MEININGER Hotel Wien Downtown Sissi

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 March 2014

The hotel is located very near to the city center. The St Stephens Cathedral which is the center of the city is just 15-20 min walk. The nearest underground station (Schottenring underground station) is just 5-7 mins. walk away. The rooms were also good. The staff was very friendly and spoke English.
The breakfast was good but if some more variety had been there then it would have been even better.
But overall we had a good experience and stay.

Location is good quite close to the city centre by underground. Our room was quiet even though lighting was not that great at all. Staff was very helpful, although they could improve.

Limited choice at breakfast buffet, for example eggs are served only during weekends and you pay the same price during the rest of the days.

Wi-Fi connection was terrible during our whole stay and the only reason the staff gave us was because a lot of devices were connected to it. I am still seeing reviews stating problems with Wi-Fi even though the staff said they will fix it and that it's a top priority ...

The room was not cleaned everyday, on the day we left I checked under the beds to make sure we did not forget anything and I was disgusted with what I saw. Sometimes they did not change our towels and on our last night they did not give us any towels at all and said they ran out.
Bottomline: I would not recommend this place especially for the price we paid!

Hello Lorii,

Thank you for your review.
Only with your help we can improve ourselfs more and more.

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.
We also spoke to our housekeeping and we are very sorry for the inconvenience but this is not our standard.

Your are welcome at any time at any of our MEININGER Hotels again.


Your Meininger team.

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*

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,

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.
