“Perhaps great for school groups, but won't suit everyone.”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

My family spent a week at Hotel Renzi, Folgarida, and travelled with Ski Folgarida on an all-inclusive deal that appeared good-value. It was the first time we have skied in Italy. The hotel is just 150 metres from the ski lift, despite this, there is a daily shuttle minibus provided by the hotel to save you having to walk. The boot room is easy to get to and well-organised, though it is unheated.

The manager and small staff are very friendly, helpful and run a clean, tidy hotel. Hotel Renzi was built I guess in the '80's and probably hasn't changed much in that time, posh it is not.

One weak area is that the rooms are not well sound-insulated, so all noises from neighbouring shower rooms transmits straight through the walls. When you can hear your neighbour tearing off the toilet paper, you know there is a problem. There is very little the hotel can do about this, so if you are easily troubled by these things, perhaps find a different place to stay. The rooms are kept very clean and linen and towels changed regularly, ours benefitted from a view of the forest and mountains.

There is a lot of pop music played upstairs from the bar in the evenings for the entertainment of children, and strangely this formed the basis for the Hotel Renzi's brief welcome evening – along with small squares of cooked, frozen pizza and other cash and carry delights – I really did wish for a moment that I was 17 again and on a school ski trip.

The restaurant is somewhat canteen-like, but at half term it filled up as the evening went on and became quite lively. Romantic it is not. One family during the week we stayed left the restaurant on the first night and didn't return (okay, I could see their children were very picky), they chose to eat in the local Pizzeria (nice little place) instead.

Service was extremely speedy, it is a system that suits the management more than the guests, and probably ideal for dealing with large groups of schoolchildren.

Breakfasts were not awful, but the essential basics of decent fresh juice and proper coffee were missing – at Hotel Renzi self-service coffee machines and watery, sugary juice drink is deemed sufficient for its guests. There were plenty of plain-tasting croissants and nice bread rolls. Bring your own conserves or visit the supermarket if you like something other than the very cheapest jams. Some guests were making themselves lunch at breakfast time from the rolls, ham and cheese which will I suppose save a family a small fortune in mountain restaurant lunches.

A weak area I'm afraid is the kitchen. Meals were rather basic and sometimes disappointing. I suggest avoid the Breaded Hake, Salad Nicoise and Cold Veal with Tuna Sauce(!). Vegetables are provided buffet-style, but on unheated dishes so quickly are cold for anyone arriving after 7:30pm. Many of the pasta starters are substantial and tasty, the Cannelloni for example included wild mushrooms and was filling and delicious. Basic meat such as veal escalopes and pork chops are well-cooked and tender. There is the most basic of salad buffets (all nice and fresh) available most nights but vegetarians may struggle.

Ultimately whether the hotel Renzi might be good for your holiday will depend on your priorities and budget. If you are desperate to ski the Val di Sole ski area (and why wouldn't you be?), not a fussy eater and get a good deal, then it could be up your street. For my family: well, we had a great week's skiing and we certainly didn't starve. However, for us, on holidays we really do like to look forward to a slightly special evening meal and, for a week, to be made to feel a little bit special ourselves. For this reason we are not currently considering a return visit.

Room Tip: Reception, restaurant and bar are all at the top of the hotel, so choose a first floor room close to...
