#1 of 4 hotels in Trafoi
Getting away from it all - at one with nature The Bella Vista in Trafoi is one of South Tyrol's most popular family hotels. Located directly at the slopes, this Alpine boutique hotel offers dreamlike views, a delightful atmosphere, great food ... And very happy families.A traditional hotel at heart, the Bella Vista has been meticulously renovated in a modern style, without sacrificing its rich history. Relax in the Stube parlor and lounge, bask in the warmth of an open fireplace, marvel at the picture-perfect scenery through oversized windows and enjoy exquisite food and wine. A stay at the Bella Vista is a sensory experience that makes the most of Mother Nature's beauty and purity. So we hope that you'll, in turn, make the most of everything we have to offer. We look forward to meeting you, Gustav Thoni, his family and the entire Bella Vista team

Top Gear named the Stelvio pass as one of the best driving roads. They failed to mention the views in the area. We stayed at the Bella Vista for one evening. The hotel staff were wonderful and the food was spectacular.

Post an early morning drive from Bolzano to climb the epic mountain road to the summit of the Stelvio Pass, we descended to Trafoi and pulled into the Hotel Bella Vista. We decided to eat breakfast after a small snack at the summit. The buffet spread included everything you would expect and more. The sunny eggs were perfect, meats and cheeses, and fresh baked goods. The coffee machine “coffee” was delicious and endless. The view from the restaurant was breathtaking. The staff so helpful and friendly. Didn’t stay but I can only guess it would have been first class.

What a find! This 3-star resort hotel run by Gustav Thoeni (of 1970's Italian skiing Olympic and World Cup fame) and his family. The setting in Trafoi near the foot of the Stelvio Pass has a beautiful mountain setting. It is a very comfortable hotel with a lovely dining room. The staff, including members of his family, treat their visitors more like family guests than passing tourists. We booked an upgraded room that had a lovely small sitting room off the bedroom that faced the spectacular snowed capped mountains to the south. The place is not fancy but rather homey and well kept with modern amenities including decent wi-fi. Given its remoteness, it is better to book half board since there did not appear to be any restaurants nearby (though one can choose dinner for any day if you want). The dinner is a 5 course pre-set meal (for which they can make substitutions if there is something you cannot eat). Each night they had wine recommendations if you wanted to order wine. The food was definitely lovingly homemade and graciously served. We loved our time here and would come back in a minute. Note to those traveling with children - this hotel goes out of its way to entertain children including serving them an early children's dinner (at a low children's table ) if you wish. They also have a children's menu.

Stayed one night befored driving the Stelvio pass which starts just up the road. The location is remote and stunning. Room fairly basic but perfectly acceptable. 5 course set dinner surprisingly good, menu in German despite being in Italy. Breakfast good too. Probably fits better for a winter stay but no complaints from us at all

We were a group of 16 cars and stopped overnight at the BellaVista before driving the Stelvio Pass the next morning. The staff were very friendly, the food great and the rooms very good. The views were spectacular with good safe parking for the cars. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our large group and were very helpful in changing meal times to suit us. It's a great family hotel and we would highly recommend it. Not super luxury but very comfortable and definitely has everything you need and a very warm welcome.
