“Average Experience - Barebones Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I'm seeing everyone rave about this hotel, and I wouldn't say it was terrible, but there are some drawbacks in your stay that make the hotel mediocre.

The Good:

- The hotel is not very far from the underground station, making it pretty easy to get to and leave. Basically it's two blocks off a main street where right on the corner is the subway station. It's kind of a pain that the trip to the main street is uphill - not that I mind the exercise, but having to do the walk in the morning was just irritating. But, very convenient.

- The room was clean and comfortable. While there was no air conditioning, you could have the window open that let in enough air to make it tenable.

- Free wifi (more to come). Glad I didn't have to pay for the wifi, it was fast enough and easily accessed.

The Shortfalls:

- First, this hotel is not in the posh area of town. I'm sure you'd pay more for that. The area isn't unsafe, but when you first see it you'll think you're in the 'bad part of town'. You're not, it just looks that way. Ignore that grafitti on the walls of the buildings as you walk there.

- The staff is 'meh'. They didn't seem to want to be particularly helpful, and I was able to get the minimal assistance from them in what I needed. It almost felt as if they were annoyed they worked in a hotel. I didn't really care - but other people might.

- The breakfast. I wouldn't know because I didn't include that in my stay, but probably because it was 15 EURO PER! Holy smokes! A 15 Euro breakfast had better be laced with gold my friend, because that's a pretty heafty bill for what I would expect to be continental fare. To be fair, I didn't see the breakfast, simply because the cost was atrocious. I could grab a buttered roll and coffee at the bakery for 5 euro and call it a day.

- Not sure where one of these reviews (Emmanuel) thinks this is the perfect of everything. The street does have some noise to it - motorcycles, garbage trucks, etc. It's not deafening, and it's not terribly inconvenient, but its there.

- One elevator, 7 floors. You do the math. You'll be fighting with people for the elevator or taking the stairs a few times.

- Pleasant signs on your floor will advise you (as of October 2012) to lock your laptop, wallet, money and passport in your room safe because there have been security 'issues'. I didn't feel very safe after that - given the malaise of the staff and the slightly dingy area. I had no issues, but just the fact that they have to make a general door placard to make sure you get the point tells me there's something going on.

The experience as a whole was average. Nothing that wowed me or pegged this as a place I should stay again. I would stay here if I wanted to see things in the area, but more than likely I'd choose something closer to the heart of town, with a few more amenities and poshness to make my stay delightful rather than a place to crash. I'd recommend this for people on a tight budget - it's pretty austere, and I'm guessing the prices aren't heavy either. If you have a little more money to spend, look for something that is a little higher on the scale.

I will also state that on Webgasse near the main street is a Greek restaurant - Mythos. It has excellent food and I would recommend if you stay at the hotel or are in the area, it's worth a stop in.

Room Tip: I don't think there are any 'Good' rooms. Just take what they give you, after all, you...

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. It's clean, the rooms are nicely decorated and only minutes away from the nearest station. Breakfast was basic but not bad at all. Would recommend it for a short trip to Vienna.

Stayed in this hotel for two nights in July end. It is a very basic but neat and clean hotel which is not too old.

Location:
The hotel is located very close to a metro station (ZieglerGasse) and about 10 minutes from the main Eurail station Westbahnof. It is not in too far from the shopping street as well - but the surroundings aren't too noisy either. Its tucked in a small lane and its rather quiet and peaceful around. It is a little far from the main attractions in the city (the palace & city center) but taking the metro will not hamper the distance. Since it is close to the metro and the eurail station - its always good since you don't have to travel too much with the luggage. There is a supermarket at walking distance from the hotel.

Rooms:
The rooms are good - small but nice, neat and clean. The toilet was small and had a very nice and small shower. The WIFI was free and working all over the hotel. The room lacked an electric kettle - which is essential these days. They should also offer at least one or two bottles of water with compliments in the room since it is much needed and rushing to the store to buy bottles of water is rather to lazy. There was a small fan provided in the room since there wasn't air-con in the room - and frankly since it was drizzling in Vienna when we visited, the air-con wasn't required.

Breakfast/Service:
The staff at the Hotel was kind enough to tell us about directions to touristic places. They were also kind enough to provide us a much early check-in as we had arrived early. The breakfast was just OK and could have been much better. For the quality, class and price of the hotel - the breakfast did not match unto the expectations.

Beware, no AC. We were lucky to be there during decently warm weather otherwise the rooms can get hot, especially if you face the street which is relatively noisy and does not allow keeping the window open during the night.

Next to a subway station (Zieglerglasse), 3 quick stops away from the center of Wien. And if you're into shopping, Mariahilfe is really close. There is parking available (19 EUR/night).

In the area there are not many dining options except for some fast food chains and a few cafes and bars which mostly serve snacks. Better get your dining downtown.

I and my family stayed at Austria Trend Hotel Anatol in July 10-14 2012. Considering its location and staff it was a very good hotel. However we stayed there in a very hot season and the hotel had no air conditioning but only fans in rooms. Therefore we couldn't be able to sleep at all due to unbearably hot air and too loud noise of the fan.

Room Tip: Choose a room without direct access to fire exit staircase if there is any.
