Das Tyrol Small Luxury Hotel, Vienna
Last May I stayed at Das Tyrol Small Luxury Hotel in Vienna for the first time. Looking at the photos I knew it was a luxury hotel, but still the hotel exceeded my expectations. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, the hotel and rooms and bathrooms were incredibly clean!
One can really see that the hotel is run by a woman because of the female touch clearly visible all over the hotel. It has the perfect mix of design and functionality. Everywhere one looked there were fun art pieces, like e.g.the walls of one floor against which hung paintings of Donald Duck portraying him as angel, clown, devil etc. I loved the modern but still classical look of the interior of the hotel and use of the bright, lively color usage in the rooms, which made them very warm and cozy. The shopping street can be very crowed and loud, but the hotel rooms are excellently soundproof for as one closes the windows all noise from traffic gets drowned out.
We booked a standard room for three persons and even with the third bed, the room was still specious enough to comfortably walk around in. The room all have quite high ceilings, which give them an airy feeling to it. They are fitted with coffee- and tea facilities from Nespresso, a minibar, air-conditioning, satellite TV, bathrobes and slippers. Best thing was that free WiFi is available in ALL rooms. The bathroom is very clean and has everything one needs plus some little extras like a nail set, a sewing set and even a clothing line! The bed were just heaven to sleep in as even the extra roll-away bed slept very good!
Breakfast was plenty and typical Viennese too. The offered variety started from different meats and cheeses to yoghurts, cereals, fresh fruit to different marmalade, cakes and other nice sweet pastries to end a relaxing breakfast in the cozy breakfast room.
The location is perfect too as it is right at the busy shopping street of Maria Hilferstrasse and almost opposite to the famous Museum Quartier,a collection of museums.
Since we stayed almost 2 weeks we received a free upgrade from a standard room to a suite (with a lovely little balcony), which was so forthcoming from them. There had been a little misunderstanding as we checked in, but they made up for that by leaving a generous fruit basket in our new suite the next day and a little bottle of champagne.
The only two suggestions I would have for his hotel to make a stay even more comfortable and enjoyable for guests and that would be having a parking space for guests to just drop off their suitcases. The other thing is a ice-cube making machine, so guest can get their own when needed instead of asking for this at the reception. These are just minor comments and do absolutely not influence my very good impression of the hotel.
I would recommend this hotel to friends and even business contacts because it really is an island of tranquility in the busy city of Vienna. And I would definitely stay there again!
