We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were friendly and most helpful. We had occasion to ask for ice late at night after my wife sprained her ankle at the State Opera House and although the restaurant was closed the gentleman at reception made every effort to get it for us, even wrapping it in a plastic bag.The hotel is in an excellent location, convenient to the centre of this lovely city close to the Naschmarkt. Room was clean and tidy and the breakfast excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and if we are ever in Vienna again we would certainly stay here. Collapse

Had a comfortable stay here for 3 nights. As I was I on my own I chose a single room but notwithstanding that there was adequate space and the bed was very comfortable. I had a few issues initially in that the safe and phone didn't work but these were resolved within minutes. I also ran out of liquid soap in the bathroom and shower and similarly these were quickly refilled. Although my room on the 3rd floor faced the main street it was very quite despite trams passing. Wi-Fi reception was excellent. The staff on reception were very helpful and polite as were any of the staff that I met. There is only one lift which is on the small side. The breakfast was very good with plenty of options. I ate in the restaurant one evening and the food was very tasty and the prices no more expensive than in restaurants. The hotel is located about 5-10 minutes walk from Karlsplatz and as indicated already trams run past the door. Local places of interest include Karlskirche and the Naschmarkt. It is easy to walk or get transport into the centre of Vienna. Collapse

We have recently returned from a 6 night stay at the Erzherzog Rainer hotel. The rooms are clean, with good facilities,and the staff are lovely and always happy to help. We always struggle when booking a hotel as we are both troubled by noisy hotels, but the hotel is quiet and they have taken soundproofing seriously. The windows (we were on the fifth floor facing onto Mozartgasse) keep out street noise really well, and the rooms on this side had a door between the main room door and the bedroom (separating the bathroom) which kept out hallway noise and noise between rooms that can travel through the bathroom ventilation. We were therefore very pleased by this and slept well in a quiet environment with very comfy beds! They also offer a choice of pillows and many other services free of charge (breakfast was included and was excellent, there's a free safe in the room, they print out boarding passes for free with no trouble, etc). A neighbour did decide to play the flute for lengthy periods of time but the hotel staff were quick to resolve this, agreeing hours that they could play (note- I don't have anything against flutes, but I do when it's the same series of notes being played over and over again!). The rooms have a TV with a fair amount of channels, but the WiFi works really well and we were pleasantly surprised that we could watch Netflix on my tablet with no problem. The rooms have a minibar in a good sized under-counter fridge, so we bought some milk and the hotel provided tea and coffee facilities in the room with no charge. As mentioned above, breakfast was great. It's a buffet help-yourself breakfast, with a good selection of cold meats and cheeses, yogurts and fruits, cereals, pastries, cakes, breads, cooked breakfast, and plenty of tea, coffee, and juice options. My partner is coeliac so buffets can be a problem, but he chose carefully and we didn't have an issue with gluten contamination at all. The breakfast hours are also long which is good when you're on holiday (I think they stopped breakfast at 1030). We used the bar on a couple of occasions but not the restaurant for lunch/dinner, so I can't comment on these but the menu looked great. The location of the hotel is perfect - far enough out of town not to be too busy, but close enough that you can hop on the u-Bahn at Taubstummengasse/Karlsplatz and get anywhere you'd want to be in Vienna. We would strongly recommend buying a timed-ticket for the U-Bahn (e.g. 24/48/72 hours, a week or a month, which permits travel on the U-Bahn, trams, and buses within Vienna). Don't be fooled by the lack of barriers on the U-Bahn - ticket checks do happen, and if you're caught without one there's a heavy fine. On our last day we got the U-Bahn to Landstrasse to use the CAT (City AIrport Train) to get to the airport. It's quick and easy, and much better value than a traditional transfer. If you need to change sterling into euros during your stay, we'd recommend the bank Schelhammer & Schattera in Stephansplatz. The currency exchange shops are expensive, and Bank of Austria don't offer this service unless you're a customer. There are some great restaurants surrounding the hotel, but Google maps doesn't tend to be helpful in finding these so it's worth taking a walk. Our absolute favourite was Santos. There is also a Spar shop over the road from the hotel which has convenient hours. This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. We would wholeheartedly recommend the hotel as it offers fantastic value for money. We would like to say thanks very much to the staff for making our stay so pleasant! Collapse

The location of this hotel is pretty darn good! It's on the tram lines into the city and near to a subway station. It's a fairly quick walk from the hotel to the Staadtsoper (15 minutes) and a further 10 minutes on to St. Stephen's Cathedral. Heading the other direction, it's not a bad walk -- although not overly direct -- to the Belvedere. There are two significant down sides to the hotel, however. One is that there's no A/C and even in early spring when it's not really that hot, the rooms tend to be stuffy and therefore, it is nice to have teh windows open. But you are on the tram lines and those trams are loud. Even with the windows closed, the trams can result in a too-early wake up in the morning. Setting that aside, the sleep is actually good and the rooms comfortable. The other drawback is that the single elevator is small and old, and takes quite a long time to move a crowd over several successive trips. However, the breakfast is superb! They even set up a special menu for those who were set to run the Vienna Marathon. I wasn't running, but I sure did enjoy the menu. Staff was very helpful, too! They generously made sure we had packed breakfast bags to take to the airport with us since our taxi left before breakfast was set to start. It has a few drawbacks, but I'd not hesitate to stay here again on my return trip ... I'd probably just ask for a room facing away from the trams. Collapse
