The staff here were wonderful. They were welcoming and helpful. The kind valet took our cases up and showed us around the room. Location is great. Just outside a Metro, tram runs just outside. Room quality I would have to say not quite 5 star. But for the price it was ok. We would certainly visit again when we are...

We stayed here from Monday to Friday on a bed and breakfast basis.We were given a very good welcome and shown to a quiet room overlooking the side street. The breakfast was excellent, a good choice between hot and cold with lots of little extras. We felt the restaurant was a little expensive so ate in nearby local restaurants of...

Perfectly placed for the fantastic Christmas markets, very friendly and helpful staff, amazing breakfast with a huge variety of foods, rooms fantastic, we had balcony rooms which was nice (no. 205) the only comment I would make is that the rooms are very warm and we had no control over the temperature. Would highly recommend and would stay again- it...

On arriving the Hotel façade is beautiful also the lobby and lounges, but a shame the rooms let this hotel down badly. We had two interconnecting rooms as we love space. Yes the rooms were huge but lacking in warmth and ambience. Bare walls, not one picture on the walls, no cushions, no bedspreads, two twin beds pushed together with...

We stayed for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff were friendly and arranged a taxi to/from the airport for us. Although not right in the centre of Vienna it was perfect for us as it was out of the hustle and bustle (so quiet at night for sleeping) but only a couple of minutes walk into the...

Just returned from a trip to Vienna and I'm so pleased I choose the Hotel de France. The hotel is perfect for the Christmas market - 5 minutes walk and less than 10 minutes to the main shopping streets. The hotel reception and bar area are stunning with beautiful chandeliers it's just so well laid out it looks so luxurious...

You'll be wowed by the marble floored reception and the sitting rooms adjacent to reception and breakfast bar. However when you get to the rooms, while spacious they do not live up to the reception. Mine was a corner plot on the 5th floor believe me it was spotless, it was comfortable and above all it was quiet but it...

Dear Hisham K, thank you so much for taking your time to post your personal feedback! We are sorry to hear that the hotel and the services offered only partly met your expectations.

We have chosen the hotel based on reviews (people said that they served a salmon and sparkling vine for breakfast). I am disappointed because our room is shabby and already at 7:45 there are a lot of people in breakfast room and there is NO salmon!!! There is a strange smell in the room which has a view onto the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighbourhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighbourhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
