“Spacious apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We were in Vienna with our teen aged boys and so rented an apartment suite at the Carlton Opera, where I have stayed previously (2007, 2008). The two bedrooms were bordering on huge, but with very little furnishing, so the beds seemed to float in all that space. But they we're comfy, the building was quiet, and we were able to get street parking right out front (10 Euros per day). Breakfast is hearty and the wifi was strong. On the downside, the rooms were dusty, especially the floors, and despite two visits from the maids, they remained that way. On the upside, the Naschmarkt is one block and Karlsplatz is just three. A tip...some of the apartments are in a building with a lift, some seem to be in one without a lift...be sure you get one with the lift or you'll be getting plenty of extra exercise.

Taxi from airport cost around 43 euros.Cold welcome.We had to climb 11 stairs to reception.Had to carry our heavy suitcases up.Room was ok,clean but the TV was not connected.Maintenance called.We had tea bags and coffee but no milk.Receptionist told us to buy milk in supermarket nearby.At least milk should be offered for the first night.Bathroom needs grouting.
Location very good to visit historical places.
Nachmarket which is about 150 metres on the right of the hotel is a must to visit.International cuisine,fruits and wines.
Had a problem in Vienna.Elke and Marc were very helpful.

We stayed in a two room apartment in this hotel for 3 days. One room was big together with the kitchen in the same area, no division. Even though the two big windows opened to the street, it was quiet. The other room was much smaller, and the curtains were not thick enough to darken the room. We traveled with another couple, relatives, and the only bathroom was sometimes not enough. Is was over all clean and despite the building being old, the areas were renovated, specially the bathroom, witch was fairly new. Towels ok. Beds were comfortable. Good Breakfast, plenty of options, served in the hotel area. The location is great. Neat the Opera, and the Naschmarkt with lots of eating options and the main train station. No parking including but we were lucky enough to find a parking space in the street near by and left the car there all day for 8€. There is a garage 1 block away but it was €18 a day. The staff is very friendly and helpful, specially the man at the front desk. This is the 3rd time we stay at the Carlton Opera, first time in the apartment area and will surely come back. For us it is the best option in Viena.

We stayed here for three days and were very happy. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. They helped us to book tours and concerts.

The rooms are not very big but clean and comfortable and there is free coffee and wifi in the rooms. The hotel is also ideally situated for tourists visiting the opera house and other attractions in that area.

The breakfast was also very good with lots of variety and fresh products.

The appartments are behind the hotel, with a separate entrance although check in and breakfast are in the main hotel. The appartment was big and clean and had a reasonable kitchen, two bathrooms, a single and double bedroom. The living space was dominated by the second double bed so there was no space to relax in really. The location wasn't bad, close to the station for the train into town. Parking was close, but expensive. Breakfast was basic. Better blinds would have made for a better sleep, but the courtyard is quiet.

I stayed 10 days while on business in Vienna. The location is fantastic, very near to the opera, the Hofburg, the Naschmarkt and lots of restaurants. The room was kept very clean (although the shower could use more of a scrubbing), the breakfast was basic but plentiful and the staff was nice. The place was much less expensive than I expected in that area. Will definitely stay again.
