The Rooms is a nice B&B, conveniently located (only 5 min. walk from Kagran metro stop) in a quiet neighborhood close to the old Danube. The building and the rooms are well-designed and you can tell that a lot of thought and effort went into choosing cool furniture to give the whole place a very contemporary touch.
Unfortunately, soundproofing is lacking, so you can hear other guests have a conversation in the next room which I find quite exacerbating at night. It's also a little on the pricey side, if you consider the fact that it's not in the city center.
The reason why I chose a B&B instead of an anonymous chain hotel was to have some sort of personal interaction with the hosts (i.e. ask questions about good restaurants, sights, etc.) Unfortunately, this was not the case at all here and became especially apparent during breakfast. People here just seemed very indifferent and not very hospitable.
Breakfast was served on the table in the morning in a sort of buffet style...some fresh fruit and nice bread...but you were asked what you wanted to drink, got your ONE cup of coffee and then the host disappeared for good and shut the door. Makes you feel kind of weird when you have to ask for a second cup of coffee, especially considering the price of the B&B.
On my next trip to Vienna, I'll give a chain hotel another chance.
