Fantastic location and great breakfast (so much to offer). Rooms are very old and outdated, but beds are comfy and that's the main thing. Every staff member we met was above and beyond helpful and genuinely lovely! Highly recommend to stay they. Inexpensive and close to transport.

While the weather during our weekend stay in Vienna was not ideal, our stay at the Schick Hotel City Central was. Our initial choice of the hotel was based on two things, the location and the breakfast. As to location, everything we wanted to see in our short stay was within walking distance of the hotel. Once we had our...

The staff at the City Central are all extremely friendly and helpful with tips, advice and restaurant bookings. In particular we would like to mention Marco who was always smiling and had good ideas. The rooms are of a good size and immaculately clean. The breakfast was good, with plenty to chose from. Our party ranging from ages 16 to...

There is no faster route to my heart than being kind to my child. The desk clerks here were unfailingly kind and generous with my daughter. They taught her German, gave her a stuffed bear, and sneaked her packets of gummi bears. The staff set up a bed for her in our room, which was adorable. We had a spacious...

I'll be honest, I normally stay in very large hotel rooms in the US. So I was horrified when I opened my door, with my 2 kg key, and found that I had a very small single bed in an equally small room. I actually had a look for another hotel that evening. The first morning, however, after sleeping relatively...

We stayed in this hotel and apartments whilst we explored Vienna. We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and the apartments for 3 nights both were clean and exactly what we needed.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The name already reveals much about the smart Hotel City Central’s advantages. The central location near the 1st District, the historic centre of Vienna, coupled with the employees’ typical Viennese charm and a perfect price-performance ratio, distinguish this hotel. Behind the stylish facade, guests find a perfect refuge for their stay in Vienna. 58 rooms and three individual apartments in a nearby building are all convincing thanks to modern comforts such as air conditioning, FLAT TV with Sky programs, and WLAN (free of charge). A special attraction is the Winter Garden with its pyramid-shaped glass roof where a rich and varied breakfast is served. Covered parking spaces are also available. ... more   less
