I stayed here for two nights. It's a new hotel next to the new train station. The station has a shopping centre with many food outlets and of course local transit connections to the whole city. The shower is basically in the room rather than a bathroom and not at all private so if you're sharing keep that in mind. The room was nice and excellent value for the price.
The hotel is so called smart hotel. So smart that the light is uncontrollable. We turn off the lights before bed and in half and hour or less, all lights will turn on by itself. Made sleeping through the night difficult. That's is the problem of too much software.
Besides the above, the hotel provide a clean and comfortable bed. It was a tram right outside the door that takes you into the old town.
Hotel Caroline is in the 10th district of Vienna (Favoriten) which is a working mans area.I picked this hotel as the one i normally go to was full........ and was i glad it was full, because Hotel Caroline was a Gem!! the reception staff could not have been more helpful and friendlier, the room was always clean and tidy and the Buffet breakfast was good and filling,a special mention for the the kitchen staff.... you are fabulous.
The 14a bus leaves directly out the front of the hotel and takes you directly to the Mariahilfe strasse the main shopping street in Vienna and the U bahn and tram service is close by.
Would i stay here again................ DEFINATELY
Location is good, very close to Wien Hbf, just 2-3 stations to main shopping area, but no water kettle or drinking water provided in the room. Feel a bit inconvenient to go down to the lounge for water.
"A very nice apartment on 9. floor with city view"
The one- room apartment, quite new and very modern, was a pleasant surprice! Here you find a King bed, an additional sofabed and a well equipped kitchen. The eating table has four tall chairs. The bathroom has a bathtub/shower and a washing machine. The toilet is in a separate room. The large walk-in closet is very practicle. The apartment is quiet with sound proof windows. There is also a balcony, a TV and free internet. Since this is an apartment without a front desk, the host met us when we arrived, gave us the key and useful information. Then we were on our own for the rest of the time we stayed there. A food store is located close to us in Hauptbahnhof (main railwaystation), which also has a modern shopping center, a lot of restaurants, and access to U-bahn (the Underground system). A restaurant is located in the same building as the apartment. All in all, this was very much to our liking!
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.
