Basic but comfortable

The hotel was near the station and so convenient. The room was a bit more basic than I had anticipated with no tea/coffee facilities. The hotel should think about providing this I think in the future. The pillows are almost flat with no stuffing in them but when we tried to get an extra one there were none available so my husband gave me his and ended up using his coat as a pillow.

Just the facts - Not a happy camper with this hotel

Was very disappointed with the room and the service. The air conditioner did not work. When I informed the front desk, I was told they were turned off for the winter. (Does not explain the lights on the unit and the E7 error code when I tried to turn it on.) Told to open the window to cool the room. Window was hard to open. Again informed the desk. No action on this either. Traffic noise and noise from the theater next door was heavy until about 11-12. Street sweeper came by at 5:30 and the street repair people started work at 6:30. Room was stuffy without the window being open. No coffee in the room. Available in the restaurant downstairs. They tried to charge me twice what I would pay anywhere else. When I refused, I was given the cup free ("This time." Did not partake of the breakfast offered. Was told it was 12 Euro's per person per day. Later, when checking their web site found a statement that "breakfast is included with all rooms". When I asked about this, was told the statement did not include rooms booked through on-line services. Checked Orbits' site, no mention of breakfast one way or another. When checking out, overhead another couple discussing breakfast with the desk. Room was clean. Had a small key operated drawer to store valuables. (3"x6"x1.5"), refrigerator, no microwave, TV. Beds are twins pushed together but are adequate. Tub/shower has a large step-down to the floor. (Wife had trouble with this.) No laundry facilities on site (washer/dryer for guest use) English was spoken by the desk.

The concert at the Castle Schonnenbrum was excellent. Performed in the Great Hall at the castle. Dinner was OK but the wait-staff was very good.

HORRIBLE hotel facilities!!! Changed name to "All Seasons". DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

Staff was wonderful. Great food in restaurant. FILTHY CARPETS. Looked as if they had not been cleaned since they were put in during the 1970s. The bed was so hard I am pretty sure it was a box spring covered with a sheet - Woke up because body parts went totally numb. THE NAME is NOT "DAS PRESIDENT". You get there and it is now the "ALL SEASONS". It is a one star at best. SMELLY ROOMS. SMOKE SMELL. MILDEW SMELL. And the shower either soaked the floor or sprayed the permanently fixed and plugged in hair dryer installed during the 80s. DO NOT walk from the subway at night. NOT SAFE!!!

Good location and clean rooms

Located in the 6th District, the hotel (much smaller than the name would suggest) is not far from the Gumpendorfer U-Bann (subway) station, which can take you to most sightseeing in the 1st District, as well as the Schoenbrunn Palace. The staff members are courteous and helpful about local information. Although a little old, the room is clean. I wish they could provide iron boards in the room (maybe that's something Austrian hotels don't normally do?) The hotel restaurant is Italian style. If your rate doesn't cover breakfast, you would have to pay 12 euros per person.

Never book tickets (to shows, concerts, etc) from the reception desk as they would surcharge 20% for service. But they don't surcharge for calling a taxi service.

Awesome hotel, very close to the shopping street (mariahilfer strasse), and only three metro stations to Kartner strasse. The staff was awesome, and very helpful.

Good value

This hotel was very good with clean and comfortable rooms, free Internet access and helpful staff. It's also quite close to a major train station, which is a big advantage. The only downside might be that the room was a little too dark when the curtains were drawn. Also when we asked the receptionist to keep our bags after checkout, she put them in a room accessible by everyone, which was a bit concerning for us. Overall the hotel is a good value.
