Alpenroyal Grand Hotel - Gourmet & Spa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 May 2009

This year in April i have been skiing in the Dolomites mountains in the italian Alps and i found this hotel Alpenroyal in the LHW directory. I visited it`s website wich looks lovely and after that, i decided to book.
It has been a great experience. I arrived at night and did not see much about the place but the day after when i woke up i felt to me in a paradise. From the room ( wich was a very spacious room ) i had a view to a massif mountain chain called Gruppo del Sella. It has just snowed a couple of days before and so the location present itself in a unic shape.
The Alpenroyal Grand Hotel is a cozy mountain hotel with typical wood furniture and offers many different services as gourmet restaurant, spa and many different in and out door wellness facilities. Everything is runned as LHW international standards ( i am a frequent LHW guest ) require.
Staff is very helpfull and i passed with my family a lovely week in a ski resort with 1200 km of slopes ( really unic in the world ). I will definitely return to Selva Val Gardena and to the Alpenroyal Grand Hotel wich will not loos as so quickly as loyal guest.

I've been skiing in Selva for almost 40 years, with my family when i was young, with friends later on and with my wife now, and i've been in many hotels, garni and apartments in Selva: Alpenroyal is the best in my opinion, expecially during winter season.
I've seen some reviews on this site complaining of not being a 5 star hotel, i think that is related of what are you looking for: 1000 room, 5 star hotel you can find in NY city, are light years away from what you can find at Alpenroyal.
Owner (not the manager...) will take care of guest needs in this small and charming hotel, giving advice and taking you directly on slopes with the private hotel shuttle (and picking you up, no matter where you stop, when you finish skiing!).
Suites are very spacious, with separate WC and bathroom (almost all with Jacuzzi), food excellent (with an interesting wine cellar) and service is very friendly.
Pools (in particular outdoor ones with a spectacular view on Gruppo Sella, Sassolungo and Alpe di Siusi) and wellness offers you whatever you want to relax and enjoy you after-skiing days

After making the reservation and before getting there I had a look at the reviews on this site. While most are favourable, a few complained about this not being a 5 star, but a 4 star hotel. Having travelled all around the world, staying in Leading, Four Seasons, Relais&Chateaus hotels etc., I believe I have a rather good idea of what to expect from a 5 star hotel.
The Alpenroyal is by no means a 500 room mega 5 star hotel that one may find in big cities. On the contrary, it is very small (I believe around 50 rooms), yet with great attention to detail and very attentive management. In fact, it has not happened to me in many 5 star hotels to have the owner (not the manager!) staying around to meet the guests and giving valuable advice on the surroundings. When Hannes (the owner) suggested a spot for an excursion, it was not because of some veiled interest as happens usually with a standard concierge, but because he was sending us sincerely to a great experience.
So, to sum it up, this is no ordinary 5 star hotel, thanks to the cozy ambience, and calling it a 4 star experience is simply wrong.
I will not go in depth on the rest, many reviewers have it spot on. I will simply say that the pools are great and the cuisine is top notch.

I have been to several hotels in the "Dolomiti" and I can definitely say that Alpenroyal has been so far the best.
The location is great, I'd recommend booking a Saslong suite for the best views and tranquillity. Although in general all accommodation in Val Gardena is good standard, this hotel is a real 5 star, with all the luxury and most of all the quality service that a top hotel should have. Apart from the great outdoor heated pool, the two saunas, the turkish bath and all the amenties, what we really enjoyed was the effort that the owners put into keeping the service at top-level all the time. Hannes, the owner takes personal care of many details and after my trip he confessed me in an e-mail that he checks Tripadvisor to learn about his clients' remarks and he feels genuinely sorry if he finds out (rarely I'd say) that something went wrong... This is passion for hospitality and you can feel it in the way the place is kept and run. Last but not least the kitchen, which is a real delight: every buffet breakfast is a feast and every dinner is a surprise for the sheer quality and presentation of the food worth of a starred Michelin restaurant. We will definitely be back and blindly recommend it.

This hotel is a nice 4* hotel but if you have stayed in a 5* hotel in US/UK/Australia you will be disappointed if you booked this hotel that is, as advertised, a 5 * hotel.

But
- it is a nice hotel and probably the best in the town
- the town is beautful
- very friendly staff

There is great food to be found in this town and very good value
