Stayed here for 2 nights and I was glad when it was over. Everything in the room was falling apart, the wifi only works in the lobby (not ideal when your room is on the 4th floor!) and the hotel itself is a depressing place to stay. As with the majority of other reviewers, I would strongly recommend you spend...

This hotel was OK. The location is ideal if you are arriving or departing by train as a very short walk to the Wien Hauptbahnhof. Also close to the Südtiroler Platz Hauptbahnhof U-Bahn station which is a great and cheap way to explore Vienna. The room itself was clean but the all-in-one bathroom/shower was a bit grim as it didn't...

The hotel is very close to the Hauptbahnhof with connection to the airport. No wi-fi signal in our 2nd floor room for our 5-days stay. The receptionists were laughing ironically when we were complaining and told us that no one else had ever complained about wi-fi. Spider nest hanging from the ceiling. Dirty chairs inside the room, smelly toilet. Doors...

Never been in this kind of hotel before. A no star for me,but I have to give 1 at least to be added. Noisy, dirty and outdated. Only plus side is its in front of the train station. But have better places in city center than this hotel. No aircon, only electric fan in 30 degree Celsius weather.

Also half a block walk to the underground metro so easy to get around the city and close to Belvedere palace.

As I arrived to the hotel, they gave me a room with a mattress so old that would have been impossible to sleep on. I went to reception to ask them to change it; no other available.
