“I would never recommend this hotel”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

No porter to help you with your luggage, very old building, very old elevator and very small, you lock the rooms with an actual keys, you have to ring a bell to open the hotel door, no air conditioning only fans and we booked it in august. Beds are very old. Simply it's a two star hotel. If you are used to 4or 5 stars hotels you'll be shocked if you see this place. To be fair the location is the only good thing about this hotel. I stayed there for 10 minutes I couldn't spend the night.

Our group of 6 stayed here for a week over Christmas. This apartment was great- lots of space (for an old-town European hotel), washing machine, dishwasher, wifi (a bit dodgy but mostly worked). Very good location, just a few minutes walk from St Stephens church, the main street, public transport and many restaurants. The lady on reception when we arrived did not speak English, but she was nice and we worked it out.

This pleasant and unobtrusive pension is a typical European pension (bed-and-breakfast) hotel in a rather unusual setting. The hotel is located in the neighborhood just off of the Stadtpark (City Park) in central Vienna. The hotel reception is on the second floor of a large combination residential-commercial typical Viennese courtyard building. My room was very comfortable with a double and also a single bed, in-room bath, TV and small refrigerator. It was very clean and the hotel personnel are very friendly although non-German speakers seem rather scarce. The breakfast is also typical for the region and is generous both in proportion and time available, from 0715-ish to 1030. They also have flats available.
This hotel is not for those who expect four-star of five-star facilities or service; it certainly does not rate the four stars that they advertise. Its location and character are likely not for those who are either novice or high-maintenance travelers. For those who are however a bit adventurous or who are seasoned travelers this is a very good, and VERY reasonably priced-choice for a place to lay one's head in the middle of what can be very expensive central Vienna.

In the Vienna center. Good quality for price. Pleasant welcome.
A little bit noisy in the rooms.
Calm situation
Be careful with the taxi from hotel to airport : he has asked 40 + return !! It's very unpleasant

We chose a four bed apartment at Lumes for its central location and a reasonable list price. But, it does not deserve the stars it advertises. The toilet stank, there were no drapes on the windows so that people from the walk-trough gallery could look onto our bed, none of the doors could be closed to latch and the furniture was shabby. However, the sheets and the towels were clean. It looked as if the apartment was furnished from a second-hand market. If you want to be in the 'Innerstadt' and tolerate the rest - Lumes may be a choice. But, for that price you may also be better off somewhere else.

Room Tip: Read the reviews.

We arrived late in Vienna, finding the place wasn't difficult, the location is very central. We chose the 90sqm appartment. The room was not clean, the furniture was 50 years old, to enter the apartment we had to cross a inner yard balcony. 2 star is a overkill for this "place" that advertises as a four-star hotel.
When we faced the reception that nothing looked as it was shown on pictures or from normal understanding of a 4 star hotel, they threatened to call police (!!!!) and charged the first night anyways.
When in Vienna try to find any other hotel, and by any I mean any other will be probably beter.

The hotel is located on the 2nd floor of what appears to be a large classic multi-story apartment complex. The location of the hotel is very central, just minutes away from city center, the park and many of the attractions in Vienna.

Rooms: The room I stayed in was very large and clean. Though the bathroom was tiny and only fits 1 person at a time. Shower only, no bathtub. The rooms are a bit old and need renovation. The biggest downside is that the room has no air conditioning. When we were there, it was rather humid.

For the price, it's a good value.

Service: There was no service after midnight. Even the reception was closed.
