“Nice But Out of the Way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

Overall the hotel is very nice. The staff was very professional, and the restaurant was quite good. The rooms were contemporary and large. They were happy to hold my luggage when I checked out at 8:30 and didn't return for pickup until 6pm. My major issue was the distance to the city center. While it was only a short ride on the U-bahn, it was a little too far out of the way for me. If you are going to city center take the U2. You will have to change to another line at Praterstein if you want to go to the castle. The bahn is easy to use and quite safe, but there isn't much happening I this area day or night. The hotel was nice enough to stay in again, but I would take my chances down town for the same price per night.

My mom and I visited the Christmas markets in Vienna and stayed at Hilton Danube. What a wonderful hotel. Excellent breakfasts taken in room looking out to the Danube River. Staff in breakfast room and at reception desk were friendly and very helpful. All were able to speak English and made our stay an absolute pleasure.

Room Tip: the river view suites are fantastic-beautiful views and very peaceful

The rooms on the 7th floor are great and when facing the Danube fan. The staff in the executive lounge are helpful and very friendly. Housekeeping staff were always friendly and nice. Connection to the city is super 5 minutes walk to the underground that comes every 5 minutes (not ones late) a bus to and from the air port directly in front of the hotel.

Starting a Christmas tour in Vienna, I was a little hesitant that we'd be too far from the city itself at the Hilton Danube (having previously stayed at the Hilton City Park) but was pleasantly surprised at its easy access. There's an hourly bus from the airport that stops at the Hotel and it's within a short walking distance of a metro station that takes you directly into the city centre (to Karlsplatz) The rooms look newly renovated and, besides being large and spacious, are nicely decorated- we were lucky enough to have a river facing room with a beautiful view of the Danube. Breakfasts were delicious, with a variety of choices. The dinners we had at the restuarant were attractively presented, with some mouth-watering combinations- I particularly loved their poppyseed icecream...yum! With attentive and friendly staff, it was a lovely stay at an elegant old hotel.

Stayed 3 nights in March 2011. First off, big building, large reception area, great view of the Danube, impressive! At the time of my stay there, the Hilton was going through rennovations, half the rooms had already been refurnished and redecorated. My appointed room was not. Still, the room itself is HUGE, two double beds, desk, sofas and a large bathroom. The restaurant on the main floor is enjoyable as there is a well garnished buffet for breakfast and a nice menu for the rest of the day. The Hilton is near a big mall and within a reasonable walking distance of parks and other monuments, still a little far on foot from the city's center. Great value!

Dear “c3zar3”,

Thank you for your feedback following your stay in March, during that time, the hotel was undergoing a complete renovation. Fortunately the renovation works are completed and the hotel has opened up all rooms and public areas in new splendour.

We would be delighted to welcome you back to the renovated Hilton Vienna Danube in the future.

A very good Hotel, spacious rooms, great service. Nice breakfast, more egg choices would be nice. Expensive Internet charges.

Room Tip: Request River view. However, this may increase the price...

Aside from the Hilton Vienna Danube being a bit out of the way if travelling by public transport the hotel was consistent with the Hilton's reputation of quality rooms. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated, the bed extremely comfortable and the bathroom and free toiletries were also very nice. Although the room was lacking bath robes.
The breakfast was excellent and the service equally so with a lovely view over the river. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
