“A secret location ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful hotel where the emphasis is on "less is more". Each room is completely individualisticly designed. Lightweight bistro serving excellent foods matching the wines.Wine bar Open 24 hours. Comfort level of the highest degree. Only hotel I will use in Vienna. Looking to try out their other hotel in Salzburg.

The hotel is located just outside the central area. You can walk in 20 minutes or less to most of the central museums, shopping streets, parks and so on. Volkstheater underground station is about 500m away.

Efficient, friendly reception.

I'm teetotal so the wine theme of the hotel did nothing for me, but it was not overwhelming either.

My room was very large. Modern decor. Lots of open-fronted storage. Safe, minibar. Very quiet - my room looked onto a light well and I heard no noise from outside or inside. Large window. Window blind was opaque but morning light came in round the edges. Pleasantly lit (though not that good for reading). Washing area in an alcove, separate shower room (with effective rain shower) and WC. OK toiletries (liquid soap, shower gel/shampoo, moisturiser), decent towels and dressing gown. Clean.

Breakfast served in quiet, light, airy room, cheerful staff, with the possibility of sitting outside in a light well. Two grades: a Wiener breakfast for €12 gave cereals, fruit, bread and jam, cake - all well presented and high quality; a full buffet for €18 also gave cheese and cooked eggs.

I'd stay again - after checking that the places I wanted to see would be in easy walking distance or need an underground journey anyway.

Honestly, I was a bit hesitant to book this hotel because the price seemed too reasonable. So glad I did and here are the reasons why:

Location: Perfectly located on a quiet side street and yet only a 5-10 minute walk to major sights. We were there in August 2014 so there was a musical festival going on with great spots to eat for a quick bite. We walked everywhere from our hotel.

Service: We stayed there for 4 nights and received 4 excellent restaurant recommendations. Our family of four, to include a 14 & 16 year old, are very picky eaters as we only like fine dining at a reasonable price. Each restaurant selected matched our needs perfectly.

Room: These rooms were the largest we have had in Europe and this is our 7th country we have visited. The shower was amazing and loved the robes and slippers provided.

By far one of our favorite hotels. We highly recommend it.

Dear guests from Newport Beach, and also all other unnamed TA followers!

Summer season is getting to its end. During July and August the hotel has been fully booked almost every day. We had so many nice guests from all over the world and would like to thank all of you for choosing our little boutique hotel and also thank you to all of you, who have taken their time to write a review on TA.

If you, dear friends from Newport Beach, say "you must stay here" then it is not on us to say anything different :)! Everybody who prefers to enjoy the personal atmosphere in a private run boutique hotel is more than welcome to stay and we assure you our utmost attention for a perfect stay and will always try to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Cordially,

Conrad Schröpel

The hotel is located away from the tourist areas, but within 10 minutes' walking distance to the national museums area. Our room was spacious with a high ceiling and had modern furniture and fixtures. In our opinion the toilet was separated a little too far from the wash basin in our room (303). The bathroom fan can get quite loud and annoying. There is no fitness center on-site. Each room in the hotel is named after a local wine. Instead of drinking the wine provided in the hotel room, we were able to find and buy a bottle of wine from the same winery at a local market at a fraction of the what the hotel charges. Complimentary coffee/tea drinks are delivered upon request. An extra star for the laundry service of 12€ per wash/dry/fold load (ironing is extra), which is an absolute steal compared to what we have paid in other hotels. The breakfast buffet (18€ per person) was nice. The staff members were polite enough, but not as approachable as we would have liked.

Dear guests from San Jose,

thank you for your recent stay with us and also for taking your time to write a review on TA.

Good to know you had an overall good impression of our hotel. I hope you can understand that prices in our minibar and our winelounge are higher than if you buy the wine in the supermarket on the street, whereas I doubt it was the same wine as in our hotel, because we have the premium wines here and the Hillinger winerey (the patrons of your room 303) have also a supermarket-line..., but anyway, as long as you had an enjoyable stay, everything is fine! Regarding gym: we do not simply have the space here for that, our hotel is too small! But for all gym lovers: there is a very professional gym just a 6-7 minutes walk away from the hotel, named John Harris. We will give you the guidance how to get there. For all other sport lovers: run along the Ring and through the city parks, then have a refreshing shower and enjoy our oppulent buffet breakfast :)!

Cordially,

Conrad Schröpel

This boutique hotel provided us with a memorable 4 nights in Vienna. Our room was wonderful although the open plan bathroom (not toilet!) was a little different. The staff were exceptional. We especially liked the effort they made to recommend restaurants and make bookings for us (incidentally all top choices - the food generally in Vienna was a stand out albeit not that cheap). Unlike CarrieSue802's review, our room was air conditioned very effectively. We walked everywhere in Vienna from the Hotel except the Schonbrunn Palace when we took the train with tickets purchased conveniently from the hotel's reception.

But mostly this was a fun place to stay - just enough quirkiness, just enough luxury. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: As the rooms are named after Austrian winemakers, select a favourite before booking!

I would not call this a luxury hotel; however, it is a nice hotel & I would stay again. Pros: decent priced room service, location, cleanliness, friendliness of staff. Cons: no coffee maker in room (also a pro at times-they will deliver coffee/tea to you at no charge....however one time they were busy and I had to go down to the reception area to get my liquid life), shower door is frosted but you can still see through-this can be an issue when traveling with a teen), and initial (interior) stairs to get baggage up. I will stay here again if I return to Vienna.
