Why is it a good choice for cheap hotels in Vienna? Magdas is Vienna’s most unusual and exciting budget hotel.

Why is it a good choice for cheap hotels in Vienna? The Roomz is located a few kilometres from Vienna International Airport. It beats most other budget accommodations in Vienna in terms of quality and style. I think it is a great hub for creatives, young families, and business travellers. The rooms are designed in a feel-good colour scheme with modern bathrooms. The good public transport connections make up for the quite remote location at Vienna’s eastern fringe. You just take 2 minutes walk to tube station, and are in 20min at St. Stephen’s Cathedral in the city centre. The hotel’s location is also great if you rent a car, as there is cheaper parking around.
My tip: Make sure you get one of the many spacious rooms; have breakfast in a smug Viennese cafe in the city centre, as it more than outweighs the hotel’s extra breakfast rate; don’t rely on the hotel’s (free) WLAN.
Address: Paragonstrasse 1; A-1100 Vienna
Nearby attractions: Gasometer City Wien, one of Vienna’s most acclaimed residential urban design projects. Formerly spooky area which has turned into trendy urban community since 2001.

Why is it a good choice for cheap hotels in Vienna? The Motel One is another stunningly stylish budget hotel. It is close to the Western train station, which opens up access to Salzburg and the Alpine regions. The hotel has a reputation for being amazingly sound proof – you hardly notice that you are next to a busy train hub. Connections to the city centre are excellent: the underground right next takes you to the city centre in less than 10 minutes.
My tip: Inquire about location-specific noise levels and additional charges such as for WiFi use. There is an EUR 20 event mark-up during certain periods such as the run up to Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and certain congresses.
Address: Europaplatz 3; A-1100 Vienna Nearby attractions: Imperial Furniture Collection; Mariahilfer Strasse shopping high street;

Why is it a good choice for cheap hotels in Vienna? The Hotel Terminus is a good value for money place to stay. It is located in the bustling sixth district. You can walk to the city centre in around 15 minutes. The Terminus has clean no-frills rooms, noise proof windows and friendly staff. The breakfast is simple as you may suspect. I like the complimentary internet access.
My tip: Save on the complimentary breakfast in the hotel and enjoy a Wiener Frühstück (Vienna breakfast) in one of the Vienna coffeehouses nearby, for example Café Sperl (great selection of international newspapers).
Address: Fillgradergasse 4; A-1060 Vienna
Nearby attractions: Mariahilfer Strasse (large shopping high street); Naschmarkt; Museumsquartier
