Boutique & Design Hotel ImperialArt
In this 1899 Art Nouveau building situated in the center of Merano, there was first a cafe, later a trendy 70s-pub, and today an art hotel. Three artists from Merano have created a total work of art with unique rooms in different colours and style collections: the pompous “Bristol” room that is reminiscent of a luxury hotel in the 50s, brightly coloured like the “Imperial” room in the style of the old Cafe Imperial from the 70s, and the minimalist and pure “White and Gold Crystal” room. In some rooms even the TV forms part of the art. Two penthouse art rooms on the fourth floor each have a private terrace with hot tub and panoramic views over the rooftops of Merano. Another art room on the third floor has a jacuzzi; nine further rooms are elaborately equipped with a balcony. The café is still the most popular meeting point of the city: redesigned and renamed, you can have breakfast with locals in the café CoffeeArt. For hotel guests, entry to the contemporary art gallery and the Therme Meran (both are 50 meters from the hotel) is included in the price.
What to do
Therme Meran, Kunst Merano, historic Kurhaus, Trautmannsdorf Castle and the botanical gardens, numerous castles and museums in the area.
