“One night stay”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We stayed here for one night: drove to town from the countryside, turned in the rental car at the nearby airport, arranged our bags, then taxi to the airport in the morning for our flights to North America.

It's on a main street, but pretty quiet for a city hotel. The room was comfortable and clean; decor is austere.

Wi-fi is free, but it was down the days we were there.

Interesting hotel staff. I went to the desk to inquire about a particular German word, and the two young women at the desk apologized that "German isn't our first language." They sounded like born and raised Americans. They said they were Romanian -- and learned English watching American TV!

Breakfast at the hotel was good, with cooked eggs to order. They don't serve dinners. There are not many restaurants in the area, but there's a big shopping center across the street -- Merkur has a cafe/restaurant open 'till 7 pm.

Taxi to/from airport is only EUR10. Bus and tram to downtown Insbruck just a few steps from the front door. Easy walk to the Botanical Garden (nice for a 1 or 2 hour visit.)

Undoubtedly the Karwendel is a bit "tired" and could do with a makeover. That said, it's good accommodation at a realistic price in quite an expensive city. The room was very large and was neat, clean and tidy (I think all rooms same size). Breakfast included the usual continental cold items (meat, cheese, etc) plus hot (sausages and scrambled egg). The staff were very polite and helpful. There is free parking on site but it's in short supply but we always managed by being creative - putting the car in what wasn't an official space (nobody minded). There is a bus stop outside the front door although at the time of our visit the main road was temporarily one-way (out of town) due to tram works so would need a short walk to get bus into town. When works finish there will be a normal tram service both ways. In fact it is possible to walk into town in about 15-20 mins, a pleasant walk.
