“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Very good hotel, they have a nice service, the receptionist are really nice, they give you tips about where to go eat, party, sightsee what ever you need, also the all you can eat breakfast is quite good and the rooms are just amazing. Very clean, you have you re own bathroom in each room, then each bed has its own personal light and a place where you can put your belongings. They also have a kitchen and a washing machine.

Meininger hotel is a nice option to stay when travelling to Vienna. The hotel is pretty new, the room and the commom areas have a cool decoration. Internet wi-fi was free and the staff is really friendly and helpful.

It's close to subway station and there's a tram stop nearby.

Overall, my experience in Meininger was really nice and I though this hotel it's really value for money.

Room Tip: I don't know about the other rooms, but mine was at the top floor and it was really nice, as I h...

We are 2 couples that stayed in 02 to 04 October 2013.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Hannah and Lara that helped us with restaurants and some places to visit.
The rooms are design to be a hostel as well, so in the room are a bunk bed and a double bed, but this is not a problem, because the room are really comfortable, good space, very clean and without hostel mess, and that's what matter.
The breakfast is complete and delicious.
The next U-bahn station is about 10 min walking, and more 5 min by train to get to city, or you can walk about 30 min to city.
There are wi-fi free with good speed.

I was there last year and must say I was rather disappointed. We were 2 but got a 4 person room - which wouldn't have been a problem normally but it was dirty! The room had clearly not been cleaned after the last guests. After reporting this and being promised by the receptionists that it would be cleaned, nothing happened. Wi-fi was quite useless and it was pretty loud, as the place is a hostel. There's nothing wrong with that, except that I went with my mother and wouldn't have chosen a hostel, had I known so..

Room Tip: Breakfast was very nice, book with breakfast! It's cheap and varied!

This is a nice, clean and modern hotel near city center. Staff is very friendly. Free WiFi in the rooms with a good speed.
Hotel is like 15 - 20 min walk to city center but you can take the tube which is a 5 - 10 min walk to different areas in the city.
No safe boxes in the room but you can get your own at the reception for a refundable 5 Euro.

I booked this expecting a hostel but it's much more or a budget but very good hotel. The rooms are very well equipped and clean and modern, and the bar is good for grabbing a beer or coffee. However, it's not the most social of places due to the size, the common area is just the bar area which is great if you are in a group but alone is a bit too big to really meet anyone.

Depending on what you want this is a great place to stay thats not too far from the city centre and easily accessible from transport. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Classic Room for 2 is perfect, it was away from the crowd and has a nice view of the city. At 5.9 euros, their breakfast buffet is worth every cent.

This is the second time in Meininger for me. I'm amazed at how efficiently they run this place. The young front desk staff are happy to help with city information, restaurant recommendations, train info - they have all the answers!
