Tucked away in a well restored turn-of-the-century building in the student quarter of the Alsergrund, the cheeky three-star Hotel Bleckmann presents some clever extras that go above and beyond the hotel's three-star rating. This 27-room hotel won't win any awards for design, but with the Innere Stadt about a 15-minute walk away, the location is excellent.
Rooms, decorated in a conservative business hotel style with few bright colors, are outfitted with telephones, satellite television, private showers, and toilets. As the Bleckmann is on the traffic heavy Währingerstrasse, rooms on the street offer sound-proofing, and all feature a centralized air ventilation system that pumps fresh, diesel-free air throughout the hotel. Bathrooms are on par with the size of the rooms, although they're a bit dimmer than we like.
But there are caveats: the front desk closes at 9:00 PM, and the breakfast area is best described as frumpy. Breakfast itself isn't anything to write home about, and it will cost you an extra €8. And, for those who like to stay out of the heat, the Bleckmann's fancy ventilation system does not have air conditioning capacity.
Note: Wi-Fi isn't free here, though the hotel is a T-Mobile hotspot.

About the Bleckmann neighborhood
Located northwest of the Innere Stadt, Alsergrund is about a 20-minute walk to the center of the city. The neighborhood is home to the main campus of the University of Vienna, and thus teems with students, cheap restaurants, würstel stands and free cinema screenings. The Alsergrund is a good choice of neighborhood for visitors on a tight budget.
