“Good, but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

This is definitely a business hotel, which translates into:
1. The rooms are small and made for a single person. We had a double room but there really only is enough space for one person. The bathroom is very small. There isn't much space for 2 suitcases, or to unpack your things (closet, shelves). A queen/king size bed is just 2 single beds literally pushed together.
2. the restaurant is large and the atmosphere is cold. Not cosy at all.
3. The wifi is free, which of course is a positive.
4. Even though there is a nice view of the mountains and the Donau river, the hotel is located so close to the motorway that you hear the traffic if you open the window.
At least the room was clean (definitely ask for the newer rooms), and the staff was friendly. For business, this hotel is suitable as long as you don't mind that it is not located in the city center. For holiday, this is not really suitable, especially if you are looking for luxury or "cosy-ness".

Excellent breakfast with very varied choice.

Room well equipped and pleasant.

But some distance out of Linz centre even if on bus route to the centre and not that many surrounding bars or restaurants. Thus not the best if focus is on visiting Linz centre.

Free wifi and gym/sauna.

Would definitely recommend this hotel. I stayed in this hotel for a day. Got a room facing Danube river. Though a bit far from the city centre , I liked the area mainly because of the calm atmosphere where one would be tempted to have a walk along the river side. Breakfast was superb. Also free wifi connection is offered

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the river

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

Large hotel, I spent there few nights on a work trip. Accommodation served the purpose. Service was friendly and breakfast was as good as you can expect at this type of hotel, quite adequate but nothing exciting. I had room 128 which was quiet and reasonably sized and a neat basic level accommodation. What bothered me was stuffy cigarette smell inside the room and in the hallway. Even if I kept the window open as long as I could at this time of the year, the smell persisted. Free slow seed interned was free but it worked on and off. For high speed one should have paid extra. It is some 15-20 minutes walk to down town, so the location is not ideal in that sense. I had my meetings close by so for me the location was more or less ideal though.

Room Tip: Ask for non smoking room or room for allergic persons to avoid pungent cigarette smell.

Nothing too great about the hotel except the breakfast- simply marvelous. The hotel building itself seems a bit old and the rooms are ok, but could do with some redecorating to make for some more space in the bathroom, which in our case was absolutely tiny. Thank God! we are not obese. The location was convenient with a pretty good bus connection to the city. All in all the value for money- simply great.
