“Still a sound choice; just as I remembered it”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

But a brief walk from Schwedenplatz U-bahn and tramway station, this is a good mid-range hotel . The plus points: ease of access to the airport and all parts of the city and its environs; comfortable rooms; helpful and friendly staff; free wifi access with a strong signal; excellent breakfasts; reasonable restaurants in the vicinity, at least one of which has a kitchen that remains open until 23h30. If your visit entails a visit to the Wiener Kammeroper you'll find it every bit of 100 metres away. Over the years, this is something like the sixth Viennese hotel that I've stopped in. As long as the Hotel Austria keeps up its standards I need no longer look elsewhere on future visits.

I've stated at this hotel 3 times, each for 1 week while on business trips. It is located just steps away from the Schwendenplatz metro station and a quick walk to the main city square with the church. There are lots of nice restaurants in close walking distance to the hotel.

All working at the hotel are super friendly and offer great advice on restaurants and tourist activities. The room is comfortable, and given the location of the hotel on a courtyard it is extremely quiet. The provided breakfast is also first-rate and excellent. Overall, I cannot think of a better place to stay in Vienna and will always return to this hotel when in Vienna on business.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 316 which overlooked inner courtyard during last visit. But, even rooms on outside...

Located at the end of a side street, Hotel Austria is peaceful while being in the middle of the historical part of town. With high ceilings and traditional decor (but modern, comfortable bed), it puts you in a real Viennese mood. A generous breakfast buffet is included. Every request we made at the front desk was handled immediately--even booking train travel.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Austria. Location was good to central Vienna.
This was our second trip to Vienna and we enjoyed the hotel much better than our first visit.
It has a lot of Old World Charm and that is what we enjoy when we visit Europe. I would stay there again if we ever return to Vienna.

The hotel was on a little side street just minutes from St Stephens, restuarants, tram, grocery and all those lovely candy shops (one week till Easter) Our bedroom was ample enough and we had a sitting room with couch, desk and tv. The bathroom was very clean as was the room. There was free wifi and breakfast, the ladies in the breakfast were very efficient and rushed around to accomodate your needs. We were on the 2nd floor and right across from our room was a terrace with tables and umbrellas. Reception was friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed Renate who was very helpful and fun to visit at reception. All in all a excellent choice of hotel. Oh, I forgot to mention our radiator stopped working one night and they called in a repairman in the middle of the night to fix it, nice.

We stayed here 3 nights in the very snowy last week of March 2013. The staff were friendly and helpful suggesting restaurants and making bookings where necessary. The location is excellent only 5 mins to the metro and 1 metro stop from the CAT station and walking distance to St Stephansdom. The rooms were a good size, we had a triple which turned out to be a suite of 2 rooms with 2 twins beds in one room and one in another, plus a bathroom. This worked well as we were traveling with our teenage son. Mind you he is 6'2" so he found his bed a tad short, but that is fairly normal in a standard twin bed. They had free wifi in the rooms and access to a computer and printer(handy to print boarding passes) in the lobby, breakfast was also included. The breakfast was very good although the hot selection was fairly limited. There was plenty of choice in everything else. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a short alley and there are lights shining on the building across the alley which sh...

This hotel is an excellent base to explore central Vienna.
It could not be better placed. On a quiet back street, only a 10 minute walk from the Mitte rail station featuring the CAT airport link.
Also, just a 5 minute stroll to St Stephens cathedral.
The rooms are small, but pleasant.
there is no Bar or restaurant in the hotel, but the mini bars are well stocked and not badly priced.
The breakfasts are excellent.
