The staff was extremely helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there. One detractor is the breakfast - its not worth it. But, there are tons of restaurants nearby. Take the 4a to Karlsplatz. Plus, the Vienna dialect of German was interesting.
Me and my partner went to Viennna for 5 days in November 2013 for my 21st birthday. Hotel Congress is about a 30 minute drive from the airport by taxi and the journey was good. We arrived in the evening, our room was very clean and tidy and exactly as we expected, we asked at reception where we could get some food and they directed us to the nearby restaurants which were less than a 5 minute walk away. Breakfast was served between 6.30 and 10am and was restocked throughout, a buffet style layout with a selection of cereal, croissants, bread, cheese, fruit, eggs and meat, it was all very nice and well presented. The evening of my birthday we wanted to do something special, we asked Anna on reception to phone a restaurant and book a table for us, unfortunately they were full up, Anna recommended a different place to eat called Sky Bar, she booked the table and a taxi for us. The restaurant was beautiful, with views over the city, delicious food and a swanky bar! After a lovely meal, we spent the night enjoying expensive cocktails and it was better than we could ever have asked for. Anna also gave us directions and advice on where to go in the day time, we visited the nearby Belvedere Palace which was beautiful and also went to several Christmas markets and drank delicious hot, fruity rum punch! Overall a it was a fantastic holiday, a beautiful city and all the local people were so friendly! Would definitely recommend

The 3 Star Hotel Congress is within close proximity to Viennas major sights of interest; making it the ideal accommodation …More
This hotel is situated across the street from a main metro station which also has an airport (CAT) train. The CAT train makes getting to/from the airport a very easy experience. Hotel is also on the boundary of a nice park and all the attractions are nearby walking or metro.
It is a nice hotel, well maintained with a beautiful lobby.
If I were returning to Vienna, this is the hotel I would stay at. It is very nice, and it is near THE transportation hub.
This hotel is in an ideal position, within walking distance to many of the attractions Vienna has to offer and with an underground station just outside the hotel easy to get to any destination.
Our room, on the 5th floor, was excellent, very large and very nicely furnished with a large amount of storage and a very good bathroom. It was somewhat warm and we had the windows open for our entire stay otherwise very comfortable. Do ask for extra pillows as they are soewhat thin, unless you like laying flat!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast staff excellent. Breakfast was very good with a wide choice but unless it is included in the price of your booking is very expensive.
