Val Gardena / Selva AccommodationAll three Val Gardena villages are large enough – and on steep enough hillsides – that from the outlying hotels and apartments you’re committed to travelling by car, hotel shuttle or ski bus to reach the lifts; so consider your needs carefully.
Selva – Wolkenstein
Selva Gardena (Wolkenstein) has a total of 7,500 guest beds and the obvious exceptions to the ‘must be central’ rule are the five star Alpenroyal, and the ‘four S’ star Granvara, with sumptuous spa complexes, incredible views and all that you might expect from a four start superior hotel.
On a similar theme, with ‘wellness’ centres at the heart of the plan, Selva has no fewer than 13 four star hotels; many of the 40-plus three stars are chasing hard on their heels; even the more historic buildings such as the Hotel Posta al Cervo, right in Selva town centre, are as comfortable and spacious as most skiers need.
Selva also offers a choice of 11 two star hotels, with fewer amenities but nevertheless the kind of quality to make French alpine hoteliers wince; the same can be said for Selva’s numerous bed & breakfast guesthouses, and the large range of apartments.
Santa Cristina – St. Christina
With under half of Selva’s guest beds, Santa Cristina is still no slouch in the quality accommodation stakes with five 4-star hotels and around a dozen 3-star hotels. But there is cheaper accommodation too.
Ortisei – St. Ulrich
Ortesei – 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 two 5-star hotels, the Adler and Gardena, with not much to split them; a dozen 4-star hotels, of which the Hotel Hell must surely be worth a visit; and around thirty 3-star hotels as well as numerous pensions and apartments collectively providing up to 5700 guest beds.
