Senator Hotel Vienna
Ranked #192 of 361 Hotels in Vienna
Reviewed 25 September 2013

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. We booked 4 nights with breakfast included, in the late august. We stood in a standard double room, quite spacious for our needs, very clean, but with twin-beds (unfortunately). We had wireless in all the room, which was perfect, and downstairs, near the reception, there were 2 Apple PCs, which can be very handy if you want to print boarding passes for instance. Also, near the elevator, there was a vendor machine where you can buy drinks and some snacks, which can be very useful during the weekend, where all nearby stores were closed, even the Lidl supermarket near the hotel. The breakfast was very diversified, no complaints at all in regards of that. The hotel is close to Tram station which was convenient for local transport system. Overall, i would recommend it for a trip to Vienna, due to its convenient price, cleanliness and kindness of personnel.
The only incident that we experienced is that our iron brought from home, was taken by the person who was responsible to clean the room, most likely supposing that it belonged to the hotel. We managed to recover it after all, with no major conflicts with the staff. But other than that, no other issues or complaints during our stay.

Stayed for 7 nights. The hotel is clean, very quiet and the rooms are comfortable with everything you'd need. The staff are friendly and the location, although not central, has great tram connections to get you to the metro and on to wherever you need in Vienna.

Two minor issues. The room temperature - it was too hot, and even with windows open or air-con it was very warm overnight. Also, couldn't get out of the hotel entrance in the morning, as drivers for tour parties were stood smoking in the doorway... an annoyance more than a problem.

Overall very good "value for money" option for staying in Vienna.

We've just visited Hotel Senator again (after first visiting it in 2011). The hotel is still impressive given its price range.

The rooms are very clean, modern and spacious - this is true for all rooms except the ones on the 5th floor overlooking Gschwandnergasse, which are smaller.
Rooms don't have a minibar or a tea kettle (I think these are present at 4* hotels only), but they do have LCD TVs, comfy beds and a safe.

Breakfast is in line with other 3* hotels - scrambled eggs, pancakes, ham, bacon, baloney, yoghurt, fruits, cheese, cereals (including whole wheat cereals), milk, pastries, jams, some bread and a small selection of juices.
If you need to get some water or snacks you can go to Lidl (which is in the same building), or go by tram 43 towards Schottentor to Billa. Lidl is a low-cost retailer (which means you'll find decent quality products at really low prices), while Billa in a standard retailer which also has higher quality products. We bought water from Lidl and snacks from both Billa and Lidl.

As other reviewers mentioned, a great thing about the hotel is its position - it's not really close to the center, but you can get any major attraction in about 15 minutes. I've included all the popular transportation options in a previous review, but will reiterate them here:

- Take tram 43 towards Schottentor in order to get to the city centre. It takes about 15 minutes. The tram stop is about 50m to the right (as you get out of the hotel). The station name is Rosensteingasse. At Schottentor all the major attractions from the city center are within walking distance - Votivkirche, The Parliament, Hofburg, Buttlerfly house, Albertina, Opera, Natural History Musem etc.

- Take tram 9 towards Westbanhof if you want to get to the Westbanhof train station or the famous shopping street Mariahilfer strasse. Tram 9 shares the stop with tram 43.

- Take bus 10A if you want to get to the Schonbrunn castle. You have to walk about 5 minutes to the station (go left once you get out of the hotel) until you get to the Wattgasse / Hernalser Hauptstrasse intersection.

We spent 2 nights in Vienna and found our hotel very clean and convenient. Reception staff is helpful and location was great. Connections to trams is excellent which takes you to the city centre in 15 minutes. Hotel breakfast was priced too high but there is a supermarket Liedl next door which serves hot croissants /strudels which are very filling. Would have been nice to have a fridge and a kettle in the room. The only downside was that the shops close very early by 6:30 pm so bear that in mind. All in all , a great stay !

We spent 5 nights in beautiful Vienna with our 12 year old daughter & my 78 year old Dad. Hotel very clean, comfortable & modern. Its situated on a tramline with frequent (every 2 mins!) trams into the City centre. Reception staff were helpful & efficient - we bought our Vienna travel cards & booked a trip easily & without any problems.
Hotel Restaurant only does breakfast which was buffet style but had a good varied choice. There is also a bar with reasonable prices & not a bad choice of drinks. There are plenty of cafes nearby & a lovely Greek Restaurant - The Appollon - around 10-15 mins walk away - fabulous food at very good prices.
Overall very pleased with Senator - did exactly what we needed it to do!

Just one little thing - would be nice to have tea & coffee making facilities in rooms - just a suggestion

Room Tip: Rooms at front are a bit noisier as over look busy road but double glazing is good & keeps most...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room was a great size and very clean. By far the best beds we have slept in comfort wise on our 10 week trip so far.

The hotel is right next door to a little supermarket and there is a laundry mat, bank and post office nearby too. Public transport is a breeze with the tram out front and it also can connect you to the U6 train line if you are coming in by international train.

The only thing that was that there is no mini fridge if you want to store a cold drink and there wasn't any tea or coffee making facilties in our room. Other than that it was great! Would come back to stay again.
