A short walk from centre of Vienna . Tram stop almost out side hotel. Very clean rooms . A nice selection of food for breakfast.

We had a room on the main road and the noise of traffic and trams disturbed us at bedtime and woke us at 6 am

Very friendly helpful staff. Food was good, including the restaurant where we had an evening meal.

Because the weather was warm we opened the windows in the room but the traffic noise was intrusive. If you can try to get a room away from the main road

Good location, cleanliness, very good breakfast, comfortable bed and good noise insulation

Don't go to the restaurant in the hotel for dinner or supper, it is expencive and food of bad quality. But it is a very small minus, there are many good restaurants all around

A very warm welcome at the hotel and continued friendliness during the course of our stay. Convenient location for getting tram to the Friedhof and, if you don't mind walking a little, some good restaurants within easy striking distance (Restaurant Sperl & Gasthaus Ubl were both very nice traditional eateries). About a 15 minute walk to the Cathedral and main shopping area. Opera, Hofburg & Belvedere slightly nearer. Would stay again.

Hotel room to the front of the building had some noise of trams, but it wasn't anything to keep us awake.
