NH Danube City: Reasonable location, good value
The NH Danube City Hotel on Wagramer Strasse is a high-rise business class hotel on the northern edge of Vienna. It is adjacent to the Vienna International Center (VIC), the site of large United Nations office buildings.
For tourists it is reasonably convenient because it is a 5 minute walk to the VIC subway station and then a 12 minute subway ride on line 1 to the city center. In addition, the VIE airport bus stops directly in front of the hotel on an hourly basis (40 minute ride, 6 euros).
The neighborhood is pleasant but not interesting, with few restaurants or other attractions, although there are nearby greenbelts for joggers. Views from the upper floors are attractive, especially on the street (east) side.
The rooms are comfortable in size (about 250 sq. ft.) and are decorated in blue and gold, with post-modern gray and blond furniture. Our standard double had one queen size bed with two twin size duvets.
There is a large desk with an internet connection (not sure about wi-fi or prices), a small LCD-TV with a bathroom speaker, an ironing board (iron available at the desk), a mini-bar with enough room for personal items, a tea pot (coffee available in the lobby), and a room safe. There were no robes or slippers in our room (bring your own). The windows open, but Wagramer Strasse is busy. The A/C climate control works well, and the room was quiet with the windows closed.
The bathroom is granite and tile, and is functional in size. There is a single sink and a tub-shower combo. There are three room phones (desk, bedside, and bathroom).
Short term internet use is available free in the lobby (ask the desk for a password). The staff is friendly and helpful.
The staff offered an upgrade to an executive room for a fee, which we declined. We booked our room by bidding for the northeast zone on priceline.com. Our pre-paid rate was $96 per night plus $10 in taxes and fees, a bargain for a European hotel of this high quality since we were there during a local holiday.
The breakfast buffet was not included in our room rate, and was 19 euros ($27) additional. We simply made tea and had a continental breakfast in our room. We did not sample the hotel restaurants.
The surrounding area had no apparent supermarkets or other shops, so we simply picked up a bottle of champagne and some snacks before leaving the city center each evening. There is a Bila supermarket on Singer Strasse near the Stephansdom, and there is (reportedly, we did not use it) a supermarket near the Praterstern subway station on the way to the hotel. There may be additional options near the hotel, but we did not ask.
All in all, the NH Danube City hotel is ideal for those travelers with business at the VIC, and is reasonably convenient for tourists who are interested in the inner city (Innere Stadt) but do not want to pay the price for a hotel on the ring. We would happily stay there again.
Directions: Near Vienna International Center subway station. On VIE airport bus route (to VIC).
business traveller lodge
Over about 3 years I was a frequent business traveller to Vienna as my work base for projects in Eastern Europe.
Unique Quality: Very friendly and quite place with reasonable prices for business travellers. Check for corporate rates with your company.
Taxi's taking you anywhere in Vienna or to the airport available at the desk's taxi service.
Great staff and very good service. Was in many "priority club hotels" but this is one of my absolute favourites.
Just on the "Alte Donau" the old arm of the river with great leisure parks and city hiking. Not far from the Donau river with lots of fun in the various food stalls serving food and drinks from all over the world.
Directions: At Wagramer Strasse 21 on the border of 22nd and 21st district (called Bezirk in Vienna)
now called NH Danube City Hotel
The NH Danube City Hotel (previously Crowne Plaza Vienna) is located next to the Vienna International Centre (VIC/United Nations), 5 minutes walk to the Austria Centre Vienna (ACV) Vienna's convention centre, and around 20 minutes drive away from Vienna International Airport.
Due to its convenient location, this hotel is popular with business visitors to the United Nations offices in the VIC and participants of the many congresses held in the ACV.
Unique Quality: It has 252 guest rooms inclusive 3 suites that offer modern comfort, air conditioning/heating, satellite TV, mini bar, in-room safe, and hairdryer. For relaxation, the hotel has a fitness room, sauna and steam bath. Parking facilities are available within the underground garage.
Directions: Take the underground metro U1 to Kaisermuhler/Vienna International Centre. If driving, take A4 to Vienna, go to A23 & then A22 direction Prague, Exit Kagran/ Vienna International Center. 2km after the underpass, go right at exit Kagran.
The Crowne Plaza near the DonauZentrum is a nice hotel with great rooms. It is also just down the street from a u-bahn stop, so it is easy to get downtown. It is also walking distance from DonauZentrum shopping center and a couple good restaurants and clubs. It also has a decent bar in the lobby. The price varies dramatically based on conferences, so it goes from great deal to unaffordable.
