We had chosen this hotel for its pool+terrace with the intention to relax, basking in the sun, after several days walking in Budapest and Vienna. But unfortunately, we were kind of fooled by the hotel's pictures, because you hardly get sun at the pool after noon : the whole area gets in the shade of the building ! What a disappointment as we checked in at ... 3pm !
Then, all the other inconvenients of this hotel pop up :
- it's really isolated, in the middle of a not-so-great area, with no nearby cafes or restaurants : so need to get a cab (return cost 30€) to go back to city center
- Wifi fee : yes !! Hilton dares charging you for in-room wifi while even 1* pensions offer it for free nowadays
- surprising choices for the room at this claimed level : WC is not separate, soundproofing is not great (you'll likely hear your neighbors), no second door to improve isolation from noise coming from corridor, no curtain to separate beds in what is presented as a family room, and speaking about curtains they hardly block the light so bring your mask
- breakfast buffet super expensive : 19 or 26e ! Rather grab a cab to go to Vienna center and enjoy a cheaper brunch
To stay on a positive note : yes fortunately, the rooms themselves are spacious, comfortable and clean, as you would expect from such a hotel chain
But overall, apart from someone attending a tradeshow at the nearby Wien Messe, maybe, I don't see who I could recommend this hotel to
