Lovely rooms, friendly (English speaking) staff, and a great breakfast.
Small criticism would be the lack of decent gym facilities (but this is true for most hotels, frankly).
Location is excellent - 5 mins from Karlsplatz metro station, and 5-10 mins walk to the Opera house / Vienna centre. I stayed for a week.
Nice location in walking distance to the Opera, two tube and several tram lines. Slightly soulless entrance but very nice yard and extremely nice garden suits which give the impression to stay in the countryside rather than in the middle of the city. Very nice food and exceptional wine list in the restaurant. Extremely nice and helpful staff.
New hotel, well located for transportation: near to train station, metro station, city bikes, 3 super markets, one in front of the hotel. Also pretty close to the Belvedere (walking distance) and to Karlplatz, easy connection to the old city center and the Ring.
Spacious room, simple decoration, pillows where not the best for me, but apparently you can ask for other. Clean, friendly staff, security box in each room.
We didn't try the buffet breakfast, but looked good, a little expensive for me. Near to a few local cafes.

Walking distance to Vienna downtown. Safe, close to a metro station, nice breakfast, great service, very gentle assistance. I'd definitively stay at this hotel again... although would ask for a room with the TV located closer to bed.

I was delayed getting into the city but my check-in was smooth at the hotel. The room was very clean, updated recently by the look of it. There was sufficient space, lots of character in the hotel in terms of its design and feel. There were many bars and cafe's close by which was ideal and the metro was a few minutes walk up the road so very easy to locate if you are a tourist.

I stayed in this hotel for one night after a very poor experience in a hotel down the road. I cannot recommend this place enough. I got there over an hour and a half before check in to find my room was ready for me. The staff were very pleasant. The double bed was comfortable. The free wifi was good. The breakfast was served from 7 til 11 but it wasn't the biggest selection. Still, it was included with the room so I can't complain. All in all, a very pleasant night.
Many of Vienna’s artistic and cultural celebrities live here. Wieden’s varied architecture includes fine examples of the Secession style (Art Nouveau) and the city’s most impressive Baroque church, Karlskirche. The Naschmarkt on the Wienzeile is Vienna’s liveliest market.
