Very clean, spacious and well-appointed apartments. There was a bit of a mix-up when we arrived - I thought I had booked a two-bedroom apartment but was shown a one-bedroom apartment with a sofa bed. (In Italian, a "bilocale" has one bedroom and a "trilocale" has two bedrooms.) Luckily there was a two-bedroom apartment available and due to a last-minute offer was on at the same price I had paid for the one-bedroom. The receptionist had to call for permission to upgrade us and this was granted. What a lovely suite of rooms. Master bedroom with very comfortable double bed and good-quality linens and a safe in the wardrobe, separate small bedroom with lovely wooden bunk beds for the children, living/dining/kitchen area with fridge, sink, two-ring electric hob, coffee maker, small dishwasher and Villeroy & Boch tableware. Very nice bathroom with shower over the bath, fluffy towels and bathrobes and slippers. Lots of storage space in the apartment too. Long balcony with view of the sister hotel Grand Hotel Savoia across the road and the moutains behind, and a table and chairs for two. We were not bothered by street noise but if this is a concern rooms on the back are probably quieter. Heavy curtains blocked the light in the bedrooms, which is great for getting children to sleep and ensuring they don't wake up too early!
Wifi is free and very straightforward to log on. Parking is a bit steep at an extra 20 euros a day. Use of the pool and spa facilities in the sister hotel is free and you can get to the spa through the garage so you don't have to go outside. The pool is not large but still pleasant and the jacuzzi is great, very warm and very bubbly! Good sauna and steam rooms too and it is open until 9pm which was good. Surprisingly the tea and coffee is charged extra, this is a bit confusing as in the hotel information sheet the prices are mentioned for the drinks in the minibar and the "waffles" - it turns out these "waffles" are not biscuits but the packets of tea and coffee for the coffee machine!
There is a breakfast room in the hotel as well as a pasticceria a couple of doors up from the hotel and a supermarket five minutes walk away, both are even open on Sunday mornings. Cortina is a pretty town with lovely walks and cable-car trips in the area and this hotel is in a great location for walks in and around the town as well as for easy arrival and departure by car. We would recommend it for families, couples and groups of friends.
