A nice and modern hotel
We spent a week in Ibis Wien Mariahilf - a modern and comfortable hotel, situated close to the railway station "Westbahnhof" and within walking distance to the city center and the main shopping street Mariahilferstrasse.
Famous 3-star hotel chain in Austria
If you'd like to be the main train station and metro, then try
Hotel Ibis Wien Mariahilf
This is a 3-star hotel and the rate applies for a room which has a capacity of 2 people. It is 200 meters away from Westbahnhof railway station and a stone's away from Mariahilfer Strasse - the longest shopping street in Vienna. The nearest metro station is U6 Westbahnhof station. You change to metro line U3 and you will find yourself in the city centre (Stephansdom - the most famous landmark of Vienna). You take U4 and you can visit Schoenbruenn Palace. It is said that it won't take 10 minutes by metro/underground to reach the city centre. If you'd like to visit a musical, your hotel is also close to the Raimundtheater.
Like in any city, a hotel near the main train station means there are many travellers or foreigners so I suggest that you be careful with your wallet. And take note, no Austrian policeman will ask for your passport (not even to inspect your bag). Austrians are very helpful. In case something happens, just catch attention for help and Austrians will come to your aid.
Unique Quality: Clean hotel with 341 rooms. Friendly staffs. Small souvenir shop. It has a bar and a restaurant.
Directions: Walking distance from Westbahnhof station (but if you have many luggage, then take a tram from there - it's one station away).
Ibis Wien Mariahilf
This hotel is conveniently located only for its proximity to the main Westbahnhof station. It's a long way from town, but it is close to the U-Bahn station, so with a ticket you can be in the center in a few minutes. It's comfortable and clean, but nothing special. You don't get a great deal for the price, but for Vienna it is almost acceptable. The best thing about the hotel is the views from the upper floors, and if you can get one of these rooms I'd say they are just about worth the price. Every morning and night I was treated to a different sunset and sunrise, one clear and sunny, one rainy and overcast, and several with varying layers of snow and ice. From my vantage point on the 10th floor, I could see all the way to the city center and the cathedral, and beyond.
In addition to the 67-71 euros a night cost, everything else in the hotel was expensive too. There was no mini-bar, but you could buy snacks and drinks in numerous automatic dispensers on several floors. There was also a restaurant and a convenient 24-hour snack bar. I preferred to make use of the nearby supermarkets, restaurants and shops on the nearby Marienhilfstrasse, which is possibly Vienna's biggest shopping street. In addition they offer Wi-Fi internet access, but it is the expensive rip-off T-Mobile service. Again I relented on my "never again" promise and paid up, only to again be ripped off by constant downtime.
I suspect there are better hotels in Vienna, and the next time I visit I will try and find one, but the Ibis is certainly not one I would try and avoid in future, and I can recommend it just for the view.
Unique Quality: Great city views from the upper floors.
Directions: Take a right after leaving the Westbahnhof, and keep walking until you see the great Ibis towering up on the other side of the road.
we were there a week before christmas. it was full so u probably need to make a reservation if u want to go that time of year, cos vienna is packed then. it is at the end of vienna's biggest shopping street so u can walk to the city center or take the u-bahn which is also near and takes u directly to stephans platz. room was cosy, with tv and pretty spacious, nice view at a big old church.
Unique Quality: breakfast is great, don't miss it ;)
Directions: residential area, big avenue but peaceful
IBIS - you always know what you are going to get.
As I say - if you not sure, choose IBIS and you always know what you are going to get. IBIS Wien Mariahilf is a nice, not expensive hotel located in Westbahnhof area right next to Mariahilferstrasse, which is a very good shopping street.
All the tourist places are not far from there:
Touristenzentrum PRATER (7.00km)
Touristenzentrum SCHLOSS SCHÖNBRUNN (3.00km)
Unterhaltungs-und Theaterviertel RAIMUNDTHEATER (0.10km)
Unterhaltungs-und Theaterviertel THEATER AN DER WIEN (2.00km)
Unterhaltungs-und Theaterviertel VOLKSTHEATER (2.00km)
Sportzentrum STADTHALLE (1.00km)
Kongresszentrum AUSTRIA CENTER VIENNA (9.00km)
Messegelände MESSEGELÄNDE (7.00km)
Great smile and service from hotel staff. The rooms were small but very clean and comfortable. Parking is available at a very reasonable price. The Underground metro is only a short walking distance from the hotel. The shopping district is just a block away.
Unique Quality: Good food in their restaurant.
Directions: It is right between the Gurtel and Mariahilfer Strasse. Just a short walking distance from the Westbahnhof train station.
just 2 blocks from Westbahnhof
Hotel Ibis is just about 300 meters off Westbahnhof - Vienna's biggest train-station.
This hotel has plenty of rooms and will - like most Ibis-hotels - offer good rates at special dates or the weekends !
Unique Quality: This big hotel with more than 15 floors was built completely new a few years ago, directely on the Guertel ( the street with the most heavy trafic in Vienna)
The windows are certainly sound-proof, but you have to be prepared that sleeping with open window will be almost impossible.
Tram Nr. 6 and 18 are directely opposite the hotel.
The subway to the centre is in a distance of 300 meters.
Directions: When leaving the train-station turn to the right, cross Mariahilfer Strasse, walk along the Guertel and cross it when you get to the church.
From Suedbahnhof - take tram 18
More about Ibis Wien Mariahilf
Can anyone tell me which district the IBIS hotels are in as i can't work it out.
Ibis Wien Messe, Lassallestrasse 7a
Ibis Wien Mariahilf, Mariahilfer GÃ¼rtel 22-24 - 1060
Ibis Wien Schoenbrunnerstrasse, Schoenbrunnerstrasse 92 - 1050
Has anyone stayed at any of these and what's your thoughts on it?
I'm flying in from Venice in the morning and leaving early the following morning so looking for something relatively cheap but pretty central to be able to see as much as possible in the short time I have there.
Re: IBIS vienna
I haven't stayed at any hotel in Vienna, because I used to live there myself. But at least I can tell you which districts these hotels are in:
Lassallestrasse: 2nd district (close to U-Bahn station Praterstern)
Mariahilfer Guertel: 6th district (close to U-Bahn station Westbahnhof)
Schoenbrunner Strasse 5th district (close to U-Bahn station Margaretenguertel)
Re: IBIS vienna
If you choose the Ibis Marifhilfergürtel you are walking distance to the airport bus - saving you some valuable time. Otherwise the one in the Lassallerstrasse is close to the U1 and Schnellbahn services - both of which connect into the airport train services (CAT and Schnellbahn services).
