“Chic prices, variable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

I had two rooms there - paid for a 'casual' - but due to its awful state and very old furniture, I complained and got a free upgrade to a 'classic' room. The 'casual' looked *nothing* like the hotel's online photos. The 'classic', did. The rest of the stay was very good.
Nevertheless, the prices are a bit too high for the quality.
Staff quality was also variable with some more senior staff being nicer and more polite, and younger staff being less nice (e.g. gossiped in front of me in German, thinking I would not understand!).
The hotel location is good.
The breakfast is *very* good.

Room Tip: There is a modern ('casual rooms') and and a historic ('normal rooms') branch in the...

Dear Seasonedd,

First of all let me thank you for your comments on our historic Hotel.
We are a little bit surprised that you found our “casual” rooms in an aweful state with very old furniture, since we refurbished them throughout over the last couple of months.
Thank you for the kind comments regarding our classic categorie rooms.

Let me insure you that we take your concerns regarding “gossip” in our hotel seriously and we will discuss this matter with our staff.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back at the Weitzer.

Kind regards,

Philipp Baumgartner
Front Office Manager

Great location in central Gratz close to the city centre. The hotels rooms seem to vary greatly in both size and luxury but are generally well equipped, modern, with air con, good shower and all the mod cons. Some rooms are overlooking the river. Wonderfully attentive staff who are an absolute pleasure.

Room Tip: The inner courtyard is quietest.

We liked the hotel location, it's very close from the city center. But because we booked the "casual room" which is relatively cheaper than the standard rooms, our rooms were a little far from the main building and lobby. The room itself was really nice, well equipped, well designed and unique. In our basic price there was no breakfast. The closest parking available cost €14/day which was quite pricey, but overall it was value for money for the international quality of service and the room design.

Room Tip: We booked three rooms for the same price for each, but two of the rooms got bath tub and another onl...

Nicely situated in a lovely old building right by the river in central Graz. The really great thing about this hotel is the staff: they range from being delightfully charming and absurdly helpful to merely friendly and efficient and that's about as good as it gets really!
The rooms vary over a wide range, from big and luxurious to very small and thin-walled. You can be lucky though, even some of the cheaper rooms are spacious and quiet. Ask for a room on the inner courtyard and you'll be ok. Avoid the rooms on the small road at the back as there are bars there which can be very lively on the weekends.
The breakfast is good but not exceptionally so, the room though is really lovely with big windows. The restaurant is really excellent with plenty of variety and a very good wine list.
The bar is modern and nice.
For 69 euros (2013) you can rent the hotel's vintage Mercedes convertible for the day and it's hard to imagine a nicer day out than cruising around the spectacular scenery to be found south of the city towards the Slovenian border.
I'm looking forwards to my next stay there!

Location, perfect overlooking the river Muir, No traffic noise, very central. Room, large, clean, comfortable bed, great shower. Air conditioning very welcome as the temperatures soared that week. Breakfast, plenty of choice and variety. Staff the most important element, friendly, helpful, attentive. We spent 8 perfect days in the lovely city and surrounding area with a great base to return to. What better way to spend your 55th wedding anniversary

We stayed at this hotel for one night, the receptionist made us feel so at home from the moment we arrived. Our two rooms were not available as we had arrived early, she took the luggage away and told us to go and enjoy the sights of the old city which was so central from the hotel and just across the river. After a very pleasant afternoon we arrived back at our room to find our luggage had been delivered each to the separate rooms which wee next to each other as we requested. Well done. We unfortunately had to leave very early so I cannot comment on the breakfast, but we would really go back to this hotel, the rooms were sufficient and the showers although a but small were just what we needed.
