We stayed for 9 nights in this clean simple hotel.Location is fantastic.The hotel staff is professional yet very friendly.All the questions answered,all the problems solved.Thank you,Carmen,Andreas,Valerian...and...and.. I guess there is a good manager.
To start, I should say that this hotel wasn't my choice so I think I was upset going into it. I had booked a different hotel which had accidentally overbooked and sent me here. The location was great - very close/walking distance to everything we wanted to do in Vienna. However, the room left a lot to be desired. Our shower was dirty and got water all over the bathroom because it didn't have a full enclosure, the room was tiny and the bed was not very comfortable. The hotel had a bar but no one was there so it wasn't a great place to spend the end of an evening which I like when I'm traveling. Overall, it was okay, but I probably wouldn't have chosen it nor would I return.
This hotel is centrally located near the metro (subway, underground, the tube) which ever you prefer. Take it to Karlsplatz. Also close to the University so there are young students everywhere. Naschmarkt is less than a block away. So if you're like me and this is your first time, ask locals when you come out of the metro which way is the Naschmarkt. Look for the "Wein Co" sign on the building on the corner and Hotel Mecure Secession is a few buildings up. The hotel itself is small. Only 70 rooms I believe. Also there are other Hotel Mecure's in the area closer to the main plaza and cathedrals so make sure you check the address. The Vienna Opera house featured in the last Mission Impossible movie is a couple blocks away. Our room had a small refrigerator which was nice. The room was clean and the hotel was quiet. Great starting point to catch the metro and head out to Schonbrunn Palace. You can find breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Naschmarkt. It's several blocks in length. More flea market towards the southwest end and food on the northeast closer to the hotel. Prices can be haggled with the vendors on most non-food items.
I chose this hotel primarily because of its location, which is ideal whatever you are looking to do during your stay. Across the road is the magnificant Secession building and access to Karlsplatz undeground station. Keep walking beyond Karlsplatz and you soon arrive at the Opera, Karntner Strasse and the wonders of the Altstadt. Turn to the right as you leave the hotel and walk up the road towards the Museumsquartier and, turning left before you get that far, you come to Mariahilferstrasse - one of the main shopping streets. Oh, and there's a very handy Spar shop just across from the Kunsthistorischesmuseum which sells almost anything you might want, from food to washing up liquid! The hotel itself, is relatively small. Our standard room was adequately furnished, with a TV, tea and coffee making facilities, including a coffee machine (although bizarrely no instructions on how to use it!) We had a separate little room for our clothes and a small safe, plus a reasonably large bathroom. We had a bit of trouble getting replenishments for our tea and coffee and there was dust on the bedside tables and a large cobweb hanging from the ceiling over the bed! The breakfast buffet offered a comprehensive selection of goodies: breads, rolls, cereals, fruits, youguhrts, cold meats and cheese, plus some hot foods such as scrambled eggs, bacon etc. It could get quite busy at breakfast around 9:00 when the staff on duty (generally 2 of them) really struggled to clear tables, re-set them and maintain the buffet supplies. Go a bit earlier if you can! The mattress on our bed was really soft, but perhaps we were unlucky. That said, I would stay there again if visiting Vienna, because of its location.
The hotel is located near karlsplatz train station, royal opera house and the market where there is lots of food and drinks. The reception staff Sandra and her colleague are extremely friendly and helpful. Good value for money if like us you plan on spending majority of your time sightseeing.
The location of the hotel is excellent, it is close to the underground station, a short cab away from the central train station OBB, and very easy to get to from the airport whether you decide to train or cab it. It is near the Opera house and a short walk into the city centre. There is lots of places to eat and drink as it is located next to Vienna's famous market. The hotel itself is very good value and the staff are extremely helpful. Sandra and her colleague were some of the most helpful reception staff I met and would recommend and come back again as long as they continue to work there.
This hotel is in great location, one of the entrances of the Metro station: "Karlsplatz" (connecting lines : U1,U2,U4) is οn the left corner, just 2 min walk, in front of the "Secession" building. Also, just οn the right corner, is the Naschmarkt. We've been there at the first days of June and we had a no view, large, clean room, with a bright new, huge, clean bathroom, a kitchen with a fridge and a coffee maker. Our complains, concern the very-very soft bed mattress that we "sank in", limited variety of toilletries that were not replaced and the absence of a handle / foothold in the slippery shower. But the most annoying was, that our - no view - room (101) was at the back side of the hotel, looking in a small space / "veranda", where every noon (15:00-17:00) or even early morning (7:00-8:00), many clients and the most of the hotel staff, smoking, talking and laughing very loudly. Of course, we could close the windows, if the AC was not above our bed and our heads, or even complain to the reception staff, if someone was at his working position.
Excellent hotel, very friendly staff and the central location has everything. The hotel breakfast is also very good. I recommend this hotel for Vienna. The market nearby has good fish restaurants as well.
I have been in Vienna for many times but this was wonderful stay thanks to the amazing hotel and its stuff! I will write now full comments about our 3 days stay: We arrived around 11 AM and while check in was officially at 2 PM they saved our luggage and gave us clean room at 12! Big thanks for that! We stayed in room 105 which comes with the kitchen. The room is apartment! Huge! Well equipped and very comfortable. We had issue in bathroom with regards of water floating but once reported to reception they fixed it immediately. The room cleaning service was very good. I am pregnant and many times was tired to clean the dishes, so they were doing even that for me. The hotel is very quiet, clean and well equipped. Now with regards to location I can say best of the best!!! Right next to the Naschmarkt with full fun restaurants open till midnight, 5 minutes walk to Opera House and 7 minutes to Parliament we didn't need to use any transportation during those 3 days. You have supermarkets Spar and Billa both in 3 minutes walking distance. Getting from airport was also easy, just switching to U1 and simply coming out at Karlsplatz. From there also 10 minutes walking distance the big Viennese park. Overall once again I want to warmheartedly thank to the whole team of Mercure Secession for our great stay! Definitely will come back!
