Meininger Hotel Downtown Franz Vienna Reviews
Cozy Hostel Apr 06, 2015
There are three Meininger Hotels in Vienna, two of them are close to each other in the second district: Franz and Sissi.
I chose a room with a private bathroom for two nights in the Meininger Hotel Wien Downtown Franz. It is located in the Rembrandts Street close to the Rossauer Bridge. Going by the Danube Canal you'll get to the Schweden Square and from there to the Stefans Square and Graben, actually the city center.
In the restaurant they serve a buffet breakfast between 6:30 AM and 10:30 AM for a fee. There was not much choice for breakfast, some "bird" food like corns and flakes. Tables are connected in three rows, so there is no privacy, what is not surprising because this is primarily a hostel. Guests also sit and take their breakfast in a bar and at a table by the window next to the entrance. There is a guest kitchen where you can cook your own meal, which I didn't use. You can also use a washing machine and dryer. There is a free Wi-Fi access and only one computer near the bar and the reception.
This is a modern hotel that completely fulfill the needs of travelers. Everything in my room was tip-top. The staff were nice and very helpful in giving suggestions for things to do in and around the city.
I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to stay in a nice and clean hotel near city center for a couple of days in Vienna.

Meininger Hotel Downtown Franz Overview
The MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz is located in Leopoldstadt, Vienna’s second district, between the Augarten Park and the Danube Canal. A relaxed walk through the small alleys down to the Danube soon takes you to the famous ring road round Vienna's Old Town. St. Stephen’s Cathedral and numerous other points of interest in the town centre are easily reached on foot. Schonbrunn and Belvedere Palace are not far, either, thanks to good public transport links. The underground station Schottenring is close to the hotel: from here you can catch the U2, the U4, trams 1, 2 and 31 and no fewer than 9 bus lines. And for those who don’t like to wander far off: take a stroll through lively Leopoldstadt, past uncountable restaurants, the Karmeliter Market with its varied stalls and past the Vienna Criminal Museum to the Ferris wheel in the Prater. Your reward: an incomparable view of Vienna from above. From the outside the modern, fair-faced concrete building is already an impressive sight thanks to its functional design. From the inside the hotel offers finest Austrian 3-star standards on each of its seven floors. This property has provided all content and is solely responsible for its accuracy.
