Having in mind that hotels in Vienna are not cheap (and neither is this one), the Falkensteiner am Schottenfeld is a perfect option for your stay in this wonderful city.
Location: the hotel is not in the city center, but located in a quiet street outside. The bad thing about this is that it is not very well communicated with the airport. The good thing is that your in a more quiet and less touristic neighbourhood. The surrounding area felt completely safe to walk around at any hour and there are several restaurants and pubs close to the hotel (I recommend the Gasthaus Spatzennest for lunch or dinner, which is about 10 minutes walking down the Burggasse). You can easily reach the city center by bus (bus stop is 100m from the hotel) or simply walking 10-15 minutes. You can also get to the Mariahilfestrasse (a busy shopping street out of the center) by walking 10-15 minutes.
Service: The hotel has a perfect service, and its staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Free WiFi access. Breakfast deserves special mention; high quality & great variety. One of the best breakfasts I have had in a hotel ever.
Rooms: The rooms are spatious, comfortable, clean and quiet. Allthough the decoration is not to write home about, the air conditioning was quite noisy, and I didn't like the pillows (but that's very personal), we felt very comfortable at all times. There is a coffee machine in the room with which you can make two free coffees (additional ones cost 90ct each).
In conclusion, a more or less average 4 star hotel but with an above-average service. An excellent option to enjoy Vienna.
