What a gem of a hotel.It has all one could wish for. The bedroom and bathroom are a nice size and well appointed.Breakfast is excellent.The central location is an advantage.A walk to the main concert halls are between 20 to 30 minutes. The concerts we saw were beyond our expectations.The 48 hr hop on hop off bus is good value.... More

Within walking distance of the beautiful historical section of Vienna. Shops, landmarks, museams, concert halls Galore, all within a brisk 15 minute walk (30 minute saunter...).

This hotel is ideal for a city break in Vienna.close to the city and public transport,and a wide choice of breakfast to suit all. The twin rooms are not the largest but still ample sized and I would certainly use this hotel again.

Convenient location with only a 15 minute walk to most attractions. Why pay top dollar in the international hotels that are everywhere in this beautiful city when you can stay in the Hotel City Central for a quarter of the price.

We stayed at the hotel for 4 days. Location is perfect, all historical buildings and monuments near by, 15 minutes walk. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Room was a bit small for family with 2 small kids and required re painting, but nothing major. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
