I spent 11 nights here. This is an older building, maybe a century or more, but does not show its age, only its elegance. The smaller rooms lack air conditioning, a definite disadvantage in the heat of July, but I only was really uncomfortable on two nights. The staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. The large and varied breakfast buffet... More

Very clean, safe area. walking distance to every thing. Although my visit to Vienna was brief, I was traveling and needed a clean, safe, nice hotel within walking distance from the major sites. I got everything with this hotel and would stay again.

Hotel Erzherzog Rainer is a great choice for all-purpose sight-seeing. It's an older hotel (in the good sense, i.e., even under its new brand it doesn't feel like a chain hotel) and "feels" more expensive than it is. I stayed three nights in one of its simpler rooms (at less than 100 Euro/night): no air-conditioning, but a fan, flat-screen tv,... More

I stayed for two nights - 21st to 23rd June this year. From the time I arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. My room was larger than I expected for the price, clean and very well presented. As others have said the location is great - outside the centre but close enough to walk or take the... More

We stayed for a long weekend and thought the hotel was just right. It has lovely clean rooms with a fan which we found ok even though it was quite hot outside.

If you like nice staff, great service and good breakfast, it's a hotel to stay in, 20 minutes walk city center. The only problem is a noisy main street near by and some rooms having a view to the main street, It's also very warm - rooms are small. But the service and breakfast somehow compensate the bad sleep. The... More

Had a car and this hotel provides parking in a garage one block away. The parking was 20 Euros a night. Next time I would opt to park on the street. I saw a lot of open spaces near the garage. The hotel was old with lots of charm. The streetcars were easily assessable outside the hotel. The rooms were... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during the heat wave in Vienna. While the lobby and the restaurant has air condition the rooms do not. The room had blinds, so you can block the sun, but the bathroom did not and the heat from morning sun made it unbearable. On a positive note,the room and bathroom were very... More

Hotel is well situated walking distance from center of the town. It is a well kept and renovated 19th century building (I believe), combining great service - on the level of 5 star hotels - and a good restaurant. Room was spacious although a little bit noisy if you want to sleep longer, but there are rooms that don't face... More
