The hotel was not what we expected by any means. From the outside it looked nice the area was ok as well. When we first walked in the first impression was it was a nice average hotel we were not expecting to much, as it was. The man who checked us it was very nice and gave us our key to room 47 which I am still having nightmare about today. The elevator can fit no more than 2 people or 2 luggages and 1 person at a time.
Even though we were no expecting a lot we were not expecting this!!! The floors were uneven, worn out, discolored and dirty. They looked like they had never really been clean there was dust in almost every corner of the run and the rugs were a dark gray were they were supposed to be white. Our feet were black just from walking on the floor and it was like this for our whole stay. Don't expect the room to be dusted while you are there or before you get there for that matter. There were bumps in the floor and you could feel yourself going up and down as you walked on it with every step. I felt like I was waiting for the floor to fall out from underneath me. The furniture was really old and unstable they could have a least gone to get some cheap stuff from IKEA that would have been better. If you want to sleep-in you better cover your eyes because the sun will wake you up at 6am if you are ready for it or now!
I will say that the bathroom was the only plus it seemed to be new and remodeled recently and clean although there was red nail polish spilled all over it which I cleaned because it looked like a murder scene. There is only a bar of hand soap so bring everything else that you need.
The first floor rooms 2 to 8 seems to be better with no problems like we had but we found this out the day we were leaving. There was one girl I had overheard complaining that their rooms had not been clean before they arrived and the short haired lady at the front desk stated that she could not do anything because the cleaning lady (singular) was not there and she was not going to do it. The girl asked to change rooms and the lady at the front desk stated that the girl could not. The hotel does have one computer with internet for free which is a plus because i saw other people looking for a new hotel while I was there. The only place they have for you to leave you luggage is under a table by the front door where anyone could take it. The hotel does not have any Parking and instead they will tell you to go to a parking area about 5 minutes away at a rate of 25 Euro a day.
The hotel is not close to any MAIN train station like other people stated the two main train stations are each a minimum of 2 metro stations away. From Meidling it is 2 stations on the U6 plus 3 on the U4 from the Westbahnhof it is 2 plus about a 10 minute walk from the metro station to the hotel. To center near Church Stephan where everything is at you had to take two metro lines. The U4 and the U1.
Over all for what we paid on booking.com we would have picked something more central and something much nicer for what we paid. But it was New Years Eve so we were kind of stuck.
