Vittorio Barbieri, nicknamed Nino, built this hotel back in 1964 and he is still working as supervisor in the restaurant. Grandson and son of hoteliers and born in Bologna, started his career in Britain and Germany and then, for the first time as director, in Cortina and Trentino in the late Fifties. Our Guest loves his good manners, given by decades of experience in hospitality, and enjoy listening to his stories and memories during our grappa tasting sessions. 
 
Alberto, son of Nino and Maria Luisa Jaffei, is the general manager of Hotel Montana. He started his career in Monte Bondone when he was 16 and become the very first president of the Young Hoteliers Association when he was only 22. Since 1980 he works here with great passion and attention to details, especially in terms of hospitality and innovation. In 1986 he married Monica, born and raised in Trento, who definitively moved to Monte Bondone only in 2010 when their "kids become adults". Even if they chose other careers, also Alberto's brothers Alessandro and Andrea worked at Hotel Montana in the past: it's not uncommon to see them here, behind or in front of the bar.
 
The third generation of the hotel family is represented by Monica and Alberto's daughter and son. Martina moved back to Trentino after her education in France, Belgium and United States, and works at Hotel Montana together with her dad and grandfather since 2010. Also her younger brother Matteo passes by here pretty often: he came back from the UK a few months ago, and you can find him at the boulder gym or on ski slopes while he's trying to understand if the Hotel Montana will be part of his future or not.
