We stayed here for four nights 14th-18th December and we are so pleased that we did! What a fantastic find when we searching on the BA site for a Christmas time trip to Vienna. We were in room 512 right at the top but it was cosy and quiet. Good size bathroom and the hairdryer was brilliant. As were the complimentary items in there!!! The hotel is undergoing renovation so some of it does look dated but hopefully this will be completed soon. The staff are all so friendly,welcoming and helpful. Always smiling even at times when they were extremely busy. The breakfast was unbelievable! Set us up for whole days of exploring Vienna and no need for lunch. When we checked out we were given a little Christmas gift bag which was so simple but lovely and a really nice touch. I read a lot of reviews regarding Vienna prior to our trip and to be honest was a little worried-needlessly I have to say. The Donauwalzer is well placed for public transport but also if you're like us for walking to and from the centre. I didn't want to leave so would we return-absolutely!!!!! A couple of tips about Vienna in general do remember that shops are shut on a Sunday so if like us you tend to stock up on drink and crisps from supermarkets and you happen to be there on a Saturday then thats the time to buy and leave in your room! Also if you decide to travel from the airport on the SBahn then remember to buy two tickets for each member of your party as you have to travel across two fare zones (you'll remember on the return journey) the fare is four euros 20 in total for one person. The ticket inspectors are dead hot on catching you out even if it is a genuine mistake, there is no sympathy!!
