The Baroque beauty of Vienna has enchanted some of the world’s greatest musicians, artists and thinkers over the centuries. Schubert, Klimt and Freud all hail from the Austrian capital, which is considered by in-the-know travelers to be one of the world’s most incredible cities to visit. With everything from opulent palaces, grand museums, exquisite cuisine and all the high-end shopping you could dream of, this city will have you thinking you’ve stepped right into a fairy tale.
Standing near the famous Naschmarkt, in the heart of the fifth district, the four-star pentahotel Vienna contributes its own hip flavor to the city’s inspiring atmosphere. Inside this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, the stylishly stark rooms showcase design by acclaimed Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun, and there’s a sauna and a small gym to dip into after a long day of sightseeing. So whether you’re here to see the grand palaces – or relax in a palace of your own – pentahotel Vienna has you covered.
The pentahotel Vienna’s six ambiently lit floors house 117 stylish rooms, each offering a relaxed, soothing vibe coupled with striking Matteo Thun design flourishes. Think vibrant Cubist and floral wall designs, mixed in with contemporary red-leather chairs and comfortable dark-wood beds.
The pentahotel Vienna is in the heart of the city’s Margareten district, near the famous Naschmarkt. Nearby is the Albertina art museum, the 564-ft.-tall Danube Tower, the royal-turned-presidential abode of the Hofburg palace, Österreichische Galerie Belvedere and St. Stephen’s Cathedral. You’re ideally placed for excursions to the Danube Valley, Burgenland or over the nearby borders to Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
How to Get There
A great hotel! Great value for money, delicious breakfast, friendly staff, sauna and gym available, good entertainment for the common area, quiet in the night. Nice location. Great experience and I will definitely recommend it!
The location is ok, around 25/30 minutes walk to the centre. The entrance to the hotel/ reception area has only steps so one has to lift the luggage, cannot pull it up, the first door is automatic but the second one is not, so if you walk in with your luggage, it's difficult, as there is no one to hold the door. We had a very unpleasant experience with one of their staff--- Larissa--- who was quite rude & had sooo much attitude that when we said we would like to complain she had the audacity to say---"Go ahead & do what you want, it won't make a difference since I am quitting in 2 weeks anyway". We are very well travelled but hv never come across anyone with such an attitude, thought she was a bit indifferent to us, since we were from India, cause her behaviour with others from elsewhere was polite. She is too young & has a long way to go --- so we wish the best of luck to her & hope she changes her mannerism if she wishes to succeed. The episode left us with bitter memories. Breakfast spread is very basic, no toaster, no omelettes, things did not get replenished soon. Overall a very disappointing experience, will not recommend.
We had a great stay at Pentahotel. Some challenges getting out of the pay TV loop (trying to find some news channels, but was stuck with two not so wanted adult movies...). Nice and quiet room at the 5th floor. Good service and Nice cocktails in the bar:) About 10 min walk to the nearest Ubahn station and about 25 min to the city center. All in all - very good value for the money!
I have just spent 4 nights at pentahotel in Vienna and would definitely return!!
Location- the hotel is well situated and the transport links are very good. However, please note that the nearest metro station is closed and the next one is only a 12 minute walk away. There are a number of bus stops nearby. We actually chose to walk to most places as the city centre was only 25 min walk away.
There are a number of restaurants nearby if you choose not to eat at the hotel. There is also a supermarket called Billa, where you can buy water and snacks.
Hotel and staff
The hotel itself is quite trendy, with a funky bar downstairs and for those interested there is a pool table and PS4 station on the lobby.
Our room was a good size for 3 of us ( it was a junior suite) and it was kept clean. Please note there is no safe in the room
And you need to keep and specific valuables at the reception safety deposit area.
The staff are super friendly, giving directions and advice where needed and even going the extra mile to make hot honey and lemon for my son when he was ill.
The quality and portions of restaurant food was very good and it was nice to see some good veggie options.
Breakfast was buffet style and a bit more European with slightly less to offer for vegetarians. Be prepared to wait for food to be refilled though as there are not many staff on in the morning and they seem to be very busy.
Overall we loved staying at this hotel and will definitely be back if we are in Vienna again. Thankyou!!
Great hotel beautifully decorated with lots of hidden gems, easy access to all the tourist sites slightly longer walk to the metro as the local station is being rebuilt but lovely architecture en route. Very friendly welcoming staff and nothing was too much bother. Would highly recommend.
