Jewel of a hotel in Innsbruck Apr 05, 2009
Located in the heart of Innenstad on Herzog-Friedrich Strasse, this hotel is a jewel. You are just steps away from the Golden Roof and Helblinghaus. Just past the Golden Roof a few meters is the Dom (St James’ Cathedral). If you head down the Hofgasse you will find the entrance to the Hofburg. Going the other direction the street becomes Maria Teserien Strasse which leads you to St Ann’s column and the Triumph Arch. The general area around the hotel is spectacular and will keep you busy just absorbing the frescos.
It is a small establishment, but is big on charm. From the outside you might miss it if you don’t pay attention. It is a plain wooden door. When you enter you just see a hallway. The reception is on the second floor. You can take the lift or climb the stairs. If you don’t have bags I suggest the stairs. The décor has many touches of Austrian culture. Going up the stairs they have embedded plate in the plaster. There is a working fountain on the first floor and lots of beautiful woodwork.
The staff was very friendly and helpful in giving directions and assisting with different information. The receptionist was dressed in typical Austrian style. It added a nice touch to the experience. No matter what time of day it was she had a smile on her face and in her voice.
The room was a nice size and clean. I stayed on the top floor and had a room in the eve of the house. If you are over about 5’9”, I don’t recommend this room. The toilet is under the slat and can be challenging to get to standing. One other thing to be aware of if you have a room on the front of the building, there are bars and restaurants in the area and you can hear the customers if they decide to get a little loud. I had a group of young guys who were happily singing like a boy band. But it wasn’t too bad.
Breakfast was included in the price. There was a nice selection of cereals, cheeses, bread and sweets, cold meats, and yogurts. They also had boiled eggs, sort of. Next to this large basket of eggs was what looked like a deep fryer with boiling water. There was also a bowl full of ice water. I considered that I might have to boil the egg myself and the decided against it. Luckily when I took my egg back to my table I preceded with caution. Good thing I did. It was still raw. I went back over to the boiling water and noticed these little devices hooked over the sided of the device. They were to hold the eggs and submerge them.
They also offer free wireless in the lobby if you have your own computer or they have computers and a printer available. I was able to leave my luggage with them during the last day.
Overall it was a wonderful stay and I will happily go back.
