This is a beautiful old hotel in the middle of the city, convenient to all tourist attractions and to mass transit. It's been modernized to the highest standards and is much more interesting than the American chains (Hilton, Marriott, etc.) here. Very competent, friendly, English-speaking staff, excellent restaurant. My only criticism is the lack of a fitness room.

Excellent hotel. Great location. Right in pedestrian area. Would recommend to book via Internet sometimes give special discounts. Quite expensive but good price-quality. Excellent bat and good restaurant.

Unfortunately this is a 5 star hotel where you will pay more but get less. We arrived and there were renovation work going inside the hotel in the lobby area and it was noisy. The man who was working at that time was unfriendly and unhelpful. They gave us the worst room where you have to go to a level... More

Hotel is nice and very clean. Rooms are very large. Location is excellent. It's not a modern design hotel but it has a charm and when in Vienna that's something too look for. I was sorry for not having enough time to visit the hotel restaurant.

Hotel is situated in an center of city. Perfect location everything is on walking distance. We have been in B&B type of booking. Breakfast it was rich, staff were helpful and rooms are big. In any case hotel is not budget hotel but for the price you pay you get service and position. Only problem is parking place.

The hotel is ideally located for shopping and feeling the vibe of the pedestrian central area of Vienna. In this respect it offers a reasonable compromise of value for money but no more than that. By all means please forget the five stars it proudly displays...But beyond the uplifting that it badly needs it also needs an enthusiastic and forward... More

If you are on a business trip to Vienna, this is the right place for you. Welcoming hotel with very, and I mean very, large rooms, at the heart of the city, right next to Stephan Square. The surrounding area is both beautiful and luxurious.

The building has been beautifully restored with Chandeliers, Marble, Columns, and quality decor. The entrance and reception is a bit pokey as they have sold off the ground floor to Mango and other shops. The restaurant and bar area are on the first floor which is OK but the bar is windowless, and here is the thing, they allow smoking... More

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.
