There are three basic services I expect a hotel to provide to its guests: a good night's sleep, a refreshing (morning) shower and some feeling of hospitality. Hotel Victoria provides nothing of it all. Although I booked a suite (turning out to be a big room with a closet in the middle to divide the sleeping area from the sitting area) on the fifth floor, I haven't slept a wink for two nights in a row. The rooms are not soundproof and the Centralbahnplatz is the turning platform for the streetcars which make sharp screeching sounds as good as 24 on 24 hours. Terrible! The bath rooms are old and tiny. And at breakfast, the waitresses were more interested in getting home as soon as possible and consequently in returning the buffet to the kitchen rather than satisfying the hotel guests. A terrible experience in an otherwise charming city!
