I liked the room very much: a lot of space, silent, clean, comfortable. Great buffet breakfast with many choices and good quality food. Trams for everywhere behind the corner and walking distance from many restaurants.

This is a traditional style hotel. I wondered why its ordinary rooms got 4* status but that must be the breakfast buffet - cheeses, meats, good fruit salads, muesli, dried fruit, hit food (bacon eggs etc) and very good choice of breads and pastries. No air conditioning. I picked the cheapest room, only 60 euro/night, but because of the street... More

We stayed two years ago, and I liked it so much we came back this year on vacation. With 2 people, we stayed at a higher price point, and found the room to be much larger than a single. The room was a very comfortable size with a queen bed and plenty of space. We had a corner room with... More

I stayed there only for one night during a business trip. The staff at the lobby and in the breakfast room are really top. They provide great service and act very professional. Also the breakfast buffet is definitely on the plus side. However, when it comes to the rooms the hotel shows severe deficits. Long woman hair on the shower... More

I was there for only one night. We had double room with separate beds. Room is small and doesnt have air condition, which was problem for us, if you open the window then is very noisy since the room was facing busy street. Interior of the room is ready to renovate and design looks like in 80's. Bathroom had a... More

The hotel is a great choice if you want to have an excellent location and decent amenities for a relatively low price. The property is within 15-20 min walk to the Opera/Naschmarkt/Belvedere in either direction and is very close both to the tram station and to the Taubstummengasse metro. The area (Wieden, 4.

We had an absolutely wonderful experience at this hotel.

Stayed here 3 night in May. The location is very good, 5 mins walk distance from the State opera. There is a market close to the hotel, so you can buy some drinks or food if needed.

A friend recommended staying here for the reasonable price as well as convenience of central location with very close streetcars and subways. It was not just "quite nice" but figuratively speaking...IT WAS SPECTACULAR in every way imaginable.
