We were upgraded to a suite, which was awesome. One and 1/2 baths, separate living room, huge bathroom, I felt like I had my own apartment in Vienna. Not as close to the old stadt, but close to the Bellvedere Palace and St. Peters Church, and there is a fun brewery restaurant nearby. Close to public transportation to get anywhere. Very easy to get to the airport as the S bahn station is just at the end of the street which connects in one stop to the train to the airport.
Vienna is a beautiful city and most of the notable sights are concentrated in the centre, easily reachable by trams and metro, both close to the hotel. At check in, I asked if I could have a room with a nice view, and was given a room on the top floor with view towards some picturesque buildings and a historic theatre. Hotel is short walking distance from the Belvedere (palace and fort). Also close to a war memorial with large illuminated fountains, 10 minute walk to the main pedestrianised shopping area, and 15 minutes to St Stephen's cathedral.
The hotel is simple and unadorned and within easy walking distance of the centre of town. We walked to it from the CAT station, about 15-20 minutes away with hand luggage!
It is right next to Schloss Belveder, a must see for art lovers, and just a few steps from a guide book recommended Austrian restaurant in a beer cellar, which we sampled twice.
Breakfast at the hotel was excellent: choice, variety, flavour.
The bedroom was adequate but tended to overheat at night, so we opened the windows!
Where to start? This was our second visit to Vienna and after staying across the road in the Intercontinental the last time, it was always going to be different. But it was no disappointment the room was large, large enough for 3 or 4 if needed. The suite windows faced into the inner courtyard but I didn’t go to Vienna to sit in a room looking out the window we were off around the place.
Close to the Stadtpark and the Subway services you can get anywhere across the city in a few stops. Safe cheap and quick. Most of the guides overlook this service which is a great way to get around.
Room was clean and tidy, good size shower and wash area and the bedroom great too. The big lounge area in room really made it for us, not sitting on a bed when you’r in a hotel is a great nice to have, especially not no extra cost.
For those on a budget with children a good base you can even order Pizza or rood into your suite if you wanted. Great fun.
We took the slow train from the airport and after a 20 minute ride got off at St. Marx station on to the waiting 74a bus which took 2 minutes to the hotel. A bus ride to the city centre takes about 8 minutes and buses run every 10 minutes.The bus stop is about 20 metres from the hotel entrance. There are about 4 supermarkets within 100 metres if you choose not to eat in the hotel.
Check in was smooth and the suite we stayed on the 6th floor did not disappoint. We bumped into the hotel manager, Isabella, in the lift and she took time to advise on places to visit and best way to get there.
A well kept and clean hotel and would recommend for a visitor to Vienna.
Vienna’s third postal district east of the city centre has medieval origins and now features many important sights and embassies. Another much-visited attraction is a visually interesting housing development called the Hundertwasserhaus.
