Parkhotel Styria
Ranked #4 of 8 Steyr B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 November 2013

I had a 3 night stay at the Parkhotel Styria on a business trip. To summarise: I had a perfectly good visit and will most likely return. Details below.


The hotel has a pleasant overall atmosphere and staff are welcoming. Location wise it is just outside the very central part of Steyr, for my trip this had lesser influence though.

After having been assigned to a "non smoking room", that turned out to be smoky, I was (I think) bumped up to what looks like one of the larger rooms at the hotel. The quality was perfectly good with rustic furniture, although perhaps a bit on the sparse side. ALso, for my liking, the bed was a bit on the hard side. This room was situated in the "Guesthouse" (annex) and I one of the downsides of this is that the WIFI signal is extremely poor. The balcony and the view were nice bonuses however.

I enjoyed one dinner at the restaurant and booth food and service was of good quality. The breakfast buffet is not extravagant but will satisfy most (the assortment is quite on par with the size of the hotel). Coffee was surprisingly good (usually one of my main gripes when travelling in central Europe, UK, US,etc.).

All in all the Parkhotel provides value for your money and I would not hesitate to return, just need to make sure the room I get really is non-smoking.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms in the "guesthouse" offer balconies or patios with a view. The WIFI seem...

The rooms are clean - but that is the only positive thing to say. It is called "Parkhotel" but there is no park nearby. Location is for Steyr not the best - other hotels are more close to the city or in a better neighborhood. The rooms are loud - you can hear everything from the neighbor rooms. Actually I went to their restaurant for dinner as there is no other choice nearby. This was a terrible experience staff wise. Staff was not trained at all, very unprofessional. They talked about that they did not like the guests before in front of other guests. Never experiences something like that before.

Avoid!

Room Tip: Reception told me that booking through platforms is more expansive than booking directly. Never tell...

I think the Parkhotel is the best option if you had to stay in Steyr for one or more nights. They have a restaurant there (good and you will like it because it is some minutes to walk to the town center), the breakfast ist good and the service also. But don't expect something special

The hotel is old but has been refurbished. However, it was really shoddy, for example, although I had enough power outlets in my room, ony half of them worked... There is no internet and the lounge is a smoking area. The breakfast room looks shabby, too.
Service is not great, as it generally is bad in Austria.
But there are positive things, so
- take G rooms, the are very large, have three chairs and a terrace
- the pool and the mini spa are brand new and look really nice
- the restaurant is good.

Room Tip: Take aroom in the G annex

While I had staid in this hotel some years ago I was not expecting much from this stay. Unable to get into one of my first choice hotels, my agent booked this one. I checked the "Trip Advisor" reviews and then had concerns that the hotel had changed since my last visit. Well, I was unexpectedly surprised and can report that during my stay there was none of the lacking of service experienced by others.

This hotel is located about a 15 minute walk outside the old town centre of Steyr, and is located beside, but not serviced from, one of the main roads out of town. You also pass under the railway lines as you approach it from town. All of which does not give such a good impression. However once there you find a modern building that is adequately maintained. There is limited parking on the hotel grounds, but there is also an overflow car part close by. On the lower floor there is a small swimming pool. Quiet a surprise for a hotel in this area.

For me there was no delay in checking in and the greeting was cordial in good English.

My room was located facing the main road, but the traffic noise never proved a distraction, nor was I woken by it. This room was large. It had it's own walk in dressing room, lounge, bedroom and bathroom! Not my normal level of accommodation when I am away! The room was clean, and although not in the flush of youth was well maintained. My only real criticism was the lingering smell of cigarette smoke. While this was not strong it was a continuing underlying annoyance to this non smoker.

I did not eat in the restaurant in the evening, but did take breakfast. This was a cold only selection of local breads, meats, and cheeses, cereals, fruit etc. All self service.

Overall this was a good stay. I would have no hesitation to stay again unless I knew I had to walk into town when the weather was bad. I suppose there are always taxis somewhere! It was an unexpected surprise this one.

On the Intternet this hotel might seem ok but trust me it is not....it is just for old folks groups, very old, terrible service, a very long walk from the town center, no point in staying there.

Don’t go there! What a disappointment! Staying here was a bad experience! Avoid this hotel!
Entering the hotel lobby was like entering a smoky pub. It is allow to smoke almost everywhere at this hotel!!!
The receptionist does multi tasking job of receiving new guests on check in as well as being a waiter and a barman. Poor service!
On our arrival we noticed the closeness to the railway and the main road and made sure our request for a quiet room will be respected. We requested to double check it and after few minutes of joggling with the room spreadsheet, the receptionist assured us that the room he is giving us is quiet. Guess what? We couldn’t sleep most of night because of the noisy traffic coming from constant passing trains and vehicles. It was an old style room with old TV, very poor internet reception to none (we requested a room with internet connection when we booked the room 2 months in advance!) and no active phone line!(we had emergency situation that night and we couldn’t get help from reception as we couldn’t contact them on the phone). Apparently some of the rooms do have good internet connection, but we couldn’t get a different room, as they were fully booked.
Location is a good 15-20 min. walking to city centre. The hotel restaurant was nothing to write home about and breakfast was just ok. No tea-coffee facilities in the room.
The only good thing at this hotel is the spa centre. It is of a good standard!
We wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone and definitely won’t return there in the future!
