Our train from venice to Innsbruck was our longest train ride of the trip, 5 hours, but it definitely went by quickly staring at the alps for a good portion of it! Innsbruck is a really tiny town. Its a University town so it is actually pretty lively there. Our hotel was right in the middle of the strip and close to everything. For those of you who …
... the train station. Train 1 took us from Venice to Venora about 1hr. Train 2 took us from Venora (Italy) to Innsbruck (Austria) about 2 1/2 hrs. Arrived at beautiful hotel and Cameron is watching kids cartoons in German. It doesn't appear to matter that he can't understand what they are saying. We are having a quick rest before heading up the mountain on a ski lift. I'll tell you later what it was ...
Today is our last day in Austria. We have had a quiet day in Innsbruck with a tour this morning of the old city, followed by a trip up the cable car to the top of the mountains from the middle of the city. Unfortunately there was lots of cloud so our view was limited. The Church in Innsbruck was one of the most beautiful churches I have seen and we were fortunate that someone was playing the organ while we were there. It is the 5th oldest in the world ...

... halt and all for €20. One could spend ages just sitting drinking in the views, especially with the sun glinting off the golden domes of the monastery, so we had tea and did exactly that.
Our evening was punctuated by the sound of bells: the local cows wearing them round their necks sounded just like I imagined from those stories of Heidi I heard in my childhood, and also the monastery ones – shades of the Sound of ...

Such a wonderful place to stay. We arrived early and they let us check in. Hotel is very quaint and in the center of Innsbruck, great location! The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good! I will return to this hotel if we go back to Innsbruck!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Weisses Kreuz Innsbruck
We stayed here in April 2004 and would agree all the positive reviews, however opening the entrance door and walking down a "service" hallway to an elevator up to the reception area is a little different. We travel Europe by train so I can't comment on how or where a visitor would park a car. The big plus is that you are in the Altstatt (old city) car free zone and once you are there all the sights are within easy walking distance or 1 block to the Tram stops.
Third time we have stayed at the hotel and it is still great
We have stayed here in autumn 2002, spring 2003, and now summer of 2005 and we still love it. Great location right in the aldstat, wonderful breakfast buffet, great service from the staff, and great, spacious rooms with very clean bathrooms made our stays worth it. They have a family room that accomodates five very comfortably (on the fourth floor). When we return to Innsbruck we will again stay here.
Employee of the Year!
We stayed here with another couple and thought that no air wouldn't be a problem, but the rooms were warm. When I told Birgitte (the young woman working at the front desk) she immediately scurried away to produce two fans for our rooms. They were more than enough to keep us comfortable. Throughout our brief stay in the hotel, she proved over and over again that she deserves to be Employee of the Year. In our 2 1/2 weeks of traveling in Italy and Austria, she was the most impressive staff member that we dealt with. We would stay in the hotel because of Birgitte alone!
We stayed at this hotel from 6th to 9th June. The hotel is excellent for the price.
It is tastefully decorated in traditional style, the breakfast is the best buffet breakfast we have had in any hotel of this class and the staff are probably the friendliest and most helpful in any hotel in which we have ever stayed. (and that includes 5 star rated hotels!)
It is right in the centre of the old town with the sound of the various clock towers to waken you in the morning.
We would not hesitate to stay here again.......excellent.
We (family of 4) did not have a Motel reservation when we arrived in Innsbruck. We found a service at the train station that found us a place to stay near the station "Weisses Kreuz Hotel" (for a small fee).
Great budget choice
We stayed here on the way from Germany to Italy. The interior was charming, the staff was friendly, and the location was great. Pluses - it has maybe the best buffet breakfast we've ever had. Minuses - the rooms are cramped and noisy, especially the ones facing the street, and you can't park very near it.
We loved the Weisses Kreuz. Beautifully decorated, full of character and very friendly and accomodating staff. It's the perfect location for seeing Innsbruck, with tram stops very close by, and the train station within walking distance. We were lucky to be here when the weather was cool, as I can imagine the street noise might be a problem on hot nights when you have to have the windows open. I wonder why so many visitors find it necessary to shout in the middle of the night? Maybe the town need some "quiet ordinances" enforced in the pedestrian district after 10 pm?
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of June 2004. It is located on Herzog Friedrich Strasse right in the centre of the old town. My single room was on the fifth (top) floor overlooking Herzog Friedrich Strasse. The room was very small and incredibly hot, with no air conditioning or even a table fan. If one opened the window it was incredibly noisy -- I could here people talking in the street at one in the morning. The staff were very friendly.
Central but very noisy
The hotel is centrally located which is a plus when exploring by foot, but rest especially sleep is not guaranteed. If your room is facing the street and you are accommodated in the attic rooms be assured of a high volume of noise until 03:00am and a stuffy room as you cannot open the window since it dampens the noise slightly. A lovely breakfast will chear you up as well as the friendly staff.
Best location and best value!
I have stayed here twice and you will be hard pressed to get a better value for the money than staying at this 3-star hotel in the heart of the Old Town of Innsbruck. The rooms are small (probably not by European standards), but quaint and nicely decorated. The desk staff are very friendly and work hard to make your stay pleasant. The buffet breakfast would considered in between a continental breakfast and a full breakfast, and has plenty of good-tasting selections. I hope to stay here again and again.
