Stayed at the Congress Hotel for 7 nights... Great hotel and very close to the main train station & Metro stations.. Rooms are very clean with a very comfortable bed.. Stuff is very helpful. Breakfast was good, they also have a luggage room.. The only drawback is no kettle in room... Will visit agian

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

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
