A posh hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 13, 2009

As I have my own place in Vienna, I haven't spent a night here. My friends and I go for a quiet ladies' drink in their courtyard after having a great dinner at Da Capo which is very famous among locals. (Da Capo is a few steps away from the hotel). If we want to feel good, we go and have a drink at the Koenig von Ungarn. The hotel looks very nice inside and the lobby/courtyard looks sophisticated. We noticed that the guests who come and leave the hotel are prim and proper, look elegant and very pleasant.

Unique Quality: Not one bedroom at the "Koenig von Ungarn" looks the same as the other, but they all have one thing in common: they are very comfortable, with modern bathroom, air-condition, digital safe, minibar and satellite TV. Their brochure further says "Since 1746, we have the honour of lodging royal guests, artists and celebrities. The postcards and dedications are unique documenations from their lives and the past of these personages." Their restaurant is located in the same building in which W.A. Mozart lived and composed the "Marriage of Figaro".

Directions: It is in the heart of the old city, a few steps from underground U1/U3, walking distance to the Opera House, Stephen's Cathedral and if you like walking, to almost all nice places in the first district of Vienna.

Not quite perfect

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

I had high hopes of the Hotel Konig von Ungarn - it had come very highly recommended, both by personal friends and a Viennaophile here on VT. I have to say, it didn't quite live up to those expectations. The location is excellent, just around the corner from the Stephansdom and in very easy reach of so many of Vienna's sights - Mozart's Figarohaus is right above the restaurant - we watched the the first of the stream of tour buses that roll by each day as we ate breakfast! Once the tour buses have gone, the street is quiet enough though and we certainly slept well in our very comfortable beds.
The room was a bit dreary however, old-fashioned was the word that came to mind. It was spacious enough, with plenty of cupboard space and a good sized bathroom. A little plate of handmade chocolates - always different - was a nice touch each day.
Breakfast was fine - served with smiling efficiency, plenty of choice from the usual European mix of cold cuts, cheese, breads, cereals, etc and there was the offer of eggs cooked to order each day. Dinner was better - we came back very late one evening, the restaurant was empty but we were made very welcome and served a delicious meal despite the lateness of the hour.
The standard of service from the front deskwas not so good. Negotiating the foyer in the morning was always tricky - there seemed to be some part of it roped off as the tiles were washed whenever we came downstairs. Finding someone to serve a cup of tea in the mirrored red and cream inner atrium was not always easy. The biggest blot on the copybook came when we were waiting in the atrium to be collected for a tour we'd booked at the front desk the previous day ... no-one came... and no-one came... and we knew the tour was leaving soon from right across town. OOPS! The tour had not been booked! The stops were pulled out, a taxi summoned and we made it but we were not too impressed - and we had to pay for the taxi and get the money back from the desk clerk, who wasn't on duty for the next two days!

Unique Quality: So ... would I recommend the hotel? Not without reservations. The pluses and minuses are about equal, with the location being the very best point.

Directions: Very close to the Stefasndom

SMALL BUT PERFECTLY FORMED!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 16, 2005

The KVU claims to be Vienna's oldest hotel...but worry not, that's 'old' as in ancient and dignified rather than crumbly and careworn! The building is some 300 years old and its enjoyed life as an hostelry since 1815. With only 33 rooms and no sign of a swimming pool, health club or whizzo internet suite, it is - as they say - small but perfectly formed. At a price considerably less than the more opulent Imperial or Sacher, the KVU provides a more personal feel for those who appreciate it. For example, when I was unable to identify a piece of music I heard playing on my radio at 11.40pm, the front desk duly tuned in, identified the station and telephoned them for the details of the artist and track they's been playing...and, by jove, I now have the Herbert Gronemeyer CD to prove it!

The restaurant has an excellent reputation and the bar in the atrium serves coffees, snacks and non-alcoholic cocktails along with more alcoholic attractions. Buffet breakfasts are splendid...and you know, you really should 'go continental' with delicious meats, breads cheeses and gugelhupf (a suitable cake for brekky!) rather than going for the old bacon/ham and eggs!

We had a different splendid family apartment for each of our two trips to the KVU. Super bathroom, lovely bedrooms - though it was one of our children who got the canopied single bed! I was almost tempted to give up the missus and the double! Handmade choclates magically appeared in our room each evening too.

One thing you can't beat is the hotel's location. A stone's throw from St Stephen's cathedral, two minutes stroll (literally) from a major underground station, adjacent to Vienna's swishest shopping streets and yet it still boasts a pretty quiet location. I wouldn't have gone back if it wasn't a lovely place to stay! Worth treating yourself and it's not featured in brochures yet!

Unique Quality: Traditional style and elegance - small but delightful - almost impossible to get lost,(just scour the skyline for the cathedral spire and head towards it! ) - unbeatable location!

Directions: The centre of the centre!

Vienna Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 25, 2005

Pros: Good location in city center; recently updated marble bathroom with 2 sinks

Cons: Room location is important--if you get a room on the street side it can be noisy as the horsedrawn tourist carriages enter the city on this route early every morning; courtyard was very quiet; one member of the front desk staff was consistently rude

Not sure: Period furniture may not appeal to everyone (see pic)

Terrific Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 30, 2005

You couldn't ask for a better location. Right on the Pedestrian Zone and in the center of town. The hotel was very nice and done in the old style. Our room was very large but not really to fancy. The air either didn't work or was shut off early but we didn't need it. The staff was friendly and very professional. There was a very nice atrium in the center of the hotel where they would serve lunch or drinks. The restaurant was very nice and private. Service in the restaurant was exceptional. Breakfast was also way above average. I highly recommend this hotel.

Directions: Centeral, pedestrian zone

Truly Special Place to Stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 2, 2004

At the Hotel Konig Von Ungarn we were treated like princesses.... If you can stay in one of the two suites do it. The entire stay was a true pleasure.

Unique Quality: This is smaller hotel so everyone knows who you are, and you end up feeling at home.

Directions: In the middle of everything. Easy access to all the sites and any transportion you would need or want.
