We stay one night in Graz to do some sightseeing and to take a ride on the funicular railway (my partners passion) The Hotel is not easy to find as the sat nav puts you on the wrong side of the square so we needed to park and walk to the Hotel to get directions. We were then told to... More

This is an historic building, upgraded with modern conveniences. In plain downtown, it is within walking distance of most attractions. Parking is in front of hotel for E 15/day. Service is phenomenal and the breakfast one of the best we had on this trip. The room was spacious and the bathroom was fitted with modern appliances. There are some excellent... More

The Palais Hotel Erzherzog Johann is a wonderful old-fashioned hotel that keeps clinging to its heritage. The inner court is utterly amazing - and it feels like being on an old steamship sailing in the tropics. The staff is really service minded, friendly and polite - it is almost like you are in an old movie pretending to be like... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in May. The location is great, you can easily walk throgh city center, and the Schlossberg is just across the street. Also, great department store Kastner&Ohler is next door (nice cafe at the roof with city views). But our room was old, and the breakast was quite poor also. Specially for Austrian standards, since...

Stayed there for 2 nights on a business trip. The hotel is old but in good condition. The public spaces are beautiful. My room was small and not attractive though. I could not regulate the heating so it was a bit cold for my taste. The internet connection had serious problems. The breakfast was ok nothing special. The staff was... More

The staff at this hotel were wonderful - very polite, helpful, and accommodating. The location of the hotel is perfect -- most tourist sites in Graz are within short walking distance. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are large, clean, and uniquely decorated. The only problem we had was with the parquet flooring. We were in room 105 (I... More

Great central location (the best location to Graz), very nice hotel, very nice rooms, Just good breakfast, the smoking allowed to hotel bar (for me very good). The only disadvantage is english communication to the restaurant but next time i will be more careful. Instead of this VERY GOOD.

I am afraid I shall seek for the future a different Hotel in Graz. The charm of the Hotel were the not too renovated, huge rooms with the antique furniture. The prices were a bit high, but altogether acceptable. And the restaurant was ideal for a light dinner after a full work day. This time the breakfast service was appalling,... More
