We spent 2 nights at this wonderful hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly, English speaking owner who presented us with complimentary Bocards which entitled us to free transport in Bolzano including the cable cars and free entry to museums and other tourist attractions. During our stay the owner was always present and available which made a welcome change from the previous hotel we stayed in where it was difficult to find the manager/owner.
We had a large, well appointed room overlooking the swimming pool with wonderful views over the Adige valley to the mountains beyond. We were on half board terms so we ate in the restaurant each evening. The food was superb and very well presented. We sampled the local wines which, although not cheap, are well worth the money. The hotel has a very pleasant terrace to sit on. Meals can be taken on the terrace though we did not try this as both evenings we were there the weather was thundery. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and hope to return someday. With the cable car a few minutes walk away and a 4 minute ride down to Bolzano this hotel is well positioned for travelers who wish to visit Bolzano but prefer staying in the mountains to the heat of the town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Secluded Hideaway High above Bozen The world's first suspension cable car has been running since 1908 from Bozen up to Kohlern. Even then the local business people of South Tyrol's trading capital valued the tranquility and feeling of well-being up here. The sunny veranda is the heart of the house and offers fine dining and breathtaking views. Beautiful shady seats lie under lime trees where lunch is served on warmer days. The nostalgic rooms are in a rustic liberty style. After a trip to town, or a refreshing walk through cool woods, relax and revive yourself in the hotel swimming pool, sauna and whirlpool. ... more less
