Hotel City Central is in an excellent position for using Big Bus, walking to City Centre or strolling to the Carmelite Market. The staff is very welcoming and the hotel is clean. The breakfast has all you can desire. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It was a pleasure being there.

This hotel had a great location for the intent and purpose of our trip. The selection of food for the breakfast was fantastic and the hours for breakfast quite accommodating. The rooms aren't modern, but we didn't expect that knowing that this is the oldest hotel in Vienna. Greta service and polite staff - couldn't fault the place

Lovely hotel with polite helpful staff and comfy beds, a bit old fashioned if you're being picky but all Vienna hotels for this budget seem to be. 2 minutes from the underground and 10-15 minutes from the city centre so a great location. Breakfast is incredible! Don't miss it! There is a printer you can use if its to early...

The mentioning that they serve the best breakfast in town made me do this choice. Wholy true, we experienced, without knowing the other hotels/breakfasts. The kindly people in the restaurant were the proof.

Conveniently located just the other side of the Danube Canal and about 4 minutes walk to metro line/trams at Schwedenplatz which will pretty much get you anywhere you want to go in the city. 10-15 minutes walk gets you to St Stephen's Cathedral in the centre. Overall, we found this to be a great location for our sight-seeing stay. Rooms...

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. A comfy lobby bar assures guests’ further well-being; covered parking spaces are also available. ... more   less
