5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Oh No ! Another Holiday Inn, I've stayed in over 100 different ones. BUT,
This one is the best value for money HI by far.. From the efficient and friendly check in. Quality of food. Choice of wine. Ambiance of the restaurant and bars. Location-riverside setting.Fresh breakfast with someone to cook you eggs as you like. More like a boutique hotel. A refreshing change from the vast majority of Holiday Inns. Value for money 110 Euro's inc breakfast. Superb. Stayed 9 April 13.

Room Tip: Ask for riverview

During an international work assignment, I lived in the Holiday Inn, Villach for over a month. This hotel exceeded my expectations with its clean and comfortable rooms, friendly service, delicious breakfast, and hospitality. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Villach and my room overlooked the river and quaint Villach town. It was stunning to look outside and see rivers, interesting architecture and a mountain range in the background.

Given my extended stay in the hotel, I was fortunate enough to experience how wonderful the staff is. They did everything: hire a cab for me every morning, handled my laundry, and gave me recommendations around town. They were very pleasant and helpful at all times. I arrived in a cab from Slovenia in the middle of the night. Once I was checked in, I realized I left my work computer in the cab heading back to Slovenia. Due to my jet lag, lack of sleep, and inability to speak German, I was in a full panic. The front desk gentleman calmed me down and miraculously tracked down my cab… I seriously have no idea how he did it (given the cab was from a different country). He refused to accept my tip to thank him for his help. I am forever grateful!

The breakfast at the hotel was something I looked forward to everyday. It was amazing and one of the best breakfast places I have experienced… and it was in a hotel!

The gym had a great variety of clean and new equipment to use. I used the gym facilities everyday and thought it was one of the best hotel gyms I have ever used.

The rooms are clean and modern and comfortable. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Villach. It was a wonderful experience and the hotel and staff made my long work trip much more enjoyable.

Located in the hart of Villach, hotel is modern, refined and comfortable, perfect for a relaxing weekend. Everything is a one minute distance! Spa is clean and very smooth, there are gym and massage too. At the bar you have a large choise of wines and drinks, and you can taste them sitting right in front of the Drava river. Restaurant is pretty good and not that expensive, although city offers several good options.
Wish you a great week end!

We stayed there for a week, and everything was fine - hotel is fresh, bright coloured, clean and very pleasant. The lady at check in, Beatrix, was very efficient, we were greeted in a professional manner, and she even tried upselling :) When she found out we came for skiing, she mentioned the hotel's discount for ski pass, which was very to the point, and we used the opportunity. We only did not try out the hotel's restaurant so, cannot say anything about it.

I stayed here for many months with work. It was flawless. The restaurant is one of the best, if not the best, in Villach and surrounding areas.

If you are travelling to Villach this hotel is the obvious choice.

I have stayed in this hotel now during some business trips and I really like it. It has got everything you wish from a 4-star hotel...plus a few nice surprises.
The rooms are perfectly clean, quiet, and nicely decorated, the view is perfect (pick those with the mountain view). The service is friendly and helpful.
What's definitely surprising is the food: the breakfast buffet offers a huge variety, everything of very good qualitly, including freshly made fried eggs, omelettes etc.on request.
And after a long business I love to indulge myself with an exquisite dinner in the hotel restaurant (top rated in Villach). In summer you can eat on a terrace just above the river.

Excellent stay at Holiday Inn in Villach. Room is perfect: large, nice furniture, design accessories, separate rooms for shower and toilets....++++++!
Common areas very warm and nice, gym, wellness area small but pretty...everything is really top level. I do not remember any other 4* hotel in Europe with even similar level of services.
Restaurant is one more point of excellence: food is delicious, service is very good and, beside all, wine list, ron and cigar lounge with a cozy atmosphere.
It is highly suggested for business traveller but I'd also recommend it for a family week end to visit the neighbouroughs.

Room Tip: Try the restaurant: it's fantastic!
