    Superb

    I was surprised by the hotel in general. The size of the room was spacious, very clean and comfortable with a complete bathroom, minibar and pay movies. If the room would have had a coffeemaker, I would have felt as staying in the comfort of a Hilton Hotel and even better, as the wifi was free and the really excellent breakfast included. Looking at the price of Euro 127 per night, it was one of the cheaper hotels in Vienna, but the service had high standards. I particularly liked the extra service of the reception staff who offered valet service, to park your car in the garage, against a reasonable price of 20 Euro per day. Also convenient was the small supermarket next door. The city centre and U-bahn is within walking distance.

    No remarks. I would book again without hesitation

    Fabulous

    the hotel was located close to the old city center and it was easy to walk to major tourist sites. The staff was friendly; the room was quiet and had A/C as it got warm in Vienna. The breakfast was outstanding. All in all it was an excellent value.

    Fabulous

    I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in a single room. The room was quite small but I had everything I needed including a comfortable bed, a good-sized bathroom, tv, open window and plenty of floor space for my needs. The room was very clean and well-serviced throughout. Even though the hotel is located on a busy road, I was not disturbed by traffic noise. I was conveniently able to gain free internet use on a computer located in the lobby. At all times the staff were helpful and welcoming, and spoke very good English. I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again.

    The buffet breakfast was good but a too expensive and excessive for my liking .However, I was able to get a coffee and croissant at a cafe across the street.

    Fabulous

    This is a decent hotel with a better than average breakfast. The staff was very polite and helpful, and everyone behind the desk spoke English. The room key has an attachment like a paperweight; so, you will have to turn it in at the desk before you leave on an excursion. Viator tours and such will pick you up at the sister hotel down the street. There isn't much to choose from in the way of restaurants on Taborstrasse. I do recommend the Magistrat Restaurant about three blocks to the right coming out of the hotel on the left. They have good food and good prices, and take a credit card. Some don't; so, make sure you have euros or check for credit cards before you order. Many restaurants, particularly the quaint ones allow smoking inside. The Magistrat is no exception. That is its one negative. The staff at City Central will recommend the restaurant at the sister hotel,but if you are on a budget, dodge this one. The other side of the Danube behind Schwedenplatz station has the lion's share of restaurants for all tastes and budgets. The hotel is easy to find on Taborstrasse and is walking distance across the bridge to public transportation. If you need to go to the airport or come from the airport for that matter, there is a place where you can take a tour type bus at the end of Schwedenplatz. Go across the bridge and turn right and go about 300 yards to a side street that is designated for Airport shuttle pickup. The cost is 7 euros one way per person. It leaves every 30 minutes and lets you out directly in front of terminal 1. This is the best way to the airport.

    I don't really see a downside to this hotel. It is a good price, good service, and good location. It is probably about 2 miles from Westbahnhof train station. You will need to take u4 (subway) to Schwedenplatz. You can hoof it from there. Go across the bridge, turn left on Untere Donau, turn right and go about 100 yards on Taborstrassee, and you are there. Hotel is on the right side of the street. Internet is free. Make sure to ask for a print out of the password and code. It changes about every 48 hours. The rooms have airconditioning. One unique feature about breakfast is that they serve champagne. The intent is to mix it with oj and make mimosas. Certain groups that will remain nameless decide to imbibe it straight, and the bottles are empty by 8am; so, get there early if you like mimosas.
