Trip Advisor Best hotel imaginable I have stayed in three different suites at Hotel Altstadt and all three have been fantastic experiences. I particularly like the Josef Frank suite. The staff is warm, friendly and always ready to assist. Breakfast lovely and has all the ussual stuff plus some additional surprises. The art is great and in a way it is like living in an art gallery with comfortable beds. Bathrooms are the cleanest I have ever experienced. Location great. Just a lovely place and people. _helene_tiedemann, Stockholm. June 2016
Trip Advisor Absolutley perfect! Beautiful clean room. Delicious buffet breakfast with freshly made omelettes. The nicest most helpful staff that always had a smile and eager to assist with anything you needed. The location is great, approx 7 min walk to the subway and museum quarter, and in a beautiful quiet area with great restaurants and cafes. A special hotel with wonderful atmosphere and great staff!! To sum it up- it was perfect! yk66, Toronto. July 2016
Trip Advisor Americans in Austria The beautiful Hotel Altstadt in Vienna has been on our minds since our fabulous stay last March. We (family of 5) could not say enough good things about our stay at the Hotel Alstadt. From the moment we checked in until the moment we left we enjoyed every aspect of the hotel and it's wonderful staff and especially the owner, Otto. Absolutely everything/everyone made our stay in VIenna a trip to remember. Cynthia100261, San Francisco. June 2016
Trip Advisor Awesome hotel and outstanding service! Room was very nice and the hotel had everything just outstanding especially the staff that were just SUPER. We would not only recommend but whenever we come to Vienna will stay there. The building is historic and the location is very close to major landmarks. Rahul C., Dallas. June 2016
Trip Advisor Oasis of calm in Vienna Elegant hotel in great location with warm, friendly and kind staff. Quiet, uniquely furnished rooms which give a sense of living in Vienna rather than staying in a hotel.Great location for walking to main sights. Johnathatcher, Bristol. June 2016

Trip Advisor Ein Traum Super Hotel, perfekt zum Wohlfühlen, stilvoll, besonders, liebevoll, mit Blick für das Andere... Und die Krönung war der Nachmittagstee im Salon mit Miles Davis-Musik aus einer Super Anlage. Wirklich rundrum toll! Andreas_Hope-Valley, Köln. Mai 2016
Trip Advisor Immer wieder Geniale Lage, wunderschönes Haus, tolle Kunst, sehr schönes Ambiente. Angenehme Gäste . Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Man hat den Eindruck, in einem normalen Wohnhaus zu wohnen. Die Zielgruppe ist der eher kunstinteressierte, gebildete Reisende, der gerne schön wohnt, aber das riesige unpersönliche Hotel meidet. gabriellaFrankfurt. Juni 2016
Trip Advisor Eine Perle mitten in Wien Ein altes Wohngebäude wurde in ein Hotel umgewandelt - einfach wunderbar! Die Zimmer sind schön, teilweise modern, teilweise klassisch eingerichtet. Das Frühstück im Salon ist köstlich. Die Auswahl ist hervorragend. sirbaginit, Schweiz. Mai 2016
Trip Advisor Das Altstadt ein Fest fürs Leben Ins Altstadt zu kommen, ist stets wie heim zu kommen und dennoch Neues zu erleben. Besonders freundliche Mitarbeiter, Frühstück einfach toll, die Kunst immer ein Hingucker, die Zimmer sind immer wieder eine Überraschung und bei schönem Wetter auf der Terrasse über den Dächern von Wien zu sitzen ist einmalig. Lydia N, Baden. Juni 2016
Trip Advisor Beste Adresse in Wien Altstadt Vienna ist österreichische Gastlichkeit in Reinkultur mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail, es bleiben keine Wünsche offen. Otto Wiesenthal versteht es immer wieder eine perfekte Inszenierung ins Altstatt Vienna zu bringen. gkoller. Juni 2016
Trip Advisor Sensationelles Boutiquehotel und aussergewöhnlicher Service Das Hotel Altstadt übertrifft jegliche 5* Häuser um den Ring. Die Zimmer sind wunderschön modern eingerichtet, ruhig zu einem Innenhof, zentrale Lage. Das Hotel Altstadt kann ich jedem nur wärmstens empfehlen, die sich ein schönes Wochenende machen möchten, beruflich unterwegs sind oder einfach mal den Kopf freikriegen wollen. Cow_and_bull.

Guest Book Absolutely loved Vienna Hotel was fantastic, friendly service and best breakfast. White+Guzzoni, Australia. January 2016.
Trip Advisor “Vacation” It has been 15 years since I visited the fantastic hotel for the first time. Although the hotel has been bigger with more rooms and facilities, the attentive hospitality remains the same as they were a small and cozy accommodation. The area is, candidly, not so attractive (it is a residential area, not for tourists) , but it is worthy of visiting. No dinner is served, but you can ask staff reputable restaurants within a walking distance! marikovin, Tokio. December 2015.
Trip Advisor “Super Fun Hotel, Great Rooms!” The Altstadt was a fabulous hotel for our family of five. Our two rooms were adjoining and they were so spacious, with plenty of room for five adults! The staff is warm and welcoming .... very smart and able to offer great advice, easy-to-follow directions, and even step-by-step instructions for using the public transportation system. The bathrooms are very up-to-date, with fantastic showers. The decor is modern, sophisticated funky and very comfortable. The breakfast was included and offered something for everyone. Every day a hot special breakfast is offered along with several different buffets for those who like to serve themselves. The dining areas were comfortable and homey. Food is available almost 24-hours a day and we came home one night to have a cocktail in the "living room", which was very relaxing. On the whole, an A+ experience. We loved it! JRO487, Los Angeles. December 2015
Trip Advisor “A Gem…Great Location, Excellent Service” Once you get past the first floor entryway, you'll find an incredible boutique hotel experience on the floors above. Excellent, helpful employees…a delicious breakfast…a warm and friendly evening bar. We loved our stay at Hotel Altstadt and would definitely recommend this to our friends visiting Vienna. anniegbalto, Maryland. December 2015
Trip Advisor Fabulous quirky hotel This is a special boutique hotel. The bedrooms are all different but that doesn't stop them being comfortable. The staff go out of their way to help. You can't fault it. The bar at night was a great place to relax after a long day with friendly staff and a cosy atmosphere. Charlotte M, UK. December 2015
Trip Advisor Well-Done Eclectic Hotel with Friendly Staff Great boutique style hotel. Our rooms were so spacious, quiet and styled with interesting artwork. Also, our overhead shower was amazing! The price of the hotel is absolutely worth it. Right by the city center in a cute artsy neighborhood. CC O, California. December 2015
Trip Advisor Boutique hotel that offers a nice experience We stayed here in December and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is not you usual hotel, the rooms all vary in size and shape. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is excellent. The staff helped with tram tickets, restaurant reservations, directions and favorite Christmas markets. The location is very convenient to lots of things. The breakfast buffet is wonderful! There was the choice of two specials each morning along with a wonderful meat and cheese area and yogurt with fruits and multiple breads and jams and jellies. the dining areas are nice and light filled -- a very relaxing way to start your day!! Traveler CT, Arkansas. January, 2016.
Trip Advisor Wonderful hotel in an interesting part of Vienna We stayed at this very stylish hotel twice during our recent Christmas/New Years and both stays were great. It's an excellent hotel, well situated with very friendly and helpful staff. Generous buffet breakfast, good restaurant options nearby. Beds were particularly comfortable. We had the impression nothing was too much trouble. katiemagpie, London. January, 2106.
Trip Advisor Beautiful hotel The hotel is in a gorgeous historical building. It's very close to the centre without being too noisy. Staff are very friendly, cheerful and helpful. Breakfast was delicious - lots of organic food to choose from. Room was clean and very bright with huge original windows. We had a lovely view of a church tower.evulienka88, Switzerland. January 2016
Trip Advisor Ein Hotel nicht wie alle Anderen Ausgezeichneter Service in bester Lage. Geniale und creative Ausstattung, Frühstück nur mit erlesenen und lokalen Zutaten, für Allergiker, Kinder, Musiker, Morgenmuffel und alle anderen total geeignet. Alles ist so nachhaltig und ecofreundlich wie möglich, total vorbildlich. Ein echter Erfrischer! Kann ich jedem NUR empfehlen. Simone A., Indien. Dezember, 2015
Trip Advisor Haus mit Seele Kompetentes Personal, freundlilche, persönliche Betreuung. Gute Lage des Hauses. Wunderschöne individuelle Zimmer. Man fühlt sich wie in einer Kunstausstellung, die zum Leben erweckt wurde. Haus mit Wiener-Charme. Eveline B131, Schweiz. Dezember, 2015
Trip Advisor Zum Wiederkommen Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen und stets hilfsbereit betreut. Die stilvollen Räume sind geschmackvoll eingerichtet und die Lage des Hotels in Fussdistanz zu Museen und Hofburg. Das Frühstücksbuffet sieht auch um halb elf noch wie neu aus. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber und bestens ausgerüstet, z.B. mit eigener Kaffeemaschine. Wir waren zum ersten Mal in Wien, werden aber beim nächsten Mal sicher wieder im Altstadt Vienna wohnen. s_schnidrig, Schweiz. Jänner 2016.
Trip Advisor “Tolles Hotel mit super netten Personal” Die Lage ist perfekt!! Wer mit der CAT vom Flughafen bis Wien Mitte fährt, muss von dort in die Ubahn steigen und nach 4 Stationen am Volkstheater aussteigen. Von dort sind es dann nur noch ca. 6 Gehminuten bis zum Hotel. Gerade zur Weihnachstmarktzeit ist die Lage des Hotels sehr schön, weil es direkt am Spittelberg liegt. Und am Spittelberg ist einer der schönsten Weihnachtsmarkte in Wien. Die Zimmer sind wohl alle anders und individuell eingerichtet. Schöner Altbau-Charm mit hohen Decken, Doppeltüren und einem schönen/alten Parkettboden. Es gibt eine Minibar, kostenloses Wlan und eine Nespresso Maschine incl. Kapseln auf dem Zimmer. Das Frühstück ist sehr lecker mit viel Auswahl und auch dort ist der Service Weltklasse. Ich kann das Hotel auf jeden Fall mit gutem Gewissen weiterempfehlen. Hirogen, Düsseldorf. November 2015.
Trip Advisor “in Wien zu Hause” Ein wirklich schönes und außergewöhnliches Hotel im Herzen von Wien. Man braucht eigentlich kein Taxi. Von hier ist alles zu Fuß gut zu erreichen. Das Hotel ist zu empfehlen. Das Frühstück war sehr gut. Und der Salon für die Abendstunden absolut perfekt. SamiaaufReisen, Köln. November, 2015
Tripadvisor “Einfach rundum perfekt - das findet man selten” Selten habe ich so ein gepflegtes, liebevoll gestaltetes (ein gediegenes Patrizierhaus), hervorragend bedientes und herzlich willkommen-heissendes Hotel erlebt. Das Frühstücksbuffet war ganz wunderbar und liess keine Wünsche offen, mein Bett war hervorragend (das gibt es selten), die Damen an der Rezeption nicht nur gutaussehend sondern überaus freundlich (man half mir mit allen möglichen Kabeln aus, die ich vergessen hatte). Auch die Preis-Leistung stimmt rundum. Sehr empfehlenswert. Snugnu, Zürich, August 2015
Tripadvisor “The perfect hotel” We spent two great nights at this hotel! The staff is super nice and friendly and we felt very welcome! The hotel is very well maintained and everything is perfectly clean. They put so much thought into every little detail! It feels like staying with friends rather than being at a hotel. Part of this might be caused by the rather uncommon architecture of this hotel. But again, that's what makes this place so charming! And on top of all these already great experiences comes the breakfast! This is probably the most delicious breakfast I've had! I absolutely loved their daily specials!!!And yet again the attention to the detail and the lovely staff made this an exceptionally positive memory! I will most definitely return to this wonderful place and can only recommend it for everyone who wants to visit Vienna! By the way, the neighborhood is great too! It's a very artsy, young neighborhood, with lovely little street bars and restaurants and nice boutiques. It is in walking distance from the city centre and a lovely place to stay, because it does not feel very touristic, but rather like a place where locals would spend their evenings on a nice night out. JKLunes, Luxemburg, August 2015
Tripadvisor “Fun, quirky hotel in great location!” We stayed here for two nights and only wished we could've stayed longer. The rooms are amazing, each on is uniquely decorated to feel like to are staying in an apartment rather than a hotel. It really added fun to our visit to Vienna. The breakfast was wonderful as was the coffee in the room. The location was perfect! We would definitely stay here again. Our 10 and 12 year old loved the experience! Ann S, Michigan, August 2015
Tripadvisor "Historic hotel building with a twist" We booked this hotel, as we enjoy staying somewhere with a bit of character and individuality, when our budget allows. (...)The hotel only takes up part of the building as some parts are actually lived in. Its such an elegant building, like much of Vienna's wonderful buildings and architecture it oozes character. (...)The breakfast was superb, you could have cooked eggs along with a whole array of cereals, cheese, meat, bread and juice. We even had some french toast, which was very tasty. Staff are friendly and helpful, lots of information given to us. We had a drink in the bar, which wasn't overpriced. When we checked out we were even given a chocolate bar! Would totally recommend this lovely hotel with lots of character and art to look at. Mrs-Moondog, London, Sept. 2015
Tripadvisor "The most wonderful hotel in Vienna" Easily among the best hotels we have ever stayed in! The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the breakfast is outstanding and the afternoon tea&cake break is great. Our room was very spacious, bright and clean. Location is great, short walk from museums, the palace, nice cafes and restaurants, and extremely safe. We recommend this place to everyone! agamariap, Polen, Sept. 2015
Tripadvisor “Exellent lovely hotel in excelent location in Viena, Mostly Recomenned !!!” Friendly stuff from the reception, dining room, room service and maids. The room was newly renovated lovely and plenty of space. the bathroom was excellent in size and appearance. Lovely view from the window. Excellent breakfast buffet with a very large selections. The reception staff (all of them) were very helpful in kind of recommendation and instruction. A very great place to stay in Vienna, I have already recommended to my brother and my friends. isaroz, Israel, Sept. 2015
Tripadvisor "Great stay in Vienna" I loved everything about the Hotel Altstadt. It felt like we were visiting old friends. The staff was super friendly. The location is great. The design of the rooms is wonderful. Breakfast was amazing with tons of salmon, meats and cheeses, various breads and baked treats, yogurt, fruit, etc. Also loved that they provided a list of 10 recommended local restaurants. Overall, a delightful stay! John123, New York, N.Y., Sept. 2015
Tripadvisor “An intellectual and arty spot for people who love luxury with a perfect taste.” Everything was perfect from the check in till the check out including comfy cosy beds, remarkable bathrooms, excellent organic breakfast, and smile on every face of the staff who make you feel more than welcome at home. Noemibrunet, Frankreich, Sept. 2015
Booking "Great hotel for couples" It was our 3rd stay in this hotel. All was great! In our opinion best hotel in Vienna. Vadim, Russland. August 2015
Tripadvisor "A romantic charming hotel that will linger in memory" Like all the other reviewers, i loved the classy yet funky european interior with vibrant art pieces. We appreciated the thoughtful little touches - the fresh peony, the apples and sweets, the chocolate wafer upon check out. sporeantraveller. Service was excellent - from check in to out. Breakfast spread was scrumptious and beautifully laid out in the cosy salon- a highlight of our stay. Carpark was secure and just a short walk away. We stayed for 2 nights only and left full of regrets that we couldn't stay longer. sporeantraveller. Juni 2015
guest book Outstanding Outstanding Service, very charming staff, thank you. Jarvis, Bristol. June 2015
