Five generations and more than a century of hospitality service
professionalism at the service of our guests
The great-grandfather, Antonio Meneghini, opened the first hotel in Molveno in 1890; the first tourists were excellent mountain climbers. They breached the peaks, thus opening the first access roads that still carry their names.
The grandparents, Firmo and Marina, renovated the hotel by giving the name "Alpino - Alle Dolomiti di Brenta". They dedicated their entire life to the guest service, originated at that time from Austria, Germany, and Holland and of course from various regions of Italy.
The bar and restaurant of the Alpine hotel in Trentino remained open even in winter for passers-by and the inhabitants; it was an obligatory stop for salesmen, for the doctor, for the Carabinieri etc .. because traveling by public transport was very difficult.
During World War II, the Alpine hotel, being in Trentino, was occupied by German officers coming towards the repatriation, but grandmother Marina that spoke German was able to manage better the dramatic situation and, therefore, some officials kept friendly relations until the 80s and came also on vacation with their families.
The premature death of the grandfather, the administration the Alpine hotel passed to the grandmother and her daughters Amedea and Wally, until 1984, the year of closure for reasons related to the location and the diversified needs of customers. It would not be possible to enlarge and renovate that crumbling building so, in the meantime, in 1974, was built the Hotel Alle Dolomiti in location named ISCHIA (hence was its first name) and was opened in 1976 by Wally and her daughter Pia and son-in-law Renato, qualified and appreciated chef.
Pia and Renato (also coming from a hoteliers lineage) have formed a new family by making Wally a grandmother of two granddaughters. She was head of the company until 2005, divesting then the management to her daughter and son-in-law.
Today, with their perfect cooperation, Serena and Chiara work alongside their parents, reinforcing a tradition of love for the hospitality and welcoming.
The strong family imprint remains the feature of this House that is appreciated by the guest feeling himself comfortable.
