Piccolo Hotel Sciliar
Ranked #20 of 25 Hotels in Alpe di Siusi
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Good value. Nice european family atmosphere. I got the impression that people come to this all-inclusive hotel year after year. There were several older generation people, and a few people with families. They cater to the italian-speakers, not german and certainly not english. I didn't hear any other english at Piccolo. My italian language skills are sub-par, but they tried their best to communicate in english, for which we were thankful. Ambiance was quiet, subdued, not loud.

We had a nice west-facing view, with cowbells gently dinging in the summer night. Easy walk from the tram, and many guests seemed to drive up. Dogs seem to be welcome.

Meals were simple, hearty european fare, not fancy, but welcome after hiking a long day, or before setting out for a nice day. Dinner/adult beverages cost extra, will be added to your bill.

They had to do some digging to provide wifi code, since typically you have to enter an italian phone number to surf. But you're not up there to surf, so forgive the spotty service, put down your device, and start hiking!

Overall, we'd recommend Piccolo Hotel Sciliar for a good value up in Dolomiti country.

Room Tip: west side seems to have more of a view, since it's on the west side of Compatsch village. East s...

We arrived at the end of August and were in the area to do three days of day hikes in the Alpe di Siusi area. My review is based on being in the area in summer as conditions and bus connections may be different in other seasons. The hotel is located in Compatsch, Italy among of group of other hotels at the upper end of the cable car cableway that runs up from Siusi. There are numerous well-signed trails leading out from Compatsch. There is also a frequent bus to Saltria at the far end of Alpe di Siusi from Compatsch and also bus service to Castelrotto down near the lower terminus of the cable cars. We were traveling without a car and had no problem walking to the hotel that was a 5-minute walk from the cable car station. Since neither of us spoke Italian or German an apprehension of our stay at the hotel was how well we could communicate with the staff that mainly do not speak English. We booked about 4 months in advance by email. To make the reservations I used the “Google Translate” service on the web to use the correct wording to send my reservation request in Italian and to translate the response. When we arrived at the hotel, check-in went well using some rehearsed Italian and we were asked to select our entrees for dinner (from a choice of three) and dessert since the hotel was providing our breakfast and dinner. It was a little confusing choosing since we did not recognize the choices, which were only listed in Italian, and German but we were able to make a choice. Each day we were given new selections to choose from. Our room was very nice; good sized with fair sized bath and small shower, adequate closet space, TV and free wifi. It had a very nice closed balcony sitting area with a view of the Sciliar peaks. It was very quiet, partly because cars are generally banned from Compatsch except for arriving and departing. We were assigned a 7:30 seating for dinner in the hotel restaurant. Dinner was served in courses with buffet for salad and vegetable/potato dishes. Wine, beer and bottled water were available for extra charge. Overall the food was very good. Breakfast was buffet style with various styles of coffee from a machine and choices of cereals, fruits, breads, eggs and bacon, all quite good. The room was cleaned daily. Overall it was a good choice of hotel for us and excellent value. We would stay there again.
