Not to our taste

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 17, 2009

The hotel is in a very good location next to the river and the famous Ars Electronica centre. Easy to get to via the tram numbers 1, 2, 3, all of which stop right outside.

The reception is small and corridor-like but decorated with flair. It is obvious that the hotel is a converted apartment block for once you get into the lift and the upstairs corridors the decoration is pretty basic and dowdy. The rooms still have their doorbells outside and this theme continues inside with a cooker in the wardrobe! However there are no pans or other facilities to enable them to be used.

The bathrooms may have had a recent lick of paint but are not new and probably date from the time these rooms were apartments. The shower was very good but the cabinet had seen better days.

The room itself was huge and imaginatively designed. The ceiling was very high and the room was light and airy. Its decoration was new as was the plain wooden floor covering.

The windows were huge and covered by vertical blinds to match the décor. They were double glazed but even so our room at the back was still incredibly noisy. We put this down to the fact that the room had few soft furnishings (esp. curtains) to absorb any sound. We always use earplugs so managed, but it wouldn’t work for everyone.

The bed was in a box frame which we kept hitting our legs on and the TV was far too small for such a large room and needed to be larger or much closer!

Breakfast was served in a small first floor room, decorated with white skulls set onto black glass panels. It actually worked quite well. It was self service and was just about acceptable. Breakfast was served until 11am at weekends but if you went down that late almost everything had been eaten. There was no attempt to replenish. Coffee was brought to the table and was awful and if you had tea the urn kept the water warm and not hot. It wasnt until our 4th morning that we discovered yogurts pre-served in glass dishes on a shelf at head height!

The huge bar downstairs had all the character of a factory, and catered more for people coming in from outside than for guests. It served limited food but the chairs were comfortable and the staff very friendly and efficient.

All in all I wouldn’t return and probably wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Nothing was completely wrong, and there was a lot to like (especially the efficient staff on reception) but somehow the overall experience didn’t work.
