My wife and our son of 7 spent the last days of 2013 in Vienna. We enjoyed 'das Silvesterpfad' and the vibrant city life in Vienna. Four months earlier I stumbled upon the Simm's Hotel, a modern, clean and recent building at the Simmeringer Hauptstrasse. I made my booking early September (Zimmer mit Frühstück) and got a very nice price (at least compared to the overpriced hotels in the centre of Vienna. We got room 810, a top-level 3 bed room overlooking the Simmeringer area and the Gasometers. The views on the fireworks at New Year's Eve were wonderful. The room itself was very clean, with a rather stylish look (e.g. concrete ceiling). The bathroom was perfect: you can take a shower looking at the roofs of the neighboring buildings and viewing the skyline of Vienna. Breakfast was perfect. Large choice of bread and sweets, fruit, cereals, eggs, bacon, .... I especially liked the fact that a can of coffee was already standing on the table. When you arrived you could immediately enjoy a hot cup of coffee (if you didn't take your first cup of Nespresso in your room). During the evening, the reception was staffed by a very nice lady (I think her name was Jana) who helped us booking a table in a very good restaurant (Stern Gasthaus, Braunhubergasse 5). The hotel is next to the metro entrance (U3) and tram 71 stops right at the door. No matter where you want to go in Vienna, you can either take U3 or line 71. We switched between both options depending on our destination. The trip to the centre takes approximately 20 minutes.
