I stayed in this hotel for several days, being in Vienna for a conference. We chose this hotel, because it was a very busy period in Vienna and we could not find one closer to the center and to our conference place. As a matter of fact, it is a little bit outcentered, but very close to a metro station... More

The hotel is an original, it has been in the family for years, and when you enter the dog barks while deciding on which side he should eating his bone... the rooms are clean, the bed is certainly very comfortable, so are the pillows. once one heads down for breakfast, it is a place to stay.

The most pleasant staff I have so far met. The breakfast was excellent so next time I had to eat was in early evening. In my room I had a small shower but not a toilet which I knew beforehand. It was fine with me as I did look for an affordable place to stay. I'm sure there are rooms... More

We chose this hotel because it is a short walk from my sister's apartment. Our room was very clean and fairly large. The bedding was very comfortable and the location quiet. Even though it was unusually hot (90s) for a couple of days the temperature in the room was comfortable even without air conditioning. The ladies who run the hotel... More

The Hotel is located outside of vienna, but you can reach the Center by tram in 15 minutes. The neighbourhood is also nice and you can find some shops and restaurants. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The room was very big, clean and had everything you need including a Big tv. The hotel itself is small and you... More

We were there with friends the first weekend in October and got adjoining rooms on the 1st floor. Anna, the owner was very gracious, helpful and patient. The hotel was undergoing extended remodeling and the outside of the building was surrounded in scaffolding which made it a challenge to find. The windows had plastic over them to keep dust out...

I travel to Vienna once a year for my job and I always stay in this hotel. Rooms are large and clean, breakfast is deliciously fresh and complete but above all the two Ladies that run this hotel are very nice and ready to help with anything you need. They make you feel at home and I think it is... More

We had come to Vienna for a medical emergency as our mother travelling on a group tour got hospitalized in Vienna and we had to fly in to look after her. Not the trip you plan for. We did stay at the Hotel Schwalbe given its location being close to the hospital. You don't really expect anything when you arrive... More

My Wife and I have just returned from Vienna where we stayed for three nights in Hotel Schwalbe, room 104. We are in our 70's and specified a "quiet" room. Our choice to stay here was based on reading tripadviser reviews and watching the video produced by familie Tomek. Often the experince falls short of the actual experience. On this... More

10 minutes from historical downtown. Free parking in the street. Location enables you to discover another part of Vienna, outside of the touristic zone and yet to be close from it, by tramway, bus or subway. Nice and efficient welcome with advices on what to do, where to go... Room 105 was clean, full of light and when doors and... More

Staying in Ottakring

Neighborhood Profile
Ottakring
The production site of popular Ottakringer beer brews up an exciting mix of working and middle class suburbs, Balkanese immigrant lifestyles, and lush patches of hilly woodland. The recently gentrified area around Yppenplatz and Brunnenmarkt boasts hip cafés and bars next to South East European delicacies at Brunnenmarkt street market. The dynamics of Ottakring become most apparent at its vibrant high street Ottakringer Strasse. At the top end you can feast on wine and local food in Austria’s oldest wine tavern 10er Marie. The wines are from the tavern’s own urban vineyards. Before you head upwards, make sure you pay a visit to the historic courtyards between Lerchenfelder Gürtel and Hippgasse. When locals visit Ottakring’s hilly green outskirts on the weekends they either climb up 31 meters of Jubiläumswarte viewing tower on Gallitzinberg, have a succulent Wiener Schnitzel at Villa Aurora, or reward their hiking exertions around Wilhelminenberg with a drink and a view from Wilhelminenberg Palace (now a hotel and restaurant).
