... Connelly book for one of Dean Koontz' Bad Thomas series. FYI: I can report after the fact that both are great books. Hey, while there's English language books on offer and I can make the time to read them, don't expect me to hold back.
That was it for Austria. I'm sure there will people who ask "so, what did you think of Vienna?" and if I'm entirely honest I don't really know how I'll answer them. "It was conveniently on my route," I suppose I could say. "and a fine place to ...
... that occasionally interrupted their otherwise meaningful silence. When I got up to go walk around, the two slowly leaned toward each other and pressed their foreheads together. Erin wished I'd hurry back. Awkward!
They got off the train before we did. You better believe we spent the remainder of our journey imagining their story. That is, we played with this idea until I suggested the man might have some terminal illness. That ruined the game. ...
I am so excited, today we docked early in Vienna and we are about to adventure out to this charming city! It was beautiful, we saw some very old churches and buildings and Glenn had his weinersnitchel which is a veal cutlet cut very thin, pounded so thin it overflows a dinner plate. Needless to say I didn't partake in the delicacy. I did however have some salad with a delicious dressing and come to find out it ...
... of the trip, was that it was raining while we were there. But we enjoyed ourselves, huddling around the graves of the likes of Beethoven, Mozart, the Strauss family, Gluck, Schubert, Brahms, Schoenberg, and so many others. It was interesting to see the difference in tombstones in Europe for these important figures compared to the grave sites of the average American. Also, the identification, like a composer having a piece of sheet music on their ...
... hunger took over and we left for dinner at the Maredo Steak House across the street. It was the same chain as in Munich that we used to eat at with the kids. We had filet with salad and frites and it was yummy.. It was raining by the time we left so we walked into town a bit and took the U3 to Volksgarten and then the 48a bus to our street and now are finishing our red wine and relaxing before bed ...

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.
