Interesting place - has a visible baroque interior, which adds taste and color to your Vienna experience. Very convenient in terms of a walking distance to anything and a few affordable eateries nearby (we loved the "Bagels" cafe at the neighboring block, the bagels are better than many New York ones!). The place is OK to spend a couple of...

Just return from Vienna. So incredible experience. This experience has been completed by staying at Pension Franz. The location of this hotel is one of the best (at this price), just 2 min from Rathaus and 4-5 min walking distance from Hofburg. The general atmosphere is a Viennese one, very chic and cozy. The room we stayed, for a family...

We stayed here for 3 nights in September. We were lucky to get a room which had a view of the Votive Church and lots of sunlight during the day. This pension is near the historic centre and also close to Train Station. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel has an old world charm to it, which we...

That really states the mood of the place... shabby, run down, disinterested staff.

The service started off on a bad foot the minute we arrived when the desk clerk didn't offer to wheel my bag down the hall. Yes, that is minor, but when I returned to the desk 15 mins later the clerk informed me that I would only be able to stay 2 nights instead of the 4 nights originally booked...

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.

“If you like to sleep in request to get a room that is away from the breakfast room as this is very busy in the morning. We stayed on the top level and had no noise issues.”
