“Clean, large rooms in well-located hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

I stayed here with my partner for 2 days in December 2012. It is a quiet hotel despite being right next to the university with excellent transport links into the main city. The room was large enough and clean although relatively dated in design - the bed was nice and comfy which is the most important thing! I cannot comment on the price as I got it as part of a bundle with event tickets.

The breakfast is all you can eat - it is a continental breakfast rather than a full English, but you can certainly stuff yourself so you don't need to eat the rest of the day. They also do boiled eggs but you need to request them from one of the staff, they do not tell you that they are available. I quite liked the breakfast, the meats and cheese were of decent quality so very edible.

There was nothing spectacular about this hotel, but I would happily stay there again.

I staied in this hotel twice in 2013, one week in January and one in February, both for business reasons. Room are clean and spatious, not so accessorized but comfortable and with a decedent free wi-fi connection.
Unluckily, breakfast is not so good. I like eating sweeties in the morning, but the hotel proposes only a pre-packaged cake, not even very good. Alternatively, one can have some bread and ham. Coffee and tea for free are absolutely low-quality, while you have to pay 1.60€ for something similar to an Espresso.
I staied there twice because it's very close to my office and I'm refunded by my company, but I don't think it will happen again. Something changed during last month. The restaurant room is less clean, tablecloths are no more changed at all and paper placemats are used to cover stains!! Maybe they clean once a week, but on friday I was really upset eating on that tables! I would really expect something better when I spend 76€ per night!

Very convenient, near a tram line and one campus of the University. my room was quiet, reasonably spacious, with sitting area and a useful desk and table -- useful mainly because they were not cluttered with "decorative" knick-knacks, there is actually room to put things down, like papers and bags. The wi-fi is excellent and easy to connect to. Only small inconvenience: the shower, unless hand-held, forces you to stand very close to the drain end of the tub. Breakfast room is pleasant and relaxing, real (non-plastic) dishes and utensils, morning papers available (but only in German), buffet has no eggs but they can be ordered individually.
The staff was friendly and helpful, front desk is manned 24 hours. Pierre is a fun, cool character.

This small hotel is a good choice for an economical stay in Vienna.
The staff was very courteous and helpful. It is a short walk to the tram stop for an easy ride into the heart of the tourist area.
The hotel was clean and the breakfast adequate.
There is a small bar in the lobby attended to by the all-around desk clerk / bar tender.

Traffic there is actually very convenient. Staff are nice people. The room was cosy and cleaning was well-done. It was funny that the nice cleaning lady even arranged our tooth paste and other staff from small to big size order up on the sink. The neighborhood is safe and generally quiet. There was no air-conditioning in the room. The windows need to be open at nights but the passing tram D is very very noisy. But if you come at winter I guess there wouldn't be such problem. Breakfast was OK. No fridge in the room. There is a supermarket at 2 tram stops nearby. (or actually you can walk there within 10 minutes, only because the hot whether we chose not to) Free wifi provides very good connection.

Room Tip: one side is facing the street, could be noisy when TRAM D passes by.
