Hotel Beethoven Location
I was looking for a trendy place to stay in Vienna close to city center, yet tucked away in a quiet corner. I stumbled across Hotel Beethoven and it fit the bill perfectly for me!
It’s ideal especially if you are short on time and would like to make the most of the time in Vienna.
The hotel is at a walking distance from the cities major attractions – Opera house, Hofburg Palace, Musikverein, concert halls, and so on.
It’s also just a block away from Naschmarkt – a vast 16th-century origin market, offering fine food and produce and vintage stalls. Plan to visit the market during evenings when it’s quite lively.
Rooms at Hotel Beethoven
Just as I entered the room, I was welcomed with a bar of chocolate and a bottle of sparkling wine. And I was hitched right then!
The rooms are spacious and I loved the chic and trendy feel of the rooms.
Also, each of the rooms is color-coded. As a result, the rooms have their own style and vibe, which makes it quite special.
Now, let the pictures do the talking.
I met Barbara, the co-owner of the hotel on the mezzanine patio and she introduced me to her beloved hotel.
As it turns out, each of the six floors in Hotel Beethoven, Wien has a unique theme pertaining to the history and culture of Vienna. “Each room in the floor dedicated to a distinguished personality of the theme.”, she explained. “Ranging from Viennese coffeehouse literati, cessation art movement, Ludwig Van Beethoven, theatre, Vienna of love and desire, and strong women, each of the floors adorn a distinctive part of Vienna.”, she went on.
I stayed in the Red Baroness room, and the overwhelming color here was unsurprisingly RED (No brownie points for guessing). The Red Baroness refers to a socialist and a member of the Austrian Social Democratic Party who was born into the prominent Habsburg family of Austria – Elizabeth Petnzek.
Breakfast at Hotel Beethoven
The hotel offers complimentary breakfast to its guests. I loved it for its variety. Every morning I had a king-sized sumptuous breakfast to start off the day. Don’t miss homemade Viennese pastries and the popular Viennese coffee!
Also, they have coffee all day and night served in the breakfast room.
Staff at Hotel Beethoven
Right from the breakfast room, to concierge services, the staff was friendly and tried to help me in any way they can. They offered to help me with the opera house tickets, and transfers. Thanks to the staff, it was easy getting around the city and making most of my stay in Vienna. They spoke very good English, so there was no trouble in communication either.
Note – Check out the Hotel Beethoven site for special offers during offseason. Also, they offer complimentary services and discounts for direct booking on their site.
If you are lucky to be in the hotel over a weekend, then you will be privy to a chamber music concert organized for the guests. Hotel Beethoven provides a peek into the popular music culture of Vienna. The concert presents works of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and many other famous musicians of the country. Since I was staying here on weekdays, I totally missed this performance.
Some suggested Tours in Vienna
I later found out that they have quiz night in the hotel too which hosts trivia questions from all over the world. I haven’t heard of a hotel hosting quiz nights before. Isn’t that cool? Participate if and when you get the chance!
All in all, I had a wonderful and a very convenient stay in Vienna. If music concerts, scrumptious breakfasts, and chic rooms tickle your fancy, then look no further. Hotel Beethoven is one of the best value for money hotels you can find in Vienna.
