We stayed during a brief summer visit to Vienna. This is a very spartan accommodation -- in a city of such great culture it seemed weird that there wasn't a single piece of art on the walls. Usually we take hotel art for granted, but if it is missing and all you have is a barren white wall, then you... More

Nothing special about this pension. It is a guest house rather than a hotel. The staff is helpful and the pension is well managed and clean, even if the premices are a little quaint. Breakfast just ok, but enough to start the day and make it to a nice Café. On Saturday night one could here the echo of a... More

We stayed at the Pension Schottentor between Christmas and New Year's. We were traveling as a family of 6. The hotel is conveniently located near the Schottentor metro stop. The hotel staff were very friendly. They allowed to leave our luggage (since we had arrived early by overnight train) and then moved our luggage into the room for us before... More

I stayed in Pension Schottentor over Easter holidays, and I cannot really relate to all the complaints written in here. We arrived at about 11 am and got our rooms immediately. The rooms were clean, including the bathroom. Beds, pillows and blankets were good. There was some noise from the corridor if someone passed by but that is the case... More

Basic accommodation, pensions WiFi works fine. Room was old, but clean. Breakfast is thin, if you are used to buffe breakfasta. Btw Vienna has many opportunities to get breakfast in... More

They always told us "sorry it will be ready in 30 minutes" :) Location is OK, breakfast is OK (cakes are nice) Rooms are DIRTY, old and... More

We stayed in this hotel while attending a conference of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine from Friday October 8th to Thursday October 14th 2010. The place was full of cigarette smell. All bills were settle at the time using our credit card. The worst experience and a shock for us was that the hotel illegally charged our credit without... More

Stay hear for the location and price, not the place itself. It functions as a place to sleep and eat that is within walking distance of streetcar or subway hubs. It is in an old building, and a lot; from the rooms to the bath could use a major remodel (even leveling the floors from one side of the room... More

I had to cancel my trip last minute due to serious illness. While the reservation contract with Pension Schottentor said that I was entitled to a refund minus one night in case of cancellation, they never made the refund. For two months, I called and emailed. They keep saying we'll do it but never do.
