On arrival reception was friendly and efficient and we were given room 506 which had a great view of the Cathedral. Room was big enough - modern, light wood with lemon/yellow the predominant colours. Bed was 2 singles put together ( a common occurrence in Europe) but it was very comfortable. We could hear a bit of noise outside during the night but not enough to keep you awake.There was plenty of cupboard space and had a safe for valuables. Also in the room was a round table and 2 sofa chairs. Bathroom was good - washbasin & toiletries ( although get annoyed when they go skimpy and give you a body soap and hair shampoo combined), shower and separate bath & toilet. They had heating bars for hanging/drying clothes but could not get it to work. The adjustable air-con. worked fine.
We note they have a small gym at the hotel but feel not enough thought put into the limited equipment they did have in it - the 4 machines all related to legs. Maybe get rid of the table/chair and nicnacks in their and maybe have some free weights.
The Buffet Breakfast area is obviously excellent because of the view afforded and the service was good.They have a fair selection of cold meats and cheeses, cereals and yoghurt. Fruit salad seemed to be from cans although they did have pineapple.Have juices and you can make your own orange or carrot juice. Hot food, they only had sausages wrapped in bacon (no change) - did not realize until second morning you can order omelettes (not noted anywhere that I could see). Coffee and tea available ( to order). Breads and pastries were available but disappointed with quality as Vienna is renowned for it's breads and pastries!
If they improved these small areas you could not go past this hotel with the added bonus of it's position.
