This hotel brands itself an 'idyllic place' : this claim is 100% justified. This is a truly lovely place to stay. The 5* reviews below, including ours from a year ago, are spot on. That's why we have just been back, and had another great stay. It's not cheap but I don't begrudge them a euro. Read the reviews below... More

Not the easiest to get to, but well worth the effort. Rooms clean and comfortable with fantastic mountain views. Cuckoo in morning chorus not guaranteed but fantastic. Dining was a pleasure, food sourced locally and also the wine. Generous breakfasts. Good base for exploring the Alto Adige (sud Tirol) by public transport.

We arrived on foot from Deutshenofen, a 12km hike away. The hotel is set at the edge of a plateau overlooking Bozen / Bolzano in the Sud-Tyrol in the Dolomites. Dating from the early 1900s the building reflects its history but has been tastefully modernised. Our room (standard not superior) was a good size, with a valley view, spotlessly clean... More

We spent 2 nights at this wonderful hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly, English speaking owner who presented us with complimentary Bocards which entitled us to free transport in Bolzano including the cable cars and free entry to museums and other tourist attractions. During our stay the owner was always present and available which made a... More

This hotel is a real gem. Situated in a little village at the top of the cable car from Bolzano with fantastic views over Bolzano and across to the surrounding mountains. The nice thing is that you can get into the city easily for a visit but then escape to this little haven of peace on the top of the... More

We stayed here as part of a fortnight's walking holiday. The manager was exceptionally nice, with a good sense of humour. Our room was upgraded (very comfortable, with fantastic views and balcony), he had even provided an English adaptor. Free winetasting hour that night (in German, but we could still taste the wines, even if we didn't have a clue... More

Two nights at this mountaintop inn were not enough - the beautiful views, great food and friendly service made the stay seem way far too short. Keep in mind, like elsewhere in this region of Italy, the staff members are all bilingual in German and Italian, and English is spoken as a distant third or fourth language. However, even though...

My husband and I stayed here for one night in November 2009 (not 2010 as indicated) during our two week driving trip of Italy. Having read the other reviews about the steep road we decided to just enjoy the experience and took the cable-car up to this 'Chalet in the Sky'. The cable car was thrilling - the oldest cablecar...

If you are looking for a "high end" or "glitzy' hotel, this is not a good choice. However, if you are looking for comfort, cleanliness, spectacular views and mountain air, well-prepared meals, excellent wines and grappas, and peace and quiet, there is no better place on earth to stay for a few days! The staff was very helpful and pleasant... More
