“Nice rooms, handy for the city centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

The location of the hotel is very good, a couple of minutes walk from a metro stop and on the banks of the Danube. By metro it's less than fifteen minutes into the centre of the city and only three stops to the Prater wheel. The view over the river is probably a bit nicer in summer and there's an outdoor swimming pool open then.

The staff were very welcoming and we were checked in and in our room very quickly. The room was large, with a comfortable king-size bed and a nice sofa by the window.

We especially enjoyed the executive lounge on the top floor. The free breakfast and dinner buffets were very good and the afternoon coffee and cakes were worth getting back in time for.

There's a shopping mall beside the metro station and there are a few supermarkets nearby but otherwise it's a residential area.

Room Tip: Views are better from the river side and higher floors are even better.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. We upgraded on the second night for a room with a view which with being newyear and all the fireworks going off it was well worth it.

The hotel was just out side the city centre, but with only a 5min walk to the underground and a short journey into the city centre it was perfect.

We had the hogmany gala dinner, which was excellent.

With the stadion shopping centre only the 5 mins walk from the hotel it was great.

Room Tip: Its well worth paying a little extra for a river view

Bit posh for us. But everything was superb really. Staff were awesome and the value was great. Some of the guests were a bit snobby. Great location right on the river but a bit of a task to get there via public transport. More of a couples or business hotel than a family hotel. highly recommend .

Fantastic hotel. Could not rate it higher. Very easy to get to on airport shuttle but have a copy of location on a map because bus drops you at Stadion Centre which is the Metro stop. (Only 5 mins walk from there and right next to a shopping centre). Fabulous rooms, unbelievable service from the staff. Fantastic location for families. Few stops on the metro and you are in central Vienna but to be able to do a huge day sightseeing and come back to the hotel and not worry about where to have dinner takes a huge amount of pressure off. Spent from 9:30 to 8:30pm out with 2 kids aged 11 & 8 and then for dinner.....and the kids ate free. Amazing restaurant staff, especially Christian :-)

We did not get any free drink, nor free wi-fi.... But when my wife and me checked in for 6 nights stay and asked for room with view to the Danube they charged us an extra 20 € a night.

Then we got a room, just to wake up in the middle of the night in a freezing cold room, with faulty air-con. After a sleepless night, all they offered us as a compensation was 1 free drink at the bar or 1 day of free Wi-Fi.

We really did not expecting much, but all to be asked is where the famous generous "hilton spirit"?

We stayed one night only early in December (could have stayed more!). The staff were friendly and welcoming. The rooms huge and very comfortable. Nice bar area and good restaurant. Our chicken schnitzel was superb ! Great buffet breakfast. Lovely views over the Danube and a short walk to a large shopping complex. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Booking directly through Hilton got us this hotel for three nights with breakfast buffet for two adults for less than a hotel half this good. The rooms are huge, the beds are super comfy, and the staff could literally not be more helpful. From directions to recommendations to the Vienna card, they supplied everything we needed. As a bonus, the hotel also has a great bar and lunch/dinner restaurant on site. The breakfast buffet was full European and full American with specialty coffees and all juices included. It was a tremendously enjoyable stay and we would happily go again.
