“New modern rooms, excellent hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Pros:
- Spacious, fresh, modern rooms. No single detail I could complain about. I would compare the room quality to 4* rooms in US and 5* in Europe.
- Very clean
- Good-looking reception
- Convenient location (tram 43 takes you to and from city center in ~10min, cruises every few minutes)
- Few very good places to eat in walking distance
- Underground garage parking(16EUR/day)

Cons:
- End of April when I visited the hotel was quite warm (~20). Hotel air conditioner(and ventilation) system works only for heating. It means that the only way you can get fresh and not warm air is opening windows. And right under your windows you have 6 car lanes and 2 tram lanes so it is quite noisy there. And with closed windows over night the air will be VERY unpleasant at morning.

We spent 4 nights here in an attic room which was very nice. When the windows are open you can hear the cars from the street but this did not bother us. Room was clean and the staff friendly. The hotel is located about 20min by tram from the city center. We would definitely return.

We had a lovely stay here, it was located slightly out of the city but transport was within easy reach. The staff were friendly and the rooms nice. The breakfast was ample and a great start to the day.
Overall a perfectly acceptable 3 star hotel.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at the senator and I can't complain about anything major. I booked through booking.com and got a great deal. The hotel was a good 15 minute tram ride from the city Centre which is comparatively close in Vienna. The area surrounding the hotel is nothing to get excited about but at least it isn't too noisy.

Upon checking in they didn't have my booking in the system which caused some confusion. If you book online I would call them as well to confirm they got you. In the end they had just forgotten to print out my reservation from their email. They were friendly enough staff and all was postive there.

The rooms were clean and fresh. Beds were comfy enough. My shower head in room 342 was broken but didn't really stop me from enjoying a beautiful shower. Nice soap and clean towels were provided.

The sound proofing from the street is amazing but from the room above it is average. I could hear footsteps but again this didnt annoy me at all.

Awesome pizza shop is nearby and I suggest visiting it.

I reccomend this hotel if you obtain a good deal.

We stayed at the Senator for 3 nights and found the room to be very warm, clean and comfortable. The reception/bar area is pleasant and you can get hot drinks down there too. The whole hotel is well kept and perfect for a short stay in a city.
The hotel is close to the tram stop and easy enough to get into the main sightseeing area. The reception staff were very nice and helpful.
The only downside was the breakfast. We had no problem with the limited foods but the machines dispensing "hot" water and "hot" milk only gave very lukewarm drinks. The fruit on offer was tinned and as the srambled eggs were also cold, a serving of boiled eggs would have made a nice change from cheese. I would also have nuts and dried fruit in containers as the nuts didn't taste fresh. My husband enjoyed the coffee which was hot. Some adjustments would make the breakfast much better.

Room 518 is the greatest. I highly recommend it :). Extremly clean and cosy. Not all the personnel is polite but you can get over that. Relatively low rates and it is just some stations with the tram 43 away from the City Centre
