Lovely hotel close to the centre of Vienna, perfect for a family visit of the city. Staff was very friendly, room was clean, bright and quiet. Although breakfast buffet was the same every day, there is still a lot to choose from.

Great value for the price we paid: we had a clean, spacious room with a separate toilet and bathroom which is awesome if you're on a girls' trip :p

Location is good: although a bit outside the old centre, it is close to two metro lines and walkable to the centre (about 10-15 min to Stephansdom).

Very friendly and helpful staff. Free wifi is available.

They also have a kitchenette to cook your own meals. We didn't try out breakfast as we preferred to eat outside.

If I really have to say something bad, we couldn't really open the windows to diffuse the warmth in the room.

Overall, a very enjoyable stay and I would definitely recommend it.

The Hotel is very well located and the staff is excellent. It is not in the centre of the historic town however the metro stop is only 2 minutes away and it takes only 20 minutes to be right in the centre of the City. It has a nice sitting area, with a pool table, and a kitchen that all guests can use to cook, store their goods or even do a washing machine! I really enjoyed my stay. The room was big, clean and warm with a really good shower...what else can we ask for?? I would definitely go back!

A family room is a regular room with a bunk bed (don't expect the upper bed will be prepared. They are not allowd to prepare it because of safety laws...). Breakfast is o.k. but you will have to pay for any coffee from the machine (espresso, capuccino ect.). I think they should not charge for that. There is WiFi but it is very slow. The hotel is very close to the metro station. Going with kids was very easy.

Dear Efrat C,

Thank you very much for your feedback.
First, we are sorry that you were not satisfied with our service. We really appreciate your feedback and it is very useful for us, though our breakfast buffet includes free coffee and it is
'all you can drink'. The coffee machine is only an option.
Concerning the wifi, we are aware about the speed problems and we are working on that.
We are looking forward to welcome you another time at our hotel!

Extremely helpful staff. They recommend a restaurant just around the corner that was perfect when we were too tired to go searching ourselves on arrival. Cheap buffet breakfast that was nothing fancy but couldn't fault it for the value. Left luggage service and bike rental. The rooms are advertised as sound proof and were good enough but still needed earplugs for the noisy street outside - I think we might have been over a bus stop.

My wife and I stayed at the Meininger Sissi in late August. The hotel is clean, modern, and convenient to downtown Vienna. There is both kitchen and laundry facilities, and the reception staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. There is a grocery store right around the corner. Neighborhood feels safe, and comes alive at night with a number of local bars and restaurants. Only issue we had with the hotel was noise from the street. The hotel is not air conditioned, and when warm, it is necessary to have he window open. We had a room facing the street, and the loud talking and sound of wheeled luggage on the sidewalk was very disturbing during our stay. Best suggestion is to insist on a room away from the street.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the street

We stayed one night. Well located with a walking distance from city center. New and very clean rooms. No air condion which can be an issue in high summer. We had some noise down at the street.
Overall if you look for a well located hotel with a very reasnoable price and can handle the above issue this a good choise.
