“Stylish hotel w/ nice location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

Stayed there for one night during a business trip. Although it was a short stay, I did like this hotel for its central location, and modern and spacious room. Even though located pretty much in the center of town, my room was quiet while facing the street. Also, athough breakfast was not included, it is very good one with both hot (omlette, etc.) and cold selections!

Hotel is new, modern and stylish property right in centre of Villach laying on the river. Hotel building is connected with congress center. The rooms have very unique and smart design, very bright atmosphere and extremly comfortable beds. Definitely the best Holiday inn I have ever stayed. If you ask for riverside room you will enjoy pitoresque view from your window. As mentioned in other reviews inside walls are made from some kind of glass so your bathroom activities can be visible to your roommate- this is really impressive design solution but could be inconvenient if you share the room with someone that is not your spouse, friend or family member... Public garage is across the hotel entrance and hotel offers 7€ deal for 24 hours which is very correct. If I have to look for negatives I would say there is strange pricing policy- hotel charges 25€ for 2nd adult in the room regardless of breakfast usage. But overall, this is 4+ stars hotel and there is no better value for money option in Villach.

The hotel was very well located being walking distance from the railway station and in the middle of a delightful town.
. The view from our large window was amazing. The very "Austrian" town with church spires and gardens was all around us. The river below had attractive walking paths and a dock for the tourist river boat. In the distance the mountains were snow covered. What a view. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast excellent. Staff amazingly helpful. In 8 weeks of travel this was a standout.

Room Tip: Overlooking the river is amazing

We chose this hotel based on the positive reviews we read on tripadvisor. The first clue that something was not right was the uncomfortably warm lobby on an uncomfortably warm day. When we to the room, we could not get the AC to function. When we asked at the front desk about it, we were informed that they had "forgotten" to inform us that the AC had been out for several days, and they were awaiting parts from Italy!

There was no reduction in the price, no apology, and furthermore, this hotel shows a disturbing new trend in Austrian restaurants to charge extra for breakfast.

The bathtub requires the agility of a young, athletic person to negotiate--all of this in the name of "modernity".

All in all, the most disappointing hotel of the 7 we experienced on this trip.

We selected this hotel after having looked at tripadvisor, showing it to be the best in Villach.

We'll, we are not disappointed, on the contrary, the sight from the room is indeed fabulous, but moreover, we found out that the the parking was a sort of private parking on the lowest parking level, with direct access to the hotel elevator. So we could leave the luggage in the car without having to worry about it.
Also the room was fabulous, wher the bathroom design was very innovative, architects would call this playing with space, very original.

Shortly: this is value for money.
