AllYouNeed Hotel Vienna 2
Ranked #202 of 359 Hotels in Vienna
Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

We took a short break last year in Vienna and wanted to come back for longer (ten days). Of course, longer stays cost more so we found and booked the All You Need 2 at half the price of where we stayed last year (the Caprice).

Have to say that the hotel is basic but, really as the name suggests, is all you need. There are no kettles in the rooms, so drinks are obtained via the vending machines downstairs. Breakfast is good (European hot, cold selections and cereals, yoghurts and jams) and there's an ok all you can eat buffet dinner service for about eleven euros. Tried it once and can say that the pork medallions were pretty tasty.

Staff are friendly and helpful. For example, they rang ahead to the ferry/cruise company and Rathauskeller to ask questions for us and book us tickets in advance. Would recommend booking popular attractions ahead of time.

The free wi-fi was poor to non-existent in our room but strong in the foyer. But hey, we're on holiday so who really needs the Internet?!

No safes in the rooms, despite the wardrobes having keyholes. The hotel safe can store valuables but at two euros a day.

One bonus is that the hotel has a small garden to eat outside or perhaps to read a book and enjoy a beer (from the vending machine!) in a balmy evening.

The hotel itself is very well placed. It's half way between Schwedenplatz and Shottenring, on the quiter side of the canal and just a twenty or thirty minute walk to any of the main noise (Rathaus, Prater park, Mitte and so on).

To sum up, we were slightly taken aback at first by how basic the hotel could be in some areas but by the end of the week, we were really happy and when you consider how cheap it is, it really is all you need.

I spent only 1 night in AllYouNeed Hotel in Vienna (which is somewhere in between a hotel and a hostel anyway) with some friends. It is only 4 stop from Krieau Stadium by metro (approx. 25 mins walk anyway). Stephansdom (=city centre) is a 10 minutes walk.
The hotel is surrounded by one-way streets which makes car parking/navigating a bit difficult but there is a safe parking house where hotel guests can have some places.
The rooms were small but cosy, our rooms on the top floor had balconies as well. There is no air conditioning. Shower gel/shampoo amount is low, even for a one-night stay. TV has 100+ channels.
Breakfast was excellent! :-) You even can have it in the small garden.
Best part of the stay was the morning with a wide choice of food for breakfast and the polite staff in the dining room.
Reception staff could have been a bit more eager to help but generally they were OK. Reception doesn't work during the night but you can enter the building with the room key.

And the last thing: there was nothing open around the hotel from 11 pm onwards (no bars, no cafes, no corner shops) so be prepared in advance if you plan to have a few drinks there. ;-)

Room Tip: Rooms on 6th floor are very hot during the summer

Parents went for four nights, the breakfast was excellent and the rooms were small but i guess for the price we paid that's what we got, all in all was an excellent hotel, could do slightly better with air conditioning rooms. the breakfast was amazing, much better than the rooms and easily worth it for the amount paid.

Very good value for money, very clean and comfortable with a good breakfast. No aircon. Half way between a hostel and a hotel. Bit of a walk from the main area in the heat (mid-August) but ok location. Would recommend.

We spent 2 nights here during September and really enjoyed it. The rooms are small and cosy, but absolutely pristine and accommodating. The continental breakfast was delicious. The hotel is very centrally located. I'd definitely stay there again.

Dear guest A.J.

thank you for your feedback and your stay at AllYouNeed Hotel Vienna2. I regret that our hotel did not meet your expecations, but would like to clear up some points of your review. I would be glad to hear why the location of the hotel was not satisfactory- our hotel is located in 2nd district of Vienna, only 10min. walk from old city center in a quiet side street. All points of interest can easily be reached either by foot or with public transport like subway- the stations are located in 5 min. walk from hotel. I am also dissapointed to hear that our staff was "terrible"- also here I would be glad to get more information of what went wrong? This information as well as notice of the room number (in order to check the TV problem) would help us to improve our services. Please be kind to send me more details on our email address stay@allyouneedhotels.at- I would really appreciate your support.

Kind regards
Marina Siebert
Hotel Director

The reception staff were helpful. They let us leave our bags in reception as we were too early to check in. The room was small and basic but served our needs. There was a nice garden with sun beds. The breakfasts were adequate and there was plenty of choice from cereals to cold meats, breads and cheese. Also cakes and fruit. We found the hotel very quiet even though it was full. We were a short walk from the city and the Danube canal. Recommend the boat trip along the Danube that goes through the huge lock at the hydroelectric plant, 3 and a half hours of relaxation and very reasonable.
