Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The centrally-located Hotel Meranerhof has been lovingly maintained by the Eisenkeil family since 1966. This superior Art Nouveau property celebrates the style of the golden age of Italian splendour. Think marble columns, elegant gold leaf wall paper, hand crafted drapes, Persian rugs and crystal chandeliers.

The guest rooms are elegant yet simple with tones of cream and mahogany and a blend of the modern and traditional style unique to the hotel. The extensive spa features an indoor pool, Finnish sauna and grand Roman spa as well as giving you easy access to the famous thermal baths of Merano, which are located just across the road (local fees apply).

The hotel’s luscious gardens are surrounded by the southern Tyrolean mountain ranges with the peaks of Mutspitze, Hirzer and Tschigat providing some of the most breath taking scenery Merano has to offer. Dinner is served in a gorgeous glass ceiling atrium with the possibility to sit out on the terrace in the warmer months. Chef Arno Fritz and his team create phenomenal cuisine using local produce to offer both traditional and more daring fares such as grilled sea bass with artichoke compote or venison salt baked with smoked beetroot and fresh barley and of course there is a superb wine list to choose from that complements every dish.

For those looking to explore, there is no shortage of adventure to be had with the likes of the Merano Theatre, Princes' Castle and fine art museum all within walking distance.
