Enjoying a peaceful position just a short walk from the centre of Madonna Di Campiglio, the Hotel Cristal Palace is an excellent choice for keen skiers and snowboarders. The hotel has a lovely wellness area and cosy bar area, perfect for relaxing after a day on the slopes. 

Great location

Set slightly back from the centre of Madonna Di Campiglio, you can enjoy a peaceful location away from the hustle and bustle of the resort. The Pradalago cable car is just 200 metres away and the hotel offers a shuttle service to and from the lifts, so getting onto the Dolomites Ski Area couldn't be easier.

Panoramic mountain views

The hotel has a warm and inviting ambience to it, with a traditional alpine style throughout the restaurant, lounge and bedrooms. You can enjoy the panoramic mountain views of the Dolomites from many of the bedrooms and dine in style in the cosy restaurant with large windows overlooking the mountains. 

Wellness and relaxation

There is nowhere better to relax after a day of skiing or snowboarding than the hotel's wellness area. Take a dip in the heated swimming pool and enjoy a relaxing swim before heading over to the sauna or steam room for a moment of peace. Afterwards you can have a revitalising shower before unwinding on the loungers.

The Cristal Energy Spa offers a complete range of treatments and massages (payable locally), and there is a fitness room with a range of equipment.
