We took the Bus F from Innsbruck airport which took 20 mins to reach to bus stop "Anichstrasse” and the hotel is within a few minutes walking distance from there.
We were amazed to see the hotel building- it is several hundred years old and Mozart stayed here.
We felt proud that we stayed in this historic hotel for a night in September 2012 and what a wonderful stay! It was the Hotel is located right in the heart of the old town. The rooms were comfortable and very charming. It has a great location in the old town, just beside the Goldenes Dachi. They also served a delicious breakfast! The staffs were very helpful and friendly, went out of their way to help us and gave us a city map, directions and guided us in all respects.
Museumstrasse is only a 3 mins walk from the hotel. There we took a shuttle to go to Swarovski Crystal world. Hofburg is also a 5 mins walk. We easily walked to Nordkettenbahnen (12 min walk) to take to funicular up into the mountains. What a view!
My suggestion is to buy an Innsbruck card (24hrs/ 48hrs/ 72hrs- as per stay) from Tourist Information Centre, just 2 mins from the hotel so that you get almost everything free including the transport, tram and bus J(to Patscherkofelbahn)
We also saw Goldenes Dachi, the Hofburg palace , Nordkettenbahnen as these are within walking distance.
In addition we went to Patscherkofelbahnen where we enjoyed 360 degree view of snow-capped mountains with about 400 peaks. We took the Bus J which you can catch on MeseumStass, 2 mins from hotel.
We also went to Bergisel by taking tram no. 1 from the above mentioned MuseumStass and saw the ski jump stadium and enjoyed breath-taking view from the top. We came back by the sightseeing bus which is also included in Innsbruck card.
The hotel is 15/20 min walk from the rail station and we managed to pull our suitcases easily to get next destination.
Overall, we are happy that we stayed here and will stay again if opportunity arises.
