The Savoy is one block off of the Mariahilfer Strasse, a major shopping avenue which leads to the city center, and is near the Naschmarkt. A decent breakfast is served every morning, but get there early as the few tables fill up fast. The room I stayed in was clean and unexpectedly large. I would definitely reccomend this hotel, especially if you like to be close to the action, but not right in the thick of things.
Unique Quality: The location is excellent, within walking distance of the city center, the Neubau, the Naschmarkt, and the Museum Quarter.
Directions: One block from the Mariahilfer Strasse
I often thought I should NOT write about this hotel at all, but finally I thought it is best to tell you my experiences - even if they happened lots of years ago and the hotel might be under a different managment now.
On my pic : Stiftskirche is reflected in the "Virgin"-store on Mariahilfer Strasse - THERE you go towards the church and along the Stiftskaserne and walk to Lindengasse, just behind the gerngross-shoppingcentre
Unique Quality: First the positive things :
The hotel is well located, rather in the centre, just behind Gerngross - departmentstore (Mariahilferstrasse)
My negative experiences of some years ago:
This hotel makes overbookings of 10-20% and the first guests arriving get the rooms, all the others are sent to nearby or not so nearby hotels.
Just imagine you get a taxi from the airport, get out, take your luggage to reception on 1st floor simply to find out that you have to go to another hotel, pay another taxi and loose a lot of your precious time in Vienna.
Unfortunately this practice is ABSOLUTELY legal and usual all over the world...
...BUT while it happens in most hotels only accidentally, in THIS hotel it is a principal, to overbook.
AND they also ask for the deposit of the 1st night, and will send you away anyway...
Directions: get out of the subway at station "Stiftsgasse" and walk behind the Gerngross -store
