I spent two weeks in Dolomites Inn with a sizeable group of friends (families with young children) in February 2011. I have mixed feelings. Here are my major observations:
First of all – Dolomites Inn is not in Canazei as such, but in Penia di Canazei, a small village probably about 5km from Canazei downtown. The place is very peaceful, but the opportunities to go out in the evening are limited. From skier perspective the location of the hotel isn’t perfect – the distance to the ski-bus is probably something like 500 meters. On the other hand the ski-bus system works nice – regular and frequent service from 8am to 7pm. By car you can reach Ciampac and Belvedere Ski-Arenas within 10 minutes.
Very clean, average size and standard equipment. No complaints about it.
3. Restaurant and bar
The breakfast selection is quite limited and has practically not changed during our whole 2 weeks stay. No warm food apart from boiled eggs. For me not enough ahead of a full-skiing day.
Dinners were sometimes quite good (especially the local food evening) but sometimes below average. Repeatable – if you are not a great fan of veal (served almost every night) you might be disappointed.
Bar is a strong side of the hotel. Spacious and nicely finished, with an impressive selection of single malt whiskies, is a place to spend an evening.
4. Customer service
The weakest side of the stay is the customer approach by the owners (especially Robert). Unfortunately, he sometimes gives an impression of a rude arrogant guy who hates his guests. Especially the children are not warmly welcomed. We had some good moments with Robert (a few evenings in the bar) but general impression during a stay was – the sooner we leave the happier the owners will be.
Brief conclusion of Dolomites Inn from my side: slightly below average. Next time in Val di Fassa I will try a different place.
