This is a small Hotel inside a monastery. It is a very clean, calm and well located hotel. There is no TV in the room, but that wasn't a problem for us since the internet worked well. Vienna is an expensive city and the hotel was a great option for the price we payed. The breakfast buffet is great, lots of options of breads, fruits, hot beverages and yogurts. Walking distancies to many city sights. We loved our stay, would definitely come back.

Part of a monastery, Benediktushaus is a small, very clean and well sited hotel. It should be noted that amenities are limited. There is no TV, phone or A/C but this is offset by a very reasonable rate. The hotel offers a very nice breakfast buffet and is close to tram and subway lines.

And being a monastery, the church bells ring very close to your room.

Room Tip: Rooms do vary by size.

I found the guest-house very quiet and tranquil. You can even hear the sounds of the bells ringing from the adjacent church clearly. Yet, once I stepped outside the building, I could find all the city attractions very easily. The room was clean & breakfast was also good. There is a big convenient store just across the street where you can buy foods & drinks. Once you arrive at the Benediktushaus, make sure you ring the bell located near the door outside the building so the receptionist at the second floor knows you are there.

My host put me in this monastery hotel for 3 nights. A simple but clean room, and very, very quiet (no TV in all rooms, no internet possible in my room). The breakfast was really good, too. Located in the heart of Vienna, this hotel was ideal for your special guests in Vienna.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet

This is the second time wie stayed in this guesthouse.This has been a monastery since the 1100, and still is with a guesthouse added on to it. The rooms are spacious and very clean, no frills. It is very quiet, although in thre Center of Vienna, with many rooms opening to a quiet yard with big trees. The whole atmosphere is very peaceful, and there is no TV in the rooms on purpose., The ladies atthe reception area arre helpful but they arre not there at night. The breakfast is comparsble to a 3 star Hotel, There is no A/C but you can open the windows at night

You cannot find a Hotel in this location in this price range, you arre 5 minutes walking distance from the Stephans cathedral,and the Museums, and 2 minutes from the U 1 and U 3 Underground,
We will definetely return because of the peaceful atmosphere and the great location.I think everybody can be happy with this guesthouse.

Stayed: September 2016
