Another recommend hotel from an Old Gits trip.  This was the 2019 trip base and was excellent.  A really friendly bunch of staff, nice rooms in a building with loads of character. It's a great base for exploring the wonderful roads of the Dolomites.  It has a secure underground car park and is walking distance to the local town.
Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Loved it there. Great hotel and the town has a nice variety of eateries. I also liked to ride there and back with two stopovers each way.
Its not always the destination that counts its the ride, having a destination just stops you going round in circles.

Just looked it up, looks really nice. I will be staying at the Hotel Gran Paradis about 40 miles West down the SR48.

Doesn't look like that SR48 wasn't built be the Romans, was it?   :o

All hotels the are nice, worked there for a couple of years.
Mind the polizia stradale with the light blue coloured cars,  very serious about speeding , full of street radars too - disguised most of the time as poles in the side of roads (law in Italy permits this) .
