Hotel Rustler is the BEST place in Wien to stay!!! It is warm, CLEAN, well attended, and Bernhard is truly helpful! He will help you find what you need, where you need to go, and what to expect while in Wien. He is just a short walk from the LARGEST IMAX in Europe! When you turn the corner just a couple blocks from Hotel Rustler's front door-there stands Schönbrunn Palace and its wonderous grounds just waiting to be explored!
There is a film theater literally across the street from the Hotel Rustler and Straßenbahnen (Streetcars) are literally a matter of a hundred feet or so from the door! He offers a standard continental breakfast, but it is great, NEVER stale (as I have encountered at other places in Europe), and the breakfast room allows you to see Wien getting ready for the day, while you eat!
The backyard is nicely laid out and during the Summer you can enjoy the splendid greenery. The rail line is on the backside of the hotel, but it didn't bother me one bit-after a long day of visiting museums, the Spanish riding stables, eating hearty meals at great restaurants, and imbibing of great Viennese biers, sleep was no problem!
So........if you want a great place to stay for cheap ($30 bucks for a starting price in the heart of Wien), that is clean, where you will find superb help, and quick transport right out the front door, stay at Hotel Rustler!!!
Unique Quality: The fact that the Streetcars are almost literally out the front door cannot be excessively touted. The ease of travel is superb and you can get to "the Ring" right quickly, or go to the Vienna cemetery to see where the greats of Classical Music are buried (some modern artists, such as Falco, are also buried there).
The Largest IMAX theatre in all of Europe is also just a few blocks from the front door of the Hotel Rustler!
When you take a right out of Rustler's front door, walk down to the corner and turn right again, there just several blocks distant is the entrance to Palace Schönbrunn-where Mozart played, Napolean slept, and the Hapsburgs ruled! The servants quarters housed 2,000 people-and all they did was to keep the place clean and fulfill the needs of the Hapsburgs and their guests!
The Gardens are beyond compare and there is even a small zoo to be visited. The cafe with its superb view is worth the walk up the hill, where you can contemplate the day and take in a good portion of Wien in the distance.
Directions: The hotel literally has the Streetcar stops for cars 10 and 52 right out the front door, right within your sight. The Ring is only mintues way, as is the Spanish Riding School.
