XYZ: Stay in Bratislava!!!
Somebody advised me to stay in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, which is only 50 minutes drive from Vienna, if I wanted a cheap accomodation. It was a great suggestion and I would go ahead to recommend it. Vienna is a very expensive city and you pay not less than 25 euros for a hostel bed per night, while for similar accomodation in Bratislava, you only pay 11 - 15 euros per night. Transportation between the two cities is also very cheap and frequent.

Pension Moser: very interesting breakfast room
I had a single room. I was dissapointed of it, in fact, but it was a place to sleep and this was the most important thing for me. Very cold and poor inside, a typical smell for a very old building, but having my own shower and toilett was nice. And it was quiet.
But much to expensive (38 euro per night!).
Very old, very charming, very full of history place ..... I mean the breakfast room down stairs. It is like a small museum and the ladies are indeed very nice. I was impressed about all the ancient things I saw there.

Hostel Praterstern: clean accommodation in Vienna
It is really a very nice Hostel on Mayergasse, underground station: Nestroyplatz (you go outside and ae on Praterstrasse, from exit you go back and in maximum 5 minutes you find Mayergasse on your right side and the Hostel is very easy to be seen).
They offer bikes to rent for 12 Euros per day (Sept.2007).
I had a single charming room, it is very clean everwhere, only the doors are very loud and can make you craizy, if you stay too long in the room.
I payed 28 Euro per night for single room.
Bikes to rent!!

City Hotel Albrecht: A great price-quality ratio hotel!
I have stayed in this 3-star hotel in Schwechat (a suburb of Vienna) in the middle of July 2007 and I can assure you this is a very good and reasonably priced hotel in Vienna! This not so big hotel is family owned and offers cosy rooms with almost all the amenities of the best hotels for 55 euro per night per a single room - 24 hour check-in, free Internet access at all rooms(high speed wireless LAN), LCD TVs with 50 channels amd a parking. The price also includes a buffet breakfast in the cafe of the hotel.
The hotel has a very good location - it's near to the International airport and also to the centre of Vienna. If you take a taxi it will cost you about 14 euro from the airport to the hotel and about 25 euro from the hotel to the city centre.
The hotel is not perfect though. The personnel is very friendly, but doesn't speak English for instance and this could cause some problems for English speaking tourists. The rooms are also not air-conditioned and have fans instead of air-conditioners.
Great price-quality ratio hotel with a nice location - it's only 10 min away from the airport and 30 min away from the centre of Vienna by car/train/bus.

Gastehaus des Deutchen Ordens: Stephandsom provides the wake-up call
Sticking with the unusual acommodation theme, this time I stayed at the convent of the Deutschen Orden, which is situated in Singerstrasse right next to Stephandsdom. In this building is the order's church, a museum of ecclesiastical treasures, a beautifully decorated hall where Mozart concerts are performed and on the third floor, the guesthouse. Entry from the street is through an arch and the whole complex is built around a large cobbled courtyard.
Guest rooms are bright and comfortable with en-suite and TV and an adequate breakfast is included in the price. This is an excellent choice for a central location but for me it presented some difficulties. As I don't use elevators, climbing 81 steps every time I needed to go back to my room was more than a little exhausting. Getting in at night involved unlocking four different doors before you reached the guest rooms and this I found very tiresome as well - especially on the occasions when the light went out as I fumbled with the keys.
The obviously unique qualities of this accommodation are its wonderful location and its history. Mozart once lived here and as a guest you can sit in the courtyard and enjoy the music from the concerts inside. Lying in bed on weekend mornings you can hear, singing from the cathedral and music from the streets. The roof and spire of Stephandsdom are visible at every turn and everything is right at your doorstep.
The other unique quality of this accommodation is that it is not open to everybody. Traditionally,such places are reserved for pilgrims and penitents but I believe that anyone who would enjoy staying in a place like this ( and let's face it, it's not going to suit that many people ) should ring up and ask if it's possible. It is after all a business and if there are vacancies they would probably be open to negotiation. It's worth a try.

Appartements Augarten: Apartments
Several Apartment sizes to choose from. Very clean and well equipped - just as pictured on the website. Tram stop is about 50 m from the entrance, very convenient with only a couple stops to Schwedenplatz (Red and Green U-bahn lines). Grocery (directly across the street) and Cafe's are close as well. The 1 bedroom we had was very spacious and easily could have accommodated 4 adults (we had 2+1 child) comfortably for a good value, especially if you cook a little to save restarant costs.
Owner, Beatrix Walkner was a super nice and very helpful lady - and the basis for my recommendation. She gave us some good tips on getting around on the public transport and other info on the city. She was also very flexible when we had a last minute change in our travel plans. It was a pleasure to do business with her.

Benedictushaus, Schottenstift: Monastic Rule
Staying at the Schottenstift Monastery Guesthouse was the single best thing about my trip to Vienna. I can't imagine any hotel which would have pleased me so much or any more perfect location. The Schottenstift was founded in 1155 and while the gueshouse is relatively modern, the entry through the vast door and up the winding staircase is staight out of some medieval knight-templars tale. There is one triple room here and it is worth booking for two, just for the view.
Directly opening on to the street, every morning I could throw open the windows and savour all the sights and sounds of Freyung and the Christmas market. Waking up to pealing bells was a constant pleasure and coming home each evening to this warm, other-worldy haven right in the centre of everything was a thrill every time. Breakfast is included in the price and while it does not include any hot foods ( like bacon and eggs) there are loads of cheese, salami, breads, cereals, fruit etc.
Rates for 2007 are : Single with bath and breakfast, 60 Euro
Double " " " " 90 Euro
Triple " " " " 108
There is a small extra charge for staying just one night. The Benedictushaus is open to all. though not very many people know about it. Bookings through the website.
Firstly it's part of an old Benedictine monastery and you can hear the monks chanting sometimes when coming in or out. Seconly, its location is perfect:right in the centre of the city,close to the Hofburg, Stepandsom and all the other attractions. In short it's different, atmospheric and a completely new experience.

Apartment rental: Very nice accommodations
As mentioned a few times before, LJ had lived in Vienna for nine years, so she has many friends in the area. One of them was able to rent us an apartment (at a very good price I must say) for our entire time there. It was a fully furnished apartment with washer/dryer (in the basement), elevator, gas stove, oven, microwave, full-sized fridge, TV, bathroom with shower, desk, and full sized (pullout) bed...to name a few of the amenities.
The apartment was located in the 18th District in a nice quiet residential area close to the tram (trolley lines...#40 & #41), restaurants, grocery store, cleaners, Tabak, hospital and Turkenschanzpark (for my daily jog and meeting people).

The owner was cool, very friendly and good english speaker.

Jugendgästehaus: A Vienna Hostel
The hostel's divided into 2 buildings, facing each other. It has its own canteen and a disco (teenagers only). Boys/Men and girls/women are separated. Most rooms have 6-8 beds.There's 1 key to all the rooms on the floor! Each floor has 1 bathroom with 3-4 showers (no cabins!), 4 toilets and several washbasins. Don't smoke or use spray in the room if you don't have 350 euros to spare for the arrival of the Fire Brigade.
The service's OK, despite everything.
It's located not far from Mariahilfer Straße, 1 of the famous shopping streets in Vienna.

Gally apts: convenient location
We stayed at the Gally apartments. I found them on the internet. They were ok. Not luxurious but they had a clean bath and kitchen. It was a short walk to the Westbahnhof. Very close to markets, cafes and other shopping. I guess that's true of almost anywhere you stay in Vienna. Mainly It was a good price and we were trying to save money for travel.

Haus Döbling: Living in Vienna on a shoestring
I stayed here for a couple of weeks when I first arrived in Vienna and was looking for a flat to move into. Back then I paid ATS 2700 for 2 weeks - that was in fact the fee for a month (or part thereof!). The current rate is US$175 per month for summer 2005 - based on spending 3 months there. I had a small room with shower on the sixth floor of the building and shared a communal kitchen with a lot of students. The inhabitants are a mixture of students, immigrants - in particular families - and people on an extended trip to Vienna. For a fortnight it was perfectly comfortable, although on the small side. There was a laundry nearby, supermarkets down the road and it was in a fairly quietish but easy to reach part of Vienna. By purchasing a card for the computer room I had internet access which was essential for finding a flat.
Cheap accommodation - ideal rather than spending a fortune on accommodation in Pensionen and/or hotels.

Goshas Hostel ( I think): Very relaxed
I'm not sure if this place is still there so please bear with me.
In 1994 myself, Andy and Funky stayed here for 5 days. It was owned and run by a lovely lady called Gosha. It's a small hostel with room for 10 guests - so just one dorm. The best part was, the three of us shared with 7 girls. I was so happy to be a bloke!! Especially when a French girl who had slept late, didn't know I was in the other room and walked fully prepared for a shower...!!! Hmmm. Made my day.
Anyway....I hope it's still there. Next time I go to Vienna I'll try to find out and post it back here. It was a basic but nice place.
It's very central and only 15mins walk from Sud Banhoff (South Train Station). The only way I remember getting there was that the number 13 bus from Sud Banhoff stopped 2 mins walk from it. I'm sorry that I can't be more precise than that.
