The hotel is nice hotel, very close to the metro station and close to the center of the city by walk as well. The staff is very nice and kind. Recommended if you are looking for a place to stay not so far from the center. Easy to reach by public transportation.

My wife and us stayed there during a congress in Vienna. It is a good cost/benefit hotel. The room is confortable and clean. The wifi is good. The staff is friendly. The location is close to the metro but far from the tourist points. There is no telefone in the room. There are nice restaurants at a walking distance.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The room was large, clean and comfortable. There is a pool table downstairs in the bar which kept us entertained one evening for €5 per hour and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The location was great too as it is just a 10 minute walk from the city centre...

I stayed here for 2 nights and while the location is excellent (close to metro station), the facility clean, it really was the staff who made my stay worthwhile.

I've stayed there for two nights together with my boyfriend and the place is great. The check in was quick and the room was clean and big enough for two people. The breakfast was totally fine and the place is close to the metro station "schottenring" (5 minutes to walk). You also only walk 15 minutes to the city center....

Stayed here one night in a single room during an extended layover in Vienna. Easy check-in and orientation from staff. The room was small but efficiently designed, and very clean. Wifi worked well. Less than a 20 minute walk to the main tourist areas, and close to Danube canal where you can walk, relax or grab a drink outdoors. As...

A very big hostel so perhaps felt a little impersonal and I prefer small hostels than big sprawling ones. Was very clean and well maintained. Beds were good, lights and plugs provided for all bunks. Perhaps the top bunks could have a curtain. Room allocations seemed good with older travellers together.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
