We were six guys on a short bicycle trip, doing the famous passes in the region: Mortirolo, Stelvio, Gavia. Whenever there was a technical or historical problem, we got immediate help from the host, including direct delivery of spare parts :-)

The food was excellent and the dining was cosy. We felt serviced at a high level :-)

I would love to come back for more biking or for skiing in the winter.

Room Tip: The wiew to the east is better, including the hotel's own garden

Best bike hotel I have ever visited. Fantastic place to stay if you want to test yourself on Stelvio, Mortirolo, Gavia and other climbs in the area. Excellent food and service. The free laundry service for cycling clothes is a great extra bonus.

I have nothing bad to write about this hotel. The service and food is very good. There is a room for bicycles with tools for repairing. It is situated close to famous climbs such as Mortirolo, Gavia and Stelvio. Absolutely super place for cyclists.

We stayed here n the last week of June 2013 with a group of 6 road cyclists from the Netherlands and I cannot recommend this hotel enough, it was just fantastic. Although we were slightly unlucky with below average temperatures, snow and rain climbing the Stelvio, Gavia, Mortirolo and other Passo's around Bormio, Hotel Alu though was the best thing ever to return to after a hard and long day on the bicycle.

Chiara and her staff made us feel very welcome, the rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable and the beds provided for a good night sleep. Service was great in every respect from in-house bicycle storage, maintenance and repair room with all equipment in place, bicycle clothes washed every day for free, excellent breakfast and diners. The staff were just doing whatever they could to make our stay a success. On request the wellness and spa, sauna and baths were put on in the afternoon to sooth our tired bodies. What can I say more; if you choose Bormio as your base for cycling stay in Hotel Alu.

Second group trip to this great hotel, cannot recommend it more highly. Wonderfully run by Kiarra with great help from Beppe who guided us through some fantastical local wines to complement the great food. Bormio is a great place to visit, great cycling in summer, skiing in winter. Terrific shopping, lovely Italian people

I cannot recommend this place enough. Rooms and public areas are gorgeous, a mix of mountain and contemporary style. Excellent location. I'd definitely recommend the half board option as we really looked forward to our four fabulous courses of Italian deliciousness every night! Great choice at breakfast also, with something to please everyone. Beppe and Chiara are fabulous hosts and went out of their way to ensure that we had a fantastic time whilst we were there. We will definitely be returning here again soon and I'd recommend this hotel to anyone.

If you are a motorcyclist or indeed a road or mountain cyclist, you must visit this area as it is absolute paradise for us! In every direction you go,the scenery and roads are out of this world. The people are so welcoming and nice.

The hotel's location is the best in Bormio. The location was so close to the slopes you could see the skiers from our bedroom window and close to the center of the city. The staff were friendly and helpful. The accommodation was great, in the room is warm. Very good room cleaning. The bed is very comfortable, great mattress. The food was excellent. The restaurant buffet was diverse, both for breakfast and dinner. Staff in the restaurant perfect. Very beautiful interior of hotel lobby. On the lower ground floor there is a sauna, massage room. Warm lockers for skis and boots. We will definitely be back next year.
