We always enjoy staying at this hotel. A few warnings--the hotel is not downtown. If your stay is short, you may not want to be this far out. Also, the breakfast is great, but if you have to pay separately, probably not worth it. There may be a hint of faded glory to this hotel, but our double room had...

Hotel is situated in the quiet residential area of Vienna. It is relatively good connected to the city centre by tram no. 38 (tram station is cca. 2 min. walking form the hotel) – it takes about 20-25 min. to the center of the city. The rooms, the furniture and interior decoration are very old and outdated (it reminded me...

Although the hotel is some distance from the center of the city (it is located in the 19th district), the transportation system makes it easy to get around to other parts of Vienna. The location close to Grinzing, with excellent tram service to the eateries there, is an advantage. I stayed for five nights at a very reasonable rate. The...

I stayed in the Kaiser Franz Joseph in Vienna in September for 4 nights. Rooms are clean but not particularly spacious. Single room is really a room with a single bed. Very good breakfast and I loved the service although I couldn´t check in earlier even if I kindly asked this option 2 weeks earlier. This hotel is located in...

Located in the 19th "hood" (Vienna is divided in neighbourhoods like Paris), it has very small apartments, almost impossible to move while you shower. But it's clean, it has 1h free wifi a day and it's close to a tram station.

Overall nice service, good facilities and nice size rooms. Also a good assortment at breakfast. However not quite sure of the 4 star rating. The decor is very 70's and overall in need of renovation. The rooms are clean as is the whole hotel and I would stay there again. Was there on business so area good but a bit...

Staying in Dobling

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s poshest green leafy suburb is also its most romantic hotspot. Walk up Grinzinger Strasse with its many historic wine taverns. The tops of nearby Nussberg and Reisenberg hills make for great strolls through the vineyards, and the occasional discovery of a hidden winery. Popular local weekend hangouts are Neustift am Walde with even more great wine taverns, and café restaurant Cobenzl, up on Cobenzl hill – fantastic for great vistas of Vienna. The woodland around Kahlenberg has a wonderful and not too strenuous hiking path - just don't forget the insect repellent. If you have adventurous children, take them to Waldseilpark Kahlenberg (forest rope park Kahlenberg). A must-do if you want a taste of the Vienna Woods is a stop at Josefinenhütte next door with its great food, cosy interiors and wonderful outdoor space.
