Vienna: Hotel Am Schubertring, Mailbergerhof???

Will be in Vienna in mid-May. Have a reservation at the Am Schubertring for a great rate but am concerned whether the location is okay. Am considering the Mailbergerhof which seems a little more central. Realy wanted the Konig von Ungarn but they are full for some our nights. we like small hotels with some amenities, usually stay in 3 or 4 star places. Any thoughts on my choices or other ideas? Thanks so much

What do you consider amenities? In December I stayed at the Hotelpension Arenberg, small with 24 rooms, 4-star, queen-size bed, bathroom with bath as well as shower and toilet, balcony, home-made muesli, nice staff, 5-minute walk to Stephensplatz, 3-minute walk to Air Terminal (where buses from airport arrive) and 2 minutes to nearest U-Bahn. It is a Best Western but has the posh Vienna feel, but no Concierge. I paid about $50 for one but understand that in high season, it is more. Check nethotels.com for more information re your choices.

Linda,
Actually the Arenberg sounds like it would be great and I will check it out. Amenities ----well maintained and pleasantly decorated public areas, a small bar for a nightcap is nice but not a requirement, professional, helpful staff---rooms that are also well maintained and pleasantly decorated, a good mattress!!, a good size bathroom with a good shower. Not too much to ask for?????

The Arenberg has a small foyer/sitting room area but no bar. There are pictures of actors, conductors, opera stars on wall with signatures to the original owner.

Thanks, Richard. Think we may give the Mailbergerhof a try. I'm stuck at home outside of snowy Boston today so have plenty of time to work on some details of the upcoming trip! Thanks for your input.

Hi Maggie -

Not too crazy about the Mailbergerhof. We stayed at the Pension Christina near Schwedenplatz for the first 3 nights in Vienna, and then switched to the more expensive mailbergerhof as a "treat." Well, the Mailbergerhof did have nicer public rooms, but that was the only advantage it had over the Christina. The rooms were the same size. The furniture at the Mailbergerhof was worn and scratched (not antiques, mind you - just worn and scratched), while everything at the Christina was in good shape. The Mailbergerhof looks like it has a convenient location, but it's actually somewhat of a walk to any public transportation. The Christina, on the other hand, was right around the corner from a subway station and the tram that goes around the Ring.

And the Christina was about half the price.

I'm not saying that the Christina is the greatest place in Vienna, but I was very disappointed with the Mailbergerhof and I think you can do way better.
