“Relaxing in downtown Vienna”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

As you know Vienna can be discovered by foot. at good starting point is this Pension, tucked away in an appartment block close to the city centre. I agree with the other comments that it is a little difficult to find but the facilities have been upgraded recently on M floor and the staff are worth their weight in gold. If you find the breakfast room stuffy, just open the door and let some fresh air in!

Room Tip: the room on M floor have been refurbished

We stayed at this hotel last year when visiting Vienna for the Christmas markets. When we arrived we were a bit unsure of what to expect due to the old style lift and dark staircases, however don't let this put you off. The staff were welcoming and our room (standard double) was comfortable and a good size. Breakfast was the same every morning, a continental style buffet, but we had no complaints as there was plenty to available to fill us up for the day! The location is excellent as the hotel is right in the centre of Vienna and only 5-10 minutes walk away from two different underground stations. Free wi-fi in the rooms was also very handy. Overall, this was excellent value for money and we would definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel last year and liked it enough to return. As others have said it is hidden with just a small sign on the doorway. The folks at the desk go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. On my first trip they had to call a doctor to our room and also found a pharmacy for us which was open and changed our train tickets for us--all well beyond the call of duty. They take extra care to make sure that their guests are happy with the rooms and service. The rooms are old but clean. The breakfast is substantial: soft-boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, breads and rolls, cereal, meats and cheese. The ladies who work at breakfast are kept on the run making sure that all is kept well stocked. They are as friendly as the men at the front desk. The location is great too. You get a real feel for Vienna here--something you wouldn't get at a more "Americanized" hotel.

I recently stayed at the Pension Residenz for three nights. It was very comfortable with an old-fashioned feel that I enjoy. I had a single room with plenty of room. The bathroom was very spacious with a very good shower. The location was terrific for walking, catching a tram or subway. The breakfast was a typical meal but with good service. The front desk folks were very helpful, friendly and quite humorous. I would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay here. Must say I wasn't sure at first when entering the big old building but spent three nights here and loved the character of the place. Good location, close to ubahn, tasty breakfast, good service and nice clean rooms.

Reviewed 5 February 2013

this hotel is located in a very chic area of vienna, close to downtown and convenient metro stations.
It may seem strange, but the hotel is almost "hidden" inside a big ald building, so it has many floors and shares the building with familiaes, embassies, and so on.
The staff was friendly enough and helpful, the rooms were antique but well maintained and clean. The breakfast was very good . On the whole, the hotel is much better that what you can tell from the pictures. And is cheap!

Spent 1 night at Pension Residenz in Vienna. Great location from the Rathausplatz Christmas Market. It's about 2 min walk. The owner/receptionist is very helpful and speaks english. Breakfast and free Wifi was included in our room. I didn't have a hard time finding the place. Downsides are bed-not so comfortable (firm) and I had to pay 10 Euro (1 day) for street parking.
