Being from the U.S., we had no experience with the Steigenberger chain. We picked the Steigenberger Herrenhoff Wien in Vienna on the basis of it's 5-star rating, location and relatively affordable price. It was a great choice! To start, the hotel is superbly located, right in the Inner Stadt, which is where you want to be as a tourist. The hotel is literally round the corner from the Herrengasse subway stop, 100 m from the Spanish Riding School and less than 5 mins walk to the Graben and Kohlmarkt streets which form the main shopping and eating drag of the Inner Stadt, and is 6-7 mins slow walking to the Stephansdom. You could not be better located! The hotel itself is beautiful. The rooms look like they have been recently renovated, with high-end furniture and fixtures and all amenities laid on, including free wi fi! We were not happy with our initial room on check-in (we had booked a deluxe room but felt the room was a bit small and lacked a good view) and Frau Muller at reception immediately changed our room to a lower floor but the room was huge, and directly overlooked the Hofburg Palace! The service was impeccable throughout. Like most hotels, breakfast is a rip off at 28 Euros a head, but right down the street is the wonderful Cafe Centrale which I consider Vienna's best cafe where you can eat amazing food at a fraction of the price and soak in the atmosphere to boot! Another great cafe up the street in the other direction towards the Spanish Riding School is the Cafe Greinstadl, also with great food and atmosphere. The proximity of the metro means you save time and money going everywhere. I just can't recommend this hotel highly enough. For us, this will be the only place to stay on future visits!
