Colfosco Bed and Breakfast Hotel - Nature Hotel Delta

The hotel Garni Delta is located in Colfosco (location) in the Val Badia (also called South Tyrol). Colfosco is located in the southern part of the Val Badia that is higher than the northern part and so is also referred to as Alta Badia. We can’t say enough nice things about this hotel, but we’ll try. First, our room (a superior facing east) is the best designed room we’ve stayed in. There was plenty of cabinet storage, comfortable beds, a large window and glass door leading to a balcony, a circular work table, and internet! Second, the folks there are super nice: Ricardo, Manuela, and Stefano Afreider. They’ve helped us in every conceivable way with maps, advice, 4pm hot chocolate, and friendly chit chat. Third, the breakfast was just right, not too big or too small, and items rotating in and out according to season. Fourth, the location, above Colfosco, commands an incredible view. You can sit here all day just watching the weather changes against the backdrop of the mountains. Fifth, the cost is reasonable compared to what we’d seen elsewhere. Sixth, they opened June 1st this year which is quite early in the summer high season which really starts the 1st of July. Many hotels and B&Bs only start opening in mid to late June.

By the way, “garni” is the German word for a bed and breakfast hotel. You’ll see this word quite a bit travelling around the Val Badia.

Note: Some years after our first time there, the hotel changed its name to Nature Hotel Delta and as of 2018 they have expanded with more rooms.
