"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.

"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
"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Nice location, steps from metro station and attractions, small bathrooms and slightly outdated rooms, breakfast was OK.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"Nice but outdated hotel"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!

"Extremely well situated"
Met by friendly staff, all very helpful. Large room and breakfast to die for- expansive and delicious.. We had a large room which was clean and air condintioned which was needed due to the heat wave.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Traditional Hotel with great access to downtown"
Although a little dated, the price I got through hotels.com was great. Included breakfast which was a nice value, so that was convenient. Overall a nice stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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!

"nice hotel,minutes to public transportation"
nice hotel with nice staff.The hotel's room is small with dark walls and a very old TV(but the room is clean).The breakfeast was excellent.Overall, i will recomend it to a friend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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".

We enjoyed our 7-night at the hotel, which is located near public transportation and in walking distance of many major sites. The hotel also offers an excellent breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel De France. Stay here"
I highly recommend this hotel. It is gorgeous! Beautiful chandeliers everywhere. The room is very nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is simply amazing. And the staff is wonderful. It is situated very well in Vienna's center, next to all attractions. If I return to Vienna, I will definitely stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Hotel, Wonderful Stay"
My wife and I stayed at the Hotel de France for four nights in March. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was so helpful and kind to us. The breakfast was superb--both delicious and abundant. Every aspect of our stay was wonderful.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Vienna in March 2014"
Excellent location. Convenient to attractions and UBahn. Lots of the attractions are within walking distance or reachable by public transportation. Enjoyable experience. Good breakfast and access to quick snack for lunch and nice restaurants for dinner within 10 minutes by UBahn.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A gem in the middle of Vienna"
It is incredible. Nothing for the price in Europe. The breakfast is complimentary and it is one of the best I have seen at a hotel. The location is perfect. Literally perfect. Stay hereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Vienna at its Best"
Perfect blend of old and new - creating chef and comfort . Staff was accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was outstanding . Location was perfect ( for my Freud interests and generally ) Hotel de France was the perfect place for a remarkable two daysGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is in a nice area with lots to see close by. Rooms are quaint and very clean. Hotel staff is very nice and helpful. There are plenty of large chain hotels around, but for the price, Hotel de France is a perfect choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel near the Metro"
Over all a great hotel! The lobby and the bar area were very well designed and clean. The free breakfast included everything you would want. From The deli cold cuts to a hot station to Fruits and yogurt. It even had a great coffee maker.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just make sure you set your alarm"
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel's location was perfect!15 min. walk distance to historic city-center.And only just 20 mt.to Schottentor U-Bahn station and also inside of U-Bahn,there's a Tram Station!But as always in the Europe,it's not a 5 stars hotel.Rooms are old furnished.But anyway,what do you expect from a hotel in the vacation?To be in the good location or high room […] standart!I just expect cleanliness and a good location.

"would not recommend"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Next to metro line U2. Takes you easy around the city. Walking distance for sightseing. Good breakfast. Free wifi!! Big rooms. We had a standard room. Two bathrooms!:)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

"Great Location, nice rooms"
Located in the city center, right next to the U-bahn station. Very good breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great room with a twist"
Hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. The bar area was cosy, pleasant, the bar was well appointed, and the piano playing rounded the Vienna atmosphere. Our room was large, very clean, but every day there was a sour smell in the room. Funny enough it was not coming from any of the two bathrooms; mystery and very unpleasant. Secondly, the mattresses […] were quite worn out; new comfortable mattresses will be appreciated. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel with bad service"
The hotel was gorgeous - much better than it appeared in pictures - and in a wonderful location, but when we arrived in addition to requesting our passports, credit cards and confirmation code, the woman at the front desk also wanted a print out of our hotel receipt which we did not have. She made a big fuss and was astounded that we didn't have it. […] We told her we could look in our email and send her something more and she demanded that we did, but their internet did not work. This was all at 11pm after a long flight and train ride. Great hotel, but someone should tell the front desk to be a bit more polite and gracious and perhaps change the documents you require for check in and/or upgrade your internet service (it went in and out the whole length of our stay).

Great breakfast was the highlight of the hotel...Genuine Expedia guest review
Vienna is a remarkable city, and especially beautiful at Christmas. We enjoyed wonderful concerts, informative tours, and delicious food. The hotel is located within 15 minutes walking distance of most areas of the city. An underground station is just across the street which made easy access to just about anywhere. The hotel facilities were nice, and […] the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were adequate....larger than many European rooms, and the bathrooms had showers. Beware the prices in the hotel bar. A glass of orange juice is as much as, or more than, a glass of wine. Our breakfast was included in our rate,( we had read the the breakfast is very expensive, so we were delighted to have that perk), and it was delicious. A full menu that kept us going until dinner. I would definitely recommend the Hotel de France!! For excellent dinner choices, choose either Cafe Leupold or Cafe Landtmann, both about 5 minutes walking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel the France Vienna"
I have been many times in this beatifull city and alway the the 5 stars hotels.This time a have just a overnight stay i decided to try other hotel been in a good location.From the time that i come to hotel (5 star) no body was to helo with the luggage(was evning).the check in time was one of the longest one that can remember.he lobby was poor and old […] and the room also.Every thing was under expactation for a five star hotel in Vienna.Furniciture old in poor,the baths also.The breakfast was fine but no for 5 star in Vienna specially the restaurant.In location is great but the hotel itself it is under 4 star one.The checking out was a very long procces (many people checvking out and just one person take care for) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel decor was nice, but amenities fall short of satisfactory. The beds were ok, but came with 2 thin sheets of cotton that were intended as pillows. The A/C control in the room did not work. When I called the front desk, I was informed that the control the temperature and not the guest. The TV was a joke. It was an old tube TV that did not […] work consistently. When the tech came fix it the first time, he simply banged on it repeatedly until it worked....nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant staff, clean, good food for breakfast."
The front desk staff was great, helping us out with directions, converters for our iPhones, and telling us about things to do in Vienna. The breakfast is awesome with a large variety of foods, and fruits. Great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Outstanding location and great value"
I had a great experience at this convenient, clean and friendly hotel. At a corner with the Circle Tram, to subway stops and one light rail, this is a great location especially if sightseeing or attending an event at the Messe (the Wien/Vienna Messe/Convention Center is literally ten minutes from door to door on the U-2). Room was clean. Bed was comfortable, […] plenty of hot water and great water pressure. My room was quiet and large. Breakfast was very impressive and it and internet were included in my room rate.

"The Beautiful Hotel de France"
There were 4 of us and we all loved the Hotel de France in Vienna. The rooms were wonderful, beds comfortable, lovely bar area, very close to all the city sites all for a very nice price. I would highly recommend staying at Hotel de France for your visit to Vienna.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel, great location"
This is a lovely hotel in a great, central location. Easy train/metro ride in from the airport, with a metro stop and trams half a block away. The hotel is nicely appointed with a welcoming salon/bar area and a decent gym. Breakfast was quite generous. Our only disappointment was the Superior Standard Double Room, which we booked as part of a hotel/airfare […] expedia package. Our room was considerably smaller than a friend's Superior Standard Double Room. Whether it was just our bad luck or a consequence of the package deal, the room was definitely small. Even so, it was comfortable and clean, with a large bathroom. I would recommend this hotel to anyone interested in exploring central Vienna. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
