I stayed at this hotel when attending a conference at Messe Prater. My room was clean and the staff were friendly at the Wien Downtown Sissi. The hotel was well-located for access to the Metro. The free Wifi was excellent, and the room was reasonably priced. The rooms were described as soundproofed on booking.com but this is not the case...

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it! It was one of the cheapest options we found in Vienna and yet the only thing I could complain about was the lumpy pillows. The location is great. It's on a quiet road so we could happily sleep with the window open and yet it was only a ten minute...

We share a three bed room with an attached bathroom. The room was spacious. The bathroom was clean. The staff was friendly. The Hostel is located in a quiet street. The hostel is frequented mostly by college students. The pro of the room was that it had an air cooler which was a blessing since the temperature outside was 36...

I have been here for 2 nights with my family. Everything is perfect - clean and large room, friendly staff, free Internet. The position is good. Just 10 minutes to the closes metro station and just 15 minutes on foot to the Prater. And there is a good pub after the corner.

Good: Room and bathroom were clean, good breakfast. Bad: Reception personnel not very professional, at check-out they insisted we didn't pay breakfast, though we actually paid it entirely at check-in. We were able to prove payment with the receipt.. We could easily hear noisy groups from other rooms at night, as well noisy groups on the street, though during the...

Hello! Thank you very much for your honest feedback! We would like to apologize for the misunderstanding concerning the breakfast. It is of course not our goal to charge our guests double. We are very sorry that it seemed like we distrusted you. We will also enhance the security at night and control the noise level more often, so nobody...

Nice and clean hotel for families as well as singles. Pros: The reservation process was flawless and efficient. We had to cancel one night just before arrival and the communication was excellent. The room was relatively small for a family of four, but the price was OK and it was clean and tidy. Buffet breakfast was nice even though some...

Basic room with all the essentials. t's located in a quiet residential area, a short walk away from the city (an even shorter walk to the metro station). The price was a huge advantage, very affordable, however breakfast was not included in the initial price. For those who do want to eat at the hotel there is a nice continental...

The Meininger Hotel is a very nice step up from a hostel, but with a hostel's reasonable prices. (It's particularly good for groups of 2 and more, since you often pay per person at hostels.) It's tidy, clean, and spacious. My boyfriend and I found the beds quite comfortable and the location convenient for access to the purple and green...

We spent three nights at the Meininger Wien Downtown Sissi. It is located in a great neighborhood with several nice restaurants within short distance.

We stayed with our two pre-teen aged children and this hotel was perfect for our family vacation.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
