The Dolomites Inn is our first hotel in the Mountain Collection family in the huge 1220km Dolomites ski area. It lies in the popular Val di Fassa in peaceful and sunny Penia di Canazei, just 1km from neighbouring Alba and 3km from lively Canazei centre.

 

For 2018/19, we've decided to change the hotel to a chalet hotel. Everything else stays the same, it’s just the board basis that will change from half board to our popular chalet board. This offers the same daily breakfast and afternoon tea, but now with six evening meals which include complimentary wine.

 

The style of the hotel is traditionally Tyrolean with strong ties to local Ladin traditions. These are evident in the comfortable bar and gorgeous stube with its traditional wood burning stove. It makes an ideal setting to exchange exploits of your days on the seemingly endless pistes. 

 

 

Relaxing is made easy for you thanks to the small wellness area. Ease ski legs in the hot tub or sauna, or work off some of the delicious food and wine in the hotel’s squash courts – not something you see every day.
 
The Alba-Col Dei Rossi gondola is just down the road and whisks you straight into the renowned 40km Sella Ronda circuit – an intermediate skier or boarders dream! The free local ski bus stops outside the hotel regularly to save you the 5-10 minute walk.
 
The hotel is a lovely place to relax of an evening, but if you do fancy a night out in Canazei, you won’t be stranded as taxis run right up until 4am to bring you home. This is a perfect choice if you’re looking for a relaxing, peaceful stay whilst enjoying superb Neilson hospitality in one of the most beautiful parts of the world.

About the resort

Penia di Canazei is a picturesque and traditional village nestled in the stunning Val di Fassa. If you're looking for a tranquil base to explore the incredible 1220km of snowsure Dolomiti pistes and Marmolada Glacier, this is it. Access to the renowned 40km Sella Ronda circuit is easy thanks to the Alba-Col dei Rossi gondola just down the road.

 

Evenings are laid-back in Penia itself but the Dolomites Inn is a lovely place to spend quality time with family and friends. That's not to say you don't have options as there are plenty. Neighbouring Alba has a good selection of bars to visit straight off the slopes.

 

Beyond that, Canazei has some great shopping plus a wide range of bars and restaurants to sample the extraordinarily good local cuisine. There's even a nightclub for the night owls. Taxis run right up until 4am so there's no chance of getting stranded.

 

 

Being surrounded by the towering snow-capped peaks of Belvedere Mountain and the Marmolada glacier makes for some jaw-dropping scenery. It's definitely worth trying activities like snowshoeing or cross-country skiing to discover hidden parts of the area.
