We have just returned from a new year trip to Vienna, chose this hotel because of previous trip advisor reviews and we are so glad we did! We arrived from the airport by the airport bus which drops off at Morzinplatz which is basically Schwedenplatz area, it was around a five min walk to he hotel, we received a very friendly welcome from the receptionist who was very encouraging to our son who is learning German , and spoke German to him whenever she saw him! The hotel has a really cosy feel, a peaceful haven, it was spotlessly clean everywhere. We had a triple classic room which was on the third floor, again clean, comfortable and warm. The staff in this hotel are genuinely happy in their work , the breakfast staff are amazingly happy so welcoming every morning with beaming smiles on their faces, the gentleman on reception was extremely helpful in suggesting to us an Italian restaurant which was wonderful , he continued to be very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was beautiful, lovely fresh fruit always replenished in a timely fashion, everything was always there even bananas which in other hotels are the first thing to run out! Excellent choice of bread , hot bacon, sausages and soft boiled/ scrambled eggs. The hotel is perfect for all sites, even Schonbrunn palace can b reached on the Ubahn a Schwedenplatz without changing trains. New Year's Eve was very exciting, it was of course crowded but the atmosphere was great, I particularly enjoyed New Year's Day as we went h the Rathaus to watch the New Year's Day concert on the big screens, this was a highlight for me as I have watched since the age of 12 on the tv, unfortunately not lucky enough to get tickets in the draw, but this made up for it, there were couples dancing the Viennese waltz in their jeans and trainers!
I was genuinely sad to leave Hotel Austria and Vienna, it is. Wonderful hotel in a wonderful city, if you get to read this Hotel Austria please don't change anything about your hotel, we shall definitely return, and thank you very much for a memorable stay.
