        Excellent hotel, pretty good location and spotlessly clean. The breakfast buffet was delicious and the atmosphere very nice. Very friendly and helpful stuff.

      • Older travelers

        The hotel was very nice, the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast which was included was very substantial and nice. The location was very close to the underground station and a short distance walk to the Opera House.

        I thought the staff in the restaurant that is connected to the hotel were very unfriendly and disinterested in us. I feel also the location description could be made clearer as they do not use the street name of the hotel and it was very confusing and we had to ask a lot for help.

        We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Erzherzog Rainer. The location is terrific -- just a short walk to trains and trams if you need them, but perfect for just walking where you want to go. The room was very clean and the bathroom was very well appointed. We were also very pleasantly surprised by the sumptuous breakfast buffet.

        Friendly staff and nice breakfasts

        The room we stayed in was very small, and due to the weather and no air- conditioner it was rather hot at nights even with the window opened.

        There is nothing special about this hotel, bot i can say that the staff and waiters services is good and they do smile.

        A well located hotel on a very frequent tram line to get you into the city centre via the Opera House. Good restaurant.

        Room was at front of hotel and had double glazing which did cut out a lot of the street noise. However you are still aware of the tram rumble.

        Stayed there between Nov 2-7, 2010. The location is excellent, just 5 mins walking distance from U-bahn station, 10 mins walking distance from the night market, 15 mins walking distance from major shopping area. Basically I did not take any public transportation during my stay, I could walk to any major sightseeing locations I wanted. Erzherzog Rainer's staff was so friendly, and of course their breakfast, plus the wonderful weather these few days - these all made my stay in Vienna much better than I expected. Seriously I didn't want to come back to the U.S. :)
