The quality for the price was great. It's not in the best location in terms of city centre and tourist hot spots, but Vienna's transport is so good it's not a bother. The only thing I could fault about the hotel itself were the very flat, limp pillows (not the best nights' sleep).
10 Jan. - 11 Jan.
Faultless hospitality, utilities and ambience...a joy to stay and return to after a day of exploring the beautiful city
5 Jan. - 6 Jan.
Very conveniently located near the metro. Rooms are comfortable, although wifi is unreliable and hot water in the shower can fluctuate uncomfortably.
