The shower was old and dirty and not adjustable in hight, no normal grownup could stand straight under it... When we complained the guy at the desk was very rude... More

Is extremely central, you can walk to the state opera house in less than 10 mins. There are lots of fab restaurants nearby too. Not the usual hotel standard , bit quirky & individual but very clean. We would definitely stay again.

The hotel is a little bit old and the room had a double door system that I found slightly awkward. The room where I stayed was very minimal in terms of furnitures but clean. Breakfast was not exceptional for me and those people who were not eating salty in the early morning. Staff is young and gentle. One of them... More

Stayed as a couple in October, in different rooms on both the beginning and end of a trip which started and ended in Vienna. On the positive side, it is an excellent location, close to the performing halls and museum district. Good proximity to public transit, closest is only a block and a half away, giving you access to the... More

Don't be fooled as I was with the picture showing the hotel. This is not the hotel building, this building is one street away and about 500 mtrs away. Saying that the front office staff were very pleasant and helpful. I was designated a mezzanine room which turned out to be very dark that there was one main light, a... More

The location is just fine - about 10-minute walk from the Vienna Operahouse. But the hotel itself is not ok - you can read it in all other bad reviews, it is mostly true. Anyway for just sleeping there after a long day of traversing Vienna the hotel is ok

I've stayed at Papageno several times for business and private travel and can highly recommend it! The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautiful while conserving traditional style and the atmosphere is great - I often come around Christmas and at that time the lobby is decorated with a tree, you get free coffee, cake and sometimes...

We booked the 'classic double room' it had two single beds pushed together, no coffee/tea facilites, the safe was faulty &I had to 'look after' reception while the only member of staff sorted it out. Thee 'free coffee' in the reception area was cold and bitter and could only be drunk there not taken away. Telephone calls could only be... More
