“A bit pricey for what it offers”
Reviewed March 12, 2011

The good news - the rooms look recently refurbed, clean and functional. Not sure about the shower in a glass enclosure inside the room though. Looks cool, but if you are traveling with someone do you necessarily want to watch each other taking a shower? Depends... Wifi is available and free in room, but not in lobby. Hotel is small and is family operated.

Breakfast is filling, with scrambled eggs, sausages, croissants, fruit, etc. They serve instant coffee though - a big black mark for that!!!

Location is so-so. Hotel faces a very busy street. Soundproofing is good, but you can still hear the traffic. Did not bother me though. Supermarket is literally around the corner, a large shopping mall is down the road to satisfy your every shopping need. Otherwise not many restaurant options around. Fairly close to the conference center/UN area, but a bit far away from the central/touristy area. But hop on the subway, in 15 mins you will be in Stefanplatz -- Vienna is not a big city. The airport bus stops around the corner, and runs once an hour. 30 mins and 7 Euros later you will be at the airport.

Now a words of warning - there is no elevator. They help you bring your suitcase up, but if you have mobility problems - forget it.

Dear "Vladchan",

We are happy to have had you as a guest at our hotel and appreciate you taking time to write us a
review.

We are pleased you liked your room, despite your uncertainties about the glass-enclosed shower. Most of our rooms have a traditional en-suite style bathroom, whereby the shower is not visible from the room. Our guests that travel in pairs are always given the option between the classical rooms with en-suite bathrooms or our modern design-rooms, such as the one you stayed in yourself.

We apologize for your troubles with the Wifi connection in the lobby. We were having some technical issues which have been resolved in the meantime. Wifi is available and free-of-charge to all of our guests throughout the hotel.

We were very pleased to read your positive comments about our breakfast buffet. Many of our guests have given us compliments on it. Regarding the coffee, we can assure you that it was not instant, but a traditional blend from the well-known Austrian company Meinl. Vienna prides itself on its coffeehouses and we would be ashamed to do a disservice to this tradition.

Due to your having stayed with us during Vienna’s hosting of a big congress, our room prices were somewhat higher than usual. This is customarily done by the majority of hotels across Vienna.

The room you stayed in was one of three rooms that looks out on to the street. All of our other rooms face either to the courtyard, garden or the Old Danube River. You are more than welcome to stay in one of these other rooms should you choose to stay with us again.

Whilst it is true that there is no lift in our 2-story building we are always happy to assist where needed.

Thank you once again for your review. We always appreciate getting feedback and hope you choose to stay with us again in future!

Yours sincerely
Johann Partik

My mother stayed here on a 3 day break, and the staff were very helpful at all times and made her feel safe and welcome. The hotel is well situated for public transport and well maintained, and she would happily visit again.

My stay at Strandhotel Alte Donau was very plesant and clam. The hotel's location is great with respect to connectivity as well as river danub. The hotel's private beach is the perfact place to relax. It is very clean and calm. The food was excellent. The hotel receives you with warmth and friendliness.

Strandhotel delivers the best of both worlds: Vienna Metro a scenic 5 minute walk away plus the calm of a river retreat. A delicious buffet breakfast in the walled- in garden or bright dining room fuels you for a day walking around Vienna or a stroll down the riverside path which continues forever.Take the path to one of the riverside restaurants as well.
Service is knowledgeable in this family owned hotel. We veteran travelers would gladly return.
