Where to Stay in Vienna?
As you might expect, Vienna offers some of the most opulent and historic hotels in Europe, with prices to match. However, reasonably priced centrally located accommodation can be found, especially in the numerous pensions throughout the city. These are not necessarily inferior to hotels in quality, in fact some are a whole lot better. In the 1st district, the Innere Stadt (Vienna's old town and commercial center) is where you will find most of the big luxury hotels. Tucked away in the small streets of the Innere Stadt, there are also a large number of charming pensions and hotels. If you are looking for somewhere a bit quieter and somewhat cheaper but still within walking distance of the 1st district and its sights, have a look in the districts beyond the Ringstrasse such as Landstrasse, Wieden, Neubau and Josefstadt. In the summer months (July through September), some of the student dormitories transform themselves into Vienna hotels, helping to meet the city's tourism demands, and these are good, low-cost alternatives.
Vienna Accommodation Options
The Imperial, the Sacher, the ANA Grand Hotel and the Vienna Marriott are well-known five-star hotel options. All these hotels are situated on the Ringstrasse and are popular with celebrities and presidents, offering all the luxurious features you would expect. A favourite with visiting luminaries, this historic hotel not only prides itself on amazing service and exquisite facilities, but also a great location, as it's centrally located and close to such attractions as the Hofburg Palace and the Musikverein.
Vienna Hotel Recommendations?
Some very popular and beautiful hotels near St. Stephan's Cathedral are the Hotel Römischer Kaiser or the K&K Palais Hotel. For a traditonal Austrian option try the Hotel Biedermeier or the classic Pension Lindenhof.
Transport in Vienna
Vienna's airport is located 20 km outside the city centre. It is connected to the city centre by the S-Bahn-line S7, which runs underneath the airport. Trains leave every 30min, taking half an hour to reach Wien-Mitte, near the Ring. There is also a public bus connection from the airport to the city centre. Vienna has an excellent public transport system of trams, busses and subways. Since it's a large town and there's not much parking space available, public transport is the easiest and cheapest way to get around.
