The hotel was just outside central Vienna. We picked it for the price and the Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Yes. Our triple was basically two singles and a bunk bed. But it is definitely an upgrade from an upscale hostel. First of all, there is a flat screen t.v. in the room. The private bathroom was small but not tiny. Very very clean modern bathroom. Unlike a hostel, there were towels, hand soap, and shampoo. A hair dryer on the wall. I was very happy with the room amenities. I thought the breakfast bar for just under 6 euros was a bit much but given that Vienna has awesome cafes and coffee houses. So we ate there one morning but not the others. The hotel was quiet ay night. Even on a Saturday night. As a family, we were concerned about that. The clientele when we were there were almost all very young twenty-somethings. But there were a few senior and one other family that we saw. For 50 euro/night for the three of us- this was a true deal. However. It is a bit of a walk to the metro. A little too far for younger children. Also. Not any good restaurants in the immediate vicinity. We walked across the bridge to Pizza Riva. There were a lot of places to eat around there. Maybe 1/2 mile away. Overall. Would definitely use this hotel again!

My friends and I went there for just one night. However it was absolutely gorgeous. Check in was very fast and check out was made in 5 seconds. Room and bathroom were very clean. It was perfect and next time we'll definitely go there again!

We got a clean, big room in the roof. The bathroom was very clean, modern and good.
The bad things I found, the room, one wall looked unfinished, you could see the concrete there. Then for 2 persons in our room the room was fine, but if it would be 3 persons, it would be hard to get inside/outside the bed, since the roof is very low.
Also there was no heating, but some sort of airco blowing warm air inside the room.

The breakfast was fine, but u need to pay for it and you need to clean up your own plates which is a bit strange for a hotel.

The area isnt really inside downtown, but its a bit further awa, i think15 min walking and you are in the downtown area with the shopping streets. The area around the metro station is quite dark and not pleasant to walk at night.

I think the staff could be paying more attention to customers since my friend was waiting for someone at the bar, some guy saw it but nobody cared about her waiting there.

Thanks for rating us!
The "unfinished" wall is kind of decoration - you will also find "unfinished" walls in the lobby etc, of course this is a matter of taste. also the self service is standard, so we can provide the small price for the big breakfast buffet.
Anyway, we hope you had a few nice days in vienna :)

Many greetings, the M-Tean

This is a very clean and modern hotel. Rooms are big and bathroom is clean and nice. Breakfast is average with extra cost. Friendly staff. Good value for money. The city centre is 3 km. The bus stop is 100 mt. and the nearest metro,Schottenring, is 700 mt away. I would choose this hotel again for the next time.

What is good?
Good location. Excellent staff on reception, very young and polite. And very big smile.
Room and bathroom were clean.
Very modern and beautiful hotel.

What is not good?
No parking. Actually have, but you must make reservation early. And little bit expensive.
Room is small, without balcony, bunk beds. Internet is not so good. Breakfast is not varied and large crowd on breakfast. With many young people in pajamas! :)
Do I will recommend it? Yes for young people. This is perfect place for young people with open mind, people who are not conformist.
Family with kids? Only if they love this "adventure".
Do I will go again? Probably yes, actually this is very interesting place :)

Hi!

Wow, thank you for this interesting review :) Parking in Vienna is in general a problem. Parking in our hotel is much cheaper and easier than parking on the street, because of short term parking. Due to the fact, that there are just 16 parking places for around 480 beds, it's alsways necessary to reserve it.

Anyway, we are happy that you had an "adventurous" and nice stay here :)
See you next time!

Greetings form Vienna, you M-Team
