“Comfortable small hotel with excellent food”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

A small friendly and comfortable hotel with really helpful staff and very good food. We stayed for four nights and initially did not plan to eat in the hotel at all but we were glad we did. There was different menu every evening and the staff were also willing to adapt dishes to personal tastes, breakfast was also very good. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay and would come again. One small comment is that it would be nicer if the sauna was open earlier.

Room Tip: The hotel is in a quiet location so noise not really an issue.

Hotel Grones exceeded our expectations even having read the great reviews. It would be more accurate to say the food exceeded our expectations while the room, location, pool, cleanliness etc. met them very well.

The food was out of this world! They even had a reception for guests on Friday niight with appetizers and a tyrolean accordionist who was great.

Only three things that could have been better - they pour very weak drinks, you were almost better off with the mini-bar or sticking to wine/beer.. There's no fitness center. Also the location was quite a hike from the bus station with bags. It wasn't the distance so much as the steep steps. We had big duffle bags and took a taxi to the station when we left versus making the long-haul a second time.

This was a great stayy at the end of a wornderful but tiring trip!

The people at the Hotel Grones could not have been nicer. If you don't speak Italian, we always found someone who spoke English well, if that concerns you. The meals were excellent (we couldn't even begin to eat all of the dinner courses offered to us), and our two waiters were extremely friendly. The room was quiet and pretty, a nice change from the busier village of Ortisei. We loved taking the lifts to Alpe du Siusi and Seceda for wonderful hiking. The only problem I had was the lack of fans or air conditioning in the dining room one of the nights. Since we stayed during an unusually hot time (about 80-85 F. in Ortisei, and 95 F. in Bolzano), this is probably not something that happens very often. Our room was perfectly comfortable, though. Besides that, I think this hotel was a wonderful place to stay.

I have traveled around the world for most of my life and stayed at some pretty impressive hotels, among them Four Seasons in Nevis, Widder in Zurich, Beau Rivage Palace in Lusanne, but Hotel Grones beat them all. We booked this hotel based on the excellent reviews we saw on Trip Advisor but Hotel Grones exceeded them all. The hotel sits high above the city in a most amazing scenic valley, offers very clean and modern rooms, an interior swimming pool with a spa that features two saunas and one steam room, and the best gourmet meals I have every experienced, all prepated by their master chef. The hotel is run with military precsion from the most friendly Grones family. Everything is hands on and dedicated to the pleasure and enjoyment of the guests. The only disapointment is having to leave after a weeks stay and perhaps the need to have free internet for all guests. Do not miss this hotel, if only for the meals.

We spent three weeks in Italy (traveling with kids 16, 14 and 10) and this was my favorite spot. The hotel was immaculate, food was fantastic. Stayed three nights and never once wanted to try another spot for dinner.
A quiet and quaint respite that served as a "breather" after a week of crowded, touristy, hot sightseeing in Rome and Venice.
The scenery is beautiful, took two cable cars and just enjoyed the views. There is lots of hiking for those who enjoy it. The small town of Ortisei has a pedestrian area and is very quaint. The owners don't speak a lot of English, but we could communicate effectively enough. Hotel Grones and Ortisei are a little off the beaten track when touring Italy, but if I were going to go back, this would be the first place I would return.

As all the others reviews have said, the Hotel Grones is wonderful.

I note that the last reviewer said that the room was small - ours (a superior room) was huge. Kingsize bed, plenty of wardrobe space, large bathroom with walk-in shower (which we asked for - not being bath people), balcony etc . Spotlessly clean.

The food is exceptional. They take your dinner order at breckfast (there's a choice of three things for starter, main course and dessert - on top of which there's generally another two little courses too). I was tempted to try things I hardly ever (if ever) have at home - veal, rabbit, beef carpaccio. The menu includes a wine recommendation from the lower end of the price range - we went with that each night, as it introduced us to Tyrolean wines, and it was all excellent. Breakfast included a really good range of fruit, ceral, meats, cheeses and breads (we had breakfast, hiked all day without lunch and then had dinner - if we'd have had lunch we wouldn't have been able to appreciate the delights of dinner!).

The owners and staff were all very friendly, for us they had the right balance between efficiency, helpfulness and informality.

For those with a car, there's a large underground garage (we drove from Innsbruck, which was an easy drive of under 2 hours).

It's an nice 10-15 minute stroll into the town along a pedestrianized walkway just to the front of the hotel. It's really good for an after dinner stroll!

The hiking / scenery are wonderful - we tended to hike up mountains and get the gondola / cable car etc down, which gave the lungs a good workout!

I'd recommend the hotel to anyone and REALLY hope to go back some time soon!

Room Tip: We had 205, which was great, but I think they're probably all good
