The highlights at one glance

Jewel in the Dolomites: The Bavaria and its partner Hotel Palma, located in the hills above Merano, are shining examples of older properties brought back to days of grandeur. The staff is very accommodating, the charming dining room could not be nicer, the cuisine first rate. Enjoy breakfast on the covered patio with its retractable awning, together with a buffet of meats, cheeses, fruit, many bread choices and always pleasant service. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and the pool is a refreshing relaxation spot after a day spent hiking the surrounding mountains. This charming jewel is a can't miss; we have returned 5 times to spend a week there. In sum, this is a winner.

Super nice: The hotel itself is very well managed. The gardens and pool areas are immaculate. The rooms are very clean and bathrooms are in perfect shape. The hotel retains its old charm by using some ‘old school’ furniture and the traditional hotel keys. The manager is super attentive and you can see it is well managed. Food also very good.

Elegance: We have stayed here many times. The manager is extremely helpful, speaks perfect English, overall nice guy. The food is delicious, beautiful grounds with indoor and outdoor pool! New bathrooms and hardwood floors. Great location near the main promenades of this beautiful city.

A romantic hotel in picturesque surroundings: The hotel is located in a beautiful part of the city of Merano, Italy, only 50 meters from the city center with the river Passiria and Park Elisabeth on the opposite side of the street. I am travelling with my motorcycle and I must say they took good care of that, letting me have it parked secured and safe at the entrance of the hotel, next to the lobby. Breakfast was served at the terrace and you could have dinner at the hotel’s restaurant as well. In the afternoon they served patisseries at no extra cost.

Superb location: I cannot think of anything that I disliked. The staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous hotel with half-board as a bonus – great meals. Beautiful setting – Merano is a delightful area.


Exceptional: location, staff, room, pool.
