“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2008

I booked a triple room with shower/toilet from the hotel`s webpage. I was a bit concerned because every hotel tries to put on their website the nicest photos, but in the end It turned out to be quite as I expected.
The hotel is near Margaretengurtel metro station and close to the famous Mariahilfer street, this gave us the possibility of arriving very quickly to the center of the city.
The hotel staff are very friendly. What I liked is that they have a small terrace where you can drink your coffee in the morning(only if you want to).
The breakfast was ok, not much of a variety but more than enough. The usual cereals, bread, cheese, ham, coffee, fruit juice.
Overall, I had a pleasant stay at Cryston Hotel and if I ever go to Vienna, I will return here.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2007

i'm a regular customer of hotel cryston in vienna since the late 1980s. hotel is extremely clean, family run, offering a wonderful and plentiful buffet breakfast, rooms are large enough as bathrooms are. hotel is NOT central, however perfectly linked by U4 subway to the center. it only takes 5 min to reach the opera house and the ring from the front-facing station. hotel is also halfway between center and schoenbrunn palace (around 10min journey).

UPS: perfectly managed, very clean, confortable rooms, lift, great breakfast, TV, reasonable rates, soundproof rooms, few minutes subway link to central vienna.

DOWNS: some kitsch sissi-austrian-fairytale décor, probably unavoidable in vienna... some retro 1970s-80s remains of furniture. unwalkable distance to central vienna. uninspiring neighborhood.

  • Liked — clean, retro-confortable, great breakfast, well managed, good subway connection to center
  • Disliked — some kitsch décor, unwalkable distance to the center, uninspiring neighborhood
  • Stayed November 2006, traveled as a couple
