“Ski the Dolomites”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

THe scenery is excellant this year the snow is very good and to stay in the Oswald hotel in Selva the icing on the cake. I have had over the years 50 weeks of sking in all sorts of accomodation and not one has reached the high standards set by the Oswald. Excellant food good accomodation and friendly staff. Only downside it is not a ski out ski back location but a free mini bus gets you to the lift each day runs until 1030. The ski back this year was to within 100m either front or back via sepertate routes. A very enjoyable break I would not hessitate to return

We returned for a second visit to the Oswald for a skiiing week with friends, booked through a ski company. Once again we had a great stay here. The hotel is well positioned in the town of Selva with bus stops right outside on both sides of the road. There is a hotel shuttle bus to take you to two of the local lifts. You can ski to within a very short walk of the hotel too.
The boot room has been renovated since last winter. Now it has wonderful warming pegs for your ski boots, numbered for your room. What bliss that the boots then slip on so easily! Also racks for holding 2 pairs of skis plus poles - so much easier to find them in the morning.
The rooms are big, comfortable and quiet. Bath robes & slippers provided and are excellent for using the spa facilities. European style spa - i.e. no cozzies in sauna but OK for jacuzzi!
The food is very good - a great breakfast selection and a 4 course evening meal, portions just right (not too big!) plus salad buffet bar.
As everyone else has said the staff are the jewels in the crown of The Oswald from the owner right down to the chambermaids. Everyone so helpful, friendly and welcoming. Difficult to pick out anyone but Timio in the bar remembered us from last year!

Stayed one week , as part of a 3 week ski adventure in Italy/Austria. Found the hotel by accident , but a very happy accident. Good sized rooms , very well appointed and meticulously cleaned. Food at breakfast & dinner was high quality with plenty of choice. However , the highlight for us was the care & attention of ALL staff. We were recognised and greeted on all occasions & any assistance we required was given graciously. My wife & I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary during our stay. The hotel put on a lovely dinner for us , which was not expected but really appreciated. Perfect location within the town of Selva, with only a short shuttle trip to the ski lifts. It would be very hard to stay anywhere else when we return to Selva.

Hotel Oswald is very well located to provide gate to the Sella Ronda skiing experience, has very nice, typical italian and rather spacious rooms, very friendly staff from reception, thru restaurant, bar and driver which takes you to the nearest ski-lift. Food was great, plenty of it, good choice, nothing to complaint about, it had that special Italian feeling which is difficult to re-create elsewhere. The wellness is fine though not too special. could not find a fault, enjoyed it thoroughly.

Room Tip: Any on the first floor, no issues with rooms whatsoever. 220 has shower and bathtub, plus separate W...

We recently stayed at the Hotel Oswald with a large group of friends/colleagues. The hotel was the best ski hotel I have stayed in, big rooms, very clean, extremely friendly and helpful staff and the food was outstanding!
I would definitely go back and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Thank you to Elisabeth, Tatjana, Timeo, Vincenzo, Pia, Ricardo and the whole team! :-)

We had a fabulous time at the Oswald. Very, very friendly and helpful staff, great meals and comfortable rooms (if a bit too hot.) They even got the wifi fixed when it went down on a Saturday. They helped us find a ski school for our kids and get our rental gear, and they have their own shuttle to take you to the nearby lifts. You can "almost" ski back from the slopes.

We really enjoyed our weeks stay, the hotel is kept to a good standard, the food was delicious with plenty of choice, our room and the public areas were cleaned to a high standard, the staff were all friendly and made us very welcome, we had the convenience of bus stops right outside the hotel, we hope to visit Hotel oswald again in the future.

Room Tip: To have the sun on the balcony, choose a west facing room.
