“What a great stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

My wife and I visited this place in December 2011 for the Christmas markets and found it to be ideally located for that due to the close proximity of the Praterstern train station just a two minute walk away.
From here you can get a train speedily to and from the airport and St Stephens Square (the centre of Vienna) is only 3 stops away.
Don't be alarmed by being so close to the station as its very clean and safe and you don't get any noise.
The street of the hotel has a lovely chocolate shop / coffee house on the corner towards the station and the Gasthaus pub is opposite which serves its own beer and authentic local food. As you leave the hotel and turn left on the opposite side of the street is a small modern bar that serves home made pitta breads. I can't recall the name but it isn't the Italian, Chinese or chophouse!
We used to enjoy walking into the city centre which took around 15 minutes and during December there were lovely rum punch bars on the street corners serving warm punch and sausage sandwiches - superb!
On one such walk we discovered an excellent and reasonably priced restaurant called Elf which is on an alley way just off Fleischmarkt. This was where we had the best food of our trip and they also had some excellent local wines.
Overall we loved Vienna and the hotel is a great place from which to explore it.
The hotel was clean and tidy and the breakfast was comprehensive in terms of food type and hot and cold choices. The staff were great too. The room was maybe a touch narrow but otherwise we had no complaints at all.
Get there and enjoy it!

I have stayed at this hotel three times in the past year or two as it's close to the office I visit and to a railway station on the line from the airport, is very good value and has been reliable and consistent.

The hotel is on a major road so rooms at the front can be noisy when the window is open. It's about 200m from Praterstern station - U-Bahn line 2 and trains on various S-Bahn lines including S7 which goes to Vienna International Airport. (Don't bother with the CAT train from the airport. The S7 line gets you to Praterstern about 10 minutes slower and for a fraction of the price. The S7 trains run every 30 minutes. CAT trains don't go to Praterstern)

I have always been treated politely and helpfully by the front desk and bar staff, who inevitably speak perfect English.

The rooms are slightly old-fashioned and quite small, but they are immaculately clean and have everything I need, including free WiFi. Breakfast is the usual fresh, tasty and varied continental meal.

Room Tip: Try and avoid rooms overlooking Praterstrasse; they can be noisy when the window is open, although t...

I always enjoy my stay here, courtyard rooms are very quiet, spotlessly clean - the hotel everywhere is very clean. I stay in many hotels in UK for business each week and I think they should send their staff for training here! The rooms vary in size but I was lucky enough to be upgraded this time to one of the smart new "Superior Plus" rooms, very good indeed and worthy of at least 4 star. Modern bathroom with classy new shower, wood floor, very comfortable beds.
Location fantastic- train from Airport 5 mins walk away, Underground and trams less than 5 mins walk, can walk to city centre in 15 minutes, through nice old Vienna streets. Got a Coach to Brno in Czech for 8 euros very close to hotel, brand new coach with leather seats, videos and free coffee- "StudentBus".
Staff friendly and helpful as always, free PC in the reading room, nice quiet reading room with some nice books for browsing if weather too bad to go out, and Sauna/ small gym downstairs which hardly seems to be used, a shame as its very clean and new.
Breakfast good, would be nice to have some tomato with the sliced peppers and cucumber to add to some cold meat or cheese, but plenty and always stocked up. Hot bacon and scambled egg tasty, will boil an egg for you if you ask.
Staff don't change, they all stay on which in the Hotel industry is quite something, I've been staying there for more than 4 years and I its same reception staff, so they must be happy employees and looked after by the management. A great hotel in Vienna, but dont tell to many people as I want to be able to get a bed their next time I go!

Room Tip: Courtyard for quiet nights sleep.

Staff were very helpful, breakfast was great, and the rooms were comfortable, if a bit warm. Great value and would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Charming family run hotel in quiet area with quick and easy access to city center via nearby metro (station 2 blocks). One of a kind personal hotel experience, rather than typical chain. Friendly staff recommended Vienna Card for unlimited transportation, and discounts on attractions. The card more than paid for itself. Our room was not large, but clean and quite adequate for the time we spent in our room. Breakfast was included. Although there is no restaurant on premises, there is a cheerful breakfast room with adjoining outdoor patio. Breakfast buffet had many choices of juices, breads, jams, pastries, fruits, meats, cheese, cereals, coffees, hot chocolate, and even cappuccino. Neighborhood had lots of shops, restaurants and bars - felt like a typical neighborhood, not a tourist area. Felt safe walking outdoors even at night. I would choose this hotel again and recommend for tourists or business. Free internet. Helpful staff even offered to store our luggage for 2 weeks while we toured other cities by train.
