Kind, knowledgeable staff...
Many guests, particularly those to new to Vienna, appreciate that the friendly, helpful staff at reception are pleased to provide directions and advice regarding the city's famous attractions. The staff is also knowledgeable about amenities in the immediate neighbourhood, which include a large grocery store, laundromat, and some terrific bakeries selling Viennese pastries.
Climate control issues...
Several guests have reported issues with room climate, including both insufficient heating in winter and ineffective air conditioning in the summer.
Stay away from the road...
Light sleepers have been disturbed by traffic noise in the rooms facing the main road, particularly with the windows open to alleviate the air conditioning issues.
A bit too basic for some...
The olive green paint on the walls is not to everyone's taste, and taken together with the room's relatively small footprint and lack of "luxuries" like a coffee machine, some guests find the overall atmosphere a bit grim.
