"Nice hotel and location, but bad room."
The hotel was in a good location and was basically in very nice condition, but the room was not great! The pillows were horribly flat, the bed wasn't comfortable, the shower door leaked badly, our view was into an airshaft, the tv was a tiny, old tube tv that stopped working after the first night. We booked a basic room so maybe the more expensive rooms […] are better.... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is very good."
Pillows were very soft , we requested for other. But ıt was not acceptable. Because they did not have other kind. Also it happened for conditioner. There wasn't hair conditioner. When I asked for it,the lady told me that they dont have.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This will be "my hotel in Vienna""
Outstanding location right at the Schottentor U-bahn station. Excellent base for exploring the city. My room was in the "back" section of the hotel, not the newest decorations, but spacious, and very much in the character of traditional Viennese luxury accommodations 0 couldn't have asked for better value for the money. Nice large bathroom with towel […] warmer and bathrobes. Staff was courteous and helpful, you can exchange currency at the front desk which may come in handy. Would definitely stay there again.

"Grand style hotel with great breakfast."
The hotel is located next to a metro line with easy access to the Museums or other sites.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, easily reachable"
Few things made my stay uncomfortable such as the following:- TV location in the room, only when you are on the bed you can watch it even though it's located very high near to the sealing and its old fashion. No water facility for washing and cleaning in the toilet which is separated from the shower. Room size is uncomfortable. House keeping is so poor, […] if you drop waste in the room no one cares to clean it up or to remove it. Other minke issues. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, decent hotel."
The hotel is on the Schottenring, so a good location for walking the first district. Very near the university, Rathaus and Burg Theater. Rooms were spacious and included an extra half bath and large, walk-thru closet. The mattresses were old and tired, but linens were good. The hotel does not have a grand entrance and lobby, but lots of room and services. […] Hallways and staircases were lined with old paintings. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Excellent, comfortable accommodations. Very pleasant stay. Recommend highly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel, great location."
We chose this hotel because of its location, around 15 minutes by foot to all the main city attractions and has a metro station right next to it. The hotel is really clean and well kept, we took a junior suite and it was really spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was varied and rich and the service was also very good. My only complaint are the beds, […] too soft for my taste. Other than that, I recommend staying at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location for the price"
We've stayed at the Hotel de France both times we've visited Austria. To be honest, the room we got the first stay was much nicer than the one we were given most recently. During last week's stay, we were originally given a room that was small, dark, and depressing. This was after we'd been forced to change clothes in the hotel lobby bathroom when we […] arrived early that morning, because there were supposedly no rooms available, not even upgrades. When I mentioned the room we'd stayed in on our previous trip, another room miraculously became available. That being said, there was nothing wrong with the hotel once we settled into our room. It's in a great location; it literally sits in front of a subway and tram stop, from which you can easily get anywhere in the city and its outskirts in just a few minutes. The Rathaus and Votive church are no more than a five-minute walk away and even Staphansdom can be reached on foot in a half hour or less. The breakfast was fine, and the staff were cheerful and competent. We had a great time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Visiting Vienna for three days from California"
Really a nice place, in the most perfect location. Right in the middle of the interesting buildings and museums. A block from Freud museum. Good food for room service!Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.

Is not a 5 stars hotel at all, vienna is such a lovely city And this hotel is not with in The standard. I wont return everGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good place to Stay"
The location of the hotel is very good in that it is in the Innerstadt but on the periphery so everything is walkable but you are not in teh middle of the noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel. Good location. Could be cleaner."
We enjoyed very much our stay. Employees were friendly and willing to please. When we return to Vienna we will stay in The Hotel de France again.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was great...fantastic location, friendly staff. It's a little old and could use some updating. The breakfast was fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
wifi was awful in my room. Swisscom their provider's internet took upto 2-3 minutes to load one webpage and a 1MB download took over an hour. I had to leave the hotel to go to a cafe to get my work done. In the lobby it was better.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful breakfast, convenient and comfortable"
The Hotel de France is a very attractive hotel, conveniently located to historical sights and to subway and tram lines. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast is wonderful. The staff was very efficient and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

Well-located and convenient. Hotel is a bit dated, but has a lot of that older European charm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice location, steps from metro station and attractions, small bathrooms and slightly outdated rooms, breakfast was OK. Reasonable rates for Vienna.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.

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!

"Great place in Vienna!"
Excellent service and superb breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is updated with good size rooms and modern baths with all the amenities you would expect. The staff is very accommodating and the breakfasts have everything you could ever want. The location is about a 15 minute walk from all the sites or a short underground ride. The underground is right outside the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
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".
