“A very nice room - but strange paint odor in corridors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

We stayed for 1 night at this hotel, as members of a tour group.
The room we got in the 2nd floor was modern and nice, but a bit small.
There was a minibar, aircon unit (not active), large plasma TV and a stereo set in our room, but no kettle.
Bathroom was nice (and seperate toilet chamber) with soft towels.
Bed was excellent to sleep in.
Breakfast had a nice selection of food (some vegetables as well!)
There was one computer by reception desk with free internet to use by guests.
The only problem was a strong smell of paint in the corridors, which may be just a temporary situation.
Hotel is located outside town center.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. My visit to Klagenfurt was to see Austria v Slovakia in a football friendly game at the stadium used Euro 2008. The hotel was some 20 minute walk from the city centre. It was a good hotel. The rooms were fine and had all the amenities you needed. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was simply fantastic which an outstanding choice. They have bikes on site that you can use. I had one for 8 hours and cycled around Klagenfurt and the lake Worthorsee nearby. Both are lovely places. I would recomend a visit to Klagenfurt and surrounding area. Overall, there are hotyels much nearer the city cente but if you like a strollthen this is fine. There isn't a lot around the hotel to do but I found a local bar "Oke" where the barman was such a nice person to talk to. All staff in the hotel spoke good English. They made you feel very welcome. I enjoyed my stay immensly. If you are looking to visit the football stadium then this hotel is quite some way away. It took me 50 minutes to walk back to the hotel but felt totally safe in doing so even though the game did not finish until 22.20pm.

We stayed in July 2011 for the Ironman. Hotels for this weekend book out a year ahead, so I got in early. Booking by email etc was excellent with very prompt replies, and no problem changing from a twin to a single, then back to a double.

The location is about 1.6km to the east of the centre on a busy-ish road. Our room was 202 and looked out on the side street with a view of distant mountains. The room was a good size, probably fitted out in the mid 90s but amazingly clean, and comfortable beds. Bathroom had a big bath with a shower over it.

The service was simply amongst the best I have ever had and that is based on dozens of yearly hotel stays. The owner is 100% on top of what is going on, had a huge locked room available for all the 20+ Ironman athletes to assemble and store bikes and boxes, plus also had a small fleet of town bikes to borrow (free!) to cycle around town. When these ran out he magically sourced more, quite possibly brand new, within a few hours. There is a supermarket and huge bike store about 100m away (out of town direction, across main road). Parking is free and easy to find a place.

Breakfast was superb. Huge range, lots of fresh bread, plus all the ham, cheese and cooked options. On race day he served breakfast from 4am, and this not only included ALL the standard stuff, but additionally rice and pasta! We did not eat any other meals there.

He then hires (and does not charge for) a bus to take anyone who wants to to go to the race start. He does this as he knows his location is not as perfect.

The only downside is that we like to sleep with the windows open (and the weather is nice and cool at night in July) but although we were on the side street, it was still too noisy so we shut the windows. On the plus side there is superb aircon and triple glazing.

Technology wise there was a big flatscreen tv, and best of all free and very fast wifi all over the hotel with hassle free access (no need to reenter codes daily)

The Ironman race start is 5k to the west of the city centre. If I could not get a hotel right there (which would be expensive) Aragia would be my first port of call.

(And the Ironman course is STUNNING!)

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back

Well this was a gem, it has it all & just a short walk to town.
From our arrival to departure it was a pleasure to stay here.
We wish that we had 2 days to be able to enjoy this wonderful little town far too much to take in in just an afternoon.
The dinner in the restuarant & the breakfast was good, other than the fact that pets are allowed in the dining area.
Friendly staf,f air conditioning , bar fridge clean & tidy, thanks Aragia for making our stopover wonderful.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2009

I was a solo traveler accompanying extended family who had 3 young children under the age of five. I reserved a single room for 58 euro which was compact but somehow managed to neatly fit the needed amenities such as wardrobe, desk, flat screen satellite tv, stereo, mini bar, room safe, hairdryer, telephone, wireless internet – even a glove warmer. There are also ski mountains nearby. The carpets looked brand new and the bathroom sparkled. My extended family enjoyed a two bedroom suite that perfectly suited the parents and two kids and was spacious enough to add a portable cot we’d brought along for the baby – all at a reasonable price. The complimentary hot and cold breakfast included scrambled or boiled eggs, sausage, toast, delicious flaky pastries, yogurt, cereal, a wide array of cheeses, meats, breads, olives and spreads – definitely a huge bonus! The staff spoke English very well and were both welcoming and extremely helpful in determining local attractions and directions. The owner even rustled up some toy gifts for the kids as a lovely parting gift. We would stay here again in an instant – it is a gem of a find and worth the stay.

We booked the Aragia through Octopus travel.Dec 11 - 13 2004. ON the internet form we were given the option of single, twin or double room, and we chose the latter. On arriving at the hotel we found two twins pushed together, two duvets, two mattresses and a 5 cm wooden gap between the beds. Does no-one do double beds any more?
The hotel is exactly as described, friendly, comfortable, quiet, the staff helpful and genuinely pleased to have English visitors,(which makes a pleasant change!) but best of all was the extensive, generous, varied and tasty breakfast, with both hot and cold dishes. A very definite plus. Klagenfurt also has one of the best Christmas markets I've visited, attractive, unhurried and not too crowded. We had a great weekend. So, out of 10? 7 .
