The location is excellent. You can take the airport bus direct to Westbahnhof and walk 5-10 minutes to the hotel, or the OBB Bahn to Wien mitte and subway from there to Westbahnhof. Both cost a fraction of the CAT which will only save you a few minutes. From the hotel you can walk to Schoenbrunn in one direction and the main sights in the other. Both are a comfortable 20 minute or so walk. The location is also good if you are going to the Hauptbahnhof as the tram no 18 is right outside the hotel and takes you directly there in 15 minutes. So if you are planning a train journey from either stations, staying here will make the whole thing less stressful.
The hotel is basic but provides all you need. Rooms have comfortable beds, wooden floors, two chairs and a tv. Bathrooms have small but efficient showers and provide just liquid soap. So don't forget to bring all your toiletries. A hairdryer is the only other item provided. There is a wardrobe and extra bedding.
This hotel advertises its price outside daily and we were surprised to see how it varied during the week we were here, one day being 59 another 110 euros. Its competitive price means that it is very busy. Breakfast is excellent value. Staff are friendly and calm.
This isnt a charming hotel, nor does it feel very Austrian, but it is exactly what travellers coming to see the sights of a city want at a price that is reasonable.
