I have choosed to stay at this hotel because of the good location, price and stars rating. I have always believe that 3 stars hotels are a better place to stay for a few days holiday. I don't know who gave those stars to the hotel, but he/ she has made a big mistake. When I was coming back to...

The hotel is located directly at the Gürtel which isn't exactly a nice location but its just a few meters from the U1 station that takes you to the heart of the city.

Our family stayed here for 1 night as part of a tour group. This hotel is a good base for exploring Vienna because of it's close proximity to the train station.

My travel purpose was as a transient for a short night in Vienna. It has been a long ride for almost 14 hours to Vienna and i was just thinking of a good rest in a fair hotel. First of all, there were prostitutes staying in the front of the hotel waiting to be picked up by the guests. One...

I was travelling solo around Europe and stayed at Congress Hotel in Vienna on August 27 and 28. I found the front desk gentlemen very nice and helpful. The room was reasonable with clean bathroom. Water in shower was scarce. I stayed in the 4th floor at the back and with the windows closed, it was quiet but with the...
