Great hotel, perfectly positioned for town and ski in - out. We went full board and while restaurant is lovely and staff really nice the food is maybe a little too elaborate for a ski holiday. Maybe just our taste but I would have preferred rich meaty stews and filling pasta dishes. Food was more akin to fine dinning which...

I spent Christmas 2016, with my husband, in Cervinia. The Excelsior Planet hotel was a great place to stay. It is very close to the slopes (2 min walk) and to have our ski boots warm in the morning before a days skiing was a great start. The skiing was extremely enjoyable and there were plenty of runs to explore...

The Excelsior Planet proved to be an excellent choice for our first visit to Breuil-Cervinia. Although it's currently part way through some extensive renovations which appear to have been put on hold for the winter ski season there was no disruption for guests. Only an ostrich with it's head buried in the sand could fail to see it's perfect location,...

I've been to Cervinia a few times but this was the first visit to the Excelsior Planet. The 'Excellent' reviews on here are not wrong. The only reason I can think that this hotel is not 5* is that the decor is slightly dated. Other than that, everything was exceptional. The two things that made our holiday fantastic was the...

This historical Cervinia hotel, owned by the Zanetti family and famous for its excellent location just in front of the ski area and close to the main pedestrian street, is now under important renovation works since the last summer. It would be nice if the owners could publish (on the official hotel website) and communicate all the novelties, upgrades and...

Home away from home with food wine and service at its best. Positioned 1 min from te lift and still in the middle of the village. Host and hostess make you feel special and still part of the family. 7 years in a row at Excelsior and we have 40 years in the alp region tocompare with. Excelsior has "it".

Our 9th visit, which probably says it all. The top quality service, the spacious rooms (choose a junior suite), the amazing dinners, the comfortable lounge with a real log fire and the location, close to the Cretaz lifts, all combine to make this the perfect ski hotel. We especially appreciated Matteo's specialist advice on wines - just describe in outline...
