LOVE this hotel. Staff were impeccable. The rooms were spotless. The outside deck was gorgeous. The breakfast buffet (I am sure no longer due to covid) wasspot on. The central location is amazing. The central location is worth EVERY penny. Beautiful old charm hotel in the heart of Vienna.

Perfect hotel for us. Friendly, helpful, quiet and peaceful. Great location to walk round the old city. Delicious & plentiful breakfast with a variety of very fresh bread. Nice decor, clean with nice soap in bathrooms, good wi-fi for our teenager. Staff were very helpful with advice & printing off tickets we needed.

This privately run hotel offers excellent value for money to those wishing to explore the centre of Vienna on foot. It is a 5 minute walk from where the Val2 airport bus drops you in Vienna. This service runs every half hour for €8 one way or €13 return. Tickets are valid for 28 days and can be bought outside the airport in ticket machines which are adjacent to the bus stops. The rooms are quite small but have very high ceilings which lighten them up. The rooms are spotless with modern bathroom equipped with either a bath with shower attached to the wall or just a shower. Water was always hot and toiletries were provided as were crisp white towels. We had a double bed which had 2 single duvets, which is an ever increasing style in Europe. Rooms were spotless and were serviced quietly whilst we had breakfast. Breakfast offered an excellent choice of fayre. Lovely breads, fruit, yoghurts, scrambled egg, bacon, sausages, cereals, cheese, tomatoes and cold meats. Large variety of tea and coffee (by caffettiera or machine).This service did get busy at times as the breakfast room is quite small and the staff were kept quite busy replenishing the ingredients as they ran out and clearing tables. You could get tea or coffee in reception between 1pm and 10pm via a quaint urn. The reception staff were very efficient in a rather stiff manner but were very helpful and polite. Upper floors were served by a vintage lift, in keeping with the building, which was quiet and a novelty. I would recommend this hotel due to its location being in a quiet cul de sac and a few minutes walk from the huge cathedral and other major attractions this wonderful place has to offer. There was no tea or coffee making facilities in our room which was the only downside. Room safe was a little clumsy in its mechanism which we couldn’t quiet master. Good value and good location.

My wife and I travelled from Australia for a brief 3 night visit to Vienna. Location was perfect and within easy walking distance to all main attractions and public transport. Reception staff were welcoming and well versed in the sights and attractions. Hospitality staff who served us daily with an amazing breakfast were delightful. Rooms were spacious for European standards and very clean. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for short or long term stays. It was a wonderful place to start our six week European holiday after a long flight.

hotel is in a great place to access all of the city, with a major metro station 2 min walk away. The whole of the hotel is spotlessly clean the staff at breakfast are very attentive. A special mention to Christian and Edward on reception absolute credit to the hotel. We had to leave early for our flight so missed breakfast and Christian made us a pack up to compensate a nice touch. The only issue is the lack of aircon in rooms, but a nice place to stay.
