Centrally located in the heart of Old Town Innsbruck, this hotel is within walking distance to several museums. Skiing and hiking opportunities are only a short train ride away along with a visit to Swarovski Crystal World. Built in 1390, this historic hotel is one of the oldest in Europe. Pets are welcome to stay as well. The comfortable and modern guestrooms feature double beds, air conditioning, a wet bar, coffee maker, flat screen television and an in-room safe. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is available in the guestrooms so there is no need to worry about staying connected to home, work or school while traveling. Families can start the morning with the free, full breakfast buffet.

So we had no reservation to the night we showed up and Best Western Goldener Adler were completely full, no rooms available. However Best Western Goldener Adler was so kind and helpful Maria at reception at Best Western Goldener Adler went out of her way to find us alternate housing that was perfect. She extended exemplary and extraordinary kindness and effort from the moment we walked into the lobby, on the wrong day! With the ultimate support of management she as even able to secure for us a gracious full refund for the room we booked for the wrong night. I look forward to staying at Best Western Goldener Adler when we return to the fare city of Innsbruck.
This was our second stay in the Goldener Adler and again we loved it. If you love historic buildings in the old town (we do), than this is the place to stay. Rooms are nice and clean, staff - especially the front desk staff - is friendly and helpful. Most sightseeing points are within easy walking distance.
Since parking has been discussed in earlier reviews: The hotel is in a pedestrian zone, but I believe you can drive into the zone for unloading and loading your luggage (please check with the hotel again). Then you park the car in one of two garages, the Altstadt Garage (about 200 meters away) or the Market Garage (about 400 meters). For both garages, you get special rates as a hotel guest (the front desk will validate your parking ticket). We found this easy to do.
