The Best Western Premier Harmonie is one of the nicest Best Westerns that I have stayed in around the world. Located in a very quiet part of Vienna, this hotel is modern, spotless and recently renovated in 2013.
Leafy vines skirt the outside of the hotel and a warm parlor with bright colors welcomes visitors on arrival. Complimentary cake is served in the cozy library during the afternoons.
The artwork throughout the hotel is based on ballet dancing and I was told that the owners are ballet fans. The lobby almost generates the feel of a theatre.
Rooms are spacious with a full-size bathroom and my mattress was extremely comfortable. I slept well during my stay which is always a plus. Delicious chocolates welcome visitors and the room itself is tastefully decorated. The room includes a mini-bar and for those trying to save money on food, there is a Spar supermarket about three blocks away.
The hotel includes a small gift shop for last minute gifts. Breakfast was delicious with buffet options of cakes, eggs, cold meat and cheeses, cereal (try the apple cinnamon muesli), breads and pastries. The hotel restaurant also has options in the evening including hamburgers, potato soup, veal goulash, spaetzle and chicken.
Central Vienna is not far as the nearest U-Bahn station (Schottentor Universitat) is about a ten minute walk. Visitors can also walk to the city center without taking the subway, which is about twenty minutes to Stephansplatz.
This hotel is in a residential part of Vienna and I felt a part of the fabric of the local community. The hotel is located near some unusual finds including a five to ten minute walk to the Freud Museum, a short walk to the gardens at the Palace Liechtenstein (if the weather is nice, try the outside bar in the gardens to sample local wines) or there is an actual chocolate factory nearby at a shop called Xocolat (address is Sevitengasse 5).
Staff at this hotel are friendly and helpful and I found myself not wanting to leave. This hotel is a first-rate experience for anyone wanting to stay in Vienna and I would happily stay here again and again. less
