Hotel Cortina
Ranked #220 of 358 Hotels in Vienna
Reviewed 2 May 2008

I should start by saying that I have stayed in at least 6 Viennese hotels, including well-regarded 4 star properties. In an effort to save money given the dollar's declining valley, I "shopped around" for a good deal in an interesting neighborhood. The Cortina is definitely not in a typical tourist area, but Hietzing is easily reached by underground (Ober St. Veit stop) and one can be in city center in 15 or minutes or so. Hietzing itself is a delight, replete with great local restaurants, interesting architecture, a village-like shopping area, the wonderful Cafe Dommayer, a lovely restaurant (Alte Weinhuette), the zoo, and more. The hotel is immaculately clean. Rooms have blond wood and clean lines and feature a comfortable bed, good lighting, a small table, and a mini bar. The front desk manager was an absolute delight---personable, well-informed, and attentive. He supplied us with a wonderful map featuring Viennese architecture, which we used to find many of Hietzing's significant buildings including those by Loos and Hoffman. [The area is terrific for anyone with an interest in Vienna's modernist period!] Breakfast at the hotel was civilized and copious, and the breakfast room is non-smoking. The atmosphere is very soothing, with a sophisticated color scheme and posters of Vienna's architectural gems. There was a more-than-adequate buffet with great breads, cheeses, yogurt, fresh fruit, muesli, unlimited hot beverages, boiled eggs etc.

If someone needs to be right in the middle of the first district and can spend several hundred dollars a night, there are undoubtedly many fine options. But at 106 Euros including breakfast for two, the choice of the Cortina Hotel seems to be an unbeatable option.

Oddly, the property has only 2 Trip Advisor reviews. It merits a much closer look!

Hotel Cortina is a little way outside the city centre and about 10 minutes walk from the Ober St Viet metro station. It is very quiet, the rooms are clean and spacious, the staff are friendly and helpful.
I will stay there again when visiting Vienna. In the village, by the church is a little restaurant called "Mikel's" or something similar. He is the "waiter" and his wife is the cook. The food is good homestyle stuff, the wine is tremendous and the grappa is free! Not formal dining by any stretch of the imagination but a great night out as well as a good meal
