Beautiful Hotel! The staff was very accommodating, the location was PERFECT - right near the historical museums, state opera, old city center, etc. Right outside of the hotel are blocks of shopping, downtown isn't far away. Easy access to the metro, tram - all were within walking distance.
The hotel itself was a little narrow but very efficient in terms of using space - all facilities were clean and modern, loved the bathroom, and everything. The hotel is gorgeous!
Hotel is next to the tube station. Just cross the road. Easy to get to from the airport via the CAT. Upon arrival staff were nice and spoke good English. Breakfast good. Clean and tidy. Close to attractions. Thinking of staying here again.
I was pleased with my entire experience at the Ibis Wien Mariahilf - reception was friendly and welcoming; room was clean, spacious and comfortable; and it was quiet. I arrived in Vienna via train and then traveled to the airport the following morning. This hotel is in an excellent location for making these connections. It was also convenient for an array of services - restaurants, shops, subway, etc. I would definitely stay at this hotel again when traveling to or through Vienna. While it is not a high-end hotel, it easily met my requirements and it is good value.
There are two Mercure hotels in Vienna, make sure you book the Mercure Secession Wien as we looked at both and ours was in a very nice position and handy for lots of good places to eat. The staff are first class and most helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they made our stay most enjoyable. The room that we had was of a good size and very comfortable but a little more attention to cleaning would not go a miss. Nothing too bad but a little more attention to deep cleaning would make it perfect. We would recommend this hotel and would book it again. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay a pleasure.
The building and hotel are in an old state, which was worrisome for me when I got there, but I immediately took notice of the cleanliness of the room. The toilet down the hall was clean on a daily basis and the shower/sink area inside my room was spotless.
The hotel staff was very helpful regarding information on directions. I suggest you find Phil, a bookstore cafe where you can have a great breakfast while enjoying a wide range of eclectic, new books. Next to the hotel itself is a record store, the same place where a scene from Before Sunrise was filmed. The staff is friendly and you could spend some time browsing through the huge collection.
I would suggest this place to friends but not those travelling alone. I was by myself and the secluded nature of the room felt very lonesome, even though I was there for only two days.
Just southwest of Vienna's historical center, the Mariahilf district is home to the festive, sprawling Naschmarkt, an open-air market selling fresh produce from around the world, exotic spices, cheese, baked goods, meats, and seafood. Al fresco dining ads to the fun. Mariahilfer Strasse, the city's main shopping street, forms the district's northern border.
