This hotel is in a good location within walking distance of the centre of Vienna and close to both train and tram stops. The hotel itself is just a floor of a larger building and although there is a sign on the street you can easily miss it so make sure you have good directions. My room was reasonable, the... More

Pension Excellence is a great place for the big group of friends or big family that needs several rooms. Every evening after whole day in the city our company of 12 could have late tea party in the lobby/breakfast area; very friendly staff let us use tea pots, cups, utensils. Breakfast was good, coffee/cappuccino - excellent. Clean rooms. Computers with... More

The hardest part was actually locating the Hotel. GPS said it was within 50m but physically hard to find as only a nondescript front door with a relatively small sign above, very hard to see with all the traffic. Having found the front door it was a equally hard to find reception again a small sign pointing up the steps... More

A bit outside center you find this Pension at 3'rd floor in a place you would not search for a hotel. Rather simple rooms - bed is OK - pillow not so good. I was there in winter - and no heating problem. But no A/C in the room. The WiFi functions OK in the lobby/breakfast area - but not... More

Main problem with this hotel is its location. Away from the town center and next to a main road, which is EXTREMELY noisy. There was no A/C in the room - hotel is advertised as having ''general A/C'' on booking.com, but the only place they had A/C was in the dining room. Our room faced onto the main street and... More

First of all, this is not a separate building-hotel, like you most likely expect. It’s situated on the 2-nd and 3-rd floor of an office-building, so it’s a bit difficult to find it. In fact, there’s no lobby, the reception-desk is on the 3-rd floor. You need instructions to find the garage and a remote control to open it, and... More

This hotel looks nothing like you see online. The carpets in the hallways or rooms are incredibly felthy, chairs are torn, and extremely noisy rooms. Wireless internet is not free and I wasn't sure how safe it was. Don't fall in the trap of "affordable", you get what you pay for, or even less in this case. Run

This is a hotel which is good in parts. The rate is reasonable. It's on the second floor. You can take a tram in the mornings which brings you quickly to Schottentor U-bahn station, and it is in a nice part of town. The good parts: the breakfast is good, the place is spotless, feeling very hygienic and is generally... More
