Originally from Vienna, I stayed at this hotel recently when visiting my home town.
The hotel is located along one of Vienna's main radial roads, the "Linke Wienzeile". Located just across U4 subway stop "Meidling Hauptstrasse" you can easily reach the city centre, the famous Naschmarkt and get from and to the airport easily. The building is rather unattractive from the outside but surprises with elegance and style on the inside.
We arrived around 10am (as mentioned in our reservation on the hotel's website) and our rooms were not yet ready (check in is at 3pm). Request for an early check in was not granted by the front desk agent which did not leave a great first impression. Even if the hotel was full the night before they should have had a room available within an hour at the very latest. We could leave the luggage behind and kill some time...
The rooms are functional and clean and already a few years from the last renovation. The beds are absolutely amazing. I slept extremely well (and not just because I just had traveled for 24 hours...). The lobby seems renovated and quite appealing. So does the restaurant & bar.
The breakfast was absolutely amazing. I have not seen many buffets with a better selection of good quality food items. The staff was a little overwhelmed though as it was busy and they did not seem very coordinated. Coffee was served at the table which is not very advantageous when it's busy. The friendly server brought coffee but had not thought about milk so we had to wait some more. Not a big deal but certainly some room for additional training of staff.
We did not have time to check out the pool unfortunately so I am looking forward to coming back and trying it out the next time. By then the hotel will hopefully offer free Internet.
