if you plan to do a lot of other activities that day. The hotel provides free-parking in a reserved section of a new, public garage. It's located very nearby and has an elevator that brings you up to street level just a stone's throw from the hotel door. The parking is a whole lot closer than your average American chain hotel. If you're taking the bus, the station is right behind the hotel.

The hotel facility is very nice, but the main attraction of Cavallino d'Oro is the people who run it. They are friendly, professional, and possess excellent language skills. The guests at this hotel primarily speak either German, Italian, or English. The staff seems to be fluent in all three. We really enjoyed meeting and interacting with the people who work here. It made the meals very pleasant. And we enjoyed spending a couple of minutes with the front desk staff as we came and went.

Castelrotto is one of our favorite destinations. This hotel will always be our first choice. If necessary we would try to change our itinerary in order to get reservations here.

This hotel is ideally situated, meticulously maintained, and operated in the highest standard of South Tyrolean efficiency and order. Its location -- just a few minutes from the bus station -- makes travel to the Seiser Alm quick and easy. For those venturing out on day visits to neighboring towns and places, the Mobil Card is a great value for all forms of travel throughout the South Tyrol. A special thanks to Rosi (hotel's front desk) is in order here for her help in sorting out bus schedules and connections.

Finally, we can't finish this review without mentioning that the half-board option of breakfast and dinner was greatly appreciated. Food quality and choices were excellent.

Our compliments to the owners of this family-run hotel for their dedication to high service.

The room was very nice and the people at the front desk spoke very good English. They went out of their way to be helpful even when I was trying to find a good location for wireless internet. They also have a very good restaurant.

The best hotel we stayed at while touring northern Italy. It is centrally located in town and most rooms have wonderful views of the mountains/town. The hotel and it's staff are exceptional--I can't say enough about it! The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel and surrounding town is like walking into a storybook.

Take time to wander the town and the surrounding area. Clean air, friendly people, and exceptional views. This hotel and town made it so difficult for us to leave.

If you like art, antiques, history, and beauty, this hotel is sure to charm you. If you like excellent food and first-rate service, you'll love eating here. If you like mountains, peace and quiet, and rural charm, you'll love this little town, nestled in a valley in the Dolomites. Don't expect pasta and the lazy, laid-back Italian charm here. Look, instead, for Austrian efficiency and the charm of fine woodcraft.

We'd return again if we get the chance.
