Nice and clean hotel for families as well as singles. Pros: The reservation process was flawless and efficient. We had to cancel one night just before arrival and the communication was excellent. The room was relatively small for a family of four, but the price was OK and it was clean and tidy. Buffet breakfast was nice even though some...

Basic room with all the essentials. t's located in a quiet residential area, a short walk away from the city (an even shorter walk to the metro station). The price was a huge advantage, very affordable, however breakfast was not included in the initial price. For those who do want to eat at the hotel there is a nice continental...

The Meininger Hotel is a very nice step up from a hostel, but with a hostel's reasonable prices. (It's particularly good for groups of 2 and more, since you often pay per person at hostels.) It's tidy, clean, and spacious. My boyfriend and I found the beds quite comfortable and the location convenient for access to the purple and green...

We spent three nights at the Meininger Wien Downtown Sissi. It is located in a great neighborhood with several nice restaurants within short distance. It is also located about 3 blocks from the subway. When we checked in, we were given a 1st floor (2nd floor actually) room facing the street. Vienna was experiencing record heat wave and the hotel...

We stayed with our two pre-teen aged children and this hotel was perfect for our family vacation. The rooms sleep four comfortably (not so easy to find in Europe), the kitchen and dining room are open to guests 24/7 (very convenient when traveling with fussy eaters), the room was very clean and well appointed, and the location was ideal. It...

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.
