Alter Telegraf Hotel
Ranked #49 of 75 Hotels in Graz
Reviewed November 27, 2013

The blurb states a few minutes from the city centre. A good twenty minute walk and in the middle of nowhere in Graz. The hotel smelled and was dirty. Room payment was taken in advance and later the meal and drinks in the restaurant were demanded to be paid in cash. They would not add to the hotel bill or take credit card.
Unfortunately, the hotel falls down in all categories - distance form city, no nearby transport, bad food and rude owner. Spend a few Euro more and stay in the city

Stayed: November 2013, traveled on business

The Alte Telegraf is a good little hotel in The district of Geidorf adjacent to a Lovely Park near Karl Franzens Universität, the City itself is well known for its Universities and The Students in The City of Graz number 40 to 50,000, oh yes the Park's very good for a morning run, I know I enjoyed it. The hotel is good for those on a budget, such as myself, the rooms are not large, but they're comfortable and clean, there is a central courtyard where one can have a meal and a drink, it's very nice. Breakfast is provided, it is however very basic, but there is a nice place over the road should you want something more. The Schloßberg which sits above The City is only about 10-15 minutes walk away as indeed is The Beautiful centre of the City of Graz itself.

The hotel is located just north of downtown on a somewhat busy street, which therefore does not have the curb appeal of the restored downtown area. There is some street parking in front (which was free on Saturday evening and Sunday so we did not make use of the hotel's own facilities). We had a four person room (double bed plus pull-out couch) and full bathroom which was of good, clean quality, certainly given the price. The included breakfast was excellent.
The hotel has a restaurant as well. The quality of the food is not great but acceptable. The only negative was being overcharged during dinner: when we added asparagus and spaetzle this more than doubled the price of the entree.

the double room was quite big, it was clean but the furniture and the whole style of the room resembled the 80s. traffic noise from the street was quite disturbin

breakfast buffet was OK, no big variety but decent and plenty.

the hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the Hauptplatz through the City Park, and the Schlossberg is in the near, too.
