This hotel was located literally right next to the underground station and the St. Stephen's cathedral. Many of the rooms have a direct (and very close up) view or side view of the cathedral. Staff was helpful, breakfast was excellent. There was also a bar menu for light food at other times of day. The room had about the best air conditioning I have found in Europe. It was effective and very adjustable, as well as being quiet. The beds were very comfortable. The room was pretty large. Bathroom was huge and had a big bathtub. There was good storage available in the room.
Our room (602) did have one small glitch. It had blinds which were external to the windows, and each morning when (I think) the wind would increase, an updraft would cause the blinds to become horizontal and the room would flood with light at around 6:30 to 7 AM, requiring us to get up to manually press the button to shut them again. This would only be a problem on our floor and the one above it. The lower floors seemed to have regular internal curtains. I think that this problem could be easily solved by either putting blinds inside the windows, or just getting rid of the blinds and putting in dark curtains.
Anyway, this was a small problem and the hotel is definitely recommended.
