“expected more but still good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

First of all, is it a business hotel, which means you have excellent access to the highway and a big enough park deck.
Big minus is the lack of air conditioning in the rooms, the open style bathroom and the noisy rooms (too close to the highway, which is especially annoying as you have to open the windows due to the lack of A/C)

NIce welcome, clean and smart. First impresions were good. Nice room, good use of space.
No air con though. It was very stuffy, nice big window to open but air con would have been nice.
Great food, nice healthy salad bar with lots of choice. Staff were helpful. You pay for wi-fi after 30 minutes free use. Nothing to complain about really. I wish it were closer to town it's along the Danube quite a bit and after a long days cycle we didn't really feel like walking, so we used taxi's.
Something to bear in mind.

Stayed for second time in this hotel for Ars Electronica Festival. We paid for the room more than last year but hoped that it will be good as it was.
Unfortunately, we get some very basic room with worn out mattress, without slippers and bathrobe (4 stars hotel) and high way oriented. Plus, our blankets were winter made, and outside was 30 degrees.
The price for breakfast (which is very good) is absolutely over rated (15 Euros per person) and for that money you can have a dinner in a one of best restaurants in Linz.
So, I guess that we will have to find some other hotel for our stay in Linz next year!

Alltough in general the staff were polite and helpful our stay was marred by the fact that, on the second day, we returned to find out that the bar and resturant area were to be ripped out and replaced for the new year! At no time, when booking or on arrival, were we made aware of this! This left us eating breakfast or dinner, in an austere looking conference room (which on the one night we had dinner there was unheated) some distance from the kitchen, for the rest of our stay.With no bar area in which to relax,after a day out, we were forced to stay out in town or sit in our rooms.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2008

MY daughter and Bernese mountain dog joined my husband who was in Linz for business had had 2 rooms at the Steigenberger.

Location was good for business being very close to the ringroad, although a little far out of town for sightseeing, so had to drive everywhere.

Hotel was accomodating of our slightly large dog, albeit at a charge of 10 euros per night, and we only had one problem concerning my dog barking at a large group of Russian guests (men) who were congregated around the lifts on our floor, close to our room, generally having a party and being intimidating to the guests (especially the females) and my dog who was a little traumatised by the experience and barked at them. This was at 10.30PM and some other guests complained about the barking which was badly handled by the hotel, i.e. it is ok to party in the corridor of an hotel, but not ok for the dog to get upset. This episode was not repeated since the partying guests were spoken too.

However, the dog was mosly welcome in the hotel, both in the bar and in the restaurant (on one occasion), and didn't seem too bother too many of the guests.

Hotel rooms were ok, overlooking the coutyard with a partial view of the Danube. Furnishings were ok. Bathrooms were clean, although no tubs, only showers.

Breakfasts were excellent, although a little busy at times and difficult to find a table (these were not assigned).

Generally an OK stay.

  • Liked — Breakfast and proximity to the river.
  • Disliked — No real bar area since adjoined busy restaurant and conference centre. No where to meet and relax, hence men partying in the hotel corridors!
