Hotel Austria
Ranked #24 of 358 Hotels in Vienna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2010

The hotel is situated in the very centre of Vienna, a 2-3 minutes walk to a main underground station , tram and bus stops and within walking distance to all points of attraction in the heart of the city. The staff are very helpful and pleasant , make you feel really welcome and are able to help with all kinds of problems. There are plenty of restaurants close to the hotel, but the hotel is in a cul de sac, so there is no noise. The breakfast is very good and there is a diversity of dishes to cater for all tastes and diets. Everything is clean, the rooms look well and the lobby (with a PC with free Internet) creates the atmosphere of a stylish Viennese home. You can just sit a have a wine or beer there or on a terrace. When it rained the hotel provided umbrellas.
I will definitely go back and I recommend it to all my friends.

I recommend this hotel. It is comfortable and central. The breakfast is good, and the staff are extremely helpful. There is also pleasant sunny terrace where we chilled out with a drink after sightseeing. The reception sells travel tickets for the underground/bus/tram as well as concerts and tours, and the recption staff are informative, friendly and efficient. Would definately stay here again.

Vienna was our first stop on a 16 day trip in Europe. I dropped my cell phone in the taxi from the airport. The front desk manager immediately contacted the taxi company and arranged to have my phone returned to me within 2 hours. This made what could have been a very bad start to our vacation very enjoyable.

The Hotel Austria is a smaller, older style European hotel. The Rooms are very clean and certainly spacious enough for two. The breakfast, included in the price is wonderful. The location is good, although when we were in Vienna, there was construction going on on the buildings on the main road which made the walk way to the hotel very dark. We were followed by three young men one night, although once they realized we were going to a hotel they turned back.

The Hotel is quiet, has a lovely terrace and close to many restaurants and shops.

We stayed at Austria Hotel in a large triple room.It was very clean and everything looked just perfect.The hotel itself is very comfortable. The breakfast is amazing you can t ask for more and the breakfast room is spacious and tastefully decorated. Hotel Austria is located close to the subway ( 5-10min) and also close to many sites such as St Stephen Cathedral , Mozart Museum.etc I would highly recommend this hotel and woul stay here again.

We found this hotel to be great value and loved the Viennese atmosphere especially the grand circular staircase (we were on the fourth floor and so used the staircase as our daily exercise!). We stayed in the triple/family room which was huge and made us feel very grand!
Breakfast was wonderful in the large breakfast room and the internet access in the front room was a godsend after several days of other very dodgy interent experiences in previous hotels!
The location is amazingly quiet considering how close it is to everything in a major city! We also had the building works mentioned by other reviewers, so I can only imagine the cul de sac is normally even nicer.
We also found the staff very helpful and friendly and overall it was one of the best hotels we stayed in in Europe.

We booked the Hotel Austria for 5 nights in Jan/Feb based purely on the Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. This is a lovely boutique hotel in a quiet laneway but very close to everything. You can reach almost everything with a max 20 min walk, or if walking is not your thing (the only way to see Vienna !), the Ubahn is a 3 min walk away. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly Wolfgang, and the wait staff and domestic staff were always incredibly bright and cheery. The room was not large but not small either, and spotlessly clean. Our room faced the internal courtyard and was very quiet, but there is some construction going on at the front of the laneway so some of the outside rooms might be a bit noisy once the building work starts in the mornings. The included buffet breakfast was beautifully presented with cereals, juices, fresh fruit, cheeses and cold meats, fresh bread selection, yoghurts, stewed fruits, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon and many sorts of condiments. We certainly didn't need lunch. The free internet access in the front lounge was a bonus. We booked directly with the hotel and paid 117 euros a night which we thought was excellent value for a central hotel in a major European city. We would definitely stay there again, and would love to return to Vienna, ......... but maybe in Spring or Autumn when it's a bit warmer !
