Loved staying here
Staff So kind and comfortable to stay, location is quite nice, quiet at night and tram stop is less than a minute walk away. Nicely-equipped clean room and public kitchen. Would definitely stay here again if I visit Vienna!

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Room comfort
The price was right
Cons: Did not receive any email from the hotel with a code needed to check in after 1400. The instructions on thr front door stated to press the button for reception and another button for 'emergency'. Eventually got through to someone via phone. Room light kept flickering on throughout the night and early morning, each time i would have to physically turn it off. Mentioned it to reception after the first night, still had thr same issue the second night. Pros: Good location, room overall was perfect for one person, amenities (kitchen, laundry) were great.
