“Ideal informal ski hotel”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the San Nicolo with friends. The rooms are full of character, comfortable, tasteful, immaculately clean and ours was very spacious. Next to the ski lift and bus stop it makes an ideal location for the ski area of pozza di fassa. The breakfast room is worth getting up for, good food and a very pretty room. The bar is good fun and a great place to relax, the staff are all really friendly. There are plenty of options for eating out nearby. Looking forward to staying again next year.

2 adults staying and ended up in a 6 persons room top floor and at the back, so it was great. The well being room which has a jacuzzi, steam and sauna room is well maintained and free. The rooms are clean and spacious. The hosts are polite and friendly. The hotel is 100/200 yards from the ski lift.
To be fair, for the value it was an excellent hotel
The room for improvement would be
A large larger is €5 which is maybe 3/4 pint, most places are cheaper, we walked down to another hotel on the last day, sat on their terrace drinking the same brand in a pint glass at €4 and had much better decor
The menu is very simple and after day 2 ate else where
I emailed the hotel twice before coming and received no reply in reference to ski pass enquiries, on arriving the staff struggle with English, although the bar man and woman were quite good, which could be why they never replied
You will find après ski is from 5-7 and is busy and plays loud German folk music...a friend stayed on 1st floor and said he would not be happy if he was with a partner or with kids
Heating only works with the room key and in the evening. The rooms were generally warm enough, but between 2 of us, we struggled to dry our basic clothes on the radiators. We had the room stat at 30, I'll be surprised if the room reached 20.
Breakfast is dry white roll (local special) cheese, ham and local meat; cereals with UHT, boiled egg or small toast. It would be great to have sausage or other as a choice
I did wake one day and shower at 6.45am with no hot water, at 7.30 hot water was working?
TV has maybe 100 channels, 2 are English, BBC (France) and Russian News (by US news readers)
Bar was dead from 7pm onwards as was town :(
Tea/coffee facility in room

Summary - breakfast, dinner and bar, need improving. A small improvement toward English comprehension/entertainment.

Nothing to do with hotel, but local info for the traveller
Chrystal ski - don't believe their promo of the area, it's a very quiet village with NO night life entertainment past 7pm
buffaure lift 100 yards away, will take you to Alba - 1 hour ski with clear lifts, good for skiing not so good for boarders (me)
Catch a bus from outside the hotel €6 for the week, only checked by bus co once, to campitello and canazei, taking 20-45 mins respectively, but queuing for the lift can take 60 mins at least :(
Coming home the bus does not go up pozza, you have to walk at least to the main road or back to the hotel.
The Stelleronda ski orange is do'able for an average/good skier we did not try the green run
We (3) done the hidden valley ourselves and got there fairly easy, all be due to busses and queues did not start until after 10. However inc lunch only started our return at 3 due to queuing times, and was too far to clear the lifts closing time to get home...€140 taxi :(
If I returned to the region I would stay closer to the main runs or hire a car to get to the lift opening times 8am (buses 1st pick up is 8.07am plus 45 mins travel)
Town has no night entertainment :(

To Lorenzo and All his staff
Our group of 11 all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful and charming Hotel. From the moment we arrived we all felt your kind hospitality. The bedrooms (Junior Suites and Duplex family Rooms) were beautifully decorated, very very spacious, the bed linen was of great quality and the rooms were kept exceptionally clean. Your wellness Spa was fantastic (although the Jacuzzi was a little cold) but overall a great place to relax after a days skiing. The Apres Bar was busy and lively and served fabulous bar snacks. The Hotel was situated right next to the lift which was fantastic. Overall we could not fault anything especially Lorenzo's kind hospitality!!! We cannot wait to come again

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous and spacious, We had rooms of floors 2 and 3. Could not fault any of the fou...

We stayed the first week in January, couldn't believe how quiet the slopes were, fantastic. The spa is good but can get busy as quite small luck of the draw depending on what time you go, the breakfast is good. The bar is the only lively music après bar in the town and does pipe music out until about 7pm which you may hear from your room. The gondola lift is about 20 metres away, we hired equipment from edy sports opposite the hotel through snow brainier, excellent service, beyond excellent, we changed things and it was never a problem, they even shook our hands goodbye. There is a rental shop attached to the hotel but it didn't look very big. The food in the bar was good but you will want to venture further, there are lovely restaurants in most of the hotels so don't be afraid to explore them. They are not always really obvious.
The ski buses are a bit random, if you want to go to a bigger area get on the bus that says alba or penia to get to canazei or ski up and over using the buff aura lift and go down to alba the. Get the bus to canazei, will save you a long bus!
We had a corner room, it was amazing, more room than a non corner but all rooms look to be the same standard. We would go back as

Large rooms, comfort & clean, good and varied breakfast (more veg's, please...). Very helpful staff, though they speak only little English. A bit pricey but worths your money.Small but lovely wellness. Very close to Buffare ski area and to night ski (every Wednesday and Friday)

We stayed at one of junior suites, which is in fact very large room or a small appartement (without the kitchen). Staff was very helpful and friendly. Wellness area is small, but very nice and cosy. Hotel is located next to Buffare ski area, but still close to all other facilities in Pozza di Fassa.

Having stayed at the San Nicolo twice before, we were looking forward to our 3rd trip and it did not disappoint. The rooms are immaculate, with beautiful furniture, comfortable beds and are cosy and warm after a days skiing. The bathrooms are very clean and come complete with a large (ish) shower which is always piping hot. The rooms are plenty big enough to accommodate a couple or family. Lorenzo and his wife look after you very well along with the other staff. The relaxation steam room, sauna and jacuzzi are welcomed after a hard day on the slope, following by a large beer in the ground floor bar. The bombardinos are certainly worth a try!

The hotel is conveniently located next to the Buffaure ski lift which takes you up into the mountains in approximately 5 minutes. From here there is access to a wide range of slopes. Alternatively, catch the bus outside the hotel to go to Campitello which takes you into and onto the Sella Ronda, or Pera and Vigo for easier blue runs.

Pozzi is a quant town, with the centre approximately 10 minutes walk and there are plenty of pizza and pasta restaurants to choose from. The staff at the hotel recommended a restaurant in the mountain which was well worth the visit (it is on the main board by the reception desk). All of the food is either raised or grown in and around the restaurant, all organic and tasted unbelievably good. It was a real treat. They even pick you up and drop you off!

Can't wait to go back next year! Thanks Lorenzo, you were the perfect host!!
