Travel Blogs from Vienna

A concert with Strauss and Mozart

A travel blog entry by nana-jan

Took a walk around our hotel area in the morning - what lovely buildings, shops, churches and cafes we found. When we return to Vienna we will stay at this hotel again as it was easy to get to most things from here. Had a beer in the cafe which was full of smoke. Beer was ordinary but the company was good. Spent a lot of time trying to miss the …

Walked the streets & tasted the local fare

A travel blog entry by nana-jan


We decided to walk around the city to see what we could see. What a beautiful city. It is such a change after China. The noise level was quite, the streets not crowded, the people stylish, the shops beautiful. Had the most wonderful strudel at the palace - too much cream on the hot chocolate [if you can have to much]. Afternoon tea was so filling …

"Oh, Vienna!"

A travel blog entry by eaglesflight


... on business with his dad and visited here. This world city of approx 1.7 million people is safe, clean and full of culture and beauty. The Austrians are typically German in their approach to customer service though - very efficient, but with little emotion thrown in. We have found people to be helpful and polite, both in shops and the general public on the street - people will give up seats ...

Where Is My Suitcase?!

A travel blog entry by tiffanyrose-14

I landed in Vienna after a really easy flight. I pre-wrote blog entries during this flight and read a little more of my latest Ted Dekkar book during the flight once I realized I wasn't going to be sleeping. The sun was shining directly in the window by and the man sitting beside me refused to let me shut it.
Once I got to Vienna, I went through their version of "customs." The lady was quite rude about the whole process, but I made it through. I made my way down ...

We had a leisurely morning as we continued to sail up the Danube towards Vienna. It was a really cold morning so we sat in the lounge and watched the scenery go by. There was great excitement mid morning when we came to a lock - our second one, however as the first lock had been at 2.30 am this was the first time we for us to watch. Lunch was served early at 11.30 as we arrived in Vienna about 12.30. We disembarked onto buses ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel City Central Vienna

    A gem of a hotel


    The Hotel City Central located just over the canal from old Vienna was beautiful. The staff were terrific, greeting us at check in with a hot glass of Gluewein, a hot mulled wine. Our accomodations, a family suite were beautiful, and the beds were very comfortable. The buffet at breakfast included in the price was very good, and the service was excellent. Vienna is a wonderful city, and at holiday time it just shines! The palaces, parks, churches, Christmas Markets were amazing. Would I return to Vienna? You bet, and definitely would stay at the Hotel City Central.

    Champagne for breakfast


    Although it seems that this hotel is outside Innerstadt, it really is just near it - so you reach the city just by crossing Danube. Still, the price lever is much more agreeable. Maybe this had something to do with the construction work taking place near the hotel though it did not bother us at all.

    The service was very friendly, the breakfast was much better than in Pertschy where we also stayed for 2 nights (as Pertschy did not have a vacancy for the whole time of our trip). And yes, Central served chilled champagne for breakfast!

    Großartige Lage und sehr hilfsbereites Personal


    Wir verbrachten hier drei Tage. Nachdem wir gebucht hatten, waren wir etwas besorgt, weil in den Reiseführern immer empfohlen wurde, dass man am Ring unterkommen sollte und dieses Hotel lag nicht am Ring. Wie auch immer, man ist davon nur wenige Minuten entfernt und braucht auch nicht diese ganz hohen Preise zu bezahlen. Die Zimmer waren sehr geräumig und sauber. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und half uns bei der Reiseplanung, und gab uns Wegbeschreibungen da wir nur wenig Zeit hier verbrachten. Das Frühstück war gut - stärkte einen für den Tag. Würde dieses Hotel empfehlen und wieder hier unterkommen.

    Tolle Unterkunft


    Wir verbrachten gegen Ende Februar 2 Tage im Hotel City-Central. Das Personal am Empfang war sehr freundlich und sprach Englisch. Die Zimmer hatten eine gute Größe, es gab aber zwei Einzelbetten und kein Doppelbett. Die Dusche war sehr stark, das war nach dem ganzen Schnee sehr erfrischend. Das Frühstück war sehr gut - tolle Auswahl and kalten Speisen und guter Kaffee! Die Lage des Hotels ist ziemlich gut - direkt bei Danube und der U-Bahn. Innerhalb und außerhalb des Hotels fanden Renovierungsarbeiten statt aber davon konnten wir auf dem Zimmer nichts hören. Würden hier mit Sicherheit wieder übernachten!

    Great location and very helpful staff


    We stayed for 3 nights. After booking we were a little worried as the guide books recommended staying within the ring and this hotel was not. However it is a minutes walk to the ring road but without a huge room rate.

    The rooms were very spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly and helped us with where to go and how to get there was it was a short stay.

    The breakfast was good - it set us up for the day.

    Would recommend this hotel and definately stay here again.

    Great place to stay


    We stayed at the Hotel City Central for 2 nights at the end of February. The reception staff were very friendly and spoke great English. The room was a decent size, although was a twin room not a double. The shower was very powerful which was very freshing in the snowy weather! Breakfast was very good - great selection of cold food and good coffee! The location of the hotel is pretty good - right by the Danube and a tube station. There was building work going on inside and outside the hotel during our stay, but we could not hear this at all from our room. Would definitely stay there again!

    Hotel City-Central -- a friendly, small, close-in bargain!


    We stayed here for four nights after three nights in Budapest. Our room was on the small side but quite comfortable, clean and quiet. The hotel's location is perfect for a first-time visitor to Vienna, as it's only a few minutes' walk from the Stephansdom, Opera House, and other sights inside the Ring--but at the same time its location is outside the Ring so it's not nearly as expensive as it would be otherwise. The staff are exceedingly friendly and knowledgeable, and speak fluent English. One fellow in particular impressed us with his knowledge of Viennese culture and history--a walking encyclopedia! Breakfast in a first-floor (second floor for North Americans) breakfast room is included, and though it's nothing fancy, it's well-prepared and varied, with cereals, breads, cold cuts, cheeses, juices and fruits, and scrambled eggs and sausages. In all respects, you can definitely tell that the management and staff take pride in the way they run the place.

    City Central - Friendly, Great Location and Great Value


    Winter in Vienna. Cold but a great time to visit, with thin crowds, bargain airfares, wonderful sights and Hotels like the City Central offering value deals. I travelled for a long weekend at the end of February, beginning of March and although I had visited the Austrian capital before, found plenty to captivate me and leave me needing a holiday to recover from all that sightseeing/walking ! The City Central was recommended by the airline (Swiss) at a bargain rate of 2 nights for price of 3 and even the nightly rate was reduced ! That made it great value compared to prices being quoted by 'anonymous' chain hotels situated further outside the city than City Central. The Hotel is situated less than 100 metres from the northern 'Ringstrasse' (the Inner Ring Road) and is brilliantly situated to access the city centre and all the main sights. In addition is near the famous Prater Big Wheel (of Harry Lime fame) which was a "must see" in all the guides.
