The hotel needs some improvements.

The shower flow was very low, and the bathroom towels were very small. The staff at the desk were friendly, but the staff at the breakfast were not very helpful.

Sissi-Fans get ready! The MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi


During her lifetime Sissi was revered and admired by the Viennese, because the beautiful empress brought a touch of glamour and elegance to the stuffy society of the imperial court. She was an eccentric opposite to her husband, the rational Kaiser Franz Joseph I. Still to this day the charm of Empress Elisabeth of Austria is present in Vienna and the detailed interior design of the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi is a worthy monument to her. Everywhere in the hotel you can see playful accessories, fun details and romantic pictures reminiscent of Sissi’s relaxed elegance.

MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi: Always worth a visit


Families on a big city tour, business travelers on business trips, bowling clubs on a club trip or backpacker tourists on an interrail tour. MEININGER receives them all in rooms with modern facilities with affordable single and double rooms, family suites and shared rooms. The central location is also a good reason for an overnight stay in the MEININGER Hotel Downtown Sissi. The relaxed MEININGER atmosphere is included. This makes city breaks fun!

Leopoldstadt has several attractions to offer: city break travelers can set out from MEININGER to the Prater amusement park and take a ride on the ferris wheel or let themselves be swept along in the colourful hustle and bustle of the Karmelitermarkt. Both can be reached on foot from the hotel.

When the business trip appointments and meetings are over for the day, business people can relax in the MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi lounge and play a game of pool or drink a cocktail. Those guests who have to catch an early flight can have a delicious breakfast from 6:30 am. 

For a family holiday MEININGER hotel has private shared rooms with cots available. After a comfortable night parents and children can take a fun ride in a horse drawn carriage or visit the Sissi Museum at the Hofburg. 

Slightly outside of Vienna, but only 20 minutes away from the hotel, is the summer residence of the Royal Court, Schönbrunn Palace –a genuine highlight for tour groups. With affordable offers for tour groups over 12 people and modern shared rooms MEININGER is especially popular with large groups.

MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi- Our Location


Discover our neighborhood in Vienna Downtown


MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Sissi is located in the northern part of Vienna´s 2nd district, known as Leopoldstadt, and just south of MEININGER Hotel Vienna Downtown Franz. We have great links to public transport here, with Taborstraße undeground station just a 5 minute walk from the hotel entrance!

Travelers might like to check out the beer garden nearby called Schweizerhaus, which has a historic, cosy feel based on its 19th century beginnings. You can also try some delicious Viennese cuisine and there is an outdoor seating area if the weather is good too! 

Very close to this is Viennese Giant Ferris Wheel, which is a must-see if you are a family with kids. Built in 1945, with wooden compartments and a great atmosphere around this fairground ride, it is an essential part of a day out in this neighborhood. The Prater Amusement Park, where this ride is located is open 24 hours and has so much to see and to do for kids!

For those adventurers who want to go out and let their hair down, why not pop just outside Leopoldstadt, across the Danube where there are some fantastic bars and clubs to experience.
