Hotel Schwarzer Bär, Linz
Very nice hotel in Linz
We stayed in this hotel for only 2 nights, and we would like to have stayed longer. It is an attractive hotel with courteous and mostly helpful staff. The room was spacious and well-appointed with a comfortable bed and great shower. The hotel is located near the main shopping street on which the trams run, so it is convenient to get around town. The hotel itself is on a pedestrian street, so there is no traffic noise. The area is pleasant with shops and small cafes. We had some difficulty finding a restaurant on a Saturday evening. The hotel has a restaurant but it is closed on Saturday and Sunday - very strange. Our only complaint about the hotel is that the breakfast is not included - it is an extra charge of 13 euros per person. The breakfast is a nice buffet, similar to that in many Austrian hotels. This hotel is definitely a good choice for Linz.

Awesome price for all that it has to offer
They went out of their way above and beyond for my 83 years old parent and me. The parking is awesome. They have a secure underground garage. The area is very safe and awesome location. Will come back again most definitely.

Good city centre hotel
A thoroughly enjoyable stay with good friendly welcoming service. The Breakfast charge of EUR 13 was OK but for thriftier souls there are plenty of good bakeries and cafes nearby for breakfast fodder. The tOurism office and good public transport were all nearby
