“Great rooms, lousy dinner”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Rooms and bathrooms are clean, well designed and generally ok. But the dinner was terrible AND expensive! We had it prepaid with a voucher, and:
- none of the foreeseen dishes was included
- The only selection available was from a low quality buffet
- We asked for water (which was included in the voucher) and we got served a couple of still water bottles... then they billed us 11€ for that! Seriously, this is Linz,not Sahara. You could go outside and have two good beers for half The price.

If you need just a place to sleep this hotel could be a good choice, but make sure NOT to eat here for any reason whatsoever.

P.s. WiFi is good (i'm writing from there)

Most conveniently located in Central Linz, facing a Park. Good breakfast options! Wi-Fi at Room! Neat and clean! Warm ambience! Walking distance to Danube! Stayed many time since the hotel has come up. Reasonably priced. I always feel at home in this hotel. Whenever, I am in Linz I am at Park Inn! At least, I visit Linz twice a year! So many tourists make Park Inn their temporary home when in Linz. In fact, I consider Linz as my second home.

Room Tip: I prefer Park Side rooms to have a good view of the park every morning!

On our frequent trips to and from Brussels we usually spend the night somewhere near Passau or Deggendorf. The unfortunate and catastrophic floodings forced us to look for another place to stay so we ended up in Linz (Linz is a disappointment as a "tourist" city by the way). The Park Inn is a fairly new hotel. The staff is very friendly, good quality service. We had dinner in the hotel's restaurant and I must say that the food and drinks were a tad overpriced compared to the quality. But that's usually the case in hotel restaurants ... and the only waiter that evening was somewhat overstretched. We got a free upgrade to a small suite with the garden view and had an excellent night's rest. Rooms are well appointed, free WIFI, flatscreen TV (no English movie channels, the Germans still dub every movie or series in German, so you either learn German or watch a DVD on your laptop - but there was CNN...) Excellent breakfast buffet...but as so often in Germany no croissants :-( you would think they don't like the French :-)

Room Tip: garden view rooms are very quiet

Modern City hotel with typical Park Inn services. Rooms are large and very clean and new, at least the one I had in the 6th floor. Also all the public areas are near and new. Friendly service and good value for the money although in my booking breakfast was not included. It cost extra 16 Euros and was of fair value, typical hotel breakfast. I booked the hotel because of a price, central location and Trip it recommendation. This turned out to a good choice. Gym is also new and has enough space and equipments for a good session. It was not crowded either. Only a minuted walk to city centre with restaurants, shops and public transport. Wifi works well and I got it for free. I liked the bed as well. No closets in the room but plenty of hangars are available.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are more quiet. Adjust the aircon so that you do not need to suffer from the noice. Dur...

A rather standard chain hotel with everything you would expect from a Park Inn hotel in Europe. The staff is though worth an extra credit for being particularly friendly and helpful. Also, the breakfast is better than in most places. For example, you get your own tea pot which is much appreciated when you like tea.
The room I got is big and contains what you would expect. The only drawback is the church in the next block which thinks it is a good idea to ring the bells each full hour during the night.
Overall I think this is a hotel worth the money and it can be recommended.

Typical city hotel. Nothing special but very practical, clean and in the centre of Linz. Bedrooms are large and have the usual facilities. I used the gym as it was pouring with rain - running machines, rowing facilities, weights etc - a bit of an unused room but equipment all good though instructions all in German
