Accomodations in Vienna in Sept

I am going to be traveling to Vienna in Sept and only have 2.5 days in the city. I want to be as efficient as possible and find accomdations that are centrally located to major attractions ie museums and such, but reasonable as I will be traveling for a month. Any suggestions are welcome.

Wow!! That's the best the forum can do?

I usually don't mess with the Austrian forum but since you are not getting much of a response I have two suggestions:

  1. The K&K Opera next to the Opera House off Andrassy ut. (Yup, I know, but if you guys aren't going to be more helpful I think its a great suggestion)

  2. Go to Google Maps and type in Ambassador Hotel, Vienna. I'm not recommending the place but it is sort of a good center to begin looking from. Now just type "Hotel" in the search bar and all of the hotels in that general area will pop up. This is a pretty good centralized location on the pedestrian Kärntner Str. Just research the hotels close to that center point till you have one that meets your needs. I've stayed at the Astoria and it was a bit of a dump and I have stayed a little further away at the Imperial which was very nice.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Erzherzog Rainer in May 2014, and loved it. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from there to the Opera, so it's a little bit south of the Ringstrasse. There are more centrally located hotels, but this place was very reasonably priced and it is very convenient to public transportation (maybe a 7-8 minute walk to the Karlsplatz station), and only a 3-4 minute walk from the smaller Taubstummengasse station. The included breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had. It doesn't have air conditioning though, but they do have fans (we were very comfortable).

We have stayed at the Pension Pertschy, which is now called the Pertschy Palais (this forum won't allow me to post a link). The location is perfect. It isn't fancy, but it is clean and comfortable. I am not sure about AC, and you may need it in September. Check out TripAdvisor. It is my "go-to" source for information. I have found the "traveler photos" to be absolutely accurate. We always book directly with the hotel we are staying at. I think you get a better rate, are assigned a better room and I know from experience you get better service if some part of your plans change.

K&T Boarding house -- a long-time Rick favorite. Walking distance to Ring trolley, great hosts. Tina can give recommendations for eating and touring. And very reasonable cost.

We'll also be in Vienna in September! I booked the Pension Suzanne. Maybe not the cheapest, but literally next to the Opera. Much cheaper than any comparable place would be in NYC next to the Metropolitan Opera! PS: for those interested: I've also already got tickets for seeing Traviata at the State Opera - for prices I feel are fairly reasonable. Easy to book online.

I agree with the suggestion of Pension Suzanne, nice place, great location. Step out the door, turn left until you run into the main walk way Kärntnerstraße, one minuite or so, you'll see the State Opera (Staatsoper) to the left. Also in front of you is on Kärtnerstraße is Cafe Sacher.

All of those mentioned are very popular stops. I've been a K&T Boardinghouse fan for the last 15 years. Their new location is 1-2 stops from The Ring on the Metro and the subway entrance is just 50' from their front door.
The street outside is a pedestrian area with all kinds of shopping and restaurants.

We stayed at the Hotel Schweizerhof when I was in Vienna on a RS tour. It was good. My only advice to ask for fan it you think it will be hot.
