City Hotel Albrecht: Excellent place close to the airport
We were arriving on a late flight, and flying out the following morning, so needed a place that was quite close to the airport -- and this hotel offered an excellent alternative and a pleasant stay. The location is only 3 stops from the Vienna airport, although there is a bit of walk, about 250 meters from the train station.
It is not a fancy place, but everything was comfortable, new, and very clean. The room we had was spacious, the beds comfortable, had a flatscreen TV with plenty of channels to choose from, and a minibar whose contents were not outrageously priced. The most memorable part of this stay was the breakfast which is simply outstanding, and hard to beat. I have stayed in hundreds of places, but this ranks as one of the best -- in terms of choices and of quality of food, of service. They will serve you, if you do not prefer the buffet, whatever you request in the way you want it done, e.g. cheese omelette or soft boiled eggs, or a sandwich, among others, without additional payment! The service staff were nice, efficient, and fast. The breakfast place itself is in a tastefully designed place, with plenty of light -- in short, breakfast here was just perfect!
The only downside was that the front desk staff did not speak English, and we had to call several times from our point of origin to find an english speaking staff to explain that we were arriving late. As check-in was only until 22:00, we were not sure how we could get inside. When we arrived though, we saw the key to our room posted on the hotel entrance, with our name on it. It seems this was their practice, as we also saw one addressed to another late coming guest. Another downside was that they could not give us precise directions to reach the hotel from the train station, so it was quite troublesome for us as we were lugging our luggages and late night at that, with nobody in the street to inquire from. It was quite confusing as well because near the station were relatively wide open space, and it was not so easy to located the street name and building number.
In any case, for those who decide to stay in this place, if taking the train from the airport, the way is to go left of the direction of the train (the other side where there is a gas station is already Vienna side, not Schwechat where the hotel is), and go for a bit over a couple of hundred meters crossing about 3 short blocks. If you see a kind of bar restaurant on a big corner lot, the hotel is already close, but keep to the main road.
In short, I would highly recommend this hotel for a quick, convenient, and nice stay.
the BREAKFAST! if only for the breakfast, this hotel is worth staying at. the raves were indeed true!

We enjoyed our stay in Vienna, this such lovely city, especially with this great apartment in the center of Vienna - it was very clean and we are a little bit like at home in this apartment. All was fine and we`ll come for sure back.

Hotel Altstadt Vienna: Boutique hotel in Vienna's oldest district
Art – combined with old fashioned charm and uniqueness! A carefully renovated patrician house from the 19th century accommodates the 4-star hotel, which is located in one of Vienna’s oldest districts, the Spittelberg. It offers both, a historic ambiance and a close location to the city.
Charming hotel in a very unique location - yet within walking distance of the Museumsquartier.

SleepingInVienna.com: Fair option, pay same price up to 4 people
My husband, son and I just visited Vienna for a three day trip. We found this apartment to rent on VRBO.com Website. The apartment has just been remodeled, and we found it to be a good value for our money. There is a tram stop right in front of the apartment that brings you directly into the first district (Schottentor). Only minutes walking, there was a market - I think it was called the Brunnen market or so. One feature that we also really liked was the free wifi internet. If we come back to visit, we will def. stay there again.
fits 4, pay same price

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 view wasn`t so good because of works to a new metro line,but the noise didn`t disturb .
There was a parking place available for 3.7 euro/day.
The owner was cool, very friendly and good english speaker.
