The Gray Bear Hotel is the oldest Hotel in Innichen/San Candido and one of the oldest in the hole Alps. We know the owner since 1462 and we celebrated 550 years of hotel history 2012. This long tradition is emphasized by the fact that our family owns it since 1745. Despite our tradition we have always made an effort to keep up with modern times and design, forever cherishing the antique and seeking the new. We have combined design and history in an harmonically manner. Our guests can enjoy authentically kept rooms furnished from different epochs, for instance our original Restaurant from the fifties, and the late Gothic Hotel Hall. All rooms are furnished in a different style - some rooms modern, some with original 19th. century central European style furniture. We have always tried to find perfection, paying special notice to our kitchen and wine cellar. The kitchen is lead by Star head-chef Cosimo Chirico who has an excellent reputation. The owner Franz Ladinser is a wine specialist himself - and gives his guests advice and help in their choice of wines personally. The town San Candido is a small very old town with Italian flair. The centre is a pedestrian aria with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. Visitors can enjoy a smart and cosy stay. San Candido is the perfect places from where you can start daily trips through landscape from Alta Pusteria with his two national parks "Drei Zinnen" and "Fanes Sennes Prags". Book the hotel Orso Grigio/Grauer Bar and You will have an unforgettable holiday.

Andrea C wrote a review Dec 2023

The convenience is obvious, you are in the center of San Candido, an elegant resort in Val Venosta with shops, restaurants and sport equipment venues of all sorts. The rooms are comfortable, nice large bathrooms and modern wood paneling makes for a cosy and neat space. The restaurant is the best part of the experience if you decide to opt for the half board: every evening three different menus, vast well sorted salads and cheese buffet, service discrete but never stiff, dishes are creative, beautifully presented and VERY good. The owner even organised a wine tasting for the guests. Value is also an attribute I would choose here because you have free steam bath and sauna, absolute silence and fast free internet, plus a snow shoes all day event with a professional guide. So everything was perfect ? Almost, the only minor observation: the charger for our Tesla was capable of working with 22 KW but was limited at 4, meaning longer charging times. No biggie. Great experience, recommended.

A warm, small and refined place where the host Franz and his team are aligned to each other to level up your vacation.
They all exceeded our expectations in hospitality by their thoughtfulness, kindness, devotion and generosity. The staff made sure to make us feel welcome at any given moment, a little chat with them always made Orso Grigio feel like a home during our stay.
Also, we were overwhelmed by their sophisticated delicious dining and intimate wine tasting with the owner.
Thank you for giving us an unforgettable experience! A place we recommend to everyone. A place we will long remember.

From the moment you walk into this hotel, you'll wish you could stay a month. This hotel is the essence of charming. The lobby is large with gorgeous period chairs to sit in. A guest is greeted with ice water and nibbles. The lobby opens into a tea room where one can find tea and snacks. The staff are friendly and you'll surely be greeted by the owner who has worked hard at making this hotel comfortable and grand. The bedrooms are different sizes and decors. If you're lucky, you'll get one with a view of the plaza and beyond that, an extremely tall, rugged part of the Alps right outside of town. Breakfast was plentiful with home made pastries, fresh jams, fruits, eggs made to order all placed in an elegant setting. Didn't eat a dinner here, but I have no doubt it would be spectacular.

Perfection ! We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel and it was an amazing experience at San Candido. Receptionist and the Owner greated us upon entry with a big smile and ready to help. We asked for some tips around the small town and was offered a free bike rental which we did take. Also we opted for the wine tasting with the owner himself and it was a fantastic experience.

Beds were very comfortable and hotel room view was amazing. The room was spotless. Will definitely return to this hotel once at San Candido :)!

This hotel is fabulous - the staff are really warm and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble! The dining room is candlelit, which makes a wonderful atmosphere. The food is fabulous at both breakfast and dinner. Lovely touches everyday with cake and aperitif or hot wine. A really relaxing experience. Bedroom was lovely, brilliant shower. Real fire in lobby and a gentle soft atmosphere to sit and read a book with an aperitif. The owner Franz is charming and engaging and takes time to talk to all of the guests. Really worth a visit for a truly relaxing getaway in a pretty town in the mountains.

The service on this hotel was exceptional. Sofia was very helpful and she always smiled while helping me. The location was right in the center and the beds were very comfortable. The tea snacks at 4 pm were also a treat. Simply a great hotel to stay at.

After a couple of hours spent browsing in the clean and tidy San Candido, we've been attracted by the hotel. The restaurant menu was inviting and offered a four-courses menu for €. 38, or different combinations of its parts for proportional prices.
The hall with its fireplace and armchairs was cosy and a nice staff took care of our reservation.
The owner personally welcomed us later and let us into the dining room, which appeared clean, comfortable and quiet as well.
The atmosphere was informal, but in no way inelegant. Everybody spoke softly and lights were relaxing without being sombre.
The hors d'oeuvre and salad buffet were varied and abundant. First and main courses were excellent, although not that abundant , which I noted being promptly offered more.
Cheese selection and sweet were very good and the wine list was really first rate as regards local products (Sanct Valentin, Lowengang, Cornell among excellent others).
Being not far accomodated in our holiday home, we'll unlikely have the opportunity to test hotel's rooms, but we'll remember with pleasure the evening spent there and would like to go again for dining.
