Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by jd coach Had a great experience at this hotel
this is a great facility compaired to the Holdiay Inn in Hamburg Germany, I wish their staff was as well trained as this facility. Didn't want to pay the prices that are charged in the ring. It was not difficult to get to St. Stephens. Take the Green Underground 1 station and transfer to the Red for 1 station and your there. Found places to eat by the outdoor farmers market. Had a great experience from Ms Asti, a young desk clerk, who was helpful, polite and gracious. And she spoke English very well.
I'm Asian/American found ethnic resturants close by that had good food. Dinner at the farmers market was wonderful. We tried local favorites there. Mini Mkt down the block as well as self serve laundry. Next door to mini market was another market where I could get spare watch batteries as well as other items for travel. The underground was 2 1/2 blocks, maybe an eight minute walk. train/bus tickets were sold at the front desk of the hotel. the hotel had a great map that had the bus routes on it as well as the underground lines.
Only major complaints was that I couldn't log on to the internet with my Nook tablet and you had to go to the bar to get ICE which was given in a large paper cup. A bucket of ICE would have been nicer. When I go back to Wein, I'm staying at this hotel.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by John Traveler Decent hotel, difficult parking
The hotel appears to have been renovated recently. I'd stayed here a few years ago. The renovation was a welcome change. The rooms are still fairly small but the renovation made efficient use of the space. Nothing to complain about nor does anything really stand out. One change for the worse is they removed the large city map in the lobby. I could plan out my day's travels easily on it.
The restaurant is spread between a comfortable outside garden patio, the bar area, and a sunken area. The walls between the areas keep the noise levels down. The food is good but a bit expensive for the small portions. Within a block of the hotel, you can find a few good restaurants.
The front desk service was excellent. In particular Frau Czizmadia greeted me warmly and helped me with a local travel tips.
Parking is a problem. The hotel has 2 tiny garages. Maneuvering into and out of the spaces is quite difficult.
Another problem is the location. It's a three to five block walk to the nearest tram and bus stops going toward the city center. Add another eight or so blocks to get to Karlsplatz (train station and church). On rainy days, it's not pleasant.

Rated 3,0 out of 5,0 by Shan29 Good value for money, but service can be better
Being a platinum IHG member, I was upgraded to a garden facing deluxe room, which is appreciable. The check-in staff was very helpful with a warm smile. The location is not exactly city centre but is easily accessible by subway which takes you to city centre in 10 minutes approx. The rate is quite good compared to the over-rated expensive hotels in the city centre. However I was disappointed with the lady staff who was on duty on 28th July morning- being a platinum member I am eligible for a late check out of 2 pm. I requested for an extension of 3 pm - to which she was quite rude in rejecting. Being a Saturday morning the hotel was not at full occupancy and when I made the same request to another front desk staff- 3pm was readily acceptable. However, this first lady kept on calling me from 2:30 pm and I vacated the room at 2:45 pm. I don't know what she achieved by driving me away 15 minutes before my preferred time f 3pm--except making me feel very negative about their service.
