FAMILY
AND VALUES

The charm and professional expertise of five generations combine to make you feel truly at home.

Running a hotel is a vocation for us. Welcoming you to our hotel means giving you exactly the holiday you want and helping you to love Dobbiaco as much as we do and this is much more than just a job. Hearing you say you feel really at home in our hotel and are given a true family welcome gets to the very heart of a business that our family has been committed to for over 60 years.

Our grandparents Eugenio and Enrica

It was in 1951 that accountant Eugenio Bruno Comini first rented and then bought the Hotel Union in Dobbiaco, transforming this turn-of-the-century building into a sophisticated, state-of-the-art hotel.
Originally from Riva del Garda, Grandpa Eugenio came to Dobbiaco with his wifeEnrica and mother Josephine von Lindeman to follow in his mother's footsteps and become a hotelier.
His strong yet sensitive personality, his farsightedness and love of innovation  soon made the Hotel Union the favoured destination for a great many holidaymakers. This vivacious character, with bags of style, a much respected member of the community and tireless organiser, his entrepreneurial drive ably supported by his wife Enrica, equipped the hotel with the very latest facilities: the tennis court, the swimming pool and the tavern that soon became the hot spot for evening entertainment and nightlife and not just for hotel guests.

Bruno and Daniela

From the start of the 1970s Eugenio's son Bruno joined him running the Hotel Union. Bruno proved to be an energetic, versatile worker with an outgoing personality that he put to perfect use as a DJ and barman, working nonstop to entertain the hotel guests. His efforts helped consolidate and grow the business making the Union the much acclaimed hotel it is today, continuing to fulfil his father's dream with impeccable, up-to-the-minute service.
In 1979 Bruno married Daniela. Originally from Padua, she left her job as a dietician in Brescia and with her patience, organisational ability and willingness to listen, in no time at all, she became an essential member of the management team.

Enrico and Katharina

After this journey through the Comini family history, we have arrived at today and the latest generation, Alberto, Enrico and Eugenia, all involved in their own way in the family business. After completing university and gaining experience working abroad, the stage is now set for the next generation to take over and meet the spirit and challenges of the times, while never losing sight of the invaluable lessons in life and business imparted by their grandfather Eugenio and their parents.
Following the path begun by Grandpa Eugenio and Grandma Enrica and guided by their parents Bruno and Daniela, it is now the turn of Enrico and Katharina to take the hotel forward, ever mindful of its solid roots in the past but with an eye to the future.
