We stayed here for three nights. Overall, it is a charming boutique hotel with antique furniture and plush looking rooms in a very convenient location for walking to the main attractions. It had a great breakfast selection and a very helpful Italian concierge.
Vienna was very hot and humid and we were glad to have a pedestal fan in our room. There are rooms with air conditioning and they are more expensive but I would pay the extra if staying in the height of summer. We had a room on the first floor where all the rooms face each other in a square formation. If you have your windows open, you hear all the other guests which is not ideal.
The rooms were a good size but there was too much furniture so there was hardly any space for luggage or to move around. I’d suggest taking out some of the occasional furniture to create more space.
The bed we had was a lovely looking sleigh bed but the bedhead needs to be affixed to the wall and some talcum powder dusted into the timber joints of the base! Every time one of us moved, it made so much noise it woke the other one up. I’ve never slept in a bed like it. (Note to the hotel: we were in room 110 if you want to check it out). Our ensuite bathroom was very small – so small that we had to sit sideways on the toilet as the wall in front of it was only about a foot away.
The location is great so long as you’re not bringing your car. There are limited reserved car spaces at an off site parking building but getting to the hotel in a car is difficult even with a GPS.
