Hotel Atlantis Vienna

... but it was a nice relaxing trip back.
The bus tour brought us back to the Opern Haus and we spent a quiet evening eating wurst and walking by the Danube canal. We find ourselves so tired at the end of the day that tomorrow we are allowing for a late start hopefully following a restful sleep.
Best thing about Day Three: Library at Melk of course!
Worst thing: Obnoxious children on tours ( I know, I am old and crochety), people who bring obnoxious children on ...
... are still used for special functions today. I loved the exhibit.
Reina and I decided to treat ourselves, and stop by the restaurant in the palace. The same Imperial Bakery is still used today, and the famous apple strudel that was created here is still served today. So, I ordered a coffee, and apple strudel, just like the royal family had, with whipped cream. It was so delicious. The strudel had raisins, and a very rich taste. It was a really special stop.

So, European trains aren't living up to the ideal of punctual and efficient. Maybe we have to wait for the Swiss trains for that. We ended up about 65 minutes late into Vienna due to train problems. As we were just starting to move after stopping at Breclav (Czech border town), the lights dimmed and the brakes came on again, and I suspect our train had just tripped out the entire station/local area train electricity network. After watching every other train get pushed ...
... to build these huge places in the middle of no where - at one time 1889 monks now a mere 31 and are they living the life of luxury -- the interpretation centre and bldgs have just been refurbished (took 20yrs) and are beautiful and have a real 'modern' take on the message of the monastery very well done, I thought.
The community runs a private boys/girls school (day school) and the fees are only 85euros month -
the library is much like the one I visited in St Gallen ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Atlantis Vienna
It was unfortunate that there was a lot of building work going on next door to the Hotel when I stayed. But it looks as though most of the major construction should be finished in the next month or so. The Atlantis was a perfect base for a working trip to Vienna. It may not be in the main part of the City but it is so close to the U-Bahn and trams that it makes little difference.
Having read previous Trip Advisor traveller comments about the Atlantis, I was a little concerned about a couple of aspects of this hotel, the main one being it's location (both distance from the city centre and also the surroundings).
Basic good hotel, but maybe not for everyone
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a total of 6 mights in late June 2005 in room 301. I agree with the comments below. Just to summarize: decent breakfast, good sized rooms, bathroom OK - not great, rooms OK but not great, staff is GREAT, air conditioning in rooms is good, rooms nice and quiet even though there might be major construction across the street from the hotel. I think that some people may not want to stay so far away from the city center. Also bear in mind that there is some prostitution that takes place on the Gurtel road near the hotel at nights. This red light activity isn't a big deal and is easily avoided. If you can handle that, then it is OK to stay at this hotel, assuming that you get a good price. We paid 113 euros per night.
A colleague and I stayed in this hotel in November 2004 and found that, whilst the rooms were adequate and clean and the staff friendly, that the location let it down so much. As two young women, the area did not feel very safe and the volume of Erotic shops and 'Adult Centers' didn't help much. If you're visiting Vienna on business and have to get to the Vienna Centre (or if you EVER need an iron!!), don't stay here - it's a real trek, but I suppose it wouldn't be so bad for a holiday. This hotel really isn't too bad, it just wasn't that great.
I stayed here for one night in a triple room with two friends, in the first week of Febaruary. We were there for a concert in the Stadthalle venue and it was fantastic for this as it was only a short walk down the street. As mentioned in other reviews, the hotel is too far from the city centre, so don't stay here if you want to be in the centre of Vienna, but it is still ina nice area and fine for any concerts at the Stadthalle. The hotel itself was great, friendly staff at reception and nice decor. One plus point was the computer in the lobby with free internet!! Excellent to have this there. The room was great - it was more of a suite than a normal room. We had two twin beds in one room, and one sofa bed in the other, plus a hallway and huge bathroom. There were plenty of shops nearby and of course the big mall. There was also a number of restaurants and pubs. I would stay here again without any hesitation for any concerts in Vienna.
A group of four of us took advantage for the advertised special of $499 (plus tax, etc) for three nights which included a stay at this hotel.
I have no complaints other than I wish it was in city center. If it was in city center, then we would not have gotten this great deal. Vienna has a great U-bahn system and this hotel was one stop from Westbahnhoff (very convenient location) and a 2 minute walk.
The breakfast was decent: rolls, eggs, meats, cereal, juices, coffee and teas. The front desk was very helpful. The rooms were clean and a nice size.
It was a wonderful stay
We were there 2 weeks ago and I must say that we enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room that we stayed in was of reasonable size compared to the regular rooms in Europe. The hotel is located next to a mall and underground station, which makes traveling to major attractions convenient. We highly recommend the hotel!!
We stayed at the Atlantis. It is very convenient to the metro--one stop away from the Westbahnhof, and there is an indoor shopping mall in the next building. The mall had a grocery, electronics store, butcher shop, and about 20 other stores. The rooms were of reasonable size, had a tv, en suite facilities, and seemed pretty clean, but my room could have used a new coat of paint. They had a decent buffet breakfast included in the price. All in all it was okay, but nothing superlative.
