Overview - hotel description - Hotel Continental description

Sat at the top of the resort on the slopes, Hotel Continental not only has some of the best panoramic views of the area, it literally couldn't be easier to get on the mountain each day with the Dantercepies gondola outside the back door. The setting is truly outstanding with nature on your doorstep and a lot of effort has gone into making this an attractive and comfortable hotel to relax and enjoy everything on offer.

The public areas are decorated in an attractive, traditional style with hints of modern touches. The bar area is a lovely place to unwind by the warm fireplace and enjoy a few drinks with friends and family. Alternatively, you could take a trip to the wellness area and chill in the whirlpool or turn up the heat in the sauna or steam room which was our favourite way to loosen up after a day skiing.

Rooms are comfortable and clean, each with a balcony to step out onto and enjoy the magnificent views the area has to offer. In many rooms the walls are made of larch and alder wood, giving a real warm feeling and keeping in touch with the hotel's connection with nature and the surroundings.

Each morning you will enjoy a buffet breakfast with hot and cold options to get you ready for the day ahead. Dinner is an impressive 4 course meal and a chance for the chef to get creative as his clear passion for cooking is displayed with every dish served.

For those looking to explore the lovely resort of Selva, it's just a little ski down the hill or a 15 minute walk. It's maybe just the walk back up the hill that might be the struggle but that just means you've earned a few hours in the spa or perhaps an extra drink before dinner.

Another great thing about the location is the nursery slopes and ski school meeting points are both nearby, so not far to go at all each morning. A great hotel for those seeking the perfect location.

Transfer time: approx. 3 hours by coach from Innsbruck airport.

A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged.

Access to Sella Ronda Awesome Dolomite scenery Nearby glacier skiing

Comfortably nested within the Dolomites, Selva is part of the largest and arguably most beautiful ski area in Europe. The little mountain village will do little to dissuade you from the dreamy Italian promise of sun, snow and leisure, with excellent intermediate skiing, personable restaurants and lots to do throughout the valley.

Selva is the best known and highest of Val Gardena’s close-set group of villages, which also include Ortisei and Santa Cristina. Val Gardena is part of the expansive Dolomiti Superski area and topping the list of reasons to visit the Dolomites, or ‘Pale Mountains’, is its status as a UNESCO world heritage site - Selva has some striking views of the Sassolungo massif and Puez mountains on either side. Named “Sëlva” by its Ladin speaking locals (the name apparently comes from the Ladin word for wood) or “...
The nursery slopes are close to town and there’s a nice collection of blues towards one side of Piz Seteur and at Plan de Gralba (it’s worth mastering the bus timetable when going onto Plan de Gralba as taking the mountain route can land a beginner on some rather tricky reds). There are a number of ski school options available as well as a Fun Park for the younger-hearted. Just by looking at the piste map you can see the intermediate-friendly nature of the skiing here. For those re-discovering their ski leg...
Italian resorts don’t tend to be overly wild when it comes to après ski but with 20 bars, 45 restaurants and 2 main clubs Selva does rather well... If you’ve never had the iconic Bombardino beverage, this is a good place to sample one! Bar Saltos is a good foodie spot with a sometimes themed menu and music scene for later on. La Stua, near the Costabella ski lift, is great for après ski with a sunny terrace and live music. By the Dantercepies, Panorama does some hearty dishes, perfect before the final run...

"Fab food and staff, almost ski in/out, recommended!"

Mrs Matthews, Stratford Upon Avon
5/ out of 5
I would really recommend the Hotel Continental! Fabulous food, breakfast was always a buffet with everything you could want, I never asked for a cooked breakfast but I think they’ll make you one if you want it. There’s a nice coffee machine that freshly grinds the beans for really good coffee. The evening meals are always very good and there’s a little bar where you can sit and have a nice cocktail before dinner. The staff are all fantastic and the bedrooms are lovely with under floor heating in the bathroom. They have family rooms if you want them and children are well catered for. I love the spa area, it hasn’t got a pool but there’s a Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and it’s all quite new so everything’s very nicely done. It really has everything going for it - brilliantly situated in a good position for getting on the Dantercepies lift and you can pretty much ski in and ski out. I think they’ve just redone the lift so it’s probably all brand new out there now. You’re also virtually on the nursery slope which is bang opposite, so if you had children it would be really easy to drop them off at ski school and then take the lift up to go skiing yourselves. Walking down into town is a doddle but the only thing is you have a hell of a trump back up the hill if you want the après in town. This doesn’t bother us as we have our après on the mountain but if you did want to go out in town, the walk back up would take about fifteen minutes and is quite testing, especially if you’re wearing ski boots and carrying skis. I wouldn’t say the hotel would suit hen do’s or stag do’s or a lads or ladettes holiday, it’s more for keen skiers who like to be on the first lift out.
