Il Dollaro Hotel, Falcade, Italy: A 45-second Review
That’s the view facing south from just out front of the Il Dollaro Hotel in Falcade, Italy, a sleepy town of about 2,500 at the heart of the Dolomites, the Alpine range that serves up some of the most beautiful mountainscapes the planet has to offer. All things considered, not a bad view with which to start the day.

There’s plenty more to like about the Il Dollaro, a small, modest and traditionally stylish family-run hotel and tavern at the edge of Falcade (1100m above sea level) that will easily fit the budgets of most winter or summer travelers.
As ski season rates go in this popular area, stays at Il Dollaro are a solid value, from €37-40 per person per night (with breakfast), to €48-54 with dinner. Winter 2016-17 rates are here.
I opted for the latter and was delighted with my dinner selection: a creamy risotto for the first course, veal scallopini for the entree, and an extraordinary tiramisu cake for dessert. (We were celebrating a birthday and the guest of honor said it was the best cake he’d ever had.) The dinner menu options vary enough from day to day that you’ll have a decent selection over the course of a longer stay.
