This excellent hotel is practically inside Vienna Airport. To get to it you simply walk out of the Departures Hall and go across a car parking area. It is really that convenient. The quick overview is that it offers: good rooms (on the right side of the building), restaurant, bar, quiet night’s sleep and even a train link to Vienna itself. All at the airport. In terms of my stay, I walked into the large reception area and was greeted warmly. I was given a run-down room on the left hand side of the building in a smoking room. After returning to reception I was given a non-smoking room on the right hand side of the building. These rooms are modern, beautiful and several times better than the smoking rooms. If you smoke I would recommend you smoke outside to take advantage of the better rooms.
My room was just warm and inviting. My large bed felt comfortable. Check! I had a desk, coffee/tea making facilities and a reasonable TV. There was also a sort of neat living room chair that had a small folding desk attached as well. My nice closet held plenty of hanging space, mini-bar, safe, place to put a suitcase, drawers, even some nice wine glasses. My room also had mirrors, several lamps and a telephone. The bathroom was awesome. It had mirrors, including a shaving mirror, nice bath, good shower, great towels and some very good toiletries. I really liked my bathroom. There was even another telephone in there.
The best part was a good night’s sleep. With a very comfortable bed, fully climate controlled room and sound-proofed windows – I never heard the airport. Fantastic.
In the very bottom of the hotel is a modern gym, sauna and steam bath. Entering the massive lobby/open bar area you find – well – the bar! Lively at night and opens first thing in the morning (9am). Nothing like a beer for breakfast before a VT Euro Meeting! They also have a nice looking restaurant called "Mundo" serving an upscale and international menu.
I stayed here one night because I we flying to Macedonia for a fantastic VT Euro Meeting. When I realised the only flights I could book left me in Vienna overnight I wanted something convenient, comfortable and quiet. It was. And the other great thing was when I returned, they were willing to hold onto my suitcase during a long layover. I was able to walk to the train (100 meters) and go into Vienna for a few hours of sightseeing. I just asked when I stayed and confirmed the day I was coming back to the airport. I tipped them a small amount for letting me do this. Great service.

Great loacation in central Vienna easy to get to from airport.Train station which was very close by.
In the neat little town of Gmünd, Goldener Stern tries to be the luxury place to stay. It is accordingly expensive, which didn't come as a surprise. The room was large and pleasant. The bathroom (washing basin and shower) was separated from the room only by a transparent glass panel, something I disliked. Fortunately the toilet offered more privacy.
The service was nice (they picked us from the railway station, which is like a mile away).
However there is a certain arrogance arround the reception area if you happen to have a back pack and/or not to look rich. When we left it was pouring rain and still they invited us to wait in front of the hotel for the taxi!
Also I would make the reservation in written. I did it by phone. They charged a higher rate than they had said on the phone.
A nice camping place just out of Innsbruck, by the woods, directly next to the campsite you will find a large playground which provides enough room for children of all ages to play.
There is also a great Pizzeria "Kranebitterhof" with a large sun-terrace.
On every site there is a hook up for water and waste water as well as for energy available.There is a small shop. Bread is delivered freshly every day by a baker.
Bathrooms and showers are new and very clean. Also a very big, nice kitchen with electric cooker a nd lounge with a sunny terrace.
Hospiz Hotel in St. Christoph am Arlberg is a 5star-luxury-hotel on top of the pass-road over the Arlberg. In the older times, when merchants were taking their goods over the pass-road by oxen or horses this "hopsiz" was a place to relax, spend the night, find shelter in nasty weather ect. Step by step and with mass tourism it was transfered into a luxury hotel, that saw celebrities like royal families from Great Britain, Netherlands etc.
When booking a hotel at the Arlberg : Be aware that ever year it might happen that the road is totally closed for several days and even helicopters will have no chance at all to fly you in or out !!
For celebrities this does not matter, for the "working-class" it might be a desaster, when you have to be back on the job in time !!!

The Hilton Hotel in Innsbruck is the same building, where I was working in 1979 at the reception, but back then it was a Holiday Inn and today it belongs to the Hilton-hotels.
The building is quite high, and it was one of the first such buildings in Austria, that had 2 completely seperated towers outside of the building, ment to be used to run down the stairs in case of a fire or other emergency.
Next to the Hilton you will find a modern Casino - you can see it on my picture !
Celebrities who stayed in that hotel, while I was working there :
"Smokie" - including a bunch of teenies running after them -
Milva - Sir Peter Ustinov...
Our stay at the Graben hotel was a mixed bag to be honest. The hotel is a small hotel/restaurant set very central to all historical and shopping districts. It is an historical hotel, so therefore is of old quaint stylings, so if you are looking for a sheraton/hilton style chain hotel - this is not the place for you!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were comfortable. Unfortunately on the first night we stayed there was a banging noise coming from the plumbing in the bathroom and after night two, we requested to be moved. We were moved to an upper floor room at the opposite side of the building which was bright and airy and again very comfortable.
However, at 7am in the morning, the house dorectly next door which was having building works done, were dropping bits of debris through metal chutes to five floors down so the noise was incredible and we had to request another room. Our final room was smaller but again clean and comfortable and thankfully - noise free!
Breakfast was a selection of cold meats, breads, jams and cheeses. There was a good selection and again te staff were very helpful and friendly.
The best part of this hotel was its location. It was centrally located near all districts of historical interest and just off the main shopping district. There was also an underground two minutes walk away.
Hi, I went to Vienna last May and I stayed 3 nights in this hotel: Hotel Capricorno Wien Schwedenplatz 3-4, 1010 Wien, Austria +43 1 53331040 ()
am a woman who travel alone, and the hotel was perfect for me. Very central good location. Very good breakfast, clean, satelital TV, good beds and friendly people. I really recommend them. Good luck!! Diana
Hotel Ekazent is very well located,very near Schonbrunn palace,few blocks from subway.We stayed in a family room and the bedroom was very nice,spacious and very clean.
The breakfast was very good located in a nice room with a beautiful view.The staf of the hotel were very gentle.
Hotel Holiday Inn City Vienna is an excellent four star city hotel located just within a stone's throw from major tourist attractions. The hotel has approximatelöy 100 well-furnished rooms and was constructed in 1976.
Among its well-equipped amenities and facilities are non smoking rooms, air-conditioning, 24 hour front desk, laundry services, conference and meeting rooms, business services, health and fitness centre with sauna, foreign currency exchange, pets allowed, wheelchair accessible, high speed internet access, complementary coffee/tea maker, safe deposit boxes, mini bar, hair dryer, laundry services and dry cleaning.
Buffet breakfast between 7.00 a.m. and 11.00 a.m. daily at hotel's main restaurant is excellent, priority is given to quality instead of quantity it has to be said. Services are impeccable as staff are friendly and helpful.
Its unique qualities are its central location being near to major tourist attractions, business centres and shopping arcades. Subway station Kettenbrückengasse for line U4 (green line) is located just 200 metres away. Lots of shops, bars and restaurants are located around the hotel. Another unique quality is the choice of several different pillows to choose from to make your night sleep a memorable one!
Located on a quiet street just a short walk from Vienna's botanical gardens & the Belvedere Museum (home to Klimt's "The Kiss"), this nice pension is a perfect base for exploring the city. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the smaller room, where I stayed, had a toilet just across the hall. There was a couch, tv, and nice view of the neighborhood from my window. Breakfast is served in a large dining room every morning and the food was very good. There are also laundry facilities available.
The tub/shower is located a ways from most of the rooms but that's the only problem and for the great room at a reasonable price, it's a small complaint.
They only take cash.
Close to several tourist sites and the subway without feeling like you are right downtown and yet you're not so far out of the city center that it takes a long time to get where you want to go.
Would really recommend this hostel but it is open only in the summer. It's located about 10 mins walk along the river to downtown. Along the river, there were stalls with different stuff. It is also about 15 mins walk from the train station.
It was very clean the the staff were very helpful. The internet was also free. At the reception they can organise pick up for you if you want to do one of the tours.
Breakfast wasn't included think it was about €2 or €2.50.
There was a great view out of the hostel as it was beside the river.
There was a church nearby and the bells rang early in the morning, I thought it was cool but some people may not.
Located a few minutes walk from the Salzburg rail station. This hotel is in the Mariott chain and offers american style accomadation. The hotel is located 15 minutes from the Old Town, but for the price they offer a 15 minute walk is not so bad.
Pool, exercise room.
Unfortuately they charge for internet use in their 'business' center, located off the lobby. Nice restaurant serving a buffet breakfast. For evening the bar offers standard 'american style' food. Try the club sandwich, it is really good.
An excellent choice for a 4 star hotel, located a few minutes walk from the major museums. K+K have two hotels in Vienna and a excellent restaurant in Salzburg. For the price you will be hard to fine a better choice in such a great location. It is located right behind the museum center, just off Burggasse.
Nice bar located in the lobby, serving light lunches and dinner. They have a internet center, located off the lobby, with four computer, a printer for you to use. Unlike other hotels they do not extra charge for the use of the internet.
We stayed here half pension and enjoyed it very much. We needed a room for five, as we have three young children and they arranged for us to have a small apartment on the top floor. The room had fresh wooden floors and comprised of an entrance room with a little kitchenette, two sleeping rooms - the smaller one with two single beds and a desk, and the larger room with a double bed and a bed sofa, that was made up for our youngest, there was also a table and chairs in this room. The bathroom was connected to the larger room and had a shower.
The downside with the room for us is that the skylights did not have any form of blinds or curtain so it did shorten sleep somewhat for our children, but by the end of our holiday the children had got used to lighter rooms.
We were late to the pension due to horrendous rain, and despite the fact that the kitchen was about to close we were warmly received although hurried along. This was no problem for us as we were all very hungry.
we had a choice of liver dumpling or noodle soup for starters and then for main course it was pork with pasta and sauce or stuffed paprika, and cheesecake to finish off with. The soup and the dessert were good. The main course was average, but tasty, but there again it was very beige - pasta, pork and creamy sauce!!
We slept well. The room was quiet and of a high standard.
Breakfast was great - and for my children one of the highlights of the holiday (as we self catered the rest of the holiday) our table was decked out with cups, saucers and orange juice. There were baskets filled with little packages of nutella, patés, soft cheeses and jams. A plate of hams, sausage and cheese came out aswell as a basket of breadrolls (semmel) and slices of brown bread. The children got to drink creamy hot chocolate and we parents drank delicious coffee (REALLY good coffee). A good start to the day.
A small place with big ideas. They want an organic basis and try to provide local food. The room was big, clean and had beautiful wooden floors. It has a simple elegance without the fuss of it being a luxury hotel. You feel indulged at the same time as you feel at home.
