Discover our neighborhood in Vienna city center

Definitely! You'll find the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz located in the northern part of Vienna's 2nd district, known as Leopoldstadt. It's right next to the beautiful Danube Canal which separates this neighborhood from the city center and the Alsergrund district, something which will make your stay - whether it's a quick or a long one - super convenient.

Also, from the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz you can easily reach Vienna Main Station which is just 10 minutes away via public transport and you can be at VIE Airport in around 30 minutes.
Brace yourselves because there's plenty to choose from! Check out some great monuments and landmarks, including the Vienna Crime Museum and the Kunst Haus Wien-Museum Hundertwasser which is devoted to the work of artist and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Have a look, among other things, at his innovative graphic designs and paintings displayed there.

Are you curious to learn how the famous Empress Sisi used to live? Then, how about a visit to Schönnbrunn? Stroll around the beautiful palace and its big outdoorsy space via the U4 line-the station is only 5 minutes away from the hotel-in just 15 minutes. Afterwards, you can relax by walking along the Danube Canal, where you'll find numerous bars and restaurants, whether you are looking for some late-night delicacy or a refreshing cocktail. Just keep in mind that the bars and restaurants, there, are only open during the summer season.
Traveling to Vienna with family, friends or by yourself? We've got you covered! You'll certainly find out that the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz is a great starting point for your adventure, no matter what kind of traveler you are. You'll definitely enjoy the green scenery of Wettsteinpark and Augarten park from either side of our hotel. The latter is, also, home to a royal palace as well as to the historic Vienna Porcelain Manufactory.

There's plenty of things to do and we're super well-connected: there's a number of subway stations nearby, including Roßauer Lände and Schottenring. Of course, your Vienna tour can't be complete without visiting the Belvedere Palace and its gorgeous garden area. And if you're just in the mood for a serene walk through the botanic garden or a visit to the stunning Gustav Klimt Exhibition inside, we highly recommend both!
You can check in at the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz from 3 PM and check out until 11 AM. For €15 more, you can use your room until 2 PM (only possible for private rooms).
Absolutely! There's a secure paid parking garage for you to use on-site. Just make sure to reserve your desired parking space in advance because there's only a specific amount of parking spots available.
Nothing excites us more than being part of your family's travel memories!
Our private multi-bedded rooms for up to 6 people are big enough to have everyone sleep in the same room. Baby cots can be set up on request. Did we mention they are on us.

FAMILY DISCOUNT-only available on our website*
> Save 15% on rooms & enjoy our kids' breakfast special
> Free breakfast for children up to 6 years

*The discount will be applied automatically during the booking process and is valid for all families traveling with at least one child younger than 12 years.

Imperial lodgings
at MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz

Since imperial times Vienna has been the cultural and political centre of Austria. The emperor Franz Joseph I, consort of legendary empress “Sissi” Elisabeth, resided and ruled here in the 19th Century.

In contrast to his capricious wife, Franz was more sober and considered and ruled with an even hand. This “imperial straightforwardness” can be seen in the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz. The linear architecture of the modern building combines with the harmonious interior. Comfy chairs and a large Franz Joseph mural emphasise the cosy features.
