This is a Small Luxury Hotel, and members of this mix of independent hotels have never let us down. Seeing our membership card, we were given an upgrade to a junior suite. (SLH membership is free and highly recommended). The reception staff are all friendly, helpful and welcoming, and all kitted out in impeccable suits. During our stay, any time we came down the stairs someone would be ready asking how they could help. Our room was on the top floor and up two flights of stairs. All the way up the decor was what you would expect for a hotel called "Belle Epoque". Our room, Jugendstil Suite, is an attic room, with a deceptively high ceiling, oak beams and a jacuzzi. The furtniture and decor are all to a high standard - all in the era style, but clearly modern and well mantained. The bathrooom is quie small, containing jsut the shower, sink and loo - the jacuzzi is in the main bedroom area. A dressing gown and slippers are provided, but only one bath towel each and a single hand towel.
The hotel has free wi-fi which is easy to join and which has a good signal from out on the garden balcony, in the pubic dining room and in our room on the top floor. The safe is a good size and has a removable shelf, which is handy. The minibar fridge is large enough to hold your own water bottles etc. The items provided are fairly expensive, as is usual, and the hotel do charge for water - 4 Eur for 0.5l - so you may prefer to get a bottle from the super market - cross Maria-Viktoria Strasse and head uphill towards Lichtentaler strasse - the supermarket is just on the right. Here you can get a litre for less than a euro.
The hotel is more generous with breakfast, where a little notice invites you to take extra rolls etc and make yourself a snack to take out for lunch. Breakfast selection is "the usual' rolls, cold cuts and cheese, cereal and yoghurts plus a small amount of fruit, salad and yoghurts. Hot eggs, poached, scrambled or whatever can be made to order. There was also a bottle of champage (and note: champagne, not sparkling wine or prosecco) next to the fruit juice at breakfast.
Also icluded in the room rate is afternoon tea (or coffee) with a small selection of cakes and parties. This can betaken in the dining room, on the sofa in front of the fire or out of the shaded terrace. As well as cakes they had a bowl of nuts, which was a huge win for me as a fan of the savoury snack!
