Our family run establishment is only 5 minutes away from the Ringstrasse and lies directly on the metro line U6. The hotel is famous first of all for its excellent service and very rich hot and cold breakfast. The General Hospital and numerous private hospitals, the Viennese Brunnen and Yppen street markets, the Freud museum, Volksoper, Votivchurch, City hall or Palace Gschwandner are also in the walking distance. Because of a good location near the metro line U6 all the places of interest - from Grinzing to Schonbrunn - are easy to reach. The rooms are equipped with minibar, hair dryer, writing case, alarm clock, WiFi, sat-TV, radio, soundproof windows, phone... Classical live music on Sunday breakfast, leafy courtyard, 24 hours open bar with Viennese wines, private SPA or a Nespresso machine in your room are only few of the many extra services we offer, which explain our slogan "3 stars hotel with 4 stars service and 5 stars charm". Our hotel was built in 1901 as a wedding gift and offers for more than 111 years lived hospitality and Viennese tradition, also marked in the successful architectural symbiosis of Art Nouveau with modern elements.

It is the 2nd time I have been in this hotel. I like its blue front. In my opinion everything is made so that you have a good stay : comfortable rooms, silent, clean, kindness of all staff members, special little attentions.

I am staying here for a dew days and I am really happy with Donauwalzer. The location is great and its a quick walk to the inner city, there is a tram stop outside for windier weather and the staff has been lovely! The rooms on 5th floor have been designed with local companies,

Strange one this, check in was easy and the staff are great, we were given an upgrade to a room with a Jacuzzi, which was a nice touch, however this room didn't have a shower so we were then shown another room which did have a shower , but a separate toilet which was very small,

We stayed two nights at this hotel. The room was well appointed, there was a restaurant in the hotel although we didn't eat there, so I can't comment on it. There was a tram stop right in front of the hotel which made it very easy to get to the beautiful Christmas Market. If

Vienna Pass provides free transportation & discount for maaaany attractions and it's only Monday to Sunday. Ιf you are going to visit the majority of those then yes, it's worthy. Keep in mind that most of them are closed on Monday. We also stayed for 5 days but we only bought a weekly transportation card that cost 17e for each and then bought the tickets for the must see museums separately which was cheaper. This is of course what worked for us. I hope I helped you.

So.. here is a funny story. The tram system was slightly confusing to say the least. We bought a 48 hour transport ticket which could be used on buses too. We got a train for one stop and transferred onto another tram (wrong one) off and on to another (wrong one). Finally, got on a tram and had around a 10 minute walk to the hotel. When we checked in we found that there was a closer tram No. 44 (about five stops from the centre), which we got from Schottentor stop in the centre of town (so get a tram to that stop and get on the No. 44 would be my advice). There is a stop heading back into town centre outside hotel. The tram stops further up the street on the right and it is a few minutes walk back up to the hotel. Enjoy the beautiful city!

There's a train (called CAT, you don't have to get out of the airport, follow the green signs, buy a ticket - a single ticket is 11€ as of today) that gets to Wienmitte station in sixteen minutes. That's right in the centre of Vienna. From there there's public transport (in the Wienmitte shopping centre they sell tickets and will tell you which numbers you need). Otherwise you can take a taxi from Wienmitte station.

Yes, Edith you can book rooms with air conditioner as well as upgraded rooms. We booked through Tripmasters & so we had a standard double room. The upgraded rooms were not available when we reached the hotel. The Reception desk will book you the taxi at any time. We took the taxi to the Westbahnhof station at 6:00am. as we were going to Salzburg. The taxi fare was approx.Euros 10 as far as I remember. The Reception desk will give you an idea of the fare to the Main Station. You will love Vienna !
