The location is great, only 5 minutes away from Schwedenplatz. I had a standard room with a single bed. The room was always clean, comfortable and the price was good for the value. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, with lots of options and was included in room rate. The staff was amazing, very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend... More

We arrived in the hotel foyer and were greeted by the man on reception who was really helpful and friendly. The reception area is really light and airy and our rooms were perfect however I asked if it was possible to have a lighter room as ours was a bit gloomy. We were given a room with a street view...

When we go away we look to stay at a Hotel that strikes a balance between location, quality and price (doesn't everyone, but it doesn't always work out haha), I would say that this Hotel definately achieves this. Arriving at the train station from Prague we jumped into a taxi and it cost 17 euro which equated to a 20... More

Yes, I agree with the other reviews about the breakfast, it is very nice, a good example of Central European breakfasts. Don't miss going to the Carmelitten Market. Bring walking shoes, Vienna is a great town for long walks with lots to see.

Oh My. The best breakfast in my life. Who the hell comes on a hotel's page and writes about breakfast? This girl. I am the world's most critical person- not something that I am happy with but oh well. I will judge anything and everything and find some fault. This breakfast was perfect. The assortment of cheeses, breads, fruits, eggs,... More

I stayed here 2 nights and it was useful for both the u-bahn and for the boat that departs for bratislava. The staff were always very helpful and provided a lot of information upon arrival. I stayed in a corner room (non smoking floor) but I'm sure I could smell cigarettes throughout the entire hotel. The decor was very dated... More
