After reading positive reviews I booked a room at Pension Lerner for 2 nights. The cost was average for the season and location. When I arrived the staff was helpful and the room was much larger than expected. Unfortuantely on our second day we left the room early in the morning. I read a sign in the bathroom stating to...

We stayed at Pension Lerner as part of our Austrian Trip. Location: This is right in the old town near Stephanplatz - only 5-7 mins walk to the main square. Anyhow, it is located on a very quiet street with a few pubs/fast food restaurants and also the Billa supermaker nearby. There is lots of gelati stores along the way.... More

Very well situated, only 10 min. walk from the historical center. Calm street, very nice people (several young girls with their different english levels but all very kind, especially for the local standards!!) who welcome you. Room is a very cosy one, perfect heating (very windy Vienna January) and enough space. Toilet and bathroom separated. There was a minor negative... More

November 2006 Single female traveller, Norfolk, UK Stayed for four nights in this great little hotel. Its location was the reason I chose the Lerner but I got the added bonus of very friendly and helpful owners whose English is much better than they think it is! Breakfast was excellent in a small cosy room which made it easy to... More

Have to agree with the other reviewers here: Lerner is in a fabulous location, just off the Am Hof, and a few minutes' walk from major Vienna tourist attractions such as the Stephansdom, Hofburg complex, museum quarter, Parliament, the Votivkirche, etc. The staff was also extremely friendly and helpful to us, particularly as we were leaving. They found an early-morning... More

The Pension Lerner is an excellent deal for the location. We walked everywhere from our hotel, which is always a plus in getting to know a city. Our room was clean, sunny, and relatively spacious with huge, tall windows overlooking a fairly quiet street. We even had a little couch. The furniture was a bit mismatched and shabby, but nothing...

Great location and value for money. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and basic. Prior to arriving, I received 2 emails confirming my booking and advice on how to get to the hotel from the airport. Great service! Walking distance to attractions. Breakfast is reasonable.

Even though the place could do with an overall revamp, I agree with previous reviews in that Pension Lerner is all about location, on a quiet street in the very heart of historic Vienna, almost around the corner from the Cathedral and the Imperial Palace. The pension was clean, buffet breakfast was tasty, and the young ladies who looked after... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
