Now don't get me wrong - there are probably worse places you could stay - but there are also much better for the money. My wife and I were taking our first break "alone" since we were marrried and Vienna seemed to tick a lot of boxes with regard to architecture, sightseeing, museums/stuff to do and, of course... reasonably priced...

We have just enjoyed five days in Vienna staying at this charming, family-run hotel. Our rooms were clean and comfortable with everything we required. The staff were wonderful throughout, always cheerful and helpful. The hotel's location is very close to the city's excellent tram and U-Bahn systems, five minutes from the city centre by tram from the front door. The... More

Nice large room, newly decorated, free wifi, with free upgrade to jacuzzi (but unfortunately no shower). Breakfast room small but good choice of food. The only problem was the noise - u-bahn, cars, disco and roadworks under my 4th floor window until midnight - and heat: no air-con and a fridge making the room overheated (and obviously not a good...

We stayed there in feb 2014. The staff are so amazing and the room was lovely. Breakfast was always great and the wine at the hotel was so good (try the Pinot noir). Always clean and the bonus of a hot tub in the room always goes down well.

I just spent a month here while studying in Vienna, and the hotel was wonderful! The complementary breakfast is delicious, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and by the time I left I felt I knew several of them personally. The walls are pretty thin, so TV's or conversations from other rooms are sometimes a bother, but their post-10... More

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. The staff were very helpful and our room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was very good and varied. With the tram stop outside and the U bahn 100 yards away getting into the centre and around Vienna was very easy. Would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

This hotel disappointed on every level; service, room cleanliness, bathroom amenities and breakfast quality. This was simply a horrible experience. We found the staff very abrupt and rude when presented with tourist questions.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip, just wanted to say a huge thanks to Nenad on reception for the massive help given during my stay. The rooms were clean and fresh with a great breakfast with loads of choice. The hotel is ideally located for local amenities See you again soon
