Vienna - nice, quiet hotel recommendations

We would like to stay in a quiet place with nice staff working there. Would also like to be in a convenient part of town for our first visit to Vienna. Thanks for any advise.

We stayed at the Hotle city Central which is just outside the ring. A very short walk to the city center. Check it out on booking.com. Very quite, lovely staff and fabulous breakfast.

What are your dates and budget? There are honestly hundreds that would meet your criteria, so further specifics are appreciated.

Our dates are Aug. 8 for three days. Our budget is under $140. Thanks, I should have thought to give more info.

Hotel City Central looks very nice, but it seems they have a non refundable policy 128 days out from arrival, which is too strict for us.

Hotel Pension Suzanne? Inside the ring -- less than a block away from the Staatsoper. Super nice owners who often are working the check-in desk and breakfast. No a/c... so wouldn't recommend at the height of summer.

Hotel Austria is a little over your budget with breakfast, air conditioning (comfort room), and free cancellation - at about $168/night. But it fits the rest of your guidelines.

I have used Pension Wild and been very happy. It's very safe, located between the city hall and a major Gov't building, on a backstreet in a good part of the central city.

The following are suggestions based on rates I found on Booking.com:

Hotel Beethoven Wien - nice location near Naschmarkt

Hotel Spiess & Spiess - really quiet corner of Vienna with a subway stop right in front

Schlosshotel Roemischer Kaiser - in the First District!

Hotel Austria Wien - First District and breakfast!

Austria Trend Savoyen - a short walk to the center, great breakfast and behind Belvedere. Large rooms.

Based on location, excellent reviews on this Forum and Booking.com, we have booked 5 nights at Hotel Austria early Fall. We are pleased that they have air conditioning & breakfast included. Reviews have also mentioned quiet area & accommodating staff.

I LOVE Hotel Austria. It is close to St. Stephens, it is a smaller hotel with the most amazing hotel/BnB breakfast I've ever had. Don't immediately discard them for price. If you look at their website, they have what they call "budget" rooms. I think this happens fairly frequently, especially in Europe, where there are quirky rooms here and there that you wouldn't know about unless you contact them directly. I would email them directly and inquire about a budget room or state that you have a strict budget. https://www.hotelaustria-wien.at/en/ Everyone that I've recommended the hotel to has really liked it.

I have tried to contact Hotel Austria through their website email. They have not responded. I tried to contact them because it was not working to try to book online.

It is less expensive for the dates I entered, to book directly. But I like using booking.com, because I can keep track of many different reservations all in one place. Also, it gives me a sense of security (maybe a false sense of security) that the room type will be honored, etc. I don't know what other people's experience is with booking directly verses through booking.com, but I would be interested to know.

I just tried booking on their website for your dates and got all the way to entering my name and payment details before I stopped. Maybe try again?

It Was after entering the payment details that it would not continue. Maybe because my credit card expires in June before the trip, I don't know.

I would guess that the credit card expiration is the problem. I have booked directly with Hotel Austria twice, but via email. This is the email address I've used, office@hotelaustria-wien.at. They've always responded promptly. Keep in mind the time difference.

In addition to a possible issue with the card expiration date , a further possibility is the card being rejected due to suspected fraudulent activity . While things have loosened up over the years somewhat , posting a travel notification with your bank that handles your credit card may provide another answer . When I am booking hotels and travel arrangements for a trip , as I just did last week , I notified the banks that process my credit cards with a current notification preemptively , to forestall any potential issues .

As someone else mentioned, I would also highly recommend Hotel Pension Suzanne. It's in a fantastic location, close to the Metro and HO/HO buses, and easy walking to most of the sites. The room was great, the staff are wonderful and they serve a nice breakfast. They currently list a "Superior Double Room" at €109-189 per night.
