The location is really perfect just several meters from Hauptplatz = city centre. Ideal location for exploring the old city centre of Graz. Very good breakfasts. The building is historical and interesting. The standard rooms are clean and enough big but very average – old furniture, very simple and basic equipment, bathroom with no heating (so there was really cold... More

I admit I'm picky about hotels and I probably wouldn't have chosen this from its TripAdvisor profile. However I didn't get to pick as I was travelling with friends and the hotel was really very good. Yes it's seen better days but it's friendly, clean and in the right room, surprisingly quiet given its location. (There is a quiet courtyard... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Graz is my hometown and whenever I visit this place I will stay at the Erzherzog Johann. If you like an old charming accommodation this is it. Every room has a different decor and best of all "quiet". A very romantic Inner courtyard and the best location in town. Step out of the... More

It is unusual to find an hotel with such unique character. This fact compensates some imperfections, such a bathroom with a shower of the sixties and a breakfast which is just good. A good choice to visit this splendid city.

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

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
