I don't understand why this hotel takes 4*? It's typical, old 3* hotel. Rooms dimensions, quality, condition and everything is on 3* level. Rooms wasn't shabby but all hotel excluding Reception is middling, forgettable, lackluster. Absolutely nothing special. Building and interior from '70. Fresh and hard mattress was only new part of the room equipment. Bedlinen was fresh, towels the... More

Just had a few nights in one of the not-renovated rooms. Shabby best describes the room. The bed and mattress were ok. However, the carpeting, lighting and especially the bathroom were definitely not of 4* standard. Location is ok - about 10min brisk walk to the Schottentor and another brisk 10min to the Hofburg. Breakfast was fine with a good... More

There is very little good to say about this hotel. I was given a smokers room although I had clearly stated that I want a non smoker room. When I complained the unfriendly staff said that they have no other room left. They hadn't even considered notifying me in advance. I didn't want to look for a new hotel since... More

This hotel is substandard in almost every way. Our bed was terrible and it felt as if one was sleeping directly on the bedsprings with no padding whatsoever. Walls were stained and dinged. Decor was budget college dorm. Location very inconvenient as well. Management was particularly unfriendly and unhelpful. Breakfast was good.

We stayed at this hotel during a business trip where it came recommended as a 4 star hotel. Pros: The staff was friendly and very helpful. There were a lot of choices at breakfast. Location is good. Pretty close to the tram and not too far from downtown. Quiet neighbourhood. Free WiFi. Cons: The walls in the hallways were dirty.... More

The hotel is conveniently located: same street as Physics buildings, 5' walk to vegetarian restaurant "Vegirant" and 15' walk to another vegetarian restaurant "Yamm!". Staff are helpful. Room is basic but clean although the microscopic size of the shower is not comfortable. Vienna temperature was mid-30s (sweltering) and no air conditioning in room so I couldn't sleep properly even with... More

During my 3 day stay there in June, 2013, I enjoyed very much their friendly service, rich variety of their breakfast buffee, my comfortable bed and free internet in my room. The location is superb – walking distance from the old town of Vienna, and very interesting Sigmund Freud Appartment Museum around the corner.

More like a 3 rather than a 4 star hotel, as it needs renovation. Ok overall, room is generally spacious and clean and breakfast is good. Main reason I chose it was because of the free fast internet in all rooms. Hotel is near the university in a quiet and safe area. There are not however many facilities in the... More

walls here are paper thin. I was kept up all night be the residents in the next room and the front desk staff were not sympathetic and unable/unwilling to move me to another room. Beds are uncomfortable and the deco very outdated. Much too expensive for what it is.

Been coming here for a few years. Stayed one night recently in a refurbed twin room (109) paying €90 r/o, room had lovely modern massive square shower but very little water pressure and luke warm water, sadly. Didn't have breakfast as I was leaving too early for a flight and it wasn't possible to do anything before 7am. I was... More
