Reviewed 14 July 2017

We returned to this beautiful hotel in early June 2017, following our wonderful experience there in May/June last year. This was our sixth consecutive visit to Meran, and the second to the Adria. It fully lived up to our high expectations. The food (breakfast, dinner and the drinks and cakes laid out in the afternoon) was again top quality, with a great variety of dishes, most locally sourced and always deliciously fresh and delightfully presented. The wine list was as carefully chosen as we remembered - and the prices seemed to be identical (in Euros) to those last year, which was a relief given the pain of the post Brexit exchange rate. We were presented with a complimentary bottle of chilled Prosecco on our first evening, possibly as returning guests or because we were celebrating our wedding anniversary - we weren't quite sure, but it was a lovely gesture.

Another particularly nice touch was the welcome sheet with an introduction to every member of the Adria team, from the staff at reception and in the restaurant with whom we were most familiar to those behind the scenes cleaning and maintaining the hotel. We have never seen this approach before, but it seemed to us consistent with the trust and goodwill shared between Herr Ellmenreich and his excellent team. We would again like to thank Günther, our waiter, for his exceptional service.

June was hot, and this grand old hotel really came into its own. It has high ceilings, well-positioned windows which draw fresh air through the building, and is constructed from solid, quality materials, including marble flooring. We would step from the heat of the town into the cool of the hotel and feel instantly relaxed.

In sum, the Adria is the perfect hotel for us, as a couple who enjoy day hikes in the glorious mountains around Meran(o) and then want to return to a place where excellent food, wine, service and facilities are guaranteed. We have booked for June 2018 already!

Beautiful classic hotel with great history and one of the oldest hotels in Meran settled in a quiet upscale neighbourhood of villas. Very helpful staff and very clean rooms. One can feel the hospitality tradition that is celebrated here since decades. The spa and pool area is a great plus. Hotel also offers its own regular (for free) and electric bicycles (small fee). We will definitely come back here any time again.

Room Tip: one should definitely book a room with balcony to enhance your stay

This was our fifth consecutive visit to Meran(o) in the spring. We've stayed three times at the Park Hotel Mignon - the glorious but increasingly expensive five-star sister to the four-star Adria - and once at the much cheaper but very agreeable three-star Salgart. We chose the Adria this year on the Goldilocks principle, and it was indeed just right. The highlight was probably the food - delicious Alpine breakfasts and a superb array of options at dinner, with appetisers and a pasta and risotto buffet complementing the courses served at the table. Almost everything seemed to be locally sourced and of the highest quality. Our waiter, Gunther, was exceptional - charming, amusing, unobtrusive but efficient, always aware of when we were ready for food or wine, and a great source of advice on the latter. The hotel has a terrific wine list, by the way, very reasonably priced (at least it was before the pound tanked!).

We were very happy with our room, the friendliness of the owner (Herr Ellmenreich) and his staff and the wider hotel and its facilities - especially the swimming pool after our days spent in the mountains. Meran(o) is blessed with a huge range of hiking options in the various nearby valleys, and the excellent integrated transport system makes it easy to venture long distances, secure in the knowledge that you will be back in time for dinner. Although the Adria is outside the centre of the town and some way from the station, it is well situated for bus stops.

We booked our June 2017 holiday at the Adria as soon as we returned home.

Relaxed, attentive, courteous and friendly this hotel was a real pleasure to stay in. No aircon in our rooms though we didn't need it. Nice buildings and convenient location for town centre. Restaurant was particularly nice and we had our own table throughout.

The hotel is in a lovely classical building with pretty gardens and terraces.
Service is excellent and we were given lots of helpful advice about hiking too.
The loungers in the garden next to the pool and outdoor jacuzzi were very welcome after a hot day's sightseeing. The meals are fabulous, the half board is especially good value. Would return, lovely hotel in pretty town.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for a deluxe room with balcony if you are staying a few days.
