We stayed for 2 nights and were charmed by this unique place. Don't expect luxury but the atmosphere is so cerene and peaceful and happy, and you are staying in an old monastery. We enjoyed a lot. The interned didn't work in the room so we sit outside the room in the sitting area, but that was known before we... More

The Benediktushaus is not for anyone who can't live without WIFI or TV, if these things don't worry you then give this place a try. My room had WifI some times, it was all very hit and miss but added to the experience. The room I had was large, simple in a pleasant way, everything was clean and well maintained.... More

You feel really special slipping through the almost hidden door of the Benediktushaus. The rooms are comfortable and staff very helpful and friendly. You can access all of the ringstrasse from here as your home base. An amazing value for the location. The quiet atmosphere is refreshing after being out and about with the crowds.

Although a fairly simple hotel, everything was able to meet our needs. We had a triple room on the third floor which was quiet and able to get wifi access, no air-con but we were fine with just the fan and the lovely massive window overlooking a courtyard. The breakfast was good, a large variety for a continental breakfast. The... More

This place is just what we expected: clean, minimalist, centrally located, and quiet. Three of us stayed in an upper room that was quite comfortable. When we were there in July 2014, there was a heat wave and we were fine with a fan. The third bed was just as good as the others, much better than the usual "not... More

Spent a week here. Small, quiet yet in the center of the bustling old city. Great buffet breakfast. Friendly staff were always there to help us find our way. The location is near many wonderful things. Lots of restaurants, shops and the Ring nearby.

This was somewhat of a cross between a hostel and a hotel. We went in December for the Christmas markets and lo and behold there is a market right outside the church as well as 5 more within 5 minutes in various directions. The room accommodations are very basic and worn but clean. It is a good sized room with... More

Excellent location... Christmas market right outside and most attractions are walking distance. The guest house is well kept, clean & quiet. The breakfast is decent. Wifi is good. There is a bar called Freyung across the street. That's really nice, good music & good food.

We went for the Christmas markets and we were not disappointed. There is a market right outside the monetary as well as up the road. The main Christmas market is only 5 mins walk at the Rauthaus. The accommodation is superiority furnished. A good size, there is a nice bathroom and good sized bedroom. The bed was a conjoined double... More

While the B-house isn't fancy, it is clean, quiet, affordable and within blocks of all the wonderful Vienna sights. It was also the best breakfast and coffee we had during our Europe adventure. I highly recommend it and would absolutely stay there again.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
