My husband and I stayed here for four nights in October '07. We chose the hotel based on previous reviews on Tripadvisor and for its location - and we weren't disappointed. The location is ideal - 10 minute walk to Stephansdom, 3 minutes to trams, trains etc. The service in the hotel was very good, with all hotel staff friendly, courteous and helpful. The breakfasts in the morning were of a buffet style and unlike a previous reviewer, we could not fault the breakfast - plenty of choice, fresh fruit, more coffee than you could drink. We had a double room and our only gripe would be that our 'double' bed was two single beds pushed together, with two lots of single bed linen. Would have preferred double bed linen.
Vienna itself is a fantastic walking city. Even the cemetery, Zentralfriedhof, is well worth visiting. The rows and rows of WW2 graves are so poignant.
One of our highlights was listening to the Vienna Boys Choir at Sunday Mass in the Hofburgkapelle - book your tickets online before you travel and then there is no queuing.
We had dinner in Da Capo Italian restaurant, 18 Schulerstrasse - Wow!!!! Fantastic food, excellent service and a really good atmosphere. Definitely book ahead, especially on the weekends.
