How to Get There
Except one terrible incident this is quite a good hotel. I was very satisfied until "that" Monday morning. The room was clean, I liked the pure white minimal design, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was a positive surprise.
BUT... on that Monday morning they got the stupid idea to start doing maintenance works just after 7 am. Clapping, loud noises, moving the furniture without lifting them. It was impossible to sleep anymore. I understand that for a common maintenance guy the working day starts at 7 am and I know handymen can't imagine that other people may sleep longer. But the management should be able to!
Hey, I am your guest, I am on a vacation and I would like to rest!
I don't blame the guy who did the clapping for hours but I blame the management of this hotel. Train your staff, have policies! Good sleeping quality is the most important feature of a hotel and my resting in hour hotel was ruined by your own staff.
We had a lovely stay in this hotel. We found it to be a really nice hotel in a very central location in Vienna and close to public transport links. It is only a short walk to one of the busiest and longest shopping areas in Vienna, Mariahilfer Strasse. The staff were lovely and helpful and the room and facilities were excellent. When we arrived we were upgraded to a prestige room free of charge and without asking for the upgrade. There are renovation works going on directly across the street from the front of the hotel, but we were lucky in that we were there on a holy day (bank holiday) and the other days were at the weekend and there were no works going on. Lovely and quiet. The breakfast was good and there are loads of restaurants very close to the hotel for lunch or evening meals. We really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation going back there again.
best asset the very professional and friendly staff at the reception...Many thanks to all of them...Rooms are renovated, brand new, value for money dare I say, , normal hotel size, nicely decorated however if you get a room facing the street be ready to wake up at 7 till 16.00 hours, with the unbelievable noise from construction work at the opera a few metres across the steet. We were moved to another room at the rear else we would have checked out..Bath tub slippery and inconvenient.. There is no restaurant or bar..rooms facing the street. Location is fine very close to the tube , and the shopping area... Door opening cards failed daily and every day I had to get down to obtain a new one !! Pillows are empty pillow cases without any pillow support...In general the hotel is very good, perfect location however with construction work a few steps away , choose this hotel if you are used to all the bang bangs and screams of labourers as well as the sound of military tanks...
