Hotel Austria

Reviewed 27 February 2012

This has got to be one of the best choices in Vienna. Five minute walk from airport bus stop/U bahn stop, St Stephens, beautiful old town section inside the Ringstrasse, comforable spotless rooms, generous breakfast included in the room price, and helpful staff. We stayed at Hotel Austria three nights. Not sure if it was an upgrade or a standard room but we had a room with two single beds and another room with bathroom and a day bed/pullout bed. Room would have been quite small for two people and luggage without the extra room. Beds were quite comfortable. Good quality towels. Good water pressue in shower (though the shower door opening would be tricky for a large person to exit). Double paned windows kept room quiet. We finally figured out how that turning the knob on the radiators in a clockwise direction turned off the heat (I think the room was set at about 80 degrees F)
Breakfast selection was wonderful - juices, fresh fruit, coffess (including espresso machine), yogurt, museli, several kinds of fresh breads, eggs, bacon, sausage, cold cuts, cheeses, salmon.
Staff was helfpful with directions on how to navigate the public transporation system.
Free PC/printer in lobby -helpful for checking into flights and printing boarding passes.

On a very cold weekend (3/2-5/2) with -15C and with an elderly father to "look after", I was definitely hoping for the best choice while booking a hotel. The first signs cane when I kept receiving interesting newsletters by the hotel, showing this is a serious business. But, hey, I m not fooled that easily. When I arrived, I must say I was surprised. I was expecting something good, having looked at the photos here, but to get such a comfortable, traditional, warm and stylish room made me very happy. I actually felt as if I was a guest at some friend's house. The flat TV's and the tea kettle was the finishing touch to a room with very warm, brand new bathroom and clean comfy beds. Smiling receptionists who did their best to use English and a 4* superior breakfast (Come on, champagne is something I' ve only had in the German Hilton's before!) make me suggest this sweet hotel as the best choice.

Room Tip: Book early!

Very nice rooms, quiet although just a few steps from Stephansplatz, the rooms are comfortable with large beds, clean, coffee and tea facilities, nice facilities and furniture everywhere, the breakfast is OK, a pity the coffee is machine-made ! I'll certainly go back, the staff are very competent and friendly.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are suites, with 2 beds and a sofa-bed. Some beds have a large bedroom.

Stayed here previously about 5 years ago. Once again, I was delighted. Friendly people. Nice room, spotlessly clean. Great location. Excellent breakfast in an elegant breakfast-room. Free fast WiFi in the room.
If I had one issue it would be the temperature - it was very warm (which isn't really a complaint, given how cold it was outside!). But this would not stop me returning - I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else in Vienna. If dining near the hotel, avoid Lindenkeller on Rotenturmstrasse.
While the CAT train to the airport takes only 20 minutes or so, there are works ongoing at Mitte station so allow an extra 15 minutes just for that. It's a very straightforward metro journey from Swedenplatz, one stop to Mitte station.

Excellent location, although the room was not big it was very confortable, very good breakfast, acess to internet. They lent me an Ipad, but called me while I was already sleeping, asking me to return it. So I didn't like the attitude of this member of the staff, but the others were nice.
