This hotel is like a 5* backpackers. We had a family room with a double bed and bunks. It had a great bathroom with combined bath/shower and a separate toilet room. It was immaculately clean and staff were friendly. The breakfast was good w a reasonable amount of choice. The only reason I didn't give it 5* is because the...

Hi there! Thank you very much for your great feedback! It´s great to read that you and your family had ´such a nice time staying with us and our staff was friendly to you!

This hotel did worth our money with its clean rooms, friendly staff and the best ever breakfast served in Europe so far (amoung the same level budget-hotels)!!! It's close to public transit and close to downtown attractions within walking distance... Strongly recommend! Just one request: Please remove the pictures at the room doors. I know they represent empress Sissi, but...

Nice hotel, big room and nice room, good view from the last floor. However, it's a little far from the nearest station. If you are carrying a heavy bag, you will be a little tired. This hotel doesn't have breakfast included. In addition, you can rent bikes.

Hi there! Thank you very much for your comment! We´re glad to hear that you had a pleasant stay, even though ti sound like there was a lot of walking included. The nearest metro stop is just about 2-3min away from the hotel, it is though a bit hidden so you might not find it at first. I am sorry...

Very good new hotel, near the city center. Its clean, friendly stuff, in quite street. Breakfast is good and there is no need to eat somewhere out side early in the morning. I highly recommend it for families and friends. I hope I will come back.

Spotlessly clean. Basic but adequate rooms and bathroom, great value for money and good quality of free WiFi. 5-6 minutes walk from Taborstrasse metro station. Biggest downside is this hotel has no AC.

I stayed at this hotel when attending a conference at Messe Prater. My room was clean and the staff were friendly at the Wien Downtown Sissi. The hotel was well-located for access to the Metro. The free Wifi was excellent, and the room was reasonably priced. The rooms were described as soundproofed on booking.com but this is not the case...

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it! It was one of the cheapest options we found in Vienna and yet the only thing I could complain about was the lumpy pillows. The location is great. It's on a quiet road so we could happily sleep with the window open and yet it was only a ten minute...

We share a three bed room with an attached bathroom. The room was spacious. The bathroom was clean. The staff was friendly. The Hostel is located in a quiet street. The hostel is frequented mostly by college students. The pro of the room was that it had an air cooler which was a blessing since the temperature outside was 36...

I have been here for 2 nights with my family. Everything is perfect - clean and large room, friendly staff, free Internet. The position is good. Just 10 minutes to the closes metro station and just 15 minutes on foot to the Prater. And there is a good pub after the corner.

Good: Room and bathroom were clean, good breakfast. Bad: Reception personnel not very professional, at check-out they insisted we didn't pay breakfast, though we actually paid it entirely at check-in. We were able to prove payment with the receipt..

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
