Historical Traveler Reviews NH Vienna Airport
It was ok
We stayed 2 nights in Vienna, over New Year's Eve. I was annoyed to have to stay out by the airport since we drove to Vienna and didn't fly... but my husband had found a good rate through ratestogo and figured that taking the train in & out of the city wouldn't be too much of a pain. Well, it was.
The staff was distracted and not very friendly. I had to call down and ask for a hair dryer - I hadn't brought one because they'd advertised having them in rooms on their site. We had to call down 3 times to keep reminding them - it's a good thing I wasn't in a hurry to get somewhere.
The biggest problem with this hotel was it's location for someone trying to see the city of Vienna. I also hate the feeling of big impersonal hotels, so I definitely wouldn't stay here again.
Convient location/ not bad hotel..good food
When I visted this hotel I went there with 5 of my friends (18 years old) and it was pretty good hotel for the price. They had just finished renovations so every looked nice. Bathrooms were recently redone, very nice and clean. Hotel has good atmosphere and is convient after we just had to cross the street from the airport. Easy acsess to Vienna. Delicious breakfasts and food in general was good. Alltogether a pretty nice hotel for what you pay for. ( beware of the porn channels on tv!)
Good but spartan
The big draw, is, as noted, the location directly across the airport entrance. We had a 7AM flight and the hotel was ideal to catch that with time to spare for the truely great breakfast.
We checked in at the airport and beat the long lines and then walked back to the hotel to enjoy one of the best breakfasts I've ever had as a buffet in Europe.
The hotel is used by airline personel and there are wide variations in room quality. We had an average one and it was a bit tired but for one night, it was more than adequate. We heard at breakfast that there were areas of the hotel that were renovated and much better and that if we had asked for them at check in, we might have gotten a better room.
I noted the comments about the porn. I missed it.
The retro-Soviet experience
If you are missing travel behind the Iron Curtain, here's your chance. Rooms like Kiev in the 1970s, dirty carpet, sticky stains on the furniture, rudimentary equipment and non-existent bathroom items (soap etc) are the memories from my stay there. Don't be fooled by the lobby, which is modern and cool - the rooms have not been updated, and worn carpet greets you as soon as you step out of the elevator. A police-state check-in experience may also be enjoyed if you refuse to provide some of the more personal information to the check-in clerk. There are some deviations from the true Soviet experience, though. The breakfast is good and varied, and for those who like it the free hotel porn programs on TV may offer some distraction - I found it added to the seediness of the place.
Run, don't walk, from this hotel
Have you ever stayed in a hotel where it actually made you feel depressed just by being there? Well this is that hotel! Okay, the location is great if you are catching an early flight; however, unless you have a really tight schedule, I would seriously reconsider staying here. At first you are fooled because the lobby is so nice, clean, and modern. Well the rooms differ...significantly. Although I spent little time in the room (mainly just to sleep and shower) the two nights I spent here in November 2003 were dreadful. Although there are (supposedly) nice rooms in the newer section of the hotel, my corporate rate didn't cover those rooms. Instead I was placed in a standard room that was worse than a bad Motel 6 in the States. Stained bedspreads, soiled carpeting, broken telephone, and terribly noisy. Fortunately I moved on to the Vienna Marriott which was fabulous. For 100 euros a night, I felt ripped off as the Marriott was only 149 euros.
Not pleased with the hotel
Stayed there in July 2004. The location of the hotel was the draw, since we had an early morning flight the next day. The lobby is spacious and beautiful, but the rooms are just adequte. The biggest problem was the sealed windows with no air conditioning. Very uncomfortable. Also, be careful with the TV remotes and children. The hotel was offering hard core porn as a regular channel, not pay per view.
Good value for money
I stayed one night (May 12) in the hotel.
Convenient, just over the airport entrance.
Sufficient staff to check in (10 pm).
Room at 7th floor. Seems completely renewed.
Not high luxury but very tastefully and efficiently decorated.
Bathroom amenities complete.
Very good value for money.
Another deservedly bad review of the NH Vienna
I agree with the recent review of the NH Vienna. It is right across from the airport, so it seems so convenient. But the aggravation of a 45-minute wait in line for us could have been replaced by a 15 minute ride into the city. The hotel's telephone wake up call service was "broken" we were told. Then we did get a call the next day afterall.
The front desk seemed understaffed and disorganized. The beds and furniture were cheap and worn and old. With so many great hotels just down the road in Vienna, this one is not worth it.
The worst hotel i have stayed at in 40 years.
The hotel is just across the street from the airport, which was convenient for us but: From entring the hotel and waiting in line like at a security check for a receptionist to find time for us, and until we left there was absolutely nothing except the breakfast which was o.k. The critic before me said the hotel is divided into two parts executive and comfort. Two days ago it was already three but no prospectus said so... The key did not fit the room, the elevators were mostly out of order, there was no soap left in the canister or shampoo above the bath. We stayed 2 nights but no one came to clean at all...By screaming we did get some clean towels and soap. This was the 4 star part... As it is now in midst of redividing maybe it will improve, it can hardly get worse...
Located directly opposite Vienna airport itself. The hotel has a three star and a four star part. I ended up in the three star part and wasnt to impressed by the price/quality ratio. Worse, the whole place is under construction (end 2003), be prepared for hammer drilling and some piling at 7 o'clock in the morning.

We arrived in Vienna at around 5:30pm and after checking into our rooms (I was in a 4 person dorm with 3 boys) Christine and I got ready and met up at 7:30pm for happy hour in the hostel bar. Beers were 1€ each so we ordered 2 and sat down with a few other Busabouters including Shikha. Ten minutes before happy hour ended Christine and I got another 2 beers each. We were having a great time with everyone ...
