I have booked this hotel due to its location and (low) price, after it was suggested by my travel agent. Before booking I have checked its website (in German), plus various reviews on the web. I must say that the room we've got was nothing like the pics I have seen here or on the web site. To be honest, I had a shock when we first entered it. It was a double (twin) on the 5th floor (actually the attic) and everything looked close to falling apart. Although we have waited for about 30 minutes as it was not check-in time yet, the room was not cleaned, bed-linen not changed etc. But that was solved pretty quickly and when we returned even the light bulb in the bathroom was replaced (the light was not working in the first place). The falling apart with stains wall-paper was still there, the so called furniture (in fact a tv table with the mini-bar and a drawer that were looking like "home-made") was still there, the minuscule, dirty-looking bath"room" was still there etc. But overall, it looked better than during the first encounter. At least the beds were comfortable. We stayed for 4 nights and in the end we got used to it, with the help of the friendly staff and the wonderful Vienna itself. One additional minus: the attic room can get quite hot in the summer and there is no AC. But you can sleep with the attic-window open and there is no noise whatsoever. Only the morning light gets right in your face so sleeping late is out of the question. Overall, as a cheap alternative, an acceptable stay if you're not picky.
