I recently stayed here for ten nights whilst on holiday in Vienna. The first thing that struck me was the great location. It is two minutes walk from both Praterstern and Nestroyplatz U-Bahn stops and also numerous trams and buses and Praterstern rail station. There are also lots of restaurants and two good supermarkets nearby, and of course the popular... More

I stayed 1 night at this hotel. It was the worst hotel I have ever stayed. Stinky rooms, dirty reception, no credit cards accepted. Because it was an emergency stay I needed some confirmation from the hotel afterwards. All my e-mails without any response. Never more.

The advantage of this hotel is, that is close to Prater and Vienna center. Hotel looks from outside nicely, but room was bad looking. Bathroom was unpractical and old looking, furniture is the cheapiest I have ever seen and ceiling had spots from the water. Doors from rooms are very thin, we had neighbor, who smoked marihuana and coughed all... More

Hotel Praterstern is a 1-star hotel extremely well situated near to the city center and next to two metro stations. The room was very spaceful with a quite large bathroom and an excellent bed. Airco was working well. The breakfast room is not perfect but if the weather permits you can have your breakfast in the charming courtyard. With a... More

I have spent 3 wonderful days in this hotel a few years back. I had great memories, so I chose it again for our recent stay. I am completely in love with the city but after this time I will never ever stay in this hotel again. My main concern is the amount of cigarette smoke all over the lobby... More

I stayed at this hotel in late November 2012. A local friend booked it on account of it's convenient location and price. I have traveled a great deal and am pretty easy-going. I requested a room with a private bathroom and when I arrived I found the smallest room I have ever stayed in (I could not fully open my... More

Stayed at Hotel Praterstern while attending ECR last year. Apparently this hotel is well kept secret gem of a hotel among the convention visitor.. It is walking distance away from the tubestation which which makes it quite convenient. Ask for the room in the top floor as it seems to be newly renovated and was clean and functional. Internet was... More
