This was my first time in Bolzano, which was a wonderful surprise. Love the place and will go back.
This hotel, which I sadly was in for just one night, is right across from the train station and next to a park that still had a Christmas market up.
I had a lovely room with two twin beds pushed together. Not sure they have any queen/kings. The service was quite good and the property a lovely Art Nouveau gem with great architectural and interior features. The interiors in the rooms and halls are a bit dated, but nothing that new carpet, some updated paint colours and perhaps updated furniture wouldn’t fix.
The restaurant for breakfast was quite good — the best on my trip. I believe it has a good reputation for dinner, although I didn’t eat there.
Our room was perfectly appointed, spacious and spotless.
The hotel is a short walk from the station and the centre of town making it the perfect spot for the Christmas market. Breakfast was delicious with a range of Austrian and Italian treats in a beautiful dining room. Will stay again and recommend to friends and family.
Parkhotel Laurin is right in the center of Bozano, closes to town square and Duomo. Also, because we went there just before New Year, we got to enjoy Christmas market which was at the square.
We booked a double rooms and they were on the top floor (5th). The rooms were very spacious with huge marble bathroom.
Some rooms were more old-fashion than others. Mine had classic style furniture and round windows which I found very charming. I really like their old styled elevator with cushion seating, the kids loved it.
The breakfast was great with large selections of beverages, dairy, breads, cheese, cold cuts as well as eggs and bacon.
The location, welcome, and property were all outstanding.
Our room was elegant and had every amenity. Bolzano at Christmas time is just spectacular; we knew the Market was famous but the whole inner city was lavishly decorated. Highly recommended – we’ve stayed at hotels much more expensive but never more beautiful and satisfactory.
