I stayed at Hotel Solaia in the village of Wolkenstein in Selva di Val Gardena valley. The hotel has a perfect location with ski in/out access. From the ski storage room you could walk to the blue run coming down from Dantercepies and going to village centre. From village you can walk either to the Ciampioni gondola lift station to go Sella Ronda counter-clockwise or towards St.Christina, or you can take the Costabella chair to access Dantercepies gondola to go Sella Ronda clockwise or the areas of Alta Badia.
Breakfast served at hotel was included as well as 3 course dinner server in Hotel Olympia next door. In the hotel there was an excellent span with proper Finnish Sauna, and a swimming pool with amazing view towards Sassolungo peak.
The hotel was impeccably maintained, charmingly decorated in local style and super clean. The owner was very friendly, helpful and could speak many languages. In this village people speak their own Ladin language
, and of course local Italian and German. Almost everyone can speak English too.
Probably there would have been nice after ski bars nearby, but I was so tiered after hard days of skiing, that I had to go sleeping straight from dinner. And wanted to avoid covid infection so stayed away from any crowds.
