Took an old friend visiting from the US here for a drink before dinner. The view was amazing and had been recommended to me by others. It was early so not too many people and we sat near the bar. Quick and attentive service. While not cheap, it was a nice place to take a friend and chat with a... More

On visiting the Sky Bar on Saturday January 15th for a quick drink before going elsewhere to dinner, entry was refused until we deposited our coats in the cloakroom at a cost of 2 euro each. Felt this was a total rip off. If they don't want coats inside they should provide the cloakroom free and allow people to tip... More

When we arrived, they refused to give us a table near the window because this table could accept 4 people and we were just 2 !!! A shame ! The service was done very slowly and was not friendly. Good red wine but...

We had a late meal here on a recent visit to Vienna. We agreed when we arrived that we would order quickly as the kitchen was closing soon. Once we had done so and ordered the wine it felt like we were being rushed out even though it remained open as a bar for several more hours. We had to... More

It is nothing special. You pay 4 euro to hang your coat (you have to or you're not getting in). You're then directed into the bar. What nobody bothers to tell you is there is a smoking section and a non smoking section. We were herded into smoking - which wasn't enjoyable.

Cocktails were much worse and when we approached the waiter we have not been treated very Professionally.. We had to pay the one we did not like... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
