The hotel is not in the centre but it is only only 3 stops on the U-bahn (~10mins) to St Stephens cathedral. The hotel is a few minutes walk when you take exit Heinstrasse I think it is called. U-bahn is great to use as you can get to most places quickly. The Prater train station areas though is quite dodgy at night (and not that much better during the day). Taking the exit mentioned above means you can avoid the dodgy characters! The train station does run directly to the airport in about 30 minutes which was really convenient.
This is an adequate hotel for 2 night stay. The room is an ok size though with two single beds, a sofa bed and two tables along with chairs this reduced the space for 3 people. Things that were great about the hotel was a good selection of breakfast - hot & cold items, free wifi and staff are pleasant.
A few bugbears for me was the air con which didn't work and the room was very stuffy and hot when the windows were not open. We did have to call to get bedding for the sofa bed. Bathroom rail was loose so had to get this fixed. In saying that though, the bathroom was a nice size. There was no complimentary tea and coffee facilities. When I asked for this they did give this to us for free but said we would have to pay for any more. Building work was going on so very noisy and didn't feel like waking up to this at 8am. These are little things but when it all added up I felt a bit disappointed. I would rate this a very good 3* hotel but not 4* when comparing to other hotels. I wouldn't stay here again but more because of the area than the hotel.
