Vienna airport transfer

Hello there. I will be arriving at Vienna at around 9.00am. We have 3 ppl and 3 luggages. We are thinking to take a taxi from the airport to our hotel where it is located by the Danube river. May I know how much roughly a taxi will cost? Do I need to book in advance? Any other airport transfer that you can recommend?
Thanks!

Ask your hotel what fare is. They should know

Book a taxi in advance for a flat fee (approx. €35), e.g.:
https://skytaxi.co.at/en/ (don't enter the date in American format!)
The driver will wait for you in the arrival hall, bearing a sign with your name.

If you want to go by public transport (€4.20), take an S7 train to "Praterstern", change to metro U2 (purple line), and go to "Stadion" (take exit „Stella-Klein-Löw-Weg"). From there it is about a quarter of a mile to walk to the hotel. It is easy to find, but mind that the only access to the hotel is via a bridge. (S7 trains run every half an hour.)

Normally, I always recommend using public transport, but in this case, attributable to the unique location right at the river, I am inclined to favor using a taxi.

Actually, the Danube does not run through Vienna, but well to the north of the city. The only hotel on the Danube is the Hilton, so not that common at all, Joe.

To the OP, a pre-booked taxi will be 32 Euro. I use airport driver. A taxi upon arrival will be about 55 Euro.

Hi wmt2, u mentioned 4.2€ by public transit. Does this price include both the s7 train and a single Metro trip?

What Emily wants to express is the fact that the Danube river, albeit flowing through Vienna, does not touch the historic city center (1st city borough). This is different to Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade.

...and, therefore, why there are practically no hotels located on the Danube.
