We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in October. We also stayed at this hotel 6 years ago and liked it very much then. The rooms are nice and clean, the breakfast bar was excellent. The service dsk was very formal but efficient. We booked 2 similar rooms but they were not the same size - one was a big room with 2 (two!) bathrooms overlooking the internal yard, the other was smaller and overlooked the side street. Unfortunately this smaller room was located at the wing which had an undegroundtrain line underneath, and although we were on the second floor of the building with high ceilings, we could hear and feel the vibration caused by underground trains passing under the hotel,
We arrived at the hotel at 8 o'clock in the morning after the night on the train. As the check-in time is only 2pm, we knew we would be not able to get a room earlier. but asked if it would be possible to have an extra breakfast and include it in the bill. We had a very sleepy child and did not want to leave the hotel until he wakes up. To our disappointment we were told we could not do that and were sent to the hotel bar where we could get only hot drinks (coffee, tea etc.) It was a disapointing moment for us, We have never been in similar circumstances refused a breakfast we were ready to pay for (at 26 Euro per head!).
I also must say that I found the mattresses quite hard. I have a feeling that the rooms' amenities are not similar fromn room to room as I do not remember any problems during my previous stay at this hotel. During my previous stay we had a similar category room overlooking the Ringstrasse, it was very quiet and the mattresses were very comfortable.
