We found this hotel on the Expedia website and it lived up to its billing. It is located just outside the Ring on a very quiet street. It's a perfect location because you have some privacy but can walk to shopping, restaurants, and many public transportation options within blocks. Plus the Sigmund Freud Museum is right around the corner! The rate was very reasonable.
But without the friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff, I might not be writing this review. The front desk staff do everything from registering guests, checking bags, serving coffee and drinks, to acting as tour guides. And most important for me, when it turned out the room I was assigned was acceptable after the first night, the hotel immediately offered to assign us a new room and transfer our luggage while we were out touring. Generally, their English was good (given that I do not speak German).
I did not take advantage of purchasing the breakfast (way too much food for me in the morning), but the buffet looked quite good.More
