Romantik Hotel Post
Ranked #5 of 19 Hotels in Villach
Reviewed 12 September 2017

It was our first holiday in beautiful Austria, so we hoped the historic Romantik Hotel Post lived up to the images shown on the website, and to our delight it did. The hotel was nestled amongst quaint and modern shops, cafe's and bars on the pedestrianised Hauptplatz in lovely Villach. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and most spoke a little English, some better than others which was a relief. The hotel interior was quite plush but traditional, it felt a little regal in some areas and the cloistered ceilings are amazing. Our room was comfortable, spacious and clean, and we slept well in a large comfortable bed, even through the sound of other guests chattering in the outdoor terrace below. The en-suite bathroom was very clean and had everything we needed, including nice white fluffy towels which were replaced each day if required. Our trip took place in June and the weather was hot, and so was our room, unfortunately there was no air conditioning only a pedestal fan, which helped a little if it was pointing directly at you, besides that we had no other problem at the hotel. We enjoyed the buffett breakfast which included a good choice of traditional Austrian breads, cheese, meat, fish, fruits, cereals, boiled eggs, hot and cold drinks and many other delicious foods to try. We had our evening meal in the hotels lovely restaurant most nights, with the choice of eating inside or out on the lovely warm evenings. The traditional Austrian food served in the restaurant was delicious and reasonably priced. We would definately stay in the Romantik Hotel Post again on our next trip to Villach, and will recommend it to family and friends.

Air conditioning? Nope. Comfortable pillows (make that pillow)? Ha! Shower? Not a chance. Creaky floors? You bet. Eggs, bacon, toast, etc. for breakfast? Nada. I couldn't even find someone to bring coffee. The highlights are a big room and mini bar with beer, wine, soda, water and limited snacks. The little balcony area was also nice.

If you like old, this is your place. Otherwise, I would avoid. Door keys from the 19th Century aren't my thing. I am more into the modern comforts of a hotel stay.

Hotel Post Romantik
quaint hotel in town where you can walk the cobblestone streets and enjoy restaurants, sites and shopping only steps away!
Only downside is there is no A/C (a small floor fan is provided) and the sheets were all "pilled" that felt like sleeping on sandpaper! They definitely need to invest in new sheets! The wifi goes in and out! There is a small 19" Flatscreen TV but only one American channel, 2 small chairs and a table! There is no iron or kettle for tea or coffee or mini fridge! The bathroom facilities were adequate and spacious with excellent hot water pressure! The breakfast included soft boiled eggs, various cheeses, cold cuts, pastries, homemade jams, etc.

Nice hotel right in the centre of Villach located on the main pedestrian shopping street. The rooms were spacious and clean and well appointed. Receptionist was pleasant. Breakfast was a buffet style with plenty of variety. One thing that was a little odd was that I wanted to get a couple of glasses of wine to take back up to our room when we got back from dinner at around 10pm. Both bars in the hotel were shut so I had to go to the terraced restaurant adjacent to the car park and then carry them up precariously to the room. The hotel has a free car park at the rear which has room for around 20 cars. Access is via various pedestrianized streets which were quiet when we were driving on them at around 18.00 on a Saturday afternoon. Look out for the signs showing the route to the hotel. The route from Draulande (street by the river) is up Wildmanngasse, left onto Leitegasse and finally right onto Paracelsusgasse, from which you access the car park through a gated archway.

The location is superb, right in the middle of the city next to the main cathedral.

The staff here were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful.

I booked a triple room and was upgraded to a two bedroom apartment with kitchenette. It was huge. The king bed was actually two twin beds pushed together as is typical in Europe.

The WIFI in the room was essentially inoperative. I managed to connect for a few brief moments only.

There was a fan but no air conditioning. Leaving windows open brings cool air but invites street and church bell noise from the excellent but busy location.

Breakfast was generous although well ravaged by the time we arrived at 10am.
