Only thing to complain about was the neighbourhood: walking from Vienna Praterstern station to hotel leads you along some a bit seedy establishments (i think those were bordellos). But 2 metro stations are close, 4 stops to Stephanplatz, as is VIC (2 stops or walking distance of 10-15 minutes), where the conferences are usually held.
Except for that, hotel is fresh after renovation, so expect rooms to look and feel better than many 5 star establishments. Clean rooms, pleasant service and smiling receptionist. Usual, very tasty continental breakfast, nothing fancy.
All in all muuuuch more than you expect from what i understand is 3+ star hotel in big city. Compared to some 3 star in London or NY this is insane value for money.
Oh did I mention free 30Mbit internet connection through a stick in the wall? Or Wi-Fi, altough strength of signal leaves something to be desired in some parts of the room.
