Val Gardena Accommodation
Selva di Gardena (Wolkenstein) is the main Val Gardena ski resort. It’s quite large and surrounded by steep sided mountains so from many of the hotels, chalets and apartments you have to take a hotel shuttle bus or ski bus to reach the lifts. Santa Cristina is smaller. Ortisei is famous for the quality and quantity of its smart hotels.
Hotels and Apartments
The 5 star hotel Alpenroyal has its own park with multiple spas and pools. It’s located close to where Selva turns into Santa Cristina, so you can choose to start your skiing from either of the two resorts. The hotel provides a shuttle bus to take guests into central Selva and the main Selva lift station, and there is also a public ski bus stops nearby to take guests to the Col Raiser ski area which is only about 600m away. The 4-star hotels most highly rated by customers include Hotel Chalet S, the Hotel Fanes , Hotel Genziana, and the Mountain Design Eden Selva but there are others and they face fierce competiition. Many of the 40-plus 3-star hotels and 3-star Garnis (similar to a very smart guesthouses) are chasing hard on their heels. Some are ski-in ski-out such as Garni Schenk and the Hotel Condor. And there are plenty of 2-star and simpler guesthouses with fewer amenities but high standards of service. And there are even more apartments, some of which offer comfort levels equivalent of a luxury hotel such as the Residence Villa Garn Baita.
Santa Cristina (St. Christina)
Santa Cristina has about half the number of tourists and guests as Selva but still has five 4-star hotels including the highly rated and conveniently located Dorfhotel Beludei. It’s about 400m, or 6 mins walk from the nearest lift. If you want a 4-star that’s even closer, the AlpenHotel Plaza is about half the distance, whilst the SportHotel Monte Pana is actually on the slopes one lift up the mountain. There are aslo around a dozen 3-star hotels, and plenty of simpler hotels and guesthouses, and self-catered apartments.
Ortisei (St. Ulrich)
Orteiei – St. Ulrich has lots of hotels populating the steep south-facing mountainside above the village, all of which have sweeping views down the valley and relatively long descents into town centre.
There are three 5-star hotels, the Adler Dolomiti Spa, the Gardena Grodnerhof, and the Montchalet with not much to split them as they all have very high customer ratings and excellent facilities.; a dozen 4-star hotels, such as the Hotel Grones; and around thirty 3-star hotels as well as numerous pensions and apartments collectively providing up to 5700 guest beds.
