We're here in Vienna for 3 nights, an excellent choice. Close enough to the centre by foot (10-15 mins), friendly helpful staff, clean quadruple room (double + bunk for the children). It's somewhere between a hostel and hotel. Pretty well connected for transport, too. Good valye. Many thanks!

We were here for 8 nights. Usually we stay st Franz, but this time a friend of mine recommended Sissi. Actually we were not disappointed. I myself had a few tiny problems, but they were settled fast and in a friendly manner. The staff is friendly. I want to mention Yanis and Franchesco. But the other people were also helpful...

This hotel is a little out of the way, requiring a 20 minute walk to reach the city centre. This is however entirely made up by the excellent value for money. A modern hotel, with excellent rooms, and a well-priced breakfast. All rooms, as far as I could see, are family rooms and sleep at least four people (two singles,...

I personally think this is the most optimal hotel in Vienna. Located in a quite block only 15 min away from the center it has a very reasonable price for a night. Great advantage is the parking for only 18 a day. The hotel has 2 rooms for disabled located on the ground floor. They a very spacious and fully...

We stayed in a 6 bed dorm, which was pretty spacious. There are no self catering facilities, only a kettle and microwave. While we stayed there there was a large school group staying so not ideal to meet people! Location is good, right beside a U-bang station and an easy walk from main train station.

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.
