“Excellent price no-frills option, but far from the center of things”
Reviewed October 25, 2010

I stayed at Vienna Austria Trend Lassalle Hotel for several days in October 2010.
I found an excellent low price online, reflecting the fact that the hotel is situated far outside the main tourist areas of the city, in a mixed area of working-class apartments and recently-constructed business offices just a block from the Danube. However, the metro entrance is about an 8-minute walk away (a bus also goes to the metro entrance); and the metro line is a straight shot down to Schwedenplatz and Stephansplatz.

Pros:
- I am pretty sure the clerk gave me an upgrade from the standard rooms to a business room (top floor, filled with sunlight) when I checked in -- but she didn’t mention that she had done so.

- in-room internet access included in the room rate (although website was confusing on this point; I asked the desk staff twice on different days about internet access and was told that standard rooms have free wired access while business rooms have free wireless access; although I paid for a standard room, I believe I was on a business floor, and I only had free wireless access -- I tried the wired connection but couldn’t get any signal); note that free internet access seems to be unusual for Vienna hotels

- very clean room

- large bed

- smooth, fast check in and check out


Cons:
- no ventilation! -- it was a non-smoking room, but cigarette smoke filtered into the room during the night; the only options were to open the windows and/or turn on the desk fan provided in the room (I suspect this room would be unbearable during the hot summer months)

- inadequate soundproofing; I could distinctly hear my neighbor’s snores unless I turned on the fan

- minibar refrigerator did not work -- temperatures in the minibar were just barely lower than room temperature (I requested a room change because of this but was told that the minibars in the other rooms were also like this and that I could ask the bartender to hold my items in the bar’s refrigerator if necessary)

- safe did not seem to work

- upholstery on the chairs was looking a bit worn, although the carpet seemed much newer

- fluorescent lighting in the bathroom was too dim for a good shave

- no fitness room (desk clerk was able to suggest a fitness center some distance away for 15+ euros access, but I found a less-expensive alternative on my own)

- no iron/ironing board in room (a widespread problem in Vienna), although there was a trouser press (which I didn’t attempt to use)

- although the bed was large, the duvet was only single-sized and there was only a single, very thin and uncomfortable pillow (basically negating most of the benefits of having a large bed)


Tips:

- large supermarket, also a nearby pharmacy, just about a block away, en route to the metro entrance

- very tasty, fairly inexpensive (for Vienna) low-key Indian-style food about a block away -- had two nice lunches there

- beautiful, apparently fairly recently-constructed cathedral about a 5-minute walk away, north of the metro entrance, just off the Danube (I didn’t see any mention on this cathedral in the tourist books)


Would probably stay at this hotel again if hotels closer to the center were heavily booked with accordingly higher prices. However, do not expect any luxuries at this hotel.

Yes, the first thing eveyone's reviews say is that's it not in the centre of town. Well, you knew it when you booked it. And what were you expecting at these prices?

So - it's not in the centre of town. It's a brisk walk to Vorgartenstraße on the No.1 underground line (about 250-300m) and 3 stops from there to the city centre. The rooms are plush and spacious. An open window will give you a breath of fresh suburban air, but you'll hear high heels on the pavement - the area is fairly quiet even in the middle of the afternoon - more so at night, but the hotel is nice and the amenities decent. There's wifi and a terminal to access the internet for all us backpapers who rarely travel with laptops.

The lobby and the rooms are an upscale size and standard and the staff unobtrusive.

Great hotel, clean and very well priced if you book in advance. Not centrally located but not far either - about 5min drive (no traffic) or 15min by public transport.
Room was large and comfortable.
Check out was slow but maybe, I chose the wrong moment.
Make sure you ask for a room far away from the lifts.
In overall good value for money.

This is a nice hotel in the upcoming exhibition part of Vienna (leopoldstadt). It is clean, efficient and quiet.
One problem is that there is NOTHING close to the hotel as far as resturants etc are concerned. There is a huge supermarket close by but otherwie youhave to go into town for a meal.
Fo our puposes ie prolonged weekend in Vienna (where we both speak German) we found the hotel more than adequate.

This hotel is a bit further from the centre, near Vorgartenstrasse metro station and also not that far from Prater. It is convenient for the ones who travel to the business centers nearby. The hotel is simple but offers nice breakfast and good free wi-fi. The rooms facing the street can be a bit noisier in the morning. The price is reasonable.

A budget hotel, booked via a tourist operator. Clean and spacious, although old fashioned. Not close to the city centre, but the area is quiet, calm, perfect for a leisurely walk if you have time to spare. Not too many amenities, breakfast not very good, but I can't complain considering the price you can get.

Stayed at the hotel in May for 3 nights.
Hotel is close to Prater,away from the bustling city.It takes 15 min to reach the hotel from Main Train stn.
Hotel is clean with OK staff.Had asked for an early check in but still had to wait as the room was not yet made up.
Good hotel for the price as vienna hotels are a bit expensive.Night time you can visit the Prater Night Park,which is good.
