Review: Boutique Hotel Zenana In The Italian Dolomites


Book A Stay

In the heart of the Dolomites, nature truly breathes, and each season brings its own lights and colors to the alpine slopes. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, these mountain ranges in South Tyrol are unlike any on earth. Explore vertical walls, cliffs, and deep valleys; take in panoramic views of jagged, granite peaks.

A stay in the Dolomites is even more rewarding when your lodgings are comfortable and cultured. Zenana Boutique Hotel effortlessly delivers just that for the discerning traveler.


Sitting quietly on a pedestrian street in the town of San Candido, Zenana is a charming luxury boutique hotel with an intimate atmosphere and attentive, family-run service. Located conveniently nearby to shops, restaurants, bars, a pharmacy, and a supermarket, the hotel is a 5-minute walk from chairlifts that whisk you away for hiking and skiing excursions. A buffet-style breakfast is served every morning in the cozy dining room or brought to your door at your request.

If traveling by plane, the only airport in South Tyrol is the Bolzano Airport, and you can reach San Candido from there by shuttle or by rental car. Other airports located relatively close by include Munich, Venice, and Bergamo, and you can get to San Candido from these airports by rail, bus, or car.

Rent a car for a scenic drive on the Brennero Motorway A22 to get to your destination! Take exit Bressanone – Val Pusteria, and continue on the national road for about 60 km to Alta Pusteria. You will not regret the beautiful panoramic views!

Style & Character

Built at the beginning of the last century, Zenana has been carefully renovated and redecorated with a hint of art nouveau style. The decor is gorgeous with each room personalized with items collected by your host, Anna.


There are nine deluxe suites on Zenana’s three floors, all named after diverse furnishing and accents curated during the owners’ travels. The decoration of each room is completely unique, but all include parquet floors, ensuite bathrooms, televisions, safes, and breathtaking mountain views.

The unique decor of Zenana reflects a deep love for travel and cultures around the world, and rich tradition is presented along with modern amenities.

Service & Facilities

The Dolomites are for the outdoorsmen, and the Zenana Boutique Hotel is the perfect launching point for mountain biking, hiking, adventure rock climbing, or skiing during winter months.

If crystal-clear mountain lakes, streams, or waterfalls are more suited to your taste, visit Val Pusteria for a day surrounded by water.
