“No frills & affordable”
Reviewed 27 March 2008

This hotel provides the bare necessities at a reasonable price. The property was renovated within the last year or two, and is maintained very well. The single rooms are small but are clean and feature new furniture. The large rooms (#11 and #12) are spacious and fit a larger group comfortably. Overall, the hotel is small and offers few luxuries, however the rooms are like new and are extremely clean.

Pension Vera is in a great location. There is a tram stop directly in front of the hotel that will take you to Schottentor, where you can transfer to other trams or the underground, or walk over to Stephansplatz (where the famous cathedral is). This is all in the same vicinity as the University of Vienna and not far from Rathaus (city hall). Additionally, the 13A bus passes directly in front of the Pension Vera and goes to Maria Hilfer Strasse, which offers many shopping options (about 4-5 stops).

The best feature of Pension Vera, however, is Margaret and the rest of the staff. Everyone is extremely helpful in answering questions and providing and assistance you may need. The Pension Vera is lucky to have such a wonderful staff.

One word of warning: the Pension Vera locks their doors during the night - do not get locked out as it is not easy to get back in.

  • Liked — The staff, the cleanliness of the hotel, and the location
  • Disliked — Do not get locked out overnight

Our large room with high ceilings had a sofa and 2 chairs. The breakfast consisted of rolls, boiled egg, cereal, juices, cold meat and cheese. I especially appreciated the hot coffee served with a small pitcher of hot milk. Location was convenient. The tram stopped right in front of the hotel and had easy access to central Vienna. Quiet location although located on busy Alserstrasse. Use of computer.

Not bad, but a little small; also the wireless worked only spottily for me in my room (they suggested that I try it in the breakfast room, one floor above). Also they had to give me a transmitter which I plugged into an outlet for a signal, after giving them a 50€ deposit (which I got back).

Breakfast was decent, and the location is good. Handle on the window behind the bed was broken, keeping the window from being sealed properly (could be a problem in colder months).

Bed was comfortable, and my room faced into a courtyard so it was very quiet.

All in all a decent place so a traveler who wants to be in the city and doesn't require every luxury or accessory.

  • Liked — Comfortable bed, quiet room, in-city location
  • Disliked — Window was drafty, Internet access was spotty, room was small

Me and my family we stayed in a tripple room at Pension Vera, in July 2007. The hotel was recently renovated, and the room was in mint condition. The staff (especially Ms. Margaret) is very friendly and helpful and the location is great (2 tram stations from Votive Church), or walking distance to Ring and Innerstadt. The breakfast is decent, and the cofee very good (as all the cofees served in the city). The hotel was very quiet, despite full occupancy. Excellent value for the money.

I have stayed in this pension on a few occasions now. The rooms were very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The location is also very good, only 15-20 minute walk to Stefan's Platz. Highly recommended!
