Mother and daughter escape.
My daughter and I stayed with you when we came to enjoy the Christmas markets. Everything was within walking distance and easy to find. The staff were very helpful, friendly and kind. Will definitely stay again when next we are in Vienna.
Shannon, au5 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Not worthy of a 4 star rating. No longer associated with Mercure, however, we never prewarned. Were told at check in that we could upgrade to a better room - did my homework and it was more expensive at what I could have done with any hotel booking broker plus the insult that we paid for this sub-standard accommodation 10 months earlier! The air conditioning was very poor. The view to the street depressing. The breakfasts sub-standard.

Good hotel in a convenient location
Good location. Close to u bahn station. Our room was pretty small and dark with only a tiny window but it was comfortable. Didn’t have breakfast there so can’t comment on the restaurant.
Helen, gb2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Close to the city center, this lovely hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful, and our overall experience was truly excellent. I would absolutely stay here again. One note: when making a booking through, we decided not to include the hotel's breakfast, figuring that we'd be able to find a good place nearby. On the first morning of our stay, we went to check out the in-house offering, and were so impressed that we ate there every morning. The options are numerous and delicious, and I look forward to eating there again. All in all, an excellent stay in a top-notch hotel at this price point.

Fair 4.0
Not a place I recommend for the price
they tried to give us cheaper rooms than the ones we booked the day we arrived. After I had a look at the room, I had to go back and ask them to give us what we paid for. City taxe was not included. Some of the tap are automatic, you pay 250€ a night to feel like you're in a gas station bathroom. Soap was not even filled when we entered the room, and they pretend it is to save the planet we had to ask to have some more. it was not even done by the cleaning. Also looks like smiling is not free.

Pleasant stay for New year holiday
The hotel is close to most spots of visits and it is well connected by different kinds of transport. The bathroom has been modernized and in good condition compared to most hotels in old buildings that don’t have sufficient water pressure for a good shower! We are very satisfied with the breakfast as it has many varieties of choice and the serving hours are long too. Unexpectedly the hotel provides all guests with a little bottle of sprinkling wine at new year eve which made our celebration more complete! The only comment is the room is bit too hot though we did open the window.

Good hotel With just a couple of buts
Good location, Nice and clean. Just a warning, if you hang the “Do not disturb” tag in your door, it means yo are going to do your room yourself and thus protect the ambient voluntarily.....the air conditioned was fix or the control just didn’t work. It was to hot and had to open window to balance temperature in the room.
