What a find…part of the Marriot chain, this hotel stood out as being amazing in terms of location as its literally across the road ( 1 min) from the U4 ( Green Line) Metro station called Meidling Hauptstrasse - the austrian metro network is so efficient that you have trains coming every 4 mins and you get into old town Vienna in less than 10 mins.The hotel is a 8 mins walk away from the beautiful summer seat of the Hapsburgs - The Schonbrunn Palace. Breakfast was amazing with all sorts of hots foods, wide variety of fruits, cereals, yoghurts, Breads, pastries, cold cuts, and they even had a live food stations for eggs which is not something you get everywhere. A special shout out to Front Office Manager Hannes who was not only gave us fabulous rooms overlooking the inner courtyard which afford views of Vienna whilst maintaining the serenity of quiet with the birds chirping in the courtyard- Hannes went out of how way and recommended our itinery…we followed it and it turned out to be perfect - as we arrived late afternoon..he suggested doing the Schonbrunn Palace that evening before sundown and then sent us to this beautiful hidden away "non touristy" restaurant behind the Am Hof in Vienna called Brezl Gwolb ( which means Pretzel Basement)…we had the best soft freshly baked Pretzels with light Austrian Beer, followed by lip smacking Wiener Shnitzel and a fresh Asparagus salad!! We checked out to go to Budapest and rebooked our last night in Vienna at the Renaissance..this hotel literally became home for us. Spent the last day using their panoramic rooftop pool, sauna and sunroof. In terms of getting here from the airport its quick and inexpensive ( 14 Euros for the CAT Train from the Airport which also includes all public transportation for a day…the CAT ride is a non stop 16 min ride to Landstrasse Station where you get off and change into the Green Metro Line U4 bound towards Hutteldorf ) In all you get from airport to hotel in 20 mins.
