“Understated Top Hotel Worldwide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

I have stayted at ParkHotel Holzner 3 times, and cannot praise it highly enough, and I hope to continue to stay there regularly for the rest of my life. The food is superb, the accommodation the epitome of comfort and understated (and classic Art Nouveau) elegance (though the bathrooms are internal and dull, everything works beautifully). I have always stayed on the Jugendstil side of the hotel, every room having access to a private balcony or terrace, and glorious views across the lawns and valley to the Rosengarten Dolomites. The staff knock themselves out to be accommodating, and although my friend and I are some of the few non German or Italian speaking guests, ensure that for our stay a menu is posted in English as well as German and Italian. The food is sublime, and healthy. On our third visit, we were welcomed at the official opening of the new spa complex, at which the local priest blessed the facility (including nude sun-bahing area). The cable car (next to the hotel) runs regularly, giving easy access to and from Bolzano, which has fantastic shopping and cafes, as well as Ozti the Iceman in the local museum; the hotel also lay on a car to meet the 5.30pm train from Verona. Many guests come for a walking holiday, and the surroundings on the Ritten plateau incredibly beautiful and refreshing. Not a cheap break, but excellent value.

Room Tip: Go for the higher priced Jugendstil rooms, facing the Rosengarten.

This is a brilliant hotel nestled in the mountains above Bolzano. It looks like a "Hansel and Gretle" house! Views are truly stunning over the valley and well placed for transport down to Bolzano city (the cable car is next door), and the mountain railway is minutes away. Breakfast in truly amazing and the staff very helpful. It caters primarily for German and Austrian guests, but the team went out of their way to ensure that English visitors were made to feel welcome. It's great that you get a free pass for the cable cars and public transport too! Most people stay half board. The evening meal is from a set menu until 8:30PM (included in the half board rate) and a la carte after that. The only negative was that this timing distinction was made clear so we sadly missed the a la carte dinner due to other plans. Facilities such as the pool, bar and beaty centre are stunning. All in all, a superb hotel, representing good value in a great location. In many ways, I shouldn't write this review, as the Bolzano region isn't known to English visitors very much and I'd like to keep this little gem secret!!! Well worth a visit to see a different part of Italy.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have stunning views over the valley but are more expensive. Rooms at the back lo...

This is a wonderful family hotel. The restaurant (for breakfast, lunch and dinner) is outstanding. Staff very competent and very friendly. The hotel rooms are however somehow old fashioned.
The new spa with pool is very stylish...

Due to a recommendation from friends we stayed ten days at the Holzner with our two littel children in summer 2010. The hotel has an incredible charme and without doubt one of the best kitchens I have ever seen in a hotel. Italian and German families of all age are coming together and is has really the feeling of a personal home. The children and families can join some action in groups or just split and enjoy the day. The small number of rooms makes the place never crowded and the served meal in the evening is the highlight of the day. We will be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At The Holzner, you will encounter a world of what seem to be opposites. However, upon closer inspection, you will discover a flowing harmony accented with pleasant contrasts: Art-Nouveau ornaments, dating back to the founding year 1908, transcend into the clean lines of modern architecture. The high-quality standard finds its ideal counterpart in the warm and charming service, allowing for an atmosphere of ease and comfort throughout the entire house. The Holzner, with its idyllic location in the midst of the majestic landscapes of Ritten Mountain, is also easily accessible to and from the region's capital, Bozen, by means of cable car. This makes The Holzner a rural retreat and a city hotel at the same time. At The Holzner, these seeming contrasts form a whole. You will encounter a world of coherent harmony as well as exciting distinctions: a world that is always unique, always alive. ... more   less
