We won the italian tv-show "4 hotel" by bruno barbieri

this is what winners look like

In February 2021 we had the unique opportunity to participate in the Italian famous TV - reality program” 4 Hotel - Bruno Barbieri”. Four different hotels evaluate each other in various categories during a stay. The categories are location, room, service (meaning especially the included services) breakfast and price. The program is hosted by the internationally well-known chef Bruno Barbieri, who also has the final word in the ratings. It is broadcast exclusively on Sky.

In addition to our hotel, which was presented by our boss Jutta, there were also Florian from Odles Lodge in Bressanone, Stefano from Hotel Schloss Hörtenberg in Bolzano and Alexander from Paradiso Pure Living Hotel on the Alpe di Siusi.

The stay in Merano began for the competitors with the check-in and inspection of the rooms (one of our rooms was able to score a 10 as a rating, which happens very rarely!). Afterwards Florian, Stefano and Alexander relaxed in the thermals baths of Merano, while Bruno Barbieri had dressed himself in Tyrolean garb at our partner store Runggaldier. He said "I would totally rock this leather pants outfit in Milan, too!"


As in every hotel, Bruno Barbieri had a special, unannounced task for us. He wanted birthday decorations in the room for his return after the shopping tour. Keyword: green. Of course, as always, we put in a great deal of work - surprises are one of our strengths- and decorated the room with countless green balloons, green chocolate balls, green vases, green cake and green candles! It couldn´t get any greener!

When Bruno Barbieri returned from his tour and saw the surprise in the room, he sent Jutta for him right away. He wanted to tell her personally how great we had done his assignment!

The next morning, the day began with a comfortable breakfast in our Cafè CoffeeArt, with creamy cappuccino and South Tyrolean delicacies. After breakfast, our guests picked up the bill and then rated their stay. Of course secretly, because only at the end of the week the preliminary ranking was revealed. In this preliminary ranking, the notes of Bruno Barbieri were still missing, who could confirm or change the ranking with his points.

After the preliminary ranking was announced to the hosts at the meeting at Maretsch Castle in Bolzano, all the hosts returned to their hotels and waited with all the employees excited for the final result: the hotel where the car of "4 Hotel" with Bruno Barbieri will drive by is the final winner.

As we were standing and waiting in front of our hotel, we saw a car drive by in our direction - and couldn't believe our eyes lastly! It was indeed the car of "4 Hotel" with Bruno Barbieri on board, who congratulated us on our victory. Yeah!
