This classic hotel is well situated within walking distance of most sites in Vienna. My single room had a lovely balcony, but I found the bed to be rather narrow - a slightly bigger bed in the room would have made such a difference. Breakfasts are great with a good selection of dishes to choose from. I would definitely stay... More

Very nice hotel with great breakfast. Room was a bit small and also a bit outdated. The staff very helpful and nice, which made you feel very comfortable. Very easy to get to the important sights in the city with tram or underground.
