I found out about Bolzano from the design hotel website. It is somewhat of a hidden jewel of a city, tucked away in the Domomites with relatively few UK visitors. Needless to say I did not choose their Hotel Greif as I wanted a hotel with an outdoor pool and as the weather for the third week in August was consistantly 34 degrees this was a wise choice!

First impressions of the Scala Stiegl are underwheming - reception is small and dominated by a lift to take the disabled to its restaurant. Reception staff are very helpful, hard working and are keen to please. I booked a superior room - probably not worth the extra money, the promise of a marble bathroom turned out to be marble plastic tiles. The king size bed was 2 singles pushed together - the balcony had no furniture, and the furnishing did not seem to match!

Breakfast has a good range of fresh fruit, cheese, hams, yogert and breads - freshly brewed coffee and juices. Service is efficient. Breakfast can be taken outside in the garden.

The hotel's best asset is the outdoor pool and garden - a pleasure to sit in and lots of sun beds.

Bolzano can be reached via a flight to Verona - short bus ride (5 euros) to the station and then a 2 hour / 1 1/2 hour train ride depending on whether a regional or intercity train is taken. (Cost is 9.30 or 14.50 euros). The hotel is afew minutes walk from the station. So this is 'do-able' for a long weekend. In this area of Italy they speak Italian and German - the city is very clean. Its worth exploring with a good range of up market shops, and lots of opportunities to take cable car trips to mountain villages. There is one cable car station just round the corner from the hotel which takes you to Sopra Bolzano or Ober Bozen - Above Bolzano - the views are great and it costs just 3.90 return. (Next to the cable car station is a strange Aldi/Lidl type supermarket called Euro Spin - its the nearest supermarket to the hotel and sells cheap drinks including water.) BEWARE - ALL SHOPS CLOSE ON SUNDAY!

If you visit the, city - vist a bar called Fischbanke - a phantasy bar (Dr Steiter Strasse) is a must - try the Veneziano cocktail - a mixture of Aperol (orange liquor and prosecco). Best atmosphere is Bolzano!

One of the very best hotels. Very nice and helpul staff, spatious, clean rooms, huge garage cross the hotel, fine internet connection, excellent service. A very good breakfast buffet. On reccommendations we had very good food with very ggod wine. Superb hospitality. If you wonder how a hotel should be run, this is it.
It was a dream to be a guest here, and the hotel staff made it easy for us all to just forget about all worries.

We had never heard of this hotel when we planned our trip to Bolzano!
The plan was to stay at the Four Points Sheraton for a one night stopover on our way to Cortina. However when we arrived, there had been a fire at the Sheraton so they booked us into the Scala in town. My initial reaction was disappointment as the Sheraton looked good and the Scala looked much older.
But when we calmed down, we realised we had free outdoor parking (20 euro at Sheraton), free breakfast, and a great location in town. We probably would not have bothered going into Bolzano from the Sheraton, and would have missed a wonderful old world town centre. It also meant on the day we left, we were able to visit the "Iceman" museum which was a bonus.
So in the morning, having a good breakfast, in a pretty garden, warm and under a big umbrella, near to the swimming pool, we decided that fate had smiled kindly on us. If we come back to Bolzano, we would stay here again rather than on the fringe of town like the Sheraton.

Room Tip: High fllor executive rooms are good.

We went there for two nights in June. We had two double-rooms "Classic" with the view on the hill (wine). Rooms are beutifully furnished and bathroom was big and clean. Because it was so hot that days, the airconditioning was working like hell and water sipped out in the night. We put it off then... Perhaps airconditioning needs to be renewed in some days... Nevertheless, in the second night we had great sleep. The pool is very clean and it is great to lay in the shadow and take a "Veneziano" to cool down. You are even served. Great service. Not too many people so that we could relax at the pool. Really quiet. Walking distance to center about 10min. Best breakfast ever in Italy. Quite continental.
Grand hotel!

The only issue i had with the hotel was the lack of soundproofing on the doors. when people came down the hallway at night i felt like they were in our room! other than that and if you've taken earplugs the room was fine, great location with a short walk to this gorgeous town and the garden was lovely for breakfast.
