10 of the Best Hotels in South Tyrol

Italy's South Tyrol region proves endlessly popular with skiers, thanks to its umpteen snow-clad peaks. Its hotel offering has also piqued our interest…

These are the north Italian hotels to book now

hotel

Gloriette Guesthouse

Oberbozen

Four words: rooftop cantilevered infinity pool. With this having solved your après-ski woes in a flash, you've ample time to take in this boutique holiday refuge - it's mountains-meets-urban design done right.

Address

Via del Paese, 15, 39054 Soprabolzano BZ

hotel

Hotel Miramonti

Merano, Italy

Views (in all directions) veer on the spectacular at Miramonti, a suave hideaway overlooking Merano. We bonded with the place instantly and it's no small wonder why: parts of the Spy Who Loved Me were filmed here.

Bühelwirt

Valle Aurina

Clad in blackened larch wood, Bühelwirt cuts an impressive shape. Framed by lush forests and snow-capped mountains, the hotel's contemporary shape is offset by interiors best defined as "Alpine treehouse".

Address

Am Bühel 30, 39030 St. Jakob im, 39030 Gemeinde Ahrntal, Südtirol

hotel

Hotel Weisses Kreuz

Burgusio

Heritage quarters or contemporary pad? Hotel Weisses Kreuz runs across three properties each occupying a different time period. We're checking in to one of the gothic farmhouses at the hotel's Mansion zum Löwen property - it may be 800 years old, but it's still got it.

Address

Burgusio, 82, 39024 Burgusio BZ

hotel

Schgaguler Hotel

Castelrotto

Clean lines and glass form Schgaguler Hotel, an architectural gem flanked by the Dolomites. While skiing may be the main reason for your trip, skipping out on spa time at the hotel would be a major faux pas.

Address

Via Dolomiti 2 39040 Castelrotto BZ

Das Wanda

Caldaro

This thoroughly stylish, South Tyrolean retreat puts the focus on relaxation. Oenophiles will be just as smitten, thanks to Das Wanda's cellar-clad surrounds.

Address

Via Garnellen, 18, 39052 Caldaro BZ

hotel

Golden Rose Hotel

Senales

Run by the same family for three generations, Golden Rose Hotel has a familial feel (while maintaining a high-level of service). Why not bring your own family and avail of the hotel's self-catering suites in the Palla Bianca annexe.

hotel

Mitterstiller

Auna di Sotto

With views of Bolzano and the Dolomite mountains, this historic farmhouse-turned-B&B is a traditionalist's delight. If Alpine chic is still a thing, then that's precisely what Mitterstiller emotes.

Address

25 Via dei Romani 39054 Auna di Sotto BZ

hotel

Villa Arnica

Lana

With serious grand-manor vibes, this secluded spot is formed of old stone walls and wooden floors hidden beneath carpets, but gets a modern lift thanks to retro furniture and quirky design strokes. Cosy yet cool.

Address

Via Andreas Hofer 8 39011 Lana BZ

1477 Reichhalter

Lana

In the mountainous village of Lana, 1447 Reichhalter is one glam guesthouse. Muted linens in putty colours and salvaged chandeliers create an understated atmosphere and an unassuming air.

Address

Via Macello 2 39011 Lana BZ
