The location is ideal for those who want a calm walk in the morning with gorgeous views of Belvedere Park and a cup of coffee with a delicious cake in the Palace. The rooms are very comfortable, with hot water starting immediately. 15 minutes walk to Opera House. 5 min walk to the underground station from which it takes only 20 min to airport.
Stopped on business, great location for the Vienna Centre. A little out of the way for the city itself, but a €20 cab ride is a small inconvenience for stopping in such a great hotel. Staff were great, room was amongst the best I've stopped in, and the food was good. Excellent views over the city from the huge windows. All in; top notch hotel.
For as little as I paid, I got what I paid for. The room was surprisingly large and clean (although pillows were Euro flat) with just a sink (I did 3 days "dorm style" with toilet/ shower down hall -- which was fine). Until the last night, having the window open was great for fresh ventilation. However, that last night smokers checked in below me and opened their window too and it reeked. (Not the hotel's fault, they told me when I checked out that floor is non-smoking). The reason I got so much smell was that my room faced an air shaft (again, for the low price, not unexpected). It's not pretending to be the Ritz (a 10 minute walk away), but it's in a very nice area for sights, tony shops and restaurants (there's a Spar grocery on the block which helps with drinks and munchies). There's an U-bahn stop a block away that's one stop from airport express train. I'd stay there again if I had to visit Vienna again (which I have no desire to - another story).
We were upgraded to a suite, which was awesome. One and 1/2 baths, separate living room, huge bathroom, I felt like I had my own apartment in Vienna. Not as close to the old stadt, but close to the Bellvedere Palace and St. Peters Church, and there is a fun brewery restaurant nearby. Close to public transportation to get anywhere. Very easy to get to the airport as the S bahn station is just at the end of the street which connects in one stop to the train to the airport.
If you are visiting Wien for a few days, Mailberger Hof will put you in the proximity of all the must-sees&does.
Even the rooms facing the street are quite quiet. Okay, the mattresses of a **** hotel should be better but the rooms are fair sized. Breakfast lounge was spectacular and the food variety was fairly satisfactory. All day free expresso/capucino & tea in a very nice lounge was another nice gimmick.
Hotel was very cozy and clean with free parking, but with an additional fee for breakfast (~16eur not sure if per person or per room as I stayed there with my wife, we, of course, didn't pay extra fee for breakfast). WiFi might be free but with terrible reception. Only got some reception at the door. Hotel is a bit far from the transportation.
