Stayed for one night on our way to visit Prague and Krakow. Good location, away from the busy central area. We had a private room which was spacious, very clean and comfortable beds. Very impressive for a budget hotel and a short walk to the Freud museum which was very interesting. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Did some research for us... More

This hotel offers very good value for money if you stay in the dorm room. The dorms are modern, clean and spacious. The only downside to this hotel is it's location as it is not located in the center and you have to walk for about 10 minutes to the next subway station.

The hotel was Grate, i stayed there in January 2016 with a group from my business and we visited the car fair. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and well equipped. Not so good was an very loud group of children and a long time to chek-in.

The hotel in located 2 train changes away from Vienna Hauptbahnhof followed by a 10 minutes walk. Since it includes a hostel as well as a hotel, its a fun, lively and fairly crowded place. The reception area is huge and has multiple activities to keep oneself busy. The staff at the front desk is extremely courteous and helpful. The... More

Good hostel. It is quite cheap, but the equipment is really nice and everything is clean. The quality is more hotel-like. The lobby is good for gathering and breakfast is quite ok as well. The location is good, 5 minutes from underground station and few stops from the city centre. There is penny market just next door, but apart from... More

Downtown Franz, is a very good option for those who are looking for a simple-clean-cheap room. Vienna is a pretty much expensive destination especially during Christmas period. This hotel provides high quality of services, in very good prices. It was only 5-8 minutes away from metro station and only 20' away (on foot) from Hofburg Palace and other points of... More

This hostel has everything you need: bed, bathroom, and wifi. Everything is clean too. The only complaint I have is that the staff as a whole were unfriendly and intimidating in a way also. They advertise food - so I ordered pasta with one of the girls that worked there - then a delivery guy showed up and I was... More

The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel reception also offer "Vienna Card". This hotel is in a quiet location. The rooms on the seventh floor are probably the quietest. Television programs are mainly Austrian, a few French and even Russian. No Czech, Slovak or Hungarian. Breakfast is standard and fresh. Hotel is close to the city center. The... More

This hotel is a 15 minute Metro journey from the city centre, but it is situated in a lovely quiet area near the Danube Canal. Lots of restaurants and parks close by. Easy to get around by Metro and some lovely canal walks too.

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.
