In a city that appears to the visitor as being more focused on its past than on its presence, I had thought that a new hotel without constant Mozart muzac would be a welcome breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, I found this hotel disappointing.
Opened just two years ago this hotel is very modern and has been consistently designed from public spaces to guest rooms in gold shades, apparently playing on the theme of the local Secession style from a century ago. However, this modern design does not in any way feel comfortable and but rather cold and anonymous. E.g. public spaces and guest rooms basically lack prints, paintings or other decorations. Don't get me wrong, the facilities are of good quality and the rooms offer a lot of space. Staff was friendly, the free WLAN works very well and the restaurant had good food. The only objective criticisms would be (accordingly to two different fellow guests) that rooms facing direction Schönbrunn palace also face the rail tracks, and those generated disturbing noise during the night. It is just that I never felt comfortable there due to a lack of spirit.
