Starlight Suiten Salzgries, Vienna…so-called suites. Not

The hotel itself was alright, nothing too fancy. It is at the center of the city and not too far (but then again, not too close either) to the main shopping area, bars and restaurants. It is not recommended for those who prefer to spend time in the hotel.

The rooms are…well…so-called suites.  However, this does not mean there is more space. The total space of the room (which consist of a living-room, bedroom, bathroom, working and dressing areas, minibar and microwave) is equivalent to to a deluxe rooms in some other hotels; hence in Starlight Suiten, it means a very cramped up room. So cramped that I have to leave my suitcase on the sofa, because they do not have space me to place it.

I used to be impressed with this hotel many years ago. My views have changed now.  If I visited Vienna again, I wouldn’t stay here again but would get somewhere closer to the action around Stephenplatz and a more comfortable hotel. This is the true truth. I say it as it is.
