We had pretty low expectations because we saw the bad reviews after booking it as an anonymous hotel. We knew we wouldn't be able to sleep in a room facing the street, so we asked for a quiet room and got one. Room is pretty ugly but clean and the bed is comfortable. Staff very nice. Location, near southern train... More

We arrived to Vienna by train, so the location of the hotel was perfect, it is just near Hauptbahnhof Station. The staff - the guys working on reception was very nice and friendly. Beds quite comfortable. Though the room was not very clean, with long black hair everywhere, something wrong with the water, no cold water and no refrigerator in... More

No AC, no fan, couldn't open the window because our "closet" was street level. Asked for another room so I could at least open a window and was insulted. The decor in this place hasn't been updated since the place was built. It looks like the furniture was used on the set of Marcus Wellby, M.D. that's how outdated this... More

We had to find a hotel at the last minute due to a train strike. We did not plan on staying in Vienna. This motel was easy walking distance from train station. We arrived at midnight but was greeted by a pleasant attendant. They did have a room available which I was thankful as it was late. The room was... More

A disappointing Budget hotel. We didn’t mind it being outdated, but, the old tv didn’t work, neither did the bedside light, or the fridge (we were told our room shouldn’t have a fridge) and the safe had a flat battery. Breakfast at an extra 9 euros per person wasn’t very inspiring either.

I arrived in Vienna by train, so the location of the hotel was perfect just in front of the Hauptbahnhof Station. The hotel is a two stars, basic with a reasonable room and good bed for sleep, the single room was very clean, it faced the courtyard and it was very quiet, very good for a good night of sleep....

Bang on newly built main railway station .....Wien hbf... Slightly away from city centre. Take Underground (metro) on Red line U1 to reach there. Bed size width is too small in case single room is booked. WiFi does not work properly on 5th floor.

Normally I stay at a hotel that is also across from the Hauptbahnhof and faces on the Wiedner Gürtel but this time it was booked solid due to a meeting and I chose this nearby hotel as the best alternative. It was acceptable but not more. The single room was tiny but clean. It faced on an inner courtyard that... More

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

Staying in Wieden

Neighborhood Profile
Wieden
The fourth district combines elegant tradition with contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles Borromeo have added glamour to a neighborhood known for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns, cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s largest street market. Many bohemian types have found their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and bars, shop alongside them for vintage items, enjoy Wien Museum’s and Kunsthalle’s modern temporary exhibitions, and hang out with the bees at Vienna’s most beautiful urban garden, Karlsgarten.
