As a fairly regular visitor to Passo Tonale I've have stayed at several of the hotels in the village. Previously we've gone on package holidays so the choice of hotel has been down to sticking a pin in a tour operator's brochure. This time though it was a self-arranged expedition and with the help of the local tourist office, we booked a week at the Albergo Angelo.
The hotel is located right in the centre of the village, a couple of hundred yards from the main lift pass office and slopes. We arrived quite late at night after a stressful drive up from Bergamo but the staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home with panini and a drop of wine.
The rooms were on a par with other hotels we've stayed at in ski resorts - not particularly large but very clean, well decorated and with lots of storage space. At the side of the hotel there's a separate room which is kept locked (you have to ask at reception for the key) where you can store your skis\board and boots.
As a non-meat eater, I've been left rather unimpressed by the offerings of some of Tonale's other hotels (pasta with tomato sauce every night for a week, as one example) but the menu at this hotel always had a couple of veggie options available. The quality of the food was also a pleasant surprise, especially the desserts!
We were there during the last full week of the ski season so the resort wasn't particularly busy. As a bonus though, we got free lift passes thrown in with the price of the hotel room. We tended to socialise away from the hotel in the evenings and dropped lucky by finding a couple of 'locals only' end of season parties.
Summing up - out of the 5 hotels I've stayed at in this resort, Albergo Angelo isn't the biggest or most expensive but overall, it's probably the best. I can't understand why more tour operators don't have it as a package option.
