The Kärntnerhof is a lovely hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and our room was very comfortable and quiet. The location is perfect for exploring Vienna. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it.

Hotel Kärntnerhof was a very good hotel. There was friendly service, good breakfast, and great location. Everything in the city was decorated and ready for Christmas. Everything considered, this was a great hotel.

This hotel is tastefully decorated, peaceful and very clean. I stayed three nights and enjoyed the staff, good wi fi, good breakfast and an all round good hotel. It is located perfectly in the heart of Vienna and from here you easily explore everywhere on foot. I hope I stay here again.

The location of the hotel is ideal for getting around town you can walk or the nearest train station is a short way. Breakfast... More

Stayed here with friends for a mid week break - the staff could not have been more helpful with their local knowledge and help. The rooms were spacious and comfortable ,the lack of a bar on the premises was not an issue as drinks could be sourced form next door . The delightful roof terrace was an added bonus

A very friendly and central hotel with excellent car parking. The room was super, elegant and just right for a very comfortable stay in the heart of Vienna. Breakfast is first class with a super choice. Many thanks especially to Vladimir and Michael! We look forward to returning.

We stayed here during a short visit to Vienna, and loved this elegant 'boutique' hotel! Rooms were a perfectly good size with nice bathroom featuring a great, powerful, shower. Breakfast excellent, cooked as well as traditional European. Friendly and efficient staff for whom nothing was too much. No bar, but there was an excellent bar/restaurant next door. Would definitely return!

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
