Our family of two adults and two teenagers returned yesterday from an excellent week-long stay at the Flora Alpina.
Our overwhelming impression was of a welcoming 3-star hotel whose matriach takes great pride in providing her guests with a comfortable stay. After a full day on the slopes the cheery smiles and personal touches at dinner ensured our time at the Flora Alpina was memorable.
Location: it is all of 20 to the grocery store, 50 paces to the lift and another minute to ski school, yet our rooms at the back of the hotel were wonderfully quiet.
Rooms: clean and equipped just as one would expect for a 3-star hotel. The kids commented on the shower being much more powerful than most hotels and I particularly liked the firm mattress that avoided me waking up with my usual third-day of skiing backache.
Food: hearty breakfast, albeit without a cooked meal. Admittedly it is almost the same every day. For us that was a positive as we didn't wish to be making choices at that time of day.
Dinner: every evening we chose from 3 options for the starter and main course for the following evening's dinner. The starters were invariably tasty, while the mains were good (with the singular exception of the veal one evening). On the night there would be a choice between a fruit based dessert and a more sugary one. Our teenagers were highly satisfied by the choices and quantity of the food.
Ski and boot room: a very convenient location under the hotel and accessed from just off the town square. Unlike some French and Austrian hotels the boot room wasn't heated to such a high temperature that the boots were toasty, but they were dry the following day.
Passo Tonale: an affordable resort for those who are at the "gentle reds" stage. Nice snow park!
We fed our family of four on EUR 40 for each lunch on the mountain: good pasta, fresh pizza or sausage and chips plus water or hot chocolate each.
Great gelato to be had just past the Spar.
Top tip: only one of the mountain restaurants accepts credit cards.
