All the Answers to
your frequently asked
  • Is it safe to drink the tapwater?
  • Yes, viennese tap water comes directly from the mountains. Try it, it is very good!
  • Is there a public phone?
  • For quick calls you can ask at the reception, for longer conversations we suggest you get a headset from us and use one of the free Surf PC's together with skype. For use with phone cards you can find a Public Phone two Blocks from here - check out our Map for more Information.
  • Can we store luggage after checkout?
  • Yes, we have free lockers on the groundfloor. You will need to insert a 2 euro coin that you get back after returning the key!
  • Nearest post office?
  • In the Westbahnhof Trainstation - opening Times are 7am - 10pm on weekdays and saturday/sunday 9am-8pm.
  • Shop opening times - is there a nightshop?
  • Shops in Vienna close at 7pm during the week, on Saturdays till 6pm. On Sunday they are closed.
    On the mainstreet towards the Westbahnhof there is a tad expensive turkish shop with drinks and food (check our Map) that is open a bit longer, in the Westbahnhof you can find the "Merkur Mini Market" that is open till 11pm.
  • What about Breakfast?
  • The Breakfast (served from 7:15 am to 10:30 am) is not included in our price because we want to give you the choice to go and have breakfast in a bakery (Vienna style) or make your own in our guest kitchen. Ours is a good option for a small budget. check out the prices on top of the opening right to the reception.
