This hotel comes at a reasonable price, is very well situated being close to the old town, and to the Airport Bus stop, and metro stations. The rooms were spacious and clean, the breakfast nicely done, and the reception staff were friendly and accommodation, and seemed very keen to make our brief stay enjoyable.

A nice little hotel. Staff were amazingly friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast. Rooms were big and beds very comfortable. The best thing was the location. Opposite Shwedenplatz metro and round the corner from St Stephens, Mozart Haus and the opera. You could walk everywhere! Great links to airport too. Only negative was the tired decor although they...

We book this hotel for a business trip because it was relatively cheap in comparison to other hotels. It's right out of the Schwedenplatz metro station. Right now there are some renovation works on the outside of the hotel. The staff is really nice, helpful and gentle. The hotel is quite worn out, but the room was quite big and... More

When we saw the hotel from outside (and in fact also the elevator to get into our room), we felt disappointed about our choise: it did not looked "classy" and the lift was worn out. The room, however, was nice, comfortable and tidy. And so was the breakfast room very nice in deed: not only the was the interior nice,... More

The location is very near Schwedenplatz metro entrance and many good restaurants and shops. My room was large with a balcony and had a spacious walk-in shower. All the staff were very friendly and breakfast is served from 6:30 to 11:00.

Check-in was easy, staff was lovely, helpful with attractions, provided city events brochure and maps, apologized for the two very rainy days. We stayed 3 nights and this was a great location to everything. Super breakfast selection with meats, cheeses, breads and lots of muesli options and toppings, all included with room. Room was small but lovely and looked out... More

We only stayed at the hotel for one night but when I return to Vienna we'll definitely check the availability of this hotel. The location at Schwedenplatz is perfect for a city weekend. You have all the sights and shops within a few minutes walk. Also should you need to take the subway (U-bahn) it's right outside the hotel. Also... More

The hotel is in the heart of Vienna..only minutes away from the St. Stefan's Cathedral and next to u-bahn. Friendly staff especially the receptionists who went out of the their ways many times. We would return back.
