A year ago I wrote a scathing review of a hotel in Munich, and of the stilted, cold reception of staff almost everywhere.
I am delighted to report that in Vienna, AT people are tourist-friendly, smiling and most speak English.

After an initial doubt or two this hotel impressed us, helped by an inexpensive upgrade to one of the larger sixth floor 'penthouse' rooms (not quite as grand as that sounds) which gave us privacy, quiet, and lots of light (as well as exercise when...More
The hotel is very close to Rathaus and the Ring. With a Ubahn and Tram stop even closer. This makes the main group of sites almost on your doorstep. At the tram stop is Cafe Eiles with its fabulous atmosphere excellent food, coffee and cakes...More

The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at its finest: and this is what makes it popular with locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts have conquered distinctive places such as the Old General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of
overground U6. Theater in der Josefstadt on Josefstädter Strasse is the district’s cultural epicentre. Even if your German isn’t good enough to watch a play, you can marvel at the typical Biedermeier building and take a glimpse into the foyer. Lange Gasse houses an iconic local restaurant at its corner, as well as a legendary sweet shop and a bustling neighbourhood market every Saturday. For small palace atmosphere and a different view on Vienna’s history, make your way to Schönborn garden palace (Palais Schönborn), which houses the Museum of Folk and Folk Art (Volkskundemuseum). Maria-Treu-Platz, with its summer outdoor cafés facing baroque church Maria Treu, and the historic passageway of Lerchenfelder Strasse 13 hide top spots for insiders.
