"Very Close to Metro Line"
Beautiful hotel that was close to everything we wanted to see. There is a hop on / hop off bus stop not far from the hotel and a metro station within 50 feet. We LOVED this location.

"convenient and classy"
We are business travelers in our late 60s and managed a pleasure stay in Vienna for a few days. Hotel location was perfect, very convenient to old city and tram and underground. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast a delight. The room was a very good size, and amenities were high quality.

"Fine for a short stay."
The hotel was very close to the U2 underground rail system which made getting around the city fairly easy. The staff were generally helpful but was a least one person on the front desk who seemed short and unwilling to provide answers when ask.

"Clark Vienna Trip"
Policy of NOT allowing Air Conditioning use is UNACCEPTABLE. Windows usage would be OK except that the hotel is located on a heavey traffic and noisy main thoroughfare so if you're given a room facing the street, sleeping with the windows open is nearly impossible, and the saddeset part is when windowsre are closed they totally blck sound out the sound but it gets HOT.

"Hotel de France"
Excellent location across from the subway station. Within walking distance of all the city attractions and a short train ride from the airport. The rooms very very clean and spacious. The hotel staff spoke English and were extremely helpful. The breakfast was excellent as well. Would certainly stay there if I were to visit Wien again! Would recommend it highly for anyone travelling with family for sightseeing or for casual travel.

"A quiet retreat"
For a hotel that is in a busy part of the city it is very quiet. A few things to take note of - every room is not the same. We were originally booked in a standard room that was the size of a closet. Due to my needing of accessibility features (which the hotel was very responsive to) they upgrade us in a room that was almost the size of a suite!And threw in free breakfast delivered to our door! A great location to transportation and the sites. Its fitness room was a bit warm for my wife and lacking in equipment but it was all very livable for 5 nights in Vienna.

"Nice hotel in the central district"
Very nice hotel, good amenities. If you like classic style older hotels, that have been properly remodeled, this is very nice, with a fabulous location. Great, modern bathroom that was as large as some bedrooms in European hotels. I was very surprised by the spacious room, big windows and very nice view. Downside - wicked expensive drinks at the bar, didn't think to ask price and got a US$40 fee for a double scotch. Beds are still old school, a 'queen' bed is two singles shoved together. single (small) duvet as sole cover and really quite hard. if you have any back issues, the bed will be a killer.

"Nice but outdated hotel"
Hotel is very presentable on outside but definitely needs some upgrades. Rooms decor is outdated and worn down. Internet (free) is super slow - 256 KB/sec AND you need to get a new login and password EVERY DAY! On the plus side- breakfast was really good, location is OK - on the ring street, you can take tram to all the museums and opera, or just walk to the center.

"Great Hotel!"
I was attending a conference at the University of Vienna. I could easily walk from the Hotel de France to the conference. The room was small but comfortable. The bathroom was much larger than the bathrooms in other European hotels that I have stayed at. The breakfast buffet was very good. Everyone was very nice. My wife accompanied me on the trip, and her birthday fell during our stay. The hotel surprised her with a slice of birthday cake! Could not have been happier with the choice of hotel. Alles gut!

"Nice Location"
This hotel was in a nice and safe location for walking around to various sites, plus there is a subway entrance right on the corner from the hotel, which was clean, safe, and easy to use to get around other parts of the city. Breakfast buffet was very good and offered a wide variety of foods. The bathroom had no hooks for bathrobe or clothing and only one small shelf below the mirror, but no drawers to put toiletries, hair products, makeup, etc. That was the only thing that was a little cumbersome.

"Great location, wonderful historical building"
Loved our stay at this hotel. Staff was helpful, courteous and nice, answered all of our questions, gave us useful information. The room was lovely, clean, comfortable and charming. The only thing I didn't like too much is the bed itself but it is very typical of Europe (very hard and uncomfortable) and lots of people love that type so I can't hold that against them. Parking of a car is outrageous at 28 euros a day but you will quickly learn that everything is very pricey in downtown and staying at this hotel is worth the money. Free wifi was spotty at best but no complaints there either as I didn't need it for work, just pleasure. It is literally steps away from the metro and tram, but walking is very doable as well (we did all three to the center). It is right by St. Stephens Cathedral and you have got to try Cafe Francaise for breakfast (as we did every morning!). We ended up getting a few snacks every morning at the metro station's small corner grocery store and I just loved shopping there! Great health foods I actually want to eat (not like all the junk in the US ;-) ). All in all, a great place to stay, relax and be in the center of all the activities! Highly recommend!

"Beautiful hotel, helpful manager"
After having some trouble during arrival, the manager was very friendly and worked to ensure we knew that he took our concerns seriously. The hotel and room were beautiful and the location was good. After reading other reviews in addition to personal experience, it seems the only improvement needs to be made with the receptionists who come off as rude and that they "are too busy".

On the top floor, the room had a loft which had a King sized bed and a half bathroom. Downstairs two giant oval windows could open to get fresh air and see the street below, with giant screens that pulled across to darken the room at night. Downstairs had a sofa, chair, desk and credenza with mini bar inside and tv on top. There was a full bathroom downstairs and a nice sized clothes closet.

Overall, very nice, but the night staff was poor. We had asked for a wake up call at 3 am in order to get an early a.m. Flight. They forgot and we did not get a call until 15 minutes before our taxi was to pick us up. It would have been awful if I had not decided to set my phone alarm as back up.

was not pleased with our stat at hotel de france. our room smelled like body odor, we thought it was just when we entered for the first time but it stayed the whole trip. we asked the receptionist at check in if we had the breakfast included and she said yes, we found out the last day it was not included and we ended up paying a ridicilously expensive buffet which we would have never ate at if we didnt have the free breakfast. We paid close to 100 dollars I believe for 2 buffet breakfasts for my husband and I,. I was outraged that we had to pay because of their mess up.

"Charming old world hotel"
The Hotel de France was perfect for a spontaneous weekend getaway to Veinna. Conveniently located at the University end of the Ringstrasse and immediately next to a U2 U-bahn station, the hotel is perfectly situated to access many of the major Viennese attractions. The hotel is charming and my room was clean and had wonderful high ceilings. My only complaint is that my bathroom might have been under one of the laundry rooms because there was a constant rattle all day. However, I didn't hear anything at night. The breakfast buffet had everything anyone could want for breakfast. It was a bit crowded for my taste, but it was a weekend so totally expected. I would definitely stay there again.
