    I like to have shampoo and conditioner for my hair. Only liquid soap was available, but I was prepared.

    The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I felt like they really cared that we were comfortable. The hotel was quite charming and had the feel of true Vienna.

    A 110 year old family managed well maintained hotel

    The property has heating but no cooling facility. Hence in Summer it can get quite hot, though the ceilings are quite high.

    This is a 110 year old property, run by the fourth generation of the family. Hence management and hospitality are of a high order. One must meet Oscar, the dog, who is very well behaved and is the first receptionist. The location is close to a Metro station.

    The rooms are a bit worn out and need a kind of refreshement. Maybe a bit pricey .

    The staff is excellent and always willing to help. There is a familial ambience and a cosy breakfast room. The breakfast is very very good.

    That we had to say goodbye!

    Everything was perfect... The ladies were absolutely lovely, our room was large and gorgeous with high ceilings, breakfast in the antique decorated breakfast room was delicious (highly recommend the omelette with ham!), our bed was super comfortable with beautiful linen. Highly recommend staying at this beautiful property for anyone visiting Vienna. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful!

    I am not sure, but I think that curtain on bathroom window was not opaque enough, and people from the street could see me :)

    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    This is one of the friendliest, charming and sweetest hotels we have ever been to. We was a bit unsure when we booked since the room didn't have its own toilett. But this showed not to be a problem at all. The room was spacious, had its own shower and handwash and a big double bed - we felt like home immediately. The hotel is located about 10 minutes with the subway outside the centre, but it is close to both bus, tram and subway. We went many places and never had any problems getting around. There are so many positive things to say, but best of all is the service and hospitality, both from the staff and the owners! And the breakfast of course :) Recomended for anyone who wants a truly authentic experience when visiting Vienna,
