Location is always important, but on some occasions it is especially so. For instance when I had only a night and a few hours to spend in Vienna, so I wanted to be in the city centre, but with easy access to the airport. This hotel happens to be near the downtown station of the express train from the airport (the CAT) so this was my reason for choosing it, together with the fact that I trust the quality of Mercure hotels.
Unique Quality: I found all the qualities I expected from a 4-stars Mercure, but here I found something more! The architecture, the furniture and decoration are true to the hotel's name, and the atmosphere was genuine 19th Century Vienna, but with 21st Century amenities too.
Another aspect that I have liked very much is that my room was a decent size, a quality that is not frequently found in the hotels of old Europe.
Directions: Arriving with CAT use the exit marked Landstrasser Hauptstrasse - Beatrix Strasse. On the street turn left and walk for about 200 metres: the hotel is on the other side of the street. Through the archway you will get into an alley: the reception is there.

I am planning to visit Vienna in November and was wondering if this particular hotel was a good sightseeing base:
LAUDON (SUPERIOR) Hotel
I would also be grateful for any advice or suggestions about what to see etc.

Greetings from Montréal, Juergen
This link will show and describe you all the nice places from Vienna :
Take care, Juergen
Thanks very much to you both. That is a great help
I was also wondering what is the best way to get from the airport, as the holiday doesnt include transfer. Any ideas? What is the best way to get around too? Public transport good?
I think the best hotel with really resonable price is HILTON in exact centre of everything in Wien - www.hilton.com - address: Am Stadtpark 3.
Second one is almost next to Hilton - Mercure Grand Hotel Biedermeier Wien inside the chain - www.dorint.com address: Landstraßer Hauptstraße 28 .
I tried both of them , if you like to try austrian climate - the choice is BIDERMAIER!
Transport in Wien from airport to Centre is so easy!
You must take a rapid train called CAT - around 7 EUR, and after 15 minutes you will get a first stop - HILTON , Am Stadtpark 3
Have a nice stay in Wien
Your Hotel is a good choice :)
1) CAT is okay ... but then you are at 3th district .......... more cheap (and a better way to the 8th district ;) would be: Take any TRAIN to "Handelskai" and then the metro "U6" to "Alserstrasse" from there you have a tram called "43". This costs you around 6 euro.
If you want an easy way, reserve a taxi ... e.g. here: http://www.ck-airportservice.at/ - maybe write them an email for english information ;) email: firstname.lastname@example.org - they cost 29,-Euro for up to 4 persons.
you have a very nic e district and a tipp from me: go to "Old AKH" this is the old hospital located at the corner Spitalgasse/Alserstrasse ... there are some restaurants inside, very nice&green if the weather gets better ... and in wintertime there's a christmas market too :)
have a lot of fun in vienna!!
I agree with heksli, except C&K is bankrupt (still running, but with problems). If you want to use taxi there are at the airport 2 taxicounters (one in green), if you ask for a "Vienna Taxi" it will be €30 at the green counter and a similar price at the other.
