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.

... doing heaps of stuff since our last blog entry… sorry it’s been so long. We’re now in Vienna which is the capital of Austria and there is lots to tell you about. On our first day we picked up our Nan… who we call Ninnee. After we took her stuff to our hostel we all went out to some food markets. They were big, crowded and smelt yummy (lots of food and spices). We bought some olives (yuk) and ...
... a statue of a naked lady outside, and more bric-à-brac, the mens covered in cheesecake photos. The food was good with of course wiener schnitzel being a choice. Cindy had ribs, and I had goulash. We especially liked the garlic herb bread with sunflower seeds and almonds. There was a toast at the beginning with a schnapps, and we aren't sure what it was, but it may have been a derivative of Kerosene. Warms the tummy don't ya know. The next morning ...
To work off lunch we hiked to the highest point in town, the Bratislava Castle. From here we had a pretty nice view of the city and its surrounds. Time for a group shot.
After a handful of days with Kat and Antoine it was time to say farewell again. We agreed ...
... explore. It is drop-dead gorgeous here!! We walked over the Danube into old town and promptly found the restaurant Figemueller that a lady had recommended in the train station....all by sheer luck. It was so ironic. Then we found the cathedral and wandered to shop for dinner spots followed by walking long the Danube. Along the way back to the hotel we went to the market for a few treats and are ready to call it a night.
... greeted with stale bread mostly, this was a definite win!
Today was my waste day on the tour, and I was probably lucky that it happened in a town that I had already visited. While the rest of the group went on a city tour of Vienna, which would’ve been great to see, I tried to find a doctor, and was unsuccessful, so I napped.
In the afternoon I went into the city to see the Vienna Opera costume museum. As ...
