“Chalet Barbara Arabba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

We have just come back to the UK after a fabulous week's skiing in the Dolomites Italy. We stayed at the chalet Barbara which is a sister hotel to the Sporthotel in Arabba. The rooms were large and roomy with beautiful decor in the style of the South Tyrol, it was a lovely warm and cosy place to stay with a nice variety of cheeses, ham, bread, eggs, croissants and cake for breakfast with a hot option if you were staying half board. Near enough to the Burz chair lift to ski down in the morning although this was only good for competent skiers as the run down to the lift was a bit narrow and bumpy but good fun if you can ski.

We stayed in the Challet Barbara for New year holiday there as a group - 5 families. We enjoyed stay there very much and looking forward to return there again. Outsdanding friendly and family atmosphere, spacious rooms, very good breakfast, nice, clean, ski-out, ski-in...
Special contribution done by Serena, manager of the challet who really made extended and excellent work and contributed to our satisfaction very much.
We recommend stay there to families, friends group and to all :)

The only bad point, but not to the Challet is bad access to the town on foot. Arabba city should make some stairs and maintain them during winter to provide safe walk down to town. Anyhow, still perfect holiday!!!!

Small, traditional style chalet hotel very well presented and clean. During our stay staffed (part-time) by two brilliant Moldovian girls and a very smiley cleaner who was horried to find she had forgotten our room one day! Very laidback and relaxed, our room had great views of Porto Vescovo and a south facing balcony for post-ski sun bathing! Great buffet breakfast with a massive choice ranging form crossiants to eggs & bacon (ideal pre-ski food!). Ski-in, ski-out for reasonable level skiers.
However....
At the top of the ascend climbing (and it is a climb) out of Arabba.
No in house restaurant (we were on a package and had evening meals at the sister SportHotel a couple of ( very bracing) corners down the hill, however you have no choice but to go out to eat every evening.
Ski-in, ski-out entails traversing a black run - return just below a blind rise! Alternative is a walk up from the village in ski wear.....avoid at all costs!!
Also, watch out for the 'jacuzzi bath monster'.... the filter over the water return was missing from ours (and others) and wife has two bruises on her leg where she got caught (to be fair we pointed it out to the cleaner and a new cover was in place next day).
We were on the third floor and also had a bit of noise from the top floor suite above but nothing too dramatic.
All in all, for us, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and we would have no hesitation in returning.
