“Great price for its location”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

My daughter and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of May 2012. VERY CLEAN. Great view of a park from our room. Nice breakfast, conveniently close to the rooms. An elevator, so important when you have heavy luggage. Not a bad walk to the U-bahn, just a few blocks. In the Innere Stadt, so close to all the places you want to visit. Buy a wochenkarte and utilize the trams and U-bahn for your entire stay and avoid the hassle of a car. Anita runs a well-oiled operation. Things are quiet, no rabble rousing. She does have a lot of "rules" to follow when it comes to their water system, clearly there are a lot of idiots who have visited. Not luxurious and I think if you are here during hot weather and have to open your windows at night to sleep the street noise might be a problem, but it wasn't a problem while we were there.

This is a very well located pension with tremendous value. Frau Klaus is a cheerful and accommodating host and the breakfast is delicious. Her family has a history of hospitality and she carries on the tradition proudly. The pension is quiet and comfortable. It is located a few blocks from the Schottenring U4 train stop and also a few blocks to the airport bus. Book early, because quality accommodation this affordable and this close to central Vienna is hard to find.

Perfect spot to enjoy Vienna. The accommodation standard is good quality three star. The building is 125 years old and very beautiful howver it is undergoing a facade restoration and many rooms have scaffold and opaque plastic over the windows. If staying there in the near future ask for a room that has the restoration work completed. Good breakfast and very friendly owners

We stayed here for two nights in May and found it to be a very good value. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable, view out our window was of a green area with trees. There is a grocery store across the street if you want to buy supplies. The breakfast was also very good with an excellent selection of marmalades. The location is close to the U Bahn and a 15 minute walk to the popular tourist attractions. The owner, Anita, recommended the Cafe Wolf just down the street for lunch or for a cup of melange. We sat at an outside table and enjoyed watching people from the neighborhood going by. All and all a good value for your money.

at not even 300m from the aeroport bus station, this cozy B&B is situated at 5 minutes walk from mostly all attractions in Vienna. You really don't need any bus ticket to get around from here. Really quite, the home keeper is soooo nice and helps you to find the best local restaurants and shops! The rooms are simple but clean and the breakfast is just perfect. If I'll ever go back to Vienna, I'll definitively come again to this b&b.

Title says it all. The place is spotless although the decoration is a bit on the plain or tacky side.
If you fly into Vienna it is a five minute walk from the airport bus stop. Eventhough it is not right smack in the center with the excellent public transportation system you are ten minutes ride from Opera House, Cathedral, etc. Or you can walk to a lot of places.
Big and tasty breakfast included. Guten appetit !!!

Room Tip: Depending on your budget, you have with or without private bathroom.

We just returned from spending four nights at the Schweizer Pension in Vienna. Location was within walking distance to all the major sights. Arriving at Westbahnhof it is easy to get to this pension. You change in Volkstheater and get off at Shottenring. Anita operates a very well run pension. She is dedicated to her family operation. Very hard working and wants to please. It is spotless. We did have a share bathroom and shower. Never had to wait for either. I would bring a light robe to make it easier after taking a shower. free wifi, it only worked in the common area and not in our room. Breakfast is filling and you can take leftovers for lunch. I would stay here again. Excellant value for within the inner ring of Vienna.
