Not worth it

Do not book a standard room. The photos of the hotel are of the update renovated rooms which are the executive/superior rooms. The standard room is very old and needs to be updated. I stayed in a non smoking room but could smell the neighbouring rooms smoke. Carpets are old and stained. Only positives, check in staff was pleasant and the location of the hotel was good.

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.

Comfortable character hotel

4 out of 5
Posted Dec 29, 2015
Pros: The old-fashioned character and the breakfast buffet. Very comfortable bed.
Cons: Room interior and furnishings felt a bit tired.
Location: Try Von Walden for food. Very close to the Leopold Museum and Museums Quarter.
I booked a cheap deal for this hotel online, so I think I had one of the more basic rooms. It was very cosy and comfortable, with a good location, right on the main shopping strip and walking distance to the Museums Quarter and Hofburg Palace. The interior felt a bit tired, but I still had a great stay, and having a 5th floor room meant I had a cool view. Good value and delicious breakfast buffet.

Very good location for shops and metro. Hotel is a lovely old building and the finish is what you'd expect from much more expensive places. Lovely staff - very helpful and welcoming.

Old style hotel, with top crew and whisky bar

5 out of 5
Posted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: Beautiful reception and staff that engage in making things good for you, without being pompous about it
Cons: WiFi has been added on by people who don't know how critical it is. Slow and congested. I am sure that detail will get fixed before you get there
Location: Walking distance to everything.
Grandeur that is inhabited by normal people. Really nice. Peter
