“minimalistic and perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

This is one of the best stays I had in years. The hotel is not in the center of the city but in a corner of the university tho' going to Linz is just a hop into the tram. The rooms are like student dorms but I found them to be perfect. Two bedroom ones are spacious and silent. The front office staff were very helpful and friendly, they even prepared the breakfast for me when I left early in the morning on the day of checkout. The breakfast was excellent but not big. The Wifi was a bit of a pain as it didn't work across the span of the room. And the restaurant was closed for most of the time.

I loved the place and will go back the definitely.

Not bad for a three week stay, but the cleaning staff didn't do their job well and on time, sometimes we had to wait a week for them to clean the room.
There was no air condition and the heath was terrible, and no screen on the window made us easy pray for mosquitoes.
The elevators smelled terrible, and some of the staff members are not very polite.
It is a good value for the money but it could be better.

Rooms are clean but very simple. Images on site are accurate. As long as you know exactly what you are getting it will be all good.

Clean, with internet connection, a good desk to work and a very nice cafe for the breakfast. Clean. The only thing is that room are very boudly acoustically isolated - you could hear anybody walking on the corridor.

At about 40 EUR per night incl. breakfast it is excellent value for money. Feels more like an 70-80 EUR place.

I stayed at the Sommerhaus Hotel because most hotels in the center of Linz were fully booked due to the Ars Electronica festival and related events. The single room was booked for me by the Info Centre in Linz's main square and I went to the hotel immediately to drop of my bags. The hotel is situated a 5 minute walk from the second last stop of the tram lines No. 1 and 2 (which run all night). The Breakfast room was pleasant and the food varied and plenty. The staff were efficient and friendly. My room was on the top floor (12th) facing the countryside though there is a motorway which is visible at a distance and can be heard with the windows open. I liked the idea of leaving the hustle and bustle of the city centre for a couple of days and enjoyed walking in the Linz suburbs and fields. The hotel is large and can cater for large groups. You might think of booking something closer to the centre of town if you want to get to bed quickly without too much hassle.
