Reviewed 14 April 2010

Room was small. Walls were so thin, so that I could hear the neighbor,s as if they were in my room! Outside was very noisy, people were walking in the street throught the night and made noises, I could barely sleep. The room and all sheets and blankets smelled like bleach. There were no air-conditioner, therefore I had to open the window for changing the air. My overall view is very negative, and I won't stay in such a hotel again.

Breakfast was good, rooms very clean and spacy. Walk to Stephansplatz at least 25 mins so bit far away maybe.

We arrived late night, and the hotel staff opened the door after one hour! The building was old and smelled musty, with a very tight space. A guy who was working at the hotel told me the hotel owner didn't spend any penny for a good service, everything was kept as cheap as possible, like the aged furniture, blankets, cleanness,...The shape of the room was strange, walls were dusty as if nobody had lived there ever! The window was broken and glass pieces were glued with tapes!!! The courtains were in a bad shape and unwashed since ages. The mattress was thin and I could feel the springs whenever I turned. After 3 nights I would preffered to stay in the park instead of this hotel. It had no extra facilities and breakfast was something below average.

The entrance was weird and it took several minutes to open the door! The guy standing at the desk was drunk.The pension is located in the upstairs and it is difficult to carry luggages. There is no lift and it is dark in the night. The room was very small. The bed was tiny and uncomfortable and mattress was almost crap, I got back pain after sleeping one night. There was a small space between furnitures, making it hard to walk in the room. The walls were thin so that I could hear people at other rooms and corridor. The bathroom was pretty much small, I could barely fit in the shower. There was no wireless, no TV, no radio and no telephone.

Though our room was clean at Pension Vera (the most important part to us) and we liked the location, we found the hotel to be otherwise unsuitable. I would not stay there again. The entrance way was dark and creepy, and the staff was not helpful or even around much. We stayed on the bottom floor (you enter on the second floor of the building) and the entire floor reeked of cigarette smoke - thankfully, the odor somehow stayed out of our room. However, this smell was really the deal-breaker for us. The location was fine, across the street from a tram stop so easily accessible to different parts of the city. Bottom line - you would be much better off spending your money elsewhere.

Location was just at the outskirts of Innere Stadt where the city center was located. Hotel was next to the tram and bus line, and a few stops from the metro (subway). Transportation was easy and hotel was probably 15 mins away from the city center.
Safe neighborhood with grocery store, restaurants and small shopping boutiques a few doors away.

A hotel with very limited amenities as to be expected for the price. Tiny room with no body soap, shampoo or conditioner, hairdryer or iron. However, free internet service and decent breakfast made up for the lack of amenities.

Hotel staff is excellent. Very helpful in giving directions and providing tips on restaurants, international calling, etc.

For the price, location and quality, Pension Vera is unbeatable. I stayed at this pension for four days while traveling through Europe. The pension is located right outside a tram station which can get you to the Metro station “Schottentor” in a few minutes.
Margaret who is the manager of Pension Vera, is one of the nicest people I have ever met. In fact, she was kind enough to let me use their washing machine to do some laundry as there is no Laundromat located near the Pension. The staff there is very helpful and cheerful. The rooms are extremely clean and neat.
I would recommend this pension to travelers wanting to visit Vienna, expecting great quality without needing to pay the Vienna price for it.
