We booked this hotel at the last minute, because we wanted to be near the Museumquartier, where we wanted to check some exhibitions. Although the pictures looked a bit nicer than reality, this is a nice hotel. Rooms and bathroom were clean enough and nicely furbished (although the carpet in the living room may be replaced - maybe it is... More

Hotel am Brillantengrund is a comfortable accommodation in a quiet side street with easy access to central Vienna and the West Bahnhof. Andrea, who tends the front desk, is an exceptional receptionist - friendly and helpful., even to the point of searching in her purse for cold medication for us. The rooms are on the small side, but ours sported... More

We chose this hotel based on other reviews and even if it wasn't a bad experience, there were several things that disappointed us. On the good side, the location is very good and the building is really charming, specially the inner patio. The breakfast also is pretty good yet if you dare to ask for anything to the personnel (like... More

I chose this hotel mainly because of its location in the 7th district of Vienna, which is one of my favorite districts in the city. Having lived just around the corner from the hotel in Westbahnstrasse for many years in the 90's I wanted to experience the intimacy of a small hotel in a familiar neighborhood. My brother who lives... More

Living in Budapest, we just went to Vienna for an overnighter to meet up with a friend who was ending her river cruise there. It was only by chance and luck that I found this hotel. The location is excellent. It is close enough to the West train station, making it an easy walk. The room was spotlessly cleaned and... More

The breakfast experience is one of my favourites so far, the art and attention to detail gave a wonderful experience. It has been designed with heart and flair. Stay here, the style of rooms is quite retro, I had a really great sleep and the hotel lobby is so trendy everyone just chills out after breakfast.

This is a nice little hotel at a good location. Nice, clean rooms with a small kitchenette. A prior reviewer complained about sheer curtains - wrong: the windows have the typical German built in shades which can totally darken the room. Cute courtyard with an attached funky little bar (where you can get ice cubes) and a plain small restaurant... More

We stayed 5 nights, in a suite with kitchenette on the first floor facing the courtyard. Room was clean, beds were comfortable. We walked to the hotel from the Westbahnhof train station (it's less than 20 min walk). The hotel is walking distance to the old city (museumplatz, St Michaels, St Stephens, etc). And less than 10 min walk to... More

Two blocks with a courtyard between a bit like tenement flats - i.e. at each of 3 levels an open walkway overlooking the courtyard with rooms coming off. The rooms are simple, but roomy with kitchenette (my fridge wasn't working) and a small but perfectly fine bathroom. Bar with drinks in the courtyard, and a great 'cafeteria' serving Phillipino food... More

Location is great for restaurants/bars and within walking distance of city centre, with good transport connections to all major sites. Room /bathroom were clean, fresh public areas were lovely, particularly the internal courtyard. Breakfast was great value, continental buffet style with additional scrambled/fried eggs and bacon . There was also a really interesting room service/restaurant menu featuring Philippine cuisine, and... More
