I'll start with our welcome, which was friendly, attentive and very efficient.
We were taken to our room and shown how the equipment and the set up worked. There was a really nice coffee machine, and several different teas, which you had to phone down to get boiling water for, which was delivered to the room in seconds. Basically, you were allowed to drink the two complimentary bottles of white wine and the two complimentary bottles of red wine if you wished, along with the water, cola, juice and beer. Spirits, sparkling wine and snacks were chargeable. There was a wine fridge for the white wine, though we felt it wasn't cool enough, but managed to get our wine into the mini-bar fridge.The wines were replenished each day and you were encouraged to take what you didn't drink home with you! Never had that anywhere else before!!
You could take breakfast in the restaurant downstairs, or pick up some stuff and take it to your room. We truly felt as if we were part of the furniture here, i.e. comfortable with the whole set up, relaxed, and our four nights here were blissful, with good sleeps and a comfy bed.
Secondly the location: very near to most things, we caught the CAT train from Vienna airport and a two stop Underground ride to the nearest station to The Guesthouse. It was a five minute walk from there.
We had much to see all around the area, as Vienna has to be up there with one of our favourite cities, even Rome! So many historic buildings at every turn.
We also took in a Mozart concert which was excellent.
The whole Viennese experience was a good one, made better by the hotel we chose. Well done the team. We would definitely stay here again, if we go back to Vienna
