“Great staff and fine location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Chances are you could search the world and not find a more accomodating hotel staff than in this small, centrally-located hotel. Two blocks from the metro, 3 blocks to city hall, 4 from the parliament, and 5 from the museums make this about the best location for being a Vienna tourist. But, the room was a bit creaky, the staff is what makes the experience worth it all. I asked many questions of several front desk staff and each went above and beyond in their helpfulness. The only tip is to avoid their overpriced buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: Avooid the breakfast...way too expensive and the local bakeries are much better!

Cordial by name and descriptive of staff. Hotel well located, clean and excellent breakfast. Bonus to have bedroom, small lounge and kitchenette. Room in front may have traffic noise but did not prevent us sleeping. Very good value for Spring break May 2013.

Easy to get to from airport and short walk to Rathaus Metro station or walk straight into the city. Breakfast was amazing but not cheap (18 Euro full buffet). Room was great but pillow standard needs to lift! Staff were very helpful with any extras not already in rooms (cutlery, bowls, iron), and probably would have given us new pillows if we'd asked :)

The staff were very helpful, room comfortable, clean and warm. Breakfast was extra but very good. Overall a very enjoyable 3 night stay. On our first night the porter went out of his way to look up places we could view the Klimt paintings.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel a very quiet.

I'm somewhat confused by the very positive reviews of this hotel, which leads me to think there may be a huge difference in some of the rooms. Our room (3rd floor) was small and as many have said the decor is very outdated. The bed was possibly one of the worst I've slept in, somewhat like a futon with two single mattresses instead of one large double. Dirty towels in the bathroom when we arrived and the safe was broken. Add to that the fact that you had to pay for use of the WIFi and kitchenette, it didn't leave a lot to like about the place.

The hotel in general doesn't offer much worth staying around for, a small bar and restaurant. The location is good, just behind Rathaus/City Hall and very close to restaurants, some shops and a subway stop.

My main problem with this hotel is that for €134 per night, I would expect more than what was effectively a hostel-like room.

Located a few blocks from the train station, it was also a short walk to the Innerstradt. Our room was decorated with mahogany furniture and fashionable art deco prints. The mini bar was stocked with good local brews. The bathroom was large by European standards. My daughter's room had a view with a lot of natural light. Although it faced the street, it was very quiet at night. The only problem we had was that my daughter cut her lip when the soap bottle dislodged from the holder and hit her in the face. The staff gave her ice, which helped with the swelling. I guess that's why they have a sign in the tub telling you to pull the string for emergency.
