We stayed in Festungshotel Al Forte in May 2013 for roadcycling in the Dolomites. The roads and Passes around Arabba are all very picturesqe and thereforea heaven on earth for cyclists.
If you would like to stay in a hotel from which you could to walk in to the centre of the village, this is not the case.The road to the village (that is 4km from the hotel) is very busy and without a sidewalk.
The hotel is full of character. The Room was very nice and clean. From the balcony we could enjoy in the views over the mountines. The Wi-Fi access is not for free. You have to pay 1 eur for 3 days. Unfortunately we couldn't enjoy in the Wellness becouse the facilityes were rather small and therefore very busy. The fee for sandals and bathrobes is 8 eur/person and the whirlpool costs aditional 8 eur/person.
We signed up for the 1/2 board option and were not disappointed. The restaurant (in the old fort part of the hotel) serves up wonderful food in beauitful surroundings. The waiter in the restaurant and the waitress in the bar work constantly to make you feel welcome. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming.
For cyclists there is an underground room to store your bike securely in.
