Convenient to explore Gran Sasso and with a level of comfort above average for the area, the biggest strengths of this hotel are its excellent service and its delicious cuisine, which is traditional but with a touch of finesse. In fact, most guests opt for half board, which includes a 4-course dinner: starter, first course (either pasta or rice), second course (meat with side), dessert. We are not big eaters and originally only booked for b&b, but eventually ate there daily, although not the full meal. Dining prices are not on display but I believe the full meal would cost 28 euros; looked like eating less was unusual as they had to work out a customised bill for us.

There are different types of rooms and we had a triple room, room 107 (first floor, no lift) which was spacious and with a nice view, at the front of the hotel (facing west). See attached photos of room and bathroom.

I spent eight nights at the Nido dell'Aquila over New Years and was quite pleased with my holiday. As I drove through Fonte Cerretto and saw hundreds of people and cars parked everywhere I was pleased that I reserved my stay at the Nido dell'Aquila which is about 300 meters beyond the chaos surrounding the Campo Imperatore cableway station. At the hotel I was welcomed by the lovely Valeria Bellassai, daughter of the owner, and given the key card to my room, number 103. It was on the first floor, rather small, with a window facing the pine-treed hillside (i.e., no view) but it was spotlessly clean and new looking. The bed had a nice white duvet with crisp new sheets and pillow cases and a very comfortable mattress. There was a small wardrobe and some shelving for clothes but as I was alone it was okay for me. A safe, small refrigerator, desk, chair, and a large flat screen TV on the wall. Good room lighting. The Bathroom was small but very new, with a beautiful large glass shower stall with excellent water pressure.
The free in-room wifi was appreciated. I noted that some of the other rooms were larger and had couches for added comfort. The hotel also has suites with fireplaces.
Downstairs was the reception, hall, a little library, bar, breakfast room, and the restaurant. Plenty of parking in front. For the duration of my stay I was on half pension, the cost for which came to about €110 a day and included a single supplement and the New Year's eve dinner and party (loads of fun!). While the daily breakfast was a bit spartan, everything was good and the coffee served by Mr. Fernando was excellent. The dinners were all very good (the restaurant was not open for lunch), starting with an antipasto dish, first course pasta or rice, and usually a meat entree, vegetable, and dessert. Wine and bottled water were extra. A nice wood-burning fireplace added to the atmosphere in the dining room. I did notice that many of the guests ordered off the al la carte menu but I suppose they were not on the pension plan. Some evenings we were served by a cute young girl named Caterina, other times by the director himself, Fabrizio Bellassai. Other than New Year's Eve, there were never many other guests at dinner, just three or four tables occupied besides mine. Fabrizio explained this was due to the global economic crisis and the scarcity of snow. While it snowed only one evening while I was there, the latter days of my stay brought warmer temperatures and some rain which all but eliminated what snow there was on the ground. Hopefully they will have ample snowfall in January and February.
The heavy snow was up on top, that is Campo Imperatore, one of central Italy's better ski areas. Twice I rode the cablecar up to the ski area, some 2100 meters high, and almost a thousand meters higher than the hotel. Only two of the four chairlifts were running but the days were sunny with a temperature of around -5 degrees celius which made for nice skiing on the runs that were open. Unfortunately the first day (27 Dec.), other than the chairlifts and ski rental shop, nothing else was open. The old historical Campo Imperatore Hotel was closed as was the bar/cafeteria. When I returned the second time (1 Jan.) at least this was open for coffee and something to eat.
The remainder of my holiday was spent driving through the local Abruzzo region visiting interesting towns and seeing some magnificent scenery each day. The capital city of L'Aquila is sadly semi-deserted after the horrendous earthquake two years ago.
In closing, I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday at the Hotel Nido dell'Aquila where I met some very nice people, citing also Maria Teresa who worked the reception desk each day and the kind lady who kept my room so sparkling clean. All in all a great staff working hard to make their guests' stay enjoyable. P.s., the family name "Bellassai" can be translated as "exceedingly beautiful" and both Fabrizio and Valeria were indeed good looking.

Just back from this hotel , the hotel was spotless ,cleaned every day all the staff were really nice and helpful, we went self catering and on one occasion decided to eat in the hotel restaurant and am sad to say we regretted it ! We ordered chicken breast ,chips and salad! The chicken was really tough and chewy ! Couldn't eat it ! The pool area was nice and quiet and again spotless! We had a fantastic view from our room of the sea but sadly absolutely no sun obmn the balcony, making it quite cold .

We visited the hotel in September which is low season. The hotel is very nice with a nice location and nice decor. However not all rooms have a view. We had to upgrade to have a nice room with a terrace. Still there was no safe in room, no fridge/minibar. The hotel is clean and all the people very nice and helpful. The rooms are not very well insulated and you could hear everything that was happening in the next rooms.
Breakfast is very basic with lots of cakes - not healthy at all. The food at the restaurant at dinner is excellent - a good thing cause there is nowhere else within walking distance to eat. If you have a car, you can go to nearby paganica where more restaurants are found.

Stayed here for two nights in August.

Pros:
+ Nice view of the mountains from the pool area
+ A small but nice pool and also a jacuzzi
+ Modern restaurant and lobby
+ The staff (most of them) speak English and were friendly

Cons:
- Our room was small, didn't offer any view and wasn't cleaned properly. We were also suspicious about the towels, not sure if they all were washed.
- Average breakfast (but the guy serving the breakfast was very friendly and nice)
- They have a bar but it seemed to be closed for the entire day, and it wasn't possible to have a drink in the restaurant unless you don't eat dinner there - so there's nothing to do at the hotel itself if you don't wanna have dinner
- The entire pool area was booked for most of day 2 of our stay. We weren't informed about this in advance and got a bit disappointed because we booked this hotel mostly because of the pool
- Our room had the tiniest shower I have ever seen
- We also had dinner at the restaurant, it was OK but nothing special (the tiramisu was the best part of the dinner, the pasta and bruschetta we had was below average in taste and quality)

Such a shame, the hotel was very nice and in a lovely location and the staff were very nice and wanted to help, but we were put in a room with no window, a long thin airless room with a shuttered door at the end even though I had booked it 6 months ago. Sure it would have been fine for a winter's trip skiing up on the mountain but this was part of our family summer holiday and it was pretty miserable to be given this very short straw. It smelt of gas and as we turned the corner to be shown our space we walked past a rack of washing located on the bare terrace. The patron could not move us somewhere better as it was the Italian equivalent of 'bank holiday' and it was rammed. We were told that we should have rung to make sure that we were given a room with a decent view even though it would have been smaller. Not sure what to say other than to check in advance if you are a family of 4 with small children and need to share - make sure that you are given a decent room. I won't be returning as a result of this even though we could see that it could have been a nice hotel to stay at.

If you do not expect to much, you will be satisfied with this hotel. It is basic, has not been renovated for some time, however it is clean, quiet and located just at the road to Gran Sasso and in a walking distance from the cable car station in the valley. Be careful: the breakfast is served only till 9:30 am, so if you have just had a long journey by car and slept just a bit too long the next day, you might miss it ;)

We wanted to stay near L'Aquila on the way from Rome to Porto San Gorgio and to see a piece of Appennine. Comparing to hotels in Rome (in which we stayed) this one was perfect. Very nice room, quite large, clean and big bathroom. Very quiet in the night. There is a restaurant in the hotel where we ate the dinner. We were totally impressed by the service (perfect!) and very good food. There is a very nice view on the mountains from the hotel terrace where you can sit and drink a cup of coffee. People working there were very friendly and helpful.

Buongiorno, non ci ho fatto molto caso (non abbiamo figli) però vicino alla piscina ci sono alcuni giochi x bambini e trovate pure un praticello dove può giocare in sicurezza. Noi ci siamo stati a settembre, quindi non so cosa proponga nel periodo invernale, nella bella stagione è un bel posto anche perché rimane sopraelevato rispetto alla strada e quindi in sicurezza.

Ciao, La funivia che porta a campo imperatore è vicinissima e comodamente raggiugibile a piedi dall'hotel.durante l'inverno la strada per raggiungere campo imperatore in auto viene chiusa. So' da amici che la sera del 31 in hotel l'anno scorso anno organizzato una festa top con musica dal vivo e dove al contrario di quello che ti puoi aspettare per l'ultimo dell'anno hanno mangiato benissimo. Anch'io ci sto facendo un pensierino. Magari ci vediamo lì. ciao

Credo che il proprietario o il cuoco siano celiaci perché ho trovato una conoscenza sull'argomento e quindi piatti dedicati che non avevo mai trovato in nessun altro ristorante. Consigliato 100%

Non abbiamo avuto problemi. Per i primi la pasta era senza glutine, per i secondi non c'erano problemi. Per la colazione venivano serviti prodotti senza glutine a centro tavola.
