“Great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

We stayed here for 5 nights in January! The location of the hotel is a great advantage! 3 minutes walking from the station! The reception were excellent! All of them spoke English fluently, very helpful and kind! The room was very good, spacious enough! Regarding the cost of the breakfast it is 5.90 per person/per day! Don't forget to buy Vienna Card for 19.90 euros per person it includes 72 hours transportation and various discounts for museums, shops, restaurants etc! The only thing that in our opinion need a bit improvement is the housekeeping! Overall, a great value for money!

Good location, metro nearby, 20-25 min walking to Prater district. Modest, but modern rooms. Friendly and helpful. Breakfast quite skimpy, would rather not recommend. Overall -very good value for money.

Staff was not very friendly...room was quiet and very clean, but light in the room was inadequate. This made the room VERY depressing at night and this is a serious dinadequateisadvantage. The beds and pillows were uncomfortable and there was no fridge in the room. Free WiFi but very poor signal...

Hello Milka D

Thank you for your review.

We are aware of the momentarily poor wifi signal, and have made it a top priority. The issue with the lightning is also on the list.
I am sad to hear that you had a bad experience with our staff, they have in previously rewies quite often been mentioned as beeing very friendly.

For younger children we have babybeds, in case that is needed. Just ask at the reception.

Your Meininger team.

Quiet and clean. The bed is confortable. The breakfast is open buffet and various. The hotel is near the subway in a nice neighbourhood and near the city center. Very close is a Billa if you want to buy food or water at a normal price considering that Vienna is a bit expensive.

My wife and I booked this hotel with the objective of having a reasonably priced place to stay for several nights to recover from jet lag before continuing our travels in Europe. Upon check in we were actually quite surprised with the overall quality and nice location of this hotel considering the rate. I really can't think of anything that disapointed us about this property. As long as you go into this hotel with realistic expectations that it is a budget hotel and aren't expecting the moon you will probably be satisfied withn your stay. Lots of good restaurants are within easy walking distance, as well as St. Stephans cathedral and Mariahilferstrasse (shopping district). Lastly I want to recognize the front desk staff who were friendly, professional, and very helpful with any enquiries.

Very clean hotel in a quite side street near all the action in Vienna. 15 minute walk to St. Stephens cathedral and lots of places to eat nearby. Nice hostel style kitchen a lounge area downstairs we actually took advantage of. Billa grocery store right around the corner makes cooking in the well appointed community kitchen an easy and inexpensive option. Rooms are very clean, though lighting is an issue. Biggest complaint is the burdensome Wifi login scheme (unique code for each device that must be re input daily) and how ungodly slow the Wifi is. Other than that a fantastic hotel value

Travelling as a family of four (with teenagers) we found this hotel is located in a very quiet area, 5 minutes to U-Bahn (metro), Schottenring station- be careful: the right exit to the hotel is only from the U2 line, exit Herminengasse, otherwise you will exit on the other side of the river (double distance to the hotel). The city center is only 10 minutes with metro.
Staff was friendly and our room was quiet, large, clean, but light in the room was inadequate. This made the room depressing at night and this is a serious disadvantage. Moreover, two shades on the windows were broken. The beds and pillows were uncomfortable and there was no fridge in the room. Free WiFi and quiet in the room are advantages, but honestly I would not stay there again.
