K & T Boardinghouse 2 was a great place to stay in Vienna. It is close to the train station, was a very clean and large room with private bath, and the staff was very helpful in giving us tips about the city and making our way around it, upon arrival.

The hotel is very easy to find as the details on the website are easy to understand and they are right next to the underground. We were welcomed very warmly by our host who showed us to our room which was huge. Our host also gave us a map of Vienna and cirlced all of the places to see and how to get to each including tram and bus numbers. Showed us the room and the booklet which outlines all ifo about the hotel including wifi passwords etc.
The room was very large with 2 singles pushed together and a couch, flat screen tv and an ample bathroom. The room was immaculately clean and the sheets were fresh.
The bathroom was a good size for a couple and very clean, although the shower head was at waist height which was difficult.
The location is fantastic as it is close to one of the main shopping streets and a few really nice restaurants nearby.
The main things that were a put down for me was: the actual room we were in. We were in room 1 which was right next to where the buses parked so you could hear buses starting up from 6am outside the window. Also the pillows were terrible, a few pieces of cotton in a case.
Overall I would definitely satay here again. I loved the room and its amenities.
Grreat stay!

Our stay in K&T Boardinghouse 2 was just great! The three of us - me, my brother and my mother (all adults) stayed for 3 days and we are all very satisfied! The most difficult person to satisfy is my mother of course because she is not so young and she is used to feel really comfortable. Well, she has just nice words to say about this place!
The room is very big, even for the three of us, very clean and warm! This last thing was extremely important for us because it was really cold and rainy outside (around 3 degree). You get enough towels, a kettle with tee bags and 3 in 1 coffee for each one of us, free wireless internet which worked perfectly on my mobile phone (or you can use computer in front of the room.
Also it is not ground level, it is high ground so nobody can see you from the street. and about the buss stop which was in front of our window, we really didn't notice it because the windows suppress the noise (and the noise is really not that bad-we kept the window open during one night and the bus didn't woke us.
and of course, the location is amazing! across the street is U3 station, and the place is located in the center of Mariahilferstasse so if you go shopping you can go up and than leave your things in the room and than continue down toward center.
at the and, Tina is rally great, she helped us with everything we asked!

Situated in a perfect area for shoppers and young people, right on the corner of Neaubaugasse and Mariahinfelstrasse (the main shopping street and a more "bohemian" street) ... easy access to restaurants, shops, metro, and one stop away from Museumsquarter... for art lovers.
Id go back again and again. Also the free internet is a big plus, as is the relaxed atmostphere!

We just got back from a great stay in Vienna over the New Year's holiday. We were there for 5 nights and found many interesting things to do.

Staying at K & T Boardinghouse was just perfect for us. We could either walk or take the subway to the central part of the city. The room was clean and of very good size. Tina (the owner) was most helpful with a variety of questions and information. She also arranged for a taxi to pick us up very early on our last moring in Vienna, as we had an early flight to catch.

As a note: they have two locations and the one located on Mariahilfer requires a climb of three floors.

General: I have booked the K&T Boardinghouse quite a while before our trip in December knowing that around Christmas times hotels and other bed-and-breakfast places in the city center would be booked out. (Vienna has excellent Christmas markets which all have a different touch - but you are for sure not the only tourist.)

Pre-trip: Sadly, I got the news 2 days before flying in there that K&T cannot keep the reservation due to water pipe damage. Of course, it made me furious as I would not be able to find for this excellent price the same quality and location of accommodation in Vienna - but the flight was bookd. After some disucssions, Tina helped and organized on a high custom serviced way the first night in a good B&B nearby and for the second night she offered us another room at the other K&T 2 place.

Arrival: The caretaker helped us with where we are and where to go eat. Although, she was quite fast with her explanation, she was open for questions. Additionally, when we had questions we knocked on her door and she was very helpful

Summarized: It is not a hotel with pool and breakfast - but it also does not cost EUR 200 (and this is already cheap for a quality hotel in Vienna). K&T is a privately owned boardinghouse which offers exactly what you need for Vienna: a nice room, a bed, toilette, shower and help if needed. It is close by everything and the price for such accommation. I would regard as the best I have seen. I would go there again.
