"A nice surprise..."
Really nice hotel. Quiet, nice sized room, nice area. Good price. Only complaint would be that the carpet needs cleaned.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good place to stay"
This hotel is very clean and spacious. I received courteous customer service. It is conveniently located within walking distance to a number of attractions including downtown. Breakfast was delicious with a variety of options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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 ... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"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 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff are very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed one hour and decided not to stay due to lack of cleanliness, no outlets, pictures online misrepresented the size, decor and condition of room. It was very small, dirty, chipped paint and musty smell. The conceirge was professional and helpful in my checking out and getting a refund.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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.

"Great Location In Vienna"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Easy access to metro & must see sights"
Very satisified with hotel stay. We loved the breakfast. They even prepared us a box breakfast (yest, it was good) on the day we had a very early excursion to catch and could not make the normal eating time. Very pleasurable staff and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great breakfast. A non-smoking hotel but one guest was surely smoking, not the hotels fault and did not rise to a level of irritation.Nice place, helpful and friendly staff, near subway and opera.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our family loved, loved Hotel Johann Strauss!"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay in Vienna"
The good: Great location. Very close to the U1 U-bahn (but it was closed at the time we were there) and train/bus (3 stops to the State Opera House). Large room with A/C and good breakfast. The not so good: This is probably true of all the hotels in the area - the narrow streets and 5 to 6 story buildings tend to act as canyons and echo street noise […] up to the room. Having A/C so you can keep the windows closed helped. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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???!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A lovely hotel with lots of character"
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.

"Good location & value for money"
The hotel was well located right by an underground station. The rooms were large & the breakfast selection was extensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at Johann Straus for a week. The hotel is in a good location. 10-15 min. Walk to St. stephanplatz and a min. Walk to the nearest tube station. The staff were friendly and breakfast was ver good. During our entire stay, the bed sheets were changed once and the duvet covers and pillowcases not at all! Despite this the rooms were clean and c […] omfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was excellent in every way, close to metro station, area nice, spacious room and clean. Breakfast was one of the best. We paid similar amount for hotels in Paris, Rome and they were only half as good. Highly recommended for this budget range.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Looked after from start to finish"
What a great hotel - we where looked after by Monica on reception on arrival and the rest of the reception team for the rest of out weekend stay. Room was lovely,clean and spacious. breakfast was hearty and set you up for the day. We would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel near to the state opera house"
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!

"Great hotel in an excellent location"
It was the third time this year that I stayed at the Johann Strauss and, as usual, I was very happy with the stay. My room was warm, clean and comfortable; the breakfast excellent. The hotel has a unique atmosphere, which is much owed to its friendly and helpful international staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was very close to Taubstummengasse underground station and a meeting I had to attend the following day.Genuine Expedia guest review
easy access to surrounding area by the subway and trainsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.

"Great location, great service!"
Hotel was great! The area was very safe, steps to the UBahn station, and about a 10 minute walk to the city centre! The hotel was clean and quiet. Looks old-fashioned, but updated. 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!

"An ideal hotel to explore from."
A well placed hotel with large rooms and a convenient u-bahn close by. Would recommend airport transfer by s-bahn and u-bahn for under 5 euros . Plenty of choice for breakfast and rooms cleaned daily. Within walking distance of the main station and Karlsplatz.Genuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall satisfactory. Some good, some bad."
A free breakfast buffet was included with the hotel. That was the best part. The hotel is older architecture and hasn't been renovated for a while. Also, they were a bit skimpy on the bedding provided. Overall it was a decent hotel and it was in a pretty good location.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good all-round gfriendly hotel in a great location"
The hotel is simple and unostentatious. My room was large with a huge bed (two beds pushed together), wooden floor, adequate storage (although perhaps lacking sufficient hangars) and a room safe. Staff were unfailingly helpful, spoke good English. Breakfast wasself service but superb - excellent selection of usual continental cold meats and cheeses […] as well as scrambled eggs, bacon and frankfurters. Perhaps the best thing was the location; two minutes from the u-bahn and one stop from the centre of Vienna with its wealth of galleries, palaces and eateries. I would certainly use the Johann Strauss again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel I've stayed in in Vienna"
I had planned to stay for one night and stayed for two because of the snow storms in Europe on the 12th & 13th of March. The hotel is lovely with traditionally large Viennese rooms.

I stayed in the Johann Strauss Hotel for a conference at The Vienna University of Technology so it was a perfect location.

"Can't fault this place - ticks all the boxes"
Lovely little room on the top floor over looking the roofs of Vienna, a stone's throw from all the sights but away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Had everything I could have wanted and an iron was provided when I asked at reception.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Splendid Winter Break"
First time in Vienna so "pot luck" as far as choosing a hotel was concerned. Couldn't have made a better choice really. Located within 5 minutes of the main sight seeing/shopping area and 1 minute away from public transport (took advantage of a 3 day pass. Great value and sold at the hotel itself). Staff all spoke/understood English and were very helpful […] and friendly. Breakfast buffet was excellent and open whilst a convenient 10:30. Room large, clean and bed comfortable. Superb stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
