“great stay, comfortable place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

We stayed at the Hilton Vienna Danube for one week and our room was located on the 5th floor facing the Danube. On our recent European trip, we traveled from place to place by train and our goal was to select a hotel within walking distance of the train station. Hilton was the only hotel where we had to use public transportation in order to get to check in. It took us two metro trains to get from the train station to the Stadion metro stop, and from there we walked three long blocks to get to the Hilton Danube. The Stadion Station metro stop is located next to a shopping center that has bars, restaurants, and various stores including a supermarket; neat place to visit and shop.

Hilton Danube is located in a residential area consisting mainly of high rise apartment/condos buildings; and most of these buildings are surrounded by green space: parks, gardens, what have you; coupled with Vienna’s efficient public transportation, one would find this an ideal neighborhood to live.

Hilton fronts a roadway and a railroad, and the guests whose room faced these two traffic arteries, may experience traffic noise. We choose a room facing the Danube, simply because we wanted to watch river traffic moving up and down the river. Hilton has insulated windows in all their rooms so I don’t think traffic noise will jar you awake. At least we were never disturbed by outside noise.

Our room was always clean, we sleep soundly; and we though our room was a comfortable place to stay. Our breakfast buffet was quite good, and even though it seemed that the breakfast room was always crowded, we had no problem finding an empty table. The food was quickly replenished, and the staff was quick to respond to requests.

We brought our dinner food at neighborhood restaurants, and every one severed good meals. Again we liked the neighborhood that Hilton Danube was located and enjoyed walking the river walkway fronting the Danube.

We used public transportation to get around Vienna, and purchased, daily, our round trip senior tickets at the ticket store located in the Stadion Shopping Center.

Vienna’s public transit system has its own police force and one of their main duties, besides passenger’s safety, is to make sure that passengers do have valid tickets. On several occasions we were asked to show our tickets. And the police always seem to capture passengers who do not have tickets. If you do not have a valid ticket, and the police find you, you are required to get off the train and go through police interview, then given a citation ticket (where you are required to pay a find).

We are glad we stayed at the Hilton Danube, our room was comfortable, we had a clear view of the Danube, we thought the Hilton staff was exceptional and Hilton’s breakfast outstanding. Don’t be concerned about the distance from the hotel to other places of interest as you will find Vienna’s public transportation system quite reliable.

Room Tip: Try to get a river view room

Having stayed in all 3 Hilton hotels in Vienna, this one is the best. Stayed around 5 years ago and while it was very nice the decor looked a bit dated. It since seems to have had a renovation and they have done a great job, no corners cut.

Service is excellent. Spa is great and very accommodating with us arriving on a Friday and being able to book in for a couple of massages at short notice with no complaints. The executive lounge is great and happy to help with any dietary requirements. Rooms are fantastic and amongst the best I've stayed in. Only issue is the location is not very central but there is a metro station close by so not really an issue. Highly recommend if you are coming to Vienna and great value.

Room Tip: Views to the Danube for rooms at the back of the hotel.

We stayed here this summer. Excellent room with wonderful river view. Staff was very helpful and some of the nicest people we met in Austria. Parking was a bit lacking but didn't prove to be a problem. Not a bad walk to the metro station and made easy connections to sights we wanted to see. Executive lounge on top floor very nice with great views of the river and the city. Easy drive to the airport from here. Found a grocery store on the way back from the metro and loaded up on some snacks.

Location: this hotel is river front. Great view of the Danube river. It's about a 10 min walk from the metro station which
Can connect you to anywhere in Vienna. Te price for this hotel is cheaper than staying downtown but much nicer and can't beat the value.
Service: the staff was nice and helpful. Our room got upgraded to river view which was very nice. The hotel Carters to group tours, which I don't mind. The only downside was that many people go to the lobby for free wi fi and makes it look crowded.
Rooms: the too
A were large by European standard two full size beds in Europe can't beat it.
Overall this is a great place invite an good location and great views. Rooms nice and modern, cannot beat the price

I stayed here for one night and arrived late but was welcomed in the usual Hilton style and given an upgrade (Gold Hhonors member). The bar and restaurant were of very high standard and the hotel was a delight to stay in.

From the moment I stepped in the beautiful lobby, I loved this hotel. It makes you feel comfortable, cosy and welcome. I stayed for one night only and got spacious room with two queen size beds,
sofa, writing desk and all neccessary amenities (including iron and ironing board).
Since hotel is quite far from the centre, if you don't feel like going out after long day, hotel restaurant is quite good choice for dinner.
Breakfast is excellent, as anyone would expect at Hilton.
Wifi is free. Parking is available at 15 eur per day.
The only room for improvement I saw on reception desk, a little bit more attention of the staff to check if someone is waiting would be nice. Also check-out time could be shortened.

We stayed at the Hilton Vienna Danube for two nights as part of a bus tour through Eastern Europe. It’s an excellent hotel but quite a distance from the centre of town. There are two U-Bahn stations within walking distance but I would not be comfortable walking through the neighbourhood alone at night. There’s a nice shopping centre with a few places to eat within a 15 minute walk. Our room was very clean and spacious with extremely comfortable beds. Free wifi is only available in the lobby. The staff were helpful and friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our request to have something from the room service menu while we were having dinner in the dining room. They also asked me exactly what ingredients I would like in my salad so they could make it the way I like. The buffet breakfast was excellent with many choices. The only complaint here is that it is difficult to get a table as the seating availability was inadequate. While in Vienna I became ill and required a doctor. The reception staff arranged for a doctor to visit me in my room. It was only about a 45 minute wait before the doctor arrived and prescribed some antibiotics. We very much enjoyed our stay but would prefer to be closer to the centre of town next time.
