Historical Traveler Reviews Pertschy Palais Hotel Vienna
Great location, very good room!
I decided to book at Pension Pertschy based on reviews from the TripAdvisor website, and I was not disappointed! The location was central, on a reasonably quiet street (although lots of horse-drawn carriages during the day means lots of street sweepers at night!). We requested an outside room, which was a little more costly, but it was also more spacious. The only complaints were that the shower stall in the bathroom was a bit cramped and the soap provided was inadequate (but we had bars of soap from other hotels to fill in this gap). On the whole, though, the level of service was high and I would return to Pension Pertschy on a future visit.
Tremendous Location, Excellent Hotel
The location is terrific, a couple hundred yards from the museums in 1 direction and St. Stevens square in the other. The room was large and comfortable, bath was fine, and the whole place was spotless. Breakfast had the best variety of the 3 places we stayed over the course of the trip. If I ever make it back to Vienna I will be staying here.
Perfect base for a trip to Vienna
If you are planning to visit Vienna, consider staying at Pension Pertschy. Located in Hapsburgergasse, in the heart of the city, this small family-run hotel, is within two minutes walking distance of the Hofburg, the Lipizzaner Museum and the Graben. The Staatsoper, St Stephan's Cathedral and the recently re-opened Albertina Museum are about 5 minutes on foot. Aside from its superb location, Pension Pertschy offers a friendly, personal welcome and amazing value for money. The hotel rooms are on three floors of a former Hapsburg palace, centred around a courtyard and accessed by outdoor balconies running around the building at each level. A few rooms, including my own, face out to the street. On hot summer evenings, the sounds of the open-air cafes, buskers playing Mozart, church clocks chiming the hour and the clip-clop of fiakker horses wafts through open windows - but the sounds are part of the wonderful ambience of Vienna -o unruly drunks, no loutish behaviour or heavy traffic noise. The ensuite rooms are very comfortable and well-appointed, with excellent shower, mini-bar, hairdryer and TV. Decor is tasteful and well-maintained. A star feature of the Pertschy would have to be the buffet breakfasts, which feature fresh fruits, yogurt, stewed plums, cereals and muesli, cheeses and cold meats, a delicious assortment of bread and rolls and more, including a choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. The staff are very friendly and courteous, and will help you arrange sightseeing tours, concerts etc, as well as booking taxis and airport shuttles. I discovered the Pertschy quite by accident, over the Internet, and couldn't have been happier with my discovery. If you want to immerse yourself in the real Vienna, this is the place to stay - much more character and charm than many of the large international hotels. Even if I had a larger budget, I would still opt for the Pertschy. The only place that might lure me away for just a night or two, if I could afford it, might be the Sacher! Criticisms? I don't really have any but if there is anything lacking at all, it might be tea and coffee making facilities in the otherwise well-fitted rooms. But then, you have an endless choice of cafes right on the doorstep, so it's not really a problem. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Pertschy as the ideal place to stay in Vienna.
Pertschy - pretty nice!
We stayed 5 nights. The small double room (112 Euro/night), was well laid out with a dressing area. The staff were quite helpful, the breakfast generous and the room was very clean. However, I would avoid booking on the courtyard again as all noise bounces directly into the room (we had our window open due to unusually warm May weather). We found ourselves waking at 6am daily as guests prepared for check-out, speaking loudly & slamming doors along the corridors and in the courtyard. Wished it was quieter.
My favorite place to stay in Vienna
I have stayed in this hotel already three times, in October, November and December last year. I simply loved it. Rooms are large and clean. The friendly reception, good buffet breakfast, free internet access in the common area and the superb location have much more value than the room rates you pay. Comparing it to the top hotels in Vienna, you will just save money by paying only a forth of what other 5 star hotels will charge you. The only downside is (which is no downside in my opinion) that the furniture is somewhat kitsch, but who cares? Highly recommended!
We stayed at the Pension Pertschy in mid-January, and found it to be a good choice, on the whole. The place has a air of being well-managed, the breakfast buffet was good, the room was very large and the bed was comfortable. On the down side, the decor was is good shape, but kind of kitsch. The other big shock was that we were there during a terrible blizzard, and the elevator to our room was not heated. You took it to a walkway around an indoor courtyard, and didn't get to a heated space until you reached the hallway door outside your room. This meant that you had to go outdoors and down in a cold lift to go to breakfast, etc. While this saunter through the elements is probably lovely in the summer, it was not to great in a blizzard. But the location is so fabulous--on a short street running between the Graben and the Hofburg Palace--that it made up for everything. We'd stay there again.
Great Location--Great Service--Large Rooms
A Fantastic Place to Stay
I really loved staying at Pension Pertschy and will do so again. The staff are more than helpful and the atmosphere is lovely. It is also in the heart of Vienna making it very convenient too.
A great place to stay
Pension Pertschy is ideally situated for shopping or visiting the many galleries. Desk staff very helpful and have passable english. Breakfast is good. I would advise against a room directly on the courtyard as the walkways are rattley and it could be noisy with people walking past during the evening. They had internet access in an old piano free of charge which is located in the foyer

... Praterdome - a club in an amusement park. Perhaps a less classy establishment, but with 3 dancefloors we were there until the early hours of the morning. We did go sightseeing, to the royal building and the surrounding Christmas markets but compared to the other places we had seen, Vienna was somewhat subpar. The hostel was worth noting though, definitely the most friendly atmosphere and best facilities we had come across. If ...
Today is the first day of the International Meeting on Emerging Diseases in Vienna, Austria. We flew in to the city in the morning and had time for a fantastic lunch at Meieri. This is the casual sister restaurant of Austria's most famous restaurant Steirech which we visited 2 years ago. They had seasonal dishes which were delicious, goose (kinda tastes like turkey) and bread dumplings filled with sweet plums.
The start of the conference was very ...
Last night we had the opportunity to go out to a Heuriger. Heurigers are family owned taverns that, by law, must serve wines that are grown in their own vineyards and are younger than two years. They are a Viennese tradition and most are located north of the city in the Vienna Woods (the hills that form the first foothills of the Alps.) We had a wonderful night of wine drinking, singing, and listening to local folk musicians.

I have been in Austria for a week now and I have not stopped!!
Instead of doing an entry each day, I'll write as and when I can and give a brief synopsis of the week's main events! As this has been quite an eventful week...it will be quite long!
So let's start with Monday 4th November:
First day rehearsing with the set and costumes - very exciting!
We were told that the author of the play, Philip Dart, and ...
... our legs in the space between us. The train ride was 6 hours but because it was only 200 kms it stopped for 3 or so and were interrupted by constant noises. When it stopped the air flow turned off and you could smell the toilet down the hall, and Europeans don't **** roses. It was not easy to sleep. In hindsight it would have been better to get a day train and pay for another night of accommodation it would have been marginally more expensive. Once we got into Vienna it was great. ...
