A well positioned hotel with an easy walk to the old town. 200m walk to the bus stop that takes you directly to the Unterberg mountain cable way.(Worth the visit!) Parking is provided around the corner. Pitty they could not assist with a double bed nor alternative bedding?

If you want somewhere near the train station and still a stone's throw away from the city centre and sights, this place is perfect for you. I am amazed at how pretty and comfortable the accommodations with it's very competitive price. They let us checkin earlier and it was a breeze, same with the checkout. The rooms are large and...

Location: It was about a 15 minutes walk to Old Town, which was fine by us but if you wish to stay RIGHT in the center of everything then this place is probably not for you. However, I found the morning walks into Old Town quite therapeutic and you get to walk past Mirabell Gardens so that's a plus. It... More

The Hotel Imlauer is a decent enough hotel. It has a nice lobby, decent sized elevator, wonderful breakfast with lots of hot food offerings, and good location. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Our room was nice and large for our family of 4. The bathroom was very nice and everything was clean. A nice coffee and tea set up in the room. It was about a 15 minute walk to the old town and an 8 minute walk to the meeting place for the sound of music bike tour. :)

This is a nice hotel situated about 15 minutes walk to the old town, 20 minutes from the Fortess, and less than 10 minutes the other way to the train station. I think it may be better than being right in the middle of everything. You have your choice of walking to the old town down Rainerstrasse, through the lovely... More
