Known for its friendly staff and excellent food, the Hotel Serena Cortina is a great-value pick. It’s on the edge of the resort, which is ideal if you prefer peaceful evenings. But if you do fancy a night out, the main street is just a short stroll away. And getting to the slopes is hassle-free – just catch the public ski bus or hotel shuttle to the main lifts.
The hotel has a traditional look, from the bright green shutters to the frescoed walls. The authentic feel continues inside, with pinewood panelling lining the restaurant and a stone fireplace in the cosy lounge. Upstairs, the bright and simply furnished bedrooms are a comfy place to end the day – and some even have balconies where you can step outside to take in the mountain views.
As for the food, wake up to the smell of freshly baked croissants each morning, and fuel up for the day with a continental buffet breakfast. If you’re feeling peckish post-piste, you can grab a light bite from the hotel bar. And when dinner time rolls around, sit down for a five-course meal that mixes Mediterranean flavours with mountain dishes – think platters of cured meats and seafood risottos.
You won’t find many extra facilities here. Spend your off-slope hours relaxing with a drink in the lounge. Or if you fancy soothing your ski muscles, you can pay a little extra and book a slot to use the spa in the nearby Hotel Cristallo.
