My, how happy we were to finally get to Vienna! Some would call it a "trip from hell." That's what I called it too.
We took a train from Český Krumlov to České Budějovice switched in Linz and then to Vienna, or Wien, as it's called in Austria. The train from České Budějovice to Linz was an …
The first thing that must be said is that it is COLD here!! It was about 8 degrees when we went out this morning and that was at the warmest part of the day. It drizzled and rained the whole time we were out. We set out for the city at about 10:30ish (Les slept forever) by tram. We wandered around for a while till we ended up at the tourist information desk and got loaded down with pamphlets. We then found a restaurant where we ...
... butterflies or whiskers painted on their faces and covered head to toe in bandages and plaster. Food vendors provided authentic Austro-Hungarian delicacies, including several types of bratwurst, kifli (a type of pastry), giant pretzels, goulash and mulled wine (gluvine). Not to mention gingerbread, donuts, cakes and did I mention the mulled wine? Incredibly delicious. We spent the day exploring the fairs activities and trying to get sneaky photos of the Austrian soldiers. ...
... in Vienna, we watched a movie so that did make time go a bit faster. We arrived in at 5.40 and had to be at dinner by 6pm so it was a quick turn around to get down the street in time. It was the worst place we have had to date. The food was ok soup to begin with which Scott didn't eat and I couldn't finish, hen a stew thing with pork and pasta and a pancake for dessert but what was really terrible was the service. The lady who was in charge was so rude. We ...
... most often used for festivals (probably best known in Oktoberfest). I am hoping to go to Oktoberfest during one of our weekends and instead of renting a dirndl or having to go in my street clothes, I found a cheep one in a shop just a block from my apartment. It was 48 euro and then I had 15 euro worth of alterations made which, if you look at the prices of traditional dirndls, is really quite good. Anyways, if is really beautiful and fits me ...

Everything was really good. The only thing is that the receptionist and the rest personnel did not speak english very well, so it was difficult to give us some useful information about our visits

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Wien Hotel Vienna
For the money, this place can't be beat. If you are looking for old city charm - forget it. This place isn't that. What it is: clean, comfortable with huge rooms. Our "standard" room had a living room, wetbar, mini-fridge, large bathroom, and a large comfortable bed. The breakfast bar was great and convenient. Our one and only problem was asking the girl who worked the front desk for a recommendation for a restaurant. Lesson learned here is "Do not expect world reknowned, five star conceriege service from a teenager working the late shift." If you want a great meal and you are not affraid to drop a couple hundred Euro - go to Vincent, it's across the river in the old Jewish Quarter. Vincent serves Austrian/International cuisine - each meal (made up of small courses) is catered to your specific taste. It is a eating experience of a lifetime. We had a nine course meal that won't soon be forgotten - but didn't go to bed feeling stuffed, but just right. I used the money I saved staying at this hotel (which I would stay at again) to spend on dinner.
My wife and I stayed at this hotel in January 2006 for three nights. It is a great hotel. The location as stated is a bit tricky to find however, especially if you plan to drive there. The address does indeed state that it is on Mariahilferstrasse and this is correct, but Mariahilferstrasse is not an easy street to navigate by car. The entrance on Mariahilferstrasse is through a sort of glass court (or as one reviewer said, a corridor). The sign is displayed above the entrance so you will see it if you are alert. But it may be easiest to access this hotel if you enter from the other street which is on Stiftgasse. The hotel's parking entrance is also on Stiftgasse rather than Mariahilferstrasse so keep this in mind if driving. There is a fee of €13,50 per day to park your car in the hotel parking garage. If you do plan on driving to the hotel, make sure you have good and detailed maps available because Vienna (like many large European cities) is a maze of one way streets with hard to read street signs (especially at night). We spent nearly an hour trying to navigate our way to the hotel, with many wrong turns during our quest to find it. A Vienna native probably would have needed 15 minutes once inside the city borders.
Excellent! Clean, very large, good location
Very large rooms, with seperate lounge, bedroom and bathroom. Extremely clean room and bathroom was very large. Within a few minutes walk to the Mueseum quarter. 5-15 minutes walk to the cathedral and the museums and tourist sites. Great location in general for walking to all sites, with train station very close to the hotel also. Must see the Christmas Fair at the City hall in Nov/Dec. It was magical!
Would highly recommend this hotel and definitely stay here again.
Good rooms, good location, good price
Stayed here for 2 nights in November. As previous reviewers have noted, it was a bit hard to find but once we reached our room we were delighted. We got a mini-suite with a sitting area and a dressing area off the spacious bathroom. The breakfast provided a good choice and there was free internet access on a (single) PC off reception. The decor was a bit 90s and starting to look a little dated but in view of the space, the central location and the price, I would recommend the hotel to anyone.
We just got back from a lovely holiday in Vienna. We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and loved it. We asked for a double room but we were given a suite. It had a very large sitting area / kitchen area (fridge, microwave, sink, breakfast bar, air-condition) which was great as we have a 2 year old daughter. The Bedroom and the bathroom were also very spacious. The condition of the hotel is very good and clean.
Clean and spacious
This hotel was above our expectations. Our room turned out to be a suite which we were not aware of before hand. It was perfectly clean and comfortable. Suprisingly spacious for a European hotel. The staff was very nice and all spoke great English. I will definitely stay here again upon return to Vienna. The only reason I didn't give it a a 5-star rating is because breakfast is not included but is available in there restaurant for 14 Euros per person. There is a great restaurant two blocks from the hotel called 7 Stern Brau. Ask the front desk for directions. It is delicious! We went there both nights we were in town.
Clean and comfortable - not flash
This hotel is a bit hard to find but with comments of the previous reviewers in mind we didn't have too much trouble. As you are walking along the street keep looking up at the buildings to locate the NH sign. It is a good location very close to the metro stop. Make sure you visit the Mirco-brewery/restraurant around the corner - it was excellent (ask the hotel staff for directions). The breakfast was excellent. The rooms were very large with standard hotel furnishings.
Stayed there for the honeymoon in 2002 and really loved it... the location is good.. stefansdom/plaz is a few metro stations away (metro station is virtually infront of the hotels entrance) and the mariahilfer strasse is good for shopping as well... large rooms, clean bathrooms, good breakfast - just what you need for a cosy stay! Look farward to staying again in july 2005!
Excellent location once you find it. It is two stops from the Westbanhof on the U6 and located directly beside the entrance to the underground. Found the rooms extremely large and spacious. Would stay at this hotel again if ever in Vienna.
we spent a couple of days in vienna, staying in the nh hotel vienna.I can only recommend it. we had booked for three and got a small apartment, complete with fridge and microwave.Very good: the bathroom is divided into two rooms, so two people can use it at the same time.
