“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Very fun place to stay! You get to go through a few doors before you get to your very modern and sleek room. They have good wifi and breakfast is included. The ladies at the front desk very very helpful. You can enjoy the bells tolling during the day but you won't be kept up at night. Very relaxing atmosphere. The breakfast buffet is lacking sausages but don't let that stop you. Enjoy!

The room at the benediktushaus is simple, the breakfast is adequate, but the location is superb if you want to be right in the historic old vienna without being swarmed by tourist. You practicaly can walk to everything.

Highly recommended.

I can only underscore what others have already said: the Benediktushaus is simple but comfortable and very quiet. I got the one room that does not face the inner courtyard but the Freyung and even then it wasn't loud, even with the window open. Even though there is no warm food (eggs may be ordered in advance), the breakfast buffet is substantial and healthy (which also means nothing sweet, no cakes or pastries). For location, quality and cost effectiveness, there can be no better deal in Vienna.

March 2012. This place has great breakfasts and comfortable beds.
This is not a place for luxury and/or thrill seekers but it is well located. You are so close to the centre of the city, restaurants, cafes, shops and yet it is still quiet.
The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and good serviceable furniture including a large desk. Tea and coffee making facilities provided, with a small amount of supplies. The heated towel rails are great for cold mornings and for drying clothes. the bed and pillow were good, the room nice and cosy. It is quiet and allows reflective time. The desk staff were mainly very helpful.
There are a few steps once inside the entry door, then you can take a lift or walk up to reception.
Breakfast is served buffet style. There is a truly great assortment of cheeses, butters, pates, sliced meats, breads, rolls, cereals, fruit, jams, honey and tea and coffee. No hot food, but honestly, I had the BEST breakfasts here.
There are no tv or radios in the room, but there is Wifi. If you are relying on this, make sure you are not on the same floor as reception.
For me, this was a great choice.

At 99euros a double for bed and breakfast, this is a bargain in the Inner Stadt. Great location within 10 minutes walk of most sights and very close to subway and trams. Provides our small traveling group with exactly what we need and no more -- free wifi, gathering space, and adequate breakfast (I was expecting something homemade or modestly better from others' descriptions but it was ample enough). The registration desk is open only limited hours, and this has the potential to pose some difficulties, but didn't bother us. Very interesting location as part of an abbey complex with a beautiful church, nice museum and gift shop, and what I learned is the most highly regarded private school in Austria.

Room Tip: website changed from time I booked to our arrival so I didn't realize that some rooms had been...

Close to downtown Vienna. Situated in an old monastery. Atmosphere is churchlike - very peaceful, very quiet. This is reflected by the spartan interiors of the room. No fridge or minibar but complimentary coffee/tea. Spacious closet and drawers. Lockable drawer for valuables. Breakfast included. Buffet of breads, cheeses, cold meats and olives, cereals, yoghurt, jams, pâté, apples, fruit salad and juices as well as coffee and tea. Absolutely delightful and very different to the run of the mill hotels usually found in large cities. Excellent value. Will definitely stay here again.

The Benediktushaus is part of a functioning Benedictine Monastery and comes with all of the peacefulness of a religious retreat. It is wonderfully located in the center of the city and easy to reach by a 10 minute walk from the metro (U3 line, Herrengasse). The rooms are somewhat spartan and the reception is not manned 24 hours, but for the price it is a great value.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet - ask for a double bed even if you have booked a double room.
