Hotel La Genzianella
Ranked #1 of 41 Hotels in Bormio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

I have been traveling through the Dolomites on a cycling tour for the past 8 days and this has been the best hotel by far. The family proprietors have definitely made an effort to cater to cyclists, but this should not dissuade normal (non-cycling) people from staying at Gentzianella.

The kitchen produces a fabulous three course meal every night with 4 or five options for each course. Service during the dinner is efficient without being too cold - staff are easily able to deal with the antics of my traveling companions!

Rooms are clean with most having a balcony to enjoy the views of snow capped mountains.

Now some comments relevant to the cycling fraternity:

I am envious of the bike storage and workshop area. We have not come across anything like it in our travels. Keycard access provides good security for those wanting to bring their carbon fibre indulgence on tour.

The hotel also offers a washing facility where they will take a washing bag of guest cycling clothes every day for cleaning. What a great idea! The owners understand that by doing the little extras they leave guests with a good impression of the hotel.

I would defintely choose to stay here again in future. In fact, I would make sure I could get a room at Hotel Gentzianella before I booked my flights to Italy.

I recently stayed in this hotel on a long weekend cycling and was really impressed by it. The rooms were good and all seemed to have balconies with views of the surrounding mountains. There is a great bike room and they even wash your kit overnight. The food is excellent - delicious, healthy and plentiful. However this would all count for nothing with such great staff - they are all so friendly, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. They may not be able to cycle you up the hills but the hotel is a great place to relax after a day in the saddle. I'll be back.

Beautifull hotel and surroundings, fantastic breakfast and dinner, charming and fantistic familiy making you feel at home. All facilities available so that bikers do not have to think about anything but cycling. Perfect!

I was part of a group of 14 people on a cycling trip last w/e. Hands to down the most organised, friendly, comfortable place I have stayed at for a cycling trip.
The food was very excellent, the rooms well fitted out, modern but still in keeping with the mountain retreat style, they had a very secure bike locker and fully stocked workshop for the inevitable pre-ride fettling.

Thank you Genzianella for making this cycling adventure one to remember.

Just returned from a long weekend in Bormio and was very impressed by this hotel. The rooms are good and clean, the food is delicious but what really makes it is the staff - they are all so friendly, helpful and polite. If I go back to Bormio I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

The people of th hotel are verry friendly and helpfull. The rooms are verry clean. The food was typical Italian and verry refined. The locatian for our bike trip was perfect, on the foot of the Stelvio and not far from mortirollo an gavia.

We went to Bormio to ride bike (Bormio 2000, Mortirolo, Gavia, Stelvio) and we stayed in the hotel for 3 nights.
First Delight : our clothes to ride bike were washed freshly every day !
Furthermore : excellent accommodation to store and maintain bikes.
On the first evening we had dinner in the hotel -> delicious 4 course meal for a very reasonable price.
The breakfast was awesome. Rooms were very nice and clean.
Overall this hotel only has 3 stars on paper, in reality it's a 4 + hotel.
Next year we'll be back !

With love, from Belgium, Marc & Eddy
