“All you need at a good price”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Korotan has signs in German and Slovenian and there are a number of other hints at a Slovenian connection. It seems to be leaving behind it's hostel/pension background and becoming more like an all purpose hotel. The whole 2nd floor was being upgraded while we were there in Feb 2013. It is decorated in a modern style to a good standard with an excellent foyer overlooked by a small library with computers for guest's use. Buffet breakfast was marked by a good variety and excellent coffee. Clean. Efficient staff with enough English to get by. The WiFi worked for me on the 3rd floor (Android phone and Tablet). Note: password is all lower case and no spaces.

I spent two days at the hotel. I am satisfied. Advantages of the hotel: Big, rich and tasty breakfast. Very good location. Very close to the subway and cheap restaurants. Quiet neighborhood. The service is nice, cleaned thoroughly every day my room.

Hotel Cons: No air conditioning in the hotel. Very poor quality, small TV. Very small and very few TV channels. The problem is also the fact that the reception does not work around the clock.


If you do not have to have air conditioning I can recommend this hotel.

This hotel is a great value. It is in a nice area and close to 2 tram lines that will take you to the nearby city center or other tourist sites. There are 2 good restaurants across the street. The hotel is very basic & "spartan", but the rooms are big & clean, although the showers are small. The breakfast is very good also. The only drawback is a lack of air conditioning or fans in the room.

Room Tip: There are rooms on the central courtyard that are very quiet.

The location of Korotan is very good and close to both tram and undergorund stations. The lobby is nice and looks fine, but the rooms are not that nice. You have all the basic, though. Everything worked in my room, but it was not the most enjoyable place to stay at. There's free wi-fi in the lobby bu not in the rooms (there you can access the internet only by cable). The receptionists were very kind and helpful. Breakfast was nice and everyone can find something for themselves.

I stayed 3 nights in a single room. The hotel is well located close to U6 line. The room was very very shabby and not well maintained and it largely reminded me of a dorm-room. Some instances: The door would not lock - but instead of having it repaired, the door handle was replaced with fixed doorknob. No "Do not disturb" sign available. When I grabbed my duvet, the slip got torn. Craky tiles in the bathroom. In addition, the shower stall was extremely small. There is no wi-fi in rooms. At least it was clean, though. The breakfast was quite OK, except for eggs, which were cooked only half-way (when I peeled it, the upper part drained). I payed 39EUR per night, so not much. But in general, I do not recommend this hotel, there are definitely better ones that will make your stay in Vienna more pleasant.

Unfortunately I didnt seem to have as good an experience as other reviewers here.

Good points: reasonably central, close to U-bahn station, well priced, a few good restaurants/bars in the same road (Albertgasse 39, Lavanderia, Cafe Hummel).

Not-so-good points:
Reception desk closed between 10pm and 8am - I couldnt leave luggage in hotel on my last day as I had to leave hotel at 7:30am despite a late evening flight.
Didnt find receptionists terribly helpful when I asked for amenities (internet/electricity issues/checkout etc).
Did not connect to internet in my room (despite a number of cables supplied).
Although clean, rooms not really of hotel standard - the single room I stayed in looked like a hostel setting, or an ex-students room.
I didn't find much comfort or services here - if you're in Vienna on business, not ideal.
Room was awfully hot in August.

Room Tip: Not ideal for business travellers
