The Wilhelmshof Hotel is located in Vienna within close walking distance to the U1 metro station Praterstern. We opted for this hotel since it offered a room with an additional bed for kids at no additional cost, and because of the very comfortable position: the city center is a few metro stops away, as well as pleasant places like Donauinsel or Alte Donau.
The hotel has been recently converted from a three stars to a four star hotel. In this respect, some things could be improved: while the ground floor and most of the stairs have been renewed with a modern and pleasant design, we found a worn up moquette in upstairs corridors and in our room. This latter, toilet included, was wide, well furnished and comfortable. Linen were, as usual in Vienna, in the traditional mitteleuropean/british style (the blanket is wrapped into linen sheets, and it is not blocked under the mattress) which is not that comfortable for people not used to. Our room was equipped with: a) A/C, usually not strictly necessary in Vienna climate, but appreciated in mid-summer; b) fridge, of which I appreciated the explicit advice "of course you can put your own stuff here", opposed to many hotels forbidding that for 'security reasons' or other stupid motivation; c) TV, whose volume was blocked: this certainly improves the quality of sleeping throughout the hotel, but the TV was barely audible. Both prices of the laundry services and of fridge items were reasonable.
The hotel offers a free-wifi whose coverage includes rooms, and there are two pc freely accessible in the hall. A parking was accessible but it was not free.
The personnel has been kind and helpful at any moment. Wilhelmshof has an excellent score in breakfast also. There was a variety of breads (all the nice Austrian breads were represented) and a good choice of salty and sweet food (bacon, eggs, ham, cheeses, vegetables, croissants, cakes, cereals of many sorts, yogurt, milk, many fruit juices, fresh and dried fruit, nuts).
