Hotel Fuerst Metternich was a bit of a disappointment. We booked the hotel because we were impressed by the exterior and heard that the bar was lively. First off, there isn't much of a lobby and was unimpressed by the general decor of the hotel. It seemed as if the place has seen better days.
We were willing to overlook this until we got to our room. Honestly, it looked like a half of a step above a Motel 6. The bed was uncomfortable, the overhead lighting was unflattering, and the view was of a light shaft. In the bathroom, the shower nozzle was in the middle of the tub so whenever you turned on the shower, water sprayed everywhere. Our sink was clogged when we got there. They fixed it after we told them twice.
The saving grace of the hotel was the bar, Barfly. It was quite fun and had an astonishing variety of whiskeys and rum. A bit smokey but the crowd was friendly. If you like shopping (which we don't), then the location would be ideal for you. The hotel is located in the heart of the shopping district.
Having said that, we wouldn't recommend the hotel to others. Yes, it's a budget hotel. But I think you could find a better place in beautiful Vienna to stay with the same price.
