BoutiqueHotel Dom – Rooms & Suites was a wonderful hotel placed in the Altstadt and made all the sights of Graz easily accessible. As we were there during the Christmas Market time, we were within walking distance of many stalls and gluhwein!
The hotel itself was clean, efficient with well proportioned, quiet rooms. Breakfast was a wide range of cold cuts, different breads, coffees and fruit juices. We had breakfast meetings and the breakfast cost was 10 euro which was good value for what was available.
I would highly recommend the hotel and would be very happy to return there.
The hotel is very convenient to the city centre and is only a few minutes walk away from the main streets. We had a superior room which was at the back and overlooked a courtyard so it was fairly quiet.
The one thing that surprised me considering the standard of room was that there were no bathrobes. There are a number of small steps along the corridors so it is not really wheelchair friendly.
The rooms are very nice and spacious with all the amenities necessary. Personnel at reception and restaurant are very helpful and smiling often. The bed is very comfortable and breakfast is great with a lot of things to choose from. Wifi works well.
Be aware that if you arrive after 23:00 you need to make a call to another hotel to receive the key for getting inside and in your room. Walking distance from everything in the city centre.
The hotel is full of artistic touches and our room was large, bright and beautiful. The wall behind the bed was painted with a vibrant jungle scene and the desk was a masterpiece of woodwork and glass. Staff were wonderful. We really didn’t want to leave.
