Nice place, beautifully decorated with respect to the older building. Nice smiling people. Good breakfast. Cleanliness impeccable. Highly recommended. Located on the same street as Mozart birthplace. Take the time to explore it

Cute hotel with interesting modern art, quirky feel. Very helpful staff for restaurants. Cobblestone streets outside your door, beautiful and convenient area. Tiny room, but certainly sufficient for 2.

I like this hotel. There is a modern feel and we found the restaurant good for dinner and breakfast. Only complaint is that the room configuration for our family was a bit odd. One room looked essentially like a hospital room. I would stay again though.

We stayed here 3 nights and loved the hotel. Great location and friendly staff. We had an upgrade for €20 a night and stayed in a huge room. They have bikes you can rent and ride along the beautiful river. The downside was we stayed over all saints day and nothing was open! Even the hotel restaurant was closed. We... More

Our stay at the hotel was amazing. The staff is efficient and always willing to help- from tours, restaurant recommendations, directions, transport, etc. The rooms were spacious and always clean. I really liked that they smelled good too, after housekeeping. The little blue rubber ducky souvenirs was such a great touch to the hotel experience. Location is right smack in... More

Nice, clean hotel within a walking distance to most attractions. The room was spacious with a nice shower area. The reception area (check in-out) served as a concierge desk as well, so it was a bit of a long wait for a touristy advice sometime with a varying degree of knowledge. The breakfast on the first day took over an... More

We enjoyed this hotel. The room was spacious and well appointed. The staff was helpful and friendly. They had a tea station on the 1st floor with fresh hot water and fruit that I especially enjoyed.

So convenient and unique and right on the street next to Mozart's birthplace. The owner and staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. Special kudos to the concierge Dietmark for his recommendation for dinner and coffee shop 220!

Our GPS could not get us there. (We had to park, walk to hotel to get directions to the parking garage, then walk back to car, navigate the directions through the old town, then park and walk to the hotel.) But once we got there, we loved it! It was deluxe accommodations in the heart of the city. Easy walking... More
