“Lots of room”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We stayed in a Junior Suite, which has a lot of space to spread out in (a living room, plus a lofted bedroom with a half bath). As other reviewers note, this hotel is very close to public transportation, making it easy to get around the rest of the city. Reception and the bellman were friendly. My only complaint is that the safe is not laptop compatible and that one day while we were taking a nap housekeeping came in to "check the minibar" and didn't leave when I said that we hadn't used the minibar (and, thus, in my mind didn't need to be checked).

Great hotel with fabulous breakfast which was included in our rate. My sister and I shared a Junior Suite on top floor with a small balcony where we could see over the rooftops of Vienna. the room had a sitting area downstairs and then up the stairs to bedroom area and included all amenities such as kettle and hairdryer, etc. It was lovely to relax with a glass of wine in the sitting area before heading off to bed up the stairs!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location could not be better as within walking distance of all the Hofburg and Opera House and museums just around the corner. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: We had room on top floor and was quite warm so we kept the window open. If you had room on lower fl...

This hotel is conveniently situated for public transport to enable you to see all the sights of this city. All the staff are most helpful and pleasant. I have never had such a varied choice for breakfast and the food was well presented, fresh and tasty. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. Yes you do have to pick up a new password for the free wi-fi but this is not a problem as there are plenty of sheets to pickup at reception. You don't even have to ask they are on the desk for you to pick up. I did not find this a chore or a problem! I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I have stayed already twice in the Hotel de a France ,each time for three days and nights.
We have enjoyed each and every time and we shall come a third time hopefully in the not too distant future.
The room we have had on both times was the same. A real pleasure. So, was the help extended by the staff. The breakfast is fabulous . A real treat. All in all, an Hotel that deliver and adds to the real pleasure of spending some time in Vienna.

Our second visit to this hotel which is well placed being next to a metro station and a short walk to the Hofburg palace. Room was again very large. Breakfast is excellent with a wonderful range of hot and cold food all of a high quality. service is always good.

Only complaint was the free Wifi which is for 24 hours only. Surely it should be for the full length of your stay. As it is it goes against stopping many nights.

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!!)
