First off, this hotel is not near the old town. We navigated public transportation to get to the old town, but it wasn't convenient at all.
We arrived as part of a bus tour. There were 3 tours arriving at the same time and it was chaos. The hallways were smelly and the room was very disappointing. It was not well cleaned and very rundown. There was something caked on the bathroom door jam that remained there for our entire stay. I called to the front desk for help with the internet and was told that I had to come to the desk for a password and they would not give this out over the phone. The chair in the room was broken when we arrived. I called to ask for a new one, and it was delivered quickly, but it was old, dirty and an uncomfortable stacking stool.
We went to the front desk and stood in line for an internet password and to ask for directions on a good place to eat. The person in front of us (a member of our tour group) was asking the same question and the staff member stated that the hotel has an excellent restaurant. The tour group traveller asked if he could recommend somewhere outside of the hotel and the staff member stated no, and repeated that they have a restaurant on site.
Breakfast - tasty but messy. Tables were not cleaned quickly. I was soooo looking forward to coffee in Vienna and the breakfast coffee was terrible, however, that could have been because I had to ask guests as they were leaving the table for whatever was left in their carafe as I had asked a breakfast staff member on both mornings there and none was ever brought.
