“New, clean and quiet”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Good location near a major train station. The hotel is very new, my room even had a "new" smell to it, not unpleasant though.
Check-in was late on a Sunday night and was without any trouble. My room was huge and suitable for wheelchair so the bathroom was very big as well. Huge flat screen tv, good powerful hairdryer, fantastic wi-fi both with reliability and speed. I was amazed at how well the room was isolated both in regards to sound and heat.

Good Location near the Vienna Mainstation (Südbahnhof). There is a big construction area around the Station. But don't worry, the silence in the Hotel is phenomenal.
We missed a Refrigerator in the room.

Dear Max,
comments like yours make us proud about our qualities. And the silence will rise even more, because the great construction area in front of our entrance will hopefully come to an end in the next 2 weeks.
Kind regards,

Nice and clean rooms, posh reception, very good wifi.
Little (approx 800m) away from tube station. No bath tub. No tea coffee.
However kettle was provided on request. Billa supermarket is just few paces away.
Sudatilore train station is walking distace. A day trip to nearby destination like Bratislava is very easy from there.

I stayed in a loft room with my friends for 4 nights, I loved this hotel, clean, modern, spacious room, excellent value for money, cosy bar area, great choice at breakfast buffet, helpful staff, good location, would highly recommend for long or short stay.

I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel looks new and room was very stylish. It is near Vienna central train station and whilst this whole area is currently under construction we didn't hear any noise which was a positive. On arrival much earlier than anticipated we were pleased when the receptionist called housekeeping and managed to get us a room ready, she also provided us with lots of information about Vienna, however when she told us what time breakfast was she failed to mention you have to pay for it (which I wasn't expecting from a 4* hotel) so it came as a surprise after starting to plate up items we were told there was a cost implication. There were s couple of issues with the room: hotel needs to invest in extra pillows as they are very flat once you lie on them making it not great for sleeping; virtually none of the tv channels worked; and the air con was quite difficult to work out we had it on the coldest setting but this was no use.

Dear JoJo, thank you very much for your rating. Usually our reception always informs about the costs of our breakfast-variations and with regards to your review we will train this topic again. We are always trying to get better and such discomfort as “not working tv-channels” shouldn’t happen – you are right! We also know about the problems with the A/C and therefor we are working hard on the usability and capacity of the systems. Let us know, if you are planning a further trip to vienna – our reception will also have extra pillows for you! Would be a pleasure to welcome you again. Kind regards, your Zeitgeist-Team

This was a nice place in an up-and-coming location, convenient to downtown via train.  The hotel is new and the rooms are in good shape.  They even have bikes you can use for free.  Breakfast was lovely.  However, we were there during a hot stretch in July and our AC did not really work, at least at night.  It works fine during the day, but the room becomes a furnace at night.  We were unable to get much sleep as a result.  We mentioned this both days to reception, and they did not purport to know about the issue.  A technician even came to look at the AC in our room, but this was during the day, when it was working fine.  Other guests had the same complaint.  I think maybe the hotel is playing games to try to cut their electric bill by turning the system down/off overnight.  If you have a room facing the courtyard, opening the window will offer little relief.  Consider yourself warned.  One tip in this regard - there are two 'wings' of the hotel which is shaped like an L.  In one arm of the L is the lobby and the restaurant, both of which seemed to have good AC.  In fact, the hallway in that arm was cool, while ours was like a sauna.  I think the rooms in that wing benefit by being located on the same ventilation ducts as the public areas, which they want to keep comfortable. Ergo, see if you can score a room above the restaurant/lobby area as you may fare better with the AC.

Otherwise, it's a lovely hotel in a convenient location with a great breakfast.  But don't stay here in the summer time.

One additional tip.  Don't pay for parking in the hotel's garage, as it can be had for free and in abundance on the street.

Room Tip: See my review.

Dear Guest, thank you for your open and above board review. It’s true that we had problems with our AC. We are official opened since May 2013 and it was the first hot summer for our AC System. We are working hard for upgrade all our climate systems and now we come nearly to an end. That way we dare to promise that at your next summer-trip to vienna, our AC will work perfectly. Wish you a nice summer, your Zeitgeist-Team

Moved here after a traumatic night in a really bad hotel and it was a breath of fresh air

Helpful Staff, parking available, wifi, modern and clean rooms!

We didn't try the breakfast as woke up later but we had cake and snacks in the cafe area.

The hotel is situated in an area which is under developement so I agree with some that it will be a lot better soon. There is a hostel next door so there were slightly noisy people outside in the evenings but not too bad.

There is no mini bar but the hotel does have vending machines and does have a limited room service provision.

They also had a gym and sauna which we didn't get round to checking.

Location wise- really good for access to all the usual tourist spots by both road and public transport.
.

Beautifully clean, Minimalist but good sized rooms (we took a family room for 3 adults which consisted of one comfortable sofa bed and one double) and the small issues we had were swiftly taken care of by young staff who spoke excellent english.

We stayed for 2 nights but could have stayed much longer. If I go back to Vienna I will definitely go here again.
