Hotel Garni Serena
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Arabba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Situated just ten mins walk from the centre of arabba, this hotel is ideally placed for the slope. With carefully planning and the right amount of snow, it could be considered ‘ski in and ski out!’
The staff here were suburb, with nothing too much trouble. Always a friendly smile at breakfast and on return from the apre ski.
The wellness centre is well maintained and free! If you need the extra workout, there is a small but well equipped gym. Just 1 Euro per day for the sunbed.
The ski room has personal lockers with heated boot rack and again, this is well maintained and very clean.
We have stayed in Arabba on four other occasions, but this would be our recommended hotel.
Some might find the walk up hill back from the town centre a little strenuous, but the views are worth it.

Room Tip: ask for an upstairs room - 100 is a three person room on the ground floor. Great for breakfast, but...

What a fabulous little hotel. Myself and my kids were very comfortably accommodated in adjoining rooms, we had a view of the mountains. There was parking underneath and an elevator which helped a lot with all our luggage. The drive into ( and leaving) Arabba was absolutely spectacular. We had a wonderful breakfast and for a very reasonable fee they did 2 loads of washing which was simply marvellous.
We wandered down the street to dinner (Mikey's grill) which was also great. All in all a great stop. The walk to the top of the mountain was breathtaking too.

We stayed in this hotel-garni unfortunately only one night while we were walking the Sellaronda path. The hotel is brand new, very clean and extremely confortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It is located a bit outside the small center of Arabba close to the main road....but dont worry, at night there is no motorbike passing so it is extremely quite even though you take the rooms facing the roads.

We stayed here for our second time for a week in January. It's a great hotel in a fabulous location - pretty much ski in and ski out. The staff are always incredibly helpful - even going and collecting take away pizzas for us one night when we didn't want to go out to eat! Great rooms, lots of storage space and we had an enormous bathroom. The rooms have balconies with lovely views across the village and the mountains. We booked one of their more expensive rooms but didn't end up getting it - we were happy with the room we had and they sorted the price out for us at the end of the week when we paid so it wasn't a problem. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Hotel Garni Serena last summer for 3 nights and would have loved to have stayed longer but we were touring. It was an extremely comfortable hotel and the rooms were gorgeous. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were brilliant.
The breakfast buffet was excellent with made to order eggs, lovely fresh bread and plentiful good hot coffee amongst other things. The owner and his wife made us feel really welcome as did all the staff. Overall I cannot recommend it highly enough. We did have a meal at the sister Hotel Malita and we can also recommend that.
Our favourite meal however was in Mikey's Grill just a short distance from the Hotel Serena which was very typical Austian/Italy in style with the best pasta starter I have ever had.
Arabba is only very small but a great place to be with lots of lovely walks and a cable car and it is a perfect place to be on the Dolomite Road close to the spectacular Marmolada mountain (highest mountain in the Dolomites).
I would have no hesitiation in staying there again. Infact we are looking to stay again this year. It is reasonably priced and the rooms and facilities are lovely. Highly recommended.

In planning a ski trip to the Dolomites, we wanted a convenient location on the Sella Ronda circuit. We chose the 2-year old Garni Serena in Arabba, and were extremely pleased with our stay, which included daily rich breakfast buffet at the Serena, and nightly dinners at their sister hotel, Hotel Malita. Our room was quite large, with a balcony, a mini-bar, and a large bathroom with a tub. The rooms and entire hotel were kept spotless. The breakfasts were delicious, which included assorted pastries, meats, and made-to-order eggs. The dinners at the Malita were four courses of freshly prepared gourmet fare from local sources. Actually these were the finest meals we've ever had on our many visits to Europe. We enjoyed superior service, including shuttle service on demand. Arabba is an excellent choice for avid skiers, and we highly recommend the Garni Serena and Hotel Malita.
