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

We made the unfortunate mistake of choosing this hotel thinking wien hbf is already opened, hence easier transportation, but it's not until Dec 2014. The location is good when the hbf is, but not now, you have to take underground to city centre. First of all, the owner was the most dodgy person I ever dealt with. One time, we... More

After reading some bad reviews on here I was worried about our 3 night bookin. Sure, it wasn't plush, but we didn't expect that for the price we paid. It was about a 20-30min walk into town, but there was also the station just a few mins away. Breakfast was plentiful (bread, cereal, eggs, meat, cheese etc). The staff were... More

I'm not particularly fussy when it comes to budget hotels and so for a hotel to receive such a poor review from me, things must be fairly bad. I was ignored by a receptionist who seemed to be more interested in his computer screen. I stood patiently at the desk, directly in front of him, no queue, without even an... More

I want to give a fair review of this place so I'll start with the good... Very cheap, decent room, good breakfast. The bad.... Very very poor service. I had prebooked the room via Expedia and therefore wasn't expecting to pay anything. The reception asked for payment as I checked out and assured me that I hadn't prepaid only prebooked.... More

This hotel is a great budget option in Vienna. It is just across the street from the main train station in the south of the city. I arrived at 11pm on a train from Prague and had no problem checking in at the 24hr reception. I had a single room which cost just €50. It is quite far south of... More

The breakfast options were great! Happy there. I had a single room, which was on a high floor. It was incredibly small. The furnishings were definitely old, and had seen better days. There was a refrigerator, but it didn't work. I was told none of them worked, and they didn't offer them - so why are they in the rooms... More

The hotel is located next to the main station (4 minutes walk to the metro or train), the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is very nice and breakfasts are amazlingly good. You also have wi-fi in the lobby and the breakfast room. We've spent there 3 days and can recommend it.
