We were promised by the hotel a nice view from our room. Instead we got a view to a construction site.
Yes, the room was nice and clean like in the photos you see on the website, and I liked the bathroom, the cleaning lady was also nice, and this is why it gets 2 stars, but it means nothing if you can’t get a good night sleep. Even with the window open and sleeping with no blankets we were sweating all night as there in no a/c in the room. I know in Europe many rooms do not have a/c so I was willing to look past that, however the last night we were there there was a wedding right below our room, that went on until 3 in the morning. We could not sleep at all and even when we closed the window it was really loud.
I think if the hotel knows that there is a wedding, the descent thing to do is let the guests know that while they are making the reservation. If I had known in advance I would choose another hotel.
The next morning we wanted to have a quite breakfast and we were seated next to a large loud group with children, who attended the wedding the night before. We decided to just skip breakfast and check out.
When I told all this to the manager he apologized and offered me a bottle of wine as a compensation. I do not drink alcohol and neither does my fiancé so I told him that, hoping we will at least be offered a discount for the sleepless night. No such luck.
Our entire day was ruined as we were both very tired and disappointed.
We had money saved especially for this trip ,we weren’t looking for luxury , just to get a good nights sleep and relax a bit, and we definitely feel it was not good value for our money.
There are plenty of lovely hotels in that area, I suggest you choose one of those.
We spent some nights in South Tyrol and found this hotel. Spent several nights in a big room, very clean and comfortable. Service is very friendly and the food is delicious. If you want to have a good night drink at the bar, try the local Z44 - a gin with alpine stone pine.
Great value for the money, away from the main town with reasonably quiet location, lovely breakfast, friendly staff with a room that wasn’t big nor small.
The Spa was clean, more extensive than a lot of UK hotels though feel more than 15 people would make it seem crowded, pool a little small though still nice enough.
Charming hotel located in a vineyard in a small town in the Dolomites of Italy. Room was lovely and spacious and very clean. Enjoyed a glass of wine from their own winery, seated in an outdoor patio. Dinner in restaurant was delicious with a germanic influence. Staff were pleasant and very accomodating. A short walk brought us to a beautiful abbey again set amidst a vineyard. Beauty all around and very gracious hospitality.
We spent three nights here while visiting wineries and hiking in the area. The experience was fantastic.
Our room was lovely: small, but with room for a little desk and seating area near the windows, and a small balcony overlooking a stream with just enough space for two people to sit and enjoy the fresh mountain air in the evening. The decor was very comforting, with lots of wood and some richly colored upholstery. The bathroom was new and very clean.
The hotel has a "spa" which offers services (massages, etc) that we didn't use. However, we did use the facilities almost daily: a steam room and a small pool with some whirlpool jets. After long days of walking and hiking it felt perfectly indulgent. There is also a terrace with both indoor and outdoor space to lounge and relax.
The restaurant is also excellent. We had dinner one evening and breakfast all mornings--among the better hotel breakfasts I've enjoyed. A wide selection of fresh breads, as well as fruits, meats and cheeses, yogurt and various grains. There is an outdoor area (where we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner) as well as a cozier indoor dining room with large windows and excellent light in the morning.
The hotel is about 2k from Bressanone/Brixen--an easy drive; but there is also a walking path that follows the river and is a wonderful way to get in and out of town.
The owner/chef/manager (a busy man who can been seen at all hours of the day around the hotel, ensuring a certain personal touch without being overbearing) also recommended a fantastic hike to us, taking the gondola up to the mountain top and then walking around it.
While there my friend and I spoke often of how much we would love to come back--it was really a great experience.
