“This is only a 3 stars hotel!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

No coffee/tea maker or bottle of water as a 4 star hotels??!!! Our room was exactly at the staircase that is not acceptable that we requested to change the room but the hotel claimed they were full. The shower area and toilet were seperated and the shower area and the bedroom only seperated by a curtain, not even a door. It is a 3 stars hotel at most.
The door of our room have no lock! No security at all.

It is a very nice hotel, at the great location. It is in the center of the city but in a quiet corner without the noise. A decoration in rooms is great. This hotel has a very good value for the money. I would definitely go back there next time i go in Vienna.

Small hotel with 4 rooms per floor, all no-smoking. Rooms are decent size, with very high ceilings. Seperate shower/sink and toilet, in the european style. Similarly, king bed is two twin mattresses each with their own duvet; very comfortable. Downstairs is the breakfast room: cereal, juice, cheeses, sliced meats, egg, sausage, bacon, coffee, tea, cakes. Not bad. Staff is friendly and helpful; really it is just one person who will handle everything -- the single front desk person. Location on a quiet narrow street very close to the Swedensplatz, where you can get the #1 or #4 U-bahn, or the #2 tram around the Ring. Close also to Stephansplatz, a nice stroll.

As for further tips, we recommend Gasthaus Poschl, the Sacher Cafe, Cafe Hawelka, and Kondertori l'Heimer.

Dear Gonnaflyn,
Thank you for taking time for sharing your experience at ALMA Boutique Hotel with other travelers. You pointed out all the matters we are proud of: the perfect location, just behind the Schwedenplatz and near to everything in the old city, the comfort of all rooms with a deal of attention to upper quality, the breakfast with a great selection of organic & regional products and the friendlies of the staff, which is a point I'm personally very proud of it. I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay and I hope to welcome you back at your next planned trip to Vienna:
With best regards

In a last minute scheduling snafu, we found this hotel thanks to TA reviews. Nice! Easy to find, convenient to the Underground, and a good deal to boot, we are pleased without even yet experiencing the breakfast. Would recommend!

This property is perfectly situated, 5 minutes from St. Stephens and even closer to the underground. Although the rooms were small, we felt that we got a lot for our money. Nice breakfast. Front desk staff were all wonderful. Considering how expensive Vienna can be, this place hits the mark. I noticed lots of business travelers which is a good sign.

I was in Vienna for 3 nights with friends, and I stayed in a deluxe single, and while it was a bit small, it was very comfortable and had everything I required. Bathroom facilities were excellent, although I did think the red decor a bit extreme! My room overlooked the courtyard and I was wakened the first morning by loud drilling, but other than that, the hotel was very quiet. Breakfast was excellent and there was coffee on tap all day, which I found very civilised indeed! Staff were immensely courteous and patient. The hotel is in a terrific location and if I ever return to Vienna, which I would love to do, I'd happily return to the Alma.

If you are looking for a small boutique hotel in the heart of vienna, apart from the big crowded hotels, this is your place to stay. Rooms are not very big but beautiful and you will find everything you need. The breakfast is very good and diversified. Parking is 19,-- per day in a nearby public garage.
