For an ancient building, this is an excellent hotel. There are some modern improvements but basically you always feel like you are staying in an historic building. I enjoyed exploring every corner and floor. The manager, Eloise, is a wonderful, jovial soul. He is prompt in responding in every request and cooks up a great breakfast. The room was large and spotlessly clean. There were no luggage racks or roomy closets so we lived out of our suitcases on the floor. As for location, it is on the outskirts of Innsbruck, about 20 minutes by city bus to the historic district. Goldeneye Engl is close to everything in Hall in Tirol. The UNESCO world heritage site is right across the street. Great restaurants are behind the hotel and up the hill. We chose this hotel as a last minute addition to our trip through Europe. We are glad we did.
