The MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz is located in Leopoldstadt, Vienna’s second district, between the Augarten Park and the Danube Canal. A relaxed walk through the small alleys down to the Danube soon takes you to the famous ring road round Vienna's Old Town. St. Stephen’s Cathedral and numerous other points of interest in the town centre are easily reached on foot. Schönbrunn and Belvedere Palace are not far, either, thanks to good public transport links. The underground station Schottenring is close to the hotel: from here you can catch the U2, the U4, trams 1, 2 and 31 and no fewer than 9 bus lines. And for those who don’t like to wander far off: take a stroll through lively Leopoldstadt, past uncountable restaurants, the Karmeliter Market with its varied stalls and past the Vienna Criminal Museum to the Ferris wheel in the Prater.

Liked the very modern clean room. The hotel has a fun modern ´´Ikea´´ vibe. Alot of young people staying there so I was worried that it might get noisy but it didn't. We don't mind to walk and we would rather spend our money in good food and wine than on a room we are hardly in - so this was great.

The room was very small, probably ok for 1 person but cramped for 2. The bathroom is also tiny with no counters only a small ledge again fine for 1 person but not so good for 2

he hotel is great for me because I stay one or two days and is good value for money especially as it is close to the center.

Car parking is a problem. If not will find the place around the hotel, you have to park in the basement and the price is very high for parking.

Very clean hotel and friendly Staff at a good price.

Information given to me by the staff regarding my car and the parking outside the hotel was completely wrong and resulted in my car being impounded and a recovery cost of over 210 Euros so cheap hotel but expensive experience, the big downer was that the Staff and Management did nothing to help me with my predicament, made all the more difficult by my lack of languages, When I complained by email to the management I got no help and was ignored completely on my second attempt.
