We stayed one night at this hotel and wish we could have stayed longer! The location was conveniently located to public transportation and within walking distance of many sights. The rooms were spacious, bright, and clean, The breakfast was delicious! The people were friendly and polite and very helpful! We would definitely stay here again!

A very nice hotel, especially for the price. We had a very roomy Apartment with a full kitchen and washing machine for around 80 euros a night. 14 foot ceilings and huge windows looking out on a nineteenth street . Just a few minutes walk to the Opera house and the museum quarter. Breakfast was included with the room was... More

This was the third time we had stayed at this hotel and would be happy to go back again. Don’t expect uniform, standard hotel-chain quality experience. The Art Nouveau décor is very much in line with the creaking wooden floor tiles. The hotel is clean, well-located and reasonably priced. On our previous stay, by chance, we grabbed a last minute...

Bad experience in Carlton Opera. We had to move in a smallest room due to water going down to the rooftop of our room. Our clothes and shoes were wet e dirty but they did us just a 15% discount on the intire amount and only after a long discussion. The receptionist was not at all comprensive to our right... More

Whether it's the Habsburg Palace, the Vienna State Opera House or the Cafe Museum you plan on visiting, the location of this three star hotel makes it all accessible by foot, even in the depth of winter snow as I discovered. Located on a quiet side street, rooms are compact with new bathrooms and Grohe fixtures in showers and basins.... More

Spent four nights here on a family holiday. After dragging suitcases up the stairs at the entry (there is no alternative), the staff member at reception did not even say hello or welcome. He didn't provide any information about the city or offer advice. Reception staff was not helpful or polite for the whole stay and didn't even say goodbye... More

This is a value for money hotel. Breakfast was included in the room rate. The room was a tiny one but cost effective. There are smoking rooms available. The hotel has a lift, narrow corridors. It's a cozy hotel, ideal for a solo traveler! Breakfast was a nice spread with all kinds of cold cuts and cheese. A definite recommendation... More

Stayed one night when in Vienna on business. Was travelling alone and wanted something close to city centre and inexpensive rather than pay out for something more upmarket. Clean and tidy single room with en-suite and tea making facilities. Mention must be made of the buffet breakfast included in the price. Great selection and quality albeit machine coffee is best...

Staying in Wieden

Neighborhood Profile
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.
