Please mention MarksTravelNotes.com when contacting these fine establishments. I have stayed at all these hotels.
Hotel Romischer Kaiser (Annagasse 16, Vienna A-1010) - Location can't be improved - at a few minutes walk from historic Vienna including St Stephans Cathedral and the Hofburg Imperial Palace. Reception staff are excellent and very, very helpful - it's hard to remember the last time I encountered front desk staff this good. Rooms are comfortable, spacious and well decorated in a Baroque style. My only complaint is that the beds are too comfortable!
Hotel Das Tyrol (Mariahilfer Strasse 15, A-1060 Vienna) - We found the Hotel Das Tyrol through the Small Luxury Hotels website - which has given excellent results in the past. The Hotel Das Tyrol was no exception. Very good and helpful front of house, comfy beds and fine brekky alongside an excellent location on shoppers heaven Mariahilfer Straβe make the Hotel Das Tyrol a firm recommendation.
