“Wonderful stay at Hotel Natale in Cortina”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

My brother and I stayed one week at Hotel Natale in mid-June 2014.
The hotel is very nice, a beautiful Tyrolean style building.
The breakfast was good and varied enough to give us "fuel" for the, rather long (in our view) hikes we did.
Our room was spacious and clean, and we even had two balconies, with fantastic views to the mountains.
We felt at home (wish I had a house like that !), also thanks to the kindness from Stefano, the hotel manager, who gave us many suggestions for one day hiking trips, and was completely up to date on which hiking trails were enough free from snow at this rather early time of the hiking season.
Stefano also suggested some restaurants, out of which we fell for the nearby "La Tavernetta", where we had dinner five times, despite many other restaurants (and hotels) starting opening for the season during our stay.
The atmosphere in "La Tavernetta" was friendly and relaxed and the people there gave us an excellent and very personal service on top of the characteristic, very delicious and yet fair-priced dishes.
For our next stay in Cortina we would choose Hotel Natale (and La Tavernetta) again :-)

We had a wonderful stay in Cortina. The hotel was exactly what we wanted-beautiful building, clean & comfortable room with a great view. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from restaurants and bars, with easy access to a biking trail. What made the stay outstanding for us was the friendliness and helpfulness of Stefano (front office)-he was probably the most helpful person in any hotel we've stayed in, providing great local knowledge of hikes and bike trails, which really made the difference to our time in Cortina. We'll definitely visit again!

Hotel Natale provided the perfect rest point on our trip through the Dolomites. It is the nicest-looking chalet in the street. It is a small hotel, neat, clean and very well maintained. The choice of foods for breakfast was varied and delicious; the breakfast room is very pleasant. Stefano, the hotel manager, made us feel welcome and was very helpful; he is also a very good knowledge of the roads around the area. He provided options for the most scenic drives to get to our next destination, and we are glad we followed his advice - stunning views.

The hotel is close to good restaurants, and a short walk to the pedestrian-only centre of town.

We stopped in for a couple of days in early June, just prior to when Cortina gets rolling for the summer. Warning, at least half of the town is closed, their summer season seems to be July, August. That said, the hotel was very nice ( say hi to Harley, the bull dog) staff are friendly. Bike rental in town is inexpensive and local trials are beautiful, breath taking scenery is everywhere you look.

The spontaneous decision to ski in Cortina d'Ampezzo for 3 days was taken due to the proximity of the place to the Venice airport (frankly speaking this was not the best ski area I've ever seen). One of the main reason to book Hotel Natale was its high rating here on Tripadvisor. The hotel was good - this is a rather small establishment, 3 floors with 4-5 rooms on the floors, rooms are with balkonies, private parking lots made it possible to find the parking place every time we needed. Normal breakfast, ski room, sauna - everything that is concerned to be in the ski hotel is in place. The only thing that I did not like was the shower - in order to take the shower you need to step in the tiny bath-tub, close the shower curtain (that consists of the 3 plastic parts) and take the shower using the shortest hose I've ever seen.
There is a ski bus stop across the street, and the ski bus can take you to the two main lifts in Cortina, but what I would recommend is to get to some the upper lifts directly by car (the Cinque Torre slopes are the best).
Stephano - guy at the reception - was extremely helpful in arranging the whole stay in Cortina. If you are staying in Natale and he is at work, don't hesitate to ask any questions, you won't be disappointed.

Spent a week at the Natale for a ski trip with a friend in mid-March; the entire experience was perfect from the time we checked in to the time we checked out; what made it special was the intimate experience Natale offers due to its small size and personalized service offered by its proprietor manager Stefano; when we arrived our room with specially requested twin beds was ready; Stefano was anticipating our arrival greeting us by name and had everything all set up for us so there was no need for additional paperwork; within literally two minutes we had our room keys, tips on where to ski, where to rent equipment (across the street) and where to eat (Ariston and Al Camin on Stefano's map/list are great and offer a 10% discount to Natale guests); any requests we had such as an adapter for the wall socket, key for the in room safe and additional pillows were immediately attended to; throughout the week Stefano was available to offer advice or just for a chat; the hotel itself reflects traditional alpine architecture with extensive hand crafted wood work and paneling throughout the interior of the hotel and guest rooms which makes it warm and unique; we stayed in room # 106 a Superior room which opened onto an extensive patio with great views of the mountains and had plenty of storage space; the room has a small separate entry foyer which is convenient to store your ski outerwear and a spacious modern bathroom; we were on the same floor as the reception to had great access to the common lounge with comfortable sofas; breakfast was served a flight of stairs down from our room in the taverna; the selection at breakfast was not super extensive but still offered plenty of variety with good quality offerings so that we were still looking forward to it after a week; the fresh selection of coffees made to order served as the icing on top; we found the location of Natale extremely convenient a short 5 minute walk to the center of town where we could access plenty of restaurants, shops, grocery store, pharmacy etc.; we had rented a car to access the ski areas around Cortina but rarely used it while in town; we had no problem parking at Natale; there is a equipment storage area on the outside of the hotel around the corner from the front door and a ski bus stop right across the street; if you a looking for a clean, convenient, intimate hotel with an unmatched level of personal service then Natale is the place for you; Stefano thanks for being a great host, we will definitely look forward to staying with you next time we are in Cortina FS & AV

We stayed in the hotel Natale in Cortina from February 15th thru 23rd. Overall, we liked our stay in the hotel. Here are our obervations:
- Excellent, friendly and helpful staff. Stefano, the hotel manager, was extremely helpful in suggesting us good dinner spots at Cortina and making reservations for us. All his suggestions were topnotch.
- Very good maintainance of hotel facilities.
- Large, well-appointed rooms, with good view of Dolomiti mountains.
- Comfortable mattress, good sleep.
- Excellent location - close to the city center and ski bus stop.
A few minor suggestions to the hotel is to make breakfast a bit more varied, and upgrade the hotel lobby by making it somewhat larger and installing a fireplace. Otherwise, excellent value for money.

Room Tip: If you come to Cortina by car, make sure you rent the chains.
