How to Get There
Stayed here for a long weekend. Everything was flawless from check-in to check-out. Great breakfast buffet. Comfortable rooms, great night's sleep. Special thanks to Anna who helped me complete my check-out the night before as I had a 5 am departure. I look forward to staying here again.
We enjoyed our stay immensly. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.
The room was beuatiful and very comfortable. All the little extras made us feel so at home. We will definitly will reccommend to others and hope to come back soon!!
I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a lovely place to stay in the heart of old Inner Stadt Vienna. The hotel is a block and a half from the Hofburg Palace (and Spanish Riding School) and is surrounded by a multitude of good restaurants and inviting shops. We were able to walk from the hotel to nearly all the museums (e.g., Hofburg Imperial Treasury, Belvedere, Natural History Museum, Kunsthistoriches Museum, Albertina, etc) and several lovely churches (Augustinerkirche aand Michaelarkirche are very close by). The staff are friendly; they were very helpful and fluent in English which I appreciated since my German is nonexistent. The accommodations are very comfortable. There are also several amenities such as a gym, sauna, bar and restaurant. You will not be disappointed!
Hotel is of a great location, close to Graben Street. It's clean and nice. Just a slight issue, when we request for a vaccum cleaner, (we need to for our travel vaccum packs) the hotel stuffs were reluctant and when we explained why we need it, they say they need to send someone to 'supervise' us. This is the first time we encounter this as all the time BNB or other hotel stuffs are mor than willing to lend us the vaccum cleaner without any other questions!
I've to say that the hotel room doesn't really smell very nice. But it isn't a big deal.
The main problem was the car service. I left the car in the garage at the check in and asked it back in the morning after check out. After 15 min waiting outside, I came back to the reception and realised the car key was still stored in the drawer, nobody went to pick up my car. The people at the reception pretended nothing happened and claimed they were busy. I had to rush to the airport!!
