My husband and I take college students to Vienna every other year and this was the 5th time (9th time for my husband) that we have stayed here. It has gotten better and it is very cheap for Vienna. But I think we really will look for another place next time. The reasons: the smoking in the lobby and the hallways by the owners and staff. It is AWFUL and the whole place stinks. Many of us had problems (throat, respiratory, etc) and I know it was from the heavy smoke. The internet was TERRIBLE! It would work for 10 minutes and then go off and the manager would have to go hit some sort of re-set. Also it is not very clean in the common areas, although the rooms are clean. They have updated the rooms over the years so they are not as goofy as the first few times we were there. Laminate flooring (not cozy, but much more sanitary), new furniture (the poster that said the old bed was from a 70s porn movie was right!). Breakfast is so-so:rolls, one kind of cheese, one kind of meat, funky orangy-type juice and some spreads. It is very noisy on the front of the hotel, although it is kind of cool to hear the carriages going home at night. Wonderful location, though. Keplerplatz U-Bahn right down the street, tram stop in front of the hotel, grocery store by the U-bahn, liquor store practically next door, several ATMs. I wouldn't say "run away", but I think it might be possible to do better. We'll see next time.
