“Wonderful memories from the up to the mark hotel!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

We are the young couple and we like to travel a lot everywhere. Moreover, I'm a hotel manager and a travel agent that's why I like to stay in hotels and check them by myself. Planning our trip to Vienne we decided to stay in not expensive, central located and ORIGINAL austrian-vienne hotel- we chose the Schweizerhof hotel. Both of us are sure that it was the best choise! This not big hotel has very nice and warm rooms in original austrian style. Every day you get different chocolate/ sweets on your pillow. All staff give you smiles, good mood and the warmest hospitality from their hearts every day! And the breakfast... we still can't forget it!!! Every day there was something new and different from the day before. The breakfast was very-very varied, fresh, tasty, original austrian and included exotic fruits and berries every day (even it was cold January!!!) I was surprised that this 3-stars hotel offers better service and choise in breakfast than in Hilton's hotels through over the world!
We recommend this hotel very much to everybody and wish excellent experience from Schweizerhof hotel as we had during our wonderful 3-days trip to Vienne!!! Good luck and don't hesitate to choose this hotel!!!

Room Tip: The hotel has 2 types of rooms: modern and antique (original austrian style). The second type costs...

My wife and I were scheduled to spend several nights at this hotel, flying from Zürich to Vienna. Unfortunately, prior to our trip from Zürich, my wife was stricken with a heart attack. I cancelled our reservation SIX days prior to our arrival, only to be advised that a SEVEN day cancellation was the policy of the hotel. I might have been able to meet that requirement, but I was with my wife in an intensive care unit of a hospital in Zürich. My wife's doctors prohibited her from flying; Swiss Air prohibits a cardiac victim from flying for three weeks. This Vienna hotel just takes your money! Terrible customer service in my efforts to resolve this. I am a veteran Trip Advisor reviewer with an even-tempered, if not liberal attitude of such situations. My advice: if you book here, book through a agency with cancellation options.

This Hotel has a lot of potential. It has a great location, friendly and helpful staff the room was ok. If they would take of the black mold on the ceiling, take care of the peeling paint and wallpaper, steam clean the carpets, and get new towels I could rate it higher. This hotel is located next to a few night clubs and bars. There was construction that started at 7am and lasted until 7pm. We could here the conversation in the both rooms on either side of us.

Older hotel just blocks from the heart of Vienna and a short walk to the subway. Also, there's a very convenient airport shuttle pick-up near the subway -- much cheaper than taking a taxi. With nightclubs nearby, be prepared to use earplugs. Breakfast buffet was above-average with plenty of variety...even champaign and chocolate! We spent 3 nights here - while the hotel wasn't necessarily memorable, we were pleased with our stay. many restaurants in a short walking distance.

Breakfast unappetising, food recycled, staff untrained
Otherwise ok for a short stay of 1 to 3 nights. Day and nightstaff hospitable and helpful. Rather noisy from 6:30 to 6 in evening due to building and renovations adjacent to hotel. Some sleazy nightclubs across the way from the hotel entrance

We stayed at Hotel Schweizerhof for 5 nights in June. I was worried when I read some of the other TripAdvisor reviews about the noise and the smallness of the rooms and/or bathroom but we decided to go with it anyway based on Rick Steve's review and the price compared to other Vienna hotels. We were very lucky with our room assignment. It was a corner room (508, I think) and it was huge with windows on two walls and therefore great cross ventelation. Yes, the bathroom is tiny, but we don't travel for the bathroom and it had what was needed (toilet, sink, shower) and was clean so we didn't really care.

There is no air conditioning but we did have fans and, as mentioned above, our room had the cross-ventelation.

We did not find it to be noisy from people leaving the bars late at night but we did find it noisy in the early morning from the nearby construction. You can't blame the hotel for this, but if that is going to be a problem for you then maybe don't stay here until that construction is done.

We found the hotel very convienently located to trams if you didn't want to walk, to the airport bus, to walk to many locations in the city. There were also a number of great restuarants within a couple of blocks (particularly Salzamt right out the door, left at the corner and up the steps).

Imagine wanting to enjoy your European trip, but then you can't sleep at night, so you end up being tired the whole time. People were outside with jackhammers at the crack of dawn every morning. Other noises at night too. Food was decent, though. This place was way too small. Bathrooms are so tiny that you can barely turn around. Decorations were outdated.

The location is absolutely fabulous. Good food and train station is within walking distance. The cathedral is also within walking distance, along with more shopping that you can do in a few days. This is only a good place to stay for a few days. Any longer than that and you'll be tired from all the noise at night and cramped by the lack of spaciousness.

Room Tip: Try to get a larger room or you'll be cramped. Also, GET AWAY FROM WINDOWS IF POSSIBLE, or you...
