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

stayed for two nights May 2012 in order to visit a realtive in the nearby hospital. Loved the place. It just had a special flair, fusing traditional and modern Viennese styles. The room was furnished simply but tastefully, very comfortable bed. It looks like they converted a turn of century or earlier appartment building so the rooms are large and... More

The hotel Schwalbe is a small hotel but very cosy and it has a homely atmosphere. It is situated in a quiet part of Vienna and all the sights of the city are easily accesible by metro, the station is just a few minutes walking from the hotel. Our room was spacious and clean and we couldn't hear any other... More

The hotel Schwalbe is a close to our hearts as it was here that my husband and I stayed 15 years ago, when he proposed to me! Revisiting 15 years later we were delighted to find the hotel still being run by the Tomek family and still as charming and characterful as ever. We were warmly welcomed back by Patricia,... More

It's a small and sweet hotel and with a beautiful story. Family Tomek runs this hotel for 40 years!(I enjoyed listening to their history) In the beginning of my 5-day stay, I lived in a single room (65 Euro), but the heater of hot-water didn't work, then the following days, they change a big (double/triple) room for me (with the...

A conference host in Vienna found us this hotel when we stressed that we needed something reasonable. We moved from a slick, modern hotel to the Hotel Schwalbe for a two-night stay. It is about an eight-minute walk from the Ottakring metro station, in a primarily residential neighborhood. It is an authentic old Viennese hotel, with all the amenities of... More
