“Very good but could be better”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

We received excellent service. The hotel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The spa is excellent even though it lacks a swimming pool. The food is very good but some main courses of the evening meal were disappointing. Access to the skiing is a short but strenuous walk - definitely not ski in ski out.

Three ways to improve:
Free wi fi. (currently 2 euro an hour)
Serve tap water in the restaurant. (currently 4 euro a litre)
Coffee and tea making facilities in the room. (none currently)

Just returned from the most fabulous stay at this hotel in Arabba. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. Fantastic bedrooms with views to die for that were clean and comfortable and warm. A wonderful restaurant with a large choice of menu each evening. Lots of public space to sit and relax after skiing - lounges with comfy seating, a real fire every evening, a very large bar with pianist/sax player every evening. Lively, and fun, but comfortable and restful at the same time this is a real gem of a hotel. A two minute walk to the main lift stations, and the most amazing skiing. We will certainly be going back.

I stayed here for a week in early January 2012 with a group of friends on a skiing holiday. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and made our party feel very welcome. The rooms were immaculately clean and well-kept and the maitre d' went the extra mile to look after us in the restaurant; there is an excellent bar too. The spa was a welcome retreat after a hectic day on the slopes and my stay was comfortable and enjoyable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Fabulous skiing by the way - the Dolomites are spectacular.

I nearly didn't book this hotel because of some of the reviews, but having just returned from a superb stay, I just don't understand the negative reports. The hotel was great - helpful staff, very comfortable rooms, excellent spa that was very welcome after a day's skiing, an extremely comfortable and welcoming bar and lounge, with music (piano, saxophone) on most evenings. The food was generally very good and plentiful - good choice from a buffet at breakfast, excellent salad buffet in the evening and the pasta dishes ans soups were good. We did, however, find some of the main courses disappointing on occasion - sometimes too big as well as being rather salty. Perhaps we had eaten too many things from the buffet! We felt that they could save waste and make the plates more appetising by serving less, but perhaps that was just us. From a skiing point of view, the hotel was well placed very close to the chair lift - just walk over the road and put your skis on, a little further to the gondola and cable car station - approx 5 mins, but only about the same distance that you have to walk through Arabba if you ski the Sella Ronda. The ski lockers were the best we have ever experienced - individual, lockable with heated boot racks inside each one. In fact the only negative comment we would agree with was the coffee - it had a rather bland taste and wasn't always hot.

We had never skiied in the Dolomites before so went with an open mind on a recommendation from our family, who had also stayed here but a while ago.

We loved it. Comfortable, clean with great service. It had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Access to the Sella Ronda was superb and there was enough skiing to keep us happy skiing from first lift til about 4 every day.... in fact we could have done with two weeks.

The hotel itself was welcoming, the staff attentive and friendly. Our room had an amazing view of the mountains so we could watch the sun appear over the mountains every day. Shutters provided black out, and even though our room was above the bar we were not disturbed.

The food was amazing and there was also lots of it! There's an extensive wine list and you don't necessarily need to spend a fortune - but can if you want to.

The spa was totally adequate for our needs, with bio sauna, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and aromatherapy showers. An excellent way to ease down after a day's skiing.

We will definitely stay here again - we arrived home yesterday and are already looking for next year, or trying to squeeze in an Easter visit!

Highly recommended!
