“Huge Room and Beautiful View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

The room size at this hotel is very impressive even by American standard. Maybe it's because the location is 15 minutes away from the city center. They do provide free shuttle services between this hotel and another Hilton at the city center, which is within walking distance to all tourist attractions. So if you don't mind spending a little time on the transportation, you get a lot more room and beautiful view by staying at this hotel.

This is an excellent choice if you are looking for a hotel on the Danube River and don't want the noise of the city. At most, it's about a 15-minute U-Bahn ride into center city (even with a transfer), but it's worth it to have some peace and quiet.
My family arrived around 10 a.m. after an overnight flight, and both of our rooms were available immediately. I am a Diamond Member, so we got room upgrades, complimentary welcome wine and fruit in our rooms, and Executive Lounge Access. Plus, we had rooms facing the Danube River - what a beautiful view!
The staff did everything to make us feel welcome. And the Lounge was a nice treat during the day when we needed to rest a little. I highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Danube River.

From the outside, the hotel looked quite decent. Infact, everything seemed to be just right until you try to turn the air conditioning on. No air and even the common areas in the hotel was warm. We were with a tour group and a lot of them complained of the same thing. In addition to that, Internet is not free. They charge you per device, which was really a bore. Luckily, there were a lot of hot spots throughout Vienna .

Nice place to stay, 5 min walk to the train station. The train system is very easy - a train every 4 mins. Not the best location as you really have to catch the train to get anywhere. The rooms were very nice, pretty big too and good air-conditioning. Reception doesnt have the best knowledge of the surrounding area amenities

I always trust Hilton and wasn't disappointed with this hotel. The views are lovely but it is quite a way from the city center. There is an U Bann station within easy walking distance and traveling by the underground was very easy.

Stayed at both the Vienna Hilton Danube and Vienna Hilton on business the first week of October for two days each. As I stayed at both Hilton hotels, wish to share impressions of both. Booked into the Hilton Vienna Danube as their December Sale prices were excellent. Also booked into Vienna Hilton as it had good prices early in the year as my meeting locations changed during the week. With respect to location, the Vienna Hilton Danube is located outside of the city center on the Danube near to the Stadion U2 station; there are some small markets and a large shopping center nearby, but not restaurants. The access to the Metro is a short and circuitous walk (not pleasant if it is raining). The Vienna Hilton is locate in the city next to the LandstaBe Metro (U3, U 4, and from the airport, the S7). The access to the Metro is across the street and there are many shops and eating places nearby. At the Vienna Hilton Danube, my room overlooked the Danube and was pleasantly large, with two queen size beds, and with an equally spacious bathroom. Interestingly, the bathroom amenities were the smaller varieties . The complementary gift was a bottle of wine! The Executive Lounge was quite spacious and occupied the whole 8th floor of the hotel - with a great view of the boat traffic on the Danube. The hot evening nosh in the Lounge was disappointing, more like that offered in many US Hiltons, with an emphasis on re-heated and fried hors d'oeuvres; it was disappointing if you are not into high-fat foods (specially given the dirth of local restaurants). The breakfast was pleasant, but strangely I as told upon check-in, that I was not entitled to use the breakfast restaurant (contrary to most Hilton in Europe). In contrast, though an HH member, the room I received at the Hilton Vienna was quite small, had two single beds pushed together, and the bathroom was cramped. The welcome gift was some wafers. However, I have to admit that the evening food in the Executive Lounge was quite compelling. The chef obviously fussed and offered some interesting offerings. Kudos to this chef! The bathroom amenities were the large size shampoos, etc. Upon check-in I was invited to have breakfast at either the Executive Lounge or the breakfast restaurant. Notwithstanding both experiences were pleasant and I’d recommend either, depending on what your needs are.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Danube.
