Reviewed 29 May 2014

We stayed at Pentahotel for 2 nights in May. It was exactly what we expected when we walked in from reading other reviews: you check in with a bartender (which was totally fine) and it has a club/lounge-like atmosphere, with disco balls above the bar.

Our room was very comfortable (although the pillows were flat and down, I should've asked for more), with a nice tub. The food at the bar was good, and the breakfast buffet was very substantial and included Cava. We played pool one night, and the bar is open 24 hours, which made checking in at midnight easy.

The hotel's decor is very fun, although a bit much especially for older and more conservative guests and also seems like it's the kind of trendy that won't be cool soon, if not already on its way out.

Overall, though, we enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Enjoyed our stay there this May. Small rooms, but very comfortable beds, and a nice bathroom.
Lobby is fantastic. And breakfast is fabulous! Overall, I would recommend it and I would stay again. The sexy lobby makes up for the not so central location, however you are always only a 10EUR taxi ride from anywhere!

Great location. About a 10 minute walk to the underground train station (trains are easy to use and you are able to navigate to the top tourist attractions in good time, with a little bit of pre-planning). Had to park the car about a 10 minute walk from the hotel (opposite direction to the underground) as they had no parking spaces free (parking here is very expensive). Room was a good size, ensuite a good size, had a large balcony with an okay view of the street. This is a modern hotel, sort of like staying in a nightclub (minus the lound music but doubled up on the decor and lighting). The bed was large, pillows okay, very clean. Service was friendly, the bar is the check-in counter so a little confusing and can be a little chaotic. If you pre-book the breakfast it is 11 euros each if not it's closer to 19 euros. The breakfast was okay. A fair selection but push button machine coffee instead of fresh (not so good). Overall, very good.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Before arriving I had emailed the hotel asking if they operate DCC - dynamic currency conversion. I did not get a definite answer so on checking in I asked the receptionist. He told me they did. I decided to pay for my stay in cash. On arriving back to the UK I emailed to complain about this and was told the hotel does offer DCC but also offers the option of paying in euros alone at the hotel. The manager stated that there must have been a misunderstanding.

So for all you non euro credit card holders check before signing the credit card slip. If you are happy knowing the rate you are getting in your home currency than opt for this option - hotel gets a commission and your credit charge may still charge you foreign conversion fees - if not ask to pay in euros and get the MasterCard/Visa rate and insist on this (MasterCard/Visa state in their rules that the hotel has to give you both options).

The rooms are very small. The pillows are like a lump of lead, and the bath towels are hand towels. There is hardly any English channels. The bathroom is clean with a good power shower, but the thermostat does fluctuate. There is no free wifi in your room.

The location is about 5 mins from the metro and you can walk into vienna proper ( main tourist sights in about 20 mins) passing loads of restaurants. Tip,- walk if you can - the receptionist recommended the metro but you will see a lot more if you walk.

This hotel is fine for a couple of nights but as the rooms are so small and there is hardly any space for your suitcase I would not recommend more. If you are looking for luxury opt for another hotel, if you are looking for a basic hotel which is clean than opt for this hotel.

Hotel location in Vienna center ok. Room appropriate. servis at check in - chaotic and not organized.
Breakfast limited offer, sausage is missed ?
Big negative thing - no parking place in hotel. You have to walk around 10 min from public parking house . ???

Room Tip: Hotel is situated in city that means there is risk of noise in every romm

Dear guest Henri888,

thank you very much for your feedback here on tripdadvisor.
I am sorry to hear that you had to experience a non-organzized check-in. This is not our standard and we are working hard on it that this will not happen anymore.
The the full american breakfast buffet does indeed not have sausages, but it offers a big choice of cold and worm items, also salmon and prosecco will be found on the buffet.
The hotel does dispose of 13 parking spaces, a public underground parking lot is close to the hotel.
It would be my pleasure welcoming you again at the pentahotel Vienna so that we can show you that we can do better.

Kind regards,
Peter Redle

we stayed at this hotel in last February. The hotel was fully booked but we didnt even noticed. the room was amazing: huge space, comfortable beds, very clean.
The breakfast was very tasty and didnt cost us a lot. The staff was very helpful. It isn't located in the city center but it's only 5 minutes from the metro so it's still very close,
