Spotlessly clean but basic room, good shower, excellent Wifi. Very friendly hosts, excellent buffet breakfast. Older style place but good value in Vienna. Easy access to tram and subway. Would stay here again.

We've got a small double room which was stinky (in the very strict sense). On about 15 sq.m. there was only bed and terrible white scratched table, which looked like someone was preparing salad just on it. One of power sources was just in the bed (!) next to a pillow. The phone is just lying on the floor under the bed. No fridge, minibar - needless to say. We booked the hotel using booking.com, which in this particular case has very misleading description and images. The owner was not ready to cancel the booking, when we stated that there is a mismatch between the description and the reality, explaining this by ridiculous statement that this can only be negotiated through booking.com. After contacting booking.com we ensured this is lie. The owner also stated that for 85 EUR nothing better can be found in Vienna close to the center, which was proven to be false by us after finding a great 4-star hotel for just a bit more expensive price. Although the parking is provided, the slots are located in 2 rows, leaving very small space to park in/out.

Stayed there for two nights in February. Very nice, clean. Would stay there again if I were to go to Vienna. They have free off the street parking, felt safe keeping the car there. We walked everywhere we went, no need to get transportation.

The convenient location just inside the city center of Vienna is one of the big advantages of this little nice hotel, the friendly personnel is another. Like in most hotels in Vienna, the breakfast is very good.

If you a looking for a charming little hotel in Vienna and not a big chain hotel, this is a good choice. Located not too far away from the city center, close to universities and the shopping district, the personnel will make you feel comfortable here. The rooms are reasonably spacious and nicely decorated, breakfast was really good.

We had a triple room and I want to add to and agree with the previous reviews. Breakfast has a lot of cold items with decent scrambled eggs as the one hot food. Beds are a little less than rock hard.

However the showers had very hot water for three minutes. If you work the flow to a trickle and make it lukewarm you still do not have time to shampoo hair. I should have complained about it.

The Internet is superb here. Take the 49 tram up a mile and eat at 7 Stern.

In a quiet street near to a choice of 3 U-Bahn stations (on 2 different lines). The building appears to be behind another building and is therefore not on the main street - this makes it very quiet. Nice staff, good breakfast, room adequate. All in all, a good place to stay.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are off the main street and so are nice and quiet.
