4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

We stayed here for 3 days. Klaus (Gerald) and Anita were very helpful, going so far as making a packed lunch, gratis and unasked, when we had to check out pre-breakfast time. Also very helpful with local travel advice.

Rooms are comfortable,and functional. It is not a luxury hotel, but does the basics well. We would happily stay there if in Vienna again.

The staff are friendly and helpful so I wish I could give this a better rating, but this isn't a good hotel. The room is clean but basic and very dated which isn't itself an issue, but the shower pressure isn't great, the bed is hard and squeaks at every movement, the noise from other guests late at night and at breakfast was very loud, breakfast itself is okay but one of the mornings the bread was a bit stale.
Worst of all, there is no 24 hour reception, and this place has three old-style keys, the kind you need to twist several times to get doors open. The door to the building and to the room were alright but on the first evening we had a lot of trouble with the door to get into the floor (i.e. the Pension itself). With no way to contact staff and no response to our constant ringing of the doorbell (which was probably terrible for any guests who were home) we were this close to having to go to another hotel (without most of our stuff) after about half an hour of trying, when finally we managed to get it open.
All in all, not worth it.

The location was great- walking distance to the center of shopping and restaurants.
The staff were very friendly and kept the pension clean. They helped us with parking and made it very easy.
I didn't love the room, it was non-smoking but you could tell someone had smoked in there. There was no ac, which was not good with all the noise on the street. The bed was comfortable though. One weird thing- there is a timer on the light for the bathroom.
Breakfast was great!

Our first impression was the extremely helpful and friendly owner! He showed us on our map where to go to eat authentic food. And what an excellent recommendation it was! We were delighted with the high vaulted ceiling, the spacious room, big windows, private bathroom and the white crisp bed sheets covering fluffy down. How lovely to come back at the end of the day to a tidy room. Located within "the ring" but away from noise and bustle of the main drag. The breakfast area was beautifully set, the food plentiful and the arranged seating encouraged socialization. Although there was no air conditioning there was a small fan that helped keep the warm air moving. Wi fi and safe included. We stayed two nights & loved this place and our ability to walk everywhere. The only time we took a tram was to visit the Belvedere. Thank You Gerald & Anita!

We enjoyed our stay with the corner room being beautiful with plenty of room for luggage and moving around. The bathroom was a fully enclosed cabin in the room and while being a bit small was quite adequate. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with the typical German/Austrian fare of cheeses, meats, breads and the usual muselii, fruits, yogurts, juices and good coffee. The proprietress was very friendly and knowledgeable. We would return there again.

The pension's location is convenient to central Vienna, which makes it very good value for money. The beds were great, and the room and bathroom very clean. The breakfasts were cold but ample. We had a twin without bath, which I don't mind, but I didn't like having to go through the central area to go have a shower. Also, the central area is mostly dining room with not much actual sitting area.

The internet reception was very bad, which was a major drawback for us as we were trying to book a bus ticket that only booked online. Because everyone has internet, there were no internet cafes, which led to a wasted morning for us in an already short Vienna stay trying to chase one up. The proprietress insisted there was nothing wrong with the wifi, although everyone else had trouble too; however she did very kindly help us book our ticket on her own computer that evening. As mentioned by other reviewers, there are a lot of rules!

Room Tip: I would either get one with an ensuite, or ask for one on the bathroom side of the pension. I didn...

Anita and Gerald who speak English and German were the most gracious host at the Schweizer Pension Solderer in Viena, The breakfasts were great and the room was perfect. Great location, Just a 5 minute walk to the Stephenson Cathedral and all the shopping areas. It is very safe as is most of Vienna, They helped with our day trip to Salzburg and gave us all the travel info we ask for.. What a nice 4 day stay at the Schweizer Pension Solderer. We will never forget the friendliness.
Thank you from Cincinnati...

Room Tip: They are all good..
