Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

Just came back from my trip in Vienna, stayed in this hotel for 3nights, the room was spacious and clean, bathroom was nice, even had a decent sofa to accompany the room. Improvements could be the lights could be brighter, was very dim even when I had all the lights on. The staff was alright, helpful most of the time but wouldn't hurt to smile a little bit more and attitude could be warmer. When I first arrived for check in, my room was not ready until 2pm so had to leave luagage in the baggage area downstairs in a locked room, thinking the staff would put my bags for me but gave me the key to do it myself considering Wasent sure where to go. Overall the experience was good, 3/5*

Stayed February 2014, travelled solo

I've stayed at the hotel 4 nights. The room was clean but quite small.
The location isn't the best one but if you like to walk to get to know the city then it's a good choice.
The kitchen for common use is well equipped and clean.

Dear natalia S,

thank you for your review.
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Meininger Hotel Wien Downtwon Sissi.
To go to the city you need to walk about 10 minutes. If you just need a supermarket, you can take that one which is just around the corner.

every thing was as expected of a buget hotel,it was clean friendly and new condition. with all this said there was a big disappointment with the room. we were given a room with only a ceiling window that felt very claustrophobic and dark (and the lighting is also very dim) although we booked well in advance. the pictures show the double room with windows and no notice about this was given to us. for this reason alone we would not come back to this hotel or hotel chain for it made us feel a bit deceived.

Room Tip: make sure you are not given the rooms with ceiling windows

We stayed here for 5 nights in January! The location of the hotel is a great advantage! 3 minutes walking from the station! The reception were excellent! All of them spoke English fluently, very helpful and kind! The room was very good, spacious enough! Regarding the cost of the breakfast it is 5.90 per person/per day! Don't forget to buy Vienna Card for 19.90 euros per person it includes 72 hours transportation and various discounts for museums, shops, restaurants etc! The only thing that in our opinion need a bit improvement is the housekeeping! Overall, a great value for money!

Good location, metro nearby, 20-25 min walking to Prater district. Modest, but modern rooms. Friendly and helpful. Breakfast quite skimpy, would rather not recommend. Overall -very good value for money.

Staff was not very friendly...room was quiet and very clean, but light in the room was inadequate. This made the room VERY depressing at night and this is a serious dinadequateisadvantage. The beds and pillows were uncomfortable and there was no fridge in the room. Free WiFi but very poor signal...

Hello Milka D

Thank you for your review.

We are aware of the momentarily poor wifi signal, and have made it a top priority. The issue with the lightning is also on the list.
I am sad to hear that you had a bad experience with our staff, they have in previously rewies quite often been mentioned as beeing very friendly.

For younger children we have babybeds, in case that is needed. Just ask at the reception.

Your Meininger team.

Quiet and clean. The bed is confortable. The breakfast is open buffet and various. The hotel is near the subway in a nice neighbourhood and near the city center. Very close is a Billa if you want to buy food or water at a normal price considering that Vienna is a bit expensive.
