“Great Hotel, but out of the way”
Reviewed October 7, 2009

We stayed here after driving the Stelvio Pass for one night. The hotel itself if quite nice and well maintained but out of the way from Bormio. It's about 10-15 minutes up the hill from the town in a locale called Ciuk and there is really nothing else there so dont plan on walking to anything. The view from the deck and restaurant is beautiful and it sits right next to a ski lift, so in the winter, the location may be preferable. That being said, the roads to get there are so tight and difficult in good conidtions, I cannot imagine driving there if it were at all icy. The rooms were small and the hotel is a bit dated, but everything seems to be maintanted well and the bathroom in our room looked like it had been recently renovated. Excellent, roomy shower with lots of pressure and hot water--very important for a hotel this high up in the mountains. The restaurant has a very limited menu in the summer due the low volume of guests and the food was fine (not bad, not great, just fine). Brunch the next morning was good with a typical European spread. The family that runs it was very helpful and happy although only one of them spoke English. We got along fine using Spanish and the few Italian words we knew so just be prepared.

I will give the hotel a 'recommend' although it's really set up as a ski chalet. they do a good job and put out the effort.

Our stay at the Vallechiara Hotel was excellent. The staff personel was very accommodating, always available to answer questions and to help with requests. The hotel itself was very nice: the rooms were comfortable and clean, the restaurant offered very good food with a breathtaking view on the valley. Finally, the Vallechiara was ideal for winter sports since ski rental could be made on site and we were within walking distance from the ski lift (even with ski boots on)!
