We stayed here for a week over Christmas 2013 and were very pleased with this hotel.
To deal with that unusual name first: Hell is a family name which also happens to mean “bright” in German, which is widely spoken here in the South Tirol. It did cause some amusement amongst our friends when we told them where we would be spending Christmas, but we were delighted with the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
In fact we were the first guests of the winter season, but everything was ready for us when we arrived early in the afternoon. Our spacious room on the second floor overlooked the village nursery ski slopes. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom included a corner bath with shower.
Meals were good: breakfast was a typical selection of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, cheese, cold meats and pastries. For the evening meal there was a choice of first and second courses plus a salad buffet, a cheese course and desert. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day a delicious set menu of six courses was served.
The hotel stands on the river promenade, close to the swimming pool. It is built in the modern chalet style: the public rooms are large and beautifully furnished in typical Tyrolean style. In the basement there is an extensive fitness centre.
A real asset, especially in winter, was the free hotel minibus service to the ski lifts in the morning, and back to the hotel in the late afternoon, easily arranged with a quick phone call.
The hotel owners and all their staff were friendly and welcoming: we have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this hotel.
