My wife and I have just spent 4 very enjoyable nights at the Danauwalzer and we cannot praise it highly enough. From the moment we arrived on Monday evening until we reluctantly had to come home on Friday 'all' of the staff we came across were excellent.

The staff makes this hotel feel like 4 stars. The reception staff is friendly and extremely patient. Special thanks to Frau Lenka and Mr. Nenad for their patience, clear directions, and friendly attitude. They all speak English very well and pay attention to you. I stayed for 5 nights.

I booked the hotel for 5 nights in February for stay in July. They advertised for Private Spa which I was happy to include in the total tariff. When reached hotel, they said Private Spa was out of order for weeks. No notification was sent to me with regards to this. It was just electricity saving from the hotel's side... More

We stayed for six nights at ghetto Hotel Donauwazltzer. We were in Vienna for a bit of a holiday but also to look for an apartment to live in following a job change.

I stayed for four nights for a Congress in Vienna. The booking was a special rate for the congress and was exceptionally good value. The hotel is very pleasant and has the indefinable individual character due to not being part of a chain. The room was comfortable, breakfast good and staff exceptionally friendly. City centre access is very easy by... More

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.

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.
