Convenient location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 12, 2005

The best thing about the Quisisana is it's location. It's on a quiet street and a 5 minute walk from the Museum Quarter and the inner ring. It's about 3 minute walk from the subway station - which is two stops away from the Westbanhoff train station where the you can catch the airport bus. The staff are friendly and the rooms clean - however, they are a little rundown and somewhat small. But, since there's so much to see in Vienna, you probably won't be in the room much anyway! The breakfast was ok - cereal, breads, cheese.

You might consider taking a cab to the Westbahnhoff rather than the subway - it's 5 Euro. A cab to the airport is 30 Euro and there's a cabstand around the corner from the hotel.

Considering the location, this is a very good value for the $$.

Kip - don't go there

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)

Most ridiculous hotel I've ever been to - I couldn't believe my eyes! The decor and furniture (advertised as antique) was a collection of old used crappy armchairs, beds and shelves from 50-ties and 60-ties - something you would never consider sleeping in. Most likely it has been collected from a skip.One of the armchairs has springs coming out of it from underneath, carpets were disgusting to say the least and the sink was coming off the wall. There was only one bedside lamp - old desk lamp and even the door to the room was recycled. The wallpaper was yellow on the edges and peeling off. The only saving grace was nice breakfast and a location.

Worst bed I slept in, in Austria

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 4, 2004

Vienna was my last stop in Austria, and as I started from Salzburg and worked my way across the country to Vienna, the standards of the rooms also gradually declined. Rooms and beds I slept in for Salzburg, Hallstatt etc were fantastic and I expected nothing else when I booked into the Quisisana in Vienna.

The location is great. Across the street from the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, etc. And the breakfast was also pretty decent. I also liked the retro deco of the little cafe downstairs. The price is reasonable too.

However, the room left much to be desired. The room was long and narrow, I keep having the feeling that my room used to be a portion of a bigger room that was renovated to accomodate more people and to earn more dough. The sink is at a built-in corner of the room. I had to endure nights on a bed with a mattress that had seen better days. The mattress was thin, and the springs of the bed were so worn out, that the bed sink in the middle. And yes, I could feel the coils sticking into my back every night. Imagine sleeping like that for 4 whole nights.

The bathroom was an uncomfortable experience. You have a little stool to put your clothes. But the shower itself has no curtains nor door, and the bathroom being so small that as you shower, the water goes everywhere including getting your dry clothes, and the floor as well, extremely wet.

Sigh....not good.

Directions: Walk down Mariahilferstrasse. When you see a Starbucks, turn right into Windmuhlgasse. There is a huge internet cafe across from it.
