Grand Hotel Europa

Südtirolerplatz 2, Innsbruck, Tirol, A-6020, Austria

Opposite the train station, this five-star hotel has long provided lodging to the celebrated and wealthy in richly appointed, extremely comfortable rooms since it opened in 1869. Tina Turner, Bob Dylan, Pink, the Beatles, Boris Becker, Celine Dion, and Queen Elizabeth II have all checked in. Inside, modern Italian interior design in the extensive lobby meets traditional Tyrolian style in the restaurant Europa Stüberl. The splendid Barocksaal, a meeting room, was built in 1883 by Ludwig II's architect, and the entire hotel was painstakingly rebuilt brick by brick after being badly bomb-damaged during the war. Guiseppe the barman dispenses cocktails and information, as he has for nearly 35 years. By arrangement, you can park in the station underground parking for €15 a day, and it's linked by tunnel walkway to the hotel.
