I arrived in Vienna at 9am with two friends, fresh (or not so) off the night train from Rome. It was the third country on our Interrail adventure. We took a taxi from the main station straight to the hotel, costing only 15 euros between us. On arrival we were greeted pleasantly by (Mimi) who was polite and extremely helpful,... More

Awesome hotel, but a bit far from the railway station. Although TRAM31 goes nearby. The supermarkets/stores are not near, and remember they all close around 7-8 PM. The hotel has a great facility of a "Guest Kitchen" in which you can cook your type of food, and also some things are provided free of cost in the kitchen. It also... More

First of all this is a hostel, so adjust your expectations accordingly. I didn't, since the photos on booking.com were quite nice. So I booked a room for 2 adults and a 6 year old via booking.com. After 3 days they called me and told that I have to pay +100 euros for 3 nights since the initial reservation was... More

Excellent hotel. Very good location really close to the center, all just a short walk away. Very clean, helpful staff, good value for money. We highly recommend. It is relatively modern and is suitable for couples and vacation in Vienna. Breakfast is decent and relatively inexpensive.

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.
