I wrote thie review having in mind that we're dealing with a 4-star rated hotel. My first impression of the hotel was not exactly the best, but it got improved afterwards. That "negative" first impression occured because the hotel is having a secondary building which is not mentioned on the website of the hotel (by the way, this is not quite ok) where they wanted to accomodate me. Based on one review which I have read here, I have refused this offer and asked for a room in the building with the reception and the restaurant. There was no problem in getting a new room.
The room: large enough, with a nice flat TV, a really efficient air conditioner, a large wardrobe, a nice and efficient mini-fridge, a large enough working desk (I was in Vienna for business purposes), free-of-charge coffee and tea and a king size bad :D. The negative aspects of the room were that part of the furniture was painted blue (personally, I would rather have it in a warmer colour), the power sockets were not so well distributed inside the room (I haven't been able to find them, I had to ask for help at the receptionist and the receptionist, a young asian lady, was very nice and she helped me instantly with this issue) and the working desk was quite noisy, it was creaking.
The bathroom: that was really a large one (circa 3,5 x 2,5 meters), with two sinks (i didn't understand why is there a need to have two sinks...), a WC and, surprise, just a shower cabin. I would have preffered a bath tube or so, but there was only the shower cabin. At least, there was hot water available at any moment and the housekeeping staff was every day taking very good care that the room and the bathroom were clean and that there are enough soap, shampoo and toilet paper.
The Internet connection: there is no extracharge for it and it is quite a decent connection. Not the best, but definitely a good one. You only need to get from the receptionist a password which you can use for connecting and that's it. I have got a 7-days password, but I suppose that other types of passwords are also available.
The breakfast: the breakfast room could have been a little larger, but it also does the job in the actual configuration. It is nicely decorated and the furniture inside it shows good-taste. The food selection is not the "richest" which I have seen, but for sure it is a fair one and the quality of the products is a very good one. The only negative aspect which I have found was the milk, which is not natural milk, but it is made from milk powder. I consider it a negative aspect because I am quite a milk consumer and I always choose for the natural product. The breakfast restaurant also has a kitchen, so you can also ask for some other cooked products (fried eggs, for instance). The breakfast staff is very nice and always ready to help and to serve you.
As other people have said before me, the hotel is in the close proximity of some of the public transport stations: subway line U1 (Nestroyplatz station), subway line U2 (Taborstrasse station), bus line 5A.
Overall, it was a nice experience. I consider the offer of this hotel as a fair one, I would come again to stay at this hotel and I would also recommend it to other people.
