Reviewed 12 July 2017

You can forgive a lot about a hotel if the attitude of the staff is positive, friendly and helpful. The person who runs front of house or reception as the first point of contact with the guest is so important, and the lady here is frankly, miserable. That misery is only matched by the dreary nature of the bedrooms, the poor breakfast and the huge lack of investment over time in this place. It's in a beautiful area, but everything is sadly lacking. The breakfast is poor, shortbreads and biscuits left out uncovered ALL DAY until the next morning, fruit that was off in the "fruit cocktail" (from a tin). Waiters who whilst pleasant and friendly are from a bygone era and clearly don't want to be there. The other reviews of this hotel as "excellent" and "very good" I cannot fathom at all. Either those people must have shockingly low standards, or the place has gone so rapidly downhill as they were there in its hayday (unlikely). There are MANY other decent hotels in Cortina which don't cost the earth, and are far better value than this. AVOID.

As a postscript, WHY is it that so many places have difficulty (or don't care) about wifi? yes there is wifi here, but it's so slow you can barely read an email.

Very pleasant hotel -- booked through Discover France. Clean and comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfasts. Good storage for the bicycles.

My room overlooked the river, with a spectacular view up towards Falzarego. A few minutes walk up to the middle of town. Others had some trouble with WiFi, worked fine in my room (3rd floor).

My family visited over Christmas and for our daughters 21st birthday. I cannot recommend the hotel enough. Our stay was fantastic! The hotel is pictoresque homely and beautiful. Emanuela runs it with grace and the service is excellent. All the staff is kind and helpful. The food is delicious and perfectly served. I recommend the hotel wholeheartedly and cannot wait to visit again. Thank you for amazing memories!

This was a wonderful stay. The rooms are large and clean and well appointed. The location is quiet, but close to the city centre. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We went walking in the Dolimites for 7 days and they allowed us to park our car.

Very good position and traditional family run hotel - nice room with lovely views and what I would call a very good 3 star standard hotel - right on river with good outside seating and relaxing area and actually was probably the best breakfast of our Dolomite trip
