Where We Stayed: Grand Hotel Trento

rain 65 °F


The Grand Hotel Trento is in a convenient location. A short walk through the park that is across the street gets you to the train station. You can reach the Duomo in 5-10 minutes on foot, and the Castello del Buonconsiglio and the funicular are about 10-15 minutes away in different directions.

When we checked in, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that we had received a free upgrade. We found ourselves in a suite with a large living area and bedroom area.


We could separate the two areas by closing the door on one side and pulling the curtain on the other. This made it much easier for us because bedtime for my daughter didn't mean it was lights out for the rest of us. Plus, it was great to have the extra room to move around and keep our things.

We also had positive experiences with the staff. The housekeeper on our floor and our server at breakfast were friendly and really nice to my daughter. The front desk staff were always willing to give restaurant suggestions and point out locations to us on our maps.

Finally, I have to give bonus points for the cool floor in the lobby. My daughter even liked it.


I realize that if we were to return to the Grand Hotel Trento, we may not be so lucky as to get a suite next time. Even so, I would stay there again.

Breakfast: The complimentary buffet was good and included eggs, meats, cheeses, fruits, yogurts, pastries, and beverages. The offerings were mostly the same every day, but the variety of items was enough that you didn't necessarily have to eat the same things every day. I especially liked the super-thick hot chocolate. We saw a family using a highchair at breakfast, so they are available.
Bathroom: shower-tub combo
Blow dryer: yes
Elevator: yes
Internet: available for a fee. Instead of using it, we relied on a cell phone we were using that was a wireless hot spot.
Nearest playground: in the park across the street.


Recommend to families with young kids: definitely
