I stayed at the Hotel City Central for about 6 nights in order to attend two of Vienna's famous balls. I do not know ANY German, but that did not prevent me from having a wonderful stay. The staff all were very helpful and spoke impeccable English. Every time I left or walked in I was greeted with a friendly...

Worth the location. Beautiful antique hotel walking distance to main Attractions. Complimentary breakfast. Staff very nice and helpful. Nice large bathroom. The decor is a bit outdated but very clean. Lobby could use a facelift also But since you will not be hanging around hotel but sightseeing then it is perfect!!!

I cannot praise this hotel highly enough. Every aspect of the accommodation was of the highest standard and superb value for money. The staff were unfailingly polite and efficient. The central location (Schwedenplatz U-Bahn) was a definite bonus. I hope to make a reservation on my return visit to this impressive city.

We have been to Vienna twice. This was our first hotel (in 2013) that has two very important features: location and breakfast. In 2014, we wanted to be closer to Karlplatz, but due to limited budget, we opted for boutique hotel – wrong option! Room was descent and clean, but breakfast was way below the par for the generally high...

Excellent location but unimpressed with rooms or the bathroom facilities. Cleaning appeared quite superficial and the fixtures in the bathroom were poorly maintained. But the breakfast was GREAT and the best part of our stay.

it was very close to center, only few minutes from Schwedenplatz. You also get a voucher for a gym near-by for a discounted price. Breakfast is decent. rooms are clean and high quality. I had an antique wooden radio integrated into the room furniture. I suggest to ask for upper floors.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The name already reveals much about the smart Hotel City Central’s advantages. The central location near the 1st District, the historic centre of Vienna, coupled with the employees’ typical Viennese charm and a perfect price-performance ratio, distinguish this hotel. Behind the stylish facade, guests find a perfect refuge for their stay in Vienna. 58 rooms and three individual apartments in a nearby building are all convincing thanks to modern comforts such as air conditioning, FLAT TV with Sky programs, and WLAN (free of charge). A special attraction is the Winter Garden with its pyramid-shaped glass roof where a rich and varied breakfast is served. A comfy lobby bar assures guests’ further well-being; covered parking spaces are also available. ... more   less
