    Great location and good rooms in Linz

    The hotel has an excellent location in the centre of Linz’s old town. Service is pleasant and efficient. We chose not to have breakfast in the hotel as there are many good options nearby in cafés and bakeries. Our room was very clean and had everything we needed. Recommended.

    In pleasant street close to centre of old town.

    Lively foyer cafe and breakfast area, beyond which is Reception. Spacious well decorated rooms. Would be nice and warm in winter. My luggage missed my flight and was delivered later, which the hotel delivered helpfully to my room whilst I was out. Efficient and friendly staff.

    Facility does not honor Hotels booking completely.

    It was close to the sites we wanted to see, the parking was onsite, and the staff was very helpful. They answered my emails promptly about the parking and access through the pedestrian area.
