my wife and I stayed two nights without reservation and were pleasantly pleased. It is clean and convenient to train/bus. Hall did smell stale smoke but rooms did not. Breakfast and dinner were good at restaurant.

I am not sure that the Hotel Zur Lokomotive would be part of anyone's dream vacation. I originally found it after being turned away from many places late at night, lugging my heavy baggage from the station. The hotel is just barely visible from the train station, but is in fact quite close by. They proved very friendly and the... More

I have stayed here several times as I always arrive by train and for that it is a very easy five minute walk from the station as well described elsewhere in these reviews. The welcome is good, check in and out quick, the rooms perfectly adequate but a bit gloomy at the back though there it is at least quieter.... More

Stayed in the Linz Lokomotive hotel a few weeks ago. Good location from the main HBF just next to the IBIS. Warm welcome when arrived but that thats the only positive. Got the room key and went to the room via the lift , Strong smell of smoke in the corridor , Room absolutely stunk of a nasty smelly drain... More

We got a roof above the restaurant. It was very noisy until late at night. We were very tired and wanted to sleep at 10pm, but despite using earplugs it was too noisy to sleep until after midnight. For 84 euro per night we also didn't consider it good value.

We were in Linz for only one night, but this was the perfect choice of hotel. The location is perfect - cross the street from the train station and within 2 tram station of the city center. The room we got was nice, clean and comfortable - even if sleeping on the sofabed. Breakfast was excelent and taking our coffee... More

Quiet location a few minutes walk from the station. The city centre is a few tram stops the other side of the station. Very friendly staff. I enjoyed the buffet breakfast. My room was very clean and the bathroom looked as though it had been recently refurbished. This was my fifth visit - planning to return in 20014

I arrived early, not at Linz but at Wels some 12km away after the train attendant woke me after a night on 6 berth couchette compartment. Sheer hell in a high temperature with the only place for luggage on the berth! No wonder I was in a hurry to get off. I paid a taxi dearly to get me to... More

Easy to reach from the Hauptbahnhof, just pass to the left of the Ibis Hotel, turn right and there it is .The hotel has an Italian restaurant and no one could think of an Austrian restaurant, I couldn't find one either. I caught a tram (1/2/3) to the Hauptplatz, purchase a 24 hour Maxitiket for 4.00 Euros. Down a passage... More

Given the prices of hotels in Austria, I would say this is quite correct for the price it charges. The location is also very good if you are willing to visit around Linz, as it is close to the main train station. You need to walk some 10 minutes to the city center -or take the tram, which is also... More
