“Lavender-fuelled loveliness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Vienna is an expensive place for hotels, but this was worth every penny. Gorgeous rooms and the best breakfast we've ever had in a hotel - a selection of teas, fruits, cereals, breads etc all lovely and locally sourced. Normally we stick to B&Bs but this was all the friendly service and lovely food of a B&B but in a city hotel. We'll definitely be back.

Reached Vienna after cycling from Passau and stayed at this hotel. Location is great and staff and facilities great. A bonus was 10% reduction for arriving by bicycle. Security of bicycle very good. The breakfast was excellent, even had real tea insteadf tea bags. Highly recommend.

We had a lovely stay in this hotel for our ten year anniversary. The rooms are clean and tidy and well appointed. Everything is well decorated and the staff is very accommodating. The breakfast can't be beat. They have a large spread of breads, eggs, and a yogurt and fruit station. This may very well be our most favorite hotel in the world. It was absolutely lovely.

We loved the rooms - well conceived and decorated. and very comfortable too. Breakfast was the best offering we experienced in Eastern Europe. Very attentive staff at front desk and dining room. Good location near Westbahnhof and Metro. Supermarket right across the street for nibbles and necessaries. Lovely atrium garden for dining and reading.

It may not be in the smartest part of Vienna but it really is conveniently located both for arrival as the airport bus stops at the Westbahnhof and for the 49 tram into Vienna.
The reception staff are the most friendly I have encountered and the breakfast buffet is absolutely fantastic both in terms of selection and quality again quite the best I have experienced having spent many hundreds of nights in hotels on business as well as holidays.
The rooms are relatively small but spotlessly clean and well equipped - the only thing missing was tea/coffee facilities.
They are leading the way with being the world's first hotel to be zero energy and yet this is not done at the expense of deliverying customer service so well done!

Room Tip: the rooms facing the garden will not have traffic noise but are more expensive

We spent five nights at this new hotel. Although not at walking distance from the center, you can easily reach the main museums and downtown area by using the Tram #49.
Service is good - staff is nice, friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included in the room rate and is plentiful and of a very good quality.
Rooms are small but clean.
The main issue is the room temperature since the rooms are not equipped with AC.
When the weather is warm and sunny outside, it can get VERY hot in the rooms (my alarm clock is equipped with a thermometer and recorded temperatures varying between 27C and 32C at night, with the windows open and the fan on (provided free of charge).
It is difficult to get a good night sleep under these conditions.
I would not go back to this environmentally correct hotel, unless it freezes outside or unless they fix their climate control issue...Green is good, but not sweating green!

Dear JYFlorida,

Thank you very much for sharing your comments on tripadvisor.com.
We are really glad to read that you were satisfied with our service and that you had a nice time in Vienna. We are sorry that your room in our passive house did not meet your expectations. Your opinion is very important to us to improve our service quality.

Heating and cooling are significant contributors to a hotel's energy load. An in-house well supplies our cooling energy and provides the heat pump system with ground water.

We are aware that this summer was very hot and sometimes our system was not able to cool down the rooms to a comfortable temperature. We are currently investigating new options to improve the system for next summer.
Our hotel is the first hotel in the world working with this concept and we are learning new things every day but unfortunately we do not have anybody to compare with or to get advice from.

We would gladly welcome you again at Boutique-Hotel Stadthalle for your next stay in Vienna to show our improvement.

Best regards,
Stefania Aloia

This hotel should be the world standard : zero-energybalans, greenroof, green walls, renewable energyproduction, FairTrade & biofood. Fantastic to find this on 20 min walking from the historical centre of Vienna. Rooms are very clean, handy and nice (modern). Rooms-with-a-view on a purple lavendula-roof : you even smell the fragrance while sleeping like a rose in a very quiet neighbourhood. 5 min from lots of restaurants, a foodstore just at the frontstep. Staff is so kindly. I was here for business, and I'm staying in dozens of hotels around the world, but the staff is so friendly, even with the spontaneous printing of the boarding pass. I'll be back!
