"Among the top design hotels in the city", according to Lonely Planet, Small Luxury Hotel Das Tyrol hides a bounty of treasures behind an unassuming entrance. It is set just off the busy Mariahilferstrasse, but inside the boutique hotel feels serene. The owner still lives on site, and her personal style is evident throughout -- original modern art adorns the walls and sculptures crop up everywhere.
This all makes for a home-like hideaway, but the hotel's real highlight is its location. Set right in the center of Vienna on the corner of the MuseumsQuartier, it's the perfect base for sightseeing and shopping. There are almost too many museums here to choose between, but be sure to make time for the Kunsthistorisches Museum, housing one of the world’s best art collections, and Schiele's artwork at the Leopold Museum. The open-air Naschmarkt (7am-6:30pm, Monday-Saturday), five minutes' walk away, is also worth a visit (go early, it gets busy). The hotel’s U-Bahn, Museumsquartier is a 2-minute walk.
The other bonus is the hotel's luxurious private spa on the ground floor, where you'll find a tropical fish tanks under a 'starlit' sky alongside a steam room, sauna and light-therapy shower. Guests can book it for an hour at a time and it's free to use the steam room and sauna. The hotel also serves a decent buffet breakfast (6:30-10am) with cold cuts, yogurt, Danish pastries and prosecco on ice; eggs and omelettes are cooked to order.
Rooms are sunny and welcoming, but can differ quite a bit in shape (it's an old building), and the most basic are quite small. However, all have plenty of closet space and Nespresso coffee machines, air conditioning and shaver sockets for US plugs in the bathrooms. Upgrade to a Studio for more space -- some have a balcony overlooking the street. The nightly turndown service brings chocolates, and guests can request a smoking or non-smoking room.
