Stopped on business, great location for the Vienna Centre. A little out of the way for the city itself, but a €20 cab ride is a small inconvenience for stopping in such a great hotel. Staff were great, room was amongst the best I've stopped in, and the food was good. Excellent views over the city from the huge windows. All in; top notch hotel.
I have stayed in Best Western hotels in various countries and this one is up with the best of them. It is located in a very quiet road (so a good nights sleep) but only a 10 minute walk from Herrengasse metro stn. (turn left from stn exit walk 100 metres then turn right for another 100 metres, cross the road and walk down hill and hotel is about 150 metres )
The hotel is very clean, bright and modern. Rooms are spacious with seating and beds are comfortable and bedding is crisp and white.
For attractions just head back to Herrengasse metro. Walk past stn. Turn right will take you to Michealplatz with the Spanish riding school (book in advance if you want to see show or exercise/ guided tour).
Turn left past stn. and you come to Graben street and St. Stephens cathedral.
I would recommend the guided tour of the magnificent Opera House. If you are lucky like me you will see and hear the orchestra and players rehearsing for that nights performance.
Schonbrunn palace is a 20 minute metro ride away (Schonbrunn stn on U4 line is 300 metres walk to palace) so no need to buy expensive coach trip.
The RINGTRAM is a good but expensive (8 euros) way of getting you bearings as to where a lot of the main sights are.
We stayed in a standard, or classic, room which was modern, comfortable and spacious. It is easy to reach from the airport by taking the S7 train; the hotel is a few minutes’ walk form Praterstern station. It only takes 15 minutes to walk to the centre of the city; or there are 2 underground stations nearby. We found the transport network easy to use. The area around the hotel was OK, but immediately outside Praterstern station felt unsafe at night.
The breakfast was great; it is all you could want, with lots of choice of fresh food that was constantly replenished. The staff were all helpful and friendly.
It was the care to detail throughout that made this hotel special; from the cleanliness, decoration, comfortable outdoor area, and free wi-fi in the room, to the standards of furniture and fittings in all areas.
We stayed for 7 nights and would be happy to stay here again.

What can I say except for wow. A truly amazing hotel that made a beautiful city even more enjoyable. We booked the privilege room which was very modernized and included the mini bar for free (which I didn't know before booking, a nice surprise). The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. WIFI signal is strong and speedy and the location of the hotel couldn't be better. The only minor complaint I would have is that the walls are a little thin in the rooms; with that being said, we only heard people out in the halls and it never was an issue when it came time to sleep.
