The Vibe: Minimalist design in a 16th-century inn.
The Area: Situated on the market square in the centre of medieval and walled Glurns (Glorenza in Italian) in South Tyrol. The hotel is located in the heart of the Val Venosta ski area. The Stelvio Pass, the highest mountain range in Italy, is just a few kilometres away.
The DNA: Hotel Gasthof Grüner Baum, dating from 1500, offers decisively contemporary styled rooms. The frescoed walls harbour a fresh, contemporary design. Serene, mature and endlessly chic, the Grüner Baum caters to those seeking a decent dose of rest and relaxation, with an added sprinkling of medieval magic. The hotel is mentioned in numerous architectural and tourism guides and won various awards. Restored turn of the century furniture pieces and ornate boiserie panelling marry effortlessly with modern bespoke lighting fixtures, pale wooden interiors, subtle shades and curvaceous expanses of satin glass, while the parapet rooftop boasts magnificent views of monasteries, mountains and medieval architecture as far as the eye can see. The restaurant serves regional cuisine and wines. The spa and wellness area offers a sauna, hammam, jacuzzi, relaxation area and outdoor rooftop terrace.
Suite-Me-Up: Every room is individually furnished with a love for detail and provides an architectonic jewel. Restored furniture dating back to the turn of the century and modern architecture make up a unique atmosphere.
