I have lived for several months and also traveled many times to Vienna, and out of the generally high standards of Viennese hotels, this was the one that has almost everything I need (as a business person, and a female traveler looking for comfort and relaxation). slept late (feel like at home!) There are fancy hotels that make you pay a lot for the room and for every single other item you need - here the location is fantastic, just in front of the Opera, still it is quiet enough since on the other side of the ring, and there is everything one might need in the room. The room is very spacious, wonderful bed and large wardrobes nice pictures on wall, and very nice subtle fragrance used (eg by the cedar hangars that smell nicely of wood inside the wardrobe and a faint insense smell in the bathroom I don't know where it comes from). Many hotel rooms almost make me faint from strong perfume or detergent smell but this room was very comfortable. Also the air-conditioning is controllable by yourself to any temperature. There is a Nespresso machine and big LCD screen, excellent wireless for free. The hotel spa and massage was also very nice (for European standards). Highly recommend staying here especially if you don't mind spending just a little bit more for great value.
