Mostly Very Good Experience, Excellent Breakfast!
Posted Apr 9, 2016
We had a fairly decent or nice stay at Exe Hotel Vienna. From the photos, we expected a bigger room, and a better renovated/refurbished hotel (i.e. a well done job... the hotel is modernized to some degree, made to look clean and new... but the windows/window sills are still very old, with peeling paint, the outside of the hotel doesn't look very appealing, the pool could be a little renovated... so it all gave a feeling of a quickly done surface job... but it's quite decent in the end). The swimming pool is very small but had very pleasant warm water. Too bad there's no windows, it's sort of in a cave in the basement. The fitness facilities were missing some things that were in the hotel's photos. There was no shower gel or shampoo in the gym's showers/bathroom. The tram in front of the hotel wasn't working when we went because of Easter weekend, so transit was more of a pain, but it was ok. The breakfast was quite good, and had some delicious vegetarian options (scrambled/boiled eggs, mushroom ragout, roasted veggies, cereals, yogurt, salads, cheeses)... they even brought me a basket of gluten free bread and muffins!!! The staff was very kind and welcoming, and let us do a late checkout (2pm)... and held our luggage until very late that night. All in all it was a very good stay :)
