We have spent five days in Vienna, at the hotel Shermin, and it was really very pleasant to be there: the hotel, recently (2012) renovated, it very well fitted: very large bedroom, king size bed, nice decoration and furniture (every bedroom is different), and small but efficient bathroom. The only little problem, for people with great or heavy luggage is that it is on a first floor without lift. The staff at the front desk is very pleasant, helpful, and with a real sense of hospitality. The breakfast is fine (the breakfast room is a little bit too small when the hotel is full, but everyone tries to make it as comfortable as possible), at the location is great: 5min (walking) from Karlskirche and Secession, 10min from the opera and the main museums, 15min from the Cathedral… Next time we will go to Vienna, we will certainly stay at the Shermin hotel

A wonderfull small hotel,in a fantastic location! Karlsplatz underground station is a 5 min walk away,the center on Vienna,the Stephans Dome,is only 10 mon walk. The rooms at the hotel are spacious,with fantasticly high ceilings. The breakfast room is small,but invokes the spirit of the Vienneese koffie houses and is just delightfull! The breakfast food is delishious and charmingly presented,the koffie is simply outstanding. We found the staff helpfull,curteous,friendly and very knowledgeable,it was no problem that they are not there all the time,it actually lent to the peacefull atmosphere. Don't be put of by the appearance of the front entrance,it is "shabby-chic" and in no way detracts from what is an efficiently run,perfectly situated gem of a hotel! I would highly recommend staying here!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back if early morning city noises irritate you.

... are the rooms (thematically and stylistically unique!), new and clean. The staff: always great, uncomplicated and helpful. The breakfast buffet is excellent (may be not in terms of variety but definitely in quality) and one is served like in a good restaurant. :) The hotel is located quite close to the city center and for this offers really good prices.

We stayed at Hotel Shermin for 4 nights and really enjoyed this hotel. I had a hard time determining a good location to stay in Vienna as I was not familiar with the city. This is definitely a great location. Located a 5 minute walk to the Nacshmarket and 5 minutes to the opera house and other tourist attractions. We rented bikes from a station close to the hotel and biked everywhere else. It's impossible to be close to everything in the city as it is more spread out. 

The rooms were huge with high ceilings and great decor. There was also nice toiletries included which was nice. The staff were great and very helpful. Breakfast was ok. No hot options, but it did the trick. We paid about $100 per night and found this well worth the price given the other options. Parking was free on weekends and 10 euro per day on the street. Great hotel I definitely recommend it!

You cannot fault this small charming hotel and you feel as if you are the only person in the place. It does have an apartment feel about it which adds to the experience.
Breakfast was excellent and free wifi also.
My only problem was a large family who took up most of the breakfast room and as usual parents will not make their kids sit down, but this is not the hotels fault. Cant wait to stay again.

A nice, clean, spacious B&B close to the Vienna city centre. The staff were very accommodating and helpful with our early arrival and departure. The room and 4 beds worked well for the 4 of us (2 kids). A great location, with a 5 minute walk to the subway or 5 minute tram ride / 10 minute walk to the ring / city centre. A bit noisy outside and pretty warm during the summer, but highly recommended.

Thank you for your charming review, we looking forward seeing your again. We try hard to improve, sorry about the lift, the house owner thinks about this for 20 years ;-), but we plan an aircondition for next summer.
