"visiting Univ of Vienna"
For 1 person, this was a good hotel stay. Good solid free breakfast. Good wifi. Good air conditioning during warm days of summer. Room was small but no complaints since it was only for 1 person. Staff was cordial and helpful. Only 1 block from University of Vienna.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine hotel in a slightly shabby building"
It's a lovely place to stay, with plenty to do nearby, and with easy access to the Ring and to the Innere Stadt. It's in a building that seems a bit run-down at first, but the hotel itself is immaculate, well-furnished, and staffed by friendly and helpful people. Note that you will need to arrange with the hotel staff ahead of time if you plan to arrive […] quite early or late; the hotel reception does not do 24-hour service. All in all, I was delighted with this hotel, and would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
L^3 = location location location. Bests location to visit Vienna on a budget. Breakfast is poor- skip it and walk outside to any of the numerous eateries or cafes nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty well to stay if price is good"
Location perfect - walking distance to everything Hotel is located on the third floor of the regular apt building. I believe we'd had troubles to find it if not taxi. Cost from railway station to hotel is 17 euros. Rooms are good size, bathroom needs renovation, beds are comfortable. Breakfast is good with choices of meats and cheeses.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful old building and very friendly staff"
My wife and I had a layover in Vienna and stayed here for the night. It was wonderful. Location was great and staff was extremely friendly. I sent them an email letting them know I would have to check in late and they were there waiting for us. The room was very nice and very clean. I loved the old building and the character. The breakfast in the morning […] was very nice. It has 3 types of meat, 3 types of bread plus bagels and rolls, it had boiled eggs, 2 types of cereal, 3 different types of cheese, milk, juice, water, and coffee. We would definately stay here again. Loved our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is what you would expect for a pension. The front desk was very helpful, and the location could not be better for exploring downtown Vienna.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, rather ancient style reception"
Stay was good. It was a fabulous old styled buiding! The room size was very big. Great location. Breakfast reasonably OK, but the staff spke no English. No facilities of toasting bread, fruit choices limited: only one variety of a rather poor quality apple! The reception was very ancient styled! Not good for late check-inGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Old hotel but clean enough, breakfast included, good location and it was cheap:-) staff are very friendly !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"reasonably priced and located"
This is a pension rather than a hotel, so the facilities are much more limited. Room and location were nothing special although I have no complaints. The breakfast room was very plain as was the breakfast. The service was very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Topp beliggenhet og god service"
Sentralt og samtidig veldig rolig. God service, men hotellet hadde ikke mottatt melding fra Hotels.com om at vi skulle komme, men ordnet fort opp slik at vi fikk rom og heldigvis hadde de ledig.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
家族旅行で1泊。駅から5分でウイーン中心部へのアクセスも悪くないです。建物はニカラグア大使館と同じで外見は立派だが、中は古めかしい感じ。部屋も古い感じだがコストパフォーマンスとしては良いと思います。アメニティはLAX。スタッフもとても親切で朝食も悪くなかったです。Wifiも快適でした。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Charmig pension och mycket vänlig personal. Mitt rum låg dock precis brevid korridorsdörren och eftersom den var alltid låst så hördes det mycket när folk öppnade den. Många gånger trodde jag det var mitt rums dörr som någon försökte öppna. Men allat annat var perfekt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location & cozy room & kind staff"
The hotel locates at one of the best site in Vienna. (Close from two metro station and tram station neighboring Votiv church. The room is well conditioned and neat even though the building is very old. I didn't expect that I could have good breakfast with the competitive rate, however it was really good.

"Kaikin puolin mainio hotelli"
Keskeinen paikka, mutta sen verran sivussa suuremmilta kaduilta ettei automelua kuulunut. Todella ystävällinen isäntä ja isot huoneet leveillä sängyillä. Ajankohta oli rauhallinen, ei kuulunut häiriöitä mistään. Aamiainen oikein hyvä. Hotelli oli siisti, joskin kulunut.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"God beliggenhed, god pris, godt værelse"
Hotellet ligger lidt akavet i en ældre bygning, men beliggenheden er i top med 5 til 10 minutters gang til de væsentlige områder i Wien. Værelset var kæmpestort og meget veludstyret. Et fund til prisen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Zentral aber etwas verstäubt"
Die Lage ist sehr gut. Die Pension, das Zimmer und das Badezimmer sind aber etwas veraltet. Eine Renovation wäre nötig. Wir hatten auch 2 Tage kein warmes Wasser.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super nett und total zentral *****"
Trotz der tropischen Hitze hatten wir 4 tolle Tage in Wien. Das Hotel liegt direkt am Rathaus - so konnten wir mit der Bim schnell alle wichtigen Punkte erreichen. Von dem sehr freundlichen Portier erhielten wir einige "Insider-Tips" wodurch wir bequem eine super interessante "zu Fuss" Tour machen konnten ohne alle Bahnstationen anzufahren. Frühstück […] war normal - nicht schlecht, aber auch nicht herausragend. Wir kommen im Winter definitv wieder in dieses Hotel, denn dann ist der Weihnachtsmarkt am Rathaus ja gleich um die Ecke...... P.S.: nicht vom Hausflur / Treppenhaus abschrecken lassen ;-) Lars & Claudia aus Hannover Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Location, location, location"
09/16/14 Judy L Allentown, Pennsylvania
Within a few minutes you can walk from this hotel to most of the attractions in town. And it is 2 blocks away from subway and tram connections to take you to other attractions or to airport. It is in an old building with an old elevator. Of the two rooms we saw, one was nice ,one was VERY nice. The beds are comfortable, breakfast is satisfactory, staff is nice. I would come back here
"Nice place with good value for money"

Good location near Rathaus. We had a family vacation and the kids enjoyed the spacious room and free WiFi. The service is good, the rooms are clean, nice breakfast and good hospitality. Very good value for money.
"Exactly what one would expect "
I stayed here when I had to make rushed plans when travelling to Vienna. For a pension, it is.exactly what one pays for. It is neither too fancy or too shabby. It is just right. The room that I had stayed in was clean albeit small. The bathroom was clean and modern. It was a little hard to find. As I walked from the subway to Ebendorfestrasse with my bags I didn't have trouble finding the street, I just had trouble finding the number. I read that it might be hard to find so I made sure to memorize the picture of the entrance in my head. Still it was hard to find. That shouldnt dissuade anyone from staying here because the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a little jarring when entering because the building is quiet and seemingly empty. But a lot of Vienna is like that in my opinion. Rest assured that the hotel is on the 3rd floor. The breakfast was simple but filling and kept me going until lunch. If you are on a budget or.do n it went to spend too much or simply need quick reservations for a room in the rathaus district then this is a great safe place.

Was shocked going in at first, its kind of a building within a building. The place smelled old and dusty and the elevator looked run-down. However the room is comfortable and spacious and the location is not bad- within walking distance of the city center.
"Convenient and clean"
08/14/14 EllBel Northeast US
We were a group of 6 (rented 3 rooms), staying at the Pension for 4 nights. The location is very convenient for access to the metro, around the corner from the University, and steps away from City Hall Square. All the rooms were air-conditioned, which was a HUGE plus, as the temps were in the high 80s during our stay. Of the three rooms, one had a profoundly small bathroom -- barely enough space for one person, and the other had a notably small room -- barely enough space to put down two suitcases. Our room was a "deluxe", and it was both comfortable and spacious. WiFi was intermittent, at best. We had to ask for additional pillows and towels (each person got just one of each), and those were delivered. The TVs in two of the rooms were defective, and replacements were delivered. The rooms were clean and neat, but def. old (old carpeting, old paint, just overall worn and used -- but again, clean!). If you care about aesthetics, you may not be happy (some of our fellow travelers were upset about the look and feel of the residence). But, if you're looking for a convenient location, good amenities (including AC!!!), a responsible and responsive owner, a decent daily breakfast (hard-boiled eggs, yogurts, cold cuts, rolls, tea, coffee, and breads/spreads), and a comfortable bed, this is def. recommended.
"Great location for a trip to Vienna"
07/01/14 Chris B Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
The Pension is ideally located for a city visit. Very close to the Rathaus and Parliament and many of the other sights of Vienna. Very friendly staff, and while rooms are not luxurious, they were perfect for us. We also had the good fortune to have the only room with a balcony (#126); the other room for our party of 4 was facing a dark alley. The rooms are quiet and well equipped; comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, small fridge, air conditioning; free Internet (although sometime a bit spotty) was a bonus. While some reviewers have mentioned tired furnishings, we didn't find them too bad at all. It's all part of the charm of this place :) Breakfast is very good. Well stocked buffet of cereal, cold cuts, jams etc. - no issues there. Parking - like anywhere else in Vienna - can be an issue, but we found a spot right outside the hotel. Ask for the day pass (costs 15 Euros) and use the excellent subway/tram system to get around (we bought a 72 hour pass for 15 Euros and it was more than worth it). The nearest subway is right near the Rathaus and from there, it's easy to get around. Overall - I can definitely recommend the Pension Residenz for budget friendly accommodation in the heart of this beautiful city... Don't expect 4-stars, though...
"Good base in Vienna"
05/24/14 Rmlind Maryland
The Residenz was just what we needed, and the owner was exceptionally friendly and full of information. The location is in a big old building, very well tended inside and very quiet. If you stay here, prepare ahead by bringing a good map. It's near the Schottentor transit hub, and we had some trouble heading in the right direction. We found no local neighborhood map in the U-Bahn station, nor were the people at the transit info office helpful.
"Meeting of expectations"
We came to the hotel according trip advisor reviews. The hotel is hardly 2 stars hotel. It is locate on the edge of the inner city. It is a part of a large old building that should have been renewed 30 years ago. Our room was large and clean. The bathroom was small and a beat old. The alls and the furniture new some better days. Steal it is good value to your money in a city like Vienna. The stuff was very nice and helpful. It is a good place if you know what to expect. If you want more you will have to pay more.
"Nice location, sad breakfast"
04/11/14 Elisabetta A Brescia, Italy
Convenient position. Corner room, high floor, old furniture and small bathroom, but in excellent condition and very clean and well kept. Sound-proof windows. Exceptionally kind staff. Good breakfast, but the place needs improvements: please put place-mats on the tables (even cheap, paper ones!), add some flowers and have some music on! The room has almost no natural light and it may be claustrophobic without some extra effort ...
"A gem - Perfect value for money"
01/31/14 Louise D Copenhagen, Denmark
Stayed at Pension Residenz for two nights in january, and really enjoyed our stay. Staff was friendly and helpfull and rooms were spacious and clean. Yes the decor is a bit old fashioned, the lift is small and the stairs many, but that is all part of the charm. Silk tapestrys and crystal chandeliers, really gets you in the mood of exploring the city and historic buildings of Vienna. Breakfast is two floors down and very basic, however keeping in mind the price, as good as it gets. Location as well is perfect within the inner city, near the "rathaus" and several connections via tram and underground. Would definately stay here again on another visit to the beautifull city of Vienna!
