“Really great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

The senator is really a great place for a Vienna holiday. The staff is friendly, rooms are big and clean, the breakfast is awesome. And the best, the prices are very fair. Bus/Tram stop are just few meters away. Great. Looking forward to my next stay.

Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights and was pleasantly suprised. The hotel is very cheap for Vienna but offers a service which is definitely a step up from most cheap and basic hotels. The bedrooms are large, exceedingly clean, had decent quality basic furniture and the only real items missing were an alarm clock and a fridge. The bathroom was again large, clean and the shower was powerful and warm. The availability of free wifi is a major plus point.

The breakfast in the morning was again better than the price would suggest with plentiful supplies of cereal, cheeses, meats, yoghurts and coffee that was drinkable. There were limited hot food options. The bar again is small and if you are in a large party not really much use but it was fully stocked with all the basics and the prices were not the usual extreme hotel prices.

The location is slightly outside the city centre but there is a frequent and easy to use tram service.

All in all very pleasantly suprised. The hotel is good value for money with clean large rooms and good breakfast and bar.

We`ve chosen the hotel Senator because of the mostly good ratings on tripadvosir and the good price we got. An we were not disappointed. The rooms are clean, the staff very friendly and the breakfast was also totally fine. There is a tram going to the city center right in front of the hotel, so we didn`t mind that it was a a bit far off the the center. We would come here again.

Small hotel, not far from the centre. In front of hotel there is a tram station (No. 43) to the Stephan platz. Rooms are functional and very clean, breakfast is below average. Good sides are also free wifi in rooms and garage.

If you want to avoid an expensive taxi, you can arrive at this hotel so : taking from Vienna Airport the S bahn until Bahnhof Wien Mitte station, and then the metro U3 line until Westbanhof ; then you change to U6 line until Alserstrasse station ; from here you arrive at the hotel with tram no.43 – Wattgasse station (the third station from the depart).
The hotel is situated at 15 minutes with tram from the center of Vienna, and I appreciated the very good quality services offered here. The breakfast is excellent, and the personnel is friendly. The rooms are very clean, and welcoming.
Near the hotel is a Lidl Supermarket, and other shops.
A convenient solution for the public transport is Vienna Card, if you consider to travel much in Vienna.
I recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side are quieter

I was impressed about how clean are the rooms. Also the breakfast is quite diversified. I recommend this hotel for its comfort related to its low price per room.
It also has a good localisation, not so far to the Stephan platz. In front of the hotel there's also a tram station.

On the negative side, wifi is not free

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms placed in front of the Main Street.

Recently renovated and very very clean. Comfy mattress and a fairly decent shower, also helpful staff at frontdesk. Noteworthy soundproof windows, since tram stops right in front and you won't hear a thing. Not so great breakfast, though.
