Snagged this hotel on Hotwire, not sure what I would get by putting in a price range. Depending on how "needy" you are, this Hotel could work for you. This was quite a walk from the train station with luggage, and tricky to find on foot. However, once we found the location, we realized it was an easy walk to get onto the metro line, and many shops and restaurants. There was much construction going on to the front of the hotel, and inside it felt haphazard yet not quite like a Mom and Pop place. The front desk staff in general seemed confused. The neighborhood felt safe, yet there was a seedy section you had to walk through at night if you came from the train station and had to walk to the hotel. Mostly street walkers, beggars, and some odd sorts. We kept to ourselves and walked quickly. The hotel did not reassure us of the safety, as you had to be buzzed into the hotel each time we returned from an excursion. Our room for four was small and looked as if it were carved out of an old house, but still had room for us and all of our belongings. The bathroom was another story, very tiny and no room for personal belongings. We had slow assistance when our room safe suddenly would not respond to our password, help did not arrive until the next day to pop our safe. So much for hiding our cash! We were able to walk to many great cafe's and restaurants, and the Opera District, yet if we were not a younger family, getting to major attractions may have been an issue. The hotel was clean, and older with spiral staircases which were handy when the elevator was not working. We strived to limit our phone usage to when we could get free WIFI, and this hotel did provide a password to use the free WIFI, but it timed out very quickly. Very frustrating considering our other family members were in another hotel. The staff did indeed call a taxi for us for our morning flight to Vienna, and gave us a wake up call. I guess that is something. On my next visit I will not be choosing this hotel.
