My husband and I spent a total of 3 nights at the Altstadt and truly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. The location is great, within walking distance of major sites, shopping and good restaurants. The breakfast is awesome and the afternoon tea a really nice touch! We highly recommend the Altstadt and hope to be back next time we're in beautiful Vienna.

We recently stayed here...and we did everything in our power to extend our stay in Vienna solely on the beauty of this hotel. There is nothing that can be faulted. The staff are helpful and friendly, the breakfast is fantastic and the rooms....nothing short of breathtaking. This is how hotels should be made. The most amazing experience. We will go back for sure not just for the beauty of Vienna but for the Altstadt.... congratulations to the owners / management...

Room Tip: Select the Junior Suites...may cost more but you will never regret it

If you are looking for a boutique hotel with atmosphere and personality, this hotel is the best you can choose. Even though everything has been said in all other reviews here, I still wanted to point out the special character of this place: Historical building with very high ceilings, some rooms designed by famous architect Matheo Thun (and they are really WOW!), personal service, amazing breakfast (you can choose from several rooms where to take it), a wonderful living room with an open fire place, a staff that is attentive and very kind, a cool part of the city (Neubaugasse is around the corner), in 5 minutes you reach underground Volkstheater and Museumsquartier and in 10 minutes you walk to Hofburg. We were really really happy to stay here and would recommend it to all friends of great lifestyle places with charm.

Room Tip: Go for the Matheo Thun rooms

Travelled with my wife and I and stayed here for 2 nights. The reception staff were all very very friendly and most helpful. They attended most willingly to our every request and even offered to post my postcard for me (for free) as the postal services were closed for the weekend.

We were upgraded by our friendly staff to a Instyle Hotel room, found it very spacious with contemporary layout e.g. all-glass bathroom and shower. The breakfast buffet was very good.

Location was just 10 minute walk to the Museum quarter and sights. Just the perfect balance between convenience and serenity that we sought.

I would highly recommend this hotel to any of my friends coming to Vienna.

Room Tip: Room 36 Instyle (Chocolate) Room was quiet and nice

This is a great hotel. We arranged for them to pick us up at the airport. The guy that picked us up gave told us of a number of things that were going on in town that we weren't aware of and suggested several 'local' places to go. The reception at Altstadt Vienna is very friendly and helpful. Always able to answer a question. The breakfast and the afternoon tea/cake is excellent. Lots of choices. We stayed tere 5 nights and never got tired of the food. Our hotel room was big and very quiet. The bed was very comfortable and I always got a good night's sleep. The hotel is a few blocks from the Museum Quarter and a metro stop so it's very convenient to get to anywhere. You can also walk to the market, and many of the main sites in the Ring. I would definitely stay here again.

Whenever I have time to visit Vienna, the Alstadt Vienna is for me the only choice to stay. The whole atmosphere at the hotel is amazing and gives a very warm and "homelike" feeling. This time I stayed at the 2nd floor (Room 4) with cosy red/black interior. After a long day in the city it gives you this "I am home" feeling. Location is very good, just a few minutes walk from the "Rathaus", and you can also find parking space at the nearbay side streets. Breakfast room(s) and buffet are great and very nice decorated (i.e. pre-opening drawings of the rooms). Hotel has no restaurant which is not important at all, as you have endless choices around.... will come back for sure!

Three of us traveling in Eastern Europe during early September found this to be our favorite hotel out of the entire trip. We stayed for 4 days and found the staff very helpful and thoughtful. When I made the reservation, i was concerned about distance to known attractions in Vienna. We all enjoy walking so it was no problem to walk a bit and then we discovered the transportation with the help of the Alstadt staff and it opened up all new possibilities. Accommodations and breakfasts were quite just outstanding. Great place.
