Austria Classic Hotel Wien
Travel Blogs from Vienna
After spending another day wondering around beautiful Cesky Krumlov, we left for Vienna yesterday morning after breakfast. Took a private transfer with a young uni student driver who spoke minimal English. Arrived at the Classic Hotel Wein around 12.00 noon. On first impressions Vienna reminds me of Paris - wide tree-lined streets with beautiful …
Met vriendin naar Wenen gegaan. Twee volle dagen. Aanleiding 150 jaar Klimt.
En Klimt hebben we gezien. Hij vormde de rode draad van ons bezoek in Wenen. In alles zagen we Klimt en zijn tijdgenoten terug in de stad.
In het schitterende Belvedere hebben we een prachtige overzichtstentoonstelling over Klimt bezocht. En zoals gezegd het …
We took a bus tour of the city of Vienna and along the way stopped at the Hundertwasserhaus apartment block. Friedensreich Hundertwasser's style is unique in using lots of bright colors and incorporating nature on the outsides of his buildings. He …
guten Morgen! What a good night's sleep can do? Breakfast this morning was fabulous. Served in the hotel banquet area, we were served a buffet style breakfast with all the european favorites (I don't know why but the tomatoes here are fabulous) many different cheeses and pastries
Our first day, I must admit, we were all a sad crowd. We made a really good attempt at staying awake but at about 35 hours the colors start to fade. Kaitlyn and I walked to the park right near our hotel called the Prater (like our amusement parks) but soon turned around and decided we couldn't do it. We napped for about an hour before dinner. We …

Prima hotel tegen centrum van Wenen aan. Zowel te voet als met metro zijn alle bezienswaardigheden binnen handbereik. Dicht bij station Praterstern en dus makkelijk vanaf vliegveld te bereiken.
Kamers functioneel ingericht maar wel aan kleine kant. Prima ontbijt.

Historical Traveler Reviews Austria Classic Hotel Wien Vienna
The Nordbahn is a well-appointed hotel with easy connections to the UN centre, the Danube boat station and main roads leading to the centre of Vienna and the metro. The rooms are comfortable and provided with all one needs for a pleasant stay in the City. An excellent breakfast is served in spacious and comfortable areas including an outside area during the better weather. The staff who maintain an excellent team spirit and who have changed little over some 12 years of having stayed in the hotel, are very polite annd helpful. I have not met a weakness in their responsibilities including their Manager Inge. She has been on the staff since I first booked rooms at the hotel in 1994. I always stay at the Nordbahn when I visit Vienna and can recommend it to all and sundry.
A long-time favorite place to stay
My husband and I have stayed at the Hotel Nordbahn once or twice a year for at least 10 years. We have always been well looked after, well fed, and very comfortable. The staff have always been very helpful, whether we have had changes in our travel schedule, needed a different type of room, or wanted help checking on concert tickets. The breakfasts are superb! The location is great, with two subway stations nearby and an easy walk to the train station or the Prater. The hotel has very little turnover in staff. It is a great pleasure to return to Vienna each time and be greeted by familiar faces who remember our names and our needs. Staying at the Nordbahn has made travelling to Vienna as easy for us as travelling in our own country, and a great pleasure each time.
I booked a trip to Vienna for four nights back in December 2005. As christmas was approaching I took it upon myself to find a quality but relatively inexpensive hotel. I can honestly say that the Hotel Nordbahn fit the bill perfectly.
Our favourite hotel in Vienna
A great thank You to Hotel Nordbahn.
We have during the years stayed at several hotels in Vienna. None of those has a compared friendly and familiar atmospher to, what you meet at Hotel Nordbahn.
Manager Inge Seitz and the entire team are allways friendly. helpfull and serviceminded.
The breakfast buffet is fresh and varied. An extra plus is the parking facility in conection with the hotel.
We will warmly recommend Hotel Nordbahn for as well individuel tourists as business guest.

I have been to Vienna on Business a couple of times and decided to try this hotel because I heard about it's "good" service from my friend who stayed there. The staff members were mostly nice and courteous but the Manager, Mrs. I.S. is extrememly rude abnoxious to us when it came to the dispute of room prices. We were promised one price but when we got there, the price had changed. We would happily pay for the difference if it was a genuine mistake and if she wasn't so nasty to us when we arrive and when we depart. We could have had a nice stay but she made this such an unpleasant memory. The rude service together with its very small and stuffy. There are other newer hotels with airconditioner, similar price, better breakfast, bigger better rooms better service in the vicinity you go with like the one near the Messe and even others along the same street.
I found the Nordbahn to be a cozy reminder of classic, historic hotels I've stayed in in the past. I thought it was charming that they ask guests to leave their room keys upon leaving the hotel property and reclaim them upon their return. The night front desk clerk was extremely friendly and offered me rooms in either the front of the hotel (near the lift) or in the back. As I was staying for only for one night, I took the room in the front, which may have been a mistake. I booked a single occupancy room, and it was very long and narrow. I'd guess it to be no more than seven feet wide. There was a twin XL bed and small desk and a small bathroom with a stand up shower. Everything was cozy, but not cramped. The furnishings in the room were immaculate and, I suspect, recently renovated.
Traditional Austrian hotel
Wholeheartedly agree with the previous reviewer. Stayed for 2 nights in October 2004 at this comfortable traditionally styled hotel near the Prater. Ours was an average sized wood panelled double room. Clean, no complaints. 3-4 min walk to the nearest underground station. Also about 15 mins walk from Hundertwasser gallery (Kunsthaus) - don't miss this if you're in Vienna. Great buffet breakfast. Nice cafes/bakeries nearby as well. Recommended.
My friend and I stayed in Nordbahn for 4 nights (6-10 Jun 04), we really loved the place. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is clean and the buffet breakfast is very good. Location is also excellent. Very near to underground and trams station. We definitely will stay there for our next visit and will surely recommend our friends/relative to stay in Nordbahn.
