In the heart of the Old Innsbruck's pedestrian area, this hotel is said to be one of Europe's oldest hotels, and since 1390 it has welcomed nearly every king, emperor, duke, or poet who passed through Innsbruck. Emperor Joseph II, King Ludwig II of Bavaria, Goethe and Paganini all stayed here. All rooms are different, and many have been stylishly updated. Ask for 411 for a view of the iconic Golden Roof, or 504 for a view of the Clock Tower from your own private terrace
(which doubles as the hotel's little kitchen garden). One of the most recently renovated and loveliest rooms is 102, with walls three-feet thick, a 200-year-old timber ceiling, and original stained glass windows.

We were very unhappy to discover our room (large, 2nd floor, view of the gold roof) was nowhere near to the standards of the rest of the hotel. Opening our door and entering our room was like going into another hotel. Dirty, ugly drapes. Worn, "garage sale" furniture. Absolutely none of the charm the common area of the hotel had. I would not stay here again. Yes the location is great, but the noise is really something to be concerned about.
Beer trucks take a long time to unload. Innsbruck itself, was beautiful and magical.

Can't beat the location. Our room had a sitting area, so the size was fine. The staff was very nice and helpful. While we will not go to Innsbruk again (been there, done that), we would gladly stay there again and recommend it.

This was the most disappointing experience of our trip (four cities, four hotels). The hotel has a great location, wonderful history, charming public rooms, good food (both breakfast and dinner) but our room was a big disappointment which I fear is due to the fact it is now a Best Western property. The room was dark, looked thrown together, had scratchy sheets, an uncomfortable bed and cardboard feeling towels. We decided to spend a little more
money in order to stay at this recommended historical hotel and realize we should have selected Hotel Innsbruck and had dinner at the Goldener Adler. We both love history and charming places and realize that older hotels are not perfect, but the Goldener Adler seems to use this as an excuse for the appearance of their rooms and not an asset. We would not return to this hotel for lodging but had a really nice meal and would return for the food. Lots of potential that isn't being used.
