Not close from most monuments and places to visit, but close to transports. Warm and friendly staff, and good service! The buffet breakfast was enough, and they had a wide variety of information leaflets in the reception.

This is good place to stay. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is on a quiet street, close to Taborstrasse tube and Praterstern railway station (direct route to VIE airport). City center is within walking distance. The staff in reception was very friendly. One slight issue is that there is no shower gel/shampoo in the bathroom.

It was hard to find smth cheap during winter holidays, and likely enough we found this hotel. Hotel Franzenshof is pretty close to the ferries wheel (15 min walking) and 30 minutes from the center (we really enjoyed the walk, you will see pretty much all your sights in those 30 min). also located right next to the U2 metro...

I stayed here one night and found the hotel to be nice and clean. The location is quite good with a quick five minute walk to the station with three stops right into the city. If you are doing a quick stay then this is perfect.

Hi, There is no connection between the photos on the webiste/booking.com and what you are really offered. We had the smallest room ever (not even 8m2), no garbage bin, no soap/shampoo/shower gel. Only a very small room and a very rude and sarcastic receptionist. For 70 eur/night it was really dissponting. Thank God we didn't stay there for more than...

Excellent stay. This is very good value place to stay - one of the cheaper places to stay in vienna. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The hotel is on a quiet street. It is about 50 m from the Taborstrasse tube and it takes about 5-10 minutes to get to the city center. I would stay again. One...

We rented the "apartment", with two bedrooms and a little dining area. Two of us slept in one bed (it's the twins that are pushed together), one slept in the other bed and one in a fold out foam couch thing (probably more suited for a child but okay for a small adult). The apartment was spotless, the breakfast was...

Location is great, not to far off from center. Easy connection to metro. For people interested, the congress center is also not to far off and easy reachable. Price is great, but you get what you pay for. They also ask you to pay in cash and do not like credit card which is a bit weird. Rooms are rather...

The room was fine with a decent ensuite and cleaned everyday. It was a small size but perfectly adequate. The hotel has good links to a few of the metro lines so is a good base for visiting the centre. However we found the hotel itself to be a bit creepy, it was like stepping back in time in the...

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
