“Traffic noise drove us away”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

This hotel was the accomodation selected for us as part of a conference package. Our room was on the side of the hotel facing the main road. We were to be there for a week but the incessant traffic noise caused us to leave 2 days early We requested a room change to the back of the hotel but they were unable to oblige because they were fully booked.

The hotel staff were all very pleasant and spoke good English. Reception was very helpful in providing maps and instructions for getting to the city of Graz by tram.
Our room was pleasant and clean.
Breakfast was excellent - everything was fresh and of high quality.
The hotel has a parking lot.

Had we not been kept awake by the traffic, the overall rating would have been much higher.

Room Tip: Only accept rooms that are away from the road.

I booked this hotel on short notice because the price was right and we needed somewhere to spend the night before arriving in Vienna the next day. It's not a hotel that I would use for a long stay but it was great for the purpose that we used it for.

What we liked: The rooms were very clean and spacious; breakfast buffet was excellent; staff was knowledgeable and friendly; free parking was available and plentiful; physical location is nice, set in a pleasant neighborhood; and even though we arrived at almost midnight, the check-in procedures without night staff were simple and easy to follow.

What we didn't like: The room was too warm, forcing us to open the window; this exposed us to the second thing we didn't like which was the location of the hotel. Not as in a bad neighborhood, but as on a well transited secondary road with traffic going up and down until the early hours of the morning. We were tired though as we had driven a long way and the traffic was just background noise. However, I could see how it could affect someone else that is a light sleeper.

Overall though, we were very satisfied with the hotel and would use it again for an overnight stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road

Nothing wrong with the Stoiser Hotel at all. Situated on the outskirts of Graz the city is easily accesible by tram, the station is just behind the hotel. Thr rooms are spacious and clean. Fittings are of a high standard but we did feel that some of the furniture was becoming a little jaded.

Breakfasts were fine, usual continental syle buffet but everything was fresh and of a high standard. There is no resuarant at the Stoiser and we found the ''Buy in'' menu restrictive. The Stoiser has an arrangement where meals can be order from a local restuarant and eaten in the hotel dining room. We visited the restuarant one evening and found the staff there very unhelpful and left the place to enjoy a Chinese meal in a resuarant further along the same road.

Graz is a wonderful city and often neglegted by tourists. We would recommend the Stoiser and use it again if we return to Graz.

The Stoiser is part of the same, small family-run hotel group that includes the impressive spa resort hotel in Loipersdorf.
I'd travelled down from Vienna especially early in order to maximise my time in Graz, and the early check-in posed no problem to the friendly receptionist.

LOCATION: The hotel is situated in one of the greenest and most pleasant parts of the city, but also one of the most peaceful.
The picturesque tram journey from Teichhof (the nearest tram stop) down to Tinsel Town (the city centre) takes around 20 minutes.
Judging by some of the palatial type properties, it's a fair guess to assume that this district is where the moneyed denizens hangout!
The hotel itself is a few minutes by foot from Teichhof and lays on a fairly busy road (Mariatrosterstrasse).
Light sleepers should avoid at all costs a front facing room!
The magnificent "Mariatrost Basilica" church (a true baroque gem among pilgrim churches) is a short walk away, but there is little else ( apart from the beautiful scenery) in the near surrounding.
Funseekers looking for a vibrant nightlife will be bitterly disappointed, but if peace and quiet are your prerequisites, this is the neighbourhood for you!

CHECK IN/OUT: A totally friendly and painless process!
All the staff were very charming!

ROOM: I was given a decent size double room that was located at the front of the hotel.
The traffic noise didn't inconvenience me at all, as I was out in the city all day and the wonderfully, medicinal Austrian Bier ensured that I received a sound nights sleep!
The decor of the room had an airy feel to it, and provided a comfortable double bed and smart furniture.
The bathroom was of medium size, and like the room was very clean.
Sat-TV and a good size of fridge were definitely plus points, although I didn't spend a great deal of time in the room to make full use of either.

BREAKFAST: This was a "Continental style" cold buffet that was served in a small area on the ground floor.
Good coffee, freshly baked rolls/bread and a delicious, but limited selection of cheeses and cold-cuts.
A few different types of cereals and jams were on offer, but no hot options.
If your like me, and crave a greasy fry-up (as well as the Continental) in order to soak up the previous evenings excesses, then you'll be disappointed!
The limited food and beverages that were on offer, were all of the highest quality, but more like something that would be provided at a Pension and not a four star hotel.

CONCLUSION: Upon reflection, I think three star superior would better categorize this hotel, although I couldn't find any serious reason to complain about anything.
Having stayed now in a number of Graz hotels, I think that the Stoiser must sit somewhere between the Ibis and the Austria Trend Europa.
The location could prove time consuming if your only in Graz for a few days and want to explore the city centre, but if your staying for five nights or more and buy a laughably cheap weekly transport ticket, the nightly rate saving of staying a little way out at the Stoiser could be an ideal choice.
A recommended hotel for £38 pn inclusive breakfast and taxes!

Very friendly staff and helpful. Very good and abundant food. VERY clean hotel. ONLY thing which annoyed us was that the hotel is very far off from the centre. No cafes or restaurants or bars ANYWHERE in the area. You're stuck in the hotel room as there's no place else to go in the vicinity.
