Two summers ago, top-to-bottom renovations transformed this Best Western affiliate into an urbane inner-city establishment appealing to experienced, cost-conscious travelers. Advantages include a location in the heart of Wels, choice of 82 utilitarian-but-comfortable guestrooms, plus sauna and free Internet connectivity. There’s no restaurant onsite, but the breakfast room exudes a cheerful ambiance, with 10 kinds of fresh fruit provided each morning.
