Hotel Alpha gets high marks!

the service, quality of accommodation, value, and amenities are outstanding. great breakfast and lovely service. front desk very helpful and kind in all respects. the rooms, while small, are nicely appointed; the neighborhood is quiet yet very close to U and tram and city center and a nice range of restaurants and cafes (Lebanese, Indian, bio-vegan as well as traditional Viennese cuisine). the only slight inconvenience was the internet service, requiring a new login and password every 24 hours--an unnecessary workaround.

Great hotel!!

Great hotel, next to the touristic part of Vienna, about 100 meters from a subway line. Staff is very friendly, they gave us our room at 9am. The breakfast was delicious. 9EUR for wifi if you really need it (in some parts of vienna there's a free public wifi)

Good location, helpful staff

A good location within easy reach of the subway abd buses. Accessible to the important attractions in Vienna and moderately priced restaurants. The Front Desk was helpful in advising how to get around and choices of places of interest. We enjoyed the room's comfort. We could have been told that there was a film festival behind the Radhus. Fortunately we discovered it and attended. Quite a food spread!

Turn left on leaving the hotel, then right at the main street. Cross the street and walk about 100 metres. Dine in a courtyard with flowers around you. Sorry, can't remember the name of the restaurant It bears a lady's name. Good food.

Perfect short stay location

My wife and I stayed here for our first trip to Vienna, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location, close to the Town Hall was very convenient, with Tram 2 running past the end of the road every free minutes, straight into the city centre. Staff were very friendly and spoke good English. Breakfast was comprehensive, fresh and tasty, and the free coffee available in the lobby was excellent and much appreciated after a days tramping arount the city. Our room was on the small side, but spotlessly clean. The safe was useful, but the TV only had one free English language channel - but who comes to VCienna to watch TV? The room would have been very quiet except for the work on a nearby building which seemed to start at 6:30am - ok for us as early risers, but worth checking if the renovation has been completed if you are a light sleeper - should be done by Spring 2013 I'd guess. I would definitely want to stay here again - all you good want for a good value comfortable stay.

Try the Cafe Einstein close to the Town Hall (Rathaus) for good traditional food and drinks, with friendly staff and illustrated menus on iPads!!

Great Stay

Location for my group was great - easy walking distance to the museum quarter, or a very simple subway trip. All out work was in that location so that was ideal. The subway also easily got us to the big farmer's/flea market on our off day as well as into the city center. Public transport is awesome here. Hotel is clean, staff are friendly and helpful and overall my group had a great experience. Rooms are small to us Americans, but if you've traveled in Europe at all they are typical in size. Bathrooms also small, but again typical. If I had the opportunity to do it all over again, I would definitely make the decision to stay at Hotel Alpha.

Disorganized Hotel

Upon our late arrival into Vienna (of which the hotel was aware), we were tired and just wanted to get into our hotel room to relax. The receptionist at the hotel apologized to us, and told us that they had overbooked and that our reservation was invalid there, but that she had taken the liberty to book us into another hotel, which was exactly the same quality as Hotel Alpha. The other hotel was farther from the subway station,and because it was so late, (almost midnight) we felt as though we had no choice as to which hotel we were going to spend our weekend in. Although the receptionist was very apologetic, it was an enormous inconvenience--needless to say, we will not be booking anymore stays at this very irresponsible hotel at any time.

Good deal!

Very nice 3-star. The people at the front desk were the best- very helpful. The single room was small by US standards, but normal by European. Breakfast was better than average. I plan to go back again in two weeks on my next trip to Vienna.
