This is a very nice hotel, located just across the Danube canal from the main part of the city. Our group of 17 travelers were all pleased with the hotel and amenities. The furnishings in the rooms are more Victorian than modern but comfortable and well-maintained. The hotel breakfast room is very attractive - like eating at the Ritz according... More

After staying in some higher priced hotels in Munich and Salzburg, I was worried about what to expect from this hotel considering the low price. I did not need to worry. We had room 207 facing the inside of the hotel, no view but we did not care. Room was a little small but not unmanageable by any means. Everything... More

I stayed at the Hotel City Central in Vienna in late May 2013. I selected this hotel after lots of research on Tripadvisor. I chose this hotel because of location, price, and its ability to handle car parking. The hotel location is great, just a block walk down to a bridge which takes you into the city center. As others... More

The location of the hotel was great. Although in a very quiet area, it was just 1 min away from the river and 5 min walking away from the city center.

I have been staying in Hotel City central on several occasions. It is situated on Taborstrasse, near the Danube Canal, just outside the city center. The atmosphere is pleasantly Viennese, friendly and a little old fashioned. But in the good meaning of the word. The rooms vary in size from spacious to relatively small. All have an ancient 'inn' flavour.... More

Very nice hotel, great location, just minutes walk from the city center, attractions and underground station. The street the hotel is on is also very nice. We had a lovely room with a balcony. The food at the breakfast was excellent as well and staff is very attentive and helpful. Would definitely go there again.

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
