Hotel was close to local transportation, metro, but far from the center of town. The staff was helpful and accommodating. The rooms are much smaller than shown on hotels pictures and I am not sure the sheets had been changed. The breakfast bufete was good and plentiful. Overall the stay was okay.

This was a real Jekyll and Hyde hotel. The extremely good side was the location and the breakfast (mostly...)
However, we had booked an "apartment," which we assumed meant cooking facilities. We had a microwave, but we also had 2 unusable burners on a "stove." More importantly, there were no pots or pans. When we asked reception about this, we were told, "We don't have them...yet." So the apartment does not really offer cooking.
The Hotel claims to have free WIFI. True, but the WIFI is only available in one public room upstairs near the breakfast room. There is no WIFI in the rooms.
The corridor to our room was fairly long. When we first walked down it, we couldn't believe it. The corridor was so stuffy it seemed to have no air. It also had a terrible smell. When we got to the room, we thought about going to reception and asking for a new location. The room had windows and was OK, so we just stayed there. The smell and no air in the corridor remained for the entire 8 nights we had booked for.
The breakfast was varied and very good: a great plus. However, the plates and cups were not quite clean enough. In fact, we learned to check all the dishes for leftover residue, and had to change cups and spoons frequently.
Finally, the TV in our room showed a black and white extremely fuzzy picture when we turned it on. We don't watch TV so it didn't matter to us, but...
All of these problems could be solved easily with more thought and care. It has a youth hostel feel, but nice.

"Great traditional style hotel; excellent location"
This is a great older-style hotel with a grand entrance, just down the road from one of the best pedestrian streets in Vienna. We were pleasantly surprised at how close everything was. About 30 minutes walk to the city centre, along a vibrant shopping street.
Staff were always pleasant and helpful. The room was spotless and very comfortable. It was quite hot during our stay, and an air conditioner would have given our ratings all maximum scores.

Great location on main shopping street. Quiet and comfortable. Staff was very courteous. We had a train to Salzberg early in morning. They prepared a lunch box for us. Breakfast was excellent. Metro station right next to hotel which made it very convenient.

Just southwest of Vienna's historical center, the Mariahilf district is home to the festive, sprawling Naschmarkt, an open-air market selling fresh produce from around the world, exotic spices, cheese, baked goods, meats, and seafood. Al fresco dining ads to the fun. Mariahilfer Strasse, the city's main shopping street, forms the district's northern border.
