"old style Vienna with great location"
We stayed here for four days and it was a perfect "homebase" for touring Vienna. Our room was a bit dated but that didn't matter to us. There is a convenient underground stop a half a block away. Tram line on one street over. Breakfast was plentiful. This hotel was perfect for our needs.

"Good experience"
I traveled to Vienna on business and was happy. The location is very convenient to the Metro and is easy walking distance to some of the main sites in the heart of the city. The breakfast was fabulous complete with champagne for those vacationers who want to indulge. The staff was gracious and helpful. Inside the hotel there is a bar serving drinks and coffee. Downsides: Because I was there on business, I would have preferred a place to work in my room. There is a small desk area, but without an outlet. I placed my laptop on top of the entry table which served the TV and had to unplug a light or something to serve my laptop. Plus, no chair to work. I would have also liked to have more than one pillow. (I probably could have asked for a 2nd pillow but did not bother.)

"Great cozy hotel near the Museum Quarter in Vienna"
We had a pleasant experience at this hotel. The hotel staff were amazing. Very accomodating and welcoming. The breakfast was extremely good and they had a great selection for us. The hotel is very close to the city, and you can walk to many of the locations or just hop on the subway to get anywhere you need to go. It is literally a 1 minute walk to the nearest subway station. The area near the hotel is relatively quiet. Our family really enjoyed staying here and I would highly recommend this to others.

"Delivers what it promises - no more no less"
Pleasant, quiet and comfortable 4 star hotel. The staff is VERY friendly. It is walking distance from the main attractions. The breakfast buffet is plentiful, however quite monotonous if you intend to stay at this hotel for several days. The WiFi is a bit weak in the rooms and if you intend to use the single elevator - bring a good book to read while you wait...

"From Suite to 6th Floor Closet"
Stayed here before, generally a good experience. This time booked a junior suite through Expedia, prepaid rate - Big Mistake. Our reserved room was over the main street, busy and noisy all day and night. Knowing this was a possibility, I wrote to the hotel months in advance asking if it was noisy, would we be able to keep the windows closed and have air conditioning (late April, early May stay). I was told not to worry, they would book us a quiet room, and if it was warm, they would have air conditioning. When we arrived the room was stifling, we opened the windows, way too noisy. At the desk, they told us the air conditioning was on and the room would cool. Nine PM, returned from dinner, room still stifling. Spent the night with windows open and earplugs, still too noisy to sleep. On Monday, the manager told us they do not start the AC until June; what I was told previously was "a mistake." We could be moved to a quieter room on the back side, but it would be smaller. Yes, it was tiny, but the one window could be opened without noise from the street. So we spent the next 6 nights there. This room cost about half as much as the junior suite we booked through Expedia but the hotel said we could not be refunded the difference because the booking was prepaid to Expedia. Lesson learned ...

"Excellent for a price"
You would find that a newly build 4-star hotel in Vienna is a way better but a lot more expensive too. If you want a big room in a hotel very close to the Center, clean and not old linens and towels, free wifi and breakfast, good service and all this for less than 100 US than you have a deal! One thing I didn't like - no kettle and no way to have tea/coffee in room

"Excellent location & hotel for the price!!"
District 4 is a great location. Close to the market and city center makes for a short walk or fairly cheap cab ride. Hotel staff was excellent in planning our sightseeing requests. I noticed many hotels charge for breakfast but it is included here and was excellent. The only reason I rated a 4 was for a very spotted stained carpet that needed attention. Would definitely stay there again!!!!

"Delivered what it advertised"
I got what I expected at the Johann Strauss--a basic hotel in an older building in a reasonably convenient neighborhood. The u-bahn is less than a block away. The staff was always pleasant and helpful to every patron. The first floor is barely above the sidewalk, so no open curtains. Plus there is a bright street light. Rooms on the corner get a lot of street noise. Further back less street noise, but no wifi. Wifi in bar slow. They do have computer with printer for boarding passes. The a/c is OK for usual temps in Vienna. Bed was OK. English language TV channels. Sufficient electrical outlets. Frig. Bath was fine, just noisy drain. Breakfast buffet extensive.

This is a fine hotel near the center of Vienna and within walking distance of many attractions. The front desk staff are warm and helpful and the breakfast buffet is one of best that I have experienced anywhere in Austria. My only reservation with the hotel was the quality of the matress. There were twin beds in the room. I tried using both of them and each one stressed my back.

"Worderful charm and comfort"
We enjoyed the charm and comfort of this hotel. The Breakfast was awsome! The hotel is within walking distance to many resturants and the big outdoor market. The days were cloudy, so we could not get our directional bearing from the Sun to guide us back to the Hotel. The streets are very confusing, so I recomend using a Taxi to return to the Hotel. We also recomend the Weider Brau resturant for Dinner.

Super friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful staff. Excellent room size, accomodations for our family of 3 (one child 5 years). Breakfast substantial and tastey. Great location even though the metro across the street was under reconstruction for expansion it was an easy walk to city center and sites (even with a stroller). If the metro was open, wow, what a great location. Hotel room has lovely high ceilings and Klimt pictures and decor. We left at 5:30 am for the airport missing breakfast which starts at 6:30 am. The staff packed us sandwiches to go and fruit-on their own and no charge. How nice was that!!! Highly recommend especially for families.

"A stupid explanation"
During check-out a girl at the reception refused to issue receipt or any other document certifying the payment of my accommodation because supposedly I booked a room through Expedia. My argument that I am a user of Hotels.com and this situation smells of incompetence lead to any results. She promised that the chief of staff will contact with me. But until now there is no information from the hotel???!!!!

I've stayed at the hotel multiple times a few years ago and as soon as I knew I was going back to Vienna, this was the first hotel I looked for. It's an old hotel, but has loads of character, is clean, in good condition, and the staff are very friendly. It's also conveniently located close to the metro. And you get to listen to a Viennese Waltz over breakfast! :)

I was traveling alone on this trip and couldn't have received a better welcome at the hotel. The woman who greeted me, Marta, was extremely helpful and welcoming. I was very impressed as I travel a lot. The breakfast was amazing and nothing usually gets me up before 9.30. All the food was very fresh. I came back at 4.15am after going out on the Saturday night and somebody was on the desk. I highly recommend this hotel. It made my stay in Vienna more enjoyable. Thank you!

The hotel's location was great--right outside the UBahn station. And the breakfast they provided in the price was a pretty nice spread. The elevator was quite slow and small. We were on the 6th floor with a view of the building across the street. The bathroom had an odd setup--was split into 2 rooms-- a toilet room (no sink) and around the corner, the sink, bidet, and tub/shower. The hotel itself was fine but nothing spectacular. I give it a 3 star rating--not a 4-star hotel, but the price is right for a decent place to stay with a great location for public transport.

"We would definitely stay here again"
Having spent a fair time reviewing possible hotels to book for our stay in Vienna I kept coming back to this one - but was concerned that there were a few online reviews that are quite negative. However we decided that we would make our booking and are delighted that we did. In our opinion, the hotel proved to be simply superb value, very comfortable, very clean and very friendly. A real find! The staff are all helpful, speaking English and offering advice and assistance when requested. They seem to take a real pleasure in doing their job. The rooms we had were clean, spacious, well-furnished and comfortable, with a good sized ensuite bathroom. Free internet access is provided. The breakfast, included in the room price, was extremely good quality, lots of choice including eggs, bacon and sausages, plus a wide-ranging cold buffet. There is also a comfortable bar area where as well as getting a drink after a day out, they serve coffee etc. The location of the hotel is also another plus, being very close to Taubstummengasse U-bahn station which gets you in and out of the centre of Vienna very quickly. (However you don’t hear the underground trains at all.) Connection with the airport is also cheaply and easily done using the CAT rail-link service from the airport arrivals area to Landstrasse-Mitte station where you get the U-bahn to the hotel Another bonus is the nearby restaurant in the side street around the corner from the hotel entrance, for evening meals.

Clean, wi-fi available in the rooms, and the breakfast buffet is delicious! The staff is very helpful, too - one morning, we had to leave early for a tour and would have missed breakfast, but the staff was kind enough to pack a huge breakfast for us to go! Would definitely stay there again in the future.

The single elevator is so slow and small, limited 5 person/450 kg. Would have trouble getting baggage down during check out rush. May also pose problem for wheel chairs. The 19th century style one key per room with heavy weight to leave at front desk when going out, once looked from inside, no one can get in during emergency except breaking down the door. The computer desk chair is a clumsy lounge chair, not office chair with casters and height adjustment. The phone pad has no English, unable to find which one is for front desk, house keeper, maintenance or kitchen (there is no room service anyway). I have tried all keys at 11 pm to order a wake up call and none was answered. The air conditioning is a plus for hotels in this price range.
