We stayed 5 nights here. The room was spacious, comfortable, quiet, clean and properly equipped. There was enough space for the luggage, cupboards and even a front hall (lobby) to keep shoes and hang overcoats.
We used the Ospitale as the base for our hiking/climbing trips in the area. It is close to everything, easy to go to different areas. There are even a few paths that start from the Rifugio. It is also close enough to Cortina. Own car is the best choice but it is possible to run a bicycle or hike there as well. It is not that far away. Bus stop is at the Ospitale actually.
The breakfast is versatile, fresh and healthy. It guarantees a nice start for the day. We had also a delicious dinner there one night. Definitely recommend you to do that.
The service is always friendly and polite and comes with a smile.
We will definitely stay there again if we ever travel in that area again. I'm pretty sure that we will becomes the Dolomites are so amazing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Originally built in the 12th century, Ospitale is one of the oldest lodges in Europe. Across the centuries, Ospitale has witnessed the passage of a myriad of strangers but also illustrious historical figures. Having being robbed and burnt, destroyed and bombarded, it has always been rebuilt, throughout the centuries, thanks to the enthusiasm of the local population. Today, this family run Alpine-style Rifugio is beautifully located at the heart of the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites and is easily accessible with only 10 minutes’ drive away from the Cortina’s city centre. In winter, it offers cross-country ski-to-door access and, in summer, hiking and biking scenic itineraries. It also features a very appreciated Michelin restaurant with outdoor seating. Spacious rooms at Ospitale include light wood furnishings, parquet floors, satellite flat-screen TV, a safe and free internet access. The private bathroom has free toiletries and hairdryer. Some rooms come with a balcony. ... more less
