“It's just a business”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Some hotels make you feel like home, other try to do so, this one is HOTEL and nothing more, with no intention to change a bit of it.

The hotel has everything you need in your city trip. It's not far from the the city-center, even closer to the metro-station, the staff speaks good English, the quite good breakfast is being served by reasanable price, the building of the hotel new and accurate.

Rooms are big and the furniture is comfortable. Though we had some difficulties as there was no safe in the room...

Everything is in order as I've said. But some unexplainable lack of the atmosphere of hospitality does not allow me to put an Excellent mark to the hotel... On our check-out day chamber-maid tryed to enter the room tree times before we have left, like they could not wait till we leave...

Hello VasilyMalygin ,

thank you very much for your review.

We are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay at MEININGER Hotel Wien Sissi.

We feel very sorry that the chamber-maid tried to come into your room before you have left the room. This is not our standard.

Nice hotel close to city center. Room was big enough. Very friendly and helpful staff at the reception desk. Clean. Quiet area. Wi-Fi very good. If you arrive by car, parking at the hotel isn't easy- too small and around you need short time parking ticket which you have to renew every 2 hours - ridiculous.

New, modern, clean, fresh hotel situated just 2 blocks away from Underground station Schnottering, or a 20 minutes walk to Rathaus. We enjoyed our stay very much although we skipped breakfast since we had read critics that for 5.90/person/day it wasn't that good. Just round the corner there's Billa supermarket where you can buy whatever you want for breakfast. The room doesn't have a fridge but there's a very nice kitchen just next to the breakfast room where you can store whatever you want. Definitely worthed the money we gave, just 50€/night, we strongly recommend it!

The hotel rooms are new, clean and not too small. The hotel is in walking distance to the most sightseeing points. the staff is friendly. We did not have any breakfast, but the buffet did not look that nice.

here is an ordinary hotel near to the metro station. you can reach the historical city center with one train.
the hotel was clean and the breakfast was enough satisfactory.
But we stayed in double size bedroom, but there was no double size blanket, we had to use two single size blankets.
there was no water, kettle(water boiler) and complimentary things in the room and no slippers.

Negatives: breakfast was very poor, every day the same, no eggs, only one sort of breakfast rolls, insufficient service in the breakfast room. The room amenity was very ... moderate,
Positives: but it war clean, the hotel is new and modern. Not expensive and is located near by U-Station. In 10 min. you are in the city.
