Steinach Townhouse, Meran, Italy: A never ending Lovestory
Merano: for many, it’s love at first sight. That’s exactly how it was for Milan native and designer Roger Botti who, many years ago, fell in love with what was then a run down Merano townhouse. What became of it? It was transformed into a romantic hideaway in the heart of the old town. We present five townhouse facts that are sure to set guests’ hearts aflutter.
The personal touch is the new chic
The Steinach Townhouse is less of a hotel, and much more of a very lovingly and personally furnished private home, where every picture, every piece of furniture and every decorative object has a story to tell. Designer pieces have been skilfully combined with the latest in modern comfort by the owners. As Roger Botti reveals, it “brought great joy to renovate and furnish the old house”.
Suites for my sweets
As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” Great attention has been paid to the eight suites at the Steinach Townhouse. Measuring between 55 and 65 square metres, the individually designed suites offer ample space, they all have the perfect indoor climate whether it’s summer or winter, and of course the double beds are extremely comfortable. Soft duvets and a range of pillows ensure the sweetest of dreams.
The way to a man's heart is through the stomach
Breakfast isn’t just a meal. On the menu at the Steinach Townhouse are culinary delights like pancakes, porridge with nuts and fresh fruit, smoked fish with horseradish and chutney, freshly pressed juices and sausages from South Tyrol. Great emphasis is placed on the origin of the individual products – they have to be regional and seasonal. Everything is served by the international Townhouse team in the hotel’s bistro, or in your suite on request.
Location is (nearly) everything
Have you been to Merano? No? Then what are you waiting for?! The Steinach Townhouse is located in the oldest part of Merano, away from the hustle and bustle but only a stone’s throw from the lively Laubengasse and the beautiful promenade along the Passer. The Steinach neighbourhood around the Townhouse is popular mainly with artists, and the paths leading towards it draw you up the hill for extended strolls with spectacular views.
True love in all seasons
The Steinach Townhouse is the perfect holiday destination in spring, summer, autumn and winter! Open all year round for its guests, you can keep discovering Merano and the surrounding area anew at any time of year. Spring and early summer are ideal for long mountain or bike tours, golf and shopping. At the peak of summer, the many lakes, the high mountain areas and the warm city nights are what attract visitors.
