This is a comfortable and agreeable hotel with good facilities in a very central location close to all amenities, the historic centre and good public transport links. It is usually good value for money and services are of a high standard. I have stayed here on a number of occasions and dined or attended meetings during other visits to Vienna.
The wifi in this hotel is as bad as in so many other Vienna hotels. Free wifi is available, but requires a 12 digit/letter code and a separate code for phone, tablet, laptop etc. It only lasts twenty four hours so on a three day trip with three devices you are coding nine times. The signal has an annoying habit of cutting out. This is not a major complaint, but it should also not be a major issue for the hotel to resolve. Even in Vienna there are hotels which can offer simple, strong continuous wifi for multiple devices.
Room and location
Hotel could not provide room for smokers, as has been booked.
The room was clean and large. There were tea/coffee facilities, free mini bar, iron, everything what can be ever needed during the trip.
good value for central vienna; helpful front desk
bedroom decor seems dated
Excellent location within walking distance to all historical sights in city centre. The hotel itself is very quite and comfortable.
Breakfasts too expensive, nearby traditional Cafe Central (must amongst Viennese caffes) is less than half.
Excellent location: 10 minutes walk from Steffl Cathedral and the metro is right there outside the entrance of the hotel. Free wi-fi is also a good plus. Decent rooms but very old and not refurnished in many years.
Overall the staff was not very professional and did not help out too much. I asked for help on internet and was told to contact swisscom for my problem; I then asked for a map and had to ask for were the hotel was on it: the lady replied very annoyed to my question.... 26€ breakfast buffet seemd too much for the hotel overall
Breakfast buffet was excellent
Bar service was slow - 15 minutes to get a cocktail.
old lift. slow motion when replacing empty items on breakfast buffet
The breakfast was always good and the communial areas always clean
Everything - room was lovely and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding - the best I've ever had in a hotel, in terms of healthy options and choice. The staff were very helpful and courteous at all times. The bar excellent and the pianist is just the best!
