We were proup of 7 friends and ordered three rooms separately . A day before our arrival we all got an "upgrade email offer" : add for 5€/night.I called the hotel and they told me that the difference is only a balcony. when we booked (in booking.com) we didn`t see that kind of choice, two of us took the upgrade offer immediately, one of us refused.
Upon getting to the hotel we noticed all the rooms are equipped with balconies (circling the hotel building). Our friend who refused to the upgrade offer, upon check in , asked to compare the rooms personally , the clerks switched to Italian and then said that the room without balcony is not available and he gets the balcony upgrade for no extra charge.
It was very strange that all of our room got such an offer when the hotel was fully booked ( or almost ). when we did the checkout I asked to see room (any room) without a balcony, they refused to do that ( fully booked )....
We felt a bit uncomfortable with this and when discussed it with the manager their response was : “if you feel uncomfortable that your friend got free upgrade - it's your problem”.
I leave it to the readers to decide whose problem is it.
Do not lose the ski locker keys: the fine is 35 EUR.
Otherwise: We stayed at the hotel for five days. Its a nice clean hotel based a short (5 minutes) walk from the main gondola. The 'grani' prefix indicates it servers only breakfasts. Breakfast was the standard B&B european breakfast (few kinds of cheese, salamies, cakes, breads ). Most of the staff is welcoming and speaks English very well.
Each room gets a 7 hour WiFi password that works only in the lobby area. You can purchase unlimited 7 days WiFi password for additional 7€. Or 5 days for 5€.
As other said: Towels are made of bed sheets material. Bring your own towel. Other than that the beds are not more then “OK” , the room spacious and well equipped.
if you are in a hurry to eat dinner contact the nearby sela Ronda hotel and pay 15€ per “guest dinner” .they require couple of hours in advance order and its a basic dinner if you dont want to walk a lot.
