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.
