“Not too bad....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

One very confused front desk, won't mention any names, he actually was quite comical and amusing, just a bit frazzled. Gave us a crappy room on the first floor upon check-in. Made a big deal about switching......oh, the trouble I was going to cause him, did I have any idea how difficult it is to switch rooms.........only to find out he gave us someone else's room assignment to begin with, finally got "our" assigned room (your last name is on the piece of paper in the little room boxes at the front desk). Request an upper level, where you can keep the windows open all night, because the smell in these old places can be stuffy. Ask for what you want specifically when reserving, and bring a copy of confirmation with you, such as bath tub, etc. Be very clear, maybe even draw or attach a picture of one, as it could be too confusing for some staff as to exactly what a bath tub is.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We stayed for 1 night, arrived 2 hours before check-in, but the room was ready, so we could take a shower and rest. Receptionist was very nice and helpful. Room was clean, as well as the bathroom. There was a bottle of water in room - it was very nice. Room was big, airy and light. Delicious breakfast in quiet dining room was great start of the day. Hotel provides a left-luggage, so we could check-out early in the morning and come back just for the luggage. Hotel is close to Praterstern and it's also just a short way from city centre. The street is really quiet. Drawbacks: Heavy duvet. Hotel answered to my e-mail after 2 days.

Close to Prater metro/train station - less than 5 minutes walk (one or two sexshops on the way, but area around is quiet),
room average size, comfortable beds, towels changed every day even if we did not want it. Good choice for breakfast, including cakes and fresh fruits, very good coffee and hot chocolate ( also available in the evening for like 2 euros) There is also patio where you can have breakfast or just sit and enjoy your coffee in the evening. There is one computer with internet connection and possibility to print boarding passes.

A friend and I stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of July. It's close to the Praterstern rail station, which is easy to get to from the airport. Tip - I took the CAT train from the airport, which gets you to the City Centre (Wien Mitte). You then have to transfer to the local subway network to get you to Praterstern. My friend took the other rail option (S-Bahn, S-7 yellow line) which ended up getting her directly to Praterstern. It costs less but takes longer. However, since it took me a long time to figure out how to get from Wien Mitte to Praterstern, it might be easier and less difficult to just take the S-Bahn.
The hotel is easy to find once you are out of Praterstern station. It doesn't look like much from the outside and the rooms weren't much on the inside, but they are clean and comfortable. As it's an older building, there is no air conditioning (this was common throughout Austria, so it wasn't a big deal to us). The bathroom had been updated fairly recently and was clean.
Our room faced the courtyard which was nice. We could hear people downstairs who were sitting out on the main floor, but this never went on too late and didn't start too early. I think it helps that the patio where you can sit is next to the reception so they don't let things get too loud.
The staff was great - they all spoke pretty decent english. I ended up getting sick and asked for their help on where to find some drugs on a Sunday (another tip - nothing is open on a Sunday!) and the woman behind the desk tried her best, even offering to give me some of her own pills (which were ibuprofen, but it was a nice gesture nonetheless).
Breakfast - decent. A wide selection of teas, coffee, hot chocolate and specialty coffees. They had a bit of cheese and sliced meats, and a good range of breads and yogurt. There was always some form of specialty pastry, namely strudel. No argument there.
I was pleased with this choice of hotel and only realized where its location was in the city after I did the hop-on/off bus tour. It's really close to the Prater, which I wish I had more time to explore.
The one suggestion I would offer - get wifi going and you would really make people like me happy to have to stay in touch with things at home. They have a computer in the main floor to access the internet and I believe that they have a hardwire in the rooms to plug into your laptop. For someone like me with an iPad and iPhone only, this wasn't great for me.

Overall - a good value hotel and would recommend without hesitation.

I spent 3 nights in this small hotel where the receptionists are friendly and helpful, where the rooms are clean, where breakfast is delicious. Adlon is close to the very centre of Vienna, in a quiet street, 4 minutes from the underground.

Nice place, good prices, good standard. Be prepared to park your car on the street with city fares. Very silent place - close to PRATER and center. Each place in Vienna center accessible by walk or metro.
