|Subject: Re: Vienna Hotel (with charm)|
I have been talking with my friends in Vienna, and they have
told me that one of the places TO BE now is the Spittelberg
area. It is located behing the Rathaus and the new Museum
Quartier. Its Christmas market has always been different and
Also, as it is located near the new museums
http://www.mqw.at/news.en.html , it will give you an insight
into something different to the typical austrian kitsch
(nothing against it, but I think that Vienna is way
underrated regarding its style, and the gold and plush red
velvet seem to take over :) ).
An hotel that has been recommended to me is the Pension Altstadt http://www.altstadt.at/ , and after seeing the pictures on their website, I fully understand why. It is well located, and you can walk from there into the City. Although the Koenig von Ungarn has always been one of my favourites. I love that location in the old town ... The style is really different between the two places, so it would be up to you.
Although if you are looking for design ... Das Triest is in the same area as the Kaiserhof http://www.dastriest.at/ ... maybe a bit too cold?
