I stayed at this hotel for a week at a conference and for some "touristing". The hotel itself is very grand and imposing but as always it is the little things that let down. Whilst room was basically as expected it did not have those extra touched you would expect plus bed was not very comfortable and A/C was not very adjustable. The staff however were great. Restaurant served a good selection for breakfast - didn't eat in evenings as some walkable local pub/restaurants. Major bugbear for me "again" is the internet/ wifi - you have to pay for it everywhere! I'm sorry but no hotel should charge for this any more as if they put it in for the staff there is no/little extra cost to supply for guests - do hotels charge extra for using water, electricity and TV I don't think so! Also, it had been "billed" as central and is definitely not - takes taxi rides of Euro8-10 each way to get to central Vienna. Nothing really bad but the acid test is would I stay here again when visiting Vienna ... No, as there better hotels at similar prices that are actually in central Vienna.
