Overall a good hotel. Good staff and the breakfast wasn't to bad. I will recommend it to anyone who is wanting a good night. It is close to the city and stations and other restaurants and supermarkets.

The hotel is in a neighborhood I feel scared walking along after 7pm, and the whole setting is really out of dated so I think it's over charging.

Dear Zhozho, thank you very much for your feedback.We can not understand why you felt uncomfortable on the street. The Hotel Franzenshof is located in a quiete residential area. Vienna is a safe City and as woman there are no problems to walk around alone in the night in Vienna. Does something happen on the street during your stay? Best... More

Coming home from Germany, we decided on the run to spend a night in Vienna. Since Vienna is always a very crowdy place, some friends recommended that we stay here. It was not a bad choice. Friendly staff, they helped us with important information (like there is no parking fare on Saturdays and Sundays in the town), the room was... More

First the positives and the reason I have the hotel 3 stars instead of 2: the hotel is well located, the price is very hard to beat and the rooms are clean. Breakfast was standard and the wifi was generally acceptably fast. Sounds good, right? My first complaint: We stayed 5 nights at the hotel and were given the tiniest... More

The staff at this hotel were extremely helpful and kind. I stayed in a single bed room, which was well appointed. The showers and toilets were shares, however really really (unexpectedly) nice and clean. The room could have done with more plugs available by the bed for those of us who like to have our phones charge next to the... More

We stayed for two nights the breakfast for €8 was good. Wrapping a bread roll each for lunch was a bonus. The soup available at the bar was spicy but just what I needed after a tiring day.

Dear Margaret, thank your very much for your feedback. Unfortunately it seems that there was a misunderstanding. Of course you can pay the room and breakfast with credit card, we only prefer cash.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
