Stayed here for a conference at the Messe Congress center. The hotel was spacious, spotless and elegantly furnished. My room was large with one of the most comfortable beds I have been in for years. The bathroom, with bath, was clean - but did have a rather low ceiling which meant that the fixed shower head didn't quite spray onto...

The setup is quite elegant. Receptionists are nice and the doorman(?), Floben, was so helpful in giving us directions and where to take our metro rides. We were also given our own coffeemaker in our room and a pair of slippers. You can request it, although they have coffee in the lobby every morning. Only drawback is it is not...

Beautiful interior, nice rooms with all the usual corporate hotel amenities. Great breakfast buffet with large variety. This hotel had the most comfortable mattresses I have ever slept on. Just around the corner from the hotel is a subway stop which makes it easy to get around. There is a beautiful Russian Orthodox church a few steps from the hotel....

As some have said in their reviews, this is a hotel that lacks any kind of personality, charm, warmth. It is a tour-bus and conference-attendees focused building. The building has no view on anything. It is not in the center of the city but has plenty of public transportation options within 1-2 min walk. A major plus is that you...

This was a large hotel catering primarily to business travelers. Nothing was included--not breakfast or parking or wi-fi. And the service was always good, although it felt corporate and sitance. But the price was good for a last minute booking and it wasn't too far from city center, especially if you took the tram. There are a lot of stores...

We stayed in the winter of 2008. I used Marriott points, otherwise I would have tried to stay closer to the city center. The location wasn't bad - it was a two block walk to the Metro and then three short stops downtown. You can even take the Metro straight to the airport from here (you might have to switch...

This is a beautiful hotel and its in a great location. We got a great rate of 79 euro a night and considering that you cant buy a tea towel in Vienna for less than 10 euro this was an exceptional rate.Our room was lovely with the best bed and a lovely view of the Russian mosque. It was very...

While not "down town", its about a 20 minute walk away from the main tourist areas, or mins to a tram that will take you there. Rooms are well appointed, common areas are elegant. It's a Renaissance, so if you want "quaint and cosy" look elsewhere. If you have lounge access (you can pay to get in if not) the...

My stay at the Riding School was very enjoyable! The room was very big and elegant. Washrooms were OK but could be "upgraded" to 2009 standard! Club floor was very nice and service was unbeatable.
