We arrived at 3:00 pm on a Sunday, and were shocked to find that the reception hours ended at 2:00, necessitating finding a phone booth and calling the head office. (We didn't know this in advance. Weekdays, reception is open until 8:00 pm.)
After that little debacle was settled, we were quickly installed in a comfortable room on the second floor of this modernized hotel. The view out our window of a bank of unattractive offices and some raised train tracks wasn't great, but the baking afternoon sun required closed drapes anyway. (The "air conditioning" was little more than a fan).
On the whole, though, for those traveling with a car, this place is a great deal at 76 Euro a night plus breakfast. It's two blocks from the U3, which takes you right into the heart of the Vienna scene in 15 minutes, without parking or driving hassles, and the neighborhood, though working class and nothing fancy, is decent and safe, with great people-watching opportunities.
The receptionists are business-like, but friendly enough, and the place is absolutely spotless, and the breakfast quite generous. Our only mishap (besides the surprise at the beginning), was a parking ticket due to parking too close to the pedestrian crosswalk--though we didn't park any differently than anyone else. I suspect our obvious rental car status helped seal the deal with that ticket.

This was a fairly unevenetful drive which was great.We then met Adrienne, a friend of ours from Temple and her boys for dinner and a river cruise. Adrienne was born and raised in Budapest so this was a great treat to be taken around by a native.

The only tricky thing was it was very hard to hear her in such a large group and we could not take in the sights huddled with our jackets and umbrellas. I was ...

That evening, Krys went exploring and I followed the group to dinner and a classical music concert at the absolutely stunning Schonnbrun Palace. I'm not a huge classical music junkie, but when in Vienna...classical music is their thing! It was a great experience.
another early night thanks to my cold and off to Budapest via Bratislava this morning!
... house in Lyon! It's only €420 a month which includes electricity, Internet, phone, water etc. It's odd to have all those included, but it seems like the norm in France. It's certainly not like that in Australia. Maybe that's why so many people think living in Australia is expensive... Anyways, once I signed the contract, scanned it and emailed it back to her and did an international transfer of money for half the bond/rent (because we did a deal ...
