This hotel is in a wonderful location with an easy walk to the Center of Vienna and a block distance from the underground rail system. The breakfast is spectacular with outstanding service. The desk staff were cheerful and always helpful answering each and every question. The down side is the thin walls so if your neighbors decide to chat the...

It was our second stay in this hotel. It has a good central position in town (just across the bridge from Schwedenplatz, at short walking distance from St. Stephen’s Cathedral). The hotel is set in a nice Art Deco building and offers all modern comfort in a traditional style atmosphere (some refresh in the decoration of the rooms – with...

I spend a lot of time reading Tripadvisor reviews before booking any hotel, and I chose the City Central based on the mainly positive reviews, plus the price and location. We were not disappointed. Sure, the hotel is not state of the art modern luxury, but it provides you with everything you will need for a stay in Vienna, and...

I recently spent five nights there and was very pleased. The staff is very friendly, helpful and informed. The tram and UBahn are only five minutes away and there is a grocery store next door.

Really enjoyed the hotel, staff and breakfast. The only drawback was that a few guests were a bit noisy. Excellent location and great dining and sightseeing recommendations provided by the staff. Great place.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel in September 2013. We arrived late one rainy evening by the CAT train from the airport and took a cab to the hotel. It was just a 5 euro ride.

Great location, great service and staff, great breakfast buffet, great room. Only 5 minute walk to Old City Centre and free wi-fi in the room, as well as mini-bar and air-conditioning. It's only a 10 minute walk to the oldest restaurant in Vienna, where you can find authentic Austrian food.

I've been to Vienna for IAEA meetings many times and would stay in different hotels (or friends' apartments).

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
