"A short stay at Innsbruck for the Christmas market"
Innsbruck is the capital of the tyrol and boasts several Christmas markets. Apart from the usual Gluwein, Bratwurst and chips and Gulasch suppe there are many stalls selling hand crafted items for Christmas. Sights to see: A trip up the mountain from the station near congress requires a train and two cable cars . Well worth the visit. A trip to the Stubai glacier is worth while if you want a drive out but is mainly for the skiers amongst you.
Our hotel was on the outskirts of Innsbruck but getting in and out by tram was easy. The trams run every 15 minutes and costs 2 euros each way. If you are staying longer buy a card from the machine which is cheaper but don't forget to ratify it in the machine on the bus. Most of the locals do it this way.
Everyone is friendly and the city is clean and tidy. There is no attempt to rip you off with tourist prices which are pretty stable across the area. Even in the mountain top restaurants which have you captive.
Toilets are easily available everywhere and cost between 50 & 70 cents. Pay at machine or if in city centre at the bureau adjacent.

We have stayed here on two different vacations and even went out of our way to come back this year. Loved the small town atmosphere and the hotel staff. Nice breakfast and dining room also. View of Innsbruck is breathtaking.

We stayed here as base for driving around to different ski resorts during the day. Access to the motorway is very easy and it's a short drive or walk to the city centre (about 5 minutes and 20 minutes respectively).
The hotel was perfect for this if you just want a place to rest while you check out the beautiful city of Innsbruck or want to take excursions further out.
Ideally I would have liked breakfast to be served a bit earlier than 7am but they seemed to open up a few minutes more every day.

Quaint, comfortable hotel with the nicest front desk staff ever! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend. The room was pretty basic very clean and overall the hotel is lovely. The breakfast was superb and the service outstanding. There's coffee/latte/tea available 24/7. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this wonderful, family-run property!
Hotel was excellent. Rooms were fantastic and comfortable. There was not a problem with anything. Hotel lift was great. Complimentary breakfast was a good start to the day. Would recommend staying here again. Plenty of restaurants nearby hotel.
