    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Grauer Bar Innsbruck

    Great Grauer Baer Experience

    from

    My family (2 adults, 2 young children) stayed at the Grauer Baer for 1 week's skiing in Feb 04. We had a Suite which was good value comprising separate double room and large sitting room with comfortable double sofa-bed, table+chairs TV etc plus a large bathroom; bath plus walk-in shower and double hand-basins. Facilities throughout Hotel excellent, staff friendly and helpful. Hotel arranged childcare for our youngest child which was great although not cheap. Food good too. Located in the Old Town with excellent sight-seeing opportunities. Great for skiing with 6 areas to enjoy using free ski-bus, although we used own vehicle - typically 15-30 minutes drive to ski areas. Overall, strongly recommended.

    Grauer Bar a lovely, typically European hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Grauer Bar for 9 days in Feb. and our group of 10 (2 families with 6 children between us) enjoyed the hotel, its staff and amenities very much. This was our 6th European ski trip (and probably our 10th visit to Innsbruck ) and the hotel is typical in terms of the food offered, size of the rooms, and decor. It was better than most in the terrific location, quiet rooms, friendliness of the staff, helpfulness of the front desk, and common areas. Our children didn't even whine over the lack of English tv but why in the world would they have expected this 5000 miles from home? The group of 48 should get out a little more - imagine ... preferring McDonald's for breakfast over the offerings of the Grauer Bar.

    Grauer Baer makes 1st Austrian trip memorable

    from

    We read that horrible review of the Grauer Baer about two weeks before our trip, and we certainly were rather nervous about our visit to this hotel. My husband and I were going with our friends' ski club and were so excited about our first visit to Austria (my first trip out of North America and my husband's first to Austria; he traveled extensively in the Navy). I do not know what those 48 people wanted for accommodations, and we were more than pleased with the breakfasts and dinners. The wait staff would bend over backward in serving us and making sure we were waited on with only the utmost courtesy. The European breakfast was fabulous: hard rolls, breads, 4 fruit juices, 3 different kinds of perserves, soft-boiled eggs, out-standing meats and cheeses, fruit and of course cereal and yogurt. The rooms were spotless and we had plenty of room. Dinners always had the finest and freshest of ingredients. For those who think it's necessary to "get a good meal at McDonald's" stay in the United States. The hotel is in a great location; we'd go back and stay there again. We thank all of the hotel staff for their kindnesses and genuine caring hospitality.

    Grau Bauer Okay

    from

    Grauer hotel is pretty nice. Very conveniently located. Suggestions for improvement: brighter lighting, wash clothes, Some more English speaking TV channels besides CNN or English subtitles.

    Excellent Hotel-Great Location

    from

    Excellent Hotel. We (20+) stayed at the Grauer Baer while in Innsbruck for a ski holiday (18-23 Jan 04). The hotel is a typical 4 star European hotel. We were on the meal plan which included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was cheeses, fruit, breads/rolls and cereal with scrambled eggs/sausage. Dinner was always four well prepared courses with two options for the main entree. The entree selections changed daily and included pork, beef, chicken, fish, and pasta recipes. Additionally, the hotel has is a fine dinning restaurant that has an excellent menu with a good selection of wines. The staff was always very courteous and rapidly responded to all requests. The rooms have few amenities by American standards, but are clean and well maintained with ample storage for ski and daily clothing in the wardrobes. If you have a room facing the street, it is nosy with the window open shutting it solved the problem. The only negative comment I have is the ski storage room is too small to easily store ski equipment. In summary, I would return to the hotel. It has an outstanding location, close to Old Town and attractions, and provides all the comforts needed for an enjoyable European holiday.

    Wonderful experience

    from

    A group of 12 spent 7 nights in the hotel January, 2004 and all felt it was a wonderful experience. The staff was attentive, the food good, and the rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious (by European standards).

    Only English channels on TV were CNN and CNBC but we weren't there to watch tv but have an European exprience. Hotel centrally located to attractions in Innsbruck. Everyone in the group agreed that if they were to return to Innsbruck the Hotel Grauer Bar will be the place to stay.

    Horrible Hotel Disaster

    from

    48 of us agree HORRIBLE DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME Food horrible, service rude, no amenties, less than a ONE STAR HOTEL - no drawers to put clothes away - live out of luggage all week - DANGEROUS SLIPPERY TUBS - Only time we had good food was when we paid for our lunchs out and the 2 dinners we had away from the hotel. Very Noisy, street nosie all night, lighting horrible = 20 W bulbs - no coffe/tea pots, nothing - had to request clean glasses, clean soap, finally insisted on some kind of bath mat - we were all afraid to take showers - side of tub much too high - on and on We were looking for a McDonalds, Burger King, or Waffle house to get some breakfast on and on Just DO NOT waste your time or money.

    Wonderful hotel!

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Grauer Baer for six nights in January 2001 and loved it. Our room was large and very comfortable. The bathroom floor was heated! We thought the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We are actually going to do the same trip again in two weeks, except this time we are taking 10 of our friends with us.

    We feel sure they will enjoy it as much as we did. I highly recommend the Grauer Baer!

    Charming & Great Location

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Grauer Baer, APRIL 2003. It's newly renovated. Quaint mix of old charm with fresh light colors. The rooms are large with very nice furnishings and moderm bathrooms, very clean and the service was friendly and accommodating. The food in the resturant was delicious and nicely presented. The location is ideal, a short walk to the historical district and shopping. I highly recomend it.

    Best Hotel in Innsbruck

    from

    For the past 16 years I have led a group a skiers to Innsbruck. We have stayed at the Grauer Bar the last 14 years. In that time the hotel have been updated at least four times. The staff, led by the owners of the hotel have been great. They have gone out of their way to help first time visitors to Innsbruck. The newest rooms are wonderful. The food in the restaurant is wonderful, but travel a few blocks to the Kaiser Stube for the ribs.

    Up early for the next stage of our adventure...a minor hiccup when we realised the key to the safe was lost (note to hoteliers: combination locks are the way to go)...anyway, this was quickly sorted without any deaths and by 7.30am Andreas and Amanda had us on the road again. We left Engleberg in the rain..(Angels Town) which isn't really conducive …

After afternoon tea ( they can't make decent coffee but who care) we headed off to Innsbruck, and some more beautiful country side. The green fields or paddocks in my lingo is wonderful. Very little snow on the highest mountain. Had a long time in bus so pleased to be to be off. A clear sunny ...

    Today was our one and only day in Austria. We didn't have to be at breakfast until 8am so we got to sleep in. But of course I got up at 6am and went on a run around Seefeld(aka the town I'm staying in). Our first stop today was Wilten Basilica. It was beautiful! Next we went to the historic Winter Olympic Games site. We got to see where the ski jumping events took place. We had free time in Innsbruck to walk around and shop. We stopped at the famous Swarovski ...

It was a lot of fun. We spent the rest of the night walking around the town, eating ice cream and laughing. I can't believe that I come home in 5 days! I'm excited to come home but at the same time I don't want to ...
