When you stay at Hotel Monte Sella it feels like you’re staying with a family friend. Nobert and Cristina are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them or their wonderful team. The Art Nouveau building makes it seem like you’ve stepped back in time and there’s little nostalgic touches throughout the property. The rooms are great with lots of space and comfy beds to collapse in at the end of the day.

Traditional hotel

The historic Hotel Monte Sella has been loving run by the Cristofolini family for over four decades, the property is over 120 years old and retains the charm of a traditional alpine hotel, although it has been loving renovated over the years. The comfortable rooms are bright and airy, furnished in a modern Art Nouveau style, making this an ideal base for a comfortable stay in the Dolomites. 

Make sure to leave lots of room for breakfast and dinner as the food here is great. When it comes to meal times you can enjoy delicious in-season dishes, the chefs prioritise using local ingredients with produce coming from the area including flour from Venice and salts from Cervia. The menu combines tasty Tyrolean cuisine and Mediterranean dishes, each evening you can enjoy a three course evening meal in the cosy dining room - there is a wide selection of wines from the South Tyrol, be sure to ask the staff for their recommendation. 

Great location

The hotel's location means you are only 50 metres away from the ski lifts, so you can be skiing the world-class runs of the Dolomiti Superski in no time. The hotel also organises free guided skiing and snow-shoeing for guests on selected dates. You’re right in the centre of the resort too so there’s plenty of bars and shops in easy walking distance.

Soothing spa

We highly recommend taking a day out to enjoy the spa too. Have a dip in the indoor pool with wonderful views of the Dolomites, or rejuvenate in the sauna before relaxing on a lounger. If you truly want to unwind, massages and treatments are available through the inhouse therapist, or if you want to stay active there is also a fitness room with a range of equipment.

Kronplatz, also known as Plan de Corones, is part of the famous South Tyrol and the Dolomiti Superski area and is known for its modern lifts, guaranteed snow and breath-taking 360º views of the Dolomite Mountains. The pistes are well groomed and never overcrowded, making the resort ideal for all levels of skiers and particularly families and beginners. San Vigilio, where our hotels are located, is to the south of Kronplatz and is a pretty Ladin village that blends modern chic with old customs and traditions. There are plenty of activities available such as sledging, snowshoeing and sleigh rides and after a day on the slopes you’ll enjoy the selection of cosy bars and restaurants.

Lift pass information

Featuring a linked ski area of 1220km on one lift pass, the Dolomite Superski Area Pass, is worth every penny. To access the Sella Ronda you can catch the local ski bus running every 20 minutes from the Piculin cable car valley station which takes you to the Sponata lift in Alta Badia. From there you can ski over to Corvara and start the epic journey around the Gruppo Sella. 

For those looking to make the most of the local area in Kronplatz, you have 120km to explore. It's perfect for families or groups of different abilities as majority of the lifts lead back up to the top of the plateau where you can gather for a drink or lunch each day.
