“Excellent and quirky hotel”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

This hotel is very new and well designed, with lots of interesting art. I had a business single room which was bright, clean and well laid out, with a large bed and large bathroom (incl excellent shower), an anteroom, my own balcony with shading and chairs. Indoors I had a large desk which made it easy to work, and a couple of english language channels on the tv. I had a free apple every day, in addition to some thoughtful additions to the minibar (chewing gum, magazines (in german!) etc).
The pool and sauna was very well laid out and maintained, with thoughtful touches such as books in the indoor lounging area, and its own outdoor seating terrace. The adjacent gym was small but perfectly formed, although the crosstrainer needed a bit of maintenance.
The breakfast was excellent although not included in my particular room rate, so at 15 Euros only worth opting for if you are hungry!
The staff are very friendly and courteous. The location is within easy walking distance of the historic centre and close to the tram/bus hub at Jakomini Platz.
My only real problem was with the wifi - on a business trip wifi is especially important, so it was frustrating that I initially had to spend over an hour trying to get online, which I don't think was a fault with my computer - however after those teething problems my connection mainly worked okay, and quite quickly after that.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for business or leisure.

Dear Kaw104,
thank you very much for your time to give this feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed your time in the augartenhotel art & design and especially our "little extra thoughts" that we put in to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I am very sorry though, that the internet did not work immediately and that you had to spend a lot of time trying to get connected. I am happy to inform you, that we have been working on this and constantly add new routers to make sure, every room has a good connection. We would be happy to welcome you again in our hotel and as a little tip, if you mention at the booking that you would like to have an especially good internet connection then we will assign a room to you where we know for sure that the connection is excellent.
All the best from Graz and a happy new year!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. While my husband worked I walked to the City Center which was approx 20 min - not hard to find! Breakfast was incl in our rate and it was ok. The staff was very friendly and wifi good although we had issues w/ it at times not working. The bar was also ok but small. The hotel was a short 10 min taxi ride from the Graz Hauptbahnhof train station. The room was quite spacious w/ lots of room to move about. I would definitely return to this hotel.

HIghly recommend this hotel. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful - yet laid back atmosphere and proper king size beds with the softest feather pillows.

You are surrounded with wonderful modern art.

The breakfast is star quality with so much to choose from and all fresh that we didn't know where to start or end.

Little bit disappointed with the Augarten! We stayed there for two nights and felt that apart from the kooky modern art on the Walls, the place was a bit motel like and sterile! Staff were friendly enough overall! The Location was not the prettiest but it's only a 10 minute walk to the main square. The hotel just seemed to lack the pzazz I had expected from the pics on the website! Graz is lovely but next time we would stay either in the centre or by the river!

This is a new modern hotel about 10 min. walk to the center of Graz. The location is not very nice, there are many old and ugly buildings around the hotel, but this did not bother me. The hotel itself is nice. There is a small but good pool area with enough place to sit and daylight ( it is not in the basement !). They gave us an upgrade to a big appartement, but after the first night I had to move because it was above the restaurant and therefore VERY noisy. I was moved to second very nice and totally quiet room. The rooms are modern and comfortable, the beds have great comforters. I found many dark hairs in the bathroom , that was not so nice. The Magnolia restaurant is very good and I would recommend it. The breakfast room is very light and airy, nice to enjoy coffee in the morning. Choice of breakfast foods is very good.
