The Goldener Adler (Golden Eagle) is the most famous hotel in Innsbruck.
It is in the heart of the old town just 50 yards or so from the iconic golden roof.
The Hotel is central to all the tourist's needs, from the TIC, churches, parks, the palace, the Swarovski exhibition and just five minutes walk from the river and central bus stops.
It is a ten minute walk from the main railway station.
The unmissable trip up the nearby mountain via the Nordketten cable car is also just a few minutes walk away.
Inscribed marble slabs on the wall outside the hotel's main door list many famous visitors including Kings and Queens, (Queen Sonia of Norway once slept in our room), Mozart and other luminaries from around the world.
And now, me.
It has been in business since 1390 and is now a family run Best Western Hotel.
The bedrooms are modern internally, having flat-screen tvs., air conditioning and free wi-fi.
The restaurant is beautiful and understated, serving typically Austrian cuisine.
The hotel also provides a street cafe and restaurant right outside the front doors, and this is popular throughout the day and in the evening. There can be some noise from the street at night, as it has several other street cafes nearby, so ask for a quiet room.
You will not get a view of the street, but at least you will not have to lie awake listening to it's more exhuberant users.
The breakfast is buffet style and with little concession to English tastes, so if you are seeking the Full English, you will be disapppointed. It does have a fine selection of fresh continental foodstuffs in abundance, so you will not go hungry.
The staff are very friendly and English speaking.
This is not the cheapest of hotels, but it does have a certain cache and ambience which is hard to match.
Maybe your name will be next on the marble slabs!
