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

Gloriette Guesthouse

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.

Miramonti Boutique Hotel

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.


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”.

Hotel Weisses Kreuz

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.

Schgaguler Hotel

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.

Das Wanda

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.

Golden Rose Hotel

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.


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.

Villa Arnica

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.

1477 Reichhalter

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.
