“Simple and lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2011

Our recent stay at the Hotel Altstadt was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. Our room - the Otto Suite - and the service was absolutely first class. The hotel proved to be an excellent stepping out point from which to view Wien. The breakfast feast served daily and the very relaxing experience of late afternoon tea and cake are worth noting. We will certainly stay again.

The Staff was just sooo friendly and eager to help. The Hotel is beautiful, clean and the breakfast was just to die for (GREAT!!!!). We were 2 blocks (easy walking) from the Museum District, so that we could come and go from the Hotel with no problems. I have traveled extensibly and this is one of my favorite hotel.

We spent three nights here on our way to ski in Italy. We picked this hotel for location and by the quality of reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappoiinted. Our bedroom was extremely comfortable especially the bed and it definitely helped get over the jetlag. The staff were very attentive and helpful, the breakfast probably the best we have had in a small European hotel, and we enjoyed evening drinks each night in the sittingroom be fore venturing out. Location is excellent with all the sights within walking distance. If you enjoy staying in places that are a little bit different but are not prepared to give up on comfort and service, then this would be an excellent choice.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and it was just perfect. It is definitely true that the hotel is not a 100% at viennas city center, but you can arrive to viennas heart in a 10 minutes walk. The location is definitely not a problem. The hotel staff is amazing, they helped me with everything! Starting from buying Cirque du soleil tickets to train tickets and good places to eat. The room was perfectly clean and very modern. The breakfast was incredible. I usually don’t write reviews on hotels but this hotel definitely earned it.

This is a lovely hotel. The staff are friendly, ever so helpful and efficient. The decor is bright, contemporary and uplifting. My friend and I found our rooms to be very comfortable: we were able to sleep very well. The buffet breakfast was delicious; afterwards we were well set for a day's sightseeing - we didn't need to have lunch. They even have a massage service: somehthing we would have made use of before had we known. The location has excellent transport links- within a few minutes you can take a tram or a tube and find yourself in the heart of Vienna. Nearby there are bars and restaurants, we visited a good Viennese restaurant named 'Boheme', (well worth a visit). There are cheaper hotels in Vienna, but I doubt they can match the all round high standards of The Altstadt.

Lives up to all the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. Beyond expectation,very special. We stayed in the Suite Privee for three nights. We felt really at home. After all why would you stay anywhere that wasn't up to your own daily standards or values. The staff are exceptional and the overall value remarkable.We had booked the 'Culture' package. Staying at the Alstadt enhanced the whole weekend. I have stayed at other 5 star chain hotels in Vienna on previous visits but I know where I will always stay in future.

We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is roomy and attractive. The rates are very reasonable for the facilities. The staff is very warm, friendly, and helpful. While it is a few blocks outside the Ringstrasse, it is a short and pleasant walk. I recommend it highly!
