“Good value, nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

I was rather pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff was very nice--I had to drop my bag off earlier than expected and leave earlier than they normally did check-out, and they were very accommodating about both aspects and were even concerned about me being able to take some of the breakfast with me when I left the next morning. My room, furthermore, was great--very big, very comfortable, and clean and stylish. Frankly, this was somewhat of a surprise because the common areas of the hotel were almost deceptively run-down. I was quite nervous about what the quality of the room would be like because the elevator, the hallways, and the reception all showed scuff marks and other signs of wear, but the room might as well have been in a 4 or 5 star hotel, it was so nice.
As far as the location is concerned, there are pros and cons. The pro is that there's a bus stop nearby and the Schonbrunn metro station is a 5-10 minute walk away. Schonbrunn Palace is another 5 minutes from there. Personally, I liked this because having been to Vienna several times, I can definitely say Schonbrunn is my favorite place to visit, and you could spend a lot of time there. The cons are that despite the proximity to Schonbrunn, it's not in a typical "touristy" area of town, so if you're coming to Vienna for that long-awaited vacation, it may not be your place. Also, for the single girls, you do pass a sex store on the way from the Schonbrunn metro station to the hotel. If this is something that makes you wary, be aware. The area still felt safe to me, but I could not swear on it because I was not out really late at night, since I make a point to avoid doing that when traveling.
Overall, I think it is a good hotel and I had a pleasant stay. I would recommend it, especially if traveling on a budget. The price is excellent for Vienna.

The hotel is very convinient located - in front of the hotel there is a bus stop - 57A and on the back side is the metro station - just 7 minutes to the city center, Karlskirche! Modern and spacios rooms with a brand new furniture.
I saw some negative opinions about the breakfast wich I find really strange. I think the breakfast is very rich - a big choice of meat, cheese, vegetables, jogurt, eggs, differents kinds of hot breat and croissants...and many other things
And a perfect Wi-Fi internet connection in the rooms.

It a short walk from the Schönbrunn station.

Hotel was clean. For the price we pay, the room was huge. The bathroom was very big as well. The only gripe I have of the bathroom was that the water took a long time to flow into the drain hole so I felt like I was showering in a ankle deep pool of water. Also, the curtains were really too thin to shield the morning sunlight as reviewed by past guests.

Breakfast was adequate for a quick bite before checking out the city.

On our last night we returned late from a performance and grabbed a pizza and a pasta from a takeout on the right side of the hotel. Portions were huge so can give the takeout a try if there's no other dining options still opened late.

This hotel is clean, well furnished with king size beds and fabulous walk in showers. The rooms are a good size with comfortable beds. The hotel is an easy walking distance from the nearest tube station and an easy 15 minute journey into the very picturesque and beautiful city centre. There was even a live outdoor screening of a Verdi opera at the side of the world famous Vienna Opera House which was free to anyone to watch!
The price included a very pleasant breakfast including fresh fruit, breads, meats, cheeses, cereal, eggs, yoghurts and pastries as well as juices, coffee and tea.
The only thing I can think of which would improve the rooms is tea/coffee facilities and an iron and ironing board but these are minor points. A VERY pleasant stay which I would highly recommend.

We found the hotel to be perfect: comfortable, clean, modern. The only cons: the bathroom door didn't close properly...

However, on the whole I agree with all the positive reviews and would definitely go there again!

The directions given on the hotel website made it easy for us to arrive. Location of the hotel was quite central and 4 minutes by walk to the nearest metro u-bahn station that takes you to the centre. The service at the hotel was super and a minor problem of misunderstanding with the hotel reservation was sorted out in the best way towards theclient with made our stay really remember. We had problems with parking because the hotel has no own parking.
