I spent 11 nights here. This is an older building, maybe a century or more, but does not show its age, only its elegance. The smaller rooms lack air conditioning, a definite disadvantage in the heat of July, but I only was really uncomfortable on two nights. The staff is friendly, helpful, and professional. The large and varied breakfast buffet nearly justifies the visit on its own. Be careful! You may not be able to handle lunch. My room was clean, elegant, well laid out, and just big enough for one person. The public areas include a charming sitting room, a really nice breakfast room, and a fish pond! The hotel is located a short walk outside Vienna's central core, with excellent access to both the underground (U-Bahn) and the streetcar service, so everything of interest is no more than 15 to 30 minutes away. The immediate area is not of much interest, but this is of no consequence. Overall, the value for money is very high: charming building, exceptional staff, good location, all for a good price. I will certainly put this hotel at the top of my list for a subsequent visit.
