Another bright, sunny but freezing day in Wien brought the usual experience of just pottering around this beautiful city with regular stops for hot-chocolate and cake. On this occasion, it was strudel....only myself and my lovely hubby had decided to order one apple and one sour cherry and go halves to get a taste of both! Only the hubby got …
After a whirlwind couple of days at home it was time for bag packing and passport hunting again as we headed off for the next adventure in Vienna. Laughingly calling this work we were heading over to attend the album launch party of a band we met over breakfast in Milton Keynes....sounds glamorous hey! The band produce the heavy kind of rock which …
I managed to arrive in Vienna and meet Natalie at our hotel by noon. Of course I had to be on the 6:39am train to make that happen, and Natalie had her doubts. But I managed to make it without any hullaballoo. The trip felt long—too tired to sleep or read, but it was nice to just sit and reflect a bit on the overwhelmingly interesting week I …
... but there was a beautiful view of the lake and a seriously well set up campsite (if they had facilities like this in Australia I'd seriously camp all the time). Another scenic drive later (so, so stunning) we found ourselves in Budapest. What a cool city! I spent the day hanging out with some friends from home, hooning around Margaret island on a four wheel bike, traipsing through jaw dropping cathedrals and being spontaneously serenaded by an orchestra in ...
... There is a concentration camp about 30 mins away where 300,000 Jews and gypsies were killed, I would have liked the opportunity to share this educational experience with Beau. We learned the story of Nicholas Winton, a Linz resident who saved more than 900 children by transporting them to England for adoption. Students from Austria have started a petition for a Nobble Peace prize nomination. He is 102 years old and the prize can only be awarded to living ...

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Belvedere Vienna
I stayed here over Christmas in 2005 and really enjoyed my stay at the hotel. The front desk staff were very helpful, rooms very modern and spacious and great facilities (eg. spa, sauna, heated pool etc). It's a 1 min walk from the Belvadere palace and only 15 min walk into the city centre.
Great value for money and location if you don't mind the short walk into the middle of the city.
Great location - basic but comfortable
Excellent hotel. Basic but clean and comfortable with good sized bedrooms (high ceilings). Staff are helpful and friendly.
It is in a very good location within about 10 or 15 minutes walk from the city centre. There is a tram stop within 2 or 3 minutes walk and the train connection to the airport a similar distance away.
I highly recommend buying a tram pass - we got 72 hour passes and it was worth every penny of the 12 Euros they cost. They can be bought from the small newsagent (tabak) next to the tram stop near the hotel. It is an excellent way to sight see.
Clean, efficient, friendly,quiet
This hotel is a winner! The staff are friendly for starters. The rooms are big, power showers and nice toiletries. Beds big and comfortable. Only a short stroll to the Belvedere Palace and the city centre is not too far. Good cellar bar called Salm Brau 2 minutes walk. I stayed for 3 nights and wished it was longer. Rennweg station is very near too from where you can get a train direct to the airport.
Nice and quiet
My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days and we both loved it. It is in the diplomatic quarter near the historic Belvedere. The room was clean and very comfortable. It was also very quiet which made me very happy! The staff were fantastic. Each evening we would have a drink in the bar and our waiter was always lovely. Breakfast was pretty standard and we had no complaints.
Excellent hotel, great value for money, great choice for breakfast. Very good leisure facilities( even though the choice of equipment is limited). 10 minute walk to city centre. 3 minute walk to tram and train service which has connections to the Airport. Would recommend this hotel to my friends.
My wife and I stayed in this hotel for two nights at the start of our trip to Austria and one night at the end. What is important for us is the size and quality of the room. We were very happy with the rooms that we received on both occasions, as they were large and well maintained. The breakfast was the normal buffet arrangement and the range was good.
The hotel was also close to the Rennweg station on the line from the airport.
A small, but important touch, was the warm welcome from the receptionist when we booked in for the second time. If we return to Vienna we would use this hotel again.
A wonderful hotel!
This hotel is really wonderful! It's an easy 15-minute walk to the center of Vienna and close to public transportation, too. The best thing about it, for us, was the room -- it was GIGANTIC and beautifully appointed. Plus, there was a wonderful breakfast buffet. There's no indoor pool, which was a bummer, but there was a free healthclub, which was great. We absolutely loved this hotel.
Good hotel, choose room carefully!
We enjoyed a nice stay at the Nh Belvedere in October 2004, our first Vienna trip. The Nh was extremely conveniently located one block from the underground trains and right next to a tram stop. Staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful and our room was clean and comfortable. My one piece of advice would be to insist on a room off the street since aforementioned tram is thisclose (see pic) and quite loud. Especially since the heat was particularly difficult to control and we needed to open windows to be able to breathe, sleeping was difficult. But we would certainly return armed with this knowledge. Great restaurant a 1/2 block away, Salm Brau, with outstanding Austrian food and beer in an old cellar setting.
Stayed in this hotel in Dec 02 & Dec 04. Brilliant hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms very well equipped(they supplied hairbrushes) and very extremely clean. Dont know what the other review was referring to about being far from the city centre...out the door turn left and 10 mins walk had you in the centre and the main shopping area. Trams also ran outside hotel door. Will definetly stay here again. Price excellent and buffet breakfast equally as good. Overall Vienna a beautiful city especially at christmas.
Good Hotel, But A Distance From City Center
My family booked 3 rooms at this hotel earlier this month. The large, high-ceilinged rooms were comfortable and had clean, well-appointed bathrooms. The breakfast buffet was very good. The hotel is located in an area of some embassy and university buildings and is a good distance from the city center. The closest train station is three blocks away.
