Expert review of Hotel Altstadt Vienna
What may seem a rather plain, almost nondescript, façade actually hides a marvellous contemporary art collection that reflects the personal taste and passion of owner, Simon Wiesenthal. Paired with unique accommodation and a home-from-home feel, a stay here will never be forgotten. Exquisitely decorated rooms and suites breathe a sigh of the past. Designer rooms by Mattheo Thun reveal a decadence that's sensuous and seductive.
Fairly central: it’s a 10-minute walk from the nearby tube station Volkstheater (U2, U3 - exit Volkstheater) to the Kirchengasse. Close by there's Vienna’s Spittelberg with its arts and crafts market, quirky bars and restaurants, and the tremendously popular MuseumsQuartier (MQ) is within walking distance.
The first time I visited this hotel and saw the rooms I was astonished at the size of most of them. Choose between the darker rooms, that exude an erotic glamour and were designed by Mattheo Thun, or timeless, lighter, classic modern styling. High ceilings, light wooden parquet floors, unusual light fittings/objects and contemporary art feature in all of the spacious rooms. Beds and mattresses are of the highest quality and some bathrooms come with large tubs, others with walk-in showers, all well equipped and serviced.
The cosy “Rote Salon” with very comfortable easy chairs, plump sofas, an open fireplace, piano and small bar is a superb place to sit and relax, enjoy a glass of wine, or a cup of tea and pastries (Afternoon Tea is served every day at 4pm).
Breakfast is included in the room rate and includes all the variety expected in a good buffet. The complimentary Afternoon Tea served with pastries is an added bonus after a day spent sightseeing - I tried the the apfelstrudel and went back for more!
Staff love working here and it shows. They are accommodating, helpful and friendly.
Business travellers, small groups from Germany and America, honeymooning couples, art lovers and singles.
