The setting of the hotel is spectacular and our room had a great view of both the well-manicured garden and the valley beyond. That said, the rooms are quite spartan and the bathrooms are very small. Others have mentioned a mini-bar but we lacked that and a small fridge would have been nice to cool water for hiking. The tap water never runs really cold. There is an elevator and not every Italian hotel has one. The staff were friendly and helpful. You can borrow glasses from the bar area (which you would want to enjoy purchased Tuscan wines). The meals were generally quite plain. There was no toaster available at breakfast and the bread was somewhat dry. We were there for a week and, after the first couple of days, they did provide boiled eggs to augment the cold meat, cheese and pastries. The dinners were tasty but never anything notable. Our best meals were at two local restaurants in Cortina. The hotel is outside the town and it is an uphill walk into Cortina but there is an escalator for part of the climb. They do provide a laundry service but it is expensive and does take two full days as they air dry the clothes. They also have some problems keeping clothing sorted - two of my husband's shirts were returned to two other rooms. Overall it is a decent 3 star hotel that depends rather heavily on its setting and history to appeal to tourists.
