The World acclaimed Vienna Ballet theme is in a class of it's own. Beautifully designed rooms and extremely comfortable for sleeping or just relaxing. The hospitality received from front desk employees is evidence of a constructive team, with priority bestowed upon guests to ensure a welcomed and locally informative experience.
Breakfast was typical of the European buffet spread, delicious selection part of which included cheeses, fruits, cereals, eggs, hot & cold meats available; also juices, sparkling wine and table service for coffee and tea. The breakfast room provides an inviting, bright and cozy nook. In a similar room, there was a complimentary afternoon tea available.
My only issues were the air-conditioning struggled to cool, it's possible it was turned off for the Winter and Vienna sported a few warmer winter days. And the shower was quirky, it was ergonomically difficult to wash my hair without water spraying the bathroom floor. The bathroom was otherwise well accommodated, impeccably clean and modern with ample counter space for personal items. The one elevator was a little slow and reminiscent of the age of the building.
The rooms have black-out blinds for a solid rest, and the windows also open to enjoy fresh air. You will also find soft robes available.
Although the location is a good hike, or quick train/bus journey to the downtown portion of Vienna, there is a lovely quiet vibe of the local area, still within a few blocks of unique things to see & explore. Such as oldest restaurant in Vienna(?!), this one is for the locals, and just a few minutes away; also, Johann Strauss museum, Liechtenstein Palace (impressive, yet sadly not open to public), and a strangely quiet historic Jewish cemetery hidden in the back streets, to name a few.
For genuine hospitality and a cozy and restful stay, this hotel is a must! less
