This is a very, very good hotel. Truly.
Pluses: Clean room and great common areas, comfortably and newly decorated (no tired old upholstered chairs here). Good, solid breakfast. Sweet receptionists, all shifts. Very helpful and patient too.
Possible drawback: Distance from the city. Can't walk it under 45 minutes down crowded streets and while the subway was quick and convenient, it was still another 'step' when you went out. Easy walking distance from the train and subway.
The bathroom was a 'modular' that took up 1/5 of the room and was not too comfortable, though more than adequate. My husband called the shower the 'phone booth' and I called the toilet the 'latrine'. It was like stepping into a closet. Odd, and the plastic walls don't look like they will hold up over time. I guess time will tell. No exhaust fan.
Noisy street late at night and in pre-dawn when grocery store across the street has deliveries. We had a sound machine but had to keep windows open a little for some air, even in October.
Still, we liked the feel of the place very much. It's a conundrum for sure! Worth the rating simply because the people were so nice (which isn't always the case in Vienna for sure!) and because we were comfortable despite the drawbacks.
**If you need to get a taxi and ask reception to order one, specify a NON-SMOKING taxi. Ours was fog-like it was so smoky. Cold out but I had to have windows down. It made for a miserable 35 minute, 40euro drive to airport!!
