After years being on the waitinglist we could finally stay at this great hotel.
We went with the complete Family and stayed for a week.
We were lucky with the wheater and the rest of the fantastic week was due to the Hotel, the staff and the food.
We have booked for coming years.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled with family

Since the beginning of th 90´s Armentarola has been our annual "ski home". Does it not tell all about it? Who would return year after year if it would not have been worth it? When you are there there is no need to look for more. The hotel itself is classy in a homey way just as it should after more than 70 years. The personnel professional in every way, some of them even more! There seems to be no limit for what they do for your well being. And the food! Superb! This is no sporadic success. The high level we have enjoyed there has lasted for a quarter of a century!

This hotel is filled with so much style and class the decor is so stylish filled with beautiful furniture and ornaments. Your room looks out over the Dolomites which is awesome. The staff are excellent and attend to your every needs. The food is absolutely first class silver service. Dinner is a 4 course meal, a different menu every evening, but allows you to ask for something else if you so please. Apparently the Steak Tartare is a must to ask for. The choice of wine is very good. After a hard days skiing you get to sit on the deck on a warm sheep skin with a blanket over your knees whist a waiter serves you your beverage of choice while you take in the amazing view. Very hard to handle this place a definite must go to and a definite to be back to. The only thing I would like to have had in my room would have been a tea making facility other than that A1

A very cozy hotel in the beautiful town of San Cassiano, Alta Badia. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Great views, cows nearby, a very peaceful place. The food was outstanding. The breakfast buffet is first class. The staff is gracious and friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer.

My husband and I make a point of staying in unique locations, either for the history they contain, the decoration, or the level of luxury. Armentarola did not disappoint in any way, in fact, I think it may be the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. It is hard to know where to start in reviewing such an excellent hotel...

1) The best element is probably the service, provided by long-term personnel whose style is professional and non-invasive.
2) The decoration of the hotel is very interesting in that it combines modern touches with local traditional elements like wood. Many hotels in the area play up the rather campy local style (red checkers and reindeers) whereas I found this decor to be precise but very relaxing. The many public spaces give you plenty of options of where to hang around should you not want to stay in your room, which is a tough choice given how nice the rooms are.
3) The food at the hotel restaurant was excellent, we never felt the need to eat elsewhere. They are very accommodating of vegetarianism, food allergies or those who need gluten free foods. Breakfast was particularly spectacular and I wish I had had more hours to partake in it, but unfortunately had to go out skiing.
4) The location is right on the ski slope, something you can't quite tell from the website. There's a pomo-lift just a few meters out the back of the hotel that joins to a larger trail to access the main ski lifts of San Cassiano. The ski resort is Alta Badia which has mostly intermediate terrain, well groomed. We have stayed at other hotels in other parts of this ski complex and found the location at Armentarola to be the most comfortable yet.

We certainly hope to return to Armentarola in the future. I think this hotel is perfect for a romantic couples getaway but also for families, given the many services. We were younger than many of the regular customers here, but I would absolutely suggest it for a special family trip even for a young couple with kids if it fits your budget.

Wonderful setting overlooking the Dolomites in a comfy ski in/out location of unique Badia Valley. Typical South Tyrolean rooms and service (Italian hospitality and Germanic efficiency in service). Very nice SPA and pool. Restaurant is to dye for. A must if you want to experience a truly memorable skiing vacation in the Dolomites!
