“Excellent location and staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

The hotel is very clean and the staff is excellent. They have a great breakfast included in your room rate which offered a great variety of breakfast foods.
For convenience to the major sites in Vienna, you couldn't ask for a better location. Literally about 50 feet from the front door is a major subway station with access to several different bus and subway lines.

Room Tip: Our room was right on the Main Street in front of the hotel and wasn't noisy with the windows op...

Very good hotel, in a good location for a tourist in Vienna. Only minor complaint is the bedding - very meager pillows - and the free wifi signal was too weak to connect in our room, which was located in a corner section of the building. I went to the lobby to connect to wifi. No big deal, but.... Other than that, the hotel was very good, especially for our family of four. The breakfast buffet is excellent. I would easily recommend this hotel. (But hey....give us some bed pillows with support!!)

A truly great hotel - our five days included breakfast and, boy what a breakfast! I guess that if you asked for caviar they would have provided it. Only 12-15 mins walk into the city centre and restaurants galore in the vicinity (try 'Yamm' for a sensational, self-service vegetarian cuisine).

After reading all the reviews, I booked a junior suite. Our room was 2 floors and had 2 bathrooms and was very quiet at night. It was in a newer section it seems and was clean and comfortable. I do agree the towels are miserable and the wifi is a nuisance as your code only lasts 24 hrs and than you need a new one but it is free. The rooms are priced very reasonable for the location and what you get. I prefer more luxurious hotels but was here for a meeting and we spent very little time in our room. So overall this is a decent hotel and if you book a basic room it may not be as good as the one I did. This is a hotel that you get what you pay for. Also the hotel staff was always helpful and the breakfast was very large and varied as it was included.

We had an excellent stay for 3 nights. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Location is great - all forms of public transport on the doorstep and within easy walking distance for the touristy sights. Breakfast room was lovely and the variety of food on offer was plentiful. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to our friends.

I wanna say a huge thanks to all staff of this great hotel. They are very helpful, always try to make your staying in this hotel amazing. There is perfect breakfast with fresh fruits, great choice of cheese, good coffee etc. you will not regret if you include breakfasts in your charge. In the evenings after your stuffs or shopping or busy day in Vienna you can relax in the bar with very pleasant bar-man and amazing pianist who will try to guess your favorite music and play it for you! And the last thing... Unfortunately our staying in this hotel was interrupted by dreadful news from Russia - our closest relative died in Moscow and we had to came back to Russia sooner than we planned, so staff and management of this hotel were so kind that they returned our money for unused days which were payed before. Thank you for your understanding, we will come back to Vienna and definitely choose Hotel de France.

My partner and I had a happy week in Vienna from 25 till 31October 2013.
I believe our experience with the hotel was very good. We booked through www.olotels.com and got deluxe room for 100 eur per night, breakfast included. It was a very reasonable price which became obvious when we saw the room and tried breakfast next morning.

We arrived to the hotel around 11 a.m. and got a room in 10 min. Excellent! It was my partner's birthday and we discovered a delicious came when came back to the hotel from a city tour. Nice touch. Thank you!
The room was big and comfortable, cosy and a bit old fashioned. TV was old, but perfectly fitted the interior. It was in a walking condition so nothing to complain about.
The breakfast was to die for and I missed lunch and had only a light dinner after all delisios staff we had in the morning.
The only complain was a temperature in the room. It was very hot, but air con was not adjustable and the rooms’ windows faced a nosy road.
We definately recommend the hotel if you manage to get a good price.
