“Old style keys, otherwise very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We stayed at the Johann Strauss Hotel for two days in early October after a two week Rick Steves tour.

Location: Close to the subway with restaurants near by. Close enough to walk to old town if you want.

Hotel: Rooms are different sizes like many old houses that were converted to hotels. We were on the 6th floor in room 607. It wasn't big but adequate and seems to have been recently renovated. The elevator is small but can fit two people with luggage.
My only complaint with the room was the door key which was a standard key with the heavy key fob that has to be turned in at the desk when you leave. The problem with this process is that anyone could come in, ask for the key to your room then rob you and return the key as they leave. Change door keys to a card key and the hotel would be close to perfect.

Food: There is a bar but no restaurant in house. The breakfast selection is quite large and so is the sitting area so you shouldn't have a problem finding a place to sit.

Value: I thought the price was good for this nice a hotel and being close to the old town area.

Staff: The staff was friendly and spoke good English. They were able to assist in finding the local metro station.

Room Tip: Ours was room 607 which was ok. I will include a layout for the 6th floor in my photos that was on t...

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your detailed feedback.

You are correct our location is great, close to lots of restaurants and only steps to the old town of Vienna.

It was a pleasure to read that you like our large breakfast selection and our friendly staff.

We are very sorry that you did not like our key-system but we assure you that nobody can take the key without key-pass or personal identification.

Thank you again for taking the time to post your impressions. We hope to welcome you soon again!

Best regards from Vienna.

Not an expensive hotel but more than adequate for a short city break. Great location being 30m from the underground and 1 or 2 stops from main shopping areas. Liked the breakfast, very good selection and well presented. Room was very clean. Wifi is an advantage but should be standard in all hotels these days. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay again. No problems experienced.

During my last visit to ORF radio, I booked this hotel.

The room and bathroom is spacious and very clean. The accomodation is basic but ok

The wifi was not working very fine, as I was at the end of the hallway. Rooms near the elevator would have less problems I think. When the co nection was working, it went fast enough.

Breakfast was very good. A choice of all you expect for a decent start of the day.

Overall a good impression, I would book this hotel again when I have to be in that neighbourhood

Room Tip: If you want to have a good wifi connection, take a room in the middle

The hotel is in District 4 which is in walking distance for many places. This was a reasonably priced hotel that was well worth it. The front desk planned our concert the first night we got there then planned day trips to Budapest, Prague and a 3 hour tour of Vienna. The rooms were very big and very comfortable. They did have an elevator and a bellman to take our luggage. The free breakfast was fantastic. Many other hotels have another much higher rate if you want breakfast.

We were able to walk to the open market (highly suggested and eat there too) and the Opera House where there is plenty of shopping and Hotel Sacher Cafe to try their famous torte.

Loved our 4 days at this hotel. Only 53 rooms and a tiny elevator but big hearted, friendly and helpful staff. gave advice, booked shows, did daily laundry, and served the best breakfasts of our Central Europe trip, in an elegant pair of dining rooms. Room and bathroom very clean and comfortable, modern windows and AC, but old fashioned leave- at- front -desk key, no cards here. Wi Fi up to date. You really felt you were in an historic city, as a guest in this hotel. Welcoming sunken lobby side bar with leather lounge furniture for drinks, sandwiches etc. Many restaurants within a few blocks serving good meals.

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in February this year, with my parents. We had 2 rooms, very big and large, with vintage furniture that made us feel like living in the old times in Viena. For us it was perfect! Everything we've seen in pictures on the internet about this hotel we actually seen at the point. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean and a very good thing is that the toilet is separated from the bathroom. We had the view to the street and I can say it was quiet because not many cars passed on that street. Breakfast was excellent, the food always fresh and very tasty. Oh and the coffee, i think it was one of the best I've ever had. In the dining room we were listening to Beethoven, Johann Strauss and other composers, and we felt so classy. The hotel is near to a metro station, just a short walk and you can get very easy to the center of Viena by foot. In all the hotel we had free wifi and it had a pretty good connection. All I can say is that if you stay in this hotel, you will receive what you have payed for, having no regrets!

We stayed here for a few nights on our way to Hungary on the 3rd floor, and returned a week later and stayed for another 2 nights on the 5th floor. Both rooms were clean and the airconditioning worked well, the room on the 5th floor was carpeted and more spacious. The beds were very comfortable and the wi-fi was fast. There is also a computer and printer downstairs in the lounge for guests. Now, the breakfast was superb! Quite a banquet with everything anyone could ever want for their breakfast, including fresh fruit which is a favourite of mine. The staff provided us with the best option to park our car to avoid a parking ticket as the parking officers are prevalent in this area. An easy stroll to nearby cafes and restaurants, plus the U-bahn is closeby.

Room Tip: Our room on the 5th floor was spacious.
