From kings to presidents and Hollywood actors to opera singers. All have stayed at this amazing hotel in Vienna. All 149 rooms and suites are very distinctive, each with the name of an artist. Prices reach 4000 euros a night. The hotel is in the heart of the city, close to the tram. In the hotel restaurant, you can taste specialties of Austrian cuisine.
This hotel is very new, and is located just steps from the Belvedere. The decor is a bit basic, but everything is very smart, and the place is really welcoming. The rooms are a bit minimalistic, but the ones overlooking the Belvedere have a really nice hammock! Some of my travel companions found it a bit uncomfortable that there was no chair to hang things, but I don't care. You can buy some of the articles, like hammocks, and there's a cozy cafe complete with a bakery in the morning. Try the delicious muffins! Note: The staff is made up of guys here who have found a job, and therefore the possibility of rehabilitation, after leaving a community for drug addicts.
It isn´t centrally located, but it doesn´t necessarily need to be in order to be comfortable and very basic and, above all, reasonably priced. The distance to the airport is only twenty minutes by taxi and you can get there via a comfortable highway. Once at the hotel, we found a quick check-in and reception service, attentive and helpful. We went up to the room, which was spacious and clean and in my case with street views of Favoritenstrasse, a busy road but quiet with several supermarkets, restaurants, and even a pharmacy across the street. Nothing was lacking. Breakfast is abundant with a variety of breads seed, grain and white breads and croissants, meats, cheeses, fruits, yogurts, cereals, jams, teas and juices. The property was recently renovated, so we found it gleaming and ready for reviewing. As we left, to the right we found the subway station Südtiroler, which brings us, after 4 stops and a change, to the center of Vienna (Stephansplatz).
Without a doubt, this is the most beautiful hotel where we've had the opportunity to stay. It's a very attractive property, with nice views of the city of Vienna. The duplex suite - "only" 250 a night - is nevertheless cheaper than the equivalent quality in many other European cities, and offers champagne and canapes, as well as time in the salon. The spa is well worth a visit, and the breakfast buffet is delicious.
