Hotel is two metro station away from the opera and three from the cathedral. Parking is not for free (some sites said it is free). You must pay a... More

Spent 4 night here,paid 158Euro breakfast included. Room for one is small with the window almost impossible to open because it's blocked by the head board of the bed, there's a tinny and old TV with Austrian channels and CNN , there's also a mini fridge, the room has no ventilation because you can't even open the window. Bathroom is... More

Our family stayed here for 1 night as part of a tour group. This hotel is a good base for exploring Vienna because of it's close proximity to the train station. Bring a map just in case you cannot find your way back to this hotel or better yet download the tripadvisor map, it helped us a lot too especially... More

My travel purpose was as a transient for a short night in Vienna. It has been a long ride for almost 14 hours to Vienna and i was just thinking of a good rest in a fair hotel. First of all, there were prostitutes staying in the front of the hotel waiting to be picked up by the guests. One... More

I was travelling solo around Europe and stayed at Congress Hotel in Vienna on August 27 and 28. I found the front desk gentlemen very nice and helpful. The room was reasonable with clean bathroom. Water in shower was scarce. I stayed in the 4th floor at the back and with the windows closed, it was quiet but with the... More

The room was clean but very small and uncomfortable because I went on summer and there was no a/c. This place is good only for overnighters. Breakfast is ok--nothing special. Poor wifi connection, can't barely connect at all. No parking and street parking is quite a walk. However accessible to train station for commute if not driving.

Really TA has some bad press and how none can describe this dump as better than awful beggars belief the only mitigating factors are the possibility of cheap prior bookings and e friendly receptionists. The stench in the rooms their sall size, the noise and paper thin walks, the crummy breakfast, the noisy doors , where can I end. Opposite... More
