My husband and I stayed one night at Hotel Austria on the final night of our 10 day Austrian trip. We chose Hotel Austria based on Trip Advisor reviews and for its location to the airport bus stop. The hotel is two blocks from Schwedenplatz where you can pick up the airport bus for a reasonable price. We had to leave the hotel very early to catch our plane. We left at 3:45 a.m. in the morning and walked to the bus. We felt safe in the neighborhood and its location was very convenient.
The room was clean and roomy. It had high ceilings and gave it a more "luxurious" feel to it. The bed and pillows were comfortable. We did have to sleep with the windows closed due to some noise from the side street below. The hotel had an oscillating fan in the room which helps to keep you cool. The rooms do not have air conditioning and most don't in Austria. If they have air conditioning you will pay extra for it.
The reception staff was friendly and helpful. We were able to check in and out at the same time since we were leaving so early. I would have enjoyed the opportunity to stay at the hotel longer than one night as it was quite charming. The front staff even extended an offer to have some early breakfast and coffee for us which was kind of them.
