We enjoyed this hotel on our bike tour from Passau to Vienna. It's central. The room and bathroom are large. The breakfast is large. I especially liked the juice machine. That is a nice touch. I would return.

We stayed in the Hotel Kolping as part of a bike tour along the Danube. We spent a second night so that we had some time to visit Linz - a lovely city. We were very pleased with the hotel: it was clean, conveniently located and the staff were very helpful and gave us good advice on sightseeing. The rooms... More

Good standard of rooms with clean bathroom etc and free wifi. Check in was swift and friendly. Just a few minutes walk to the centre. Arrived early and no problem with us leaving our bags. Decent breakfast choice Would stay again and recommend.

At first you may think that the Hotel Kolping looks like an “upscale” youth hostel, but in fact it’s a great hotel at an affordable price with fantastic service. The rooms have basic but very comfortable furniture. There is enough room to store your belongings, and a comfortable desk. I had a room with two single beds and they are... More

I found the Kolping in Linz to be of a very high standard. We only stayed for one night, arriving by car. The hotel was easy to find with a SatNav and the car park well signed (we arrived in the dark). After parking it was easy to get to reception and we were quickly booked in and off to... More

This is primarily a business hotel, and we made the mistake of booking it as a stop on a bicycle tour. When we arrived at reception we were unfortunately a little muddy, because we were travelling shortly after the Danube floods and some of the path had been flooded. At the same time we arrived, guests were arriving for a... More

It takes 10 minutes walk to reach the hotel from the train station. And it's just near the city center and the main street. I was nicely surprised to be early checked-in (at 11 a.m). The rooms are a bit old-fashioned but very clean, there is a good wifi and a mini-bar. Breakfast is good, you can even get a... More
