A short walk from magnificent Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of Austria’s emperors and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this grand hotel dates from 1823, and it served as a residence for guests visiting Emperor Joseph throughout his reign. The exterior is modeled on a Baroque palace, and the public areas feature chandeliers, original Habsburg family portraits, dark wood furniture and polished marble checkerboard floors. The guestrooms are classically styled but in a modern neutral color scheme, and they feature free WiFi, pillow menus and flat-screen TVs. Most offer a view of the hotel’s courtyard or the palace gardens. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in an imposing dining room with parquet floors and chandeliers, and the Schlosscafé serves traditional Viennese coffee and pastries, either inside or on the terrace. Don’t miss a nightcap at the Gloriette Bar, named for the famous pavilion in the Schönbrunn Palace gardens.
In the Area
Classic Pass tickets to Schönbrunn Palace include access to state rooms, the Gloriette and the garden maze. In downtown Vienna there are more than two dozen castles and 150 palaces to explore. But the city blends the old with the new, and Baroque buildings, Art Nouveau train stations and modern glass and steel structures stand contentedly side by side. The best way to get around is on two wheels; City Bikes can be picked up and dropped off at various locations. Head for the Freihausviertel area for hip galleries, boutiques and cafés. Take a trip to the top of the 450-foot spire of St. Stephen’s Cathedral for impressive views of the city. And stop for a coffee at Café Landtmann; it’s been a Viennese institution since 1873 and has been frequented by everyone from Freud and Mahler to Marlene Dietrich.
How to Get There
Great location with access to transportation or walking to the Christmas markets. The rooms were huge, clean and very unique in the very best sense of the word. The Christmas decorations made the season so much more memorable.
A Once in a Lifetime experience to Waltz in Vienna on New Year’s Eve. Prior to this Special night we toured and danced in this Beautiful city and hotel. There were two outstanding staff members at this hotel who deserve special mention. Firstly, Antonio at reception was so pleasant and helpful. His friendly manner and suggestions made time in this area more memorable. Bektas was an exceptional porter willing to do anything to be of service smiling all the while. These 2 gentlemen added a great deal to the days spent here. The weather may have been cold yet they both made efforts to warm one’s heart.
The good stuffs:
1) good location
3) quiet room

We have enjoyed every time we stay here. The underground is so close and can take you right into the center, the breakfast is great and the front desk is always so helpful. Prices are quite good during January.
I had a decent 2 night stay at this hotel which is located opposite to Schonbrunn Palace. The hotel is also well connected to the center of Vienna by metro. The rooms are comfortable and spacious; the staff at the reception desk are quite helpful as well. Overall a nice place to stay and well connected with rest of Vienna.
