If you need a clean, nice and definitely not expensive hotel for a Vienna city-break this would be one I reccomend. Perfect location: not in the heart of th city, but in a silent neighbourhood and close to many public transportation (tram and subway directly to city center), close to Shönbrunn, Mariahilfer str. Friendly staff, Wi-fi.
Our room had no minibar (actually no fridge at all) but we did not complain.
Overall we spent a great weekend here.

We stayed a couple of times recently on our tour of Austria. The reception staff were all very pleasant, helpful and spoke good English.

The hotel was very clean, the rooms basic but functional - this hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi, which is useful. The breakfast was, overall, the best we experienced across 4 hotels we stayed in across Austria. Good Choice and excellent bread rolls and pastries. Position of the coffee machine caused a problem when the hotel was busy as a queue of people waiting for coffee blocked the way, which cause a bit of a hazard when guests are carrying hot drinks. Both rooms we stayed in had faulty pedal bins so you had to manually lift the lid to open, which is not very hygienic. Also the safes were a little temperamental in both rooms we stayed in. On one stay it jammed completely but the reception staff promptly sorted it out for us with a smile. Only a 5 min walk from the nearest underground station entrance and on the train, less than 15 mins from the historic heart of Vienna, this hotel enjoys a relatively convenient location without having to pay silly central Vienna prices. If we stay in Vienna again we would definitely stay here.

This is a mid-range hotel in a good location. We spent three nights there as a couple traveler. The staff was great and nothing was trouble. Quality and also type of the buffet breakfast was excellent. As far as location, if you want to be right in the middle of things, it may not be ideal. You need to get on the U3 line to get anywhere, but the station is an easy walk from the hotel and the 3 line is very convenient for moving to Ring through stations such as Volkstheater, Herrengasse, and Stephansplatz.
We booked the hotel because of its reasonable price and the great reviews. We are very pleased with the hotel and agree with the comments posted.

Lucia is a fantastically convenient hotel. Only 7 underground stops away from the City Centre (Stephansplatz). The closest underground station (Johnstrasse) itself is literally a couple of minutes away. There are tram and bus stops nearby, which will get you everywhere you need to go. It took us roughly 20 minutes of nice leisurely walk to get to Schoenbrunn Castle.

There are large supermarkets like Spar in a close proximity if you need to shop for snacks or groceries.

We took a taxi from Vienna Airport to the hotel, but it's much cheaper and probably quicker to take a fast train (CAT) to Landstrasse and then a tube from there (it's on the same line as Landstrasse). Return CAT ticket is 17 euro, whereas taxi transfer was 35 euro one way. The journey from the airport by CAT takes about 12 minutes to Landstrasse and then 10 stops on the tube. We took this option on our way back.

Our room must have been recently refurbished - everything was brand new and really clean. The bed was very comfy and the linen very fresh. The breakfast was plentiful and with lots of choice. It kept us going until the evening meal, so really good value.

We were surprised that there was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room and no minibar - hence no little fridge. But then I read somewhere that having cooking equipment in hotels is against the Austrian law (presumably Health & Safety). Still, if you need a hot or cold drink - they sell them in the reception downstairs at a cost of 1 or 1.5 euro (I think) for a tea or coffee, which is really reasonable.

There is free internet in the reception area if you don't carry your own equipment and just want to check something out. Not many TV channels in English, but then again, you're not there to watch telly.

The reception staff are very friendly and helpful and speak excellent English. One of them recommended Bieriger on Schweglerstrasse for an evening meal nearby. Wish we discovered Bieriger on our first night - the food is excellent, so ask for directions - you won't regret it!

Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at Lucia and would definitely recommend this hotel and stay again when in Vienna.

My wife and I recently stayed at Hotel Lucia in Vienna for three nights. It is a clean, pleasant, safe and comfortable hotel. The staff were wonderful and helpful. Check-in and check-out was simple and painless. The rooms were a good size, well-appointed, TV with good menu, all bathroom amenities and free wi-fi. Breakfast was substantial and available from 7-10am. Hotel Lucia is situated 3 minutes from the Johnstrasse U3 U-bahn; two stations away from Wien Westbahnhof. Access to the city centre, Schonbrunn Palace and Danube was quick and simple. The only downside we experienced was the lack of a constant wifi signal during the day (probably heavy internet traffic in the area). Nevertheless,we had a refreshing and enjoyable stay at a very good price. Good value for money. Will certainly stay there again

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard or in the back of the hotel are quieter than rooms facing the road...

I stayed for 3 nights this week, visiting from Canada. Very clean and tidy and the room was comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. Good value and I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Only tried one room so I don't know. Perhaps try one NOT facing onto Huetteldorferstrasse.
