“Ideal location”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

We recently spent four nights at this hotel. We chose it due to its keen prices and location close to the Wien Mitte station and its relative proximity to the Innere Stadt of Vienna. Take the S7 train from the airport rather than the CAT as this is only 4 Euros each way and stops within 150 metres of the hotel. Take the Stadtpark exit from the underground station, turn right at street level and the hotel is just across the road.
In truth, the hotel is quite basic but the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was adequate in the rather small breakfast area. When booking, I asked for a room overlooking Stadtpark and was delighted to get this. The views from our 4th floor room were excellent, particularly at night when the Stefansdom was floodlit across the park. The room was smallish but comfortable and the bathroom was large with a corner spa bath. The downside of our room with a view was that it also overlooked the railway and there was noise from this all day and for much of the night!
From the hotel we were able to walk to the main sights in Vienna, including the Cathedral, the Hofburg Palace, the Belvedere, Karlskirche, Opera and Naschmarkt.
Hotels close to railway stations can be rather seedy but this was not. In fact, its location between the Intercontinental and Hilton illustrates what a great position it had. There are not many restaurants in the immediate vicinity but you can pick up food from the Spar supermarket at the station where there are a number of places to eat there if you have not had your main meal during the day.
All in all, a good place to stay if you want excellent value for money. However, do watch out for vacuum cleaners which seem to be left close to stairways on each floor!

Goldene Spinne was the cheapest 3 star hotel in Vienna when we were looking for a place to spend a night in the capital of Austria before a flight early in the morning.

Usually I try to choose hotels of a bit upper quality and this time I worried a lot about the place. However, I need to recognize that the worries were groundless.

Let's start with the location: it's absolutely unbeatable. 5 minutes from the Ring across a beautiful central city park. Don't be afraid of a railway nearby the hotel, we have not heard a single train's noise during the night.

The hotel itself is of course unpretentious, but what would you expect paying EUR 60 for a night in central Vienna?

It's funny, but the the bathroom seemed to be bigger than the living room itself. The room was very clean and a sleep quality was fine.

What I really didn't like at all bout this hotel it's a dining room. I don't know about the meal's quality, but the interiors there are really gloomy.

I was also very disappointed when I asked a guy on the reception to call us a taxi to the airport equiped with a mobile payment card terminal. The guy ensured us that he would take care of that. Can you imagine how I was surprised when already at the airport a taxi driver told me that he doesn't accept the cards?! This situation really spoiled my impression about the hotel.

At first glance it does not seem much of anything. But we got a beautiful room with huge and super comfortable bad! The room was large enough for a couple, with a sufficiently large wardrobe. Absolutely excellent was bathroom with large bathtub, two sinks in a massive marble slab and a small balcony to the courtyard. All in the style of thirties.
Breakfast buffet was served in a small poor room, but the quality and range of food, as well as service, was very good. There is no air-condition, no wi-fi connection, no minibar. But if you need just perfect place to sleep close to the city centre, you got it!

I have got the feeling that is a hotel by the hour, but we did not have any problem.
We stayed one night because we wanted to be close to the train for the airport.
No complain, but the hotel does not have air-condition, so if you go there in the summer you may have problem because you cannot open the windows due to noise from the trains.

We slept only one night at this hotel but it was a very pleasant stay. The hotel is clean with fine furniture , the room is small but comfortable , the bathroom is also small but clean with a large shower cabin. The best part is the bed, wich is huge, around 2 meters wide. We had a good sleep there. The breakfast buffet is good and variate . The location is very good, close to Opera House and city center. Pay attention for the hotel doesn't have it's own parking , but we parked our car on the street 50 meters away from the main entrance and all was good.

Room Tip: If you need a good sleep choose a backyard room, is mor quiet. If you want to have a nice view from...

If you are not spending a lot of time in the hotel and just need a place to sleep, this is it! A small clean hotel with large breakfast and super friendly staff. Right next door to the main station Wien Mitte so you can take a train anywhere as well as the shuttle to the airport, so easy! 7 minutes walking distance to the Vienna Center and Hundertwasser Museum. Absolutely loved it!

Located just 300m away from City Airport Terminal station. Just 15 minute walk to Opera House or St Stephans Cathedral. Rooms are refurbished and very clean. I chose double room for Euro 80 per night. Good size, comfortable bed, clean linen and toilet. Reception available 24 hours. No WI FI but free internet available in mezzanine floor. Breakfast was basic but good. I highly recommend due to convenient location and quality rooms.
