We were in Vienna with our teen aged boys and so rented an apartment suite at the Carlton Opera, where I have stayed previously (2007, 2008). The two bedrooms were bordering on huge, but with very little furnishing, so the beds seemed to float in all that space. But they we're comfy, the building was quiet, and we were able... More

We stayed in a two room apartment in this hotel for 3 days. One room was big together with the kitchen in the same area, no division. Even though the two big windows opened to the street, it was quiet. The other room was much smaller, and the curtains were not thick enough to darken the room. We traveled with... More

We stayed here for three days and were very happy. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. They helped us to book tours and concerts. The rooms are not very big but clean and comfortable and there is free coffee and wifi in the rooms. The hotel is also ideally situated for tourists visiting the opera house and other... More

The appartments are behind the hotel, with a separate entrance although check in and breakfast are in the main hotel. The appartment was big and clean and had a reasonable kitchen, two bathrooms, a single and double bedroom. The living space was dominated by the second double bed so there was no space to relax in really. The location wasn't... More

I stayed 10 days while on business in Vienna. The location is fantastic, very near to the opera, the Hofburg, the Naschmarkt and lots of restaurants. The room was kept very clean (although the shower could use more of a scrubbing), the breakfast was basic but plentiful and the staff was nice. The place was much less expensive than I... More

Perfect location for visiting museums and for Stadt Opera. Professional and friendly staff, good breakfast and comfortable room with interesting fixtures. The hotel also has a reasonable price parking facility.

We stayed 3 nights in one of the apartments in Muhlgasse (number 2304). This is a separate building from the main hotel (reached by a short covered outside passage). The apartment block itself is quite old and grand with a large stone staircase hung, bizarrely, with British coats of arms! The apartment is spacious and quiet and some rooms had... More

We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment on Muhlgasse. It was in a beautiful building. The rooms had high ceilings and were spacious and lovely. The beds were not exceptionally comfortable, but they were okay. The kitchen had totally new appliances and had sufficient plates, etc. The only real issue with the hotel was the temperature. We stayed there in February,... More

We had a simple, but rather spacious apartment on the 7th floor. There is a lift, of course (some reviewers apparently couldn't find it?). A bed, a table, a coffee table, a sofa, a desk, tv, wifi and a small kitchen. Everything you need, in fact. The price was right, with an adequate buffet breakfast included, and the location is...

Hotel in Vienna, Austria, displaying an elegant, yet familiar atmosphere. Fin de Siecle facade with art nouveau influences. Quietly situated, but only a 5 minutes' walk from the heart of Vienna. Located in the traditionally slightly "Bohemian" Freihaus district (Mozart's Magic Flute premiered there), and very close to the Naschmarkt market. Copious breakfast buffet; rooms with air-conditioning, bath/WC, direct-dial-telephone, cable-TV, minibar, free coffee and tea, and a safe. Free internet access in the lobby, as well as a WLAN HotSpot for notebooks. Family rooms and suites are available upon request. ... more   less
