“A special place...”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

Just returned from a trip to this lovely part of Italy...first - it is a good idea to follow the colored signs in and around town to get you to this hotel - follow the purple arrows - the hotel is easy to find if you do this (and the hotel confirmed this in their note to me prior to my stay). We arrived, were greeted warmly and shown to our room...the view was amazing - the village and the mountains - blue skies and sunshine...the bed was large with 2 fluffy duvet covers, bathrobes (for the spa), the room had a patio, chaises in the yard for our room (and other rooms had them as well) and the flowers and green plants surrounded the building and the patios were gorgeous. We tried the saunas (nude), whirlpool (also nude) and this is just how it is done (there are no leering eyes)...we particularly liked the turkish aromatherapy sauna...there are 2 areas for reclining and drinking water, tea, eating fruit, etc. that are nicely laid out for guests. There are massage therapists as well. Dinner was excellent and we were seated at a reserved table. We had a small starter and then served ourselves from the antipasti buffet (yum!), we ordered dinner, wine, and each course came with great service. Everyone at the hotel is pleasant and interested in your comfort. Our first morning we left the hotel and followed signs to a hiking trail - a great way to start the day. We returned, had breakfast and reclined in the sun for a bit. This is a really nice hotel that I would recommend to anyone visiting the Dolomites and Sud-Tirol.

Room Tip: We loved our patio room - open the door, see the beauty, recline in the afternoon sun - really nice!

We have just returned from another fabulous skiing holiday and our second stay at the Grien. We received a warm welcome from Rainer and Monica and renewed our acquaintance with Hassim, our friendly and speedly shuttle bus driver. The rooms were as we remembered them - a little bit dated, but exceptionally clean and comfortable. The spa facilities were very welcome after a hard day's skiing. Food, wine and service were, as ever, excellent - in fact we all commented that the quality of the cooking had, if anything, improved since our previous vist. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

We travelled to Ortisei for a short ski holiday. I picked the hotel from Tripadvisor.
The hotel is placed in an excellent position, high on the sunny side of the valley, with an excellent view both of the Village and of the Sasslong.
The personnel was kind and ready to help, the atmosphere friendly. We were assigned a Comfort room. The room was clean, however not the one that you would expect in a 4 start hotel: old-looking furniture, small analogue TV, uncomfortable beds.
We did not take advantage of the wellness centre, we were charged for playing billiard during one hour and for the internet connection.
The food was very good and with a good choice of different dishes.
We liked the hotel position and the people in general; we definitely did not like beds.
The hotel is not cheap for the kind of room we were given and we were surprised having been charged for few euros for the billiard and the internet connection.

This was my third time in Hotel Grien. Three things are really excellent: the wellness center, the food, that is like gourmet food and the general atmosphere and hospitality of the owners and all the personnel. Just two little things that could be improved: first, I would give free wi-fi internet, while now you have to pay for it; second, slipperies for the wellness are not free, you have to pay 3.5 euros. Just one comment more: we stayed there during a very low season period, if you can, this is always the best period: excellent service for cheap cost!!

What makes the Hotel Grien so good is that it is overlooking the town. The views are to die for! especially when you are eating your dinner. The hotel has a shuttle service so there is no problem getting to and from the town centre. The breakfasts and dinners are outstanding and the dinner in particular is quite an occassion. I would go back in a heart beat. I chose this hotel off the tripadvisor site and I am so glad I did.

The hotel is spotlessly run by the Avesani Family. We stayed in the "Suite Relax" which is separated from the main building (a 20-second walk) and hence very private and quiet. The spa facilities are really very good. The service is impeccable although a bit too formal for a family run hotel. The food is just perfect. A different set of choices every night, and a fantastic list of wines to go with it. I would encourage anyone to get some wine suggestions from Monika as she really seems to know the stuff. The location is a bit far from the town centre, but the hotel mini bus service was always at out disposal and we never had to wait for more than 5 minutes for it. In conclusion a great hotel that I would recommend to couples or families. RC - London

We couldn't rate this family-run hotel more highly. Everything was wonderful: the friendly staff, delicous food, stunning views, lovely decor and the fantastic spa/relaxation area in the basement. We were skiing and found the shuttle bus service brilliant for getting to the lifts. Some of our group who couldn't get into the Grien were staying nearby and we arranged for them to join us for dinner each night - and picked them up in the morning! The only criticism I could make is that the food was so good and plentiful that we ate far too much!! We definitely plan to return.
