Hotel Austria is located in a side street in the heart of old Vienna. It is a beautiful hotel that provides great warmth as you step into it. There is a full buffet breakfast each morning, a great way to start a day of exploring. It's location is perfect with many key sites within walking distance. The staff are very helpful as well.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Austria Vienna
We spent five nights in this hotel and had a wonderful time. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous and at no time did we encounter anything close to rudeness (as was mentioned in a previous review!). Breakfasts were excellent and kept us going without the need for lunch. Our only complaint would have to be the bed which was very hard. Other than that, we had a fantastic time and would most definitely stay at this hotel again.
Good location except for loud bar next door.
It had a good location, very near to Stephansdom and transportation to/from the airport and train. Although, bar next door is loud at night and attracts young teens lounging in the alley and talk very loudly. The alleyway echos all noises. Staff was friendly and very helpful as far as tourist hot spots. Breakfast was good. Shower is a bit small, bathtub very long though. Beds are a bit short for guys over 6'5.
Great little hotel in the heart of Vienna
We recently (June) spent 3 delightful days in Vienna and enjoyed our stay at Hotel Vienna. We loved the convenience of being able to walk to all the main attractions as well as the accessibility of the U-bahn nearby.
The staff was very helpful, the room was clean and quiet. We stayed on the 3rd floor, which is the non-smoking floor and I would highly recommend you put this in your request when booking, should you be a non-smoker.
The hotel is not part of the Airport bus route, but the hotel will send a driver to pick you up for $35 Euros. If you have lots of luggage, book the driver! Should you come by rental car, find out in advance were you can park. The Hotel does not have parking and it will be a test of your driving skills to back up to the Hotel entrance for unloading!
We most definitely would stay at Hotel Vienna again.
Incredibly quiet, friendly, and clean hotel...
This hotel was everything we had been looking for. It was absolutely silent day and night and our room was quite big and spotless. We requested a top floor room (to avoid noise) which was ready for us when we arrived. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was great. The hotel is very central but tucked into a quiet side street. It is also near some wonderful, authentically Austrian restaurants. We are generally very picky about where we stay, and this was well worth the slightly higher cost.
Beware highly flammable reception staff....
We stayed at the Hotel Austria from 7th-12th April, the location is wonderful, buffet breakfast was great and the restaurant staff were very friendly. The room was very plain but clean, the walls are paper thin though! There is a lot of carpet so if you are asthmatic I imagine it would be a nighmare to stay there!
Maybe when we visited all the friendly staff they mention in the brochure were elsewhere on holidays.... nothing prepared us for the extremely rude Natalie behind the receiption desk, all I will say is she is highly flammable, and in my opinion should not be dealing with the public in any way shape or form. On our first day following a query about a restaurant in the area that would cater for my special diet, I was greeted with a lot of shoulder shrugging and tutting, in all our travels I have never come across anyone as rude and unhelpful she definately needs a career change. Vienna is a wonderful city and I plan to go back later on this year, however not to this hotel.
Hotel Austria was all we expected and more. Travelling with my mother, I had reserved a twin room, and for no extra cost we were given a suite so she had her own bedroom, tv, minibar. The room was simply decorated, but large enough and modern. The hotel was always very quiet all all hours. The complimentary breakfast buffet was enjoyable, typical Austrian food - rolls, bread, jam, cold cuts, cheese, fruit. On Sunday, there was brioche and coffee cake. The location of the hotel was ideal, just a few blocks from Stephansdom and wonderful restaurants of every variety, yet completely quiet. Considering all the qualities of this hotel, it is a very good deal for the price. I would absolutely stay here again.
We were happy with the hotel overall. It's very close to the "bermuda triangle" where all the bars are, lots of restaurants. Because the hotel is off the main street, we slept like babies. Rooms are clean and breakfast is wonderful. Definitely worth the $ if you're not paying for more than $130 a night. ohh and there's supermarket right across on the main street, that's great if you want to get bottles of water or whatever...
A Wonderful little hotel.
My wife and I stayed at Hotel Austria for two weeks between a couple of road trips. The rooms were clean, the hotel has a wonderful location and the staff was unfailingly friendly and courteous. For $85 per night for two people with breakfast the hotel has to be the best buy stay for Vienna. It is on a quiet steet off of Fleischmarket and convenient to the Stephansdom, the U-bahn and to Trams around the Ring. Many good and reasonably priced restaurants are nearby. The hotel was quiet (except for the French couple with the open windows). We suggest asking for a fourth floor room which we found slightly larger. The staff even got us great tickets to a sold out performance at the Riding School. We are sold on Hotel Austria and will be back.
Great staff, good value
Somewhat difficult to find but well worth the effort. This hotel is old but well maintained and spotlessly clean. It's located near the historic center of the city and an easy walk to most of the major sights. The staff of this small family run hotel really make the difference and all of them seem to really enjoy making their guests happy. With very little or no advance notice, the concierge has always been able to get us good tickets to events including some sold-out concerts. Nearby are several very good and moderately priced restaurants.

Good Morning, It is almost 6am here on Friday the 6th of Dec. I arrived in Vienna yesterday afternoon to a cool 5 degrees, no snow though :( It is beautiful here. All the trees are stripped bare, and everyone is rugged up to the nines. My down jacket will fit in well mum :) I have a lovely room in the middle of the city centre, which …
250km return, by train! AM - Went downstairs to our favourite Budapest patisserie/bakery for breakfast; orange juice, pastries & coffee. Got back to our room & there was Lilla, she came home early as she didn't like the music and thought she was too old for the concert! (we think she is around 25-27) Said goodbye, she was very nice, and we …
... front desk. Anyway. Last night in Vienna was the last night for some of those on the tour so we gave them a suitably rowdy send off at the hostel bar last night. Needless to say I was feeling it this morning, which may explain the sleep walking. We did a brief walking tour of Vienna but after a few hours of wandering I tapped out, went back to the hostel and had a blissful two hours of sleep before heading up to ...
... By the way, the conclusion to the emergency blog was that on the second night we booked a hotel to stay in. When we arrived we got a free upgrade to the premium suites on the top floor, the floor where you get two toilets, fluffy robes and slippers in a massive room. Our luck had definitely turned.
After two nights, we flew to Prague in the Czech Republic. If Amsterdam is about bikes, Prague is about beer. Look it up on Wikipedia, the Czechs drink 144L of beer ...
... mind-meltingly cold, the freezing winds and snow biting into our very souls and however tight we pull our scarves and hats, or clasp our hands under our armpits for warmth, there’s no escaping the deep freeze. I’ve got five layers on and am still shivering. So when she thanks us all for being part of her group today, the words are barely out of her mouth before we’re heading for the nearest coffeeshop as fast as my crippled toe can carry us.
