Perfect value for money! Central location, low street noise, HD-TV Programs. Highly recommended!

The soundproof quality in the room is not perfect, but for this price is more than enough... :)

Extremely clean hotel, friendly people, nice old building to enjoy the spirit of ancient Austrian buildings but extremely clean and modern rooms. In the case of nice weather you can enjoy your breakfast in a nice small internal garden. The hotel is more than 100 years old and the building was a former residence of the game keepers of the Emperor. The entrance was formerly used by horses. The hotel is located in a strategic position near the Prater: two metro stations nearby and the train station with trains (S7) going straight to the Airoport. I was astonished when I discovered that the hotel has only one star ... it should be classified at least as a three stars hotel!

The direction should provide soap and shampoo in the bathroom instead of the dispenser. People not accustomed to Vienna should know that the Prater is not exactly at the center of the town - which is at three stops of the metro (or 800-1000 meters of easy waking distance).

Our room was wonderful! We'd booked it for three people, and when we arrived at 10 in the morning, our room was all ready and had two rooms connected to each other. The rooms were spacious and very clean. We felt like the room had been used only a few times. Both rooms had a table and chairs. The bathroom was large with a nice shower. Breakfast was nice and included in the price, which was low to begin with. The location was perfect--very close to Praterstern, which was great for all sorts of travel. We also enjoyed the friendly staff and the elevator. The beds were comfortable, and we had tons of towels and pillows. Also, it was a very convenient ride from the airport--just take the S7 right to Praterstern.

The only negative things I can think of were that the smoke from the smoking rooms drifted under our the door of our non-smoking room, but it wasn't horrible. Also, you have to pay for wireless internet, but it's only 3 Euro for 24 hours, which is very reasonable. We'd also heard that you couldn't pay for your room with a card, so we paid with cash, which was fine. There are ATM's all over in the area.

Very good location, close to Wien Nord/Praterstern railway/subway station. Room was small but very clean and nice.

The noise insulation of the room was very poor: we could hear every word from the reception located in the same hallway. Breakfast was insufficient: included only coffee and tea to drink, other drinks (juice or even water) had to be odreder with separate charge. Otherweise breakfast was ok.
