CHECK AVAILABILITY
The MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz is located in Leopoldstadt, Vienna’s second district, between the Augarten Park and the Danube Canal. A relaxed walk through the small alleys down to the Danube soon takes you to the famous ring road round Vienna's Old Town. St. Stephen’s Cathedral and numerous other points of interest in the town center are easily reached on foot. Schönbrunn and Belvedere Palace are not far, either, thanks to good public transport links. The underground station Schottenring is close to the hostel: from here you can catch the U2, the U4, trams 1, 2 and 31 and no fewer than 9 bus lines. And for those who don’t like to wander far off: take a stroll through lively Leopoldstadt, past uncountable restaurants, the Karmeliter Market with its varied stalls and past the Vienna Criminal Museum to the Ferris wheel in the Prater. Your reward: an incomparable view of Vienna from above.

From the outside the modern, fair-faced concrete building is already an impressive sight thanks to its functional design. From the inside the hostel offers the finest Austrian standards on each of its seven floors.

We found that the hotel had quite young guests during our stay. The vast majority were late teens or just slightly older. The front desk was open 24-7, which is a plus. However, the computer broke down which made it somewhat troublesome to pay for the breakfast, since the minimal creditcard payment was € 15 (this problem can easily be solved if you bring some cash or if you pay for the breakfast upfront). From the hotel, it is about 2 km to the city center (the Parlament or the St Stephen's Cathedral). The closest subway station is approximately half a kilometer away.

First of all Vienna is a magnificent city and Meininger Hotel, with its modern style fits in perfectly. We've (a young couple) been in Vienna for the weekend (2 nights). Hotel is beautiful, the rooms are nice, clean and have modern design. Staying on the edge of the close center of the city it is even possible to walk to see some of the beautiful cities attractions. U-bahn station is 10 min away, so you have a great accessibility to other parts of the city. The staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast buffet is good for the price. We've already made a decision to stay at Meininger hotel if traveling to the city where they have there franchise.

Staff was very helpfull. The room was usually very quiet. The problem was that there was a group of young people, probably teenagers, who liked to talk in the corridor and it was possible to listen to everything through the doors.

I tarvelled alone with a limited budget and booked a room in a women dormitory. As it's the first time with such experience staff suggested me to look at a room first. We saw that neighbours there left such a mess that I had to change for mixed one. Very clean room,other guests were polite and quite when entering/leaving and somebody was sleeping. First day all 4 beds were occupied, second day I stayed there wit the girl. Overall very positive impression from the hotel, staff is nice and helpful. They have all you need, even umbrella when it's raining outside. Free WiFi in the lobby. For 38 EUR in a city center of Vienna - 5 mins walk from Schottenring metro station. Would gladly stay there again! :)

The hotel is new and adapted to younger clients for the informality of the premises, lobby and staff - which is by no means a negative remark. The hotel was clean, everything we had for breakfast was fresh, the staff was very polite and professional. Double deck bed was so hot to my kids (3,5 and 2 yrs old) that they said the best thing they saw in Vienna was the bed :)

It was a perfect place to visit Wien. You can go to the city centre just walking a few minutes. And if you want to go to other places like palaces or parks, it's good communicated with metro lines. The building is new and comfortable, and rooms are a little bit small. And you can use a full equiped kitchen with microwaves, vitro, even oven ;), and a very big fridge where you can keep your food fresh. Everything is shown in English too.
