“The worst place I ever stayed”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Room where very dirty.
I had to clean the apartment when I arrived.
One of the staff members was very unfriendly, quite rude. It seemed like she was angry to have guests coming.

The fitness room is very outdated and the some machines have rust on them.
The sauna and Jacuzzi are under lockout.

Breakfast can be take only at strange hours( 8-10 am) and is not deserve to pay 8euro for it.
If you order breakfast and you will not eat it, you will get some reproach from staff

Blümel is pretty much the cheapest Place to live in Graz. I booked a full month's stay for a business trip. I could only bear 10 Days.
First of all the room smelled intensely of cigarette smoke when I got there. No mentioning of it being a smoker's room. The smell left after a few Days of open windows, no big problem yet.

The biggest problems for a business traveller are really two. One: The reception is only open 08-17. This means if you have a job you will need to take an hour or so off, as you need to check into the reception to keep your room within 48 hours of getting there. I came there roughly 16:50 several Days and the staff had already gone home. Great.

The second huge problem is internet access. No WLAN. Only a cabled, extremely slow internet Connection. This needs to be refreshed each 2000mb. If you enjoy watching news or whatnot from your home country and make some Skype calls, this lasts roughly 1-2 nights. Then it needs to be refreshed for Another 2000mb at the price of 36 euros per refresh. This can not be done during weekends or nights. If you're in a Conference call or something: bad timing.

Another issue is location. It takes roughly 30 minutes to walk from Graz city center. On this way you need to pass all the way through the "slum" of Graz. During 5 Days I was offered drugs 3 times and watched two drug deals on the streets. The only good thing to say about this area is that if you are in dire need of Halal food you will never need to go hungry. No businesses in this area takes credit card and ATM's are of course not available.

The final Point is the staff. They are just as arrogant as you might suspect when they never seem to stay there until the actual closing time. Every Contact with them is painful. One day the lock on the door broke down and I had to call the off-hours receptionist that was available of phone. She told me "maybe" someone would come to unlock the door for me and Another traveller who couldn't come in. No promises. NO PROMISES? We were locked out from the hotel we had paid for!!!
After roughly an hour a girl who looked 14 years old and only spoke german came and unlocked. With my very limited german language skills I Heard her saying we can only get in once because she wouldnt let the door stay open and they wouldnt pay someone to fix it the same night. Great. I managed to convince her boss that it was not a very good solution however, thank god.

The only time I would ever concider this is when passing through Town so I could arrive late, sleep and leave early. Any Contact with the neighborhood or staff would be enough for me to pay the double to stay somewhere else.

We visited Graz in December and found the bed and bedding most comfortable! The receptionist was very unfriendly, unhelpful and rude, but fortunately our contact with her was kept to the minimum. Guests should know that it is quite a walk from the nearest bus stop, but fortunately there is a lift in the building, so you dont have to drag your suitcases up many flights of stairs.

We could not have breakfast, as we were told by the very rude receptionist that we did not give a 24 hour notice that we would like to have breakfast.

Our room was small, but all the basics were in place with many power plugs and a well equipped bathroom. The other huge plus was that the hotel was in a quiet location and we had a very good rest. The city mall is within walking distance or one bus stop away and the main train station is also easily reached by bus.

We would recommend this hotel if you need a comfortable, basic overnight stop while in Graz. Avoid contact with the receptionist, though!

Room Tip: All rooms should be ok, as it is facing back from the main street.

Receptionist and the cleaner were extremely rude, they could not speak English properly either. There was no room service, cleaning was done once a week, sleeping bed were too small.

It was a horrible experience.

This "hostel" is located on a low end area of Graz. My reservation was for one room and two beds, just to find that there are no such rooms here. Had to pay for another apartment.

One of the rooms did not have Internet Conection. So only major quality was price.

No complaints! Located just 10-15 minutes' walk from the rail/bus station (where there is a big Spar open til 10pm), tucked away a bit (so less noisy) by a petrol station. My room was ready when i arrived, before actual check-in which was great, room had a fridge, TV with loads of channels in various languages, comfortable bed, spacious bathroom with lots of towels and soap. Bit of a walk to the centre but it was pleasant so I just walked everywhere, and you can probably get a tram/bus from the bus station too. Would recommend!
