Property Description

The MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi is located in Leopoldstadt, Vienna's second district, close to the Karmeliter Market, a traditional fruit and vegetable market where you can find Viennese life in bloom: it's a meeting place for artists and a colourful mixture of people. There are plenty of small cafes, restaurants and shops, and a walk through the alleys is as relaxing as it is entertaining. The Old Town with St. Stephen's Cathedral can also be reached on foot.

Of course, real Sissi fans (by the way, insiders spell it 'Sisi'...) must visit the Emperor's Apartments in the Vienna Hofburg, the Sisi Museum and the magnificent Baroque Schoenbrunn Palace. These and other tourist highlights are very easy to reach from the hotel as Schottenring station is right around the corner: from there you can catch the U2, the U4, trams 1, 2 and 31 and no fewer than nine bus lines.

The hotel offers 102 modern non-smoking rooms (single, double and multi-bed rooms) equipped with a shower/WC, a flat-screen TV, a telephone and a hair dryer. Bed linen is always included. You will also find a bit of Sissi and Viennese charm in each room. Lovingly designed little details set our hotel apart from our partner hotel 'MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz' which is located just around the corner. There, it's Franz who takes the lead!

In our guest kitchen you can exchange information with other guests, cook a little meal or simply do your washing. Or you can put your feet up in our lounge and go online at one of our computers. At the bar, with its game zone, you can test your skills at table football and celebrate your victory with a drink. There is free WiFi access in all public zones, and drinks, sandwiches, muffins and cookies are available at the bar and the reception.

    We arrived in Vienna by train and took a taxi to the hostel. We would never have found it otherwise. It is however very close to the public transport system and once we orientated, very easy to return to. The staff were very welcoming, available and helpful. I have stayed in a hostel in Vienna on another occasion, I consider this hostel to be far superior, it had everything a hostel should have without fussiness or pretentiousness. Responses to emails were prompt and helpful.

    My family and I were pleased with the "hostel" and would indeed come again. The location is fine for those whom walking has no restrictions, or limitations. The desk staff was always willing to answer questions and very efficient in obtaining a cab. Breakfast was well worth the price.

    The staff was very nice and the room was very clean and spacious! I stayed in a twin bed room and it had a couch and a private bathroom. I enjoyed everything about the stay except the location is a bit far from a metro stop or downtown. It is too far to walk to downtown and the nearest metro stop is about 10 minutes away. Overall the place is incredible for the price and I would recommend it!
