The hotel is situated in the heart of the main shopping street but superb double glazing means no noise from outside at all. Breakfast buffet was populated by wide variety of tasty morsels, hot and cold. Staff friendly and cooperative; hotel very clean. Lift worked fine too!

Very nice hotel with nice staff. Both bathroom and bedroom were great.
The place is locked down after 7 PM, so you know your stuff is secure. The staff let us leave our bags there too, the day we checked out, for the day so we could explore which was great.
I highly recommended this place.

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.

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.
