“Disappointing, stay away from room 130”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

We stayed here for one night in one of the "family rooms" but won't be going back. It looks like they took a fairly old, run-down hotel, spent a lot of money on sprucing up the reception and breakfast area, which was very nice, and that's about it. They painted the outside of each window of the hotel a different color -- this lets them put "Style" in the name of the hotel.

The room we were in was just big enough for the kind size bed and sofabed. The furnishings were OK, but cheap. The bathroom wallpaper just starting to peel in places. The shower didn't drain properly. The window had three panels, two solid and one funky cook design. The funky cool one didn't actually block light so there was no way to get the room dark at night -- in case you care about that.

Our biggest problem was that there was a kids soccer team staying the night. We had 2-4 of them in the room above us, apparently with no adult in the room. We were in bed at 9:00, watching a little TV, letting the kids wind down and go to sleep. That's when the noises upstairs started. At 11:00 I finally got dressed again, went to the front desk (no one there), went up to the room, knocked on the door, told the 10-year-old to pipe down. It didn't seem to have much effect. They started again in the morning and so I went back up again, this time talked to the coach...no help. On one hand none of this is the hotel's fault, but on the other hand if you are deciding whether to stay here you should know that this is the kind of place that books soccer teams and puts kids in rooms unsupervised, and if you get a bunch of kids in the room above you the construction of the hotel is such that you hear every footstep and trip to the bathroom.

And then there's the noises coming from the basement. There's some kind of machinery down there that was turning on and off a couple times per minute, somewhat randomly. It went on basically all night. I have no idea what this could have been but it drove us a little crazy. If you lay on your side with you ear on the pillow it sounded like it was right under the bed. I mentioned this to reception in the morning and got a shoulder shrug.

We were on the ground floor (room 130) and had a good bit of street noise in addition to the noise from above and below.

All in all it was the worst night sleep I can remember in a hotel. It's the only time I've lay in bed at midnight in a hotel thinking, "Maybe I should just wake the rest of the family up, pour them in the car, and drive the hour and a half home."

Breakfast was average for a European buffet. Location of the hotel, right by the tram, was great. Little kids play area in the lobby and kids' welcome bag were nice touches. None of it will lure me back again though.

Room Tip: I would try to get top floor so you don't have noise from those above and less street noise.

Very nice hotel, clean rooms, great breakfast with plenty of food. Staff was very helpful and kind.
The only negative point was the lifter very small for a hotel like this.
Easy to find and very close to the highway.

The IBIS Style in Linz Austria was newly refurbished and operating for the first time as an
IBIS in June 2012 . It has an extensive and free Car Park , only 2 mins away from a Tram
stop , and Trams into the City Centre are very frequent . I found that from the hotel into the centre of Linz only took 15 mins . Service in the hotel is very good , all the staff most helpful , The bed rooms are very quiet , very clean and cheerful . Good bathroom with Tub . Breakfast which is currently included in the price is excellent . The decor is very bright with strong colours which take a little getting used to . But I recommend it .

When Ikea start to built hotels, it will look like this one.
The rooms are equipped with really poor quality materials but the sleeping quality is ok. Bathroom furniture is falling apart.
Breakfast is the high-light in this hotel.
The location is very far away from city center if you are not with your own car.
I would recommend this hotel for younger target group.

This property is modern and equipped with all the comforts you can ask for in budget travel. The rooms are spacious, clean, brightly lit. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. The reception staff was prompt and friendly as were the atendants at the bar and restraunts. There is a small play pen near the reception which helped keeping the kids happily occupied while the check in process took place. The breakfast is a reasonable spread with ample variety to pick from. The only slight concern is that It is not walkable distance from the city center. We drove, thus was not a problem for us. All in all, it was a good stay and i would go back to this hotel.

It's modern and clean, free wifi all over the place and reasonable price. You need to switch off the lights half an hour before you go to sleep because that's how long it takes to cool them down and stop crackling just next to your head.
