Austria Trend Hotel Schillerpark4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
A short taxi ride from the central station this large business hotel has all bases covered. A quick check-in process, wide corridors, compact rooms with all facilities and services carefully considered. Clean, calm and relaxed all linked in a convenient package. I went down to dinner and was served very quickly, very friendly staff and with a quick and tasty dinner of meat and veg. Nice glass of local beer. Right in town so lots of other eating options nearby plays the casino right next door.
This hotel is located at the far end of a very small park, set back from the main shopping street in Linz; the hotel is also adjacent to a casino. If you are a tourist, it is a fine base from which to explore this city. There's a tram stop on the far end of the park, and trams seem to arrive there every few minutes. Hop on any tram, go three stops, and you're at the Hauptplatz, the center for tourist activities (and the tourist office). You can also easily walk to the Hauptplatz from the hotel; it's a pleasant stroll of perhaps 15 minutes. This is a non-smoking hotel, a huge plus. My junior suite was large and nicely decorated. There was a comfortable bed (2 single mattresses combined in a larger frame; this seems to be common in Austria), a good-sized flatscreen TV, a minibar, and a coffeemaker, in addition to a small sofa, chair, and work desk partially obscured by the television. This hotel has air conditioning, a luxury in Austria, but incredibly, the temperature dial has no numerical display of any kind on it. You can see that turning the dial one way will lower the temperature, while turning it the other way has the opposite effect, but really? No numbers? I have to guess to find my comfort zone? The staffer showing me the room actually apologized for this, so they must get a lot of complaints about it. The bathroom was quite sizable, with a tub, a separate shower that can fit at least two people, a separate toilet, and an absurdly cheap hairdryer. I was in Room 435, and it was very quiet. The windows in this room actually open if you want to get some fresh air. I did not eat in the restaurant or go to the casino, so I cannot comment on either. My only other issue here is that a few of the personnel have a questionable attitude. Most were cheerful and anxious to help (especially Anthony at the front desk), but the first night I stayed there, I noticed there was no “Do Not Disturb” sign to be found. I called down to the front desk to inquire about getting one; the young lady who answered the phone first questioned if I had looked for it, then said, “Maybe it is in the closet”---and that was the extent of her suggestion. Overall, however, my experience here was very good, and I would stay again. Tip: At this writing, there is a wonderful Farmers' Market held in the Hauptplatz on Tuesday and Friday mornings, with vendors offering everything from fish to flowers, meat to “marmeladen” (preserves), pastry to pumpkinseed oil to produce.
We highly recommend this hotel for its staff who went beyond the call of duty to help us with a problem that happened during our stay in Linz. Their solution to our problem was unique, clever and done with great generosity of their time. In decades of travel, only one other hotel had service that equalled that at the Austria Trend. The hotel is as convenient as you can find in the city center. Parking in the hotel garage was very secure and spacious and at a reasonable cost for a tight city center. Reception was friendly, efficient and comprehensive. The lifts are secure, spacious and speedy. The hotel is modern and attractive inside. Do not be fooled by the exterior. Our room faced the center court (as we requested). It was spacious, but had space for unloading only one suitcase at a time. Closets were spacious. Our room was carpeted. We prefer the cleaner appearance of wood, but the hotel provided slippers and robes as part of the room provisions. There were numerous electrical outlets for all our devices. The Free WiFi was password secured and had a strong signal and good speed. Desk space was adequate, if not generous. There was one chair and a mini-bar. The bathroom was the best equipped on our 3-week trip. Amenities included 2 towels each, wash cloths, floor mats, above average soaps, shampoos and lotions. The hair dryer was powerful but quiet. The breakfast offered hot and cold items. Food quality was well above average and selections were generous. Hot beverage machines provided a wide variety of items. On the downside, the area was not well designed. The eating area serves several different functions during the day and is not quite suitable for any of them. The space is difficult to organize and I have no better solution. The layout has caused the staff to do little more than set the tables, refill breakfast items and remove dishes after use. Guests were frequently waiting for each other to get out of their way. Try as hard as the staff may, breakfast is hectic. Despite a few minor shortcomings, we highly recommend the Austria Trend Hotel Schillerpark. It is nearly perfect for vacationers and business travelers alike.
Tasty breakfast is Great! The hospitality was fine. The rooms are big and clean (air conditioner is good) The Hotel is in the main street – many restaurants and many stores for shopping. The area is very quiet Parking is cost 18 euro per day, Wifi is very good and free.
I stayed here for a night, the rooms, staffs and food was excellent. I surely recommend the travellers to stay in this hotel if you visit to linz and please book your room in advance to avoid disappointments ( most of the time the hotel is fully booked ).......
Café am Park outstanding meal combined with excellent service well done. Fixed menu delivered perfectly, don't normally comment on fixed menus as our experience has been to date poor. I would recommend this restaurant
We stayed her for a night before a cycling trip down the Danube. The reception staff were excellent especially Martha. All queries were answered promptly. The standard hotel room was comfortable - no issues - though the view over a flat roof was less than inspiring! Breakfast was very good indeed with an excellent range of food available. They have excellent cycle storage provision.
Friendly and helpful staff Big room and bathroom Very clean Room no 510 sometime wifi is not good Breakfast is good Dinner is great Walking distance from the station around 7-10 min On the main road to the main square
We decided to pay just a little more money for the hotel than we thought we would and it paid off thousand times! This hotel prices are underrated because the service and confort you get is exeptional.
The hotel has decent sized rooms and free high speed internet in the lobby and rooms. Situated right next to a Casino (just make sure men pack a suit jacket or you'll be charged a 3Euro rental fee). Free welcome drink at the hotel bar is a nice touch - choice of beer or cocktails. The city centre is a few blocks away but with comfortable walking shoes you can easily explore. Best tip - FEED THE PARKING METERS! We thought we'd save money by not parking in the expensive underground parking garage and instead take advantage of the free street parking in the evening. We set our alarm for 8am (when the charges start) but by 8:03am we already had a ticket. Definitely took away from what would have been a perfect weekend getaway. Lesson learned.
