Travel Blogs from Vienna
We will be leaving Vienna today. It'll be a bit sad because I like Vienna. It's very clean and easy to get around. The people are friendly, except for rush hour on the subway, and are laid back. We decided to have an easy day in the morning. We went to breakfast and our favourite Austrian cook was there. He came over and fussed over Pamela making …
The plan for today is to do a walking tour of Vienna and visit a couple of sites along the way. We have breakfast early at the Hotel/accommodation (not sure what category to put it in but it's pretty quirky) and I'm looking forward to some eggs. Wow. The Austrians definitely eat differently for breakfast. I must admit though I did have the option …
We are still on the train into Vienna. We left Venice last night at 9pm and it is 6 am now. The attendant came and put our beds down and I went straight off to sleep. There were numerous stops last night but I missed most of them. At a couple of points the train stops for about an hour. What happens is that say the last four carriages on the train …
... filled with human bones. I'm talking piled to the ceiling! They said there were thousands of peoples bones from the Black Plague! They didn't believe in cremation, so they had to put them somewhere. I've never seen anything like it! Crazy. We also went to a house that Mozart lived in , and now it's a museum dedicated to him. That was interesting. He was a crazy dude. We ate sausage with sauerkraut and potatoes, and goulash soup for dinner. It was delicious. We switched ...
... and our waitress was telling us about how she loves visiting Pittsburg and gave us some tips on what to see here. She was delightful, until she started getting pretty racist. She started telling us about how we could really do without certain ethnic groups around here. It started getting weird and I could tell Amie's ears were starting to melt off and I think I saw flames in her eyes so we got out of there shortly ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hollmann Beletage Vienna
This is one of the best hotels we have stayed anywhere in the world. The staff were wonderful and couldn't be more helpful. They were very knowledgeable about Vienna advising on the best places to see, eat and drink. They recommned one particular restaurant which had wonderful Wienner Schnitzels.
Beletage: A lovely haven in Vienna
We had the most enjoyable stay at the Hollmann Beletage. The rooms are wonderfully designed and cosy and the staff is so friendly and helpful. They will give you the best tips for restaurants and cafes in Vienna. The breakfast was also delicious and is differs every day. We're looking forward to our next stay in this great city and the Beletage.
Perfect hideaway in Vienna
Stayed there with my girlfriend for 2 days, visiting Vienna's superbe christmas markets. Can't imagine any better place for vacation in Vienna. Located in the perfect center of the city, you will find the major attraction sights in walking distance. The very helpful Staff recommended wonderful restaurants, among them Oswald & Kalb. The hotel has only 9 rooms, but that makes you really a special and personal guest! Breakfast was outstanding, no average breakfast buffet, but personalized breakfasts adapted to your own wishes and demands. Never seen before... All in all I can only recommend this place to every one else. I will surely come back soon...
Had a fabulous stay at the Hollmann Beletage in Vienna on a short break visit this summer. Despite the lack of a conventional hotel entrance and lobby, this is an entrancing, well-designed and comfortable place to stay. Furnishings and fittings are high quality and stylish. The staff are both professional and welcoming. The breakfasts are excellent.
Best ever 9 room hotel!
Stayed 2 nights but could have stayed for ever. BIG comfortable rooms, fantastic breakfast and super service. Only (small) negative point was the design of the bathroom as most of the shower water escapes the very narrow showerscreen and floor gets flooded.
What a wonderful place to stay.
This is a new pension/hotel just 5 minutes walk from St. Stephen's Cathedral. It is a fantastic place: located on a third floor of an older building, the pension is decorated in stark modern furniture that is both beautiful and functional. The breakfasts are fantastic. The price, for its location, is a real bargain. There are so many good restaurants in the vicinity that you don't have to travel far for good food, but the metro is just a short walk away. This is such a special place I hate to advertize it as there are only 9 rooms, but it deserves any attention it gets.
The best hotel of our trip!
Wow! What a discovery! A fantastic 9 room boutique hotel that I almost don't want to tell people about in case it's booked out the next time I'm in Vienna! Huge rooms, awesome amenities and fantastic breakfasts! We took two rooms, one for us, a friend and our 2 year old; plus another for my parents. The rooms were more than big enough for four of us and our luggage. The location is excellent, so close to major sights and shopping strips, a supermarket across the road and not on a main street so it's quiet. The staff are exceptional. They spoke beautiful English and were very obliging and friendly. Irina (the receptionist) even babysat for us one night! We loved the look of the hotel - especially the orange highlights. Can't recommend it enough. You won't be disappointed.
I really couldn't suggest anything to improve this hotel. We had despaired at the ugly and overpriced options we had been looking at before we found this place on the internet, and we leapt on it immediately, although it's a bit more than we normally spend.
Very wonderful stay
I agree with the above review.
We also stayed in a Residence Room. It was larger than a typical European hotel room. We did ask to see other rooms while there and they were smaller but still clean and nice.
The staff was charming - breakfast was great.
The inn is located on the third floor of a building in a quiet neighborhood. We felt like we were living in an old-world European apartment!
The location is incredibly convenient - just a few minutes walk from 2 different subway lines. It was also a short walk to the Opera.
I would absolutely stay there again.
My husband and I stayed at the Hollmann Beletage for 3 nights in early September. We stayed in a "Residence" room at a rate of €160 per night. The staff was friendly and spoke English. The room was very spacious and clean. The bathroom was well-equipped and included a hairdryer. The room was individually temperature controlled with A/C. We were thankful for the A/C since it was warm in Vienna during our stay. The bed was very comfortable with fluffy pillows (slept great). The windows had soundproofing (never heard any street noise during the night). The hotel is in a great location on a relatively quiet street. A small grocery store is across the street (convenient for bottled water, etc.) Stephansdom is less than a 5-minute walk. The Schweden Platz subway station is only a 2-minute walk. Breakfast was included in the rate and was good. It included a plate of meats, cheeses, and fresh cut fruit brought to your table, bread basket, eggs cooked to order, and cereal. Extra special touches like fresh fruit and fresh cut flowers in the room were nice. The only improvement they could make would be to have better soundproofing from the lobby/reception area which is located right outside the rooms. Fortunately, this was not a big problem during our stay. Overall, this was a great value and we would definitely stay here again.
