Hotel Beethoven is an elegant, 5-storey, Neo-Renaissance building constructed in 1902. Its location is excellent for arts, music, culture and food lovers -- it is opposite the Theater an der Wien, where Mozart's "The Magic Flute" premiered, and was also a favourite haunt of Ludwig van Beethoven, who lived here briefly while composing his solo opera, "Fidelio".
Karlsplatz, a public square and market, next to the Künstlerhaus arts centre, is less than a 10-minute walk away, as is Wiener Staatsoper, the Vienna State Opera House. It is also a couple of minutes from Naschmarkt, a fruit and vegetable market that has occupied the same location since the 18th century -- although these days, it is "not only the place to shop for food, but also has an antique market each Saturday", says Lonely Planet.
The hotel's owners, the Ludwig family, are keen musical aficionados, and sponsor several cultural institutions in the city. Every weekend (at 6pm either on a Saturday or Sunday), Hotel Beethoven organises an in-house classical concert with a professional pianist, as well as a cellist or vocalist -- guests can watch on the mezzanine level and are served free champagne. There is also free tea and coffee served all day in the Beethoven Lounge.
Each of the 43 rooms is uniquely decorated -- some are in dark, deep colours, and others have bright floral wallpaper -- and face out either on to the quiet street or inner courtyard. Larger family rooms are also available. Many rooms have oil paintings and large prints on the walls, and some also have bath tubs. All include complimentary breakfast and free Wi-Fi.
