“If you like to eat breakfast, don't stay here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We stayed here two nights in May 2013, the rooms are average. The location is OK, relatively speaking its handy-ish. In my book, the worse part (and the reason I would never stay here again) is the breakfast they serve up is rubbish, the milk smelled off, the bread was old, the bacon thin and greasy (and i like greasy but this was "waiter can i get a little bacon with my grease here?") overall the breakfast was not edible, I thought OK, at least I can have a cup of tea here, they can't possibly stuff that up - AH NO I was wrong! dirty cups and funny tasting water!

If you enjoying eating breakfast at hotels you stay in (and you should as you pay for it in the price at this place) then I would advise to give this place a BIG MISS!

Room Tip: This hotel is not worth staying at, if you plan on eating the terrible breakfast they serve up!

The hotel has a wonderful location: 10 mins walk to city center and right off the airport shuttle bus. Rooms are spacious although not very well decorated. Staff is friendly. Ok breakfast. Overall a good choice in city center.

The hotel staff was very noisy and rude. On the 1st night, we heard hoovering at 7am. In the morning we were demanded to leave the breakfast room at 10am because breakfast finished at 10am!! So you can't stay sat down to finish your breakfast beyond that time. The breakfast buffet was very basic and staff started removing the buffet at 9.50 and hoovering around your shoes!! When 10am struck, one staff employee came to inform us sharply that we had to leave. One of my friends who is German explained that we had not finished breakfast. She retorted that he was obviously German! He replied that she was obviously rude! As you can see a very tourist friendly hotel! I informed the receptionist that I had been woken up too early by a hoover. He told me that he would inform the staff manager. The next morning, instead, I heard the staff laughing out loud from 5.30am! We were not the only ones being disappointed and badly managed. As we were walking out of the hotel to go for breakfast elsewhere than the hotel!, a couple of Italians were clearly having troubles at reception from the shouts that we were hearing. From what my German friend understood, the reply from the receptionist was far from friendly and conciliating! The hotel rooms were really basic so the only clear positive point is that it is very well situated ... but that's all!!

Room Tip: Room 120 is too noisy. You can hear the staff downstairs from 5.30am and the hoover at 7am!

The hotel impresses with its significance, traditional interior, solidity. Spacious rooms with high ceilings, old good-quality furniture, a spacious bathroom. Rooms are different, our adult children got room recently renovated, with a refrigerator and an LCD TV, modern bathroom, and we had a room is old, with a CRT TV, but comfortable and enjoyable.The location in the heart of the old city (inner city), two steps away from the ring (Schwedenplatz) and three steps from Shtefanplatz. Staff is friendly. Breakfast is good. I recommend to all

This hotel is right off of the U1 Red line Schwedenplatz. It is very convenient to get you anywhere around the city. The rooms are nice and clean. Staff is really friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is a traditional Austrian breakfast of meats and cheeses.

I stayed at the hotel for a week. The location is perfect and you can walk to most attractions of Vienna. The room was clean and roomy and felt homely. Also nice and warm considering outside was freezing cold. Breakfast very good for a 3* hotel. Helpful staff. An overall pleasant and comfortable experience. Considering Vienna is an expensive city, this hotel was value for money.

Room Tip: As there are different sized rooms, ask for one of the big ones

Stayed here as part of a Rick Steves tour and for a few days after. Room was large, clean with some outside noise from local nightclub. Front desk staff not very helpful or friendly but it depended on who was staffing it. Some were more helpful than others. Hotel restaurant was convenient for a meal if coming in late after a long day of touring.
