... going to be a few pieces but Jamie thought they sounded good so went for it. What came out was two fore-arm length monsters covered in marinade and garlic served with giant chips. See the cutlery in the photo for perspective. Amazing. Everyone got a couple and I ate my share of hers after polishing off mine.. Definitely one of my favourite restaurants of all time!
Next morning was the train to Salzburg so got up and packed up and onto the meto across the train station and beyond!
... an executive decision was made and we decided to save it for Sunday . Gaining a vibe that like most places in Europe everything would be shut we decided to leave all the Christmas markets until then. Once again like every hostel this one presented another new problem, slobs. With a clear distinct lack of communication between the economic migrants and management we soon found ourselves struggling for clean dishes and being kept awake with late Romanian phone ...
... I did not use any of them at first. I got a great refresher lesson in inertia. Pamela heard me laugh at myself from outside. I held on after that. But the showers are great. I recommend getting the cabin with the toilet if you travel. The ones without are very small. They will be bringing breakfast around at 7. A typical European breakfast consisting of meat and cheese. There was a spot to order cereal and so Pamela and a I opted for that option because like I said ...
... found a lovely Austrian restaurant ( most Viennese speak English ) and after a delicious dinner headed to meet the others at the concert. A walk along the canal in the city park. Here we found the focus bronze statue of Strauss. While here I stopped to reply to a txt from you Mat, Ann and Debbie deserted me .... Middle of a park in the dark, strange country no one around and deserted !!!! What a great day and evening despite it being really ...
Vienna Austria's capital is a city of stately buildings, grand palaces and lots of lovely green parks, a great city to just walk around. We spent a leisurely few days taking in the grandeur and of course sampling more amazing food, which our waistlines have not thanked us for! and catching up on a few chores, washing to name just a few.
We took in some history on our second day, visiting the Schloss Schonbrunn Palace, the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Falkensteiner Hotel Am Schottenfeld Vienna
The hotel is located in a side street of the Burggasse in the 7th district, about a 15 minute walk from the Volkstheater underground stop (U3) or a 5 minute walk from the Burggasse-Stadthalle underground stop (U6) (this line does not take you directly to the city centre though).
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for three nights and were very impressed with it. While it looked very nice on the website, we were a bit worried about the location when we booked as we normally like to be very central. But there was no need to be concerned as the location is fine. It's about a 10/15 mins walk to the ring road with a bus stop about 3 minutes walk and a metro about 5/10 minutes away. Vienna is so big that it's impossible to walk everywhere anyway - at some point you will have to use the metro/tram/bus and the service is so frequent that it didn't cause us any inconvenience. The Burggasse street which runs perpendicular to the hotel street, has some lovely bars on it and the large shopping street Mariahilfer Strasse is also nearby.

Funky hotel, good breakfast, but a little out of the way
This hotel is a great funky hotel at a reasonable price. We got out room for 90 euro a night with breakfast. The hotel has a very cool minimalist architecture in the lobby and rooms. The bathrooms have a very cool basin sink and a sliding glass wall for a door. The only downside is the location. It is bit out of the center, but not far from the Westbanhof. It is pretty close to a u-bahn line, so travel to the center via public transport is easy, but we ended up walking a number of times (it isn't that far). The breakfast was very nicely done with lots of cold and warm options. For the price, this was a great hotel.
We found a cheap online special for this hotel, so we were a bit wary about what we were paying for, as it's always a toss-up with these European hotels. But we were blown away when we walked into the lobby. The hotel is amazing! It is really cool, super funky and modern, and our room was sleek, ultra-modern, and clean. The breakfast was excellent. It is the best buffet breakfast you'll get in Europe, it will keep you going for the whole day. It is worth staying here just for the breakfast.
I loved this hotel. It was well located near two subway lines and all kinds of services (good Indian restaurant up the street;) The rooms were small but ultra-modern and comfortable. This was my first visit to Europe and I couldn't have picked a better hotel to get over my jet lag. The breakfast buffet was also very good, probably better than any other place I stayed in the dozen other European countries I visited. The only drawback was the snarky young staff, though they spoke fluent English and even French.
The "Little le Meridien"
Stayed 4 nights at the Falkensteiner. Go the best deal from Thomas Cook and paid only €88 per room! That includes breakfast buffet! For that price you get a lot and I am quite sure that it's the best offer you can get for a 4 star hotel in Vienna.
The Falkensteiner is very modern and seems to imitate the Le Meridien. However the interior is relatively cheap and the room is actually more 3 star than 4 star.
If you get a room for < 100€ per night I would highly recommend to spend some nights in the Falkensteiner. Otherwise the Le Meridien is, of course, the better choice if you're happy to spend > 150€ per night.
The hotel is in a fairly quiet part of the city just inside the Outer Ring Road. It takes about 10 mins to walk to the main shopping street. The hotel has underground parking which cannot be reserved but there are lots of spaces - I think it was 13 euro per night.
The rooms are very modern with quality fittings and furniture and very clean. The bar and breakfast area are also very clean and well looked after.
Breakfast is buffet syle with loads of choices for cold meats/cheeses and cereals and fruit/yoghurts. The hot buffet was well stocked with boiled/scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, etc.
Would definitely recommend the hotel for both business and leisure visits.
