If you like charming Austrian-style luxury, then you will love the Goldener Hirsch in the heart of old town on a pedestrian street. When we travel in Europe, we like to stay in the quaint places rather than large American-style modern hotels. When we were checking in, we were informed that we had been upgraded to a suite. We were totally surprised and very appreciative. The suite had a lovely living room, huge modern bathroom with both shower and tub, and a large bedroom with a desk in an alcove. It all had a definite Austrian flavor being decorated in the small print fabrics that are typical of Austria. Adding to the decor were several old painted/stenciled chests....just lovely. Everyone at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommend. Great location.
Octoberfest was going on and the streets were a bit crowded, but since the GH is located at the far end of Getreidegasse, there really wasn't a nosie problem.
