Central, cozy and quiet family-run pension - really a budget accommodation in the heart of Vienna!
Charming interior with artistic decor, musical ambience and a flavour of Austro-Hungarian history .
The owners (Nikola & Galina Mauracher) are very friendly and welcoming. Their personal attention made our visit much more enjoyable . We immediately felt welcome, which was important to us, being that this was our first time visiting beautiful Vienna, and we did not know what to expect . First impressions are important, and Herr Nikola made our introduction a smooth and friendly one . He and his wife Galina are most hospitable, intelligent and friendly people . It was an absolute pleasure getting to know this lovely couple .
The location is fantastic, just off Mariahilferstrasse, which means a simple walk to subway, shops, the Museum Quarter and to the central old city .
We had a comfortable, tidy and quiet room with TV, fridge, safe, kettle, and Wi-Fi. Fresh towels every day, clean linens, very elegant newly remodeled shower room.
There is a good selection of food available at breakfast time in the so-called “Ritterstube” (“Knights’ dining room”) . Every taste would be catered for on a self-service table : three kinds of meat and sausage, two kinds of cheese, selection of packaged yoghurt, two kinds of bread, fried eggs, boiled vegetables, pancakes. Coffee (including espresso from coffee-machine) and tea. There are fruits and sweets available in the foyer . We would especially like to mention the lovely young lady Yelena who took care of breakfast .
The owners even have their own lovely dachshund dog Berry and parrots !
What’s not to like ? Everything was OK – excellent value for your money . We thought that we would sacrifice the quality of service for the lower price . But we didn’t have to sacrifice anything at all .
Near the end of our stay, Herr Nikola offered that he could take us to the airport at a reasonable price . This was perfect for us .
