            The room was spacious, the Hotel located not far from the main tourist attractions, taking into account the price - this is very good deal for money paid.

            It can be noisy as the hotel is located at busy sreet with trams.

            Very convenient location. We never took public trasport during our one week trip (except a trip outside the city and airport). The service at the reception is excellent. Rooms are very big, can easily accomodate the third person on extra bed without any inconvenience or two children. For families this might be a very good value option. Huge bed as well. Yes, the hotel in general might need some modernisation, but it was not a problem given its other advantages. The lobby and restaurants looked a little bit deserted at nights but with so many cafes around this is something can expect.

            the noise!!!!! unbelievable to be just on top of the biggest street of vienna, impossible for a five stars hotel.

            Great location and very accomadating staff.Free mini bar was great also.

            We had booked a double room but when we arrived we were shown to a room with two single beds.we did complain and were sorted out with a double bed,a little hassle but worked out well.

            The room & bed was very comfortable & very spacious. The mini bar was supplied free of charge. The porters were very good & helpful. The location was great, very easy walk to all attractions.

            Cooperative and helpful staff. Staff was quick to respond to our complain about the ac which was not working properly, they offered us a better room with the same rate. The Junior suite which we stayed in was spacious an comfortable .It is a quiet hotel within 10 minutes walk from the city center.

            The hotel facilities are not within 5 stars standards. Breakfast Buffet has limited selection with average quality, the staff in the breakfast restaurant although were cooperative but they were not attentive to the quality of cleanliness. The ac in the rooms was not cold enough. The health clubs was poorly equipped. It is overpriced , it should be rated as a four star hotel.

            I stayed at the hotel several times and I enjoy all of the stays. The staff may show off a bit and have this ironical look in the eyes when talking to the guests but it gives the hotel a certain charm and is definitely amusing as everything is certainly decent and polite and is more like a game. Overall, this is an old high quality hotel perfectly located with a lovely atmosphere where they do their best to please the guests. Highly recommended!

            The room (on top floor) was very quiet and clean and spacious. The hotel was a short walk to the shopping and pedestrian area. The breakfast was excellent.

            The air conditioning didn't work even though it was turned on. I wouldn't stay on the top floor in extremely hot weather, although it is probably fine for most of the year.

            The hotel meets all the expectations - from location to cleanliness. An excellent experience.

            I asked for a quiet room, but when I arrived in what was a rather pleasant room, I found that the plumbing was quiet noisy. Upon requesting a change, I was immediately upgraded by a very accommodating staff.

            A very small fitness room.

            I spent a week-end with my daughter- the location was very good, near the University and subway, the rooms were big and clean, the minibar was complementary. I enjoyed my stay.

            The view from the balcony on 6th is brilliant

            The room service is extremely poor for a 5 star hotel. The pizza ordered seemed like a microwave pizza and the rest was not eatable...

            The location was great. Breakfast was also good.

            Staff could be more friendly as I don't think it is up to its 5 star standard. But they were nice enough.
