“Great hotel 1 block from the Inner Stadt”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

This hotel is very classy and comfortable. The rooms are just right for however many people in your party. Very nicely decorated. Staff that are knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast alone is worth the trip. Huge by European standards. Should even satisfy the most demanding American travelers. It is also just a short walk across the river to the Inner Stadt where most of Vienna's historic treasures are.

Room Tip: Rooms on the courtyard have a decent view without any street noise.

Hotel is clean, quiet, located 10 minutes walk from the center. 2 minute walk from the Metro
Courteous service from service providers.
Allowed us early check in and late check out.
I want to commend especially the receptionist Rainald M. Egerth
That his recommendation was helpful and gave excellent service.
The room was a bit small but clean and very comfortable heated.
I'm sure I'll be back to this hotel.

We stayed here just before Christmas and although it is definitely not the most modern or "boutique" hotel out there, I would highly recommend it primarily because the reception staff are tremendously friendly and helpful and because it is very clean and great value for money. Breakfast is also really good. The only negative thing is that the walls between the rooms are paper thin so if this is likely to bother you or you don't have earplugs then you might want to think about whether you stay here. I would stay again (I have earplugs).

I went i this hotel during a business trip in Vienna. Very centrally located, high quality rooms and very good breakfast. The price also was excellent. The service personnel is extremely kind and speaks italian. Free wifi in the rooms... all these are good features for a business trip.

Location excellent.Breakfast fantastic! Would highly recommend this hotel. Good value for money. Very easy to access subway and get around Vienna. Is a little difficult to locate from the street, but easy access to the subway more than made up for this. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

All of the reviews I have read are accurate in that the service, breakfast and value are outstanding. The furnishings, carpets and linens are all a bit worn. I stayed in a single room, which may account for this. The room was very clean, so the shabby but not chic of the room was tolerable. What was a bit more difficult was the noise. I could hear my neighbours conversation and the sound of water rushing every time the upstairs neighbours used their bath. Overall, I recommend this hotel given its price and outstanding service.
