Recent guest reviews

We booked this hotel the last minute before our visit in Vienna! We were searching for something good and affordable and Novum hotel was more than that! It's next to the U1 station and 3 stops away from the center of Vienna! The rooms were clean and cozy with enough space! The bathroom weren't that big but it was not that much of a problem. I would totally stay again in this hotel.

Stayed here with two friends for two nights on an interrailing trip. The room was nicely decorated with three comfy beds, although it was a bit warm due to the lack of air con (the windows open though so you can cool down that way!). It is really close to the main station and very easy to get into the city centre (2 stops on the U1 line), and you can also walk to the Belvedere palaces from here. Only criticism was that the shower only had a curtain that didn't go the whole way round the tray, so the bathroom flooded, but just ask for extra towels! Would recommend for a short trip.

Nicely decorated hotel, clean rooms. Not too big in size, but it was ok for our one-night stay. Bed was comfortable. The room door was a bit thin so we could hear the noise from the hallway. Hotel staff was nice. The drawback was that our window had no view - it was facing the wall across. The room was very dark. Also, WiFi signal was not strong enough and the connection kept breaking. The location was good - close to highway exit and not too far from the city center - we walked, but there is also a metro stop just around the corner.

My fiancee and I visited Vienna on a four day break and this hotel was perfect for our needs. Although not 'top notch' it suited our holiday requirements. 20 minute walk from city centre, handy for public transport, clean with friendly staff. Taxi journey to airport costing around €30 and about 20 minute journey. As we only used the hotel as a base this was great for us. If you are looking for 5 star accommodation at 3 star price don't book here. We would definitely stay her again as we are planning to return at some point soon.

Hotel has very good location and very good connection to anywhere in Vienna by public transport. Rooms are clean and ok but some equipment maintrnance is needed (shower in my room was broken and it should be replaced I think). Wifi is really very bad, I had to use roaming data all the time. However, price is lower than other hotels in same area, so we had a good value for price. I would recommend this hotel for short stay in Vienna (1-2 nights) for people who seek to be on good location for low price.

When I arrived to the hotel, I discovered that they had put us (I was with two children) into an attic room with no air conditioning - outside temperature was over 30 c, while in the room there must have been even higher. Terrible experience! They offered 10 % (!!!!) refund. I refused and left for a nice nearby hotel with airconditioning, for less money.

If the hotel can't support all the electricity system, shut it down or renovate it. I paid a very high price for this summer trip but have to stay in a sauna room hotel. Staff only say " I'm sorry... but in Austria we had only four weeks time summer so air condition is not necessary " what do you think?????

Location is good but only location, near main train station. Room is very hot. No air conditioning. It's impossible to sleep with opened windows because many noise from the street level. When you close windows, you cooked yourself in this room. No air to breathe. No fridge, no coffee or tea pot. 4 euros bottle of water awaits you at the entrance of room. Water comes out of the shower when taking a bath. The place to clean teeth and wash hands is so small like a box of matches. Wifi does not work. Could not communicate with my family on internet because the connection was terrible. Outlets did not work on the room so we could not charge phones or computer. I will never stay anymore in this hotel and I would never recommend anybody to stay in this hotel, even with the good location. It's too expensive for what it offer or does not offer. Very unpleasant stay. It feel like an extremely expensive hostel. Soundproofing is horrible. You can hear neighbours the whole time.

I think the reviews you see of this place are extremely harsh. We stayed here for 2 nights and it was absolutely fine. 30 second walk from the train station and around a 30 minute walk to the city centre. The reception staff were friendly and helpful , breakfast was nice. The room was quite small but it was clean. The only gripe i have there is no shower curtain so things can get a bit messy in the bathroom. All in all its great for what it is.

Staff were not overly welcoming but the hotel was central to public transport, room was clean and spacious. The only downside was that there was a central coffee pot in reception and it cost 50cents to use, it was placed in an awkward spot and the paper cups were tiny. 1 min from HbF which connects you to the city. Recommend. Wifi is good.
