"Top-quality and charming"
Room was filled with fun touches -- modern fixtures, decorations, etc. Would have been useful to have a desk, but then again that would have detracted from the niceness of the space. Staff was consummately polite and helpful. Breakfast was great -- Vienna-style standards plus many tasty extras.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel was quaint and clean. The hotel staff was suburb, very helpful and friendly. Quality for the room cost was excellent. Close enough for walking to Opera House and other downtown tourist attractions. Fast and easy walk to the underground.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonable for the price"
Great location close to the subway and within five minutes Naschet Market, 15 minutes to cathedral. Nice breakfast buffet. Downsides, no one is at the front desk from noon to 5 pm. No elevator so be prepared to carry your bag up a flight of stairs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"well located once you know!"
This is an interesting hotel with strengths and weaknesses. Access is via a simple code which sometimes needed repetition (they are addressing this) and don't have staff available 24/7. The hotel is extremely well located just a few minutes from the Opera etc but it was not obvious on arrival by taxi where it was and I and others headed the wrong way […] on the nearby tram! I have mentioned this to staff as well.The hotel is quite small: my bedroom was spacious but bathroom was very cramped. Breakfast was excellent and overall it was very good value. I suspect good for couples but not families with children. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
exceeded our expectations. This is more like an upmarket B&B than a hotel. Took a taxi with family of 4 from airport for about €40 - very easy. Quad room was very comfortable even for the 2 teenagers 14 and 16. Amazing pressure in shower. Location was easy for trams and underground. Staff were always helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast was good- Did […] not book it thinking we might go to local cafes but it was easier. Overall very happy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really good stay"
I find people in Vienna generally very nice and friendly, and this is especially true at the Saint Shermin Hotel. The staff had been very nice and helpful, welcomed us with tea and cookies while we wait for the room to be ready. The rooms are spacious and modern, beds are really comfortable. Location is great as it is only a stone throw from the Naschmarkt […] and Karlsplatz metro. Town centre is walking distance, or you can easily travel around with their city bike which was great. We were given extra cookies and bottled water at our check-out, which was a very kind gesture. All in all a great experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was perfect. A great location - only 5 minutes walk from the hotel to vienna state opera house. The breakfast was great. The receptionist was very friendly. And the room was trendy, something to tell about. Recently refurbished. Instead of a desk phone, there was the mobile phone provided for use :) Modern, arty style. We didn't have any […] problems with the door code. Recommended. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable, cute and comfy"
We were very impressed by hotel Shermin. It was easy to find, close to transport and an easy walk into the city center. We stayed in a room for three people which was spacious, clean and lovely with modern decor and nice bathroom. There is good security into the reception area after hours and the staff were friendly, happy to help and very nice. The […] included buffet breakfast was great with lots of selection. We were pleasantly surprised for the price of the room. We would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Shermin was very comfortable -it is more like a B&B than a hotel. The desk is not staffed at all hours and the hotel is one floor of an apartment building. Having said that, it was very comfortable, staff were attentive, the hotel is in a great location and I enjoyed my stay. I would certainly stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Shermin, Vienna - is it right for you?"
Hotel Pension Shermin is a mixed bag. We stayed for 4 days and, if asked whether to recommend it or not, would say it depends on what you want from a budget hotel. It is just one floor within an apartment building, and runs mostly on an honesty basis, being staffed for part of the morning and part of the afternoon. Normally the person on reception also […] prepares and cleans up breakfasts in the tiny dining area, which can lead to bottlenecks and some variation in what is available for breakfast. Breakfast is entirely cold food, although one of the girls covering two breakfasts produced boiled eggs. The small size and long thin shape of the dining area means that not all guests can be accommodated at peak times. The room we occupied opened onto a dark inner courtyard, but had a ceiling fan to compensate for the lack of airconditioning. Opening the windows produced some ventilation at the cost of privacy and noise from other apartments. The furnishings were a bit tired and older, but functioned perfectly. These oddities apart, the hotel is within walking distance of almost all of central Vienna, including the Naschmarkt, so unless you are an avid explorer of the outskirts, a travel pass/city pass isn't really necessary, so take all of these into account (and the price).

"Ideal für eine Städtereise"
Das Hotel ist nett und modern eingerichtet. Die Ausstattung meines Zimmer war hervorragend: Eine gut bestückte Minibar, eine Klimaanlage (nicht genutzt, da Aufenthalt im Januar), ein moderner Flat TV und ein kostenloser Zugang zum Internet über das hoteleigene WLAN sind besonders zu erwähnen. Da das Hotel sehr nah am Zentrum liegt, eignet es sich besonders […] für eine Städtereise. Das einzige "Manko" war das etwas kleine Badezimmer.

Die Pension Shermin ist sehr gut gelegen, allerdings mit knapp 150 Euro ohne Frühstück etwas überteuert. Unser Zimmer war geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr sauber, aber ein wenig dunkel.

ホテルの設備、清潔さ等に問題はない。 ロケーションとしてはオペラ座から徒歩7分で非常に便利。夜遅くても歩いて帰れるし安全だった。 受付の人も愛想が良く、非常に親切であった。 しかし受付は平日5時から8時までしか空いていおらず、建物入り口から受付に行くまでの通路がわかりづらい。 宿泊までフロントとのメールのやり取りは必須であろう。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place ideal location"

We visited Vienna on night during August 2014. Saint Shermin was more than what we expected and made our stay in Vienna very unique. Its more a house than a hotel and you will feel the warmness in the rooms.

The best apartment I have ever been. The instructions were excellent, the apartment was clean and the furniture were of luxurious quality. The location was 5 min from the center of the old city. It is the first time that all of my family enjoyed a fine apartment for family of 4.
"Would always come back when I visit Vienna!!!"
08/23/14 Avi1110 Kfar Saba, Israel
When you travel around the world it is almost impossible to find the perfect place to stay. Luckily it happened to us in Vienna. Hotel Shermin is really the perfect b&b for the city and for a reasonable price that is worth every penny. It looks new all around, nicely decorated and the staff were amazing. The location is literally 5 minutes walk for the old town center. We never took a public transport and we travelled with a baby, we just didn't need to. Breakfast was 10 EUR per person but once again, it was worth it. Dining area is really special and the food was great. If you visit Vienna, this is the place to stay! Don't bother looking anywhere else :)

Don't let the outside scare you away. Upon arriving we thought we had made a terrible mistake. Security code to get in, construction on the 1st floor, plastic on the elevator. But once up on the 1st floor where the Hotel is located, it is home away from home. decorated very smartly, staff very friendly and breakfast is excellent and worth the 10 euros they charge. A great selection of breads, meats, cheese and of course made to order omelets. Rooms are large with good internet . Mini bar is well stocked and they even have incidentals if you have forgotten some things. A 10 min walk to the Opera House and maybe 15 to the Palace. A perfect location even in the summer when the prices are double just a few blocks away. Definitely a Hotel to consider and it will only get better. I would stay there again.
"What a perfect place in lovely Vienna!"
07/14/14 DirckZadeh Amsterdam, The Netherlands
What a fantastic place! We stayed 8 nights in July @ this lovely Bed&Breakfast located just a 5 minute walk from the town center. This B&B has lovely and originally decorated and very clean rooms. But also very friendly, helpful staff and good breakfast served in a very stylish room. I would definitely stay here again!
"Comforts of home...."
07/13/14 Mike J Saint Louis, Missouri
As much as I love traveling, the one thing that can get to me is not having the comforts of home when I hit the road. That being said, I've never stayed in a hotel that made me feel as much at home as the Hotel Saint Shermin did. From the spacious room to the honesty bar in the lobby there were times where it felt like we were staying with a good friend rather than a hotel. There are only 10 rooms in the Saint Shermin so it was always quite, and the wonderful breakfast that they serve each morning had a very personalized feel. We stayed in room 18 which is at the end of the hall and overlooks the courtyard of the restaurant below, it was a beautiful view and we never ran into any issues with street noise. The room was extremely comfortable with ample seating. As others have mentioned the bathroom was small but still functional. Décor We walked all over Vienna and never seemed too far away from the hotel, it was a perfect location very close to the market and Museum Quarter. We took the train in from Munich and out to Prague so the quick 5 minute walk to the Karlsplatz station was also perfect. The only room for improvement I saw was the stairwell that you enter the hotel through. It is shared with the building and was a little run down. It in no way reflects the actual hotel so don't let the first impression get you down! If you want a large hotel with all the typical amenities (gym, pool etc) than this place isn't for you, but if you want to stay in a hotel with a bed and breakfast feel in a great location than look no further. Overall, the Saint Shermin made our 3 day stay in Vienna that much better and we will absolutely return during our next visit to the city. Tip: If you need to do laundry while you are in town there is a dry cleaner located right next door. We dropped off a number of clothes that we had dry cleaned/washed and received them back the next day at an affordable price.
"Friendly staffs and stylish hotel!"

We stayed in Hotel Shermin from 1st July to 3rd July 2014. The staffs were really friendly and went all out to serve their customers. The rooms were very stylish and we love the cleanliness and design of the room. The location of the hotel is a 5 minutes walk from Karlsplatz U-bahn.
"Excellent caring service in a very convenient location."
07/12/14 irispady South Australia
I have terminal cancer so I need to be comfortable, to be close to transport and for things to go smoothly. Initially, things didn't go well as we were sent to the wrong address, with inadequate instructions. Travelling exhausts me and the added hassle was not appreciated. However, a couple of phone calls and a cab trip later and we were at the correct address. The cab fare was refunded and the staff went out of their way to make up for the mistake. The Shermin is well located, within walking distance to most sights for a fit and active person, and a short walk to public transport for the rest of us. The rooms are a little small but spotlessly clean and reasonably well appointed. The bed was oh so comfortable. The staff, however, make the Shermin! They are efficient, extremely courteous and friendly. I had a couple of "off" days and they went out of their way to ensure that I was comfortable. You might find a better room but you won't beat the service. PS Have the scrambled eggs with herbs for breakfast. You won't be disappointed.
"Small friendly pension in great location"
07/08/14 funtyone London, United Kingdom
If you are looking for a hotel that offers all the usual hotel facilities and want staff on hand all the time, this place is not for you. But, if what you want is a small, friendly pension, run by lovely staff and very close to the centre of town then this is perfect. It was a little difficult to find initially and the entrance on the ground floor is a little off-putting but as soon as you get up to the pension on the first floor it is lovely. It's cosy, very clean and well appointed. Our room was small but totally sufficient for our needs with incredibly comfortable beds and pillows. I was a bit nervous when we arrived that the bar next door had very loud music but in fact could hardly hear a thing in the room and it didn't go on late so didn't affect sleep at all. One couple we spoke with said it was playing classical music one evening and it added to their enjoyment of the stay. The bathroom was small but well stocked, very clean and with a fantastic shower. Breakfast was plentiful - bit of a squash in the small dining room - but again just served to reinforce the local "boutique" feel of this little pension. The staff were lovely, very friendly and could not have been more helpful. True, they aren't around all the time but simple touches like the coffee and biscuits left out for you to help yourself to and the honesty bar in reception just underline the nice and slightly homely feel to this place. And finally, location. Just outside the Ringstrasse but everything is walkable or a simple tram/train ride away. It could not be easier. Top marks from me and it added to making a really lovely weekend in Vienna when staying in a large impersonal hotel would have simply served a purpose but contributed nothing.
"A sweet hotel very close to the city center"
07/07/14 Greunlis Brno, Czech Republic
We were very pleasantly surprised what great a hotel is hiding inside the old building. The room we had was very nice, although the window faced inside the building and didn't provide much light. Contrary to the reviews, we didn't have any problem with the stuff being there only some of the time and you can always call them. The stuff was always very pleasant. The breakfast was a very interesting experience - the dining room is excellently decorated and it's great to share your morning with other people. I can only recommend this hotel if you're planning to stay in Vienna.
