Reviewed 10 August 2014

We just returned from Italy, and our stay in Castelrotto was definitely a highlight! Hotel Zum Wolf al Lupo, where we stayed for 4 nights, was a wonderful hotel. The location on the old town square is perfect...close to great restaurants, a chair list to amazing hikes, and the buses that we used everyday to get around. The perks at Hotel Wolf were many, such as complimentary bus passes, excellent breakfasts, and private balconies over-looking the magnificent mountains. The owner Arno and his lovely wife were extremely accommodating, and eagerly shared their excellent knowledge of local hikes, restaurants, and anything else we needed. Castelrotto is a little slice of heaven, and we are eagerly planning our return trip there for next summer!

Room Tip: We had a perfect corner room on the top floor.

I can't say enough good things about our stay in Castelrotto. Hotel Wolf is a lovely hotel in every respect. Clean, comfortable, quiet and relaxing with an absolutely delicious breakfast (eggs, cheese, meats, cereal, muesli, yogurt, juice, tea, coffee, cappuccino, bread and jams) included in the cost of the room. The Silbernagl's were great hosts. She was remarkably helpful in happily assisting us rearrange our travel to Frankfurt when our plans changed while we were staying there - it was as if she was also a travel agent. The cost of the room also includes free bus travel on the local bus lines which you'll use to get to the tram for hiking in the meadow or return to Bolzano for your train to your next location.

Hiking in the Alpe di Suisi was beautiful. There are hikes of varying difficulty so virtually anyone can go up the tram and enjoy the meadow and mountains. The food is much more Austrian than Italian but still wonderful. Castelrotto is a very quaint and clean town. German seems to be the primary language but Italian is spoken as well. Fewer locals speak English than in major cities but we had no difficulty getting help when we needed it. If we return to Castelrotto we will definitely stay at Hotel Wolf again.

My husband and. I travelled to nine different cities throughout Italy and hands down this hotel had the best breakfast! There was an assortment of food that would meet anyone's pallet. They had eggs, meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurt, cereal, breads, juices, tea, and fabulous coffee! Hotel Wolf has a friendly and knowledgeable staff. The rooms are large, very nice with cabin like wood finishes. We really like that this hotel uses the environmental concept with regards to bath towels. If you put them on the floor they will replace with fresh, clean towels and if you hang them up that indicates to the cleaning staff that we will use the towel again. We used our towels again!

We journeyed by rail to Bolzano, and walked two blocks to the Bolzano bus station for convenient every half-hour bus service to Castelrotto (Kastelruth), which is northeast of Bolzano. There is a bus stop by the train station, but we found afternoon out-bound buses were already full with locals and luggage-carrying travelers unless you walked a little further to the bus station itself. The hotel owners staff the reception desk and are very helpful with information about things to do in the area. The hotel is a 2-minute wallk from the Castelrotto bus station plaza in city center. All of the restaurant suggestions we were given for evening dinners were excellent. Their breakfasts featured a wide assortment of foods, such as scrambled eggs, soft & hard boiled eggs to order, yogurts, assorted breads, cheeses & meats, juice, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, In the summer, there is an evening self-service beer and wine area on the ground floor for guests to record consumption on an honor billing system ledger. Another great feature of the hotel is a laundry room with a 7 Euro token washer and free dryer, provided laundry detergent, steam iron, ironing board and drying racks. There is convenient bus service to the cable car serving as swift access to the World Heritage Area Alpe Di Siusi / Seiser Alm alpine meadows for partial day, day, and multi-day hike excursions geared for both families and experienced trekers. You can enjoy relatively flat walks or choose chairlifts and paths that lead to higher elevations and overnight huts with meal service. We recommend spending a minimum of four nights in this area to enjoy the world-class mountain scenery and community culture. We hope to return to this scenic area and this hotel again in the near future!

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel nine years in a row. We love hiking on the mountains, and this hotel is a perfect base for exploring all that the region has to offer. Rooms are generous in size and super clean; the breakfast is bountiful with cheeses, meats, breads, cereals, eggs, and all the excellent coffee and hot milk you can hold! Owners/staff are unfailingly helpful with advice about transportation, hikes, local events, restaurants, and the weather. English, German, and Italian languages. Laundry facilities for a small fee and free parking, too. And all at a bargain price considering the superb location and friendly service. We can't wait to get back there!

Room Tip: We like the back balcony view of the mountains but the bus terminal is nearby. If motor sounds dist...

Quality hotel, right in the center of town, and few steps to ski bus stop. Couple of ski shops down the street with rental equipment. Free outdoor parking, underground available. Several restaurants within few minutes walk.

Very nice hotel in the center of Castelrotto. You are close to everything in this cozy town. The beds were good and soft. Our room was large, clean and quiet.. We ate in the breakfast room two days and it was very good. Plenty of food items with lots of variety. Parking was secure on property, just out the back door. There was an elevator which was nice as not all hotels in Italy have one. I would love to return to Castelrotto and stay here!
