“Most unfriendly owners (desk), but ...good restaurant staff and nice food!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I would give an 'good' quotation for the hotel itself.
The food is great and always enough.
The pool area is big enough, and there's enough space to sun outside and you have wellness towels and bathrobe.
The staff at the restaurant is very friendly and patient to translate the menu if necessary.
There are a lot of nice rooms, but we've got a room at the first floor at the back of the hotel: above the kitchen and from 7:00 am on a coming and going of trucks...too much noise.
But then: the owners, who walk around with their dogs, have really an attitude. They don't give any information, are not friendly on arrival, do not ask if everything is at your wish....i never saw them smile...
Luckily we had a lot of nice walks and we get a lot of big smiles of the staff of the restaurant, they are top !
Would we recommend it to are friends ?...no, we saw a lot of beautiful other hotels in Ortisei

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

We are returning to Alpenheim for almost ten years. I have read the reviews and in general can agree.
Location - very good, however still about one km from the city centre and the closest lifts = not for a lazy holiday.
Rooms - modern, clean, very well equipped, no AC (but not necessary in mountains). We were very satisfied!
Food - very good although not a "fine cuisine"
Wine and drinks - an excellent choice!
Staff and service - perfect! I have read a complaint that there is no constant bar staff - it is true but we never waited without service more than for a minute.
Sure, it might be better to have a constant person at the bar but it would increase the cost = prices and so decrease the value for money paid as a consequence.

Excellent hotel, very nice and well positioned. Very good dinners too.
- this sort of hotels is expected to have constant bar service and more products
- the staff (expecially reception) should be more kind and should understand that they manage a high level hotel not a bed and breakfast. More kind and more guest satisfaction in a proactive way

Hotel Alpenheim is a super family run hotel in the ski resort of Val Gardena. The service from the staff is excellant. The ski bus shuttle from Frederich is a great free extra from the hotel.
The food in the restaurant is brillant, very high quality. It also has a great sauna and swimming pool to relax after hard days skiing.
All in all a great hotel

My wife and I stayed here with our 7-month daughter in the 2nd week of September. This is a very good hotel. The staff is very hospitable, the food is truly good and extensive. Also there is a very nice bar. The rooms are very clean and very new. The hotel is situated along the general walkpath towards Ortisei centre, from where one can make easy ascents towards various pathways. The pool is very nice. We would definitely recommend anyone to stay here, and are considering ourselves to return for the winter season.

This was our second Christmas at the Alpenheim. the first time we went with our son and we returned with our brother in law,his wife and my brother.

The family who own and run the hotel are all experienced hoteliers and it really shows. Rooms are spacious and we we grouped together on both occassions which made for more enjoyment for our group. There is nothing more irritating that having one room on each floor.

The food was always freshly cooked and with enough choice to meet the fussiest palate and a vegetarian who always found plenty to enjoy.

The double rooms with balconies have a wonderful view of the valley and the lit up nursery slopes and are ideal if there is a non skier in the party. There are smaller rooms at the rear fo the building which are absolutely fine and suitable for children and younger members fo the party who may have a more limited budget. The spa in the basement was a small delicious space to relax in and we all enjoyed the attentions of the therapist after a day on the slopes. The non skiers in the party were given advice on things to do in the town and greatly enjoyed the five pool complex to which we had free entrance with our stay at the hotel.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and when a 52 year old novice skier was missing at 6 pm, the owners really swung into action to find him contacting the emergency services, ski hire shops and his guide within minutes. It was an impressive performance and when he was found unharmed there was genuine pleasure and a warm welcome for him.

On both occassions we stayed we have felt we received excellent value and returned home having had a most enjoyable holiday. I would recommend this hotel to adults and families alike.

My husband and I just returned from an 11 day stay through Christmas and New Years at the Hotel Alpenheim. Our 'superior' room on the second floor was lovely and comfortable. (We did only have a bath, rather than a shower, something to ask about when booking.) The hotel staff was professional, efficient and provided all information needed in English. Upon arrival we received a pamphlet explaining the hotel services, meal times, and activities in the surrounding towns for the week ahead. We subscribed to the 'half board' option and found the breakfast selections abundant and the evening meals and 3 'gala' dinners delicious and quite varied in selection. The owner's knowledge of wine and the well-stocked wine cellar only added to our overall enjoyable, relaxing stay. This being our first visit to the Dolomites we found Ortesei and the surrounding mountain slopes and activities a fantastic vacation location for couples and families with many activities for all ages and energy levels (downhill and cross country skiing, nordic walking, sledding, sleigh rides, horseback riding, swimming at the indoor pool, shopping, great eating, spa-ing).
Hotel Alpenheim provides a pass to use the indoor pool in town.
Hotel Alpenheim is located about 15 minutes walk from the center of Ortesei along an easily accessible path. For skiing, there is a ski bus stop about 50 meters from the hotel and the buses run at a frequency of 15 minutes or less.

Stayed December 2007
