This hotel has everything you would expect so it definitely deserves the 3 stars: it is very clean, modern, quiet and well located: the tram line - 43, which takes you to the center- Schotentor is just outside and there are various supermarkets (Billa plus Lidl just just next to the hotel); it takes about 1 hour from the airport (2 trains and the tram 43 would be the best choice as it is much cheaper than taking a taxi).
The room was warm and of a decent size for a double one (although the bed was not a double bed but rather 2 mattresses joint together), the temperature was easy to adjust and very important for summer visits- it has air conditioner.
The staff is helpful and friendly.
The only downside would be the wireless internet part: you only have free access at the reception where there are 2 computers and a printer, otherwise you have to pay 3 EUR/h and it is rather slow.
I would definitely recommend this hotel as it is good value for money but I wouldn't necessarily recommend visiting Vienna, at least not more than once in a lifetime, especially if you come from UK as it is very expensive, prices are unreasonably high for shopping and dining, the attractions are not properly marked, or not marked at all and if you don't have a guide or proper knowledge you cannot rely on people's directions, as they are very bad and most of them don't speak English! Also the GBP is lower the EUR at their exchange and that's because they add commission so DON'T BUY GBP from them!!!
