“A very wise choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Staff at reception was perfect, efficient and smiling. My room was clean, well organized and quiet. The bed was excellent and the temperature of the room was optimal. Breakfast is good and diverse. Only flaw would be absence of wifi in the rooms, one has to go in the lobby to enjoy the internet. This is not a charming hotel, more a convenient one as it is right in front of Donau University where I had to work. I strongly recommend it if you are on a business trip. It is an excellent value and not too far of downtown Krems, a very charming Austrian city. Many thanks to Arte Hotel Krems staff, they made my business trip much easier.

Hotel lies directly accross from the Danube University Krems. Ideal for meeting/conferences there. Room (I had a "Tower Suite") was quite big and airy. They try to be a art hotel, but I guess that's a subjective thing... Breakfast was OK, but nothing to write home about. Rooms toward the street can be a bit noisy. It's only a short walk into the small streets of the medival city of Stein, with some nice restaurants and many wine cellars (Heurigen).

The hotel interior looked more like a factory. However the worst feature was the acoustics. We could hear the guests in the next room talk, take a shower and go to the toilet! The hotel does not have a restaurant and the breakfast buffet is very mediocre. The staff were pleasant and tried to be helpful. Not a comfortable place to stay.

Compact rooms with a comfortable bed which we needed after riding. The room was air-conditioned which in the unseasonably warm weather we had was a big plus. Really reminded me of university dorm accommodation. Wifi only in reception was a downside. Staff were friendly and it was a good location from which to explore Krems. Dinner was included but it was in a restaurant in town which was poor quality.

very modern, three story, hotel with wifi only in lobby. Large rooms with plenty of electrical outlets, very good shower, and temperature control. Very good breakfast, with many bicyclers staying overnight.

I have now spent three nights at this hotel on trips in June, 2010, and July, 2013. It is my choice in this part of Austria, because it is so well run. Ultramodern accommodations include hard-wired Internet in the rooms, and a well-equipped exercise room and spa. The folks at Reception could not have been more accommodating, and friendly. The garage beneath the hotel is accessed by hotel elevators, so there is no need to climb stairs with one's luggage. The hotel does not have a reataurant, per se, though there is a decent one adjacent to it, and the hotel serves a complete European breakfast as part of the room rate.

This was the last stopover on our Danube bike tour which provided a large variety of accommodation - this was certainly the most modern. The rooms are bright and very ‘groovy’ but I would say over-engineered - focusing on style over function. It took us a while to figure out how everything worked (lights, shower etc.) As others have said, the bathrooms are really only suitable for spouses or very close friends and we couldn't get the cable internet to work in the room (no wifi in the rooms, but good in the lobby). Breakfast was excellent with a broad choice and the reception staff were delightful and all spoke good English. The hotel is actually in Stein, near the university, about 500m from the river but a couple of kilometres from the centre of Krems.
