As you’re considering choosing among the many discount hotels, Vienna and its many activities and events should be carefully weighed into your plans. Another thing to consider is the accessibility of your hotel to the area in which you’re most likely to spend time. Some choose discount hotels near the many historical sites, museums and concert halls. Others choose to stay near the beautiful valleys, beaches and natural hiking paths. While staying in one of the fine discount hotels, Vienna will undoubtedly charm you with its majestic setting, and intriguing ambiance.
From the Danube Valley to the Melk or Durnstein, Vienna is home to some of the world’s most famous architecture. Also, you’re bound to see many castles, wine-growing villages, monasteries, all minutes from most discount hotels. Traveling to Vienna is like traveling back in time. The landscape and scenery all capture the senses and may even bring out the poet in you!
From any of the discount hotels, Vienna offers the best in transportation. “Vienna's enviably comprehensive public transport system is one of Europe's finest. flat-fare tickets are valid for trains, trams, buses, the underground (U-Bahn) and regional trains (S-Bahn). You'll rarely have to toe-tap for longer than five or 10 minutes, and services run between 5.30am and midnight.
You can buy single-trip tickets from bus and tram drivers or ticket machines, and there's a range of passes available, such as one, three, and eight-day passes.
Getting around on foot is equally easy, as most 'must sees' are in the inner city (the Innere Stadt), and some main streets are pedestrianised. Cyclists can circle the city on the Ringstrasse bike path, or follow 700km (434mi) of bicycle tracks, including those along the banks of the Danube.
Driving in Vienna is pretty hairy, especially if you haven't experienced a city with trams before, and parking is prohibitively expensive. If money means nothing you can hire a horse-drawn carriage (fiacre) from Stephansplatz, Albertinaplatz and Heldenplatz at the Hofburg.” (From Lonely Planet Publications)
