Reviewed 23 June 2014

Long story short, highly recommended to those who wish to make the best of their time and money.

The hotel is literally on top of the U-Bahn subway station (Zippererstrasse), which means you are always 10-15 minutes away from any major location in Vienna, and 6-7 minutes from "Stephansplatz", which is the city centre.The hotel is very new, the rooms are medium size, but are equipped with an air-conditioner, mini-bar (fridge), a safe and a big flat screen T.V with a lot of international channels. We did not include breakfast, but you can add it for 12 euros, and you take it at the lobby of the hotel (didn't look convenient, but again, we didn't use this service).

Nearby, there are 3 food stores, which combined with the mini-fridge in the hotel room provided us with all the snacks we needed. A nearby station (Enkplatz) has very cheap laundry service (self-service), and in a pinch, 11th district nearby streets offer a few neighbourhood bars, which are cheap and neat, if you don't fancy a ride to district 1 (city centre). Extremely convenient was also having Hertz Car rental a few blocks away, so we didn't have to travel too far to pick up our rented car (to travel outside of Vienna). The hotel has a garage right beneath it, but you should park in the streets around it, as it's free (not on the main street).

Room Tip: Choose rooms on the side not facing BBRZ building, as it shines a bright purple light (the shades ha...

This hotel is located slightly outside of the city center but within easy reach thanks to the Viennese metro system. Zippererstrasse's metro is just below the hotel (literally!!!) where you can take the U3 to go downtown - directly to Stephansplatz.
The hotel is extremely clean and the room had every comfort - maybe it was a little too warm at times, but there is really nothing to complain. The staff also was very kind and ready to help with any type of request.
The price also was very acceptable - should I go back to Vienna I would definitely return to this hotel.
*Breakfast was not included in my package so I cannot give an opinion!

while it's not located in the most fancy neighbourhood, this hotel has three strong points:
its access to public transport is a matter of meters, the rooms are stylish, modern and not too small and the staff is unbelievably friendly. the checkin was uncomplicated, and in a short conversation the receptionist transfered her good mood to me.
i will come back whenever i have the chance.

In general, the hotel was very nice. I am glad that we purchased a transfer from the airport due to it being quite hard to find. The staff were as helpful as they could be when we arrived and showed us how to get to our room no problem. The room and all areas of the hotel were spotless, there was no dirt at all which made everything feel a little more comfortable on our first night. The breakfast was a continental buffet which ranged from hams to cereals and everything in between which suited our requirements. Outside the hotel is also one of the main underground lines (U3) which means that every tourist attraction is very easy to access from here. If I had to complain about anything it would be that the hotel did not have an iron which wasn't a disaster but I needed a shirt ironed that night! And the other would be that the price of drinks was very expensive (1 bottle of coca cola 500ml cost €4.50)

Conclusion: If I was to travel back to Vienna, I would be sure to stay at this hotel again! Rating: 4/5

Room Tip: If you are looking to use the metro service while in Vienna, this is a great hotel for access to tha...

This time we decided to spend our New year's holidays in Vienna.It turns out a very good decision.The hotel, where we were is Simm's hotel, Vienna.Obviously the hotel is a new, located not in the city center, but next to the subway station just on 10 minutes far from Stefansdom station.I strongly recommend this hotel, because of his:
- tidiness of the rooms
- excellent transport to the city center (10min using subway)
- delicious breakfast
- polite personnel ( the blond waitress on the breakfast is very charming and prompt)
- good price of the rooms per night
- fast wifi everywhere in the hotel
- there is a BILLA shop next to the hotel

Disadvantages are
- there isn't restaurant in the hotel ( but it's not a real problem, because we preferred to stroll around in Vienna and to eat every time in different places)

So, if I have to summarize - excellent hotel in good price and perfect transport communication!

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.

Well we did not get the chance to give a detailed opinion on the hotel as we were told on arrival for a 3 night stay that the hotel was overbooked and that they had arranged for us to be moved to a new hotel. They did offer us a free taxi to the alternative hotel. In hindsight they did us a favour as the alternative, the Zeitgeist Hotel was better located and seemed to be a higher standard and we even got a free breakfast every day! On the plus side the recpetionist at the Simms Hotel was polite but no amount of pleasantness gets over the fact that they had overbooked but were still checking people in whilst we wer ebeing redirected which begs the question as to how they chose who had to be moved and who still had rooms.

Room Tip: Think twice before booking here or at least double check the day before travel that you have a room!
