This is the third time we stopped at this hotels, it was just a short stop on our way to Switzerland, but it was very pleasant. The beds were very comfortable, the food was good, and the staff very friendly. I recommend it to anyone who needs a short stop over night in Linz. Nothing negative about this hotel crosses my mind.
very convenient location
The staff was extremely friendly and flexible. The room was nice and comfortable as well as spacious, clean and rather modern.
Superb breakfast choice Tea & coffee making facilities in the room would be a great addition. Access to the hotel is v confusing, fortunately we arrived when it was still daylight. The hotel surroundings are a bit bleak.
The hotel is easily accessible from the Autobahn from Germany (Munich & Regensburg) and Austria (Salzburg & Vienna). The location on the Danube is pleasant with good views from the rooms facing the river. Although close to a main bridge the rooms are not noisy. The restaurant is good and the outside terrace (we had dinner and breakfast) very plesant. Linz is not a particularly attractive city (industrial) but is close to lovely countryside. We visited Cesky Krumlov which is about 90 minutes drive before drving across country to Vienna and Bratislava. I dislike hotels that advertise wifi internet throughout the hotel and then charge by the hour. Today the vast majority of hotels I use have free internet and I wish all would do so - even if they add 1 euro to the room rate. Also the signal was poor. Also the hotel advertises public parking and again charges. Most people using this hotel will drive and the parking is under the building. Again I wish these hotels would include parking in the rate.
Comfortable clean room & good breakfast No access to the river without walking across a field or having to cross a motorway to get there from town without walking a long way around. Surrounding buildings very industrial.
Friendly staff and location was excellent. There is no free wi-fi in the rooms or free internet access in the lobby.
Very helpful and pleasant staff
comfortable rooms. good parking. good value design of rooms is a bit dated
Fabulous setting on the Danube, comfy hotel, good parking
Staff were very friendly and helped me with my terrible German. I think the owner/manager was berating his staff in the middle of the dining room during breakfast which struck me as a little unnecessary.
What I liked most was the friendly and competent staff. I strongly recommend staying at the City Hotel in Linz.
It was handy to the areas I wanted to see in the City as well as being close to the Railway Station. The room was comfortable. No safe in the room. The curtain around the window was useless as I am not a tall person and I could not draw it around the curve of the window. Also, I like having a window open and then the curtain wouldn't move at all because of the window - it would have been better if the curtain went straight across in front of the desk.
The staff were very welcoming and made a point of greeting us each time they saw us. Breakfast was good. The carpet in the lift was not clean, giving a bad first impression. The toilet was not particularly clean. The mattress was very hard. There was no air-conditioning and as there is a tower clock very close which chimes every 15 minutes, our sleep was disturbed.
The hotel staff are very diligent and friendly. Dainty breakfast was served.
good and friendly staff. good breakfast buffet. generally satisfied. location
Helpful, friendly staff who spoke excellent English. Locality of hotel near town and airport. General cleanliness of hotel was excellent. Good facilities too.
The bathroom didn't smell good. Althought we had complained about it, the problem was not solved. The hotel does not fit the Ibis quality standart.
Fair quality of the room for the price and nice staff Poor breakfast if having in mind the famous Austrian meals... :)
Location is convenient for people who want to catch the train early in the morning. Considering the rate, the hotel is just average.
Location, value for money underground garage could not be reached via elevator - heavy work via a staircase, to get your luggage in your room...
Location See above.
Location: easy access from the station
easy access from train station
room was smelling of cigarettes
The hotel had free internet access for patrons. There wasn't any adaptors for mobile phone or camera chanrging.
The room was very nice and modern and we were fond of our bathroom:-) the service was good and it was only 15 mins walk from downtown so perfect choice for us.
Everything was fine. Could not say anything about a breakfast - in 3 minutes by walk in the city center direction is perfect cafe! There is free parking 5 minutes walking from hotel, but hotel personal did not tell us about it anything.
Hotel is very nice! Room is very compact, clean and tidy.Very big wide screen TV in front of your king size bad, graved in the wall.Pillows are speicaly designed and very comfortable.Every part of your room is used properly.Maybe just lavatory could be joined with toilet in one separate place.Hotel is very modern inside.Real value for money!!! Just 5 minutes by car to city centre-downtown, or 15 minutes walk!!! Nice shift guy at reception did not speak a word of English,but was funny.Breakfast is maybe a bit expencive -13EUR per person, you can go to near local shops and buy cheap foods,if you want to save some money.
Clerk desks>> seem to be not competent enough: they booked someone else to the same room where I stayed, then programmed that person's door electronic key so, that this stranger came accidentally to my room.
Room was excellently furnished, staff friendly and helpful, location very convenient for public transport. Quiet neighbourhood.
The room was excellent and the staff also. Brekfast on the outside terrace was very good. I was having problems with internet because I couldn't log in every time that I wanted.
Nice and convenient. Excellent for business trips.
Rooms are great, and breakfast also Staff is very arogant, and do not have any responsible person.
location. Comfortable room. Pleasant cafe/bar. Very expensive breakfast
Location of the hotel - very close to the pedestrian and shopping area, a lot of interesting places nearby the hotel. The hote is well accessible by car. I have paid about 30 EUR for parking instead of 15 as was declarated.
Room is very smart, contemporary and well-designed. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Good location--hotel is only a fifteen minute walk from the main town square, and a couple of minutes from the tram line. Highly recommended. The charge for Internet use is very expensive for someone who is not on a business expense account. (In fairness though, they did notify me of the price before I used it. Also, there are internet cafes nearby.)
Well-designed, comfortable modern hotel, conveniently located near the main street of Linz but very quiet. Excellent breakfast.
The hotel is clean and well equipped but lacks character and is quite expensive when compared to alternative types of accomodation,
The room was clean an everything worked Nice sunny room in the morning The breakfast was too expensive, so we did not make use of this facility. We were at the front of the building and therefore quite noisy from traffic in the morning, when we opened the window. However, the hotel can do nothing about this. The back of the hotel is quieter, but less sunny.
The location as it is close to the centre with easy access to museums, shops and town resturants. It is modern, spacious and clean. The bed is uncomfortable with large soft pillows. I could not sleep on first night. The TV monitor fixed to the wall in the corner of the room and not facing the bed. That made viewing uncomfortable. The room is supplied with plastic chair. I prefer a soft one.
In the heart of the city. Price No complaints
Good value for money.
facility for early breakfast start from 6.00am smoking in the restuarant/breakfast room.
Informal but efficient.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful, nothing was to much trouble, in fact they went out of their way to assist. The only problem was the smoking in the resturant. For me coming from the UK, where smoking is banned in public places, I found this unpleasent.
We were there one night. We were looking for something close to train station. Toooooooooo much smoking, especially in dining room. It had a smoker's smell everywhere.
kindness of the hotel staff no
The TV channel is good.
Easy access to the train station, with a grocery store right across the street. Breakfast was pleasant, rooms were very big and beds comfortable. Flat screen TV in my room probably the biggest I've ever seen in this type of accomadation. Reception staff had to be found numerous times as there was no one at the post. Cleaning staff left all of their stuff on the stairs, and since I stayed on the top floor, every day when I walked down I had to walk over their stuff.
The location and break fast were both excellent! The staff in the evening was not very helpful. A water heating thermos in the room is always appreciated if we want to make our own tea or coffee.
Friendly staff. Excellent buffet breakfast. Close to the main station. Easy walk or tram/bus ride to City centre. This was my third visit. Smoking allowed in the bar.
The staff were very friendly, rooms great as were the restaurant and bar. No Iron & ironing board plus No tea or coffee making facilities which was quite disappointing. I think this is a must to have when you have international business travellers who work during the day as well as very early mornings.
We had a very nice upgrade for our anniversary. The variety at the breakfast was very good. There was no concierge service for our baggage.
The breakfast There was no free internet in the rooms
I liked the htel room, it was fearly big. The breakfast was excellent for this price. The bathroom was not too roomy.
Space of the room, comfort of the bed, comfort of the hotel, parking close Parking price really abusive (12€ per 24hours for hotel guests!), price of breakfast (13€ per person per day) so we didn't take any, only 1 towel per person in the room
Even though there was some lobby consruction underway, everything about the hotel was excellent. The breakfast exceeded even our highest expectations. It was great experiencing U.S.-style accommodations, especially real air-conditioning once again, a long way from home in the USA. Courtyard by Marriott continues to be at the top of my favorites list for consistently good service and excellent quality. Thanks.
no single rooms
Although I booked a double room, they had a single room booked, luckily there was no problem to change to a double room. I double checked my printout of the booking form to be sure the mistake was not mine.
We had a great room, it was huge, we enjoyed our stay very much at this hotel and would recommend it Just the color of the bedroom = Green!!!!!!!!!
The staff were wonderfully helpful, the room was beautiful, everything worked fine. Nothing we did not like!
My room was beautiful and well put together. The hotel itself was great. The location is awesome - close to shops and restaurants, and not far from the train station or old town. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The pillows were a little floppy and I'm not used to the European style blankets.
I appreciated the very quiet room so centrally located in the city. The hotel fitness center was very poorly sized, located and equipped.
Room style and furniture, central location of the hotel None.
very central location and comfortable
I have stayed several times and the staff have always made me feel welcome
Typical Business Hotel
you can walk both to Hauptplatz and Main Station within 10 mim.
It was good for a night's stay, especially while travelling for business. I would not mind staying again. The arrangement for internet connection was a bit hotch-potch.
Route indication, difficult to find and difficult to find a parking.
location was ok, in the middle of Linz After 10hrs in our car we were happy to arrive at 19:00pm. It took about 15 minutes before some one of the staff turened up at teh reception. Reception should be staffed till 22:00 hrs. What I found very very negative is that my credit card already was charged before we arrived. Booking.com puts clearly on the website that credit card is only for safety. We were planning to pay with another credit card as the trip was business and I used my pricate card fot the booking. There was no "sorry"or whatever and it was already paid so could not be changed. I really think only for this this hotel should be banned! Last thing, not important but nevertheless. One of the benfits of the executive room is a free newspaper. We never had one!
Everything was perfect. None.
Quite and atmosphere
We had a lovely view of the danube and the mountains. the shower had good water pressure. The reception, bar and restaurant staff were courteous and efficient I was disappointed that there was no shampoo or moisturiser in the bathroom. I did not read the guest reviews.
Nice location in a park and within walking distance of the center of Linz. Bus 26 stops across the road and takes you to the Hauptmarkt in less than 5'. Good restaurant and cosy bar. Free WiFi in all the rooms. Floor in the wellness area is very slippery, I fell and had to be taken to hospital.
Would Not recommend To go there again. Service Staff was unfriendly and we didnt get the Room Type we paid for. Our recommendation: Stay Away, there are much better Hotels in Linz for a Business Trip :-( Would Not recommend To go there again. Service Staff was unfriendly and we didnt get the Room Type we paid for. Our recommendation: Stay Away, there are much better Hotels in Linz for a Business Trip :-(
nice design, good personell, good restaurant - a litle bit to expensive charged internet, price bigger than mobile phone internet, breackfast too expensive, spa service expensive too
- The Staff was very fiendly. - The Room and Bathroom were very clean. - It had some amenities I was not expecting, like Hair Drier, Shampoo, Body Wash, Hair Caps, Nailfiles, Shoe Cleaner, Hand Cream. - The hotel looks kind of Old from the outside. - Breakfast was a little bit expensive (13Euros) Parking also (12Euros per day) . - We (my wife and I) asked for a double room and they gave us a room with two Twin Beds, this was not specified in the booking, so maybe it was our mistake because we did't ask for a Double Bed (Queen Size). - The bath tub was not quite OK, it was clean, but the drainage spout didn't work, so almost all the water remained inside the tub. We realized about it the next morning; but, because we only stayed for 1 night, we didn't ask for another room.
air conditioning in our room We arrived by bike and the hotel directed us to a municipal car park that was open all night not into their own carpark
The room decor. We can´t desconect the air conditioning during the night, so it was cold.
Very good and efficient staff
great design, good staff, very clean and quiet, excellent location, free wifi and spa nothing
Locality and moderness of decoration. Breakfast was not very good.
Very kind and helpful staff
the atmosphere is excellent. The buffet breakfast was very good. The parking facility was good. The fitness room was very good with the latest equipment. It only needs to have some free weights and fit ball for it to be excellent.
fab design, clean, comfort, and great staff rather pricy
Lovely modern hotel in a great location for tourists
cleanliness poor location, room was too small
very modern, very nice
Modern Stylish Hotel
Rooms are comfortable (business-like) Bathrooms (at least mine, I don't know others) are tiny, no storage places
We enjoyed the business friendly hotel with excellent free wifi in the rooms as well as courteous and helpful staff.
We got two triple-rooms for the price of the two double-standard that we had reserved. Definitely nice and comfortable! Breakfast, parking and young children included in the price!
The staff was very helpful and kind. The location of the hotel is excellent. The small price of the room (at the level of a three-stars hotel) is appreciated.
Warm welcome from the staff who constantly assisted us to enjoy our stay. Though a very central location the hotel was quite and very relaxing. Wonderful to hear the sound of church bells in the morning. We would have liked to have coffee and tea making facilities in our room. The Bathroom needed some small improvements especially the shower.
Friendly staff Wireless internet access only available in 2 hour packages which meant I had to keep going to Reception
The location was good, near the centre yet on a quiet street. The receptionist was really wonderful and helpful, and she spoke fluent English. The room was light and airy and had plenty of space. We liked the design of the room with the translucent bathroom walls. The breakfast was good.
The staff were extremely helpful and informative. The room was well equipped and comfortable. The location was very good for the old town and Christmas markets. Breakfast was of good quality but of a rather limited variety. The leisure facilities were poor and seemed somewhat neglected. I appeared to be the only user during our two-night stay. The hotel is overpriced for what it offers other than location.
The Location was good, the rooms are clean, the brekfast was good, the service is excellent
Ars Electronica and the proximity to the city centre.
It was not a 4 star hotel, morelikely a 2 star hotel
I love that you accept pets (my small dog comes everywhere with us!) pleasant reception and family friendly. Although my daughter is older now and does not usually travel with us, it is a pleasure to see families traveling together. wireless internet with an outrageous fee.
Staff were excellent
Only the lobby looks nice. Room fixtures are very old and poor food at restaurant. The hotel overall does not suit a 4-star rating.
The reception service was exceptional
Free and good Wifi connection. Staff was friendly both at reception and in the restaurant. Hotel in desperate need of renovation. Bathroom was awful (showerhead broken, (plastic) parquet coming off etc. When I checked in, about 40 Italian teenagers with teachers mingled in the lobby, very loud (it takes two Italian adults to be loud) and impression of having arrived at Youth Hostel. The turkey I had in the restaurant was a piece of industrial meet without taste, at least the waiter agreed with me, but his argument that turkey always taste of nothing was a bit of a surprise,,,,,
Well located, but very expensive. Costly WiFi and adsl internet connection.
low noise, parking facilities food not as good as expected
Excellent service, nice hotel and the room accomodates 4 persons, which is rare these days. Superb breakfast (not included though) and super fast internet line The toilet was very smelly and the shower head didn't hold but otherwise, no complain.
no more than two stars for the price I pay the reception, the noise of the guest next to my room
Easy going attitude of the family that own the place, and the great value meals and drinks available in the attached bar / restaurant. The location was a little remote - but as long as you're expecting this, that's part of the charm of the place. It wouldn't suit people using public transport.
We appreciated very much the extreme courtesy and friendliness - typically Austrian. The breakfast and dinner (food and wine) we had at the Hotel were excellent and rich. for a good price. Everything perfect. Also our two dogs were well accepted.
Very nice updated room and excellent breakfast.
This hotel is a great find. Reasonably priced, Great hosts always willing to help and very good rooms for the price paid. Free Wifi and excellent value food in the restaurant. If you have business in Linz, this is a great place to stay just outside the city.
Clean, modern, free wi-fi in rooms, free car parking. The staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English. This hotel is fantastic value for money. I stayed in a 4* in the Vienna the previous night which could learn lessons from the Kreuzwirt. Nothing. But be aware there is no lift.
Very very friendly, nice and helpfull staff,speak excellent english,it's 15 minutes from Linz by car,nice and modern rooms,with wi-fi,good breakfast,good vaule for your money.Overall we recommend this hotel very much!
Trivelig vertskap nei
very nice indeed, great landlady
very friendly staff
nice, spacious and comfortable room no heating during the night
Nice athmosfere and good food the church bells 6.00 am in the morning and after that every half hour
Room was too dark.
Central location. No parking facility, limited bar hours (10pm close) and very limited choice of drinks etc.
The staff was friendly, hospitable and helpful and our room was clean and pleasant. Beds were comfortable. Morning breakfast was included and tasty. Hotel location is ideal for exploring Linz. I enjoyed the historic site of the hotel and its antique decor. Lobby was small but serviceable and sometimes filled with smoke from people at the bar in the next room. Elevators start up 1/2 flight of stairs and require you to ascend another 1/2 flight to get to each level. This is only really a problem for people with excessive luggage or the handicapped.
Location! We were in the Muehlveiertle room. The bed was so big that there was very little room to move around. The bed in this particular room was also very high (at least mid-hip high and I'm not a short person) so it was difficult to get in and out of.
A lovely traditional hotel in the heart of the old town, superbly furnished, Persian rugs throughout, and comfortable spacious rooms. Great breakfast, and parking was available in a public garage a hundred meters away for 10 euros. The hotel was great, getting to it was tricky as streets were blocked for a festival. Be prepared to pay for parking. Restaurants in Linz are rare and full of smokers.
The hotel in the perfect place. Public parking not far from the Hotel. Suggestion to make a shot time parking place (load on/in) in front on hotel. The rooms are small but nice.
the hotel is located in the city center and is very convenient for the transportation and sightseeing. there are no curtains available in the room on the roof. the facilities are old. the breakfast place is relatively small and smells when somebody is frying eggs.
The hotel closes at 10PM which in our causd caused difficulties as we arrived at 11PM, staff attitude was not ideal
Centrally located, underground garage Noisy outside the hotel
Clean room, well located hotel, warm welcome
Nice location, convenient rooms, good breakfast and restaurant and polite personal should be estimated as high level of hospitality.
Excellent position, just a couple minutes walking from the tram lines. Comfortable and clean rooms.
Cooperative hotel staff Yes, account was deducted from my credit card at time of reservation despite bookink.com confirming that this will only be deducted at time of hotel stay. This is extremely incorrect I would say cheating. If you wish to install penalty for East Europeans (eg due to high number of stolen cards etc) then state this seperately. But stating that prepayment will not be iniatiated and within 5 minutes it was deducted is extremely disgusting.
Fair price for this hotel. Toilet and shower are not really great, but you could survive with it.
It is located very well. One can walk all over town from its location.
Clean, big, comfortable rooms. There is kitchen in the room. Permanent useful staff. Rather noisy from street. Internet is only stacionary near reception.
The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the center of the city, the rooms are simple, but clean; not bad for a short stay The most uncomfortable aspect: the toilets are placed on the corridor
Free parking, close to the office. good communication to motorway and city centre a little noisy
Decent inexpencive hotel. Good breakfast. The parking was right outside hotel. It was a good place to spend a night while traveling around Austria.
Friendly staff, clean room, nice breakfast. Excellent value for money! Only a handful of car spaces in front of the hotel.
I liked a friendly hotel staff, nice clean room, 1min walk to tram station with easy access to city centre.
Nice staff at reception of hotel. Good restaurant and kind people. Room was very tide.
