We stayed here for five nights during our trip in Vienna and overall had great experience. Hotel room/bathroom is quite compact but with efficient layout we got enough space for everything. Hotel is located in a quiet and safe residential area, very short walk to the metro station (U2&U4) that leads you to all the city attractions. If weather is...

It was a half hostel/hotel type place. Very young crowds in the hotel. If you are not bothered about loud teenagers than this is the place for you. The staff are very friendly and the buffet breakfast although very basic was good value for the money. The rooms were very basic but clean. It was although a bit far from...

The hotel is nice hotel, very close to the metro station and close to the center of the city by walk as well. The staff is very nice and kind. Recommended if you are looking for a place to stay not so far from the center. Easy to reach by public transportation.

My wife and us stayed there during a congress in Vienna. It is a good cost/benefit hotel. The room is confortable and clean. The wifi is good. The staff is friendly. The location is close to the metro but far from the tourist points. There is no telefone in the room. There are nice restaurants at a walking distance.

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The room was large, clean and comfortable. There is a pool table downstairs in the bar which kept us entertained one evening for €5 per hour and the staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
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.
