“It does not get any better..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Anita and Gerald who speak English and German were the most gracious host at the Schweizer Pension Solderer in Viena, The breakfasts were great and the room was perfect. Great location, Just a 5 minute walk to the Stephenson Cathedral and all the shopping areas. It is very safe as is most of Vienna, They helped with our day trip to Salzburg and gave us all the travel info we ask for.. What a nice 4 day stay at the Schweizer Pension Solderer. We will never forget the friendliness.
Thank you from Cincinnati...

Room Tip: They are all good..

Frau Klaus and her son, Gerald, were very helpful and friendly. They were very accommodating and provided us with extra toiletries due to our luggage being misplaced at the airport. A very good breakfast, of a wonderful selection of breads, meats, cheeses, and cereals.
Not far to walk to the U-bahn or tram, and just a few blocks to the Innere Stadt.

Schweizer Pension Solderer offers clean, basic accommodations in a great location and at an affordable price. Nearby tram lines and subway station create easy access to all Vienna sites. Vienna has the cleanest and most efficient public transportation system we have ever experienced. Schweizer Pension is a family affair, operated by Mrs. Klaus and her son. They are very friendly and helpful, with good recommendations for nearby restaurants. They will make reservations and arrange tickets for concerts. Some rooms have private bathrooms. Others share. All are well maintained and perfectly clean. There is an elevator to the fourth floor location of the Pension. The breakfast was far more than adequate, with an excellent choice of cereals, breads, jams, meats, cheeses, etc., and amazingly good coffee. The Klaus family take special pride in being ecologically responsible.

Room Tip: Note that some rooms have private baths and others share.

Just returned from our trip to Prague, Vienna and Budapest. We stayed here for 4 nights and found the hotel was clean and efficiently run. Mrs. Klaus and her son, Gerald, do an good job and make this place a good value for the money. They were very accommodating and provided a good breakfast. It is centrally located and easy walking distance from St. Stephen's. Easy access to the tram system for access to all areas of interest. Quiet neighborhood in this busy city. Would recommend to anyone traveling to Vienna who is seeking a good value. We used Rick Steve's guidebook throughout our trip and he never let us down with choices of accommodations or restaurants.

Me and my daughter chose Schweizer Pension to sleep and have breakfast on a 3 day Vienna-trip. Our room had 2 separate very comfortable beds and a small bathroom with all needed inside. Both room and bathroom were clean as they were brand-new.
The host was as nice and friendly as one can guess. Breakfast was tiptop, with a special remark for the very good coffee.
As this is a pension with a small number of rooms you get treated in a most familiar way.
There on top is the very good location of the pension, we always walked to the city center within some minutes...
Whenever we should come back to Vienna we won't hesitate where to book our staying!

Schweizer Pension is nicely situated close to Vienna's beautiful city center. It is family-run already for a long time. I believe it is run by the fourth generation now. Nice clean rooms, fairly basic, but everything is there. Pleasant atmosphere with good personal attention from the owner. Nice home-like breakfast. Very good value for money.

The location is perfect and the pension was clean. The price was good and the accommodations were reasonable. I didn't find it overly welcoming or friendly, but I've been spoiled by amazing accommodations and friendly places at reasonable prices across Europe. There was a really strong emphasis on everything you were not permitted to do (don't put anything in toilet other than special paper, lock windows or you will pay if they break due to wind, don't close door this way, etc.) which I didn't find especially inviting, but if they've had problems with these things in the past I guess I can see the emphasis.
