We stayed here a while ago but I neglected to post a review. We loved this property; it was an under-the-radar kind of swanky, beautifully understated; i would call it quiet elegance. The food was absolutely beyond delicious! The pool and the outdoor area of the property were perfectly appointed and nicely landscaped; not to mention the idyllic Vineyard setting. I would highly recommend this hotel for something a bit different from the norm.
A quest for relaxation after a tricky summer led me to Hotel Schwarzschmied. As I booked a last-minute deal for a one week solo holiday, I was looking for a quiet hotel with a nice spa and good hiking opportunities. Schwarzschmied far exceeded my expectations - what a great place to "switch off"! The hotel enjoys some foundational advantages: it is located in Lana, an ideal starting point for hikes in the entire area of Merano and the Vigiljoch mountain. A few lovely guided hikes are offered by the hotel every week; other destinations in the area can be easily reached by public transport,cable car, by bicycle or by car. Schwarzschmied builds on this foundation with a superb set of amenities: modern, elegant, quiet rooms, great sauna facilities, a yoga room (in which wonderful daily classes are offered, plus the possibility to self-practice), etc., all enhancing the convenience of the stay. But it is the hospitality and care of the staff that make this hotel special. Most hotels want you to believe that they are your home away from home; at Schwarzschmied, I believe this. Starting with the room upgrade to the Garden Wing upon my arrival - close to the yoga studio and the spa, which I had enquired about before - which was so very attentive and personable. It set the tone for all my subsequent encounters with the hotel staff. From the receptionists to the restaurant staff, everyone was friendly, helpful and highly professional. There was never anything left to be desired. I'd like to extend my compliments to the kitchen crew as well: The food was consistently delicious and beautifully presented. Dinner was something to look forward to every day (which I can't say for some other, more upscale hotels that I've stayed at...). Finally, a special thanks to massage therapist Andrea for her amazing deep tissue work and valuable advice. It made me wish I had booked more treatments... next time, hopefully! After a week at Schwarzschmied and the beautiful Merano area, my batteries are recharged and my soul is refreshed. I hope to return and cannot recommend the hotel highly enough. Well done staff and management, keep up this refreshingly high standard!…
I stayed here for a short trip to a local event and was very pleased to discover the focus on wellbeing. The room was spacious with a small balcony, with a sitting area to relax which being a solo traveler was useful. I was impressed by the healthy food options at all meals and delighted to be able to juice some veggies at breakfast. There is a lovely spa and large sauna as well as outdoor pool. The location I’m the small town of Lana means you can walk everywhere. The staff were helpfu
We were a family of 4 adults (parents and grandparents) and 2 young children. We travel a lot, and this might have been one of our most favorite hotels we have ever visited. The food was delicious, the rooms comfortable, the spa and pool fantastic, the grounds beautiful, the staff wonderful, the style impeccable...I could go on and on. We loved the pool, the yoga, the treatments, every single meal... The setting is gorgeous and the town of Lana is great for walking around, and the hikes near the hotel were also great. Though the setting is mostly geared to adults, our kids felt welcomed. If this were closer to us then I think we'd probably come back every year.
Amazing surroundings, calm and friendly atmosphere, lovely interior, the most helpful and friendly staff and the food is beyond description! This was my second stay but definitely not the last. Already looking forward to the next time.
