Meet your hosts

A family with hospitality in their DNA and the Dolomites in their heart

Who are we? Pleased to meet you: we are Elsa, Stefan, Nicole and David Rier, your hosts at Hotel Albion. Here with us, you will have the chance to discover South Tyrol – and in particular the Val Gardena valley and Alpe di Siusi – in all its faceted charm. We ourselves are great fans of our homeland and know it inside out, down to the most remote nook and cranny. We will be delighted to show you around, so you can take in the amazing beauty this corner of Earth has to offer. Not only will we share the best local stories with you, but we will also live them with you! Because we are nature lovers, bon vivants and full-blooded sportspeople – as well as hoteliers born and bred, always there for you and our staff, ready to help with an open ear and a kind word. After all, what would Albion be, without our valued guests and trusted team? 

What do we hold in store for you? We aim to offer you an indulgent and action-packed holiday with space for you to write your own unique stories – experiences to look back on fondly whenever you feel like it. Here at Albion, it’s all about variety, and there’s always something new for you to do, try and enjoy. As hosts, we take care of everything and make a point of making your stay as stress-free and refreshing as it can be, so you can focus on living the Dolomites’ extraordinary natural setting with all your senses and collecting beautiful memories to take home.


Albion has been a family-run hotel for generations!

To us, it’s important that everyone who visits finds a warm, relaxed atmosphere in which they feel welcomed.

The Dolomites are not only a very special feature surrounding our hotel – they are part of us. They never fail to amaze and inspire us, nor our guests. We have been shaped by traditions and are proud to keep them up and carry them forward. Sharing our enthusiasm for nature, culture and people is what we love, and what we offer our guests through a wide choice of activities.

We aim to offer guests what we ourselves look for when on holiday: a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere; a retreat for unwinding and recharging.

Our team’s attentive service, the spacious spa area and the welcoming, modern guestrooms are all designed for this. The view of the tranquil woods surrounding us does the rest, inspiring a sense of contented relaxation.
