On our last night in Venice we went to see Vivaldi's Four Seasons, performed in a small concert hall. The musicians were amazing. When the concert was finished we had to walk through St Marc's Square which had decided to flood while we were in the concert. So we rolled up our pants and took off our shoes and walked through the flooded Square. This morning started with an early breakfast and boat ...
... tacky Austrian yodelling and dancing nights where they pack as many people they can into a hall, give you two drinks and show some traditional tyrolian dancing, music and singing. They finished by singing some song for each of the countries represented there. I reckon you would need more than two drinks to enjoy the show. Tomorrow we head to St Mortitz through the Engadine Valley. Shops aren't usually open on Sundays but hopefully that won't be the ...
... seeing Venice on TV or in films. Speaking of films, we witnessed a bit of a horror film whilst we were sat down taking in St Marks Square. A seagull was flying in our direction, with something very large in its beak. So big was it's find, that it was struggling to gain altitude to enjoy its meal. As it got closer, the tasty morsel became clearer. The seagull had caught a pigeon. Unfortunately the seagull lots its battle with gravity, and settled in the busiest square in Italy to ...

Glorious, glorious sleep! Who would have thought grown adults could sleep so well inside a wooden barrel on an Austrian hillside! Whilst Paulie set up the breakfast camp, with tea in hand of course, I went to buy supplies from the camp supermarket and we enjoyed a lazy breakfast of fried eggs, tomatoes and continental rye bread in the sun.
We then had an ‘adult’ shower – that sounds rude ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Innsbruck
We were only for one night. Very clean, rooms & bathrooms a bit small but not very expensive and very good location. Typical business hotel.
Great value and service
We stayed at the Ibis in June 2006. It is not located in the best part of town but very handy for Trains and Buses,both stations just a few yards away.The rooms were spotless,simple furnishings but well designed with King size beds. Breakfast is extra(9 euros) with a good choice and value for money. The staff were most pleasant and helpful, recommending restaurants and places of interest. The old town is a 10 minute stroll plenty of interesting shops and Museums, the town in general is very safe both day and night. This is a modern Hotel, just over a year old and excellent value for money.
Very comfartable clean room, perfect location, good breakfast, friendly staff. Free internet use. I would recommend to all and definetly go back again.

There were 2 couples who stayed at the Ibis hotel in Innsbruck for 4 nights and had quite different first impressions - one couple had no problem checking in, and found their room to be clean, functional and comfortable. The other couple were given a room (and key!) to a room that belonged to someone else, then moved to a smoking room (despite having booked a non-smoking room) and were finally, after an hour's wait, given a non-smoking room that had a blocked toilet! However, the Ibis' location (just opposite the train station) made it easy to get to, and it was only a 5-10 minute walk from the old town. The fact that it wasn't in the old town meant that we weren't kept awake all night by the sound of firecrackers going off at all hours (as they tend to do, over the Xmas & New Year). The buffet-style breakfast was one of the highlights, and the free internet access also has to earn the Ibis another gold star. Overall, we'd have to say that this hotel is a bit of a mixed bag - it's a clean, efficient, contemporary hotel which lacks character and that personal touch.
