Most wonderful 2 days spent in this beautiful Vienna hotel. Our room was on 4th floor overlooking the garden, even with a balcony. The room was large with sofa/tv - even a fireplace! Separate toilet and corner bath/shower. Comfortable bed and plenty of storage space. Tea/Coffee making facilities with free bottled water.
Breakfast was exceptional - yoghurts/fruit/cheese/meats/all sorts of bread/pastries and the owner's special scrambled egg.
On the U3 line - head towards Simmering - get off at Rochusgasse station. Then you need the exit for Hainburger Strasse - up the escalator and you will see ahead on your left is a HOTEL sign - this is Spiess & Spiess - a very short walk - perhaps 2 minutes. Entrance has several steps, so be aware of that if you have lots of luggage, though reception will help you.
The area surrounding the hotel seemed very safe, and there are several shops just a short walk away down the alleyway.
I shall definitely stay here on my next trip.
We were upgraded to a suite, which was awesome. One and 1/2 baths, separate living room, huge bathroom, I felt like I had my own apartment in Vienna. Not as close to the old stadt, but close to the Bellvedere Palace and St. Peters Church, and there is a fun brewery restaurant nearby. Close to public transportation to get anywhere. Very easy to get to the airport as the S bahn station is just at the end of the street which connects in one stop to the train to the airport.
The hotel is only a ten-minute ride by tram from the Hofburg. The staff was friendly and very helpful and responsive to any of our requests. Breakfast is extra but worth considering for the many choices available, including three-minute eggs with serving cup! We noticed many tourists, some with family, but it has a definite businessperson clientele. Not to be missed is the wine bar featuring excellent local wine right in the lobby. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Vienna is a beautiful city and most of the notable sights are concentrated in the centre, easily reachable by trams and metro, both close to the hotel. At check in, I asked if I could have a room with a nice view, and was given a room on the top floor with view towards some picturesque buildings and a historic theatre. Hotel is short walking distance from the Belvedere (palace and fort). Also close to a war memorial with large illuminated fountains, 10 minute walk to the main pedestrianised shopping area, and 15 minutes to St Stephen's cathedral.
The hotel is simple and unadorned and within easy walking distance of the centre of town. We walked to it from the CAT station, about 15-20 minutes away with hand luggage!
It is right next to Schloss Belveder, a must see for art lovers, and just a few steps from a guide book recommended Austrian restaurant in a beer cellar, which we sampled twice.
Breakfast at the hotel was excellent: choice, variety, flavour.
The bedroom was adequate but tended to overheat at night, so we opened the windows!
Vienna’s third postal district east of the city centre has medieval origins and now features many important sights and embassies. Another much-visited attraction is a visually interesting housing development called the Hundertwasserhaus.
