I'm absolutely serious - it was one of the most comfortable and charming hotels I've ever stayed in. It is situated in the unique district, where live many Jews. The underground is not far away from the hotel - only 5 minutes on foot. You can go to the bakery nearby to buy a local delicacy - Sachertorte! Hotel is... More

Stayed with my sister and my cousin during our 3 day trip to Vienna. The room is small but well designed. There was enough space for our luggage, coats and personal stuff. The room and bathroom were clean. Shower has a glass door, much better than the plastic curtain. Location is ~10 minute walk from Metro and from there about... More

Great hostel in good location, just 5mins away from the subway, clean and very spacious (except for the kitchen). Breakfast is not included but you can buy it for 5,90 euro. The wifi could work better. It's a good value, I definitely recommend it.

I definetely recommend it to everybody as this hotel belongs to a cheap prise category and in spite of it has a great quality. Our room was almost perfectly clean, the bed linens had a great scent and it was a pleasure to recharge ourselves inside of them. Staff were polite with us and the receptionists had great communication skills.

This is basically a modern Hostel. Prices are very good for Vienna and the atmosphere is good and friendly. Staff is friendly but usually overworked to be of actual help. Good fast wifi signal in all areas. Breakfast is nice too and not too expensive considering what you ll pay if you opt to eat in the city. However location... More

Couldn't find flaws in this hotel, except for the bad wifi in the room. The room I stayed was tidy and clean, nothing to complain about those things. In comparison with the other hotels I stayed it was a bit expensive, but it is a good choice for short stays.

Checked in on 21st December for a 3nights stay, with a dear old friend and travel companion with whom I have literally travelled the globe. If it wasn't the blood stained mattress, or the dirt stained bottom sheet, or the curtains that definitely hadn't seen water or soap for eons, or the windows stained with horribly looking dirt streaks, or...

This was our second stay at a Meininger hotel. We had a good experience at Meininger Berlin Mitte and were not disappointed in Vienna. Friendly check in, and a nice hotel. Very clean and nice tidy room. There is a tram stop one street over, but we mostly opted to walk to the nearest U-Bahn about 10 minutes away (just... More
