Reviewed July 28, 2007

We stayed at the Hotel Post-Gries for two nights mid July. We had a triple room, which was reasonable in size and very clean. However, there was no air-conditioning. Based on the previous review, we expected air-conditioning but after reviewing our reservation at check-in it wasn't confirmed so it may be that some rooms have it and some don't. The front desk clerk kindly brought in a fan and (and also moved us to a more quiet room upon request). We slept somewhat comfortably, but it should be noted that it is quite hot during July in this region.

The hotel has bikes you can rent for free, which is a great way to see the area. It has some stunning scenary and the nearby park is not to be missed.

Breakfast is included in the room rate and it is above average.

Overall I highly recommend the hotel for those looking for value and don't mind being a bit away from the city center.

We generally rely upon Trip Advisor to help in the decision making process when selecting hotels. This is particularly true when booking in locations where we know very little or nothing at all. We based our decision on information found at ---. The reviews seemed quite positive and the price was right. This hotel proved to be the correct choice. Our correspondence was by email and this hotel was the only one out of four in which we stayed on our trip that never asked for a deposit or even a credit card number. It is quite close to the old city of Bolzano. Actually it is a 10-15 minute walk to the old city. The hotel is quick to point out that they are 700 meters from the old city.

The front desk staff at the hotel were very kind and helpful. When I asked for the nearest internet café the gentleman at the desk allowed me to use his wireless laptop. (try finding the letter “y” on a German keyboard) Parking is plentiful and easy. They have access to an underground lot a block or so away. Our room was on the fourth floor. Bear in mind that the lift only goes to the third floor and you walk the one flight of stairs to the fourth level. I believe that we had room 77. It was spacious, beautifully appointed and had terrific views of the mountains. The room was air conditioned and had very modern electric shutters.

Breakfast was fine and we had dinner in the restaurant on the second night. The food was very good, especially the Wiener schnitzel. Bolzano is very Austrian and the primary language spoken is an Austrian dialect of German. Why then no previous Trip Advisor reviews? My sense is that this hotel caters primarily to Europeans. They can accommodate tours, mostly from Austria, Germany and other European countries. They have separate dining facilities for dinner and breakfast so that you never feel crowed. This was a very pleasant stay in a city that has much to offer. In addition Bolzano (Bozen) is the gateway to the magnificent Dolomite Mountains that simply should not be missed. We have no hesitations in recommending this hotel. As an aside, we had a wonderful dinner in the old city in a restaurant called Pra Meisa. The food and ambience come highly recommended. Just Google the name and you will find the review that sent us there.
