Hotel at the Vienna city center

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 3, 2011

My category as budget hotel, the location at Mariahilferstrasse is good at the center of Vienna. No lift for guests to take luggages to rooms at upper floors. Receptionist is at the first floor where entrance is at ground floor. Rooms are clean whether single or for double occupancy, non-smoking rooms, very small compare to average hotel rooms. No internet connection -at least when I stay there- but some internet cafe are nearby, as well as convenient stores and supermarkets. Staff is prompt although do not talk so much. Not very helpful when you need some detail information. Metro station is 2 min. walks; very easy if you want to go to the airport (connecting with airport train) or to main train station.

Unique Quality: Right at the city center, so the area provides almost anything you need when travelling. No frills just basic function. Option to have shower room ensuite. Quite noisy during the night until about 9 pm, Mariahilferstrasse is very crowded with people.

Directions: Metro Orange line (U3), station: Zieglergasse. Walk 2 min to Andreasgasse.

Very decent budget accommodation

Pension "Hargita" is located close to Mariahilfer Strasse - main shopping street in Vienna. We arrived from Prague to the south train station where we hopped on a bus going north. In around 15 minutes we were a couple of blocks away from the pension. We must thank the chatty old lady on the bus that helped us - otherwise it would be very difficult to figure out where to get off.

Overall, we were quite happy with "Hargita". Our room had 2 beds, was spotless and had a tiny shower cabin. Bathroom was shared among maybe 8 rooms - there were 2 on our floor.

They serve breakfast for extra 5 euros (not included in room price of E60) which was ok quality but not a memorable experience. Area around the pension offers plenty of alternative eating choices though.

Unique Quality: Hungarian family we dealt with on a daily basis was extremely friendly and helpful. Closest subway stop was 2 minutes walk away. Being close to Mariahilfer strasse was another quality as here we could find all kinds of shops, restaurants, and other points of interest for a casual tourist. Old town is some 45 minutes of light walk away, and this walk is interesting as we could take different routes, explore a city a little, and see some of Viennese historical buildings and monuments.

Directions: Just off Mariahilfer Strasse.

I stayed with my wife one night there, December 28th of 1996.
When we arrived in Wien at 6:30 AM with -15º Celsius degrees, we couldn't find any room. A man said to us later that in Sylvester times the city's hotels are full and their owners don't want to book for only one night. But the kindly woman of Pension Hargita let us to spend the night there.

Endless thanks!!!

Unique Quality: Location: Excellent to visit Downtown (Ring), close to train station (Wien Westbahnhof )
Rooms: 10, with diffferents services each one
For teenagers: It's above a Sex-Shop....
Heating: OK!!! We enjoyed it.
Air conditioning; ?? (it was winter...)
Breakfast: OK
Languages: English correctly spoken

PEOPLE: LOVELY

Great Vienna accommodation for those on a budget

I stayed two nights in June 2004. The pension is very clean and the staff was friendly. Room was very simple with a shared toilet for 3 or 4 rooms. Sink and shower were very clean and inside the room. No air conditioning, but for the price, I didn't mind. Beautiful hardwood floors and decorations add a nice touch to otherwise drab-looking rooms.

Location was great, just a few steps from a train stop, through a dark hallway, and up a circular staircase. It's only 1 stop from the main train station and 3 or 4 (5 minutes) from Stephensdom and the Hapsburg. The area is lined with shops, restaurants, and bars and is in quite a happening neighborhood, though a little noisy at night. Keys are provided and there's no lockout or curfew, which is nice if you like to stay out late or sneak out early.

Breakfast was provided and was a great combination of breads, cheese, meat, and coffee. You can also prepare your own meals in their kitchen.

Bring your own towels!!! The ones provided were the roughest, toughest things I've ever seen - worse than sandpaper! I had red marks where the towel took off a layer or two of skin (no kidding!). The toilet paper wasn't much better. These were my only complaints about a great stay for budget travellers.

Unique Quality: Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms, great price!

Directions: Right off Mariahilfer. From the 'Westbahnhof' take the 'U3' one stop up to 'Zieglergasse'.
Exit 'Otto-Bauer-Gasse /Andreasgasse' and when you exit the station, turn around and you'll see the sign for the pension.

It was so hard to find a hotel in Vienna at the time we went there, everyhtingw as fully booked, so after we spent 2 nights in the sofitel, we couldnt stay there the next 2 nights cause tehy had no place, so We spent two nights at pension hargita in vienna and it was so great, the family who runs the place is very warm and nice, and its totally well comunicate, its very clean, and the beds are very confortable.

Directions: Zieglergasse metro station its just one block from the pension.

Excellent Pension

At 52 Euros for a double (including breakfast), Pension Hargita is a good bargain. It is centrally located on Mariahilferstrasse and is only a 10-15 minute walk to Stephansplatz and the rest of the city center. You can go anywhere in Vienna from a nearby subway station (only a block away).

Unique Quality: The property has nice views of the vibrant Mariahilferstrasse (at Andreasgasse). Our room had an ensuite bathroom and a small TV. Photo credit: Pension Hargita website.

Directions: Mariahilferstrasse (U3 Zieglergasse subway station).
