MEININGER Hotel Wien Downtown Franz
Ranked #125 of 361 Hotels in Vienna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 May 2017

Our group stayed at the MEININGER Hotel in Downtown Vienna to start our tour and it was the first of many good stays in this chain of European hotels. Friendlay staff, comfy beds and rooms (a bit on the small side but why would you stay in your room if you're in Vienna) and good breakfast and lunch packets that can be ordered for large groups. The eating area has all sorts of little memorabilia that will surely strike up interesting conversations with friends, family or other guests. Very close to historic downtown Vienna and all its attractions. If you are on a tight budget or organizing for a group trip to Vienna, I recommend looking into MEININGER Hotels in Vienna, the Franz being first.

Room Tip: Rooms can get warm as no air seems to come from opened window

The hotel is located in a nice neighbourhood and in a walking distance from the city center. Check-in and check-out was quick. Staff is nice. If you can take a room which is not by the elevator, because people are quite loudly during the night. In the shower there were some long blonde hair and the do not make the upper bed.

I stayed here for six nights and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and warm hospitality. It's was easy for me reach the place from airport as I took metro to Karlz Plaza station and from there another metro to hotel.It's a walkable distance from station and after crossing a bridge across Danube and walking through a beautiful park, I could reach the place though it was my first visit to Vienna. The young and ever smilng staff at reception made my stay very comfortable and memorable. They also guided me to visit important museums and sights marking on user friendly local map.Penny store is just two minutes walk from hotel and I could buy whatever I needed, obviously excellent local beer and accompaniments. Breakfast is extra and there is free wifi.There are also couple of cafes and pizza stalls just a few minutes walk in a parallel road. The majestic Danube is just few minutes walk and after crossing the bridge I could see few of important places and also catch the tram..I could also travel to Salzburg and Innsbruk day trips from Vienna , thanks to the guidance of the staff.All together it's a great place to stay and I not only recommend but also stay there once again during my next visit.

Dear guest, thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are glad that you enjoyed it. Regarding the parking: I guess you booked through booking.com. There you can make a request for parking, but it is just a request, which means that unless you don´t get a confirmation from the hotel you have no parking place booked. On the website it says: "Special requests cannot be guaranteed – but the property will do its best to meet your needs". We are sorry that you encountered difficulties in finding a parking place. Actually there are several parking options nearby, just can ask at reception anytime!
We hope to welcome you again in one of our MEININGER houses all over Europe!
Best wishes,
Sara

The hotel is located in a nice neighbourhood and in a walking distance from the city center.
The rooms and amenities are rather basic,but clean and cosy. The hotel is very vibrant, with a lot of place to hung out in the lobby. Excellent wifi, parking and breakfast available. It was very basic, but I would come again.

Ok some of the rooms are hostel style with bunks but boy was I impressed. Stayed here with 18 students and 11 parents. Place was modern and extremely clean. We were all happy.The common areas was filled with patrons of all age groups interacting during evening and morning agec. Can't beat the prices and close into city center. Breakfast had a good selection that stayed stocked. Neighbor is quiet with a few stores and nice little place called city bar nearby.
