Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marmite49 Looking forward to seeing it refurbished
I have been staying at this hotel since 2001 and know the hotel pretty well now. I understand that it is being refurbished in 2014 and from my last visit, this month, I can see that it really needs it.
The bedroom was comfortable and had all the facilities you could need but, there were stains on the bedcovers and valance - not acceptable. The bathroom was clean and had nice toiletries the toilet was separate. We had breakfast included but it is no longer of the same standard that it used to be. There was plenty to choose from including hot food unfortunately on both mornings it was only slightly warm and the plates were cold, not at all pleasant although the staff are.
On the good side we ate in the Pitter Keller on one night and it is to be recommended if you like traditional Austrian food which we do. Also the American Bar in the hotel is a nice relaxing place to have your pre dinner drink or nightcap.It is a bit of a walk into the old town but it is a nice stroll with shop windows to look into and a walk across the river.
I will be returning to this hotel and look forward to seeing the improvements hopefully without losing its charm.

Pretty sure you don't want me to write a review. The room smelled like cigarette smoke, the fire alarm went off when we were asleep, and the breakfast was over priced. Should have commented earlier but only desired to comment after receiving email.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cooper65 Greatplace to Stay and Close to al we needed to see
We were on out second last Stop on our three week trip through eastern Europe and at thus point needed o Place and a Room to relax and rest.
The room upgrade was great and the Staff in the hotel was great and willing to help as needed without hesitation. It was a great place to stay and would do it again and the restaurant in the Basement was unbelievable Great Food.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone and a great place to spend a weekend if you were in that part of the world.
