The hotel is just ok, nothing ....
That's a good hotel, and that's it. Nothing special...
The attendant was a little bit arrogant, but that's ok. The furniture is ok, the location is very good, near the metro station. I don't have much to talk about this place, but I would say it is ok.

A bit out of the way - Dated d....
Very basic clean hotel. Seems to be family owned, with some of the attendant disorganization that goes with that. The first day staff opened the the door on us unexpectedly not once, but twice. One of the days the room was not cleaned, for some reason. Breakfast fair, but monotonous - the same thing every day, although it was filling and got me through to dinnertime. Our room was facing the side street and was very noisy, as it was summer, so we had to have the windows open. Every vehicle and even conversation seemed to be amplified, even though we were on the third floor. Bring earplugs! Fridge in room was filled with overpriced drinks - we bought our own from the stores down the street. Overall, this place is very basic, far from the best, but certainly adequate for the budget traveler. It is a bit of a step to walk to the main tourist areas, but everywhere is reached quickly by U-Bahn or tram, and it's probably better and cheaper being a bit off the beaten track as being in the melee at night, as I noticed beggars and undesirables coming out of the woodwork after dark in the Stephansplatz area, but the area around this hotel seems to be safe at night.

AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS
Not even sure where to begin with this place. Stayed here for 3 nights in July with a performance group of about 100. Not only were the hotel staff less than enthused to have 100 teenaged and chaperons in their presence, they were quite rude to even the adults in the group. we were told to get to our rooms as quickly as possible, hurry up and get out of the breakfast (which is a whole other story and a reason alone not to stay here) and yelled at for filling up a water bottle in the water filling machine? The rooms felt 1000 degrees once you actually made the extremely unpleasant hike up the horrific and dark stairs and down the dimly lit halls that seemed more bates motel than 3 star hotel. The beds were fairly uncomfortable and the rooms were in a generally inconvenient positioning. Due to the extreme weather with lack of AC(LITERALLY), opening the windows was a no brainer. But, we opened the windows only to find you can see right into the adjacent room (we actually played catch across the way, that shows the lack of privacy) Many of the rooms are positioned on the street corner and its inhabitants suffer from the screeching, unending noises of traffic on the street. And, even with the windows shut, you can hear the conversations from across the way. Needless to say, this was the worse place I've ever laid eyes on and i advise you to steer clear away from this place.

One Step Up on a Youth Hostel
Hotel Tabor should probably be torn down and replaced with an entirely new hotel. It is one step up on a youth hostel in terms of quality, provides poor value for money, and is the worst hotel I've stayed in for many years.
Plus points first:
- It is very clean. The old 60s bathrooms are spotless and bleached to within an inch of their elderly lives. Likewise the cheap scratchy sheets on the cheap single bed mattresses are clean (and indeed new)
- The location is okay. It's 25 minutes walk to the Stephansdom. That said it's on a noisy main road and the immediate area is grey and tatty.
- The building is old, the owner clearly spends nothing on refurbishments, the walls are paper thin, the room doors look like they could be kicked in by an athletic rabbit. The 14" portable TVs in the rooms are probably collectors items by now and worth more than anything else in the place. The carpets throughout remember the time Noah visited.
- the lobby, hallways and breakfast room are particularly grim. There are large metal doors which give the atmosphere of a prison. The breakfast room is airless, windowless, and has furniture in it that was already out of fashion around my mother's wedding. It is all desperately unwelcoming, ugly and basic.
- breakfast is dire. Every effort has been made to provide a small selection containing the Cheapest Of Everything. The "orange juice" machine dispenses water for the first 10 seconds followed by a dollop of squash. The coffee is undrinkable. It's so strong you could probably grease truck axles with it. Even the bread rolls are cheap and nasty.
- the hotel is unbearably hot in summer and noisy. There's no a/c, my room must have been hitting 30C, and when you open a window it's incredibly noisy. You're either facing a noisy main room, or a residential courtyard with all the associated noise. Forget sleeping.
- the staff are strange, unfriendly and try to get every penny they can out of you for extras. Think a camp Central European version of Little Britain's "Computer says No" if you ask for help with anything. Wifi is slow and at an additional charge.
For £65 a night you can stay in an IBIS where you will get a decent two star experience with a proper breakfast. For £75 you can have a Mercure, with fresh modern rooms, air conditioning, and an actual 3 star experience. There is *zero* reason to frequent this favoured hang out of elderly, poor tour groups from random distant countries, looking to relive being in a youth hostel before they die.
SUMMARY: Expecting to get a night's sleep is an absolute minimum for me in a hotel. This hot, dilapidated, noisy, weird old place doesn't even give you that possibility in summer. Avoid it.

Somewhat of a youth hostel for....
The location is the strong point for this hotel, altho we had good service. The building is old and in need of some upgrading. The breakfast was buffet and self-serve, basic. However! The clientele is definitely international and the proximity to public transportation is great (for Vienna). This is a basic pricepoint place. We had good service and all personnel were helpful (perhaps because we spoke German?).
