The small hotel with 26 bedrooms is imbued with homelike atmosphere rarely found in a commercial establishment. This is not due to chance: It was the intention of owner Otto Wiesenthal from the start to provide guests with an extra measure of hospitality. Before opening his hotel in 1991, Herr Wiesenthal was in the computer business, where his unpleasant experiences with impersonal hotels inspired him to create an inn where guests are welcomed as friends. Located on a quiet side street outside the Inner Ring, the hotel is a 15-minute walk to the heart of Vienna. A staircase leads up one level to the reception area. The reception staff will gladly assist with sightseeing plans, dinner reservations and tickets for events. On the same floor there is a cozy lounge with an open fireplace, which is a popular meeting point for regular guests and local artists and musicians.
Dr. Marco Pongratz-Lippitt is a knowledgeable city guide who brings Vienna's history and present to life with light-footed and profound humour. Large connections become visible without getting lost in details. Together with him one walks for a few hours on side paths through the Danube metropolis and sees beside the important sights like the Hofburg, the Stephansdom and the city centre also some hidden, enchanting inner courtyards.

The hotel consists of three painstakingly restored buildings in the World Heritage Site Hallstatt. The main building was built over 500 years ago, making it the oldest structure in town. The expert renovation has enabled the facility to offer a high standard of modern comfort without sacrificing its historical character. Tucked in between majestic mountains and the stunning lake, the hotel enjoys an unsurpassed romantic setting. The rooms offer a standard of comfort that has enabled the accommodation to join the exclusive group of hotels known as Luxury Hotels of the World(SLH). The Hallstatt dock is directly in front of the building. The famous Drachstein Caves are just around the lake at Obertraun.
The 19th century villa, converted into a boutique hotel, is located in a residential area south of the Kapuzinerberg. Each of the 14 rooms is individually furnished and offers modern comfort. In the morning a rich breakfast buffet with local and seasonal specialities awaits and in good weather can also be served on a terrace in the garden with a natural pond. Those who want can take a stroll along the Salzach and reach the oldtown in approximately 15 minutes; with the bus (line 7), it takes about five minutes.
The palace in Dürnstein was built by a princess in 1632. She chose the location well: a high cliff overlooking the beautiful Danube as it winds through vineyards on the way to Vienna. Today the palace is a luxury Relais-et-Chateaux hotel considered one of the best properties in Austria. Read more→
