“Best place to stay in Vienna”
Reviewed 14 July 2010

We have just returned from staying here for a long weekend and having been and stayed in most parts of Europe, I am such a fusspot when it comes to accomodation but have NEVER stayed in such a beautiful, peaceful, clean, friendly, relaxing, accomodating accomodation.

The rooms are huge with extra large comfortable beds, sofas, tables, desk and chairs. everything is fresh cotton white and spotlessly clean with remote control air conditioning and a reasonable priced and well stocked mini bar in the room..........almost like a show home.

The shower is amazing, it's so powerful and the tub is HUGE (big enough for two) The toilet has a bidet and everything from cotton wool pads, tissues, toilet tissue,plenty of fresh white cotton hand towels and bath sheets/ towels, essential oils/ shampoos, conditioners, soaps etc etc are replaced daily!

The rooms have an lift to all levels so this is a bonus of you have luggage or find it difficult to manage stairs.
The hotel is only 8yrs old and was a complete refit so everything is as new yet you get the feeling it's full of charactor, history and culture.

The U Bhan is exactly 1min walk from the hotel doorway so you are always just 5-10 mins away from ALL main sight seeing/tourist areas, the benefit of this is the street is very peaceful to sleep after a long day of discovering Vienna. I was going to stay in the 'main' popular parts of Vienna but having now seen how noisy these areas are 24/7
I am delighted I chose here. You can also get from the hotel to airport using U bhan and train very easily, the transport system is fantastic.

You are one street away from restaurants and I HIGHLY recommend the Greek place just across the road, it is yummy and a great setting.

Also PLEASE order the eggs for breakfast, I have no idea how he makes them but they are fab and the choice of breakfast from the buffett really sets you off for the entire day, so much to chose from, fresh fruit, berries, bread, hams,different fresh fruit juices cheese, cereals, spreads, yoghurts etc etc....

The only other way I would describe this place is one of Viennas hidden treasures, I was sad to leave and WILL be back.

I stayed here with my wife when we were travelling through central Europe. I selected Spiess&Spiess based on Tripadvisor and there is no doubt it is fully worth its rating.

The owners were very helpful and friendly and happy to provide recommendations for food sights and any directions needed.

Breakfast is included in the room rate and has something to suit every palate, including my personal favourite scrambled eggs. Good strong coffee and a variety of juices.

Our room was spotlessly clean and large. There was a washroom and a bathroom. There was also a small balcony that we could sit out on, just unfortunate it rained solidly!

The location is approximately a 20 min walk to the Stephansdom. However, there is a U Bahn stop less than 50 metres from the hotel. Make sure you purchase a Vienna card for unlimited public transport and savings on the tourist sites.

Be sure to visit Grinzing to sample local wines. It is twenty minutes by tram.

This "Hotel/Bed and Breakfast was one of the cleanest and roomest places I have stayed in. The owners were the most accomidating folks with help from the Mozart concerts figuring out the outstanding public transportation system that i have ever seen.
The breakfasts were wonderful in the AM from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM. The location you could not have asked from more. When we go back, and we will, we will stay here over any hotel or bed and breakfast in Wien ( Vienna ). Parking is a tough id Vienna but the "tube " is close and it will take you directly to a park and ride.

We loved Spiess and Speiss Appartement. First of all, the Speiss's are wonderful people. Mrs. Speiss is a master with directions and so helpful. She was able to find us excellent seats to the opera and gave us wonderful advice for sightseeing. Mr. Speiss made us eggs every morning and the breakfast spread was just delicious. When we told Mr. Speiss that we loved jazz, he immediately changed the music in the breakfast room from a Strauss's waltz ( which was also pleasant) to some great jazz! The jazz and fabulous coffee got us started for the day. Don't forget to grab yourself a chocolate when you leave the breakfast room.They are top-notch. Look for them as you leave! The rooms are beautiful. We had a terrace and a contemporary room ---all white with a very, very comfortable bed. We were able to walk everywhere from Speiss and Speiss, but if you are not a walker, the B&B is just 1/2 block from the U-Bahn. Hint: There is a very good Greek restaurant at the corner. The lamb is "the best in the city" as told to us by a the curator of the Dom museum. He wasn't wrong. The prices at the restaurant are also reasonable. So, book at Speiss and Speiss. You will be happy!

We stayed here during our trip to Vienna and chose our room based on others reviews. It was simply incredible.

The staff was helpful and friendly. Like other European hotels/pensions, breakfast is included. The service was swift with eggs made to your liking. Plenty of juices and strong coffee.

Our room was spotlessly clean and large for European standards. There was a washroom and a bathroom - how decadent. A view from the rear of the house overlooked some greenery. There was a small patio that we could sit out on.

A Vienna card was part of our stay. Honestly I cannot remember, this may have been provided, or was sold to us at a discount. Use that for savings on local attractions and transit.

The location is in the city and like most European businesses, it has limited parking. You will be given a parking pass on check in that will cover you long enough to get your possessions into your room. From there we moved the car to a local long term garage and took the U Bahn 2 stops back to the hotel.

The U Bahn station is underground and this is your key to exploring the city. It is 2 minutes from the hotel, and located underground.

we have just returned from enjoying three nights at Spiess & Spiess boutique apartments. The location is excellent - only a short distance to Rochusgasse Underground station (one stop to the city!). We stayed in a room on the 4th floor - it was a beautiful room, very clean with a nice outlook.
The breakfast room is fantastic and our breakfasts were excellent.
This is a high quality establishment at reasonable rates and we woudl certainly stay here again.
Ulla Spiess the manager is very professional and freindly and most helpful.
There are a number of restaurants nearby that are of good quality.

This B&B has a great location, close to an underground station on a line that goes straight into the city, or an easy 10-15 minutes flat walk. The rooms are very large and comfortable. Ulla at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. Roland runs the wonderful breakfast room with quiet aplomb and make great coffee and scambled eggs. We would highly recommend as a great base for a stay in Vienna.
