This Courtyard is brand new. We stayed here twice within a week, and got to stayed in two different room. Both were special room with king size bed facing the courtyard/private apartments on the rear.
I like it that everything is new and very clean. The first room we stayed came with a shower, and the second one came with a tub. I don't like the tub very much because it came with a glass panel that does not seal properly at the bottom against the tub. So, after taking shower, the floor of the bathroom were all wet. It took a couple of days before we figured out a workaround, that is to slightly turn the glass panel inside the tub, which however reduce the space to move.
There are plenty of outlets in the room but all, except one in the bathroom are European style at 240V. The outlet turns off if the room keycard is not left into the slot near the door. So we can't really leave anything charging when we leave the room.
The wireless internet in our first room was quite bad, but the access point was right outside our 2nd room. However, I think the access points are weak, I see many access points in the hall way, so not sure why it was so bad in our first one. We got our internet for free since my wife is platinum member. Otherwise we would not have paid for it. For those worried about internet access, get yourself an unlocked gsm cell phone, and get a Lebara sim card from the Call Shop right outside the Ost station. It costs 20 Euro including 10 Euro credit for voice and 500GB of data. You can then tether it to allow your notebook or other devices to share the bandwidth, and you can have internet even outside of your hotel too. I got very good 4G signal in both of the rooms using my phone.
The staffs are the front desks are very friendly and speak perfect English.
The breakfast is quite nice. According to my wife, it's better than any Marriott's breakfast she has stayed in the US. At least we did not get bored eating there 6 times.
The location is quite good. There is a bus and tram station within 30 meters, right outside Motel One next door. Tram #19 takes you to the National Theater, through the outside of OST. There is also a supermarket Lidl around the corner after Motel One. You can get drinking water there for 50cents a big bottle. However, we prefer to go to the one next to the station because it's bigger, and more of their staffs speaks English. There is also big Sixt rental within 10 minutes walk on Eiensteinstrasse. We got our rental car there. It is possible to park your car outside the hotel for 10-15 minutes if you need to pick up or drop of. No body cares.
