I ve been with my friends afew days ago to Donauwalzer;. At first we disappointed from the room, because the money we paid was too much for it. BUT the next day when we saw the breakfast, the ecxellent service and the friendly atmosfere from the staff, we changed our mind. The metro, tram, bike road were everything so closed that helped us alot in our vacations. EXCEPT a room to the fifth floor that didn t has any window since my friend opened the door for fresh air, i would invite all to stay there.

We stayed at the 5th floor which is actually the penthouse. The room we had was not the most stylish hotel room I've ever seen. The hotel was still being renovated so I guess they haven't started at the last floor yet. But the room was clean and warm and we had a comfortable sleep. The rooms have grey metal doors which look kind of depressing and on the way to your room you have to pass through other metal doors that separate the little hallways. This is a quite force exercise, but they say is for protection agaianst fire - safety goes first, right?

I have a suggestion to make to the hotel management: you should really improve the sound isolation. When subway was passing by we could hear it pretty loud, almost like an airplane passing over the hotel at a low hight. But we were very tired and we were able to sleep anyway.

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. We has some trouble with the online airport check-in and the young lady at the reception did everything she could to solve the problem.

Breakfast was rich and tasty. I especially liked the coffee.

The position of the hotel is very good. The tram station is right in front of the hotel and the tram 44 will take you right in the center of the city in maximum 10 minutes. Subway station is also a 5 minutes walking distance.

The receptionists were pleasant and helpful. The room was well appointed, everything you need. The breakfast was good. The location was good though initially I had some trouble finding my way from the main train station.
I would have liked the bathroom to be heated.

A friend and I had four nights at the Donauwaltzer and found it charming with non of the anonimity of so many hotels these days.Loved the old style lift and the beautiful staircase (there is a modern lift for those who prefer). The staff were helpful and friendly-spoke exellent english and it seemed a variety off other languages. The owner and her dogs were charming and welcoming. The room we had was small, very clean with character-not just a square box. The windows could be opened (terrific) and we looked out onto gardens and other dwellings and it was very quiet. Breakfast was great-so many different foods to taste plus a glass of sparkling wine; oh yes also great coffee. Excellent value for money.
Efficent and regular trams just outside going straight into the inner city (I love trams) through a variety of suburbs. Underground close by.Great not to be with tourists but with travellers and it seemed business people.

Friendly staff, and great breakfast spread. Very well connected with a Tram stop situated right outside the main door, which takes you right into the historic centre of the city. The Metro station is another 200 mtrs away.

A very professional hotel... most rooms have are done up according to themes, however some rooms have noisy and creaky floors.

There is a lovely restaurant on the way to the metro, very reasonable and delicious pizzas, gyros/ Shawarma (Halal). Its owned by a very pleasant family of Turkish origin. Lovely people.

The location is indeed great and the room on the first floor was exceptional. Also the breakfast was generous and delicious. I have 2 comments though. First is relayed to the fact that after having the room booked by an agency i found out that the wlan is not free. This was not mentioned by the agency or by the hotel website. Secondly at the time of my visit the first floor hallway was being restored. This is how I got the chance to see other cameras and by the way 5th floor really sucks...

Dear Vlad P,

Thank you for you critic about our hotel with the titel "just ok".
As far as I understood, you found
1) the location great,
2) your room exeptional
3) and the breakfast generous and delicious.

What could we improve in your opinion, the get more than a "just ok" from you?

Concerning the WLAN: as mentioned on our web-site, we offer not only a best price guarantee when booking directly with us, but also unlimited WLAN.

Again, I am glad we could convince you with the points that matters in a hotel and on a city trip:
a grat location,
a exeptional room
and, apart from a friendly staff, also
a generous and delicious breakfast.

Looking forward to seeing you soon again,

bet regards from Vienna,

Katharina Kluss
