We initially chose this hotel based on its reasonable price and proximity to the Wien Westbahnhof train station, since we were arriving by train close to midnight. A walk across the street and you are there - perfect. The station provides easy access to the public transportation (bus, strassenbahn, and U-ban, making it easy to navigate the city.
The rooms are quite nice although many Americans may find them small. However, everything is up-to-date and in good order. I see a number of complaints about the wireless; yes, only some rooms have guaranteed access, although we could receive the signal in our standard room. But every room has wired access and the wireless is available in the lobby and common areas. Don't knock free wireless when many places in Europe still charge for it....
Breakfast was quite busy, but the staff found us a table and the buffet was well maintained. The breakfast is typical European fare; meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, juices, coffee, yogurts, fruits, and a few hot items like eggs and sausage. There should be something for everyone and the staff was friendly and quick to address needs.
Overall, based on my experience, I would absolutely stay here again and recommend to others.
