“Best for families with kids, NOT couples.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

This hotel is best suited for families with children, not couples. Although our room was large my GF and I got two separate beds and got to experience what it's like to be Amish for a night. Room has no AC, which was pretty bad as we were there on one of the hottest days of they year. WiFi only works on the first floor which was quite inconvenient since based on their information we were expecting to have it in the room. That said the breakfast was large and plentiful, buffet style (to feed the masses of the kids that stay here:).

Kolpinghaus it is close to the subway station Meidling Hauptrasse (only one station to Schonbrunn Palace). The prices are quite low, the staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. It's a good place also for student groups.

I think it's more for students. Very good placement though - good location, near Meidlinger Bahnhof - underground and railway station.
good price and rooms are simple. no parking available.

Pros:
Pleasant courtyard, a good reading space.
Near Wien Meidling station. I wanted to stay close to it since I had an early train.

Cons:
No wifi, and their one computer charges for use.
Aside from Wien Meidling, not close to much else.

I barely slept since one of the room-mates was a loud snorer, but I guess that's just a risk you take when you share a room.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2008

Very clean, but can be horribly noisy during the night, if the neighbors pour too much alcohol in themselves.... otherwise, quiet enough, there is not much traffic around it.

A good breakfast in the morning (included) can help you start a good day of exploring the beautiful town. Very close to bus/metro stations; just a few stops away from the centre, in walking range to Sconbrunn Castle and Zoo.

A minus for some: no TV set in the room; so what?

Just modem internet access, in the lobby (so I heard, NOT VERIFIED!), for 6 EUR/hour. Better search for a public hot spot!

  • Liked — Nothing in particular.....
  • Disliked — Noisy neighbors and lack of attitude against them from the staff.
