“Hotel Zipser”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

This was my second stay at Hotel Zipser, having in-between stayed at a different hotel in another district, because everyone else at the conference was staying there so I did too! I would not stay there again, but I would always consider Hotel Zipser when visiting Vienna.

Hotel Zipser is smaller, more inexpensive, and nicely intimate. Because it is family-run, it has a friendly, welcoming ambience. The breakfast is second to none, and the service in the breakfast-room is exceptional. It does not have dining facilities, but there are several excellent and reasonably-priced restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

Although it is in the 8th district, Hotel Zipser is close to all transport. It is only a few minutes' walk from the U2, the Town Hall and its adjacent park, the city theatre, and stops where you can catch a tram to anywhere, including the famous Prater where you can even catch the convenient S7 connection to the airport.

All in all, I would heartily recommend Hotel Zipser. My only reservation is the price, which is quite fair for couples but stretches the single traveller. In all other respects, I give it top marks!

We found this hotel last year and returned through a cheap BA deal. For a three star hotel it excels with spacious rooms, friendly staff and a extensive choice for breakfast. The location, tucked away behind the Rathaus is reasonably central with the Ring about eight minutes walk and a U-bahn station closer. We will be back.

My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Zipser in mid-Dec. 2013. I was very pleased with the location.... easy walk to the main downtown area and restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions and the awesome Christmas markets! It was also a quick short walk to a tram station for us to get to the train station. My main disappointment was in the actual room....our room was desperately in need of a remodel...walls were dirty and needed to be painted...room was very dated....it did have a nice and big balcony overlooking an outdoor courtyard but as it was very cold and wintertime we did not use it. Everything was kept very clean. I did not like that the maid "tidied up" our room..she moved our personal belongings around on top of the desk and organized things by moving our stuff around.
Breakfast room was attractive and the staff very attentive and friendly. Adequate selection of items...scrambled eggs pan was empty on our first morning there and it took a long time til it was replaced. Front desk staff was helpful if you asked for help. There were only 1 or 2 English news channel stations on the TV...very limited. I was glad for the good location but this hotel was not anything special and I felt the room was not at all like the photos on Trip Advisor. If I stayed here again I would want to know if there are any newer remodeled rooms..I would not be eager to stay here again.

Room Tip: if you stay here ask if there are any newly remodeled rooms

Stayed here with my husband and teenage daughter in a family room. Could not fault anything about it. Very clean, great location and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Great location for visiting Christmas markets and lovely restaurants in the area, also walking distance of busy shopping area.

We have stayed for 4 nights and had an marvelous experience. Rooms are very open and fresh because of the high ceiling. The hotel is very clean and quiet. People are very professional and friendly. Open buffet breakfast is very satisfactory and everything is very tidy and cleanly served. Waiters are amicable and always ready for your service. one of the most important things for me is that beds are very comfortable.

Room Tip: Upper floors are very fine

Great Hotel, excellent location, superb breakfast, hot dishes, cold dishes, rolls bread, in fact everyone you would want to start the day. The rooms are small but spotless and very warm, we stayed in December! Its a family run hotel now in the third generation.Very friendly staff.
Excellent location in a quiet one way street 5 minutes from the Rathaus and its UBahn station with trams at the end of the street (number 2). The best way to get around the city is to buy a 3 day Vienna card which gives you free travel on Buses, Trams, UBahn and S Bahn trains, also discount to Cafes, Restaurants and sights all for 19 EUROS, so great value.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, no noise problems at all.

On our first trip to Vienna for the Christmas markets we were not disappointed by the accommodation, very close to the town hall markets and within walking distance to a number of other markets, hotel very clean and comfortable, good breakfast included in the price, the staff were excellent and very happy with our room.
