We stayed there in Dec 2006. It is a great hotel, situated near Vienna's Naschmarkt (market) on Rechte Wienzeile, so it is withinin walking distance of the center. It is an older building, but in great condition, with clean and neat rooms, breakfast is also good. Despite huge crowds in the morning we always managed to find a place, because there are several breakfast rooms.
Unique Quality: The U-bahn statio (subway, U4) is right in front of the hotel entrance and takes you to Karlsplatz.
Directions: ok neighbourhood. If you decide to walk to center just follow Wienzeile to Naschmark and you're there.
Being on the 8th Floor my view over the city wasn't too bad and I could even see the steeples of St Stephans Dom! It was nice way to wake up in the morning!
The large black square block just off centre in the photo is actually a "Flackturm" built as a platform for ack ack guns during WWII. There are several of them around the city - one of them is now the city's aquarium. Due to their density they are too expensive to demolish and so they remain. The one in my photo is used as a theatre advertising hoarding!
Unique Quality: A lovely view from the top floors!
Directions: Pilgramgasse tube station (U4 line)
This hotel was so big it really didn't have an awful lot of character unfortunately - but it was well situated, with the tube station (Pilgramgasse) just 10 metres from the door. It was also very clean and comfortable, breakfast was enormous and the service was good. I would definitely recommend it. The website is excellent too!
Unique Quality: If you want an ashtray (I didn't), they are on the ledge outside the window. If you look along to the other windows you will see them all lined up right the way along the building!! Not a "unique quality" exactly but could be useful to know!
This lovely 4 star hotel was part of a weekend city break package I booked with Travelocity. It had a kind of Art Nouveau look about it and it was centrally situated on Pilgramgasse, a short U-Bahn ride from Wien-Mitte.
The staff were friendly and helpful but oh my goodness they were busy. I guess I should have expected that on a weekend in August. There were three lifts and there was always a long wait. They were always full of Italian tourists, or hotel staff with trolleys of laundry or stuffed wth 5 or 6 suitcases.... if I had ever found the stairs I would have taken them.. it was that busy all the time - except very late at night.
Unique Quality: I had a lovely view, my room was small, ensuit and came complete with minibar and cable TV. It was 127E per night (about 86GBP) - although as I booked as part of a package so it wasn't that much.
There were three restaurants - self service - always busy in the mornings with staff rushing round with HUGE baskets of bread rolls, clearing tables refilling coffee pots etc etc. There was an enormous selection of breakfast things - scrambled eggs, sausages, various breads, rolls, meats, cheeses, jams, fruit, cereal, fruit juices, tea (herbal, black, breakfast etc etc) and coffee. The choices just went on and on. I just wanted toast - but never saw a toaster. I'm not complaining though.
The Reception staff did get a little irate with some guests who just don't understand the *wait quietly in the queue until it's your turn* system which is found in most civilised societies. While I was having my query dealt with, a guy just butted right in and asked a question. The receptionist gave him such a disgusted look ... and said *just wait your turn! - I am dealing with this lady!!* He slunk away with his tail between his legs!!
The hotel had a couple of expensive gift shops which are best avoided. The things they sell can be bought for cheaper elsewhere.
Directions: Take the tube to Pilgramgasse on the U4 (green line). It is directly opposite the entrance to the U-Bahn. Look for all the Italian coaches!
I am looking for a reasonable hotel room in Vienna. Any recommendations? Also, what part of town should I stay in?
Where does one deem reasonable?. You can check some hotels online at www.wotif.com . I stayed at another hotel whilst there but had a look at K + K Palais, right in the heart of the town centre. Looked reasonable to me. Another is www.hrs.com
Hope this helps.
As I live in Vienna I've no idea about hotel prices and endowments, but I recommend a hotel in the 7th or 8th district. They should be chaeper than ones directly in the inner city, but you'll be able to walk in the inner city.
maybe try with hotel ananas (5th district, close to subway), should be inexpensive, or intercity hotel in 7th district.
as i live i vienna, i ma not sure about prices, but I think you can get a good hotel for about € 40-60...
