“Perfect stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We stayed here for four nights over Christmas. The pension is in a beautiful old building in the centre of the historic part of the city. Everything is close by - the main attractions, the shopping streets, restaurants, the U-Bahn… The pension itself is quite small, with only 9 rooms, but it had all we needed, and everything was just perfect. The room we had was facing the street, and from the window you could see the old buildings across the street, lovely Christmas lights and could hear the horse carriages going by.

The room was well equipped, with a very large closet, (which also had a safety box and a small fridge inside it), a good sized bathroom (with a bath tub) and a comfortable bed. It was very clean and warm, and the heater on the bathroom wall was excellent for drying our clothes (it rained almost every day during our stay).

The breakfast was good, and we enjoyed eating it in our rooms (in bed!). The staff were very friendly, and on Christmas Eve there was a knock on our door. “Merry Christmas!” and we were given a box of chocolate and two angel figures. So very kind of them and unexpected, but only something you can get staying in a special place like this.

Thanks for the perfect stay.

You can't beat the location for this centrally located small B & B. Clean, spiffy modern rooms. Large bathroom. Nice service. We stayed in the small double and got an excellent rate. They accommodated our late arrival time and held our bags the last day we were there. Our stay was in early March which I guess is off-season and got a great deal 109 euro per night. Our room did not have a view but it was quiet.

We recently stayed at the pension a und a for two nights. The pension is hidden in an old building in Habsburgerstrasse. You go up in an old elevator to Floor M and there it is. The service is excellent and the receptionists were extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in the private suite which was bigger than some apartments. We had our breakfast in our apartment. The pension is close to all the shops like Louis Vuitton, Dolce and Gabana etc. There are ample restaurants to choose from in the area, but we enjoyed Ilona Stuberl in Braunerstrasse 2.
i would recommend this pension anytime to young and old. It was really the best place to stay.

Room Tip: If you want to splash some cash, go for it.

Very helpful staff who went out of their way to accomodate our late arrival (arrange private pick-up which is €34 rather than the c. €41 flat charged if you get a taxi at the curb). We stayed in the apartment (Private suite) which is very large, and nicely fitted out, all seems brand new. Large kitchen & 6 seater dining room table. Equipped with microwave & Nespresso coffee maker. Huge flat screen TVs in bedroom and lounge. Friend slept on comfy pull-out couch which was nicely prepped for her. Daily cleaning service. Lots of windows. No Breakfast room, which is great as you just go and grab your breakfast and take it back to your room, so breakfast in bed at no extra cost. A bit of noise in the mornings as people check out etc, as bedroom in suite close to reception, but very mangeable. Reception is not manned 24 hours, but they manage it well (i.e. for later arrival they arrange taxi pick up and we left our luggage behind on last day after we checked out and they just gave us a key so that we could easily get back in, in case no one was around).
Fantastic location. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Private Suite (Apartment) highly recommended.

When we normally go tp vienna, we always stay in hotels "old style". This time my husband decided to try this pension set in an art deco building.
Everything was superb. Modern rooms, very clean bathroom, efficient staff and unbelievable location.
We were asked if we needed anything printed, a car for the airport organised, and above all an extensive plan if our morning do that we could make the sirport on time.
I would definitely recommend and go back

Location is excellent, close to Stefansplatz, Lipazzaner Riding school, the Hofburg and the shopping area. Also wide range of places to eat nearby.
We stayed in the suite which was large, spacious and very comfortable. Would have been great to be able to stay for a full week as it had its own kitchen, fridge and dining area. All very clean and also had a large bathroom.
Range of food at breakfast was great, we just helped ourselves and then ate in our room.

We spent four nights here in September of 2012, and loved the place.

However, you wouldn't know how wonderful this place is from the outside. There were two little signs, posted on a building where the pension shares rooms with several other businesses. There was no further indication that inside was a delight of Vienna.

After finding the doorway, and hobbling up the antiquated elevator, a bright red door opens onto the lobby (where brunch is served daily, no less). We had reserved the largest of the suites, and were shown the way (after a mere twenty steps) to a suite that would have gone for much more than the price we paid if it were found in one of the major hotel chains.

The suite was full functioning, with no defects in neither the kitchen nor the large bathroom.

As for the location? It's merely 100 yds to the primary shopping district in Vienna, and walking distance to most of the major attractions, as well as the metro station, that can get you anywhere else you wish to go.

The service was okay, with highs and lows, depending upon who was at the desk. We did have a problem getting clean towels after two days in, but other than that, nothing else really stood out.

Ultimately, if I were to ever visit Vienna again, I would stay here. I'm sold on the place.
