We stayed 2 nights at Bäcksteinerhof and enjoyed our stay. The host was friendly and hospitable. The place was located in a nice place with apple orchards in the vincinity and a nice view of the mountains. It took us only about 30 minutes to walk to the city centre. The room was spacious, clean and bright. The breakfast was... More

We really enjoyed our time at Backsteiner Hof. We stayed for 4 nights at this beautiful place. The location is very good. A working farmhouse with splendid vieuws over the mountains and apple fields. The center of Merano is about 20 min of easy walk. You can also take a bus, close to the Hof, but because the walk is... More

I still miss waking up to freshly baked cakes, ham, cheeses,... More

If heaven was a place on earth, then it would surely be the Baecksteinerhof in Merano. Seriously, I could have not wished for anything better. With only two reviews on TripAdvisor we felt that it was a bit of a gamble, so we only booked three nights here, and my only regret is that we haven't spent the entire holidays... More

We found a good review about this farmhouse in the Italian TA page so we gave it a chance. We stayed there only 2 days (came back yesterday!) but would have liked to stay more! The farm is in a very pleasant position, just outside and above Merano surrounded by appletrees. We were given a room in the "mansarda" which... More
