I booked this hotel for 2 nights and travelled with my partner and 18 month old daughter. I selected a room with mini-bar included and paid slightly extra for this, although I cannot confirm whether this is open to all guests regardless of whether you pay or not. We checked in during the early evening, and were given a card to gain access to our room, you also need this for the lift. The hotel appears to have been completely refurbished and I wasnt disappointed with the room. We walked around the local area on the first night, which has a handful of small restaurants and coffee shops, and found a lovely little family run restaurant, called Infinito (i think), which served homemade cooking and was extremely cheap. It is a little down the road from the bus station, set back off the road - I would highly recommend this. Breakfast in the hotel as great - full buffet breakfast. This hotel is mainly catered for business travellers, therefore please note this hotel is situated in the business district. However, all the sites I visited to book this hotel made out that it was only 0.1m from the city centre, which is rather misleading. The hotel didn;t provide a cot for my daughter (requested one on booking), but they had made up a bed for her. The hotel is about 20-30 minutes walk to the old town, where the majority of the bars, restaurants and tourist attractions are. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a high quality hotel at a low price, who dont mind being slightly away from the centre of town. I also would recommend taking the hour long train to Vienna, catch the 93 bus from near the Presidents palace to the train station. Tickets for the train were 11 euros each for a return ticket.
