I stayed here for an overnight layover and loved it. The hotel staff was very kind and helpful and the location is fantastic. Even though I was only in the city for one night, I was able to navigate around and explore quite a bit thanks to the location.
Breakfast is on the expensive side; however, it is a full buffet and it has everything you need to keep you going for many hours!! If you look for something cheaper, there is a very nice supermarket with great coffee facing the same square where the hotel is located and there is always the Oberlaa, a wonderful viennaise coffee shop!
The hotel is difficult to find since it's advertised with an address on a street where there is no entrance. Nonetheless, the main entrance is right in front of a beautiful fountain, across the street from the Kapuchinen's church.
We stayed for three days and went to a fantastic performance of Khovanshchina at the Vienna State Opera, and an excellent display at the Spanish Riding School (both pre booked on the internet). The Klimt paintings at the Belvedere are wonderful, and as a bonus there was a Monet exhibition as well. Good coffee houses for lunches and atmospheric Christmas markets, best visited in the evening; the largest one at the Rathaus was very good.
Arrived very early and we were upgraded so very pleased. The room was quite large and very nice, overlooking the main Strasse. It was very quiet so no problem with any noise. My only criticism of the room would be the very poor quality pillows. These were so flat you felt like you were sleeping on the mattress.
The turn down service was sometimes a bit hit and miss, wanting to turn your room down around 6.00 pm which is way too early when you're getting ready to go out. Be aware also that the "do not disturb" sign doesn't turn off with the Master switch, so we lost out on another occasion to have the room serviced. That was our mistake and the room hadn't been cleaned whilst we were out all day, so be aware of the "Do Not Disturb" sign.
We dined in Le Ceil and it was faultless. Could not recommend it hughly enough. The Wine List isn't cheap so be prepared.
Overall the hotel is wonderful, the staff attentive and friendly and the facilities great. Would have no hesitation in recommending.
The staff were very helpful and the hotel was close to all the major nearby sites such as parliament or the Hofburg Palace. The hotel was off the main road so there was no noise which is ideal for a good night's sleep. Couldn't recommend enough.
This small, friendly hotel was extremely well located with NICE, NICE, NICE people who couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel felt very European to this California guest which added to our experience. We feel we couldn't have found a more perfect spot from which to explore Vienna inside the Ringstrasse.
