We travelled to Vienna in the first week of December, we stayed for three nights for a christmas market break.
The hotel is located on a busy shopping street and was easy to reach from the Airport. We got the CAT train into Vienna city and then the underground to the stop called Neubaugasse where the hotel is directly opposite.
Inside the hotel it has a lot of charm, the decor is very elegant and is surprisingly quiet considering the amount of activity out the front.
The rooms are spacious, a safe is located in the wardrobe, flat screen tv, two single beds and two chairs and a table.The decor was a little tired in places and the bathroom had just a shower, which was fine for us and it was very clean. The room was always lovely and warm even when the temperature outside was below freezing. Sleep quality was fantastic it was very quiet in the room.
The breakfast was good, I would say a standard continental selection with choice of hot and cold food. The hotel bar is a nice retreat in the evening, although its fairly small and doesnt always have staff behind the bar.
As the other reviews have mentioned the current lack of wi-fi in the rooms and the restricted half hour access in the foyer/bar area is a shame but it wasn't a deal breaker for us.
The christmas markets were all easy to reach from the hotel as the underground is very easy to navigate, you could even walk to Schonbrunn Palace if your feeling fit, we did it and I think it took about an hour (would suggest taking a tram/bus instead, there is not much to see along the journey as you are out of the tourist area)
We didnt have dinner at the hotel but there were plenty of restaurants and fast food places outside the hotel to choose from, theres a handy Starbucks opposite the hotel too. If you want to check out but dont need to go to the airport for a while there is a secure luggage store behind reception.
Overall for a four day break I thought the hotel was a great choice and would choose again if we returned to Vienna.
