Stayed at the Star Inn for my trip to Eurovision in May. For my first time in Vienna, it was the perfect choice of hotel with all the incredible transport links literally over the road.
I got a warm welcome from the staff and was able to check in early...which was very helpful to freshen up after the 26hr journey from NZ!
The building is very new and nicely fitted out - the room was comfortable as was, even without the aircon turned on. Great bathroom/shower and had good sleeps on the bed.
Complimentary fast WiFi and plenty of TV channels to choose from (including international/english news channels).
Breakfast selection was comprehensive and frequently topped up - it ran until 10.30am (11 on weekends) which is really good if you want a later start to the day.
As mentioned, you can't beat this location with all the transport connections at Hauptbahnhof station. Bus, tram, underground and suburban all run through here and you can be in the city centre in minutes.
Within a day I felt confident about getting around town on the trams & underground. I used the D tram to Karls Platz or U1 Underground to Stephans Platz to hit the shops.
The supermarket at the station is on the hotel side and open until 11pm which is really handy.
Highly recommend this hotel on all fronts and would happily stay again!
"Not fancy and very basic, but it worths the price"
If you come to Vienna by bus to Sudbanhof Station, the hotel is walking distance. Near affordable restaurants and shops in Favoriten Strasse. But not fancy, room is just clean and very basic. Hallways and entrance needs a renewal, not AC, but even in summer, you would not need that in Vienna. They offer a good breakfast for EUR 4, that is very convenient for Vienna prices.
Dissapointed from Georgia
The hotel Birg-Cyrus is located near the Südbahnhof railway station, in the immediate vicinity of the Kepplerplatz …More
The 10th district of Vienna, Favoriten is close to the city centre and well-connected by public transport. It is known for Wasserturm Favoriten, a 19th century water tower and lookout, and nearby Spinnerim am Kreuz, a stone tower more than 600 years old. Large parks dot the area, which is also home to the Kurzentrum Oberlaa, a luxurious thermal spa, and the Generali Arena, a football stadium.
