My husband and I will be spending 3 nights in Vienna while on a 3 week trip to Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We are strongly considering the Renaissance Wien because parking is included in our rate and because it is air conditioned. We know that it is cookie cutter "could be anywhere in the world". This is our only hotel that is not fairy tale precious. With the subway directly across the street, we are not terribly concerned about the distance. Our concern is not knowing what kind of neighborhood the hotel is in and how safe the tube is from this location. Is the neighborhood safe?...is it an office community, and basically empty at night?...is it residential?...is the area considered "seedy"?...should we be concerned about riding the tube on that particular route? We will be doing the touristy things. If anyone is familiar with this area, we would greatly appreciate any information you could share.
