The accommodation in this hotel is fabulous. Have stayed in alot of hotels, but this was the most unusal room I have stayed in, snow white in colour except for the tv and Nespresso machine, bizarre, but really different. Everything was brilliant, the bed, pillows, shower, towels and the views, these all made for a great stay. We stayed in the upper floorsand the view was superb over Vienna. Checkin went very smoothly and pleasantly and the receptionist brought us to the room, which was a good touch.
In our package we had breakfast included, a bit Fawlty Towers(ish), on the 1st morning we were shown to a table and asked did we want coffee and juice. There was a buffet, but were'nt told about it, asked for a menu, watched other diners and saw them going to the buffet, watched others arrive, obviously their first morning too, and they were the same as us!!! Eventually found our way around. The other mornings we were there, things did not improve, staff did their best not to get things, cutlery, coffee, etc. They would walk by, but no eye contact, difficult to get!!! We had breakfast four times, and a different staff member each time and all were the same, I dont think they were trying to be evasive, but it was very strange. Be on time for breakfast, chefs came out 2 mornings at 10.30 to clear away breads and pastries, no lingering over breakfast for the late arrivers...
Breakfast aside, this is a super hotel and yes I would stay here again (and maybe breakfast elsewhere).
Had drinks in the Loft Bar at night, views fab of the city and the place was buzzing....
