“almost excellent, just missed it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We liked this hotel from the start. It is in a beautiful location. It smelled really nice and checkin was easy. Our room was clean and bigger than other rooms we had in Italy. We had not planned to eat dinner at the hotel but we were attracted by the old grand hotel, one serving dinner, at a reasonable price. Generally the food was good to very good. Overall our stay here was bordering on excellent but missed the mark in one simple area: desk service. I wanted to talk to the desk people about setting up our sightseeing day but there was no one around when I went looking for them. We ended up doing our own sightseeing without local recommendations. Also we had to catch an early flight so I cashed out the night before. The desk clerk said he would have some coffee for us in the morning but when morning came there was no clerk and no coffee. We would stay here again but I would like to see more available and committed desk service. This hotel almost received a special award but just missed the mark.

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

The location is wonderful if you ski or like the outdoors. Treeking starts right from the hotel, so does the skiing, right outside the door you go and ready to ski you are. The rooms need a little remodeling

The best thing about this hotel is its location. It is isolated (about 5 km from Cortina, going upper on the road to Lagazuoi). It is ski-in ski-out. There is a nice plateau and slopes just behind the hotel.
All around everything is peaceful and quiet! And the views from the rooms....!!!

The hotel has enough ski-lockers and a big boot-room.
The hotel is extremely charming, because it is old (probably built arround, with old furniture. The present building was built after the WW2, in the '50s. Therefore, one should expect old style architecture, which - for us - is very very nice and cozy. There is also a games-room, a saloon with a big screen TV (where nobody really stays...).
There is a restaurant, a bar, cafee, and nice small terrace in front of the hotel, where sun always shines in the morning, so it is a perfect place to start your day.

The breakfast is good. The omelette was strange though (not very good). But the rest os very good.
The dinner is totally worth 20Euro/person, for a 2 course + dessert meal, + free salads (lots of them, and very very tasty). It's not that the price is good, but the quality and taste of food are very good.
We payed about 110 E/night/room including breakfast, so I would say it is a pretty good price, or a ski-in ski-out HOTEL.
Those of you who ski and tried ski-in ski-out know what I am talking about.

The only small issue is that Italians don't really speak any English, so sometimes it can difficult to make yourself understood. This was also valid in the hotel, so body language prevailed.

The staff and the owner (a nice lady) are so welcoming, that they have a lot (and I mean A LOT) of customers coming every year, for many ears now. And it's very nice how the staff know all of them by name and they know their habits and preferences.

I would totally recommend this hotel. I suppose in the summer is also that nice, but at least for winter (which I can speak of), it is perfect!! Too bad Dolomites have short pistes....

Room Tip: Any room, no matter the side of the building it is on, will have a beautiful view. Mountains are all...

What can I say about this hotel, beautiful position, beautiful hotel. The area this hotel sits in is gorgeous. Just loved staying here. Great Ambiance. Very clean and our stay included breakfast which is always appreciated. We were only here for one night arriving late afternoon, leaving early morning but really enjoyed our short stay.

This was our first visit to this hotel but it wont be the last for sure. We had apartment with basically 2 room connected with inner door (one with 2 single beds for children and other room wit big bed for us) and with balcony . The rooms where very spacious and clean. The beds are really comfortable. Since we are family of ski fanatics the location of the hotel was perfect for us, just at the slopes :).

The hotel have ski storage room with blower air for ski shoes, place for skis with locker for every room. Also there is ski rental and maintenance shop.

We had half-board during our stay. For breakfast it was classic buffet breakfast, and my recommendation is that u go among the first since it can happened that later something ran out. For dinner u could chose among 6 or 7 different meals (starter, main course and dessert) and the food was very delicious.

The hotel stuff is very helpful and polite, best regards for all of them. The hotel have huge terrace where u can sit down, enjoy your tee and catch a sun wit the view of the mountains. The Wi Fi is good. My only remark is that the hotel lift is too small.

In the evening u can sit down at the hotel bar and play some cards and the kids can use the game room. There is no disco or similar. If u are looking four peaceful vacation and u are in love with skiing this is the right hotel for you.

We had excellent vacation here and for sure we will comeback.

Room Tip: we had room 99 and 100 looking in front of the hotel and over the mountains.
