We stayed at the Pension Vernel for 2 nights as part of a 5 day tour of the Dolomites in early June 2012 and had a truly wonderful experience. Ivan and Graziella are fantastic hosts and went well out of their way to make us feel welcome. We arrived very late on our first night having underestimated the time it would take us to drive through the mountains from Cortina and Ivan and Graziella stayed up till 11pm, waiting to make sure we arrived. All the local restaurants were shut at that time but they kindly prepared sandwiches for us in the room and declined payment later!
The room was large, warm, well furnished and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and newly refurbished. The (inclusive) breakfast was tasty and Ivan's dinners were very reasonably priced, good portion sizes and most importantly, delicious! The Wi-Fi internet connection was also very stable at a very modest fee.
On checking out, Ivan researched the best route for us to drive back to Venice and even printed a route map off the web for us.
We stayed in 8 different hotels during our 2 weeks in Italy and the Pension Vernel was not only the cheapest but easily the best of the lot!
