Just right in all important respects. Staff are attentive, smart and confident. Excellent location close to everything but amidst locals, virtually no silly tourists around. I hesitate recommending it too highly because I don't want it to be sold out when we book next... It has to remain a secret! This is written by an expatriate Viennese and I declare... More

The hotel is beautiful, rooms are spacious. The receptionist was super nice, she helped us with all the information, places to go etc. The breakfast is okay but you can order what you want and they will make it for you. The omelette here is delicious. Had a good experience.

Highly attentive, helpful and very accommodating. Room five was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and the waiting staff smart, quick and friendly. In the evening the bar is very relaxing and quiet. Feels like a family. Full marks all round.

The hotel is in a very old and a beautiful building on a quiet side street yet centrally located and within walking distance to the museums and sightseeing. Our room was on the first floor and accommodated 3 adults. We had a super comfortable king size bed (with great quality sheets) and we requested an additional sofa bed that was... More

The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of many museums and galleries in an interesting district with good restaurants (reliably ranked on the hotel website). The breakfast was superb, both for my carnivore husband and for vegetarians like me, served buffet style in an airy and vibrantly decorated suite of large and smaller rooms. The breakfast also includes clearly... More

The staff are helpful and efficient, our room was large, well and stylishly equipped, and immaculately clean, the bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the breakfast excellent: a... More

Stayed as a couple for a weekend in Vienna, having booked as part of a flight+hotel package on BA. We arrived late at night and didn't think much of the entrance to the hotel but what we found as a lovely historic building, clean simple room of average size and wonderful service - from reception check in to the lovely...

We stayed here for a week and had a great stay. We had a junior suite, so it was very spacious with comfy chairs and a desk. The staff are very cheery and helpful- organising a birthday cake for my husband's special evening was not a problem for them. Breakfast is very good- although given the reviews from others, I...

This hotel is a gem; not just the bounteous breakfast, lovely lounge area and beautiful rooms with very comfortable beds, but the staff couldn't be more kind, helpful and accommodating. I travel globally and frequently, and this hotel rates as one of my favorites. It's also in a cool area with lots of young artistic types and Ulrich's, a nearby... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
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.
