I have stayed 4 days with my girlfriend in the end of december '08. We were looking for a hotel on the mountains with wellness spa, just to get away ftom the city life and have a little relaxing holiday,
The location is wonderful, very quiet, next to Merano,...
Hotel is nice in general...They are 4 stars, under my opinion is 3 superior, but everything clean, nice restaurant, excellent views,,,,
The disappointing part of our stay is the next:
1-I can not understand why they don't speak italian. I'm spanish and I live in Italy, Merano is in Italy, and people from Alto Adige/Sudtirol do not speak Italian even if they are italians!!Incredible... JUst the girl from the reception, the owner and 2 waiters spoke italian. Almost all the informations in the hotel are in deustch, I couldn't use the gym cause all the machines had the computer menu in deutsch!!
Their response to all this is that they receive lots of deutsch bookings, but sincerely, I don't care... IF THEY ARE IN ITALY, THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE IS THE ITALIAN! ( and I tell you again, I am spanish, imagine what italian people feels about this)
2- The Spa area is quiet old. Is not bad, but everything is very used and sauna, turkish bath and swimming pools are not so good. My girlfriend booked some massages and she recognised that were really good. So the main problem is the equipment.
3- Try to avoid the periods like christmas...It is crowd of families. Too many children in the hotel = too much noise!
There is no control from the hotel staff to mantain the relax in the Spa area. In The swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, etc there is always some kid breaking the b_ lls of somebody,,,,
Anyway, the rest was quite good...
The room, friendly staff, food, etc,,,But I would not suggest this hotel to my friends for the last reasons.
