This is a hotel that one senses once offered its guests a bit more. There is evidence that it used to offer restaurant meals, but this was not the case when we were there. The grand entrance area has lots of space to sit down, but few people doing that: because there was no bar to speak of. The building is very clean and well maintained, but the services stripped back to the extent that it's basically now a self catering place.

With that in mind, the Sporting is really well located and offers something that very few properties in San Martino do: a pool. There is some free parking (it gets full quickly though, mainly with weekly residents who bag a spot then leave their car for the week). There is a garage somewhere (I think it's accessed from another street) but we didn't use it, and I believe it's about €10 a day.

Breakfast buffet is €8/day (€4 for young children) and is the usual Italian affair of sweet treats, cereal, Nutella, toast, croissants, ham, cheese, bacon and eggs. And nice cappuccino. The breakfast steward is very friendly and accommodating.

The pool area is small but clean. We didn't use the hammam area as our kids couldn't use it (over 15s only). The pool is nice and warm with about a dozen loungers around it. The pool is open briefly in the morning (10-12) then again in the afternoon (4ish - 9ish I think).

There's a kids club. The play room is locked outside of the kids club hours (4.30-7, 8-9.30 from memory). There's a kids club leader who supervises kids left in the play room. The play room itself is well stocked, has a small indoor play frame and parents often stayed to play with their young kids. For older kids there's also a room (open all the time I think) with arcade machines, pinball and table tennis.

The room we had (a bilocale, or self catering flat with separate bedroom) was compact but we'll laid out. It has a tiny kitchenette (2 plate hob, microwave, fridge, sink) and has most things you need to prepare meals. No oven, toaster or kettle , though. Most rooms seemed to have balconies. The view at the back is uninspiring, looking onto an apartment block in a state of semi disrepair. The best rooms are likely those at the front. The room has a TV with a small selection of terrestrial digital channels. It was clean, and functional but not luxurious.

There's a small communal launderette and a couple of ski rooms, which we didn't use.

I can recommend this place given its location and the price, but ultimately you do get what you pay for and for a hotel experience that goes beyond the functional you may wish to look elsewhere. For self catering families on a budget this could be just the place.

Currently staying in a Sporting Club inSan Martino di Castrozzo.
Upon arival saw a 8,5 trip advisor rating on reception. Thought: o' that's good..
But then...

First bad surprise:
Charged 60 eur more on the reception although all costs were confirmed and payed for through booking on Mountvacation.com
The web service acnoledged the overcharge by the hotel management and agreed to refund the money, though.
Staff - not very cheerful with a poor english language skills (which they say is common for italy)

General impression of the facility - not so cheerful.
Looks like an old hotel which might be a bit cleaner.
But then i saw the cleaning lady and it all became clear to me.

We are staying in a studio apartment so it is expected that the room is small. The kitchen is small and equiped with cheap apliances.
Bathroom is ok size but the shower plate is cracked and quickly fixed with silicon which does not look good.

The parking spot in front of the hotel is barely cleaned from snow and parking is limited. When you take your stuff from the car to the entrance you have to climb oved the old snow boulders.

The hotel offers a ski depot for ski equipment.
Metal cabinets ate suitable for storing 2-3 sets of ski and 2 pairs of boots. But the area is extremely small and when more people get in at the same time it's virtually impossible to get in or out.

Beautiful place for skiing or for walking. Nice apartment with view on mountains. Good for family with small children. There is also small swiming pool in the hotel. Include also towels, bathrobes and basic equipment in the kitchen. We like it too much.

Positives: Very friendly staff, efficient check-in, well equipped room with small kitchenette and good storage. Spotlessly clean. Hotel also has spa, swimming pool and an excellent kids clubs with entertainment. 250m walk to the centre of town and the restaurants and cafes and ski bus. Separate room in hotel for skis and boots and lockers. All rooms were well heated. Fantastic views from the terrace.

Negatives: Breakfast was a little expensive for 8 euros per person. Could do with a larger option from cold food (cornflakes, bread and ham) - perhaps to introduce some hot food. The beds are a little hard and the room walls are a little thin. It is no exaggeration to say we heard shoelaces hitting the floor - take ear plugs if noise disturbs you. However, we never heard any noise past 930pm and slept well.

Although a bit dated, the facility has obviously been well kept, and the spa area recently rebuilt. It is located in the center of the town, with a ski bus stop some 50m away. We had a junior suite, which was relatively small but space efficient. Everything worked fine, save for the main fuse which blew a couple of times, but Guido from the reception desk was at hand to help. Saying this, the reception and spa crews were generally extremely hospitable and spoke good English, which is not always the case in Italy. The room was fitted with an old-fashioned manual thermostat and we could regulate the temperature to our liking - thank God, no fancy 23rd century energy saving equipment that leaves you freezing most of the day. I am saying this because in certain other, much fancier establishments we all got ill because the keepers were of a view that from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. guests are supposed to be in bed and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. skiing, and that the heating was therefore superfluous. The ski room lockers are spacious enough, ventilated and well heated. A warm recommendation!
