The hotel is a liittle out of town, well worth the extra effort. The views from the terrace looking over Vienna are stunning. The sunrise and sunset spectacular. Breakfast was good. Free parking in front of the hotel and free internet access at reception - we would stay here again when in Vienna. TV channels a little limited, otherswise a very good hotel.
Splendid view of Wien, ample garden, very comfortable, lot of parking, quiet location, superb "classy" building with solid walls and big windows. Very kind and helpful reception staff. Restaurant staff not really fluent in english, location is a bit far from Wien's center (bus+underground or go by car and pay parking in the city's center).
The free parking was the attraction at this hotel. The hotel is on the outskirts of the city and, although, advertised as 25 minutes from the centre, this is only true if bus and train connect - which doesn't happen at night and it can be very cold standing and waiting for the bus.
The building and surrounds were wonderful. Great character hotel - room was great with mezzanine. Breakfast terrific. Would certainly go back again and again. Easy bus and tube ride to city. Parking on site.
Nice view, you may walk in the big park around. Bus station was in front of the door. In 20 Minutes you are in city centre.
The setting was great
the view of Vienna at night small bathroom
Good location, panorama, parking and park
Staff throughout very welcoming and polite. The view and quiet out of town location suited us. Very relaxing atmosphere and easy to access the Wiener Wald.
Outstanding setting; restaurant provides very good food and the summer terrace seating is thoroughly romantic. Staff is uniformly friendly and helpful. Public transit is very convenient and easy to use to go anywhere in Vienna quickly. Park setting provides easy outdoor exercise on the grounds. Restaurant closes capricously for private functions, so one needs to confirm ahead of time if the restaurant will be open on any given evening. Stairs between the beds and the rest of the room are too noisy; using them awakens all in the room.
The view of Vienna at night. Great Location. Very nice rooms. Parking for free.
The whole place is way too expensive for what it can offer. Hidden behind the ECO logo, the service provided is very poor.
Good staff, good breakfast, quiet and peacefull place.
The breakfast was very good and the room was large, modern and clean. On the Booking.com website there were very clear and accurate driving directions which made finding the hotel easy. The staff were friendly and helpful, explaining the public transport links to the centre and offering the use of the kitchen to prepare food for our young daughter. The outside of the hotel is not very inspiring and the inside (corridors etc.) resembled a university student dormatory. The hotel is a long way from the centre requiring a bus and metro journey to arrive there.
Service was excellent and breakfast delicious!
Great breakfast. Free internet. Large bathroom. Smell of smoke from room below. I requested non-smoking room, but there was an obvious smoke odor.
independance - it's appartment, not a hotel. good option to stay with kids - enough place to play. There is nothing special, clean and a lot of place. old washingmashine - was not clear if we can use it or better no. it could be nice if there would be some of bath cosmetics - at least soap.
staff friendliness, excellent breakfast
Friendly staff, quiet location on a hill on the west border of Vienna. Good transport connection with the city from 6am till 10pm (~20-25 min from Stephansplatz on bus and U-bahn). Tasty breakfast. Wireless internet covering most of the hotel area.
hospitality, room was very clean and bright, good breakfast as well
Forest nearby Carpet in rooms
The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was great, and the place had a warm, eclectic character. Located about 5 minutes from the U3 station at Ottakring made getting around very easy. My room was comfortable, clean and cozy.
I very much enjoyed the friendliness of the Hotel Schwalbe staff and the appeal of my room, very spacious. The only suggestion I have is to perhaps have the bed with one entire mattyress rather than having two seperate ones on a bed.
The personnel were net and helpful. The location is OK - only 15 minutes by metro. My room was quite noisy in the morning (from c. 6 AM) due to frequent car traffic under room window.
Very nice and proactive staff in nice historically looking building. It was wonderful to be there for three nights! Everything for reasonable price. I will definitely come again. Internet in the room was not working for me due to recent repairs.
Clean, comfortable room Easy access to public transportation Trouble finding the hotel
The place has excellent service and yes is a bit far, but is great attention, super clean and nice breakfast. Super good quality for the price
Good staff, quiet room, good value for money, the hotel is situated a bit off the city center, but is easily reached by subway.
Very friendly and helpful staff, location in calm area of Vienna
This hotel is old but clean. The staff were very nice. The shower is too old. The amount of water is samll, it takes a long time to take a shower. The location is a little bit far.
Kind stuff too expensive room ! not a good price !
Receptionists are really kind and helpful as written here in previous comments. That goes for breakfast, too. Really good! Small but very good organized bathroom. Clean and seemed very well maintained. Great position of the hotel, even though it’s not right in the center of the city. About 20 minutes of walk to MuseumsQuartier and to Mariahilfer strasse. Tram and U-Bahn stations very near. Room was ridiculously small. Traffic noise is not that bad in the room overlooking the side street when windows are closed. Pillows could be better. No free wi-fi Internet. If you come with a car, you’re gonna have problems with parking around the hotel, unless you pay hotel parking. Too many rules, regulations and weird (no-)parking signs in surrounding streets. Above all that, if you can park your car in the street, you’ll have to pay, anyway.
good value for the money, about 10-15 minutes to Westbanhof
Perfect location near metro and bus station near center of city. Everithing brend new and clean. 24 hour tea and coffe, internet, nice staff, good price, washing and drying mashine.
Hotel staff and cleanliness of room
hotel very clean but basic, food plentiful but basic, staff very helpful and friendly, location central would stay again. bit noisy, blinds did not shut out enough light
Though the Location was good, one should not expect any more than bed & breakfast. Its not a Hotel but Hostel with breakfast. Staff was helpful.
Great location for a hostel/hotel, convenient for travel throughout Vienna. Need to reserve parking in advance as there are only a few spots.
Very good localisation for Wien Stadthalle, cheap parking, clean and nice rooms.
The breakfast was very good , the room was OK for 4 persons . The noise from outside .They have to do a space inside the hostel for smoking.
It was very comfortable, and the bathroom extremely clean and newly furnished.We stayed one night but were very satisfied. There's a parking lot, and the Subway station is near by.The staff was very gentle and helpful. I definitely will recommend this hostel to my friends! Maybe the location is a bit far from the center, but the line 6 goes just near the hotel, so everything's fine.
faire hostel for faire price with great staff.
It is clean, and comfortable, with a nice view to the city. It is ideal for one night. WLAN is also available. There was no hot water
Rooms clean, comfortable bed, breakfast good. Stunning view over Vienna from terrace. Excellent value for money.
the wiev. in the evening was a litle noisi.
The landscape, and the price It didn't have Tv in the room but it was fine
The outside view is very nice and the rooms are quite good.
Night view on the city.
The location and the staff. Hostel was really great. No problem with transportation to the city center. Food could have been better.
view of vienna, hommy
low price far away from the city
