There is a massive difference between the so called Two stars hotel, which is actually situated across the road, and where you will have to walk to for your tasteless breakie...
...and the student accommodation that is the Guesthouse Avis!!! Very basic student accommodation turned tourist trap during summer... This is not a two stars accommodation. It can't be. But booking it on internet was certainly misleading.
We're a happy couple, we love to travel and I'm glad to say that we can laugh about it all in the end, but we have never stayed in such a bad place before... We got really surprised by how small the beds were and no choice for double beds, only twins available!, and the amount of dust everywhere, not mentioning a permanent sewage smell in the corridors...
Well, if you're after a monastic type of accommodation in a building that resembles an abandoned ex-hospital or ex-prison, this is for you! No TV, no comfort, no kettle, no iron (ah yes, the only iron is downstairs, locked in an empty room that looks like an ex torture room, with an abandoned fridge... mind the electric shock as it's been well used!)
Sure the location is quite wonderful, very central in a lovely quarter of Vienna, but really, for another EUR100.00 we could have found a much better place to stay. That's the only time we have regretted not to pay more money for basic comfort!
