We were staying at Falkensteiner Hotel Am Schottenfeld between April 16 and 22. For two ladies, 'young at heart' and interested in Vienna's art and architecture, it was important to stay at a location convenient as a starting point for different destinations in the city. Though we'd rather say that walking from Falkensteiner to the historic heart of the city is a bit too long as an unnecessary everyday 15-20-minute exercise but there is Bus 48A right around the corner which will take you to 'almost everywhere'. A metro station is max 10-minute walk away. The area is nice and clean, with some shops, bars, cafes, etc.
The room, standard double, was perfect, large enough for the two of us, with a spacious bathroom, sparkling clean and a delight to use. The room was quiet, always immaculately clean, mattresses and bed linen good. We didn't use the breakfast option, a bit pricey for us at 17€, but the coffee machine (supplied with free tabs and tea bags as they were used) together with a small fridge/bar helped whip up a quick breakfast to start the day. Wi-fi in the room was an important feature for us and the speed was good. Unfortunately, there was a network breakdown for more than 24 hours once during our stay, and a specialist team was working continuously until they fixed it.
One little comment in the negative: the SPA was a surprise, as nobody gave any warning that the sauna was 'unisex'. There happened to be a man in his Adam suit as my friend (a lady) entered to use it.
And the last but not the least, the superb staff! We cannot thank them enough for being so friendly, helpful and patient! Each of them went far and above his/her job description to make us feel at home and a welcome guest. Enough is to say that when we happened to be locked in a church nearby on our first morning in Vienna, with not a soul in the city to call for help and not a single number we knew, we called the hotel and they immediately sent a member of staff to save us. And he never showed any sign of annoyance but showed a broad smile instead!
We recommend this hotel as a place where you will be welcome. Have a nice stay!
