“Great food but no internet signal in the room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

The hotel is a strange mix. The service and food were excellent. The staff were friendly and very helpful and, as we had an early start, breakfast was served especially early for us. However, the rooms are tired and really weren't cleaned properly. There were hairs all over the bathroom. Perhaps a new cleaner is required (or new glasses for the existing one)?

The sauna was good (and free). Towels and dressing gowns were provided. It puzzled me that there was a hairdryer above the loungers by the sauna but later, when I searched for one in my room to no avail, I wished I had showered downstairs. The hotel provides shower gel/shampoo in a dispenser.

The spa shuts at 18.30 which seemed a little early for people who like to be able to enjoy a full day in the mountains and then a bit of apres ski before returning to the hotel.

There was no wifi signal in our room, only in the bar and restaurant areas. Luckily, we were there on a Saturday night so email/internet access wasn't too important but given that we had stayed in mountain refuges with faultless internet access during the week, it was strange that this hotel couldn't manage to extend the signal a few metres.

I didn't sleep well owing to a stupidly hard and large pillow which gave me a crick in my neck! I awoke at 2am because of this and could hear the boom boom of music from the party below. I found it hard to get back to sleep. They were still partying at 5am.

The hotel did not benefit from the late afternoon sun. We would have been better staying up on the slopes for this.

I would definitely return here for dinner, as the food and the service were superb, bit I don't think I would stay overnight in this hotel again.

A sixth visit to Bulla in seven years and everything was as good as it always is. Great friendly service from Leopold and his team, good food (the prosciutto in crosto on Thursday was a highlight) and as a bonus some of the best snow conditions any of us could recollect.
Definitely hoping to return in 2015.

Room Tip: It's a pain lugging suitcases up to the higher floors.

We spent a week in Val Gardena hiking and decided on the Sporthotel Platz as our base. The hotel is in the small village of Bulla/Pufels, high on the hill above Ortisei. It was a great choice, as the main villages on the valley floor were extremely crowded with vacationers, since it was the week of Ferragosto. The hotel is run by two brothers (Andreas and Leo) who have taken the family farm and transformed it into a well run hotel. They are extremely gracious hosts, even putting on a great ferragosto party, with a table full of tapas and a wine punch. The staff was very friendly. The hotel itself is modest, our room was small and the food was average (except the Friday fish evening, where the chef produced a wonderful menu with fish stew, clam linguini and grilled salmon). It was great value for money. By the way, the hiking in Val Gardena is spectacular.

Unfortunately Bulla is somewhat remote with regard to main town activities and access to the ski slopes. That said the tiny village setting is picture postcard quality. My biggest disappointment was the lack of wi-fi in the rooms as I needed to do some business while on vacation. The food was plentiful but no more than average; rather than have 5 courses that were OK I would prefer 3 of better quality. The atmosphere in the bar was friendly and lively in the evening. The price was very good all things considered.

This is a superb hotel in a lovely out of the way location - but only a short bus ride from the main town.
Fantastic views and brilliant food.
The five course dinner every night was really top quality and loved by all my family.
All the staff are lovely and are always trying to make your stay a special one.
On one evening guests and staff had a musical night that was really good - with a fire specially made for us on the veranda with views over the mountains.
The walk up to the Seiser Alm is unforgettable.

Room Tip: Just ask the staff

Fabulous, traditional hotel in Heidi type setting. Leopold and all his staff work effortlessly to ensure a tremendous time had by all. Food is amazing with wonderful 5 course dinner. Breakfast like a king with so many choices. All this plus the sauna and pool (big enough to swim in). Easy access to slopes by car or ski bus in winter. BeautIful surroundings in summer with outdoor pool and terrace to relax on. Impromptu sing songs with Leopold on accordion sometimes accompanied by ski instructor brother Andreas! Tobogganing trips and numerous other ideas to make this an unforgettable trip regardless of age.Rooms are traditional and some may say in need of a touch up. However I found my room/bed very cosy with a wonderful balcony view. Hot water in the shower and everything I needed. You would pay a lot more for this just 5 minutes down the mountain! Very easy access from Innsbruck (1hour 20 minutes) or Verona/Trevisso/Bergamo (take in Lake Garda, Bolzano and the wine trail of Kaltern). You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Ensure you have a balcony with a view down the valley or across to church.

Went as part of the same party as Westendee (review below). Happy to endorse all comments there. I love the hotel - Leo and his staff are incerdibly friendly and attentive and whilst the hotel is fairly simply furnished it's kept impeccably clean.The food was a bit more varied than it has been in previous visits - some very good pasta dishes. I definitely hope to return in 2014.
