Pension Madara 2 - Hotel in Hernals

“Good value - just remember it's a pension”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The rooms are clean, the pension is within easy reach of public transportation and the staff at the reception is friendly. However, rooms are difficult to get to since you have to leave the reception and trek up various floors and corridors with non-intuitive signs. Also, the WiFi is a little dodgy and I was asked not to use it near the reception desk but in the lobby (up one floor and to the left). If they sorted out their logistics a little I'd have considered it Very Good as opposed to Average.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms near the reception, not in Building 2 as it is quite far.

Cute and sweet little hotel set in the mid town area. Easily accessible near bus terminus. Ready to help smiling staff. Advice/guidance on local sightseeing available at the desk with hand outs. Main attractions easily reachable on road. Tea/coffee machine available for hot beverages.
Overall a nice small stay

Room Tip: Nice Homely stay

Considering its price, everything about this hotel was really satisfying. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly and helpful, no communication problems. Transportation from the hotel is really easy, It lays on a main street.There are nice local bars and diners around the hotel if you want to spend time around the hotel at night.

This was a last minute booking, and we were most impressed. Friendly staff, everything worked, clean, good wifi, great location. Nothing posh, but I'd stay there again, after a very disappointing experience in a much more expensive place.

Everything was OK and really nice! (Except one little thing: no possibility to cook or only to store food in a fridge, for a few days this is not a problem, for longer stay may be a bit unconfortable)

A bit far from city center but you just need to ride one tram to Westbahnhof for about 15 minutes.
Refering to some reviews about this hotel, it's not the spectacular one but later it will depend on your luck and subjective opinion
We got a spacious room for 5 persons with bathroom and toilet inside. It's clean enough and comfortable and so far this was the best price that we could get..
I can't say the receptionist seemed rude cause he just talk as necessary.
There are mini market and restaurant nearby. It's a quiet area and quite live as well.

Room Tip: Some rooms for single or double only have shared bathroom

Sometimes you just know from looking at the place while walking down the street, that this was going to be gross. Its is technically a hostel, most rooms have a shared bathroom in the hallway but we were fortunate to book a room with a private bathroom. There were three beds in our room and two were pushed together to make a big bed, he third was a really dirty looking mattress and box spring on the floor. The toilet was in a separate room from the bathroom and had a leak so there was mold on the wall and ceiling. Aside from the leak in the WC, the bathroom was clean by comparison and the room itself was large. When booking a 2 star "hotel" on the outskirts of town, you get what you pay for. Given that this was Vienna, it was expensive to other comparable accommodations in Europe.
