We were looking for a small place to stay, and one not too expensive. Pension City was perfect! Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Room had a fridge and mini bar. We had air conditioning, which was a godsend since highs were in the 90s that week. Right in the heart of the city, so it was an easy walk... More

We chose it for its proximity to Stephansplatz (which I had already visited and I liked very much) . Average hotel but with very friendly , helpful and sympathetic . And really in the center of Vienna from them in a few minutes walk you gets you to Hoffburg . It has near two metro lines . It will end... More

Location is absolutely perfect just a block away from Stephansdom - very very central. The staff is very friendly, the rooms spotless and comfortable with airconditioner. The complimentary apples, coffee, tea and small bottle of wine a nice touch. Free wifi. You will be able to get cheaper accommodation elsewhere, but the price paid was worth it. Breakfast was an...

Only stayed in Vienna for two days so I was not looking for an expensive or big hotel since I would be outside the whole day. Got a single room and I was honestly surprised how nice it was. Cannot even say how nice it was for the price since I stayed in a lot worse hotels that cost more... More

I researched Vienna for days. We were on a budget but didn't want to sacrifice location. This is the only hotel I could find that is the perfect location and not too expensive. A very good value. The rooms are quite small. Definitely a 2-3 star hotel but with a staff that makes the most of your stay in the... More

I spotted this same hotel that we stayed in 20 years ago, on Tripadvisor. It has been given a total revamp, with new bathrooms, classic furnishings and excellent beds. Rooms and bathrooms are compact due to the historical building just steps from the Stephans Platz, the heart of Vienna. We walked everywhere. Maximillian gave us fantastic advice on taking a...

The hotel has a good location near Stephansplatz, close to shopping, restaurants and public transportation. The rooms were fairly small, but had everything you need, including a small minibar and safe. Art on the walls and fresh flowers in the room, complimentary fruit, sparkling water and chocolate :) Breakfast was good, only downside was that it didn't open before 07.30,... More

The hotel is really a floor of "apartments" which apparently is typical for an Austrian hotel. The rooms felt like a hotel room but thee is no extra services aside from maid service in the morning. Great location 5 minute walk from St Stephens Cathedral. We were able to get around the city easily from this location. We had 2... More

They really do have a personal touch here. From the handwritten welcome card to the little cookies on the pillow, they really do go the extra step here to make you feel welcome. The front desk staff is extremely nice and helpful too. Very impressed with this little place. Perfectly located too.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
