Good friendly hotel with nice and friendly staff. Affordable rooms and good breakfast. Location of hotel nearby rathaus and metro 'rathaus'. In hotel frre coffe and tea for guests during whole day. Air condition in the room available.

We stayed here for 5 nights during very hot weather in July so were very thankful for the air-con which ran day and night and was controllable within the room. We were on the 4th floor and had no trouble with noise at night. The room was a bit tired - stained carpet and bathroom could do with being re-tiled but everything was spotlessly clean and the shower was good although on the small size. There was a fair bit of storage and also a fridge. Free wi-fi is available throughout the hotel - reception will provide passwords etc for up to 4 devices per room. There is an elevator from reception to the upper floors. Reception and breakfast staff were all very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was very good - plenty of choice including scrambled eggs and sausages - there was also bacon one morning. Coffee and tea are available 24hours from a self- serve machine in the guest lounge and no- one objected to it being taken upstairs to your room. We found it to be a fair walk to get to most of the main places of interest so tended to stay very local for meals at night to save another walk down the same streets. ( Marienhof Restaurant -very good traditional Austrian food, iffy service at times - is at the end of the street if you turn left from the hotel). I would recommend this hotel but if you want to be really central it might be worth paying a bit more.

My daughter and I spent three nights here in June 2017. We choose it for its location and good price. We reserved through the hotel website-no problems. Reception staff were very helpful and informative. Check in was easy and in fact we arrived early at 11am and only had to wait about 30 minutes for our room, which was nice after an overnight flight. The room was very comfortable and clean. Wifi was strong. Breakfast was included and it looked great, but we aren't breakfast people so we passed. We walked just about every where from our hotel except the Schonbrunn palace, we used the metro. There are restaurants and cafes nearby the hotel. The only downside was the noise one night, we were on the street side, so we heard some late night revelers and some early morning trash pick up. I would stay here again, in fact I will be in Vienna at Christmas for the markets and will book this place again because of the location.

Really nothing to object about in this hotel. The prices are good. I stayed in a single room which was quite small but the double rooms look larger. The air conditioning works really well. The staff speak English. There is a good breakfast. Also one of the stops on the Airport Bus, Rathaus/ Frederik Schmidt Platz, is quite close to the hotel. Only note of caution is that the hotel isn't that close to any sights and walking to the sights isn't that pleasant or feasible. (You can walk to the Hofburg thru a garden in 10 mins and that is quite nice.) So budget for a public transport ticket.

I stayed here in April for the Easter markets. First solo trip ever and this hotel was just perfect. Had been to Vienna with a friend for a short stop while visiting the Christmas Markets and wanted to come back. Picked this hotel because of the close proximity to the U bahn. Room was clean, price was great considering it had 24hr coffee/tea station and free ample breakfast every morning. Staff was friendly and helpful. Loved that it had a safe in the room and free WIFI. This will be where I stay when I return!

Great location, 5 minute walk from main tourist centre and 3 minute walk to nearest underground which is fantastic. Breakfast was pretty basic but good quality. Very quiet location and no noise heard from in room. Rooms are on small size and basic but clean and comfortable. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay again if in Vienna.

Stayed with my wife at this hotel from 15 - 18 May 2017. Used the facility of an airport pick-up to reach and on arrival were impressed with a friendly, helpful and efficient front office staff. The room was quite large with a walk in closet and a spotless bathroom. The linen was crisp and clean and apart from the fact that there was no tea/coffee making facility in the room, had all the conveniences including sufficient charging points for hand held devices. Free WiFi was available in rooms and across common areas. Tea and coffee was available round the clock at the ground floor lounge. As regards location, it's a short walk from the Town Hall and the House of Parliament. The Town Hall metro station is nearby as are tram stops to take you to all areas of the city. As in most hotels, they are well stocked with sightseeing brochures and can organise tours/visits at short notice, most of them including a hotel pick up. The front office staff do go out of the way to accommodate your requirement. The breakfast which was included in the tariff, is plentiful and is just what is needed to start the day. Would definitely consider staying here if I was to visit Vienna again.

An alright location at least close to U Bahn and airport link. Room was decent size but while there was complimentary coffee/tea always available in the lobby (which is great) no coffee pot in the room which seemed weird. Beds were hard as rock with 2 flimsy pillows. Probably would not chose again but no real regrets. Staff was pleasant and attentive

We got a room on top floor(room 503) which was really small and it was actually 3/4th room. Carpet was faded. The only plus point was its location because Rathaus was on 2min walk and metro station as well.

A good welcome by staff on duty. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Well sited near Rathaus and underground. Coffee & tea available 24/7 in the lounge area, a pleasant area to relax in and have a drink after a hard days sightseeing. Good breakfast with good choice of food. Reception always available to answer questions and provided a map on arrival.
