The hotel is very close to the JKU university. It is a no frills place, but very neat and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had decent number of options and was tasty too. The wifi had decent speed.

The hotel's flair is more like a hostel, don't expect too much of comfort. I stayed there several times, the cleanliness of the rooms is certainly improvable. Interesting is the bath room, an orange one-piece all-in plastic cabin. The breakfast is good and decent.

I was there for a working visit at the university. The place was very convenient, close to the campus. Very clean room.The bathroom is quite small, but this is not really a problem. The employees are nice and helpful.

Huge hotel made from previous university dormitory. Reception service ok. Enough space in rooms, new furniture, LCD TVs. Bathroom with WC looks like from one piece. Quite strange is separated beds - no matrimonial. Breakfast in self service style with huge choice. There is also swiming pool 25 m and other sport halls etc. Nothing special, but for overnight stay...

I've given the 3 stars for the staff as they were very friendly and tried their best to speak English for us. The hotel was easy to find and the sat nav took us straight there. The reception area looked quite modern but once we'd got to the 2nd floor where our room was it was a long and cold...

It was not that good I can say. The bathroom was small, the design of the rooms cheap, too many floors (waiting long in the elevator) and no air-condition. Some friends of mine had to walk pretty long from the elevator to their room. The Wi-Fi was ok (although you had to put the username and password often).

For the last three years my university booked my a room there during each of my short visits to Linz. This is the last one. The rooms stink like hell (each of the ones I had). The kitchen drain dates from the fifties and has never been changed, in ANY of the rooms, which results in a terrible smell additional...

I stayed there during my business trip in Linz. It was not that bad, but my feeling was more like staying in a dormitory. Old style furniture, a kind of historic TV, etc. There is a free Wi-Fi, but it was not working very good. But for that price it was not that bad. Breakfast was in buffet style, variety...

The hotel is fine, very well located if you are going to Johannes Kepler university. The breakfast was very good and. It´s easy to take the tram down town and Linz town is a very beautiful place with lots of museums and restaurants and the Beautiful Donau and surrondings.

This is one of the best stays I had in years. The hotel is not in the center of the city but in a corner of the university tho' going to Linz is just a hop into the tram. The rooms are like student dorms but I found them to be perfect. Two bedroom ones are spacious and silent. The...
