“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Very pleasant reception staff.
We had room 318 which was lovely and quiet, comfy bed, bathroom appeared to have been recently renovated and was spotless.
Breakfast was plentiful and had lots of choice.
The transport system was close by both tram and u-bahn. Easy walk to centre.
We bought combined Sisi ticket and found it great value and all the places very interesting with audio tours.

Room Tip: We requested a quiet room and that is what we got.

I had 2 nights in Rainers at the beginning of June. Very large room, with comfortable bed and good quality linen. Breakfast is very rich, nothing to complain. Dinner and lunch very well prepared. Good food! The service in the restaurant was very good, fast and careful, a little bit slow at the bar in the evening. Wi-Fi excellent! Large parking for the cars. As the hotel is placed in the Favoriten district you might need 45 min to walk to the city center, but you van take a taxi or the buss which has the station in front of the hotel.

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for taking a few minutes to write a feedback about your stay in June.

We are happy to hear, that we were able to make you feel comfortable and you have enjoyed the size and the equipment of our rooms.
Your comment about the Restaurant and Bar service, aswell as the quality of breakfast, lunch and dinner will be shared with the team and is much appreciated.
As you said, the hotel is located in district Favoriten, if you like to walk to the city center it is about 45 minutes, with the public transportation on the other hand just about 15 minutes till you reach the state opera house.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Warm regards,

We had 3 nights here in May as part of a group tour by rail.
Modern hotel with most facilities.Good location near to the tram station serving all of Vienna.
Breakfasts were good but didn't think the dinner was special-the service at dinner was a bit slow but the staff were pleasant enough.
Local small shops available nearby

Dear guest,

thank you for taking the time to share your feedback following your recent stay.

Whilst I am pleased that you seemed to have enjoyed your overall experience, I am of course disappointed that on this occasion the service during dinner, did not meet your expectations.
Please be assured that I have addressed this matter with the relevant departmental manager, who will take the appropriate action.

I would be very happy to welcoming you back to Vienna some time in the near future.

Kind regards,

The price was about 60 eur per night for a modern spacious room with free wi fi, various breakfast, free parking. It takes 15 minutes to get to the center by tram, the stop is 3 min walk from the hotel.

I've spent 3 nights in this hotel and it was really great choice. We bookend all inclusive offer with parking, wi-fi and breakfast included in the price. This offer is worth the money. The hotel deserves its 4 stars, rooms are very clean, modern. The hotel is very close to the subway - just 3 minutes walk. When you go outside the hotel turn right and the station is just few steps away (close to cementary). I reccomend you to buy tickets for public transport in the hotel (we had Vienna card for 3 days). The location is very convenient, you can reach the centre of the City very fast.
(there are also trams).
And breakfast is fantastic!

Room Tip: all the rooms I saw look very similar (the same style)

This was my second visit to Rainers, situated at Gudrunstrasse./Matzleinsdorferplatz. This (the station) has recently become the main railway station (Hauptbahnhof) for Vienna, replacing the old Sud- and West-Bahnhof. Large, comfortable: perhaps a little impersonal (the hotel, not the station!): but it ticks all the boxes for me. The Hauptbahnhof notwithstanding, the quickest way to town (Stephansplatz) is to exit the hotel, cross Gudrunstrasse heading left, and take the 14A bus three stops to Keplerplatz, from where the U1 will drop you at Stephansplatz in 10 minutes.I remain a fervent fan of hotels a little out of the central buzz, especially in Vienna, even more so if it's as quick as this. It's not a hotel that's huge on 'character' or 'tradition' ( how could it be? It's only 4 years old) - but if you think that a hotel is where you sleep in between having fun, then look no further. Friendly staff, very comfortable rooms, nice (if expensive!) bar: hang your hat here: but nightowls beware: the bar tends to shut at midnight, or earlier if there's no-one around.
