“Great value for money and recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Hotel Alpha is located on a quiet street behind the Rathaus building. Very convenient location - a subway station (U2 line - Rathaus) and a tram line is in a couple of minutes walk. But actually most of key attractions can be reached on foot.

The rooms are nice, clean, the personnel is polite and attentive. The breakfast variety is more than decent (although did not change much thru 4 days of our stay). An extra feature - coffee, tea, water and fruits are available 24h in the lobby for free.

Wi-fi access is free in the lobby (but please note that access password is only valid for 30min - after that you need to use a new one - not a major problem but can be annoying).

There are construction works on a nearby street that start in the morning - that did produce some noise but did not disturb a lot overall.

In summary, would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again in future!

Vienna was our first stop on our European adventure and we were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. It was clean, the staff was very nice, and the breakfast was great with lots of options. The all day coffee and tea was also really nice for a afternoon caffeine boost. It was walking distance to the Rathaus, and Metro. We used the Metro constantly to get around so it's close proximity (especially when it was pouring down rain). I took one star off because the shower was SOOOOO tiny. Shaving legs was an impossible task in that bathroom! Overall great experience!

This is a comfortable hotel in a quiet area, within walking distance to many of beautiful Vienna's great sights. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Vienna`s best Christmas market at the Rathaus, which is less than ten minutes away. This hotel is a great choice if you are a solo female who wants to visit the fabulous Christmas market in the evening. The area is very safe.

WiFi is only available in the lobby and not very reliable.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review of our hotel. It is indeed very centrally located near the Rathaus and in close proximity (5 min by foot only) to the underground station U2 Rathaus.
Beginning of June there will start the 'Film Festival 2013' which is also highly recommended to visit. Maybe a motive for your next visit to Vienna.

We would be glad to accommodate you again and remain
with best regards

Perfect location for seeing the sights of Vienna - we are walkers and could get everywhere on foot although trams and the Underground are nearby. Staff could not have been more helpful with recommendations for nearby restaurants (all good) and all requests dealt with promptly and efficiently. Rooms are modern, comfortable and very clean. Breakfast choices were ample and the all day coffee, tea and fruit were a real bonus. Would recommend highly for a city break.

Good Location, nice rooms and excellent breakfast. What else do you wish for? It was not the best hotel ever, but for the price it was good enough. We were travelling with two small kids, and the room (double with extra bed) was comfortable. They have their own parking, which was handy.
