“Great location!”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

We stayed at the Basic Hotel for a stopover in Innsbruck and it turned out to be an excellent choice for a short stay. The hotel is right in the city center - the historic old town is a 3 min walk away and (at least during summer) there is a very nice beach club with river view just 100m from the hotel. The room itself was spacious and clean with a brand new bathroom.

My definite recommendation for a short term stay - for a longer stay this place might be a bit too anonymous.

Great hotel if you're in Innsbruck. Clean modern rooms, perfect location a few hundred yards from the old town. There is free parking, however, this is for about 4 cars! We had to use overnight car park nearby which was about 17E, however, staff told us when people were checking out the next day so that we could steal their space.
The rooms have great bathrooms with huge walk-in showers. There was no air-con, but a huge fan in the room did the job. We were overlooking the street and it was quite noisy, but you could ask for a room to the rear. We didnt have breakfast and went to the cafe next door which was great. Overall this is a great hotel if you're visiting Innsbruck. The only minor complaint is that there were no ironing facilities at all. It might seem very minor, but wearing a crushed shirt on a Saturday night isnt the best.
By the way, Innsbruck is absolutely beautiful!!

We went to Innsbruck for a weekend to ski together with our 13 months baby.
I found the Basic Hotel at trip advisor and must say that I already recommended it to others...
Excellent location it is walking distance from the city center.
Room was simple but clean and the baby cot was also provided without any additional costs.
The room had nice views from the montains and the breakfast they provide next door is also very good.
Reception helped as we tried to find a ski place that also had day care and recommended Schlick 2000.
Perfect weekend.

We had a one night stopover in Innsbruck and thankfully, because of other reviews on TripAdvisor, we chose wisely when it came to picking a hotel. Maybe the best thing about our experience at Basic Hotel was that the guy at the front desk was extremely helpful. Not only did he help us with getting around in the city, but he made space for our rental car around back so we didn't have to pay for parking down the street. The location is ideal, whether you want to walk or take public transportation - there's definitely no need to use your car once it's parked. Connected to the hotel is a nice cafe for breakfast and a couple doors down was a nice store for late night sandwiches, snacks, and drinks. There are dozens of restaurants and shops in the old town / open market area which is a stones throw away. And finally, the rooms were modern and clean - a cool little studio setup. Oh, and the price we got this hotel at was very affordable.

I guess the only negative you might find about this location is that it is on a main road that runs through the town, and there is a public transportation stop across the street, so street noise might be an issue if you're a light sleeper. But again, we found these possible "negatives" to be a positive though when it came to location. Personally, we didn't have issues getting some sound sleep... I highly recommend Basic Hotel.

We found the Basic Hotel at the last minute for a one night stay our on our way to Venice.
1,9 euros for the bus from the train station. The bus literally stops right in front of the hotel. I think it is about the 4th stop. There is a small lift. As our room was on the first (2nd) floor. The room was very comfortable and clean, the bed one of the most comfortable on our trip. The bathroom was uniquely situated and I enjoyed the room setup. Flat screen TV, wifi in room (ask for the password from the desk staff) , we had a front facing room and the only noise was the jack hammer in the street, as there was some construction on the morning we were leaving. The staff apologized. Obviously nothing they could have done to alleviate.
The staff was helpful and recommended we take the hop on/off bus as our time was limited. We enjoyed some history and many of the sights. City center within a block, many eateries nearby, market just around the corner. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: From other reviews ask for one to the rear

One thing that made this hotel number one is its location. It is located just a few blocks away from the major area of restaurants and the river.

The rooms are modern, very new and clean. The place is really BASIC, you get a basic shower that is open . We had a room on the 1st floor(which is actualy on the 2nd floor) overlooking the mountains and a marketplace.

Parking is free at the back of the hotel provided there is still space for your car when u check in
Internet is free but u have to key in a new password every 3 hrs(limit of 3 hrs)
It has a small cafe at the ground level ,breakfast is at euros 3.8
