I'm usually not a fan of 'arty' hotels. Most European Capitals seems to have them and they are usually shambolic, uncomfortable and 'amateurish'. However the Hotel Altstadt stands above the crowd because it houses the owners rich and eclectic art collection. Paintings, photos and sculptures adorn the rooms which are spread out over a few floors of a Viennese apartment house. Breakfast was a classy continental offering with good breads, freshly squeezed juices and a really good selection of teas... Read more

The Hotel Altstadt is tries really hard to deliver a unique, quirky experience in its art filled rooms and corridors. Some of the people staffing the reception desk were brilliantly helpful while others were indifferent. The restaurant was about the same. Great poached eggs one morning and the next morning's cook served something that seemed to have been meant for egg drop soup. The management seems to rely on personality rather than designing consistently superior experience. Another exam... Read more

We were fortunate to be staying on the 25th anniversary of the hotel. Testament to the staff that the hotel is so well loved by everyone that stays, that over 300 people turned out for the celebration. The rooms are very individual and of a high standard, with the art work throughout the hotel making you feel more at home than a hotel.

We stayed in Saskia Suite and loved the space and feel of it. The staff are so friendly, especially the breakfast staff. We loved all the different little salon rooms for breakfast which ensured that it never felt busy.

The best restaurants are often distinguished by having real flowers in and around the place. This is an indication of how much passion they have for what they do; if they can only be bothered to have plastic flowers then the same "that'll do" attitude normally extends to the food but if they care enough to have real flowers, well... you get the picture. Hotel Altstadt goes to the trouble of having fresh flowers in the guest rooms and even in the elevator! The hotel is also stuffed with works of... Read more

We were really looking forward to staying at this hotel, which we booked through the SLH (Small Luxury Hotels) website. The sales pitch for SLH is that members get free room upgrades 'when available' but - just like all the other 7 or 8 SLH hotels we have stayed at over the last few years, Altstadt didn't offer us one either. The room we got was clean and comfortable but nothing special at all. It had a 'courtyard' view - in fact a view of a roof over what is presumably a courtyard, otherrwi... Read more

Well situated hotel, which was almost faultless. Nice staff, quick check in, well designed and appointed room. The only real negative was that the two bedroom we rented had a layout of lounge, bedroom 1, bedroom 2, bathroom and then toilet. So getting to the bathroom from lounge and first bedroom meant going through 2nd bedroom.

I have realised over the course of my travels that what makes a place truly special for us is the warmth and hospitality -- or lack thereof. Hence, our love for Italy. I have to say that overall, I found Austria pretty disappointing in this aspect. Most of the places we visited seemed to treat non-Germans/Austrians (especially the non-white ones!) as burdens to be borne for the sake of their money. Not so the Hotel Altstadt. We found the service -- especially Elena Covelli who is an absolute swe... Read more

I had a conference for two days and then two days to be a visitor. A very good base for that. I had a suite, that was very pleasant. The reception is upstairs, and is beautifully designed, with very pleasant and efficient staff. Next door is one of the prettiest salons I have seen. It is divided into several areas, each with a unique design. This is the breakfast areas. There are two old slow clunky elevators around the corner from each other, which adds to the eclectic tone of the hotel. The ro... Read more

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. This hotel is located close to the museum quarter. We had a suite which was comfortable and nicely furnished. The bathroom was very small and cramped but had a tub, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. The breakfast was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had at a hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. I would definitely return.

Staying at Altstadt Hotel you don't really feel like living in a hotel, you feel like living in a comfortable and cosy home. I like very much the restaurant area and the The Red Salon. I stayed in the apartment Sari's Home where I felt excellent. There was even a little kitchen. The breakfast is the best hotel breakfast you can ever get. The hotel is very near to Museumsquartier, to the U-Bahn, the Mariahilfer Strasse and it is situated in the Spittelberg Quarter with very nice restaurants.

Located in the Neubau area just outside the city centre, the Altstadt is surrounded by interesting shops and nice restaurants (no decent coffee shops though!). One of its greatest assets is its staff, all of whom we found to be polite, friendly, efficient and obliging. We had an issue with the room we were initially assigned, but fortunately another one, which had a much nicer aspect and lots of natural light, was quickly offered in its place. The room was also extremely spacious and had lovely ... Read more

Difficult to get in and out of hotel - too many turns inside and high and low spots on floor (suitcases don't roll) - too many locks to get to room. We asked staff for other restaurant recommendations and they claimed not to know of any that wasn't on their 10 listed - "none in area" they said - we found quite a few. It seems they didn't want to help us in any way with that. We made arrangements to have coffee because we were leaving early the next day - it never came! Don't like this hotel ... Read more
