A monastery with a viewLocated in the Inner Stadt, our room was in an old monastery that overlooked a cobblestone courtyard where an old man set up a basket stall every morning. The monastery is located near an apotheke (pharmacy) and a pretty fountain.
The area is quiet and when you throw open the windows in the morning, and stick your head out you can see Vienna coming to life. I didn't see or run into any other travelers, there was no curfew and the place offered much needed zen after a long day of being outside.
The monastery also houses a chapel and a delightful breakfast hall. The rooms are large and spacious and the bathroom was modern.
It is wonderfully located in the center of the city and is an easy walk to and from the main attractions. Several grocery stores, wine bars, restaurants and bakeries are nearby. Splendid Bar Italia is located right next to the monastery, as you come out, turn right and you'll see this bar/restaurant. Tables set up outside afford a beautiful view of the street in front and the monastery, especially at night.
