The Meininger Downtown Sisi is a perfect place for a shot 1-2-day visit to Vienna. Quite basic but clean. Ideally located just 10-15 mins walk from a historical center. You can get there also easily with neighbouring subway or rent-a-bike station ( 5 mins ). The staff is very frienly and helpful, several of them speak in various languages. Reception... More

The room has satellite TV and fast, free wifi in the room. I didn't try the optional breakfast. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood (no nightlife but it's quiet). It's about a 10... More

It was a nice hotel situated 8-10 mins walk from underground, hotel rooms were clean and the staff were all very friendly. The area around was extremely quiet, not a single noise get into the room. Not much restaurant nearby so maybe you have to order delivery or get your take-away Overall, a very good experience.

As a chain hotel, you can have an idea of what to expect. Technically speaking everything was fine, the room was clean and functional, breakfast adequate, location is ok (15 min. Walking to center). We can't complain, we just missed the charm of a friendlier place. Service was good, but rather cold. There is a (expensive) parking lot 150m. Away.

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.
