Style and substance, a perfect hotel.
I stayed here in January for a short weekend holiday with my dad. I’d liked the look of the hotel from the photos, it looked modern, fresh & stylish but I couldn’t tell how much more than stylish it would be!
From the very first, the man on reception was exceptionally friendly, welcoming and helpful, explaining tramlines to the attractions we were interested in, suggesting walks and organising tickets. (It has proved to be a brilliantly situated hotel if you’re interested in going to the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Opera, or Belvedere, as the D-Tramline is a direct route.)
Once we got to our rooms, deluxe doubles, they were very spacious with high ceilings, modern interiors (a welcome change from a lot of Vienna’s stuffy & dated interiors), calming and bright, with comfortable beds, very generous and handsome bathrooms and easy to use heating/air con, lighting and facilities. The street is very quiet and the night sleep very good. The TV is rather a mystery to unravel but I’m not that interested in watching German language cable anyway!
The breakfast room is gorgeous and the food delicious, the selection of cereals with all manner of seeds and fruits is so unusual and a welcome healthy option in a place famous for cake!
All in all, just what I want in a hotel, I wouldn’t hesitate to say the best hotel I’ve stayed in. Style is nothing without service and this place has delivered it without over-attentiveness, but with real enthusiasm.
I would recommend it for couples, gay and straight, (I’m sure they’d be welcoming to all), older friends, family groups, business trippers, and art/design enthusiasts, perhaps not children or young families so much as it’s quite smart and they might break the peaceful atmosphere, though I’d hate to put anyone off!
Thanks Harmonie Hotel for the perfect stay x less
