Hotel Cyrus
Ranked #100 of 116 Vienna B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 June 2012

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you are bothered by street noise.

Owner/manger took entire weeks money off us as we walked in door, which was a bit surprising. Also wanted to know if we wanted breakfast so we paid, THEN found to our cost it was lousy. He of curse refused to refund "because we had paid by credit card" - derrh, how stupid does he think punters are?
So just pay for breakfast each day when u come down, and if u don't like it go elsewhere. it's crepe because:-coffee stewed, no fruit, no cereal, o.juice poor. I know it's only €3, but MacDonald's round corner is only 63c. more and u get a superb spread.
Room door has the sound insulation quality of tissue paper, despite feeling very solid - careless?
managers all chain-smoke in reception which is revolting.

Room Tip: ask for room that overlooks courtyard, road is a bit noisy.

Room offered by HRS doesn't exist. It is better to pay 20 euro more and have a room with nice room and internet access and serviced which were listed at this hotel.
No internet not even in reception, poor breakfast, boring atmosphere.
During our stay was a construction site with a lot of noise.

The hotel is located near the subway, so the center can be reached in 3 minutes.
The room was huge (we booked four hours before our arrival a double room but they gave us a room for four and I think they charged us 10 euros more), the bathroom is normal, there is a box shower but not the hairdryer, no safe, television.
Our room faced the street, with windows open the traffic can be heard but it is bearable. There is no wireless in the rooms, if you need internet you have to go in the lobby.
Breakfast is not included, you can have it for 3 euros.
Upon your arrival you will receive a card that you can open the main door and your room. Not particularly cheap but if you decide last minute to stay in Vienna, I recommend it.

The exterior doesn't look very promising and the common areas could do with one or more refurbishments, but the room was huge and the heating was great... maybe too hot.
Good value for the price, considering the crazy prices in Vienna.

Stayed 29 Dec to 5 Jan.
the room was huge and full of power outlets. The furniture was new and the mattresses and pillows very comfy.
the wifi didn't cover the room, just the reception area.
The toilet was super tiny but at least there was plenty of hot water. The weather outside was very cold but the room was steaming hot all day and night.
The location is outside the city center but it's very close to the metro station.
It was the cheapest I could find in Vienna and I wasn't dissapointed.
Great value for money.
