Historical Traveler Reviews Small Luxury Hotel Das Tyrol Vienna
The Best Little Hotel in Europe
Great rooms with real A/C, roomy spotlessly clean bathrooms, cable TV with free English movie channels, a lift to take you up to your room, and a delicious breakfast. Staff were also very friendly. Located just outside of the Ringstrasse, but close enough to walk to everything you want to see. I think it ranks as one of the best little hotels I've stayed at in Europe.
Very good for the price
This is a lovely hotel that offers excellent service for the price. Location can't be beat. We had one of the balcony rooms (there are only four) and if you can get one it is WELL worth the extra expense. Very small staff so don't expect a porter, etc. Breakfast is excellent and, although small, the staff is very attentive and responsive. Overall an excellent value, a great location and very good service. We were very satisfied.
Nice small hotel, but no luxury
Vienna: Das Tyrol
June 18, 2006
Stayed at Das Tyrol, part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, at the end of May. Having stayed at several fabulous hotels in this chain, I was disappointed with Das Tyrol. There is one person on duty at the front desk, so when we checked in, we had to bring our own bags up to our rooms, taking turns in the teeny elevator. This front desk person seems to be responsible for just about everything, except housekeeping, although he was the one who left the front area to deliver the robes I requested. They were very nice there. The rooms were just fine--nicely furnished and clean. The buffet breakfast, which was included in our room rate, was very good. There is nothing wrong with this hotel, it is just not a luxury hotel as indicated, in my mind.
Great stay in Tyrol
I just left the hotel after a three day stay in Vienna. I was so impressed with the service. Everyone was so nice. I lost my luggage for two days to the cesspool called CDG in Paris. I arrived in Vienna in flip flops and sweats and had no clothes. It was with thier assistance I was able to get new clothes, changed and find a place to buy toiletries and even ibuprofen on a day when most pharmacies were closed.
The room was small, but all I ever needed. The showers were hot and had a high pressure. The breakfast buffet was of a high standard and the service was excellent. The prices of the minibar were reasonable and because of the lost luggage I had to make multiple phone calls to air france, and my final bill was under 20 euros for up to 25 calls and a raid on the snacks one night.
I loved the location. I was on Maria hilfer street where anything to eat or shop was near. It was walking distance to the ring and I had many interesting walks less than 30 min from my room. The Stephensdom was a 10 min walk.
I would definately stay again thanks to the staff.
Loved the Das Tyrol
We have just returned from the Das Tyrol. It was everything and more one could hope for from a small luxury hotel. Perfect location, friendly and helpful staff. I would diffently return if ever in Vienna again.
Stayed here recently for two nights on a weekend break. Was considering staying at Le Meridien and Hotel Sacher but put off by exorbitant prices (plus breakfast excluded at Le Meridien). Das Tyrol was a very good compromise on a more discreet, smaller and intimate scale. Very nicely furnished, clean, cosy and comfortable hotel. Had a single room (with two single beds pushed together), nice sparkling white bathroom with power shower, instant hot water and heated towel rack. Nice turndown touch of Suchard chocolates on pillow. Buffet breakfast spread to suit every palate (particularly variety of jams, style of cooked eggs and beverages - and for the bon viveurs free flow prosecco!). The hotel has a sauna and steambath facility - great for a winddown after a day of sightseeing in minus degree centigrade weather - but unfortunately did not have time to use it. Location of hotel excellent - 2 mins from nearest metro (Museumsquartier) and directly opposite the Leopold, MUMOK and Kunstorisches museums, 4 mins from nearest tram strop at the Ring.
Only criticism is that the hotel desk is staffed by one person at any time so it can be difficult if you are having to check out in a hurry and the deskman is taken up with another guest (or a queue of them as I experienced). The deskmen were pleasant enough but I have experienced warmer and more efficient service from lesser starred hotels.
That said I would stay here again and would definitely recommend this hotel to other TripAdvisor users.
Das Tyrol - modern with warmth
I stayed ten days at this very fine, comfortable hotel. My room was a good-sized junior suite facing the busy shopping street. With the windows shut there was little noise in the day and at night none. The hotel is very near the new museum quartier and short walking distance to the opera house. The staff is wonderful and the breakfast is superb. But what's unique about this hotel is its collection of modern art in the foyer, the breakfast room and on all the floors. It's worth a visit just for that. I will definitely stay there again.
Had an Enjoyable Stay
Just returned from a 3 night stay at Das Tyrol. The hotel is well-located on one of the city's main shopping street and less than a five minute walk to the Museum Quartier. I stayed at Room 35, which was a more than decent-sized room for single occupancy. The room, including the bathroom, appears to have been recently renovated. The buffet breakfast was ample (coffee was good!) and the friendly and cheerful breafast staff made up for it. They now have a free internet corner for those wishing access to the internet. As this is a small hotel, the lobby and elevator are proportionately small. The only issue I have was that during my stay, the building adjacent to it was being renovated - so one could hear the construction work start at 7 am! Otherwise, had a generally pleasant stay at this hotel.
Good five-star value
If you can't stay right in the heart of things or don't want to spend the money but crave the five-star extras, this is a good option. Located about 10 minutes away from everything off of a main street, this tiny hotel is clean, quiet, elegant and a good value at about $200/night. Rooms are definitely small but well appointed, clean and filled with all the usual perks, like robes, slippers, mini-bar, TV, etc. Breakfast was great. No bar or restaurant. Note that this hotel is five minutes from the city's best museums.
Small but nice
I stayed at this hotel last June. It is the only "Small Luxury Hotel" in Vienna, and small are most of the guest rooms, some even tiny. They are, however, well appointed with amenities like room safe, bathrobe, slippers and free internet hook-up. Access to the guest floors is by a very old and slow elevator or the stairs. No restaurant, just a breakfast room. The breakfast buffet was good.
Personal Services are limited. Staff friendly and helpful though. The hotel seems to have some regular guests but my impression was that it could be doing better with the help of a professional manager.

Our time in Vienna has come to an end for now and we have had to move on to Budapest. Vienna has been a truly lovely city and for the last couple of days the weather has been extremely kind to us with temps in the mid 20s.
While in Vienna we stayed in a nice small hotel across from the Opera, so naturally we had to do a tour of the Opera House while the stage hands were setting up for ...

Afterwards I decided to have a look at the famous library room of the Austrian National library. Magnificient. They had a special exhibition on angels and some beautiful books on display. I was also allowed to take pictures without flash.
My last point on the agenda was a ballet hommage in the Opera house. The Opera house is so beautiful. So many statues ...

We had time to walk around old-town Vienna before dinner at Walter Bauer restaurant, a 1 Michelin star. Vienna is really beautiful at night with its statues and historic buildings lit up. It was Halloween as well. We noticed some adults and teenagers were dressed up but not many children. The idea of Halloween as well as Valentines day have been imported here but it was clear it has not really taken off like at ...

If anyone has any recommendations I'm all ears! My ideal would be somewhere mellow and outdoorsy. More soon! Love, ...
