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!
