Where can I find the hotel “Das Weitzer” and how do I get there?
Our address is Grieskai 12-14, 8020 Graz. For exact directions, please use Google Maps. It’s definitely quicker and clearer than explaining the route using all four points of the compass.
Where's the hotel car park, how much does parking cost and can I reserve a parking space?
You can find Citygarage Weitzer right next to our hotel – just drive down Grieskai another 30 metres and at the blue “City Garage Weitzer” sign on your right side drive down the underground parking entrance. You’re welcome to drop off your luggage in front of the hotel first, and then we’ll show you the way ourselves. Please take a parking ticket at the car park entrance*.
You’ll receive an exit ticket at reception. The regular 24-hour ticket costs € 31.50. For discount ticket (€ 18.-) please check our direct booking advantages! For detailed information go to “service”.
Unfortunately, we can’t offer reservations, but they’re not really necessary. After all, it’s a public car park and there’s always enough space.
*Maximum height of the entrance 2.10 m – entrance not permitted with gas-powered vehicles or trailers.
Dou you also have charging stations for e-vehicles?
Yes, there are 5 parking spaces with charging stations for electric vehicles available in the Citygarage Weitzer. These can be used on request and subject to availability and charging costs € 0.075 per minute.
Do you also offer valet parking?
You know your car best, that’s why we’d rather you took responsibility for it. In addition, our car park is almost a must-see in itself, with its own art installation at the entrance. You’ll only find something like that at the hotel “Das Weitzer”.
How do I get to the hotel using public transport from the train station or the airport?
Tramlines 1, 4, 6 and 7 stop at the train station. All four bring you to us by the same route. Get off the tram at Südtirolerplatz/Kunsthaus, and from there, it’s just a few steps.

How does the telephone in the room work?
:: Reception: Dial 100 for anything you need.
:: From room to room: For room numbers below 100 dial 7 plus the double-digit room number (e.g. room number 08=708, 73=773, etc.). For room numbers above 100 just dial the room number.

Do you offer a laundry and ironing service?
That goes without saying! Our external partner is very happy to be of service Monday to Friday. Just notify reception and that’s all there is to it.
You have a clean laundry, but not ironed? Not a problem! We can bring an iron incl. ironing board to your room – free of charge of course.
Does the hotel have a fitness studio?
You’ll find our newly renovated gym with its unique rooftop sauna on the fifth floor. You can use the treadmill, etc. all day long, to get into shape. Or just break a sweat.

Where can I rent bikes?
Fast as the wind through Graz for only € 10,- per day for a pushbike or € 35,- per day for an E-Vespa. Would you like to go north or south? The bike trail along the river Mur is directly at your doorstep. A bike or Vespa helmet is of course a complimentary must we provide you with.

Smokers are welcome, of course! But smoking itself is restricted. We request that you don’t smoke in the hotel, the restaurant or in your room.
Where can I get a toothbrush at night?
Some things stayed at home? Not a problem! Toiletries can be purchased at the reception desk at any time.
Is there something in the room I have to pay attention to?
Yes, the fire alarm detector in your room:
:: Cigarette, E-Cigarette & Co: Fire alarms are strict non-smokers. So are our rooms. For smoking in your room we charge an extra cleaning fee of € 70,00 and € 500,00 if a fire alarm sets off.
:: Steam in the bath: It is no problem, if it’s getting hot in your room. But please be careful with too much hot steam from the shower – with the bathroom door wide open – due to the fire detectors. Otherwise it is possible that some firemen are going to join you. The price of € 500,00 could be spent better.
Is it possible to make a reservation without a credit card?
In principle, yes. However, we reserve the right to cancel bookings without a credit card guarantee from 6 p.m. onwards the day before arrival. To keep your room please contact our reservations department under +43 (0) 316 703 – 400 or send an email to email@example.com We generally require a credit card on busy days, such as New Year’s Eve.

If you’ve booked our daily rate, you can cancel up to 6 pm on the day before you’re due to arrive. For special dates (public holidays, congresses, events) the cancellation policy can be different. But we recommend that you just check your booking confirmation, where you’ll find the regulations for cancelling your booking.
When can I check in? And when must I vacate my room?
You can check into your room from 2 pm. And it’s yours till 11 am on the day of your departure. If you’d like the room a bit earlier or for a bit longer, simply ask reception whether it’s available. For those who want to sleep longer or just don’t want to leave, we have our Late Check-out until 2 pm or 4 pm for € 20,- or € 30,-. Or you could stay another night – just an idea.

You can enjoy our heavenly breakfast buffet in – nomen est omen – the Engelreich from 6.30 am to 10 am every day, and even till 11 am on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. If your alarm clock doesn’t go off – to put it that way – it’s not the end of the world: You’re welcome to have breakfast à la carte in our coffeehouse. Till 12 pm! You’ll manage that then, won’t you?
