This is smaller hotel located in the middle of a very small village. We arrived here by bus 261 from Naturno. The bus stop is near the hotel about 20 meters. It is a newly renovated exquisitely beautiful hotel in a magical little place, a small village between tall peaks.
We had a fantastic large completely renovated room and a balcony with furniture. The view was against other houses in the village. The room was wonderfully bright with light beautiful wood, the floors were amazing. The room had a mini-bar, a safe and a TV with some international channels. The wifi was free and worked well. The color scheme was beautiful and sober.
We had a large amazing bathroom with shower. The design was modern and beautiful with lots of wood details.
In the afternoons at 15-17, free afternoon tea with cakes is served. The range of both tea and cakes was great. It's good to sit in the dining room or in the lovely garden. The garden had plenty of lounge armchairs and colorful flowers.
Breakfast was served from 07:00. For breakfast you could order a hot egg dish from a menu. In addition, a fantastic buffet with many local specialties was served. There were bread, muesli, bio joghurt, local cheeses, salami, ham and different cakes. The juice was freshly squeezed. The coffee was served at the table.
We had half board and thus we also had dinner at the hotel. The dinner was served at 19.00 and consisted of a five course menu where you chose between different options from a menu. The dishes were beautifully presented and consisted of good ingredients. Local specialties were also served. The restaurant was cozy, nice and decorated in an old style. The hotel also has a bar and a nice sauna area.
This is definitely one of the best hotels we have ever visited in the whole world. The newly renovated room was one of the most beautiful we have ever seen and very clean and fresh. All the staff we met were helpful and pleasant. We highly recommend this hotel which is also spectacularly located far into a valley.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Golden Rose: the surprise of a 4-star hotel as authentic as its valley The jewel of the Senales Valley: the Golden Rose is a 4-star hotel that has retained the flavor of an old-world inn. Managed by the Grüner family for three generations, the hotel has kept pace with the times without losing its strong historical roots. Here, the warmth of wood lifts the spirit, ancient fabrics come to life in new colors and shapes, tradition reigns yet is continually alive, in utter keeping with the modern world. Past and present in perfect harmony Juval Castle, the ancient fortification that is now home to mountain climbing legend Reinhold Messner, dominates the entrance to the precipitous Val Senales just 30 km west of Merano. The valley ascends towards the glaciers of the Ötztal Alps and the hamlet of Certosa, where the ancient Allerengelberg Cartusian Monastery was located. This is a valley with a strong character, dominated by Alpine landscapes as unique as they are varied. The gamut runs from the verdant pastures of the valley all the way up to Hochjochferner Glacier, from the charm of little villages to the landscapes of high mountains. ... more less
