The Hotel had a perfect location only ten minutters walk from the Opera and also only five minutes from the subway and two minutes... More

This hotel is adorable - TINY rooms, but adorably decorated nonetheless. However, the walls are paper thin - our second night at the hotel, all we could hear from 11PM-3AM was a couple having sex extremely loudly. In addition, there is no free champagne. Maybe that is obvious to others, but to my group, we fully expected there to be... More

I chose Hotel Saint Shermin after reading the reviews online and was so pleased I did! Rooms were a nice size and beautiful interior design. Th comfiest bed/pillows/duvet ever! The location was brilliant, less than a 5minute walk from Karlsplatz metro station (30mins from airport via Wien Mitte). Very close to the Nachstmarkt, a great food market with lots of... More

We stayed in the room with the antler chandelier and it was lovely. Tons of room and pretty view. You feel as though you're staying in an apartment in Vienna which is kind of fun. The location was good, but a bit outside of the main ring, and in the cold of December, it became a bit of walk everyday.... More

Staff are very pleasant to deal with and also quite accommodating. I arrived pretty early in the day and they got me a room ready within 30 minutes. Quite close to Karlsplatz and the metro. The only comment I have is that if you have long legs the bathroom will be quite cramped.

Dear Kdadoodle, thanks for taking your time to send us some nice words. We do not promise a spa instead of a bathroom, but you are right, the bathrooms are small, but you will find enough space for all your belongings, but our hotel is located in an old building which makes it charming. Hope to see you one day... More

I had only one night in Vienna, drawn there by a classical concert at the Musikverein (highly recommended) and so was looking for a place to lay my head which was within walking distance from the venue and not too far from the main train station Hauptbahnhof. Hotel Saint Shermin proved to be the perfect choice; not only for the... More

Dear Farfalla, thank you so much for your very special comments. Our female guests will certainly agree with you and your experience on heels to the Musikverein! It is really a pity not having tried the breakfast, but if you will come back to see more of Vienna, please bring some more time with you to let us show what... More

The taxi driver had a bit of a challenge finding the St Shermin as it is on a very small street, and not well known. The hotel is on the first floor of another building and not easily visible from the street. However, once we got there, our stay was absolutely wonderful. We did not have the breakfast as there...

This is a delightful boutique hotel, beautifully furnished with character, spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds. It was amazingly quiet to be so close to the centre of Vienna. The breakfasts were so wonderful we never needed lunch and there was an honesty bar for a bedtime drink. The receptionists were all friendly, charming and extremely helpful with recommendations.

What's not to praise about the Saint Shermin? The room was exquisite and for being the 'small double' it was rather spacious with beautifully high ceilings, a most comfortable bed, and kitschy but cool decor. The bathroom was spotless upon arrival and it showed that every care was taken to keep this place immaculate. The emails between the hotel representative... More
