We have just returned from 10 days in Selva and spent our first week at Hotel Laurin with Gregor and Astrid. This hotel is what made our holiday so very memorable. Gregor and Astrid have made such a wonderful atmosphere in their hotel which is what makes it so very special and a place you want to return to again and again. After talking with many of the other guests this is exactly what people do! One family has been returning to Hotel Laurin for 30 years and now I know why! The staff could not be more helpful and friendly. We travelled with our 18 month old, 3 and a half year old, 15 and 18 year old. The hotel is small enough that we had the baby monitor and could take it to dinner or Gregor would look after it at reception and update us if there was any noise coming from the room. The food was exceptional! There was not one meal I was disappointed in. The bar in the evenings was a great place to unwind after a long day skiing and had a warm inviting atmosphere. Our little ones loved the little play room and bought toys in from there to the dining room every morning and night to play with. All the staff were fabulous with our smaller children which was lovely, they were made to feel very welcome as well. Our cappucinos were bought to our breakfast table before we had even asked for them each morning. Elena, our waitress each night, was so lovely and attentive. The internet was fast and worked well in the lobby/bar area. It was a nice end to our day to check our email, download photos from the day and update fb and enjoy a beer in the bar each afternoon. Our room had a fabulous view of the Ciaminoi and up the mountain. It accommodated us and our two smaller children perfectly with a separate little bedroom with a single bed and cot. The bathroom was absolutely spotless and obviously newly renovated with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The room itself was not one of the newer renovated suites but still perfectly comfortable. The wellness area is amazing. Very quiet and atmospheric, a great place to unwind and relax. As far as position, I think it is the best in Selva! Right next to the Ciampinoi or you can walk up the stairs and cross the footbridge to catch the chairlift then ski down to Risaccia or the nursery slopes from there. We used the Ski School of Selva which was across the road and has a mini bus which transports you to the nursery slopes (which are not far at all, just up hill) for our 3 and a half year old. I walked our 18 month old to Mini Club each morning which was probably about a 10 min walk. Our 3 yr old was in full day ski school from 10am - 4pm and our 18 month old in Mini Club from 9am til 4pm so we got at least 5 hours skiing in each day - perfect! All in all, I cannot fault this hotel and can only congratulate Astrid and Gregor on a job well done on creating a wonderful friendly atmospheric hotel. We will definitely come back to enjoy their hospitality again... hopefully sooner than later! Thank you!!
