We looked for a reasonable hotel in Vienna for a family trip, 8 adults and 8 kids. This hotel was a perfect match. Well located, very close to central places, rooms for parents with 3 kids, breakfast on-site and reasonable parking. This hotel is a low cost solution, clean, with all necessary facilities.

I was expecting for the hotel to be dumpy, but was pleasantly surprised. Nothing was luxurious, but everything worked and the room was clean. The hotel was in a very quiet area of Vienna, but was consequently a bit far away from the attractions in the city centre. Would definitely stay again at €45 per night for a single room.

75 euros for a room for 3 people use good for Vienna. It's not far from the downtown in Leopoldstadt. The rooms are very modern. There's a pub on the ground floor. Breakfasts are not included. Not sure if one should take a private room in Vienna because you will need only to spend a night.

Advantages: Quiet location. Modern and very clean rooms. Friendly Staff. Disadvantages: Wifi didn´t work properly in the rooms. A little noisy. You could hear the housekeepers cleaning in the morning. No attention to detail. Far from the city centre. It takes you easily 30 minutes on foot to get to main attractions. No restaurants or bars close by.

Bad experience of my son and his friends. Would not recommend this hotel in case you want to sleep in the morning - housekeepers will wake you up, they will clean the room with guest in the bed. (?!)

A nice Hotel in the second district. It's in a good location, the City center is reachable in 15 minutes of walk. The Hotel is full of young people. I was also there with a big group in shared rooms. The beds were comfortable and the Breakfast also ok.

The personnel is rude. They don't help and don't know how to talk to people. Had a terrible experience. They didn't let us, adults, go out for a walk at midnight because some children in another group in the hall were being loud, and had nonsens arguments for this. Never coming back, and hope no one is.

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.
