“Too far out to be practical and ants.... In winter?”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

First a warning to 'Groupon' users - Beware that you are obliged to buy dinner and breakfast here at a rate of 30 and 10 Euros per person whether you eat it or not.

Location - Waaaay out there in the sticks. A good 20-minute train ride and another 20 minutes walk from the centre of Vienna.
Situated in a quiet residential area with plenty of free parking should you require it.
Round and about - A restaurant/beer stube next door, another on the corner and a restaurant across the street plus a wine Keller not far away so plenty of choices for local eating and drinking.
Building - Appears to be an old coaching Inn. The main entrance is certainly large enough to take a mail coach and sadly this is where you get you first impression of the place. I say this because it smells of stale cooking as the kitchen for the restaurant vents directly into it.
Rooms - We stayed in a kind of annex, which was comfortable and warm and was very clean and well kept. The bathroom was a good size for the size of the room. There were tea and coffee facilities, a TV and music system. There were however, quite a few ants crawling around the floor. They did not bother us but some might not like them. I could not see where they were coming from and was amazed to see them in winter with temperatures well below freezing.
Breakfast - Is taken in the main hotel building and was fresh and plentiful comprising of continental style fayre.
(I have reviewed the hotel restaurant separately)
Conclusions - A nice enough place but just too far out to be practical.

Reviewed 28 October 2010

We happened on this hotel by serendipity. Unable to stay at the Hotel Cortina down the road we were able to stay the night here. What a find! Reasonable rates and we had more than a room - it was an apartment with plenty of room and a big bathroom (heated floor) bath and separate shower . Two pillows each and a tea/coffee maker ( no such facility in any other hotel in our travels through Germany, Austria and Czech Republic - standard in Australia I might add.)
This delightful suburb is a tourist free zone (so far) and the hotel has a restaurant next door with typical Austrian dishes at reasonable prices. Up the road are several supermarkets with a new Spar being built. Even a cute church if you feel the need. You catch the bus to the train station (Ober St Veit) so if you can read a timetable you won't have to do much walking at all to get home again. Car parking is free on the street with no time limits. Staff are friendly and helpful and English is spoken.
