“perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

We stayed at Hotel Wandl 3 nights at the middle of April. The hotel is perfectly located. Close to everything in Innere Stadt. Helpful and polite staff. Nice decor inside, stylish mix of antic and modern design. Rooms are clean, but small and with poor soundproofing. We intentionally booked a room with view to have fresh air from the window facing the street. Rooms without "view" have windows to the internal patio of the hotel which has glass roof, so no fresh air there. Street sounds of horses clip-clops and church bells were really nice.
This is 4 stars hotel but toiletries in the shower are like in 2 stars hotels. Breakfast was very modest, same choices every day. Again not as expected for 4 stars rated hotels. They keep prices relatively cheaper then other hotels in the city center. Is it because of breakfast/toiletries?
Few words on WiFi: we booked 2 double rooms which had common wall but were physically located in different corridors. There were no WiFi signal in our room, but the other room did had WiFi connection. Strange, isn't it?

Room Tip: Choose room with view, this is the only chance you'll get fresh air from an opened window

My wife and I stayed at the Wandl several times over the years. The location is excellent. Just behind St Peter Church, a stone's throw from the cathedral, the Hofburg, and all the other main Vienna attractions. This hotel is not new but shows its' age with elegance. It can do with a facelift, but, here I am nitpicking, as the very friendly staff, the cleanliness and the location make you forget any minor fault.

On New Year's Eve you can go to the Kaiserball on foot. The same goes for the New Year Hofburg Concert.

Although we were at the Wandl in May 2012, we stayed several times around New Year's Eve.

Although we've visited Vienna many many times this was our first overnight stay. We were attending an event at the Hofburg Chapel the following morning so we wanted somewhere central, and somewhere 'nice'. We ended up choosing this hotel because it was much cheaper than many comparable hotels in the vicinity.

This hotel is wonderful. It is a 3 min walk from St Stephansplatz U-bahn, just off a little side street. The gentleman on reception was hugely welcoming, even putting up with my bad German. It is one of the best welcomes I've received in any hotel. We asked about restaurant recommendations and he recommended a Bierhaus 200 yards away. Then suggested that since it was a Saturday it might be a good idea to make reservations, which he did for us.

We stayed in a standard room. We could have paid EUR30 extra to stay in a 'room with a view' but we've seen Vienna tons of times, plus, how much time do you actually spend in the room?! We had a room on the 1st floor - this worked out rather well as you can (by fluke) access the free wi-fi (normally only available in the lobby). All the rooms have a WAN connection at a cost of EUR 5 per day. The room was immaculately clean with nice modern fixtures and fittings. It's not a huge room, but the very high ceilings make it feel bigger. The room overlooked an internal courtyard and was very quiet.

After a lovely dinner we returned to the bar where the lovely staff were happy to get us some wine. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom is lovely - the water pressure in the shower was a bit feeble.

We enjoyed an excellent breakfast - hot sausages & eggs, pastries, cold meats & cheeses, cereal etc. I would have liked to have lingered in the cosy breakfast room but we were running late!

We would definitely stay here next time we have an over-nighter in Vienna.

Room Tip: We were able to access the free wifi (available in the lobby) from our 1st floor room. Our room didn...

As with the experience of many others, the location is fabulous, being central and close to a lot of activities. The rooms were also clean but do not provide any iron or ironing board. Service is mixed. Did not receive a very good reception from the counter staff when he finds my booking confusing. But he did help to set up an extra bed in my room, being the only staff on duty at that time. When I asked for hot water for my instant cup noodles at night, the night staff was accommodating. The quality of the breakfast can be improved though.

I stayed in hotel wandl for 5 nights. From 23 to 28 of December. It was one of the best hotels i have ever stayed. Great new rooms, nice decorated, very clean, friendly stuff and just in the heart of the city!
The only thing i didnt like that much was that they didnt have double beds but i supposed that was not a problem as they put 2 single beds the one next to the other.
I would definately visit it again!

While the hotel accommodation itself was OK and location is great, the service from the middle aged man behind the counter was quite unbelievable. I watched in horror as he belittled a Swedish woman for not having 13 Euro cash but instead have to pay by card. He shook his head repetitively and tuttered like she was a 5 year old.

Breakfast was just average

the good news is that the Hotel Wandl is in a perfect location, walking distance to Vienna sites and great restaurants. the bad news is.....There are two views at this hotel and as many other reviewers have mentioned, don't book a courtyard view. there is NO view from Rm 127, just another close building with their windows looking into your room. If you do look out that one window, you will see a concrete floor below which must be the exit for the Hotel's kitchen. VERY early in the morning as they begin cooking they talk and laugh and their voices carry. It's as if they are in bed with you! dishes clank, people chatter and personal info is divulged to the hotel guests. It's a non-smoking hotel with no air conditioning so a window has to be open. the employees sneak a smoke in that "courtyard" and that smell travels right up into the rooms. I purposely chose a non-smoking hotel and then had an allergy attack due to some unthinking employee. Lastly, upon arrival, there was a big clump of black hair on the bright lime green bathrm tile. We picked it up but then noticed black hair was all over the floor. they did reclean the bathroom for us and apologized but it was really disgusting. room was dusty which made me think it hadn't been cleaned in many days. Loud machine noises from that lower concrete area. Front desk didn,t seem to care that there were problems. Would never stay here again.

Room Tip: My tip???...don,t stay here but if you have to, ask for a street facing room and bring a fan...very...
