... we sight-see.
And there’s plenty to see! In the Upper Belvedere palace there are gallery upon gallery of modern art, medieval art and impressionist art, all laid out in wonderfully baroque rooms, most impressive of which is the incredible marble hall which lies at the centre of the palace. After an hour or so drinking it all in, we wrap ourselves up again and brave the bitter air to walk down through the formal gardens to the Lower Belvedere palace ...
... in hostels are supposed to be covered with the "second sheet" which is actually more like a sleeping bag. We explained that a comforter with a print on it is not a duvet in Canada... Either way it was pretty funny. They probably believed us when we said we had butlers.... Haha. That night we headed for dinner at an authentic Austrian pub and most people had schnitzel, dumplings, and the typical Austrian fare. Michelle went for the lasagna and I had a Caprese salad and a side order ...
... of locks on the bridge! We really liked the trick water fountains at Hellbrunn Palace at Salzburg, such ingenuity and mischievous designs, and all because the Archbishop at the time had a good sense of humour (and lots of money)!
It was our intention to go to the Neuschwanstein fairy tale castle near Fussen (in Germany, just), but on the day it was absolutely pouring rain (have to walk a fair way), the mountains were all in heavy ...
... internet connection at the hotel. The weather was much cooler today which made for a pleasant walk in Stadtpark before it was time to head for the airport.
We arrived at the airport in plenty of time and had quite a wait which was added to by sitting on the Tarmac for 2 1/2 hours waiting for a storm to clear. It was a little reminiscent of our start to the holiday ...
... we said that we'd be fine doing that and we begin pulling out our money to pay, but she led us straight to the theater and told us to go sit down. We didn't pay anything! She was super nice and let us sit on the steps and watch The Great Gatsby, in a nice movie theater, for free! To top off the great day, we went to McDonald's :)
Tomorrow's a national holiday so we don't have class. I can't wait to sleep in. Goodnight!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Stefanie Vienna
On arrival at the Stephanie my wife and I were greeted with a WOW-factor of 11, on a scale of 1 - 10, as we entered through two sets of automatic double-doors. I had the impression I had done my maths wrong as this hotel seems too exclusive for the price quoted. The room was like a junior suite and the cleanliness was almost beyond belief. The only downside was the outlook from our windows - what could be taken as council flats, but the lights on the tower block offices at night made up for that. The breakfast was the finest we have ever had and was in a most charming dining room with such attentive staff. Being situated across the Kanal means the hotel is just outside the city centre but the visitor benefits from the 'not city centre' prices yet is only 10 minute walk from Shwedenplatz or 15 from Stephansplatz right in the centre.
Ich möchte zuerst einmal sagen, dass Wien einer der schönsten und freundlichsten Städte ist, die ich bisher besucht habe. Diese Meinung hat sich durch unseren 3-tägigen Aufenthalt im Hotel Stefanie erhärtet. Ich habe dort wie selten zuvor freundliches und effizientes Personal kennen gelernt, das selbst mit dem Personal in einigen Luxushotels dieser Welt leicht mithalten kann. Wir hatten ein dreijähriges Kind mit dabei. Für meine Frau und mich war die Lage ideal. Zur U-Bahnstation und zur Straßenbahn musste man nur 5 Minuten laufen, trotzdem war es in und um das Hotel herum sehr ruhig. Ich kann hier endlos lange über die vielen positiven Attribute des Hotels berichten, aber zwei Sachen haben herausgestochen. Das sehr üppige (und im Preis enthaltene) Frühstück (mit einer Auswahl an Obst, Kuchen, Wurst, Käse und einem Glas Sekt) und die Größe des Badezimmers. Nicht wie sonst üblich in Europa findet man im Stefanie ein voll ausgerüstetes, helles, sauberes und vor allem geräumiges Badezimmer vor. Wien wird mit Sicherheit wieder zu unseren Urlaubszielen gehören und wir würden in keinem anderen Hotel als dem Stefanie übernachten wollen.
Fast makellos. Die Hotel hat viel Stil und einen überragenden Service. Das Frühstück war sehr anständig und das Personal sehr hilfsbereit. Was mich gestört hat war nur, dass man über die Brücke gehen musste, um in die Stadt zu kommen. Das hat aber auch nur gerade mal 3 Minuten gebraucht und man kann es eigentlich nicht wirklich als Makel deklarieren, oder?!
I would like to start by saying that Vienna is one of the most beautiful & friendly cities that I have visited across all continents. This pleasure was compounded by our 3 night stay at the Stefanie which had some of the friendliest and most efficient staff I have come across even in comparison with some well known luxury hotels.
Good location but smokey and dated rooms
The price and location are right, but the rooms are dated and small. I found bugs in my shoes in the morning and it was really smokey. BUT, we could walk everywhere we wanted to go from the hotel and I felt completely safe staying there as a woman by myself.
We booked as part of a flight plus hotel package, so I can't comment on the price of the hotel alone. The package was remarkable value for money and the hotel was almost faultless.
Virtually faultless. This hotel is full of class with superior service. Breakfast was very decent and staff very helpful. The only fault is that you have to cross the bridge to the city...seen as that takes 3 minutes it could hardly be an inconvenience!?!
I booked this hotel on Orbitz and got the same rate they offer on the Best Western site, about 79 euros a night. At that price, this is a great hotel. I booked a single, so the room was small, but modern and pretty well-equipped. The older rooms might have more "character." Public areas are beautiful and tasteful. The location is very convenient as previous reviews have noted. The staff were very professional and courteous.
Good hotel, rooms a little bit dated
Just returned from a 4-day stay in Vienna, Hotel Stefanie.
Very good location, near to Schwedenplatz with easy access to underground etc.
Rooms are clean, but they look al little bit dated. The same for the bathroom (equipped with hair dryer, kleenex, ..) which hopefully will be renewed shortly.
Breakfast is outstanding, diner was less good but vienna counts quite a lot of restaurants, so no problem.
Staff was helpfull, not too friendly.
Just returned from a three-night stay at the Hotel Stefanie in Vienna. This is a well-maintained hotel, just a short walk across the Danube Canal from the Schwedenplatz subway and inner-ring tram stop. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff thoroughly professional. A very good breakfast is served in a beautiful, large dining room. Our guest room was attractive with lots of dark wood, although rather small in area and with a very small bathroom. Although we had reserved two single beds -- you can book online through Best Western -- this turned out to be one double bed with two single mattresses. (We had to drag one of the mattresses to the floor every night, so as not to sleep on top of each other.) Perhaps they had overbooked the rooms with twin beds and just didn't want to admit it. To sum up, this would be a nice hotel for a couple used to sleeping in the same bed; however, two singles looking for more space might want to look elsewhere.
