Alpha Hotel Vienna Reviews
great service and good value in central vienna Apr 25, 2010
I stayed here for two nights in may 2009 during my bank holiday break to vienna. This hotel was highly recommended by previous guests, and offered reasonable value in a good location.
To get to the hotel from the airport, i took the CAT(city airport train) to Wien - Mitte. From here i got the U-3 line to VOLKSTHEATER, then finally the U-2 line to RATHAUS. As the hotel is located on a quiet street, it isn't easy to find first time around as you exit the station. It is a couple of blocks across, and about half way down buchfeldgasse. Its really not much more than a five minute walk once you know where your going, and the hotel has a huge flag hanging over the entrance to help you find it.
One of the things that stood out about this hotel, was the warm welcome from the reception staff, and good service throughout my stay here. The friendliness of the staff creates a good atmosphere in the hotel. I didn't need to ask them for extra information, as i found vienna very easy to get around, either walking or using the efficient U-Bahn. But you felt you could ask for help if you needed it.
The room was very nice and clean. It is a little on the small size, however this isn't unusual for european hotels. For me the smallish room wasn't a problem being a single traveller, and not really requiring too much space, having just one bag, and a small backpack. Bathroom and shower facilities were good, and the room was well maintained.
Breakfast was included in the cost of my room. The restaurant is situated on the ground floor, past the reception desk. The breakfast available was a continental one, so you can expect the basic things like, breads, fruits, and cereals. The breakfast was acceptable, and will probably keep you going to lunchtime. Its nice to have something in your hotel before you set out for your days sightseeing.
I highly recommend this hotel, and would stay here again. You quickly realise once you get out exploring the city, just what a good location its in, and its this factor that makes it such good value. If you are travelling to vienna, make sure to consider this hotel.
