4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our experience with Meininger was off to a bumpy start, we struggled to find the place when we first arrived. We'd taken the U-Bahn to the nearest station (as advised by google maps), which as it turns out was not very near to the hotel at all. Afterwards we proceeded to poorly navigate our way for a good hour before... More

This is the second time we have stayed with Meininger (last time was in Hamburg) and won't be the last when we visit Austria or Germany again. First of all the service at reception was brilliant (Hannah gave us excellent information on the city and reasonable priced restuarants in the local area; review of the one to come) all staff...

Had a great stay, I slept in the 6 bedded dorm with six of my friends and the room was perfectly equipped. Also a nice plus is the guest kitchen where you can cook your own food! Good price for the quality you get! The staff is also really friendly, I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Really good cheap hostel near the old town. Cheap, clean and friendly. The 31 tram gets the laziest to a main underground. Buy a 24 hour ticket or similar and hop on and off all the public transport to get you where you want to go. Start your day with the basic but good breakfast at hotel and then you're... More

Very friendly staff - could leave luggage. We were there for 2 days to do a whirlwind tour of Vienna & wanted something in walking distance of the old city. Website has directions from train station but it was confusing as we exited the metro ( go up the stairs & straight along the avenue beside the river - there... More

My friend and I booked into a four bed shared room. The room was quite small for the number of beds in it - it had a two singles pushed together and a bunk bed when really it was the size of a double. The two singles were essentially a double bed, so either nab a bunk or travel with... More

Stayed in Meininger Hotel - Wien, Vienna for 2 days. Value for money. Staff was helpful. Clean linens and towels everyday. Hearty breakfast. Near to city center. If we ever go back to Vienna, will definitely choose Meininger. We had the double bed. From our window adjacent is the street but it turned out to be quiet at night. Had... More

I was traveling with my wife and 3 kids via Vienna and needed a place to stay for 2 nights. Meininger was one of the few that offered a room big enough for all of us. They were not expensive either and not too far from the city center. Initially I booked for one night, then I changed my mind... More

It is a perfect budget Hotel situated in central Vienna (15 min walk to the pedestrian zone), not far from a Metro station (5min walk), in a quiet and safe area, with very clean rooms, correct breakfast, and with parking possibilities. Good WiFi. Excellent value/money rate for Vienna. It is the 5th time that we are staying there for 1-3... More
