NO BREAKFAST ! NO HOTEL SIGN IN THE STREET ! DINGY STAIRWELLS ! 3 UGLY STEEL DOORS BEFORE YOU GET TO THE ROOM ! Then : a charming, spacious and comfortable room, a very nice bathroom, windows opening so my wife could evade the no smoking policy, pleasant and helpful staff, a big supermarket just next door to buy in anything you wanted for breakfast or any other meal in the room at your disposal, an excellent lively area just behind the Rathaus... After initial misgivings we were seduced.

As the other reviews have mentioned Pension Lehrerhaus is very good value. Its in a good area with lots of its own restaurants and bars - and its only about 10/15minute walk into the centre - or you can catch the metro.

It was really clean and whilst some of the fittings were a little old fashioned they were old fashioned in a good way - very retro light fittings etc - all in great condition so it didnt feel down at heel at all. The room was huge and I also have to say the bed was the most comfortable bed i have ever slept on in a hotel. The sheets and duvet were really nice and the bed was so comfortable! The whole place is a little old fashioned but its quality old fashioned and its cheap to stay in!

For an expensive city as Vienna, this Pension was a good value. As I recall I think the room was around 40 or slightly under Euros. The room was small with a small bed. There was a sink in the room. The toilet is shared and was close to the room. What was unusal was that the shower was on the next floor up, so you have a little bit of a walk which may not be good for everyone - so when you call ask for a room that has the shower on the same floor. There is a common room on the first floor and you can get coffee there from a machine. There is a common refrigerator, so you can go to the nearby small market and get pastry, orange juice etc. The place was clean and it was quiet. There is a theatre below it or next to it and I thought the noise maybe a problem, but I never heard it. There is no security box in the room but the door was strong and the place felt safe. The location was excellent - right in the tourist area - I could walk to all tourist areas.

Pension Lehrerhaus is a fantastic low-budget alternative for staying in central Vienna. It's basic and offers no frills, but it's clean, convenient and well located close to the tram and metro lines, and in walking distance from the museum quarter, the rathaus and the national theatre. I had a room with en-suite shower and shared bathroom, all very clean although plain and a little old-fashioned. The bed was very comfortable though, and the shower and basin perfectly working.
The breakfast is only available from vending machines, but the common room is open to all guests and it is allowed to bring your own food in. There are shops, a bakery and several cafes very close by to provide refreshments.
Overall, it's highly recommended for those willing to stay in central Vienna on a shoestring.

The Lehrerhaus was - as the name suggests - originally built for the benefit of Austrian teachers at the end of the 19th century. Much of the old layout is still visible in the building, although small improvements are being implemented as time goes by.

The Lehrerhaus today is open to guests from all walks of life, not just teachers. It is possible to become a member of the "Lehrerhausverein" and receive a small rebate on room rates., which are highly competitive anyway.

I paid EUR 37,- a night for a single room (shower, shared bathroom), which is pretty good going for Vienna as anyone will tell you. Ok, there was no TV and no radio. Ok, the shower stall was about three meters from the bed. Ok, the furniture had seen better days (probably some time in the 1960s). Ok, the pictures on the walls were god-awful ... BUT the bedsheets were crisp and clean, the shower was hot and powerful, the washbasin and towels were reasonably clean and there even was a safe in the closet (well, a cashbox that had been screwed down on the floor, actually). What more could anyone on business want to expect from a room?

There are two supermarkets on the same block and one just around the corner. There are one or two banks w/ ATMs within walking distance. For entertainment, try the Vienna International Theatre in the same block or the Josefstadt Theater just down the road.

Public transport is easily accessible (tram or underground), get on/off underground stations Volkstheater or Rathaus.

No breakfast but there are is a dining room with a microwave oven, Mr Coffee and junk food machine. I usually had breakfast and dinner in my room.

I spent almost a week at Pension Lehrerhaus in April, 2004. It was a very positive stay. It was clean, comfortable and quiet when I needed to rest. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The price was excellent (I can't remember how much we paid, but it was about $70 a night for my wife and I).

The rooms were simple but had all we needed (we used a room with a private bathroom). We didn't have a TV but had a radio.

While it's not in the middle of the museums or the shops, it's very close to the downtown area (one block from the outer-ring). It's a five minute walk from two subway stations, and from there you can get anywhere you want very easily. On the positive, it's in a residential area, which probably makes it a bit quieter when you need to rest at night.

There are two small supermarkets in the same block as the hotel. There are also a few restaurants you can walk to.

We really enjoyed our stay at Pension Lehrerhaus.
