“Good value; good location, charming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2009

We stayed at this hotel based on the Tripadvisor recommendations. It is a charming hotel. The staff is not overly friendly but they are extremely helpful and efficient. My mom's purse was snatched down the street at Cyberscenez. The staff was extremely efficient in helping us cancel credit cards and get calls through to the embassy and police. They also were kind enough not to charge us but what had to be charged on the phone calls out.

There is no AC, but the breezes through the rooms did not really warrant it much at the time we were there. The rooms are small, but the beds were comfortable. I loved the feel of the hotel. The only thing I could complain about is the street we were on had lots of beggars and some people who looked a little less than trustworthy. It is situated close to a grocery store though and the subway. Overall an excellent value!

I had an excellent stay at the Austria Classic Hotel Wien in April. The hotel is charming, small with attentive staff. My room (a single) was small by American standards, but certainly much better than what I've come to expect abroad. There was still plenty of room for to navigate around the bed (queen-sized), a comfy corner desk with lots of counter space, a wardrobe-type closet, and a small, but quite functional, bathroom with shower. There were lots of little things, wall decorations, carpet, curtains, tile work in bathroom, that added up to quite a classy feel. Certainly not the college dormitory vibe I've had at other places.

Staff were excellent. The front desk seemed very interested that my stay be comfortable and helped me out several times with directions, printing a few business documents, recommending restaurants, etc. The breakfast is ample with many choices including several hot items (eggs, sausage, etc.).

Location is very convenient to the U1 line at the Nestroyplatz station. Other UBahn connections are only a stop or two away.

Absolutely recommended!

Oh, almost forgot, in-room reliable Wifi! For free....

For many years I have been returning to the Austria Classic Hotel Wien (formerly Hotel Nordbahn) in Vienna. It is an extremely comfortable, moderately-priced small hotel with very nice amenities (sauna, wellness room, exercise room, hotel bar, parking, and more) and a truly wonderful breakfast. It's not in the old city, but it is very conveniently located -- a two-stop subway ride from Stephansplatz, the heart of the old city, and within walking distance of Hundertwasser Haus and Kunsthaus Wien (a couple of my favorite less-well-known Vienna attractions). What really has kept me coming back every year are the incredibly friendly and helpful people on staff. They are genuinely devoted to making your stay comfortable and to helping you make the most of your time in Vienna -- whether that involves business obligations, touring, or just taking advantage of Vienna's many possibilities. Business brings me to Vienna regularly, and I always stay at Austria Classic Hotel Wien.

Once again, this hotel, and its staff, are simply the best in Wien. I always look forward with great pleasure to my next trip, and in 6 weeks I shall be returning to enjoy the hospitality once again.

As indicated in the previous reviews the breakfast is excellent. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Overall no real problems with the hotel and facilities. Just beware, or check when booking, that some of the double rooms are very small (the one we had for instance). It was extremely difficult to both close the en-suite door whilst washing or cleaning ones teeth. That apart the hotel was adequate for our stay. It's location is within easy walking distance of the centre (or 2 stops on the metro), access to the main and suburban rail network less than 5 mins away at Prater station.

We have been for the second time guests at this hotel and fortunately there have been only signs of progress after the name changed, like TFT screens and a free wifi hotspot in the lobby. I also must add the stuff has got even friendlier so this hotel will stay on top in our preferences for the case we'll attend the Chirstmas next winter in Vienna

Austria-Switzerland were heavily booked because of the Soccer championships but we were lucky to be referred to this hotel by the one we had stayed in on an earlier trip to Vienna.
Wonderful staff. Nothing was a bother and the rooms were very comfortable.
The hotel is a five minute walk from the Prater and from the Underground to the city. The walk to the city is very easy too.
We had four adults- a just 2 year old and one 3 months so we pressed the accommodation to the limit.
We loved our stay and would not hesitate to go back again. Thankyou Staff you deserve 10/10.
