Easy location, friendly front-desk, excellent breakfast, clean rooms. What I didn't like: weird shaped bathtub/shower. Difficult to get in and out. The carpet in the very nice room is ready for change.

This hotel is in really good shape even though its decoration is in a classic style. Rooms and all instances are really clean and counts with a friendly staff. It's well located and very convenient to move to anywhere in Vienna

Dear juanM8200YM, we appreciate your nice review and thank you for taking the time to post your feedback on TripAdvisor. As you mentioned our Hotel Erzherzog Rainer is probably the most “Viennese” of all the Schick Hotels and focuses a lot on tradition. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and wish you, a nice spring continuation.

A lovely classic hotel: very comfortable and with every facility you need. Beds comfortable and shower excellent. The breakfast was superb. We ate in the hotel restaurant too and the food was good traditional fare. Wifi had a strong signal. The location is minutes away from Belvedere, Karlsplatz, Opera, Naschmarkt and the centre. Everything you need from a hotel.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms were comfortable and pleasant, the food in the restaurant excellent and we couldn't fault the service we received. The hotel is well situated for the Ringstrasse and the State opera house.
