“awfull expensive”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

I ll have never seen an hotel so expensive in all italia !
4 stars and a so little room ! the smallest bathroom, only a light over the lavatory and the shower in the darkness !
Decorated cozy hotel but low standard, made of first price wood...

And for the price, the staff forgot to tell you that it is by person and not by night ! because they speak only italian language (for a 4 stars hotel !)

We stayed at the Ambra hotel in February when we went ski-ing. The hotel is located in the middle of cortina, a short walk to the bus station and all shops and restaurants. It is small with a huge amount of character but has everything you need for your stay. The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and the breakfast is good. There is car parking and a ski room with heated boot warmers (very welcome). Whether you are going to cortina to ski or visiting during the summer months, this hotel would be an excellent choice.

This hotel has an excellent location for easy access to Faloria lifts and in the middle of the pedestrian zone for shopping. Service in the hotel is amazing, everyone in the hotel tries to make you comfortable including the charming owner. Service standard in this well decorated cozy hotel can not be beaten. Luxury rooms are very tastefully decorated, though not too big.

We stayed in the Tofano room on top floor.

The Good - helpful/friendly staff; very good location close to centre and skiing starts; breakfast was good, nice bathroom; quiet.

The Bad - room a bit too small; small (narrow) bed with uncomfy pillows, very poor wifi signal in room (though there was good connection in lower floors of hotel...).

If I go back to Cortina I will definately consider staying here again....

Room Tip: If wifi connection is important avoid the Tofana room...

We were a group of friends who stayed at Ambra for a week over new years. The hotel is charming, with a lovely lounging area and a bar that serves great aperos. The staff was super helpful, from their spot-on recommendations to their help with travel arrangements and restaurant reservations. The breakfast is varied, everything from yummy pandoro and eggs to gluten free and low cal options. While the rooms are a tad small, there is ample storage space, a must when travelling with a lot of ski gear. The ski room is conveniently located adjacent to the car park. In addition, the faloria ski lifts are a hop away from the hotel... the bar next door has a rocking apero crowd for the apres ski bit. The only slight negative are the bathrooms, which are a bit on the dated side. We'll be back next year for sure!

Stayed here over NYE and had a wonderful time. Staff could not be nicer and location is perfect - right by main shopping drag and very close to Faloria lift. Bar across the street is always great for aperitivos as well. Rooms are indeed a bit on the small side but very comfortable and with nice amenities (Etro stuff in bathroom is divine). Fabulous breakfast. We will back!

Ambra is very well located in the center of Cortina and it's enough for short stay, because it's "basic". It's an old hotel and every room can hear you (your noises and movements) because is too small the room. It should be renovated. The reception is nice and the people very friendly.

Room Tip: Room 19 was the room which we stayed.
