Hotel Review: Hilton Garden Inn Vienna South


Hilton Garden Inn Vienna South
Hertha-Firnberg-Strasse 5, 1100, Vienna, Austria

Hilton Garden Inn is located a bit away from the city center next to Business Park Vienna. The hotel does provide a complimentary shuttle bus throughout the day (with varying frequencies depending on time of the day) between Business Park (about 1 minute walk from the hotel) to Vienna State Opera. The 2 main reasons we chose this hotel was that 1) we could use the shuttle to get to the city center and then walk to most of tourist attractions or use public transport once we were in the city 2) Very low points needed for the hotel especially for points + cash awards (10,000 Hilton Honors points per night or 3,000 Hilton Honors points + 32 Euro per night).

There was no walk-in shower but rather bathtub + shower. The bathtub was pretty high to get in and it seriously felt like an accident waiting to happen!!

Garden Restaurant

We had booked 2 rooms for 4 of us and both Karen and I have Hilton Gold and so all of us got complimentary breakfast. We had the breakfast both days in Garden Restaurant.

My Breakfast – Day 1

There was an ok selection of bread, juice, cereal, egg, meat for the breakfast buffet. There was also an omelette station which my parents always love.

Thumbs up:

  • Easy transportation to city center with complimentary shuttle with half hour frequency in morning and evening and hourly during noon.
  • Decent breakfast spread at the Garden Restaurant
  • Lots of dining options at the mall opposite of the hotel. There is also a very nice Billa supermarket in the mall which has really good selection of chocolates that we took as gifts for our folks back home
  • Excellent value with Cash + Points (and even just points)

Thumbs down:

  • Far away from the city center as well as both Vienna Hauptbahnhof and Vienna Meidling train stations
  • Far away from most Vienna attractions
