              Location is perfect. Great breakfast buffet.

              Beds are small. Rooms hot We were woken at 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am by an old inefficient a/c system that during the night ounded like a bag of rusty old spammers rattling about in our a/c vent. It had been reported to reception on our arrival due to lack of air flow through the vent. An alternative room was offered, but this was the same (no or little air flow) so we kept the original room. In the morning at check out I explained to the very sympathetic lady on reception that we had not slept and the reason why, maintenance man went to the room and returned saying there was nothing wrong with the a/C. I had however recorded the noise which I then played to both people. I was allowed free parking €12. I should have slept in my car!.

              The attentiveness of the staff was excellent. The hot tub on the roof was also a lot of fun

              There was a little bit of late night shouting from the student area behind the hotel.

              We asked for a taxi in the morning and that went perfect. Good location. Safe.

              We could not eat in the restaurant at dinner, because it was a buffet for some companies. So either buffet or go out, it is not nice not to have a proper dining place in a 4 star hotel. Transparent bathroom walls; annoying building structure. Overpriced, but safe and does the job for a short stay.

              Well located hotel to railway station and tourist attractions. Clean comfortable room. Good breakfast including hot food. Good value for this standard of accommodation.

              Rooms too hot - had to open window every night as hot and needed fresh air.

              It seemed that room was renewed recently and it was very comfortable for us. Also, location was very good to see old town.

              It was clean and the staff were really helpful and nice. The location was perfect.

              The only thing that could be better is a lower price, but this applies to all hotels.

              - really good position: 2 min walking distance from the downtown - nice room private terrace - nice spa/wellness area (although we haven't gone into)

              - rooms nicely refurbished but the carpet floor was old and dirty - inadequate room equipment - definitely not a 4 star hotel

              Great position in innsbruck right next to the old town. Room was a good size Enjoyed the swimming pool. Only stayed done night as in transit from tuscany. Breakfast buffet was nice. Car park under hotel - but if you have a low suspension sports car don't use as has very steep drop and you will damage your bumper.

              Carpets in room should be replaced very marked. No water available in fridge in room. Shampoo etc in sachets - very basic. As with many European hotels no tea/coffee making facilities
