I just spend four nights in this hotel which was completely renovated and reopened in July 2013. We had a standard room with two single beds and a quite large bathroom with a badtub. It was 38 degrees Celsius in Vienna and the air conditioning kept our room cool. There is a mini bar, a safe as well as a boiler to prepare tea. They also offer different types of pillows. The room is sound-proof (street and other rooms). In general, the room is very confortable and everything in the room was new. Unfortunately wifi signal was weak, unstable and required constant relogging because of the system they are using. This was very annoying. Breakfast was typical for austrian and German hôtels, lots of choice for every taste except on the days that the hotel was full. The waitresses, two very very nice ladies, could not cope with the workload (no plates, cups,...) and some of the best choices of food that was available on normal days was missing, such as yogourt, home-made muesli,croissants and cakes. There is a coffee machine for different types of coffee, which was much better than the typical filter-coffee. The display of the buffet is not that great since it is in a corner and even if there are only 5 persons it feels crowded and unpleasant. The young receptionists were very helpful and had a professional attitude in responding to all my tourist-type of questions (how do I go to this or that museum; can you recommend some restaurant in the neighbourhood, how much is taxi to the airport ...)except one elderly man who made me feel that he could not really be bothered by my questions. The hotel is on a quiet street but outside the Ring. That is why I do not agree with other comments stating that the hotel is in the center. You need to walk for 25 minutes to get to the heart of the city or take tram D directly to the Opera and the main shopping street or two stops on bus 40A and then take the metro. However, I agree that there is a very good choice of restaurants and eateries in the neighbourhood, ask the concierge....
