Uncovering Europe's best budget hotels since 2001.

Expert reviews of cheap hotels in Vienna

Welcome to EuroCheapo’s guide to the best cheap hotels in Vienna and throughout Europe.

Since 2001 our editors have been visiting, inspecting and photographing budget hotels in central Vienna, always looking to recommend those that are of the highest quality and, if possible, have a touch of personality.

As a destination that attracts cultural travelers, Vienna is also, unsurprisingly, a class act when it comes to hotels, even of the budget variety. Our “Editor’s Picks” include a number of small, independently run hotels and pensions, most of which are quite affordable.
