There are positives about this hotel. It is near to the main railway station which is an exceptional transportation hub. The hotel is old and some would see that as a positive also. Now for the absurd. Two days after check out the hotel claims that I damaged their property and requested I provide them with a credit or debit... More

We booked a double room, but were offered a single room. The manager was very unfriendly and tried to blame the problem on the booking agency. we wanted to leave our luggage ( 2 small back packs) but he refused to hold them as he said had no space!! we returned 2 hours later and asked if he had sorted...

I'm disappointed in myself for making my New Year's Eve plans at the last minute, which meant settling for this bare bones hotel because it still had vacancies. It's shameful that they can jack up rates threefold just because it's a holiday, in exchange for abismal quality of facilities. Even worse that I gave in. For 250€ (a two night... More

Hotel Congress was very close to the new main train station and 5 minutes walking to metro. . They don´t charge too much for breakfast but there are lots of cafee and bars to go in the new main station, plus a commercial center. Basic but clean rooms, affordable stay and helpful staff. Noisy because it is in the main... More

The hotel isn't in great shape and the room was tiny. We barely had space to open our suitcases. The tv is very old but the white bedding was clean (very important). But the receptionist was very helpful and it's very easy to get to trains/ subway/ busses.

Hotel Congress was very close to the train station and a good walk to downtown Vienna. They charge too much for breakfast but they do have the market cornered in that department because there isn't really anywhere around to buy breakfast in the morning. Clean rooms, affordable stay and helpful staff.

Fine hotel for what it is - well located near the train station, basic room and bathroom, but a bit more expensive than I would have liked (but that's Vienna for you). Staff were friendly, and stored my bag for me on the last day.

The hotel itself is average, rooms are OK and location is not too bad, but I have a big complaint about breakfast. I travelled with a travel agency, so it was an organised group with a travel guide and everything. Apparently, we paid continental breakfast, but nobody told us that. When we came to the restaurant, everything was served together... More

OK if you plan to be out and about and don't wish to pay the prices to be right in the very centre. Transport is a bonus, main station opposite will be fully open in a couple of months and Ubahn is a three minute walk to the entrance. You can also walk into the centre, 20 mins or so.... More
