I have been in Vienna three times and the first distinguishing part of Hotel Vienna is the warm welcoming of the employees. Reception was surprisingly helpful, kind, sincere, and willing to make you feel comfortable.
Location of the hotel is also convenient if you don't want to stay in the middle of the city center 24 hours. From airport, it is so easy to reach the hotel. You can take s-bahn S7 and take off train in Wien Praterstern station. From station it takes around 5 minutes on foot. Praterstern is also convenient to connect to metro and you can reach to city center within few stations.
Wireless connection of the hotel works perfectly well inside of the room. Bathroom of the room was spacious, clean and well decorated. The size of the room was fair enough. Decoration was not perfect, but I did not have any complain although we did not have any view from the window because our room was at the behind of the building. Breakfast was average. If you are expecting wide variety of food, you may get disappointed.
One of the shocking part was lack of air conditioning in the rooms. I never thought 4 start hotel without air conditioning. I visited Vienna in August and room was not so hot. We were able to sleep comfortably by opening our window. I am not sure if this works, when the weather is warmer.
In conclusion, due to sincere approach of the employees and location of the hotel; I find this hotel reasonably good. You should make the decision by comparing the room price with other places. In my experience, there was no major complaining side of the hotel. Beware about air conditioning though if you visit in June or July.
