“Comfortable and economic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Right opposite the Sudbahnhof railway station, so easy to locate. From Wien westbahnhof station take tram 18, or take metro to Karlplatz and then change metro to Sudbahnhof. Breakfast was really good, though it was exactly the same on all 4 days - variety of cold cuts, breads/jams/butter/spread, fresh yoghurt, fresh fruits, types of cornflakes with dried fruit, tea/coffee/juice. Very comfortable & spacious room and bed. Bathroom was ok but bathtub was small and difficult to get into/out - you end up splashing water all over the floor. TV had some english channels too. Helpful staff. A little away from the city centre (Karlplatz/Stephanplatz), but if you take a tram/bus/metro, you reach city centre in 10 minutes. For a double bed, we got 2 twins pushed together, but it was ok. Wi-fi was free only for 1 hour. They should provide for 2-3 hours atleast.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your positive feedback on Tripadvisor.
The team and I myself highly appreciate to hear that you had a pleasant stay and enjoyed your room, as well as the breakfast.
WiFi is available in the lounge area for free, and of course, unlimited.
However, you are right that access card time allotment comes in 30 minutes batches and might be inconvenient at certain times. We will definitely make an effort to better explain this to our guests in the future.
Please do not hesitate to contact me personally before your next stay at the Prinz Eugen in order to provide a room with a large bathroom and bathtub.

With best regards
Mariella Thomas, General Manager and team

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

I've stayed at the Prinz Eugen a couple of times, and booked four nights to enjoy Wien again. The hotel is located across the (heavily frequented) road from the new main station buliding site. While the construction means that the surroundings are not very exciting and there aren't really any shops or kiosks nearby, the hotel is easy to find and readily accessible by tram (D, O, 18) and metro (U1) as well as night buses, and the distance from the city centre is about 10 minutes.

I arrived early, between 11 and 12, and after a bit of searching to find my reservation (hotels.com) I was immediately given a room - a great service given such an early arrival! The staff was pleasant and welcoming, and maps and information about Wien was provided without asking. A positive note is that the hotel, in line with the city itself, seems quite traditional and has something Austrian-historic about it.

The room was a double, quite comfortable and had a view towards the centre, away from the construction site and main road. During previous visits the excellent sound-proof windows have made staying on this side comfortable as well. The storage space was adequate, and the room was of an acceptable size, providing excellent air conditioning. The only slight bother was the shower, which - as in all hotels I've visited owned by Austrian hotels - had only a small glass wall to protect the rest of the bathroom from becoming an ocean, which meant you had to spend a couple of minutes afterwards wiping it all up.

The breakfast is served until 10:30 and provides the basics with quality. For a four-star hotel I think the choice could have been more plentiful, though.

In all, I'd be happy to return again. The completion of the new main station on the hotel's doorstep could change conditions dramatically in a couple of years, but regardless of this the Prinz Eugen is a welcoming hotel in an interesting and historic city.

Had the feeling of really being in Austria: classic lobby. Outside horrible (grey), needing some paining and acrross the street there is a hughe constructionsite for the new Central station of Vienna. For me very convenient near the temporary Wien Sudbahnhof station from where I was travelling on. I had a single floor on a higher floor with even a nice balcony !. Very near Schonbrunn and streetcar stops all around Don't know if it noisy on lower floors due to heavy traffic. Breakfastbuffet was adequate but not so much more then that. Very reasonable rate, will surely change when the new station will be finished.

This hotel, although across the street from a major construction project, was just great! We were a group of 8 with four rooms and the rates were excellent. Reception staff, bar and cleaning staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfasts are amazing!

Room Tip: Go for the rooms at the back of the hotel. Floors 7 and 8 have great views over the rooftops of Vien...
