“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

We booked this for us and our two teenagers. They both got a room each as the prices were so reasonable.

It is in an excellent position for the cable car up to where skiing starts, about a three minute walk. At the end of the day it's a five min walk from where the red run back into the town finishes, right past Apres Ski Paradis if you're up for a good end to the day. It is off the main road.

There is only breakfast, lots of cereals, breads etc, nothing hot, but it is very good and more than enough. Nice hot drinks machine.

Very easy to buy lift passes and we rented from Peak Sport next to cable car station who were very helpful, again very convenient. There is a ski room with heated boot rack in the basement of the hotel.

The garni is very clean, rooms were spacious and cleaned every day, I think we got clean towels every day too. Very comfortable bed. There is some noise as everywhere is tiled but nothing to bother you. There are no baths which is the one thing I missed after skiing, but loads of hot water. There is nowhere to sit apart from your room and outside, but if you're skiing thats not an issue.

The family that run it are very polite and helpful. There is a small car park, it took us about 90 mins to drive from Innsbruck.

Really liked the skiing. Prices on the mountain for food and drink are very reasonable and pizza etc is very cheap. Great value for money. Four ski passes were about 800 euro for whole Dolomiti area. Ski hire 400 euro for 4 adults. Having been mugged in Meribel last year we couldn't believe the value for money.

Room Tip: I liked ours at the back although they will all be quiet.

We have already been in this garni' 3 or 4 times over the last few years and we will likely go back again.

The location is fantastic, not too close to the noisy and crowded center of Canazei, but minutes away (walking) from several cableways that will take you to some of the most beautiful easy hikes in the Dolomites. Rooms are wonderful and spacious enough, with lots of wood and always superclean. We always slept beautifully, both because of the nice bed and because noise has never been a problem. Breakfast is great, loads of choice, juices, jams, yoghurts, cereals, bread and pastries (including some wonderful cakes made by the owner himself), you name it. Perhaps the only thing I really don't like is the coffee! The owner has always been super-friendly and generous with advice about hikes (and cake recipes).

All in all, if you are looking for something fancy this place may not be ideal, but if what you need is a superclean, nice and comfy room, and a great breakfast that will even allow you to skip lunch, all for a very reasonable price, this is the place for you!

It is peacefully away from the main road, beautiful, clean and has a very good breakfast. Family owned. Wifi is not free but very cheap. Parking is free and easily available. Canazei is an excellent base to visit the Fossa valley and some of the main peaks of the Dolomites.
