Very smick boutique hotel in the heart of the Viennese night life district...right on the canal. I took a boat trip down the Danube and it dropped home right outside the hotel! The staff were very helpful particularly the kitchen staff...they couldn't have been more obliging. Perfect location for getting around Vienna!

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in September 2016. The breakfast was EXCELLENT! But I will caution it gets pretty busy around 8-9, so it can be difficult to get fresh eggs/tea/coffee. They have an afternoon tea/coffee and cake which is a nice treat. The location was great. Easy access to the U-Bahn. Within walking distance to all sights... More

The breakfast was okay. You choose the type of eggs and coffee/tea of your choice. There are some yogurt, cornflakes, fruits, breads and some cakes. The cakes, nespresso and water are available till 11pm. This is great! The breakfast ladies are absolutely friendly and welcoming. The room was a little bit disappointing to me. Small is okay.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
