I stayed in this hotel during my first ever visit to Vienna and was very happy with the experience. The hotel is located approximately five minutes walk to the city centre, Opera, shopping district and museums. The surrounding streets are not of interest to tourists but there are plenty of shops, supermarkets and restaurants. It is only a short walk to the U-bahn and a tram line runs directly past the hotel. It was a great advantage to be able to go sightseeing in the morning, return to the hotel for a rest after lunch and then pop back into town for dinner and more entertainment later on in the day.
I did not expect Vienna to be as humid as it was and I felt that the hotel was not completely equipped for this type of weather. There was a small fan supplied in the room but there was no air conditioning and as a result the room, which was smaller than average for a single was quite hot and stuffy at night. I assume that this is only a problem for a few weeks a year but it is worth considering if you are visiting in summer.
The staff were very obliging and my room was spotlessly cleaned every day by a very lovely maid. Wifi is available for free and there is a minibar in the room. Breakfast was the usual hotel buffet and there is also a restaurant open for lunch and dinner.
I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely consider returning on future visits.
