The public areas of the Hotel Stefanie--the 18th-century wedding-cake exterior, the restaurant and terrace, the lobby--are textbook European charm. Strikingly pretty and classy. Very impressive. The rooms are clean, but tiny and dark. I also toured Prague, Budapest, and Frankfurt, and my room in Hotel Stefanie was not only the most expensive, but less than half the size of the... More

Spent three nights at this old but obviously recently-updated hotel with its clean red carpets, sparkly chandeliers, and old-world hospitality such as one should expect but rarely find in large European cities. Though just outside the "ring road", it was very easy to get to public transportation and/or walk to most places. We walked everywhere. As others have noted, the... More

This hotel was located close to the "Inner Ring" and all public transport (street trams, subway etc.) making it ideal for seeing the sites of Vienna. The room was large, clean and away from the front streets that can be busy and loud at times. The breakfast was as superb as many of the other reviewers have noted. Overall a... More

I liked almost everything: staff, location. The breakfasts are very good (but uniform) has its own parking lot - but by reservation (about 10 parking spaces) The room was cozy, but a little too small. Do not like it: in our room only 2 sockets. Garage tight fit for the "long" machines

This small hotel was exceptional value. It was beautiful, clean, the front desk personnel helpful and pleasant.

The personnel is very friendly and competent, the bellboy, an elderly gentleman with a smashing moustache is a monument at its own.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
