Conveniently located just the other side of the Danube Canal and about 4 minutes walk to metro line/trams at Schwedenplatz which will pretty much get you anywhere you want to go in the city. 10-15 minutes walk gets you to St Stephen's Cathedral in the centre. Overall, we found this to be a great location for our sight-seeing stay. Rooms...

Really nicely located and quite central as well. Good connection to airport. Personal is friendly, even if they forgot about baby crib we asked for.Great breakfast. Really overall look of the place. Sound isolation could be better. Had some crazyness happening on higher floor - sounded like we are in centre of battlefiled

I loved the hotel. Good staff, good breakfast and good room. Very clean room and bathroom. Personally i prefere doble bed but was twin bed. Its a classic but simple hotel. I recommend it and i am able to return if I return Vienna.

The hotel was nice, friendly staff and decent breakfast on offer. The rooms are cosy and comfortable but the walls are thin and noise gets in easily. I was woken a couple of times by the staff hoovering outside

Room was spacious with good washroom. The breakfast buffer was outstanding, with many choices. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful (I heard one staff person speak 4 languages conversationally -- English, German, Italian and French.) Printed my boarding pass from my computer to a printer in the lobby. The cost was quite reasonable for all of this. The...

The hotel was lovely. The staff great and helpful. The breakfast buffet is excellent (above and beyond - they'll make you eggs of your preference if you didn't want the scrambled) and the coffee something to look forward to every morning.

The walls are like paper. I had a severely distressed child next door which meant sleeping was impossible. You hear absolutely everything from next door. Receptionists have a minimalist approach to assisting visitors. They simply bombard you with leaflets and you best be on your way. Not good enough. Breakfast average. Location fantastic. The building itself is very impressive. But...

Lovely Hotel, with kind, friendly and helpful staff. Good location near Shwedenplatz underground/tram and bus stations and near the river excursions base. Good breakfast, plenty of choice. Made our 4 nights in Vienna a relaxing and very pleasurable trip. We stayed in Room 313, very quiet.

Stayed for five nights. The hotel is well-placed near transport hubs, cafes etc..Breakfast is abundant and delicious! Rooms are very comfortable; I did note that the walls are thin, but unless your next door is having a riotous party that isn't a problem: we slept well, undisturbed. All the staff are to be commended for their unfailing cheeriness and 'bonhomie'...

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The name already reveals much about the smart Hotel City Central’s advantages. The central location near the 1st District, the historic centre of Vienna, coupled with the employees’ typical Viennese charm and a perfect price-performance ratio, distinguish this hotel. Behind the stylish facade, guests find a perfect refuge for their stay in Vienna. 58 rooms and three individual apartments in a nearby building are all convincing thanks to modern comforts such as air conditioning, FLAT TV with Sky programs, and WLAN (free of charge). A special attraction is the Winter Garden with its pyramid-shaped glass roof where a rich and varied breakfast is served. A comfy lobby bar assures guests’ further well-being; covered parking spaces are also available. ... more   less
