Address: Mariahilfer Strasse 15, , Vienna, 1060, Austria

Star rating:
4 star hotel

4.5

An intimate, luxury boutique hotel that is great for shopping and sightseeing.

A small, but well-run and lovingly decorated charming hotel. What I like most is the attentiveness of the staff and the individual treatment given to guests. Also, this is the perfect neighbourhood for shopaholics and culture vultures. Notice the original features such as the lift with a wrought iron door and the winding stairs around it. Look out for the individual art on your way up.

Location

Centrally located at the beginning of the Mariahilfer Strasse – my favourite, and Vienna's longest, shopping street – the hotel is just across the road from the “MQ” or Museumsquartier; Vienna's largest cultural centre for contemporary art. Both the Museum of Fine Art and the popular Naschmarkt are within easy reach.

Two underground stations are only a short walk away. The hotel entrance can easily be overlooked, it is not directly on the main street but tucked away around the corner.

Bedrooms

Pleasant subtle greens, yellows and soft beige colours blend well with soft textile furnishings. Lots of artsy features, designer lamps, contemporary canvasses and your very own espresso machine help to add that special touch. Rooms do vary quite a bit in size, though, and among the thirty available some are much smaller than others. Accommodation is immaculately clean, very pleasantly furnished and has good-sized bathrooms fitted with either tubs or huge showers, and with bathrobes, slippers and luxury toiletries - this is my kind of place to stay. But do stress whether you want a smoking or non-smoking room when you book.

Public areas

The red leather sofas in the lobby offer seating from which to admire the artwork. There are a few steps to the lift. One computer is available for use and WiFi is available throughout the hotel.

Eating and drinking

An excellent buffet breakfast is included in the room rate and served in a pleasant bistro type café restaurant.

Leisure facilities

A small, but lovely, private spa (room for two) with sauna, steam room and shower is available free of charge – upon arrival, be sure to reserve your very own couple of hours there.

Service

What I like most is the friendly attentiveness of the staff and the charming way help and advice is given. I have witnessed staff members doing their best to help guests save money.

Who stays there

Business travellers, individual travellers, cosmopolitan travellers and leisure travellers. Very small American and German groups.
