This is a recently opened (2008) family-run pension located in a quiet street intersecting a major street (Mariahilfer Strasse). One has to walk 10 minutes to the major street for public transport. The neighborhood seems quiet and peaceful.
As it is family owned and relatively new, one can say that it's not very professionally operated. If one expects to arrive outside the core hours (8:00 to 12:30 and 16:30 to 21:00), one has to notify the pension owner in order to check-in. When we arrived at the hotel, it was around 1pm. There was a guy (seems like the owner) standing in front of the entrance smoking, and he let us waited for 15 minutes while he was enjoying his cigarette. The check-in process took another 15 minutes. We had to pay to full amount upon check-in and the receipt was in MS Word format. We got a big room at the ground floor with a bathroom that has a bathtub. The room is newly funished, furniture are new but they look like those from Ikea :). For the price of 72 eur per night, I think it's a good value. We stayed in the pension for a total of 4 nights. We would have been satisfied if not because of an unpleasant incident on the last night of our stay. Around 11 pm that night, we heard loud noises (music, laughters) from outside. As I was already in my pyjama, I didn't go out of my room but just took a peek from the door. It was the owner with a large group of people (more than 10) in the lobby area. The owner saw me but did not acknowledge me, it seems that they were drinking. We thought maybe they would stop by midnight, but the noise continued past 2 am and I was only able to sleep after they stopped. Given that there are many rooms at the ground floor and our room is not the closest to the reception area, I think we were not the only ones who got affected by the noise. We felt very disappointed about the lack of professionalism of this pension.
