Great hotel with excellent quality-price ratio. We especially enjoyed the breakfast with it's selection of cheese, ham, bread and a lot more. There was even sparkling wine to accompany the cheeses! The room was very clean and comfy, the personnel were cleaning it every day. The only drawback was the WiFi signal in the room which was low and unstable but we were warned about that by the receptionist. There's a good WiFi signal and a computer at the reception. The hotel is very close to U-bahn - Gumpendorferstrasse and also tram and bus stations. I'd highly recommend this hotel!

Very good atmosphere of old Vienna. Lobby was full of flowers with spring smell. Breakfast was quite good. Personnel was very kind and helpful. Thank you. Not far from metro and Westbahnhof, and the most important - very good shopping area in neighborhood. I'll recommend your hotel to my friends.

I found the hotel very good in every respect;breakfast and location were excellent:few minutes to both subway and trams to downtown,main train station (Westbahnhof) and the bus terminal for travel to south,west and east, which for me was most important as I also visited Hungary(by train)and Lower Austria (by bus); service, assistance rendered by staff were excellent nothing was too much trouble(needed help in understanding mobile 'phone bought in Austria which was painstakingly explained by one of the staff !).

The first time we got a quad room and that was really spacious and value for money. But in our next visit we got a smaller room which was more expensive though. But nevertheless, this hotel is very good, excellent staff and located just opposite the train station Grumpondor (U6 line). I would recommend this hotel to all without any hesitation. They have lovely staff especially Mellanie who helped us with the direcations and suggestions.

The positive points are: position really very near the underground station and at the same time very silent, competence and kindness of the staff (it has been a facility for us that one of them speaks italian), the excellent breakfast; the negative ones are furniture and textiles, definitely old, and curtains that seem to need a wash up. More, it is not possible by the web site to understand that breakfast isn't included in the price; as a compensation, children pay half price for it.

As a family who travels extensively the family room provided was huge compared to many other hotels. Although an issue arose the staff quickly handled the problem in a professional manner in order to sort it out. The buffet breakfast was extensive and was a great way to start the day. Well located to the subway it was within easy commute to most of the major attractions. I would not hesitate to use this hotel again.

Although a little out of the center the underground was just yards away from the hotel We stayed in one of the suites which was excellent plenty of space,seating and tables. Very clean and with unobtrusive service. The breakfast was excellent We would reccomend and certainly use again if we return to Vienna. Only two small negative points 1.Not enough English language channels on the TV,s. 2. No In room drink making facilities.

We are a family of five--this room was large --two big rooms. The bathroom was beautiful--looked completely new and spacious. We were about a one minute walk to the subway which took us to the central part of Vienna (which took about 10 minutes). There were also restaurants to choose from in the area--we would recommend this to others.

we booked the suite,which turned out to be just a large bedroom, king bed, two arm chairs and table, desk with chair. Attached was a small single bedroom with a couch in it. The couch needed to be in the large bedroom where the TV was. Bathroom was new and nice. Rooms were spotless. But the floors creaked, squeaked and crumbled with every step, there was absolutely no place to step that didn't squeaked. They put the thin carpet right over the broken wood floor. Funny at first, terribly annoying within an hour or so. Maddening by the time we checked out. Staff was friendly and helpful. Computer available in lobby, no internet in rooms.

Ottima qualita'/prezzo! Personale gentile, colazione abbondante e di qualita'/scelta elevata. Due piccole note: la camera, pur spaziosissima, pulita e elegante, non disponeva di aria condizionata; questo potrebbe essere un problema nei mesi estivi. Inoltre, la TV era di dimensioni veramente piccole rispetto alla distanza dal letto e con programmi esclusivamente in lingua tedesca (a parte un canale in inglese...). Ritorneremo comunque in futuro...

The hotel's restaurant is now closed, permanently. Only the breakfast room is open (and only for breakfast). The neighborhood is not good at night, although it's fine in the daytime. At night, there were far too many streetwalkers to suit me. I feel sorry for the hotel, actually. The rooms are huge and the building is beautiful. It will either find someone to operate the restaurant, again, and get back on track, or it could succumb to the neighborhood and turn into a place that rents rooms by the hour. In this economy, anything could happen.

Very convenient for Westbahnhof, U-Bahn and trams. My room was surprisingly quiet in view of proximity to busy ring road and overlooked a pleasant garden.

We were thrilled to be in a spacious suite decorated with antique furniture. The bathroom was amazing - jetted shower and biggest tub I've seen (hot water didn't last to fill it up. Breakfast was nice - including bacon and eggs you could cook yourself, juices, sparkling wine in nice garden-like inner courtyard. It was close to Westbanhof station and we mastered the subway quickly to get around to the sights.

We had a great stay at the Altwienerhof. The hotel is very individual and charming. Our family room was absolutely huge, well furnished and very clean, with a nice spacious bathroom with both shower and bath. The reception staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant, able to answer (in perfect English) all our queries about public transport, sightseeing etc. The buffet breakfast offered lots of choice, from continental to bacon and eggs (cook your own) and even Bucks Fizz and smoked salmon. The pretty little courtyard garden is great for an evening glass of wine, or for breakfast outside if you prefer. The hotel is not in the nicest part of town (although it is fine) but is incredibly convenient with a bus stop and tube station (Gumperdorfstrasse) very close to take you into the historic centre very quickly. A very nice hotel which I would definitely recommend.

It was an excellent weekend. We had requested a quiet room for two persons and we got a very comfortable suite for the same price. The welcome was very friendly and we got any information we needed. The breakfast was ok, but you have to take it early, because between 9 h and 10 h sometimes it was difficult to get a place without waiting.The meal we took in the restaurant was good with an excellent service.The interieur of the hotel is romantic in "Wiener Jugendstil".

Room was very small and I could feel the springs in the matress; very uncomfortable. The room was off of a main street and therefore quite noisy during the day and at night from passing vehicles. I ate at the hotel restaraunt my first night; the meal was relatively expensive but excellent. The hotel did have better rooms but all the singles appear to be very small and not well equiped. On my return to Vienna to catch my flight back to the US I stayed at Pension FÜNFHAUS (1150, Sperrgasse 12). The rooms were large and bright and the bedding confortable although very firm. The bathroom was well proportioned. Being a Pension there were no luxuries but all in all a much better value.

Parfait comme situation et tout à fait adapté en famille et probablement en groupe.Prix très raisonnables en passant par Venere. Piement possible par carte ce qui est une grande facilité. Regret de n'avoir pas eu une chambre donnant sur la cour et le jardin car la rue est tout de même bruyante en permanence(il faut dire que nous vivons habituellement dans un endroit très calme avec un grand jardin)Chambre familiale immense où nous étions 4 et aurions pu être 5. Petit déjeuner très complet. Regret qu'il n'y ait pas de possibilité de repas le Dimanche soir mais il faut bien un jour de "relache". Notre accueil a été tout à fait satisfaisant et le dernier soir seulement la personne d'accueil ce jour là était visiblement peu enthousiaste à l'idée que nous voulions souper à deux (sans nos enfants)sur place sous prétexte qu'il y avait un grand groupe de Japonais. Elle nous a demandé de venir à 21 heures et lorsque nous sommes descendus à 20 heures 40, nous avons bien cru qu'elle allait nous dire que ce n'était plus possible!!! C'est la seule fausse note...mais c'est toujours dommage d'avoir le sentiment que votre interlocuteur n'a plus envie de travailler alors qu'il est en service.

The hotel was ok, but they had our reservation changed around to saying we had 2 adults and 2 children in their "family room" instead of the 4 adults I put down and thus had a double bed and two single beds that had no space to be adjoined- much to the dismay of my husband and myself. Overall the stay was nice, but I warn against using their parking garage because it was expensive and we couldn't even park there one night because someone had walked away with their garage door opener. Also if you want internet be sure to ask to stay in the old wing because none of the new wing has internet even though all the employees thought it was something we did wrong to not get internet. If looking for a no frills hotel that is very quick to get on the subway this is it- the breakfast is also very good.

I booked it just because the relative low price of a single room. General speaking, the location is good, 2 subway stations from westbahnhof. The room is clean but small. But the reception is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is servived in the garden, so it is a plus to this hotel.If you just want to find a place to sleep, this is a good choice.

I reserved a family room and it was spacious and quiet. Good breakfast. The hotel is not in the center of Vienna but a metro station is close to the property (100m). Very easy to reach the facility by car.

Ein gutes Hotel, in dem ich gerne wieder wohnen moechte. Werde es auch allen meinen Freunden anraten, und natuerlich auch meiner Familie. Besonderer Anreiz: Die Fruehstueckraeumlichkeiten erinnen im Stil und Aussehen an die Wandelhallen in der "Josephstadt". Alle sind freundlich. Mariahilfer Guertel und Sechshauserstrasse sind eine Katastrophe in bezug auf stadtgerechte gute Atmosphaere. Wie koennen da die Wiener eigentlich existieren? Viel Schmutz und Laerm. Aber davon merkt man im Hotel eigentlich nichts.

E' stata una piacevole sorpresa, sicuramente l'hotel con il miglior rapporto qualità/prezzo di tutti quelli che ho avuto modo di frequentare in giro per l'Europa. Consigliabile, a mio giudizio, soprattutto per le famiglie.

Very nice hotel with excelent breakfast / evening meal facilities. Very good value for money being slightly further from the centre but within 50m of metro train and tram facilities with very efficient public transport facilities. Friendly and helpful staff. Quiet location with nice garden.

As far as European hotel rooms go, this one was very large (we had a suite) and had a large soaking tub (which was a nice surprise). The hotel is old and looks old. The neighborhood of the hotel wasn't great, but it was across the street from the subway and allowed us to travel all over without difficulty. We had no problems and there were several places to eat close by. The hotel staff was excellent and very helpful with directions, suggestions, and even made us a light breakfast for our extremely early flight, which was far earlier than they would have prepared for normally. Overall, the hotel was great. It may be just a little bit expensive for the neighborhood, but the large room, bathtub, and staff made up for any harsh feelings we had about the money.

The hotel is very old.. They say it was renovated lately.. I would like to see how it was before but now, the carpet in the halls and in the room are cut, opened old, very used. My single room was very very small, so small I could turn around with a medium size luggage. The buffet for breakfast was ok, the people serving and helping were nice and polite. In the service's description of the hotel on Venere, they say they have airport and train station shuttle... Don't try to find them.. there is none... I even called before from Prague to tell them I would arrived by train the next day but they laughed and said I had to take a taxi because there wasn't any shuttle. False publicity?? at least, wrong information.

I absolutely loved this hotel. It was soooo charming. Internet service available, Ubahn station nearby - took about three or four minutes to get downtown; staff wonderful.

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and 16-year old son in August. We had a triple room, which was very spacious, with a separate room for my son. My complaints are the beds, which were very hard and uncomfortable, with the springs poking into your body at night, no air conditioning, which meant that it was stuffy in the room, and the very noisy traffic, which could be heard from the room. The breakfast buffet was quite good, but the room was too small for the number of guests at the hotel. When I asked for cappuccino, I got espresso with whipped cream (is the the Viennese version?) I would not stay at this hotel again.

Hotel staff was exceptionally good to us. They arranged for a shuttle to take us from the airport directly to the hotel. When we arrived at night, my wife unexpectedly needed prescription medications. The front desk clerk located the nearest all-night pharmacy, gave us detailed instructions, and even offered to escort us there if necessary (it wasn't...pharmacy was only a few blocks away and his instructions were clear). Another clerk assisted us in finding the best place to change dollars to Euros. Breakfast was fine and in a charming room. We didn't try dinner at the hotel's restaurant, but the menu looked good and it looked popular...probably would have been fine. Location is on a quiet side street, but only drawback is that the hotel is outside of the main "ring" area. The neighborhood didn't have a lot of attractions, but seemed perfectly safe. We had a great first night dinner (schnitzel, ribs, dumplings) in a nearby bar. Despite this small drawback, the hotel is very close to Westbanhof (easy 5-min walk) (train and U-bahn) and less than a minute's walk from an S-bahn station so no problem getting to St. Stephan's or anywhere within a few minutes. All in all, a charming place, would certainly be more than willing to go there again. They were expecting us, had a third bed all set before our arrival (in USA, even the best hotels often fail to do this. Rate was consistent with what we paid in other cities we visited, and was exactly as agreed in Venere.

The hotel was ok some areas. I it also might need some renovations. The staff was great. As for the location, was a little bit far from the Opera area where all the fun and night lift is. The shops are a 7 minute walk from the hotel, but was not my kind of shops. If brand names you fancy, then the opera is the place. I was shocked for the fact that they did not have a baggage handler. I think that the picutres on the website should be changed because I never saw the torn chairs arm rest. The bathroom looked nothing like the picture on the web. I think the renovations were made for the lobby only.
