Hotel Zur Lokomotive
Ranked #19 of 31 Hotels in Linz
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Easy to reach from the Hauptbahnhof, just pass to the left of the Ibis Hotel, turn right and there it is .The hotel has an Italian restaurant and no one could think of an Austrian restaurant, I couldn't find one either. I caught a tram (1/2/3) to the Hauptplatz, purchase a 24 hour Maxitiket for 4.00 Euros. Down a passage way is "El Greco", a Greek restaurant where , much to my surprise, I enjoyed a very good sole (the menu had English sub-titles). While my bedroom was quiet I didn't have a good nights sleep as the bed had only a duvet, either too hot or too cold. Breakfast was from 06:30 which could be useful if you had an early train to catch. the selection of food was first class. I would use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Room 445 had the sink in the next bedroom imedialty behind my bed wall.

Given the prices of hotels in Austria, I would say this is quite correct for the price it charges. The location is also very good if you are willing to visit around Linz, as it is close to the main train station. You need to walk some 10 minutes to the city center -or take the tram, which is also convenient.

The hotel is very handy to the railway station which is an easy ten minute walk. We only stayed one night at the Lokomotiv and found it very clean and comfortable with probably the most comfortable bed of all those we slept in during our five weeks travelling in Europe. The room was on the top floor and was huge including a spacious sitting area with comfortable sofas. Reception and checkout staff were very friendly. After chatting with the receptionist on our departure we were presented with a bottle of excellent white wine. It was a nice gesture and we would certainly stay at the Lokomotiv again.

Please note the main picture on trip advisor is wrong! (hotel in the countryside with pool)...

Hotel Lokomotive is just across the road from Linz main station (behind Ibis) . I have stayed in both . Hotel Lokomotive is cheaper with a small free car park (Ibis is pay) and includes breakfast (Ibis is extra) . Staff friendly and helpful on reception (printed the road directions for airport for us) . It is clean and also had free wi-fi and for one night with breakfast we were happy with our stay.
It is unrefurbished and not as smart regarding the new interior of the Ibis , but that is reflected in the price. IF you want a low cost hotel opposite station Lokomotive is a good option , if you want a smart modern hotel and happy to pay more for this the Ibis is a good option.

Very pleasant family running hotel in Linz, few steps from the beautiful Main Station. Good restaurant in house. Quick check in and check out. Very clean rooms, flatscreen tv, central heating, spacious bathroom with shower. Breakfast with big choice of food. Staff very kind and polite. City center 10-15 minutes walk from hotel. /Landstrasse, Main Square, Danube, Pöstlingberg, beautiful panorama/. Definitely recommend!

I stayed here 1 night and found that enough. The staff is friendly and it's close to the railway station but the bed wasn't very comfy, the shower was poor and it was pretty noisy. Breakfast was okay but eggs were raw yet. Convenient was the Italian restaurant in the same (the included breakfast is served in the same place) so I didn't have to go out for dinner. Note: you have the pay seperately for the restaurant. It's not a bad place but it certainly could have been better for the price you pay. It's not really cheap after all.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as special Linz Weekend offer, where you have 2 nights in a hotel with breakfast and Linz Card for 3 days. Hotel is well situated with free parking in backyard. Staff is really friendly. You get common continental breakfast with a lot of options, what you can eat. There is a pizzeria in the hotel, which is open till 10 PM. Room and bathroom was clean (except corners under the table, vacuum it would not harm, but that's ok), we got towels, soap and shampoo. Room was equipped with a desk, 2 chairs, night table with small lamps, large wardrobe and TV. There was a bit hot, in the room, but it's possible to fully open windows to ventilate. I could recommend this hotel for you.
