Very good for university visit.
If you don't mind 20 minutes (minimum) of walking every time you you go out so it is great if the price is better than a central hotel.
Seperior is nice size, great new bathroom but low water flow.
Breakfast very good!!!
Will come back if visiting the Uni. again.

Room Tip: Room 109 and next to it above the courtyard have cigarette smell and some noise from people at court...

Just slightly off centre, this hotel offers very quiet stays being just off a main road. Everything is of good standard. Rooms of decent size, mini bar, safe, and a very bright bathroom with all you need. The only drawbacks were the TV not having English channels and a bed a bit too soft.

Staff was helpful, free internet and a very good breakfast.

I don't understand why this hotel takes 4*? It's typical, old 3* hotel. Rooms dimensions, quality, condition and everything is on 3* level. Rooms wasn't shabby but all hotel excluding Reception is middling, forgettable, lackluster. Absolutely nothing special. Building and interior from '70. Fresh and hard mattress was only new part of the room equipment. Bedlinen was fresh, towels the same but smell oddly: with hospital/chemical odour. Funny was shower cubicle. In door place Y can find curtain. Curtain too short to prevent floor from flooding.
If Y plan short stay in Vien, traveling by car, have exiguous needs and appreciate location walking distance from old town in really quiet environment - it can be hotel for You.

Just had a few nights in one of the not-renovated rooms. Shabby best describes the room. The bed and mattress were ok. However, the carpeting, lighting and especially the bathroom were definitely not of 4* standard. Location is ok - about 10min brisk walk to the Schottentor and another brisk 10min to the Hofburg. Breakfast was fine with a good selection. Staff seemed competent.

Room Tip: apparently there are rooms which have been renovated. Ask for one!

There is very little good to say about this hotel. I was given a smokers room although I had clearly stated that I want a non smoker room. When I complained the unfriendly staff said that they have no other room left. They hadn't even considered notifying me in advance. I didn't want to look for a new hotel since I had arrived late at night. This turned out to be the wrong decision. The smell in the room was so bad I had to sleep with open windows in December. The walls were dirty and the bed was so uncomfortable it was like sleeping on bare springs. The Internet was so frustratingly slow. It felt like 1997 again.
Given the price I would not recommend the hotel to anyone

This hotel is substandard in almost every way. Our bed was terrible and it felt as if one was sleeping directly on the bedsprings with no padding whatsoever. Walls were stained and dinged.
Decor was budget college dorm. Location very inconvenient as well.

Management was particularly unfriendly and unhelpful. Breakfast was good.

We stayed at this hotel during a business trip where it came recommended as a 4 star hotel.

Pros: The staff was friendly and very helpful. There were a lot of choices at breakfast. Location is good. Pretty close to the tram and not too far from downtown. Quiet neighbourhood. Free WiFi.

Cons: The walls in the hallways were dirty. The beds were horribly uncomfortable. The garage is tiny and if your car is anything BUT a smart car you will have a very hard time getting in and out of the parking spot.
