Very nice building. The lobby leads into a riad style courtyard with the rooms on several floors overlooking. Spacious and comfortable room with good retro furniture. Nice bar/restaurant serving good Philippine food. Nice staff. Lively area but quiet in the evening.

We stayed 8 days in this hotel for a business trip. Usually this would be an exhausting experience but here we felt home and comfortable enough to recharge our batteries. We liked what they did with the place, mixing traditional and modern styles. There is a restaurant offering great food and they sometimes open their yard to local initiatives. This... More

Booked this hotel based on other reviews and it exceeded our expectations. The room was very comfortable and clean. In fact, much cleaner than at 5 star hotel we stayed in while in Malta. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was very good and there was plenty to choose from, and the buffet was kept well stocked at... More

We booked this hotel at the last minute, because we wanted to be near the Museumquartier, where we wanted to check some exhibitions. Although the pictures looked a bit nicer than reality, this is a nice hotel. Rooms and bathroom were clean enough and nicely furbished (although the carpet in the living room may be replaced - maybe it is... More

Hotel am Brillantengrund is a comfortable accommodation in a quiet side street with easy access to central Vienna and the West Bahnhof. Andrea, who tends the front desk, is an exceptional receptionist - friendly and helpful., even to the point of searching in her purse for cold medication for us. The rooms are on the small side, but ours sported... More

We chose this hotel based on other reviews and even if it wasn't a bad experience, there were several things that disappointed us. On the good side, the location is very good and the building is really charming, specially the inner patio. The breakfast also is pretty good yet if you dare to ask for anything to the personnel (like... More

I chose this hotel mainly because of its location in the 7th district of Vienna, which is one of my favorite districts in the city. Having lived just around the corner from the hotel in Westbahnstrasse for many years in the 90's I wanted to experience the intimacy of a small hotel in a familiar neighborhood. My brother who lives... More

Living in Budapest, we just went to Vienna for an overnighter to meet up with a friend who was ending her river cruise there. It was only by chance and luck that I found this hotel. The location is excellent. It is close enough to the West train station, making it an easy walk. The room was spotlessly cleaned and... More

The breakfast experience is one of my favourites so far, the art and attention to detail gave a wonderful experience. It has been designed with heart and flair. Stay here, the style of rooms is quite retro, I had a really great sleep and the hotel lobby is so trendy everyone just chills out after breakfast.

This is a nice little hotel at a good location. Nice, clean rooms with a small kitchenette. A prior reviewer complained about sheer curtains - wrong: the windows have the typical German built in shades which can totally darken the room. Cute courtyard with an attached funky little bar (where you can get ice cubes) and a plain small restaurant... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
