We travelled to Cortina the last part of January for a ski trip and a few days in Venice. The location of the hotel was perfect for getting to the ski slopes. There is a rear door that brings you close to the bus station which takes you to the other slopes or you can walk to the Faloria tram, a little bit further. There is no need for a car at this hotel in fact given that some streets are one way and that does not affect pedestrian traffic I think a bus from Venice airport is perfect. It is about 2 hours, the first hour is on an autostrasse but the last is in the mountains with some narrow passages through towns. Beautiful to see and admire without having to drive it. The hotel itself is not luxury in its appointments but grand lobbies are not needed to impress. The room was spacious by european standards and the bathroom was modern . Everything was very clean and maintained every day. The staff were extremely helpful particularly Roberta in recommending restaurants, the vagaries of how things work in Cortina and optional experiences if skiing was not your prime objective. I have read that if you are an extreme skiier this would not be your destination and I would agree but if you want to have fun with it, enjoy the food, walk the town, take in the Friday market for shopping, then I don't think you can go wrong. All the house wines in the restaurants are better than they serve here.English is spoken everywhere but if you have a few words in Italian I think they appreciate the effort.
