Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 March 2014

This place is top notch. From reception to room layout of the rooms to the cleanliness and the location, everything is first class.
The most amazing detail was the breakfast - imagine you are in the heart of Europe and you walk up to a buffet that has everything from seafood to a selection of fine cheese, eggs and cold cuts and then topped with an amazing selection of tropical fruits. I have never seen anything similar in Europe and have been to many places.... the buffet is in one word, "fantastic".
This is a jewel of a hotel and I am seriously considering spending some time here in the heart of Innsbruck, at the next opportunity.

Room Tip: I had a room facing the square with panoramic windows......and a view of the mountains.

A slightly grumpy welcome on arrival. But our room was very clean, stylish and well designed. It is also well located near to the old town. Breakfast is very good, the hotel does not provide any other meals.

A couple of things worth bearing in mind. The common areas have a faint smell of cigarettes. And whilst the wooden floors are very stylish, it does mean you can hear the people in the room above walking about or people walking past your room. For this reason I'd recommend choosing a room as far away from the lift as possible, so as few people walk past your room.

One criticism. The breakfast restaurant reserves most of the tables with window views. However, no one was ever sitting on these reserved tables at any time. Basically the message this gives is "some guests are so much more important than you, we'd rather these tables were unused than you use them".

The Penz Hotel is a nice and very comfortable hotel in the Innsbruck city center. Close to the railways station and easy to reach by car, the hotel is a very good choice to stay some pleasant days in Innsbruck. The rroms are quiet and spacious, with a very modern and warm setup. The 5th floor roof is very good for an aperitif with friends or a relaxing after-dinner. But, what I like more when I come here, it's the great breakfast ... a very furnished buffet with any sort of food --- the choice of fresh and tasty tropical fruit is embarassing how wide it is. Besides that, you can find one ot the widest selection of jams, marmelades and honeys I ever found with sweet and salted breads. It's always a pleasure to go there and wish you the same experience,

This hotel is in a great location in the middle of the city centre. The rooms are well set out clean, quiet and functional. Good breakfast with lots of helpful staff and the 5th floor bar is definitely worth a visit. We thought it was very good value.

Room Tip: We did specify a quiet room when we booked and were put on the second floor over looking room of the...

Back to The Penz for one night after many years and still thinking that this the place to be when in Innsbruck.
Great location right in the middle of the city center, nice staff, modern decor, amazing cocktails at the 5th Floor bar and last but not least I got a very good rate that made my stay even more enjoyable.
Only thing I didn't like was the bathroom, I'd have preferred a walk in shower instead of the tub.
Breakfast is one of the bests I ever had, HUGE selection of fruits from around the world, pastries, meats and cheeses, just the perfect start of the day before visiting the Christmas markets around the streets.
Will return on my next trip to Innsbruck!

This hotel is very well located in the centre of town but appears to concentrate on the business market rather than tourists. Front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful and the room was clean and functional. The in-room safe was the best we've seen being simply operated by the room key. However the beds were hard and not very comfortable. We were disappointed with breakfast. Although we arrived early, the window seats were either all taken or reserved for people who had not arrived by the time we left. The breakfast staff seemed to be more interested in talking to each other than providing assistance
