“a very fair deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

I have stayed in this hotel 3 times and have always enjoyed my stay. The district of Josefstadt in Vienna, where this hotel is situated is one of the loveliest and calmest. The hotel itself is clean, very decent, with a good breakfast (typical continental, but all fresh and clean). There is the lovely cafe Hummel two minutes from the hotel and a wonderful little wine bar exactly across the street. You can get to the historical centre of Vienna on foot in 20 minutes or by tram in 5. I recommend this hotel for young travelers or couples and definetely for groups of friends and backpackers.

The hotel is really well located, clean and very comfortable. There was a lovely buffet breakfast each morning from 7.30 to 9.00a.m. We stayed here for 5 nights. There were 3 single beds in the room and then a separate room where the wardrobe was located and then the bathroom as well. Good shower too. I'd definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed 3 nights here. One night was very noisey with students larking aboout till all hours. The hotel staff were very apologetic about this when they were told. The room was pleasant and had everything except toiletries after the first day ! Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choice. All the hotel staff were charming whatever their job. This was a value for money hotel.

Room Tip: Just check if they have any big student groups expected on the same night and avoid it if the answer...

Hotel is well located, clean and has a very reasonable price. Room is basic but very clean, as good as bathroom. The room I've got was quite big, my friends payed much more money for smaller room in another nearby hotel. Breakfast is simple and fresh - coffee, tea, juices, 4-5 kindes of bread, dressings, muesli, milk, jams, butter, 3-4 cheeses, couple of pastramis, vegetables and fruits, eggs etc.
We spent days at city center and at night it was nice to have a plenty of restaurants and bars on Florianigasse street 200 meters from the hotel.
Stuff is very helpful and polite, so I think it's one of the best price/quality/cleaningness/location combinations you can find in Vienna.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

This is more like student dormitory than a hotel. The rooms are very plain, of good size, with ok beds and clean sheets. Mine was looking at the small courtyard and it was actually double room even though I booked the single one. The bathroom is small, so is the shower, but all very clean. The hotel is situated little bit away from the city centre (30 minutes walk to Maria Hilfer Strasse), but the tram and subway stations are very close. It is quiet residential area. The only disturbance was some student practicing violin.
The breakfast was ok, not too many things to chose from.
The bad thing is that the reception is open only from 8 a.m. till 3 p.m.

If you need an accomodation just to spend the night there, than it is a good choice for the price (37 eur/night with breakfast).

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013 via mobile

Being on a budget and not wishing to pay the expensive Vienna hotel rates for other average establishments, we booked this hotel based upon reviews on Tripadvisor. In that respect, the Korotan didn't disappoint. The positives were the helpful and friendly staff and the more than adequate included continental breakfast. Our room wasn't that great, I'm sure it's student accommodation at certain times of the year, given the pin boards on the wall. But the beds were comfortable and the bedding very clean. The bathroom was very clean too and had obviously been recently refitted. The hotel is a bit of a hike out from the city centre, but a five minute walk to Josefstadter Strasse and the regular number 2 tram is minutes to all the sights.

These people really try. The front desk personnel were super plus friendly plus spoke excellent English. The curb appeal is greatly lacking: somber, flat, undistinguished. I am not a hotel snob but I have to admit that my heart sank when I saw this. My thought was, oh man this is a dump and I'm too tired to look for another place. But, we soldiered on and were warmly greeted by the desk clerk. It looks like a roomy dorm, and in keeping with that theme the rooms were like roomy dorm rooms. No amenities in the bathroom (soap comes in a ketchup packet like thing) although the bath tub was one of those fabulous long, deep numbers. The bed was OK, the bath linens were just OK. The front desk is closed for the night but when we had to leave at 5am, the night desk clerk went out of his way to give the cab company contact info in case of a hiccup. He was a very thoughtful, intelligent young man and we had a very interesting conversation as was the young lady on day shift. The location seems to be good and the Korotan is a few blocks away from at least 2 fabulous restaurants (a small Italian place and a traditional Austrian restaurant - both recommended by the hotel staff). The included breakfast was very good and the sort of European breakfast that I like. This place has the bases covered: good heat, quiet, reliable and free wifi, plenty of hot water, a good rate, and an acceptable bed. Just remember that it's no frills.
