Reviewed June 26, 2010

This is a medium sized hotel in a quiet and attractive little town.
It is easy to find and the staff are very helpful and accommodating.
Underground secure parking and perfect for a motor cycling tour destination, which is how I came to be staying there.
The rooms are spotless and well appointed.
The food is good and the bar area is large and comfortable.
The ambiance of the place is so pleasant that I felt I had to take the trouble to recommend it.
It is decorated in a modern style with plenty of contemporary woodwork which gives it a light and airy feel.

Stayed in the hotel with a coach trip and the best thing was the underground car park for the coaches. We arrived in the rain so it was great to unload all the luggage in the dry. Space for about 8 and we were the sixth so you can imagine how busy the hotel was. Meals were like school dinners. Plenty of food but not of a very high quality and decidedly lacking in imagination. We didn't go hungry but that's about the best you could say for it. The waiters and waitresses were rushed off their feet so it would be unfair to criticize them.

The rooms were OK. Bathroom and bedlinen were clean but the carpet was grubby and the bed was too hard for me! Our room was at the back so was quiet but the people in the rooms that faced onto the road were awoken by the traffic by 6am. The village had a few nice shops but was in no way picturesque and the one road was so busy it had subways!

There were 2 swimming pools. One on the roof which wasn't heated but had great views and a nice heated pool in the basement.

I must preface by saying that I rarely give poor reviews for the hotels I stay at - that's mostly because my thorough homework here on TA, but the Hotel Ideal Park is a cavernous, tour-bus catering hotel that is overpriced and institutional.

The positive parts were the pleasant, friendly and professional staff, especially at the front desk. The hotel was overall quite clean, well maintained and had most all the amenities you would expect. There was plenty of safe, free, subterranean parking and many of the rooms had nice views of the surrounding mountains.

The negatives were the location; this hotel is not in Bolzano, it's 11km (20 minutes) outside the city in Leifers. The road is under construction and traffic along this route can be troublesome. The breakfast buffet was in a word, sparse. A small assortment of industrialized cold, sliced meat products and bread products as well as a small bowl of canned mixed fruit, some dry cereal and a few fruit juices that all tasted the same. There was a guy preparing omelettes, greasy as they were.

In a vestibule between the main elevators and the lobby, they strategically placed a few gaming (slot) machines (think Nevada truck stop style), complete with the annoying 'ding, ding, dings' - which were quite popular with a few people who spent their entire vacation staring at these things - smoking their cigarettes - indoors. Hey, guys, this is Italy. Smoking indoors is illegal and it sure disturbs everyone else - someone's got to step up and tell them they can't smoke.

Our room was 99 euros for one night - a superior room, 4th floor, facing the south. Very nice view, and everything worked and was in good, like-new condition. No air conditioning in most hotels in Italy during most of the year - but we already knew that. There was a double sink and a 'jacuzzi-style' bathtub, which we never got to use. Satellite TV was 13-inches & 32 channels of Italian or German programming, no CNN or English-language channels, but that's okay with us, as we don't watch TV - the remote control was the standard slimy-type featured at $29 per night motels in the US. Linens were clean and fresh, although nearly all hotels still don't get that you can't wash a kitchen towel with your bath towels - not even once, the grease smell is permanently stuck in the cotton fibers.

Compared to other hotels in the area, Hotel Ideal Park was a little newer and roomier, but not much else had appeal.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a large group tour. We were pleasantly surprised with our accomodations. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were huge by European standards. Our group dined in the hotel for our stay. The meals and service were excellent. I can't say enough good things about the staff. On top of everything, the view was excellent. The rooftop pool and patio were beautiful. There is also an indoor pool, hot tub and sauna. You can stay here with confidence.

We stayed at the Hotel Ideal Park as part of our tour group of over 100 people. The rooms were large, and most had a terrific balcony overlooking the mountains. They have an excellent indoor pool which we enjoyed, and a beautiful outdoor pool that was not open because it was still too cold. We ate dinner in the restaurant which was outstanding, and the breakfast buffet was very nice too.
