“Superb service and hotel to match”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2005

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel in Klagenfurt. We had read the previous reviews and decided to give it a go! We took a Ryanair flight to the little airport and a short taxi ride took us to the hotel. The reception area and restaurant was very welcoming and the staff extremely helpful. Our room was superb; the hotel is in a very old building in the town but the rooms have been decorated to a very high standard - quite modern but in a comfortable way. Bathrooms were excellent and the beds extremely comfortable. Our room looked over the square (as recommended by a previous reviewer) and we spent two very pleasant and quiet nights in the hotel. We ate in the main restaurant the first night (the menu was in German) but a member of staff kindly translated for us and we had a most enjoyable meal. The breakfast each morning was something else - absolutely wonderful! The second night we ate in the smaller restaurant (again very good). We took a trip (by local bus) to Lake Worthersee and it was fabulous - the weather was superb and scenery breathtaking. All in all the staff at the hotel and the little town of Klagenfurt were very refreshing - the staff could not do enough for us and the town was just nice for a two day break - I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Oh - forgot to mention the spa - we didn't use it but had a look and it was very clean and well equipped.

Treat yourself - get a cheap flight from Ryanair and take yourself off to this pretty lakeside town Klagenfurt. Just right for a weekend break. This hotel is simply perfect but make sure you get a room overlooking square. Rooms on one side just overlook a wall since back of hotel backs onto narrow pedestrian street. Gorgeous historic building mixed with stunning contemporary design, perfectly positioned in centre of old town with lots of bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Lake is a short bus ride/bicycle ride away - good for an afternoon stroll and interesting museums, picturesque medieval streets and churches - open air theatre/concerts in summer. Lots of interesting shops (some good contemporary jewellry shops) - all the ingredients for a good weekend for all the family.

Hotel is just gorgeous - friendly helpful staff, interesting restaurants, good outside tables for watching the world go by, lovely bedrooms - clean, comfortable, contemporary and large with all amenties you will need. I stayed here with my elderly mother in 2004 and both she and I loved it (and the staff were very considerate even though she did keep mentioning the war...!!) Can't recommend it highly enough - you honestly would be foolish to even consider staying anywhere else in Klagenfurt - the combination of this hotel's location and mix of historical/contemporary is just right

This small hotel with the complicated name is a relative newcomer to the hotel scene in the lovely city of Klagenfurt. It opened November 2002 in a historical building and is the only five star hotel in the city. Located right in the center, but absolutely quiet, it's an inviting place with large, comfortable rooms at very reasonable rates. In addition to the many amenities of a true luxury hotel you get free, wired high-speed Internet access in every room. The hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is an upmarket restaurant (Arkadenhof) in a nice patio setting plus a buffet restaurant with pleasant outdoor seating during the warm season. The "Arkadenhof" is pretty much deserted most of the time. This doesn't mean that the restaurant manager is willing to give you a good table if you are on your own. Single guests are rather tolerated than welcome. As to the cuisine … well, it could be called innovative. There are some good restaurants in the surroundings.

I have just returned from a three day stay at the "Landhaushof" (not my first one) and highly recommend this beautiful and comfortable hotel.
