... they invited me out with them. Two girls from Canada (Cortney and Madeline), one English girl (Kat) and I ended up at this very beautiful amusement park! The rides looked so thrilling, I would have gone on all of them if I had the time. We each had a beer at the beer garden located inside the amusement park and had wonderful conversations full of laughter. My night ended later than I expected but it was definitely worth ...
... the neighbourhood and stumbled across the Jesuitkirche which may be one of the most beautiful ( and unusual) churches we have seen on this trip. The outside is plain and would not lead you to believe that the interior is worth the walk up the steps. But inside, it is extremely ornate, in the Baroque style with paintings on the ceilings through the whole length of the church. There was lots of gold leaf but the most amazing feature was the ...
The boat stayed moored in Vienna for the whole day and we had a choice of tours. As I had been to Vienna a couple of times before (many years ago) I chose to join an excursion to Bratislava, the capital of nearby Slovakia. It took about an hour to drive there. The driver took the back road rather than the motorway so that we could see villages and farms. Our first stop was the Bratislava castle, with views across the city. We then drove back down to the old part of the central ...
... Connelly book for one of Dean Koontz' Bad Thomas series. FYI: I can report after the fact that both are great books. Hey, while there's English language books on offer and I can make the time to read them, don't expect me to hold back.
That was it for Austria. I'm sure there will people who ask "so, what did you think of Vienna?" and if I'm entirely honest I don't really know how I'll answer them. "It was conveniently on my route," I suppose I could say. "and a fine place to ...
... about suddenly all fit together. It was awesome. We got lots of homework, and were done for the day.
I spent the rest of the day resting up, hoping I could feel better for tomorrow's trip to Slovakia. I've felt quite sick to my stomach, so I've just been investing in some amazing sorbets. Today's selection: elderberry sorbet - so delicious.
Took some naps, trying to rest, and then I woke up to my roommate staring at me. "Hi! I was bored so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Austria Trend Hotel Ananas Wien Vienna
I spent quite a bit of time at this property in June, as I was travelling with a choir who was placed here by their tour organizer. It seems to be popular with large groups on packaged tours, which can cause the lobby to be a bit noisy and chaotic. Plan on periods when tour busses will be loading and unloading passengers in the street outside. The elevators are somewhat narrow and the waits can be long if you happen to be coming or going when a large group is checking in or out. We found a secondary elevator near the restaurant and used it when things were busy. Very friendly multi-lingual staff. Rooms were small and spartan, but comfortable and clean. Bathrooms were very small with a stand-up shower stall, small sink, and a toilet. The air conditioning does not do a very good job of cooling the rooms on hot summer days, but the eindows do open wide to let the evening air in. The hotel is across the street from the Pilgramgasse station of the U-4 subway line.
The hotel is right across the street from the metro stop, which provides easy and fast access to anything within the city. It is only 15 minute metro ride away from one of the train stations and 10 minute ride into the heart of the city. The hotel was clean and spacious compared to other European hotel rooms. It had AC which was very nice during an extremely hot weekend in May (just remember to leave one of your key cards in the electricity slot while you're gone to have it cool the room down). The bathroom was clean and big, but the hairdryer looked and worked like a broken dustbuster. Our 1st room had water damage on the bathroom ceiling and the staff was very accomodating and nice to help us switch rooms late at night (11pm) in a 'fully' booked hotel. It took only a little convincing and complaining, but they were happy to have made us more comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful (yay to 5 different kinds of breads) and included in the reasonable price we paid. There were fruits, breads, cold cuts, cheeses, some cereal, milk, coffee and juice. Great to load up for budget travelers before a big day of sightseeing. One of the most comfortable hotels I have stayed in in Europe (budget traveler opinion).
Hotel is OK, but some problems.
#1: It's just across the street from the subway (metro). You can go anywhere from this subway stop. #2: Breakfast is OK, nothing great (lots of unusual items), but filling. #3: Do not roll over in your sleep on the remote control to the TV, or you will be charged for English/Pay Per View Movies that you did not watch!!! #4: Hot chocolate was charged to our room, which we did not order, nor did we consume. #5: Room was utilitarian at best, but there was plenty of hot water and the heater worked good. #6: Hotel Desk Personnel were adequate. If given a choice, I'd try some place new the second time around.
Good quality/price relation
There is nothing very special in Ananas Hotel, except the price. I was there at the negotiated price of 69 € for a single including breakfast, which I've seen is the tariff applied to most clients. For that price, the hotel is not bad at all - clean and reasonably comfortable, in front of a metro station and quite close to the centre.
Absolutely the WORST hotel I've ever stayed in. Trend Hotels gave this hotel a 4-star rating????? I had what was supposed to be a non-smoking room. There were cigarette burns in the carpet plus other things stuck in the carpet--the room smelled like someone had been smoking a cigar in it. The walls were dirty. The bathroom floor was filthy. The shower had leaked from the floor above so there were stains and mildew in the bathroom. The ceiling above the bed had a crack across the room and had started falling down. Worst of all there was blood on the walls near the door. I sent complaint letters to Trend Hotels and Globus tours and enclosed pictures I took of the deplorable state of the room. AVOID THIS HOTEL!!!!!! If you're interested in seeing some of the pictures I took of my room please send me an e-mail.
My wife and I just returned from a 4-day trip to Vienna, our first time there. We had a great time due not in short part to our accomodations at the Ananas Hotel. The location of the hotel is phenomenal, being literally 10 feet from the U-4 station, which made getting to anywhere in Vienna extraordinarily easy. The hotel had a generally attractive, young and friendly crowd (about 30-40% American tourists, the others from other parts of Europe or Asia) and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The bar was a lot of fun and usually did not close until after 2 am. The breakfast buffet was also good, with several meats, cheeses, fruit juices, coffee, rolls, breads, butter, jams, honey, eggs and dessert cakes. One annoying occurrence was an unexpected 50+ Euro charge when we were checking out because some of the TV channels were "pay" but were automatically billed if you watched them (there was no "activation" required on the part of the viewer).
