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!
