just back from 4 nights at this great hotel. highly recommend it for location,comfort and staff. The staff are so pleasant and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them. Room 310 is a fair size, looks onto the courtyard therefore very quiet and has air conditioning. The hotel is spotless. It really is great value for money.

Room Tip: always look on line for special deals

I only stayed one night but felt compelled to write a review as the concierge/receptionist who was on duty was fantastic. Orange juice on arrival and couldn't gave been more helpful or friendly. He is an asset to that hotel.

I paid for a basic single room, as I was travelling alone and only there for a couple of days. The room was very clean, with a large pristine bathroom. From the moment I arrived, the staff were typically Viennese in their courtesy and politeness.

The hotel is located right in the centre of the city and I would highly recommend renting a bike from the bike rental shop on the other side of the Danube from the hotel.

Breakfasts were basic, but very tasty with a good selection of food and very helpful staff attending to your every need.

Greeted with mimosa. At first glance the room was small and bed looked uncomfortable, but not true. Bed was very comfy and room size was really not a problem was we were not in room that much. Had a great tub/shower. The wifi worked perfectly and breakfast had it all, even champagne. Yes, would stay again. Great location.

We stayed here for three nights with our three children. We stayed in a two-room suite (one double one twin) with an extra sofa bed in the double room for our youngest child (7). It was very comfortable, with good beds, although the sofa bed would not have been sufficient for an older child. Getting five in one set of rooms made it very good value.

The breakfast was very good with a decent range of hot and cold food which had something for everyone.

The location is excellent, being around 10-15 minute walk at most from Stephansplatz. It is two minutes from Schwedenplatz where you can get a tram or u-bahn direct to pretty much everywhere (e.g. Schonbrunn, Prater, Museumsquartier etc). When you first arrive the hotel itself and the immediate shops on either side look a little dowdy, but don't be put off as when you get inside it is very comfortable.

There is no restaurant at the hotel, but you can eat at the hotel just up the road and charge it to your bill. And if you turn right out of the hotel (rather than left towards central Vienna) and walk for five minutes you come to a little square on the opposite side of the road that has three nice looking restaurants in it, one vegetarian, one mainly a wine-bar, and one selling a mixture of Austrian and Italian influenced food, which saves going into town if you don't want to.

This isn't the most amazing hotel we've ever stayed at, and having been here I'm surprised at how gushing some of the reviews are. But overall we found this hotel very convenient and comfortable and would stay here again if we visited Vienna again. It is in particular very good value and convenient if you want to be together with two or three children.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise ask for a room away from the main road (Taborstrasse), especially in w...

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days and I am completely satisfied with this hotel, comparing to 5 star hotels and the price that you have to pay, this hotel gives satisfying services. Easy access to all public transportations, and being close to the center is a great plus point. Services like cleaning and responding to your request were well done. The breakfast could be better but it was just enough to enjoy. The only negative point I can mention is that you could hear a weak sound from the street in the night which can be disturbing for sensitive people, though it was ok for me because it gave me the feeling of a living town and I could sleep. And the other was that there were no hair conditioner, toothpaste and toothbrush, and no flip flop to wear! Which was surprising for me and troubled me a lot! I don't know if it is the matter of being 4 star or the style of hotels in vienna, but I didn't expect it.
Anyway, all in all, good enough to think about staying there again if I will be back to vienna oneday, and to suggest it to other friends!
