Vienna is a second home to me, and when I decided to take a pre Christmas break there, I wanted a central location to make the best of the short time in the city. The hotel Marc Aurel is situated perfectly on the edge of the inner stadt just a few hundred meters from Schwedenplatz underground station and just a few steps from the airport bus.
The hotel itself is in a fairly quite street and we were greeted on arrival by a very friendly gentleman, who saw to it that we were given our room key and various maps and leaflets to digest for our visit. The reception was small but well looked after and soon we were in the small, but aromatic lift (shake and vac required). Our room was on the 2nd floor and faced the street below.
Once inside, the room had everything we needed. A small table and chairs by the large window, double bed, small flat screen tv and a few bed side tables. There's a large wardrobe and plenty of places to put your clothes and suitcases once you've unpacked.there's also a minibar which was great for storing the odd bit of milk or soft drinks. The bathroom featured a shower, toilet and sink unit with complimentary toiletries.
The room is exactly what I expected from this 3 star hotel and was very comfortable. However, the walls are quite thin and its easy to be disturbed by the odd guest now and again as they return home in the evenings. The outside street can also be a bit noisy at odd times of the day, as the 0630 beer delivery to a restaurant showed me one morning
Included in the Room rate is breakfast, which is available in the restaurant every morning. The choice is ok without being overwhelming with breads, cereals, cold meats and yogurts being available along with copious amounts of tea and coffee. It's all rather nice.
To sum up, the hotel Marc Aurel makes no pretensions to its statue, its a great simple little 3 star hotel that delivers what it says without fuss. If your looking for a reasonably priced location to explore the city from, then this is for you.
