Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Was shocked going in at first, its kind of a building within a building. The place smelled old and dusty and the elevator looked run-down. However the room is comfortable and spacious and the location is not bad- within walking distance of the city center.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled with friends

We were a group of 6 (rented 3 rooms), staying at the Pension for 4 nights. The location is very convenient for access to the metro, around the corner from the University, and steps away from City Hall Square.

All the rooms were air-conditioned, which was a HUGE plus, as the temps were in the high 80s during our stay. Of the three rooms, one had a profoundly small bathroom -- barely enough space for one person, and the other had a notably small room -- barely enough space to put down two suitcases. Our room was a "deluxe", and it was both comfortable and spacious.

WiFi was intermittent, at best.

We had to ask for additional pillows and towels (each person got just one of each), and those were delivered. The TVs in two of the rooms were defective, and replacements were delivered. The rooms were clean and neat, but def. old (old carpeting, old paint, just overall worn and used -- but again, clean!). If you care about aesthetics, you may not be happy (some of our fellow travelers were upset about the look and feel of the residence). But, if you're looking for a convenient location, good amenities (including AC!!!), a responsible and responsive owner, a decent daily breakfast (hard-boiled eggs, yogurts, cold cuts, rolls, tea, coffee, and breads/spreads), and a comfortable bed, this is def. recommended.

Room Tip: Ask to upgrade to a Deluxe room if it's available -- good size bathroom and room itself. The &qu...

The Pension is ideally located for a city visit. Very close to the Rathaus and Parliament and many of the other sights of Vienna. Very friendly staff, and while rooms are not luxurious, they were perfect for us. We also had the good fortune to have the only room with a balcony (#126); the other room for our party of 4 was facing a dark alley.
The rooms are quiet and well equipped; comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, small fridge, air conditioning; free Internet (although sometime a bit spotty) was a bonus. While some reviewers have mentioned tired furnishings, we didn't find them too bad at all. It's all part of the charm of this place :)

Breakfast is very good. Well stocked buffet of cereal, cold cuts, jams etc. - no issues there.

Parking - like anywhere else in Vienna - can be an issue, but we found a spot right outside the hotel. Ask for the day pass (costs 15 Euros) and use the excellent subway/tram system to get around (we bought a 72 hour pass for 15 Euros and it was more than worth it). The nearest subway is right near the Rathaus and from there, it's easy to get around.

Overall - I can definitely recommend the Pension Residenz for budget friendly accommodation in the heart of this beautiful city... Don't expect 4-stars, though...

Room Tip: #126 has the only balcony with a nice view of the Rathaus :) Rooms to the back are dark.

The Residenz was just what we needed, and the owner was exceptionally friendly and full of information. The location is in a big old building, very well tended inside and very quiet. If you stay here, prepare ahead by bringing a good map. It's near the Schottentor transit hub, and we had some trouble heading in the right direction. We found no local neighborhood map in the U-Bahn station, nor were the people at the transit info office helpful.

We came to the hotel according trip advisor reviews.
The hotel is hardly 2 stars hotel.
It is locate on the edge of the inner city.
It is a part of a large old building that should have been renewed 30 years ago.
Our room was large and clean. The bathroom was small and a beat old.
The alls and the furniture new some better days.
Steal it is good value to your money in a city like Vienna.
The stuff was very nice and helpful.
It is a good place if you know what to expect.
If you want more you will have to pay more.

Convenient position. Corner room, high floor, old furniture and small bathroom, but in excellent condition and very clean and well kept. Sound-proof windows. Exceptionally kind staff. Good breakfast, but the place needs improvements: please put place-mats on the tables (even cheap, paper ones!), add some flowers and have some music on! The room has almost no natural light and it may be claustrophobic without some extra effort ...

Room Tip: Corner room was huge and full of light. No desk (disappointing, if you have to work)

Stayed at Pension Residenz for two nights in january, and really enjoyed our stay. Staff was friendly and helpfull and rooms were spacious and clean. Yes the decor is a bit old fashioned, the lift is small and the stairs many, but that is all part of the charm. Silk tapestrys and crystal chandeliers, really gets you in the mood of exploring the city and historic buildings of Vienna. Breakfast is two floors down and very basic, however keeping in mind the price, as good as it gets.
Location as well is perfect within the inner city, near the "rathaus" and several connections via tram and underground.
Would definately stay here again on another visit to the beautifull city of Vienna!

Room Tip: If you need a hairdryer, you might want to bring your own, since the ones in the rooms doesn't r...
