The Baroque beauty of Vienna has enchanted some of the world’s greatest musicians, artists and thinkers over the centuries. Schubert, Klimt and Freud all hail from the Austrian capital, which is considered by in-the-know travelers to be one of the world’s most incredible cities to visit. With everything from opulent palaces, grand museums, exquisite cuisine and all the high-end shopping you could dream of, this city will have you thinking you’ve stepped right into a fairy tale.
Standing near the famous Naschmarkt, in the heart of the fifth district, the four-star pentahotel Vienna contributes its own hip flavor to the city’s inspiring atmosphere. Inside this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, the stylishly stark rooms showcase design by acclaimed Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun, and there’s a sauna and a small gym to dip into after a long day of sightseeing.

You’re ideally placed for excursions to the Danube Valley, Burgenland or over the nearby borders to Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
How to Get There
I had a meeting in Teech.Uni. Vienna, so I needed a hotel in a walking distance. It's a great hotel, with several restaurants nearby. Bar looks very nice, I'm sorry that my gf was not with me. I gave 4 stars for sleep quality as pillow was a bit too soft for my taste.
Other things - pure 5 stars
On the front door of this Viennese hotel, a sign says "Feels like home". And that is true. I've stayed in MANY hotels during the past fifteen years, but it is not often I get the feeling that I can "be myself" and relax. The staff at Penta is professional, polite and very friendly without being intrusive or awkwardly nice or sleek. The rooms are cozy and the prices in their maxi-bar (a vending machine) are reasonable. The restaurant and the bar/reception are among the coziest I've seen. Highly recommended!
The trio of us were forced to stay overnight in Vienna as our flight was delayed, so we spent only a few hours at the hotel and didn't really get to enjoy everything it has to offer.
But those few hours were really a pleasant experience. The rooms were clean and comfortable and nicely decorated. A complimentary bottle of mineral water awaited at the nightstand. Bathroom was spacious and excellent.
Hotel has a vending machine in the hallway and a gaming area in the lobby (including a pool table and a PlayStation dock!), which we didn't have time to use, but sounds like a great idea.
Service was correct, and also one sweet detail - as we were departing early to catch our flight, at 4:30 AM, before breakfast was served, the guys from the night shift made us breakfast-packages to go, which was a really kind and considerate thing to do.
All in all, definitely a nice stay.
