Our second ski trip to Ortisei.
Last time we stayed at Luna Mondshein which was just ok and probably deserved 4* but did not bear any delight.
Genziana is very much different. Having tried to find a single minus I failed.
Location - could not be better, in the very center of the town and within walking distance to local ski lifts - Alpe de Suizi (for beginners/intermediate) is 300 m away, Seceda elevator (for more experienced skiers though) is right over the corner.
Rooms - clean and spacious.
Food - superb, both breakfast and dinner. Wine choice - everything one could imagine from decent quality 15-20 euro/bottle for aficionados to Petrus, Sasicaia and Vega Secilia for high rollers.
Probably the best ski hotel I have been to.
