I actually fell in love with this hotel. It has a very old feeling to it, in a positive way. First of all the location is perfect. There's a tram stop right outside the hotel entrance where 5 tram lines stop. The Schottentor U-bahn and tramlines is one tram stop or 5 minutes walk away.
I didn't know what to expect having read some of the reviews here but I was pleasantly surpriced. We arrived at 11 o'clock in the morning and were allowed to check-in early. When I requested a room with a view of the Votivkirche I was given one. The carpet in our room was NEW!! The bed was nice, the bathroom was very clean and not smelly as suggested in other reviews. The room had a small TV and a refridgerator in it. The cleaning was impeccable and the staff was very friendly.
The free breakfast included different fresh breads, ham, salami, cheese, boiled eggs, corn flakes, juice and yoghurt and tasted great.
I find it very interesting that the person from Brisbane, Australia was so disappointed with the hotel as we stayed in the hotel at the same time.
On the down side the small wall next to the bathroom had a big damp stain on it which was covered by a piece of a cardboard box.
This is a cosy pension, not a luxury hotel. If you keep that in mind you will not be disappointed. For the €60 a night that we paid for our doubleroom this pension was quite a bargain.
