How the story began... 🤎
In fact, the Hotel was built in 1890 as a private Villa by the then-famous local architect Pietro Delugan. It would serve as a perfect example of his art and skill: it had one of the most beautiful facades Merano could boast at that time. The building is now justly recognised as a true Art Nouveau jem and has been listed since 1984.
The Villa Westend, pleasantly situatetd along the cool, shady river-side walk once known as the Stefanie Promenade (now Passer Promenade), was sold to the Pöder family in 1907. They managed it as a guest house through the troubeld times of two World Wars and the very unsettled period that followed. Many of famous guests have spent their holidays at the Westend, including the German poet Gottfried Benn, who wrote many letters and poems to freinds and family during his stay.
The Strohmer family have long been active in the hotel and catering business; they already own the Hotel Europa Splendid. They bought the Villa Westend Hotel 1983 and remodernised it completely with both taste and style, respecting the original "art nouveau style". The Westend was awarded 3-stars in 1986.
The hotel has a delightful garden along the river and is in a quiet yet central position, away from the hustle and bustle of the town. It is ideal for a truly relaxing holiday. Our guests often remark on the comfortable, cosy atmosphere, the spacious airy rooms, the exellent home–cooking, the attentive service and the warm welcome they always receive from the owners and staff.
