“Good quality value hotel”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Enjoyed a pleasant two night stay in summer 2014. Hotel was located within walking distance of town or easily accessible from public transport. Rooms were fine, good amount of space comfortable beds (no sheets provided) however no air conditioning - meaning we needed to open the windows all night which let in street noise (which wasn't much). But otherwise a very good stay and I would recommend it as a good value location.

Honestly we didn't even stay here. We got to he hotel in the afternoon and it was nearing 100 degrees outside. This hotel has no air conditioning. The windows only cracked open, and we were up on the fourth floor, so it was easily over 100 in our room. We went downstairs and asked for a fan, they gave us one that was so small that when we plugged it in. We had to be sitting right in front of it to even feel a breeze. Best of all, we had to pay 10 euros for that crap! The hotel says it has parking, but they only have about 18 spaces, and you can't book one in advance. Fortunately, there is a parking garage within easy walking distance. Honestly, I think this hotel would be just fine if it wasn't sweltering outside, but ultimately, not a place to stay in the summer.

Hello!

Thank you very much for your feedback! It is always good to know the opinion of our guests in order to improve our services.
We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay here and left so soon. Our hotel unfortunately does not have air conditioning, neither do we advertise having one. We offer the fans you mention - there must have been a misunderstanding as the 10 euros you paid was just a deposit, which means that you must have gotten your money back after returning the fan.
As for the parking - the prior reservation is necessary - that is probably the reason you weren´t able to book a parking place at the spot.
We are very sorry about the impression you have about our hotel and we would be pleased if you visited one of our houses so we can convince you of our qualities.

Best wishes from Vienna

Really glad we stayed here, I arrived late at night and felt fine walking around the neighbourhood on my own as a young woman. The directions on the hotel's website of how to get find them via public transport from the airport were really clear. Once you find the right exit to come out of (if travelling on U4 from the airport then you need to go down a level to find the U2 and the correct exit) then it's a really simple short walk.

There are a few nice cafes nearby and such a short walk to the subway it's all really well connected. The hotel rooms are really large and had all the basics we needed, as did the bathroom. Everything was clean and for a big city the noise level was fine - you're always going to get some noise! We paid for the breakfast which was really nice, or they also have a kitchen if you'd prefer to make your own. Really nice stay, would definitely recommend!

Just had 4 nights here,it.s nice to stay in a hotel that isn't on a busy road. Room was quite spacious ,clean and comfortable beds. Breakfast when I originally booked was advertised as 5.90 Euros but it was 7.90. Euros. It's a good selection and eat/drink as much as you like. Staff were friendly too.

Room Tip: I had a room overlooking courtyard which was 4 rooms with a separate door leading to it. Reasonably...

We booked a triple room in the hotel through Budgetplaces.com for a very reasonable price. Arriving at the hotel was not difficult as it is only about a 5 minute walk away from the Herminengasse exit of the Schottenring u-bahn/metro station.

The room did not actually match its description - the description of the room at the point of booking was that it comprises single beds. The actual room was identical to a quadruple room I had previously stayed in in Meininger Amsterdam - two single beds joined together with a double-decker bunk bed. We did not mind this difference, and everything else was good. The room was spacious, with ensuite toilet facilities - the shower and toilet were separated which was good. There was a television, table and chair, and towels were provided. The shower was good - hot water was readily available and water pressure was excellent. Everything was very clean. We did not have breakfast at the hotel, but it looked like it was the standard buffet spread.

The only slight downside is the WiFi - the hotel, as with other Meininger branches, uses a username and password system which you can get from the hotel reception. But it apparently gets overloaded very quickly according to the reception, so trying to connect to the WiFi is really a matter of luck and it may take many many repeated attempts before you establish a successful connection. This can be frustrating if you need the internet urgently. However, once connected, the internet worked fine.

The location of the hotel is good - near the metro station, and there are some restaurants and bakeries nearby from which you can get a meal or breakfast. It is walkable to most attractions but note that the walk may be more than 30-40 minutes.

I would recommend this hotel as the rooms and location were excellent for its price.
