This hotel is a 15 minute Metro journey from the city centre, but it is situated in a lovely quiet area near the Danube Canal. Lots of restaurants and parks close by. Easy to get around by Metro and some lovely canal walks too.

Our review could have been much better if not by a specific bad experience. We had reserved parking and then paid for it, but after leaving for a while, when we returned there was no available any space. The "solution" was that the hotel paid for an alternative parking 600 mts away across the river. According to them that was...

Dear guest, thank you very much for the comment. We are very sorry for the inconveniences with the car parking. We have a garage in our hotel, but we also have a parking garage outside the hotel, which is 7 minutes walking distance. We are again very sorry. Lovely greetings from Vienna, your MEININGER Team

It was very cheap, but relaxing and cosy and it was money well spent. Each room had a TV, and a simple but delicious breakfast was included. Also it was very close to the train station and a very clean and modern high street which so many different types of shops and restaurants. They all spoke very good English as...

Stayed there for two nights with a group of international friends. The location is not the best if you are a tourist, but you can either walk or take a tram to the metro station. But the accommodations were great. Very neat and comfortable rooms, clean washrooms in the room. Also enjoyed breakfast and the common area in the lobby.

This is my 5th night at this hotel/hostel. The start was with the check-in, the girl at the reception was very unwelcoming. I don't know if she's racist or that's her normal attitude. I haven't seen her smile in the past 5 days which was a bit irritating to be honest. The wi-fi is definitely the best thing about this...

Great place to stay if you are looking for a super clean, new hostel with comfy beds and pillows. Plenty of plugs available on the room. It's not on the city centre but a 20 min walk will take you there.

Stayed for 2 nights with children - allright for cheap accomodation. clean, modern though rather low-end equipment, not much comfortable sleep. Children rated the hotel better than us thanks to free (and working!) wi-fi. What we acknowledged is the equipped kitchen for free use.

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.
