We arrived in Campitello without a hotel reservation, and a very car sick child (After the drive from Bolzano in a Taxi). The tourist office was closed and the Hotel Alaska was practically next door and had 2 rooms available.
The owners were extremely helpful (It seems to be run by 2 young families) although they didn't speak a lot of English and we speak hardly any Italian they went out of their way to be of service. A happy family atmosphere was evident, the owners working incredibly hard in a multitude of jobs throughout the hotel, often with a baby on the hip. The other guests seemed to be mainly Italian families, with quite a few couples too. Our rooms, a triple and a double were spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean, they overlooked the main road and over to the nursery slopes, with beautiful Dolomite vistas.
One room had a bath and the other had a shower, so i would state your preference if booking. We had half board, and the dining room was comfortable . At dinner they had a sort of salad/vegetable buffet to start, this was very impressive with a huge range of vegetables beautifully cooked presented and a great way to get the family to eat their veg, then another 3 courses, almost always too much to eat, and we ended up usually skipping a course. The food was a very high quality although i was puzzled that Veal was on the menu evey night, and when i enquired why that was, i was told it was a regional speciality, fair enough. Breakfast was also good with a nice buffet with fresh fruit, and Eggs cooked to order. The hotel had an exceptionally clean and pleasant swimming pool, sauna and steam room, it was bright and well maintained, with a happy family atmosphere. The hotel bar was pleasant, but not well used,The ski room was large, with lots of room to sit down, boot warmers and always clean. We are always quite fussy about location with a ski hotel, not being fans of trudging long distances in ski boots first thing in the morning, or relying on hotel ski buses with variable success. The ski bus stop was less than 100m from the hotel and quite reliable and frequent. The town centre was about 100m away. Also, the nursery slopes and childrens ski school were 2-3 minutes walk away. They did not accept credit cards, they may well have told us this on check in,but we had not understood, luckily it was not too much of a problem, but i think they should have made it clearer, as it could have been a huge problem. We thought this hotel was fantastic value, much better facilities than some 4 star hotels we had stayed in (It is 3 star) and would highly recommend it.
