The Meininger City Centre Vienna is in a great location, close to Schonbrunn Palace and  a pedestrianised shopping centre. It offers a mix of private rooms and dorms.

Pension Mozart is half a mile from the Hofburg Palace and 1 mile from the city centre but with only 14 rooms it fills up quickly in busy periods.

Palace Hostel Schlossberge lies in green surroundings on Wilhelminenberg hill  with great views over Vienna and offers free internet and breakfast.  There’s a mix of dorms, twin and double rooms. The only disadvantage is that it’s over 4 miles from the city centre, although the journey into the centre is said to take 20 minutes by public transport.

The five star Imperial Hotel started life as a royal residence in 1863 but was transformed into a hotel for the 1873 World Exhibition.  If you’d like to stay in palatial surroundings, adorned with marble and chandeliers, this is the place to book.
