We stayed in this marvelous hotel for 3 nights after a hectic week in Milano. We have been coming to Europe nearly every year or every other years over the last 30 years (5th time in Italy). Of course this place does not match some of the very expensive hotels we have stayed in Europe, but we had by far the most comfortable, pleasant and enjoyable experience by staying at this hotel. As many reviewers stated, staffs are genuinely nice and service is outstanding. The entire hotel has very calm and friendly atmosphere where you could really, really relax. I did not know anything about this hotel and blindly booked through Booking.com with the help of Tripadvisor. Actually the name sounded too 'American' and I almost avoided this hotel if I did not see such high rating by Tripadvisor's reviewers. Don't be misled by the name. This is a family operated local hotel where most visitors during the summer are from nearby European countries (Austria, France, Germany of course Italy) and can tell they are 'regulars'. The view from the room and from a large deck was breathtaking (see the picture). Breakfast and dinner were outstanding (dinner menu changes everyday). The dinner costs only 25 Euros/person, but the quality is first class and worth well over 50 Euros/person. In fact I spent far more just for a lousy lunch in Milano. Also one day they had a special pasta night in addition to your regular dinner where you can ask a pair of cooks how you want your pasta to be cooked (type of pastas and ingredients) and I had squid, octopus, shrimp, and fish pasta). Local deer stake for dinner was very tasty. One more thing, we originally booked the last room available on Booking.com. The room was small and facing the next building. So I just asked whether any room is available facing valley and beautiful mountains with deck. The receptionist said that there is one and with additional 10 Euro/day we could move there. We took the offer, but to our surprise, the manager (a family member sitting in the back) said we could move there without paying additional fee. The advise I have for tripadvisor readers is that book your room via hotel site not through internet travel sites if you want a fantastic mountain and valley views and sun deck (yes with internet travel sites, rooms may cost you a bit less but you many not get what you want). If you like hiking or biking, trails (just simple walking to advanced hiking and biking) are everywhere starting from the hotel. Finally, hotel room is comfortable and very clean. So if you are looking for a hotel for relaxation and summer activities in this fantastic alpine mountain region near the border between Austria and Italy, this is definitely for you.
