We stayed 5 happy days in this wonderful small hotel. From the first moment I was in love with the place. It is an old building with giant windows overlooking the volkstheater. Beautifully decorated, very bright. The room itself (we stayed in 26 on the first floor) was very big, bright unlike most hotel rooms. Very clean and well maintained.... More

Cute little pension - it used to be apartments, and the building is old, so the lovely high ceilings and french doors keep the style. The rooms are surprisingly large, and ours had a great view of the Natural History museum and some of the other beautiful surrounding buildings. It's not a luxury hotel, but it is comfortable, with a... More

The hotel is two minutes - literally - from the underground, right opposite the museum complex, close to a good variety of restaurants and within walking distance of many of the city's attractions. There was a rich breakfast of breads and rolls, cereals, yogurts, cheeses and cold cuts and the dining room is open until 10pm for self-service teas and... More

Very helpful staff when arriving late. Despite being an old building, very good renovated rooms - clean and functional. Excellent location - metro station across the road and 5 minute walking distance to Hofburg Palace. Will definitely stay again. Thank you.

The hotel is old and should be renewed. Generally it's clean, but I had to deal with a broken window, a foam mattress (when I asked for a normal bed), and a unhelpful and impolite owner, who only after a lot of negotiation solved my problems. You don't want these situations when you go on holidays. Other than that, the... More

While the hotel is in a great location, the quality of this place could only be called good if your standard is a bunk room in a youth hostel with a shared bathroom down the hall. Hotel is in a shared use building and our stay began by climbing 2 flights of dank stairs and then ringing a bell for... More

This is my last night here in Austria but I had to write about the excellent hospitality I received here with my family. The hotel is located perfectly in the center of the city. Within walking distance of the subway, the National History Museum and an excellent Italian restaurant that serves the best Tiramisu I have ever tasted. But the... More

This is like staying in a real mittel-Europa apartment building, and if you get the big double room on the third floor as I did you'll get an enormous room with french window doors onto a small balcony overlooking the Volkstheater and MuseumsQuartier, with parquet flooring and high ceilings. Right next to U-bahn (useful) and S-Bahn (one right beside hotel... 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.
