We always tell everyone that the Konig von Ungarn is our favorite hotel anywhere. Since Vienna is our favorite city and the Konig is the best located hotel in the city, perhaps it's a foregone conclusion. However, we just returned from another stay - a week long from Christmas Day to New Year's Day - and it only reinforced our opinion.
We traveled with our son, daughter-in-law, her sister from Moscow, and our almost six year old grandson. Everyone loved the hotel, as did our friends and our son's friends, natives of Vienna who hadn't discovered its wonderful lobby, where meeting for a drink or coffee was like being able to entertain in our own living room.
The only drawback to our trip was a nasty toothache, but even that was handled beautifully by the hotel's very sympathetic concierges.
Two trips to the emergency hours of a dentist and even a doctor who came to the hotel to consult were far beyond expectations.
Our room was as beautiful as ever with its fabulous marble bathroom. Our kids were in a two bedroom suite - utterly charming. Both rooms had small Christmas trees, cookies every night before bed, and wonderful service. Breakfast in the vaulted restaurant, was perfect. The waitresses even scared up stale bread for our grandson to take to the Stadtpark to feed the ducks.
Of course, this comes at a price. I'm not sure where the $181 on Trip Advisors website comes from, but our double was over $300 at December's exchange rates. We were happy to spend it though - we loved every minute!
