Very nice small hotel. Friendly staff”

Kind and helpful staff, beautiful old house, location

I stayed in the Hotel Pension Baron for 3 nights. The staff is absolutely amazing, helpful and caring. The old house in which the hotel is located is beautiful, in particular the wooden steps to go to the second floor is amazing. The room is clean and comfortable. The mattress good quality. I had a problem with the door of the bathroom but was solved soon. The television plays only channels in German language. The breakfast is quite basic but good.

Good decision”

It is a very nice little hotel with a unique design making you feel majestic. The room was nice and cozy, had a nice view on the Votiv church and was held in our favourite colour purple. The bed was quite comfortable as well, there is a TV and even a little fridge. The location of the hotel is still pretty much the city centre and it is easy to walk around or take the metro to anywhere. We totally recommend this charming hotel for a weekend gataway in Vienna.

Good location, clean, value for money”

The hotel was located at an old building but facilities and furniture were new. It had all the basic bathroom facilities needed - shampoo, shower gel, towel, hair dryer. Bottled water in the room was priced at 3.50 Euro each. Good bed. Pillow was okay. Not air conditioned but we were there end of May so the wind was cooling and we had the windows opened for ventilation. Hotel provided 2 standing fans in the room. Located about 3-4 mins walk from the nearest tram station which we took frequently to the city centre. Some days we also walk to the city centre - about 25 - 30 mins walk. Staff at the counter was wonderful but the staff is not there 24 hours. Guests may have to make special arrangements for check in after staffed hours. We were allowed to check in early when we arrived at about 11am. There is a pharmacy, some cafes and restaurants few doors down from the hotel. The only cons of this hotel is that there is no escalator thus not wheelchair friendly.

Comfortable, Classy Hotel in Great Location”

Location, decor, comfortable rooms

This hotel is perfect for visitors who want a little traditional Viennese charm; it's located in an ornate building near the University and is full of dark wood, marble stairs, and classy decor, making you feel a bit like you're in a noir film. The rooms are on the small side, but comfortable and stylish, with great views. Wifi is free. The breakfast is simple but good, although the selection of cold cuts, spreads, and boiled eggs is not really worth the 10 euro price tag, especially not on a street with dozens of cafes offering cheaper deals. The staff were brilliant, able to answer any question and make arrangements for guests.

Good Location, 5 mins walk from Schottentor Train Station or 1 min from the tram station. Walkable distance to the central area. A bit drawback is that there’s a few stair before accessing to the lift, and there’s no lift inside the hotel.

Price and location”

For the price this property is very good value and the location is excellent. Room was comfortable and reasonably spacious and we had a nice view of the main street. Staff were rather indifferent to our presence and even a slight smile might boost their service level. Would stay here again if back in Vienna.

Cautiously Recommended ”

The hotel is barely convenient and well-located, only a walking distance from all city landmarks. Unfortunately, it’s a bit noisy during the day due to the dense traffic around the hotel. Staff members are cool and efficient although they forgot to answer my request of putting a little “Happy Birthday” note in our room since we came to Vienna to celebrate my wife’s Bday :-(

Great location near the west side of the ring road. May be a problem for sensitive sleepers as there is street noise including trams directly in front of the hotel. But that’s what you get if you want to be near the city centre. Fans available, no air conditioning but we visited in October so room temperature was not a problem. Good size room for an older building. Staff helpful.

Great location but please buy new mattress!”

The location is great, staff very nice and polite and the room was very clean. I booked the single room and the pillow and mattress in the bed were very uncomfortable. I think the mattress must be very old and used. Also, no free water, no coffee no tea facilities as promoted on the booking channel. Room very small.

When I complained that the hot water in the shower only lasted for 20 seconds then reduced to only a a few drops, the receptionist said she would look into it ,I had a cold shower. Later that night it was the same,I asked her to come into my room, she did so turned on the tap for 10 seconds and said 'see it works' she never once said "I am sorry sir would you like another room' or get a plumber- her attitude was horrid and I had 4 cold showers.

Extremely bad experience of an accommodation deal ”

The accommodation is totally different with how it looks like in the pictures. Once you arrive and you see the pension and the rooms in reality, you get so upset, because it’s much worse than how it looks like in the pictures. You will try to understand why there is so big difference between what you expected and what you got and how you did not understand it from the pictures. What we saw in their website was totally different by the reality. By the seeing the picture of whole the building in their website you might think that it is a big hotel pension. But the pension is a very small part of the building. The pension is very old and not really well-maintained. The walls in our rooms (107) had major big cracks everywhere. Moreover it were many marks of dirts everywhere and it was really in need of renovation. The floor was also damaged and needed a fixing as well as the walls. The shower was not properly functional. Not a good water pressure and the upper part felt down on my toes

Nice staff, outdated, cramped & hot room”

Pros: location was just outside the busy tourist section & we went in summer so not crowded by college students. Front desk lady was very nice Cons: hotels main entrance on 2nd floor, had to walk up dirty stairwell or outdated lift to get there. Room was tiny, had no AC (I should have known from booking) offering a tiny floor fan that did nothing to remove the heat & humidity of the room even with the windows fully opened. Bathroom was outdated and we were given minimal TP. Bed itself was ok, however, I realized there was only a thin sheet between us and the mattress. The white sheet was clean BUT there was no mattress cover or mattress pad which thoroughly grossed me out. I travel a lot and one critical thing I look for when traveling is white sheets and some form of mattress cover between the mattress and sheets to ensure sanitation & cleanliness. Would never stay there again
