Our friends booked a room for us in this hotel. However hotel seems too formal a word for the Klammerhof. It is more of a pension or guesthouse, with Emma and Harold, the proprietors, usually around and making you feel welcome.
The room was large and included a sofa and TV, the bed comfortable, the bathroom large with all the usual amenities, including a very good shower and a bidet and plenty of lighting.
They serve up good beer and radler in the bar, downstairs, and the included breakfast buffet has all the requisite hearty breads, local meats and cheeses, yogurt, juice and coffee. Though if you'd like a capuccino or some steamed milk, Emma will be happy to provide those to you until you're buzzing about the hotel. On the warm days, dine on the patio, surrounded by the gardens that Emma tends beautifully. When it's cool, dine in the sunny dining room (more of a sun room). We loved our stay here!
Emma (we're suspecting) has decorated the hotel with all kinds of stuffed animals and kitchy things like that, as well as plenty of gnomes and the like in the gardens. It added a unique ambiance, which we found charming.
Also, Klammerhof has been in business for at least a couple centuries, though I don't know its exact age. The road that runs by it was once the main road, though now it's a bit off the beaten path. I can imagine travelers going over the Dolomite mountains may have stayed there as a stop before making the final push North, or Southbound travelers, as they made it over the mountains and were in need of a well deserved rest.
