We stayed for two nights the breakfast for €8 was good. Wrapping a bread roll each for lunch was a bonus. The soup available at the bar was spicy but just what I needed after a tiring day. The room was clean and adequate. I just wish the room had a fridge. My only problem was that they insisted on... More

Dear Margaret, thank your very much for your feedback. Unfortunately it seems that there was a misunderstanding. Of course you can pay the room and breakfast with credit card, we only prefer cash. Buffet breakfast means that you can eat how much you like, but we are sorry it is not allowed to take a lunch packet with you. Beste... More

One front of house staff member was brusque which was offensive at first but learned to find it charming. The room was small but comfortable and very cheap, Bathrooms were also v. clean and room cleaned daily. The hotel is easy walking to the city centre but also right next to the underground station and a stand where you can... More

Not close from most monuments and places to visit, but close to transports. Warm and friendly staff, and good service! The buffet breakfast was enough, and they had a wide variety of information leaflets in the reception.

This is good place to stay. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is on a quiet street, close to Taborstrasse tube and Praterstern railway station (direct route to VIE airport). City center is within walking distance. The staff in reception was very friendly. One slight issue is that there is no shower gel/shampoo in the bathroom.

It was hard to find smth cheap during winter holidays, and likely enough we found this hotel. Hotel Franzenshof is pretty close to the ferries wheel (15 min walking) and 30 minutes from the center (we really enjoyed the walk, you will see pretty much all your sights in those 30 min). also located right next to the U2 metro...

I stayed here one night and found the hotel to be nice and clean. The location is quite good with a quick five minute walk to the station with three stops right into the city. If you are doing a quick stay then this is perfect.

Hi, There is no connection between the photos on the webiste/booking.com and what you are really offered. We had the smallest room ever (not even 8m2), no garbage bin, no soap/shampoo/shower gel. Only a very small room and a very rude and sarcastic receptionist. For 70 eur/night it was really dissponting. Thank God we didn't stay there for more than... More

Excellent stay. This is very good value place to stay - one of the cheaper places to stay in vienna. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel is on a quiet street. It is about 50 m from the Taborstrasse tube and it takes about 5-10 minutes to get to the city center. I would stay again. One... More
