3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

It is a hotel/hostel for the youth, so there were many young people among guests. At the time we stayed there, the next building was under construction so it was rather noisy starting from 7 a.m. It wasn't a problem for us for we got us early and went to a walk. The hotel is close to UBahn station but didn't use it and it took us 15-20 minutes at a walking pace to get to the centre. The room was rather small for 4 persons and not homely at all. The furnishing is modern, functional. The room is clean and quite ok for 2 nights. But if we would come to Vien again, I wouldn't stay there..

Everything was decent. The room was clean and modern. The room was on the street side and sometimes it could get noisy. Only one of the two windows could be opened which was weird. Wifi is only available for free in the lobby. You have to pay to get it in your room. There is nobody chilling at the bar and if you are looking for a place to meet people, I suggest you find a real hostel. The staff was okay and there was often only one person to take care of the hotel. It was very useful to have access to a washing machine and a dryer, however what nobody tells you is that you have to pay 5 euros to use them. Also, the hotel is very close to the Tarborstr. Ubahn station. Overall, a good experience. I would go back, since on Vienna standards, this hotel is not very expensive.

This was one of the hotels we stayed at in Austria. Everything was quite decent. Helpful staff at the reception, clean rooms ... Rates were OK. Not cheap but it was on the edge of a medium-comfy budget trip. Its close (5 mins walk) to Taborstrasse UBahn giving good access to the Innere Stadt. We had a nice room on the 5th Floor. The room was quite good apart from some of the furnishing and decor which was not distasteful... but drew words such as weird and a bit creepy. Not very intrusive to the experience though ...

Major building work at back of the building no aircon and windows didnt open in room the handles had been taken off one to make sure you couldnt open it the other one had a note to say it could only be opened a little at the top No one at desk when we arrived or left. Waited 10-15 mins each time. Rude checkin girl who obviously doesn't like her job. Request for a corkscrew met disdain. Go somewhere else. I will.

I would call this a hybrid hostel/hotel outside the centre of Vienna. At €50 a night we had a top floor attic room with a private bathroom. The room was a little on the small side, but fine for only two nights. On the ground floor there is a bar, and communal kitchen with a washer and dryer which is handy of you have been travelling for a little while. There is a bar and seating areas where you can use the free wi-fi or lounge about. Good clean affordable accommodation in an expensive city. It is a 15-20 min walk into the centre of the city, and about 10min to the nearest main metro station.

Sissi Meininger Hotel is a very nice hotel, the location is in a quiet part of wien having the metro station only 5-7 minutes walking distance.The metro can take you anywhere in the city within minutes .The hotel was chosen for me by somebody else from Wien and I Think it was a very good choice. I travelled with friends for a conference meeting.I stayed there alone in a double room but together in the hotel with many other young people also who travelled for the same conference and I guess that probably is mostly a young people hotel. The 3 stars that has is all worth it, the room is very clean, the furniture and decor is new , the bathroom also very modern. For a double room it has enough space for everything. I didn't have breakfast included so I can't give any opinion for that. They have a brand new elevator so it's not difficult to have luggage. The only important thing for me is that I didn't have free wi fi in the room only if I paid. The rest is very good and the value for money is ok for this hotel. I would stat there again.
