More about Small Luxury Hotel Das Tyrol
We were welcomed to Das Tyrol by a wonderfully helpful staff. We had not booked in advance, but because of a problem with the room we thought we had booked at another hotel, we were referred to Das Tyrol. What a wonderful treat! The room was beautiful, clean, smartly decorated and large by European hotel standards. The staff gave us directions for getting to our concert and we were able to use the internet (yes, it had been repaired) to adjust our other travel plans. The location was excellent, within a five minute walk of the MuseumQuartier subway stop and we could get anywhere in the city quickly. Breakfast was not only tasty, but was served in a well-decorated room which had space enough to move around. My only concern is that the hotel will be fully booked when we return to Vienna. Das Tyrol will be our destination of choice each time we return.
"Small, yes, Luxury, No"
Stayed at the Das Tyrol in May. I agree with a previous post that the front desk staff wasn't terribly friendly. As a frequent traveler, I am quite used to European hotel rooms being somewhat small, but the Das Tyrol rooms were especially tiny. My room was also dusty. The windows and the lamps and nightstands definitely needed cleaning! The big complaint I had was that the hotel advertises free internet use in the lobby, but the computer was "damaged" during my entire stay.
The breakfast buffet was fine.
The location is right next to the metro, which is good, because you will need it. The hotel is not located near any cafes or restaurants that were open past 6pm, except Starbucks.
You'll need to metro or walk to the Museum or Inner Ring area to eat. It is a pleasant and safe walk, but you will need to do it.
The hotel also says it is in a great shopping location, but it is not along the main shopping hub. And, again, all the stores closed very early.
The price of this hotel was ok, but I wouldn't stay here again.
Neat little joint
I just returned from a 4 night stay at Das Tyrol [March 28-April 1] I booked his hotel through their website... the room was great! big rooms considering it's europe. The staff was good, friendly and nice. The breakfast was good - they offer hot food, just check the little menu at the table when you sit. As mentioned in other reviews... hotel is in a good place... about a 15 minute walk to the main shopping areas like Kohlmarkt, but it's right on the Mariahilf.. lots of shops and restaurants. The Naschmarkt is right behind, a few roads down. Supermarket [Billa] and malls are right on the main road. I would definitely stay here again!
Absolutely fabulous hotel!
Staying at this hotel one can realise what is meant by the word "accomodation"!
It is stylish, very clean and the staff couldn't be more helpful. More details: The building has been decorated with excellent taste, especially compared with the price per room. The staff is as friendly as is supposed to be. They take care of everything-they are so thoughtful to have umbrellas near the lobby in case of rain! The bed matrices are comfortable as the pillows. Bedlinens are of excellent quality!Breakfast was lovely and everything tasted fresh and looked it. All the staff are very smiley and look as though they love their jobs. The hotel is located in the cultural centre of the city, near Museum Quarter. Too close to everything - shopping centre, cafes, Opera!
a fabulous hotel
we rented two corner suites with balconies in mid march based on the reviews from trip advisor. We were not disappointed. Our rooms were fantastic, with a great view of the city. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was great with very attentive service, and the location of the hotel was terrific. We highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure! we hope to return soon.
Just returned from a 4 night stay.The location though not inside the ring is great, close to shops, bars and an underground station. The rooms were an adaquate size, clean and nicely decorated. The bathrooms were very modern, which I like. Going down for breakfast was a treat as the lady that served us was so welcoming every day. The coffee and selection of food was excellent. They will also prepare hot food promptly. The reception staff are very helpful, booked restaurants, concerts and bus tour for us. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definately return!
My girlfriend and I stayed here for only two nights in mid March 2007. It was a really nice hotel. The location of the hotel was excellent, right on a great shopping strip and situated in the museum
quarter. Staff were friendly and knowledgable, and were more than willing to arrange a concert and bus tour for us. The breakfast was also pretty nice. We had no trouble walking to all the great sights and the metro was so close anyway. In all it was very enjoyable. On a
side note, and this has nothing to do with the hotel, dont go to the restaurant down the road amongst the museums called Una. It was terrible. My girlfriend had a fly in her wine but instead of giving us a new glass they simply fished out the fly with a spoon and gave her glass back to her!!! But that has nothing to do with the hotel which was excellent!!! I'd stay here again.
we must have hit Reception desk on an "off day"
The thing which struck me about this hotel was the total ambivalence of the man at the reception desk. Check in felt like we were arriving
at a funeral. Sign here... not too much smiling. when asked "can you give a suggestion for lunch", he said - go to the museum district (which is basically where the hotel is located.) So I asked "do you have a more specific suggestion?" He said "no not really." I felt like I was a total inconvenience by being there. this is unfortunate because this one persons blase attitude gave me a more negative feeling about the property. (He was the only one we ever saw at the desk during the 2 night visit.) therefore I would not go there again,
despite the positve reviews from other travelers.
Sorry, when I am a visitor on holiday, I expect good knowledge from the local behind the desk. With this guy I would have been much better off surfing tripadvisor for suggestions!!
My 3 Days in Vienna
"Shopping, shopping and shopping!"
I spent 3 days in Vienna with my mum and as we both enjoy shopping, we started our trip on Mariahilfer Strasse. Conveniently, that was also where our hotel Das Tyrol was located. So, we spent our first day in Vienna going up and down Mariahilfer Strasse, which really is a heaven for shopaholics! There are so many shops that you just don't know where to start and the street seems to go on forever.
"Some sightseeing and more shopping"
On our second day we walked to Stephansdom, which was truly amazing! Kärnter Strasse and Graben, the shopping streets in the inner city, were very crowded and over-priced for our budget so we decided to go back to Mariahilf. On our way back we went through the Hofburg complex, which was magnificent as well. We also saw the Natural History Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, which were very impressive as they're situated opposite to each other and they look alike. Unfortunately we didn't have time to visit them, but may be next time!
"Inner City and Schönbrunn"
We dedicated our last day in Vienna to sightseeing. We bought a 24-hour ticket and used both subway and the tram to see most of the major sights. First of all we went to Rathaus (Vienna City Hall), and were amazed by the size of it. There were Film Festivals in Vienna and Rathaus was the venue for the event so there was a huge screen in front of the building. From the Rathaus we took tram No 2 which goes around the Ring. We stopped at the Votiv church to take some photos and then went on tram again to stop at the Opera. Behind the Opera house we found Hotel Sacher and decided to go and taste the original sacher cake, which was very sweet and tasty! After a quick break at the hotel, we headed to Schönbrunn Castle. The size of the Schönbrunn gardens was absolutely huge! We only had about an hour or so to spend there so we only managed to see a fraction of it all. You could easily spend a whole day exploring there. The Zoo can be found there, too.

vienna hotel to train station
We're staying at :
Small Luxury Hotel
Mariahilfer Straße 15
A-1060 Vienna, Austria
When we leave we're taking the train to Budapest. The train station is.....Wien Westbahnhof...Should we take a taxi or is it cheaper to get transfers for a shared ride? ( about $25 each person) We don't want to take the bus because we have luggage. thanks
Re: vienna hotel to train station
Don't know how much luggage you have but have you thought about taking the U-bahn. from Mariahilfer Straße it is a very short walk to the U-bahn station and there you can get a train to the Westbahnhof. I think the journey would take you about 10 minutes. you will enjoy Vienna - it is a wonderful city
