“Good, comfortable stay”
Reviewed 30 December 2010

The Hotel Golden Spinne was exactly what we needed - a comfortable and warm place to stay in a good location with a breakfast at a very reasonable price. No, it wasn't outstanding, but at the price we paid, it was perfect. What more could you need?

It was very easy to walk to the centre, and nice to be a bit further out from all the crowds. It was a unique place - very old school, which was kind of neat :) It would be have been fun to get one of the rooms that is done up the way it used to be, but our room was absolutely fine. The bed was slightly hard but I slept fine. I didn't like how we got two single duvets though for a double bed.

The bathroom was very spacious! Lots of place for coats, etc. and a hairdryer as well, which was really helpful.

I could see how you consider this place to be noisy if you had the window open (the train tracks are just below) but it was winter and we hardly ever had the window open.

It was a good place - not amazing, but we didn't expect it to be. It was good - and nice friendly staff who spoke good English. And they let us leave our bags there during the day after check-out even though we were gone most of the day.

Breakfast was decent - good juice, lots of meats and cheeses and rolls and cereals - very typical European breakfasts. But it was filling and tasty.

They also had a computer to use just outside the breakfast room which was handy for us to look up a few last minute things (and check on a few things at home).

The Goldene Spinne has an interesting history, being one of the most renowned bordellos in Vienna in it's golden days, now serving as a middle-class hotel with a friendly staff and a local flair.

POSITIVE ASPECTS
The hotel enjoys an excellent location across the street from the Mitte/Landstraße transport hub, with a mere 15 minute walk to all the downtown sights. The rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. Some rooms are kept in the style of the building's former occupancy. Breakfast, though modest, is served free of charge.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS
Arriving by car is not recommended, as the hotel does not have a garage or parking lot, and finding a free spot can be a chore in this area. Other than a few kiosks at the nearby Mitte/Landstraße station, there aren't many shops and restaurants in the area.

LOCAL TRANSPORT
The Mitte/Landstraße transport hub is located 100m from the hotel, where several trams, local trains, the airport express train and the metro stops. Reaching every corner of the city is very easy.

CONCLUSION
Guests are offered no luxuries other than a bed for the night, but it is nonetheless clean and comfortable. The hotel is suitable for budget travellers, especially those arriving to Vienna via the airport. It is not recommended for business travellers.

I stay here 3 nights with my friend. This hotel was good value for money. Location was good, short walking to old town and subway station. Room was basic hotel room and well cleaned. Small breakfast buffet and computer with internet access was nice extra. I come back when i next time travel to Vienna!

The hotel is in an excellent location near the CAT train to and from the airport, as well as the metro stop. The hotel was very clean and had a great complimentary breakfast. The staff went out of their way to be friendly and help us with directions. The sleep was difficult due to fact that no air conditioning was provided, but if you can handle the heat, it is a fantastic stay!

Very handy location, just around the corner from Wien Mitte train/metro station.
Very friendly and professional staff and spotlessly clean. Was staying in a single room on the 3rd floor with back view, but quite spacious, with big, comfy bed, bathroom nice as well.
Overall, I would highly recommend it and will stay again at this hotel.
