I needed to plan a meeting in Jesolo, not far from Venice and for me it is a pleasure to be again in this small town. I decided to book an hotel for my few days stays to have all the comforts and also a good position to watch the sea directly from my room window. It is summer and the place start to host people on holiday, so also to be quiet, since I am in Jesolo for work, and have some good rest it is a need and not all the accomodations can offer this aspect.
Hotel Almar is a quite big resort located direcly on the beach, it offers a variety of facilities as a spa, gardens, pool, the private beach on the turquoise sea. There are also bar and restaurant where to taste specialities form the Mediterranean cuisine proposed in an innovative way. The professional staff gives assistance for any need and this is an added value for who wants to relax between work meetings.
Despite the conference area, the resort is more typical for holidays, but maybe this is the aspect I like because I need relax and rest in some moments. The suites are really modern and spacious, full of amenities to give to the guest a more pleasant experience. The balcony or maybe I should say the terrace offers an amazing view of the sea, a superb panorama. The elegance and the luxury are the leitmotiv of the hotel. Each detail is important for the staff.

My trip to Vienna (it wasn’t the first one) was very nice. My experience was great thanks to the superb city and also to a boutique hotel in Vienna called Altstadt. It is located in the central area, 400 meters to the historic old town. That’s the perfect position to go around by walk but also to enjoy more peace during the night. It is not my first time also in this hotel, because I like it a lot. Not only the setting and the location but also the concept.
I want to start to talk about my recent trip to Austria describing a boutique hotel in Vienna. It is not only about accommodation. Since the city is one of the favorite destinations in Europe, it is easy to find any type of hotel. I was searching for something unique, not too big and of course luxury, as usual. Altstadt Hotel satisfied all my criteria. Let me write the reasons, one by one. I had really a unique experience there.
A boutique hotel in Vienna: place and staff
I will post more about the city of the Habsburg royal court, but now I want to focus on my accommodation. When the driver took me to the place, Spittelberg quarter, I saw a renovated historic building. One of the elegant constructions of the city. At the entrance, there was a plate with the name of the hotel, but no reception. Upstairs, there is a small office with the reception and the staff ready to welcome. This is becoming quite common for many small hotels, located on a few floors of a building.
Since I mentioned the staff, I want to say a few words about the people who work there. The group is made by young people, mainly female (I guarantee that this is not the reason why I booked a boutique hotel in Vienna). They are efficient, very kind and innovative. Yes, they built a real network with the shops and various activities of the area to give to the guest a complete experience. The staff answers easily and fast to the requests of the travelers.
Altstadt Hoteloffers a modern setting in the common spaces and also inside the rooms. The style is one of the strengths of a boutique hotel in Vienna, that makes the structure unique. This is especially the case of this small luxury hotel. To describe the furniture and the decorations I can use two words: art and design. They are very well combined.
Thanks to the windows and the color of the furniture and of the walls, around the common spaces the light is really a lot. Meanwhile, in the rooms, the light is softer. But it depends on the type of room. The Italian Matteo Thun is one of the famous architect involved in the creation of this hotel.
I stayed in a single room. It is not that big, but space is more than enough. The bed is a double one, the wardrobe has no doors and umbrellas inside, and the bathroom is a good example of how a tiny space can become comfortable. The equipment includes WiFi, cable TV, cordless phone, parquet floors, and a mini-bar.
You can see some of my pictures to have an idea about the room. Also, I can add that the room of a boutique hotel in Vienna needs to be quiet. You can’t hear any noise. To reach the room you can go up by elevator or stairs in the building as a local who has a flat. Then you enter in big and long corridors with an elegant upholstery. Each detail is tidy.
Breakfast and services
I already wrote that the services are well organized and complete. Let’s see the main ones. Starting from breakfast. The first meal of the day is served in an elegant dining room with a very good buffet well combined. There are food and drinks for different tastes.
The same space is used in the afternoon. In fact, guests can have a cup of tea and a slice of cake at around 5 p.m. Something good for a sweet break during the tour. You can have it for free and seat in front of a fireplace. A boutique hotel in Vienna can’t exist without a bar. They have and it is a lovely place where to drink a glass of wine before dinner.
The staff can provide specific services, organizing a tour, suggesting where to eat or buy something and of course to prepare for meetings inside the hotel. I am not talking about a conference room, but about a room where to stay while eating or drinking with some outside guests.
It is also good to welcome some local friend or guest with a contemporary art setting, close to the main attractions of the city. Before to let you see the pictures I have to say that the prices of this boutique hotel in Vienna are not so high, especially compared with the treatment received.
Are you ready for your holiday in Vienna? Altstadt Hotel is a luxury stay. So if you are searching for a budget place or other solutions, you can check TEZ Tour. Their guide will help you to find a good hostel around the world, also in Austria. If you want to know more about the city, stay tuned. Meanwhile, check out my post about Graz.
Piedmont offers beautiful landscapes, one of these is in the mountains over the small town of Biella, in the northern part of the region, close to Aosta Valley. I want to share with you a brief experience that I had on a lake in the mountains in Biella some time ago. I was in a place called Lake Mucrone. Mucrone is the name of the local mountain part of the Alps. On it, there is a very small but lovely lake. My suggestion is to go there if you are around the region. You can go up walking on the pathway or use the cableway.
The Mucrone mount is 2553 meters high and it offers a marvelous view of alps and of the green area of Biellese. There are trails to walk in spring summer, meanwhile in winter, when it snows, you can also ski. Since I love to walk in nature and especially in the mountains, I have been there in the warmer season some months ago. To explain to you why I recommend a visit there if you like nature, mountains, and lakes, I will use my pictures, taken during my trip to a lake in the mountains. Before to see the pictures, let me give some more tips and information about Lake Mucrone.
A lake in the mountains: how to get there
To reach a lake in the mountains you can’t use a car, but you need it if you are not already on the place. So how can you go to Lake Mucrone? I am going to explain how I went there. I started the trip from Turin. So I used the highway to go to Biella. My exit was “Rondissone” because the first part of the highway is free. Then you drive for around 45 minutes following the signal to “Biella”. Otherwise, you can go out to “Santhià” and from there the road is almost all straight. If you come from Milan go out in “Carisio”. When you arrive in Biellafollow the direction to Santuario di Oropa, an amazing monastery full of art and history, also related to the Savoia Royal Family. About this, I will write more in another post. If you go to Biella by train, then you find a bus to Oropa.
In Oropa you park the car (in Piazzale Busancano) and you choose to go up walking, you will need at least a couple of hours. But mainly it depends on your speed and on the stops you will do on the way. Follow the directions of the pathway D13. In my case, I used the cableway (the return tickets costs €12,50). I was up in a few minutes. Do you think I lost the chance to conquer the summit? Sure, I, unfortunately, did it, but I enjoyed more a lake in the mountains. Don’t expect something big, but I am sure you will like it. Then you have to walk around the mountain and not only to stay on the lakeside.
At an elevation of 1894 m, its surface area is 0.01713 km². Of course, on a mountain, you can’t expect a big lake. Since 1800 it’s one of the major destinations for the local tourism and this place was one of the favorites of the famous painter Lorenzo Delleani, who lived between 1840 and 1908. A lake in the mountains from where starts the Oropa creek. It is a symbol of the area and inside you can also swim. Don’t forget anyway that the water is called. In one side there is a fountain dedicated to Italian sharpshooters corp, funded in Biella.
What to do there
There is a mountain retreat where you can taste the local “polenta” or just to drink something. Then you can explore Mucrone, enjoy the panorama and admire the beautiful colors of the lake and its reflections. The best time to see it is with the fog, because of the mysterious and superb atmosphere. But avoid that type of weather if you want to go around and walk. You can get really lost. Wear or at list have with you a sweater because the temperature there is always… a bit cold. Use some waterproof boots or waterproof mountain shoes. I suggest then to visit the Santuario di Oropa and if you like it also the Adventure Park and the Botanical Garden. A day to Lake Mucrone and surroundings will be good. For technical information check the cableway website.
The lake and view
Now I don’t have to write more words, because I guess the pictures can show you the landscapes better than me. I think it is a unique place and if you plan a visit to Piedmont, insert a day to Lake Mucrone, you will never regret it! Check out also my other travel experiences!
