"Great hotel near a lot of fun sites & restaurants"
Upon entering the hotel the first time, the staff were very friendly and interested in making your stay memorable. Getting around the hotel was very easy. Elevators and a decorated staircase provided access to all areas. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of typical European foods as well as some traditional American items. Once outside there were many cafes and restaurants in close proximity. Vienna's subway (U-bahn) was only a 6 minute walk in either direction.
Nice location in walking distance to the Opera, two tube and several tram lines. Slightly soulless entrance but very nice yard and extremely nice garden suits which give the impression to stay in the countryside rather than in the middle of the city. Very nice food and exceptional wine list in the restaurant. Extremely nice and helpful staff.
Walking distance to Vienna downtown. Safe, close to a metro station, nice breakfast, great service, very gentle assistance. I'd definitively stay at this hotel again... although would ask for a room with the TV located closer to bed.

I stayed here in July 2015 for 1 week while attending a conference. The hotel staff were very welcoming upon my arrival and dealt with check-in promptly which was greatly appreciated due to the long day of travelling. I was pleased to find air-conditioning in the room which, during the heatwave at that time of year, provided a great deal of comfort on the warmer nights.
My weeks stay went without problems, the breakfast provided is varied and caters to most people, however should you wish to eat elsewhere, the hotel's location provides excellent access to a variety of cafés and restaurants close by. The location also lends itself excellently to tourists, being located at a 5-10 minute walk from Karlzplatz and kärntner straße (one of the main shopping streets in Vienna).
I attended a dinner while I was in Vienna and the hotel helpfully provide irons and boards, this is available with a deposit of 10 euros.
I would recommend this hotel to those planning on visiting Vienna for both conferences and tourism and thank All You Need for making my stay an excellent one.
I was delayed getting into the city but my check-in was smooth at the hotel. The room was very clean, updated recently by the look of it. There was sufficient space, lots of character in the hotel in terms of its design and feel. There were many bars and cafe's close by which was ideal and the metro was a few minutes walk up the road so very easy to locate if you are a tourist.

I stayed in this hotel for one night after a very poor experience in a hotel down the road. I cannot recommend this place enough. I got there over an hour and a half before check in to find my room was ready for me. The staff were very pleasant. The double bed was comfortable. The free wifi was good. The breakfast was served from 7 til 11 but it wasn't the biggest selection. Still, it was included with the room so I can't complain. All in all, a very pleasant night.
Many of Vienna’s artistic and cultural celebrities live here. Wieden’s varied architecture includes fine examples of the Secession style (Art Nouveau) and the city’s most impressive Baroque church, Karlskirche. The Naschmarkt on the Wienzeile is Vienna’s liveliest market.
