Every guest room at Hotel Altstadt is different. Some have claw-foot tubs, one has a Bösendorfer piano, and the building is festooned with colorful wallpaper. A cartoonish female sculpture by the French artist Niki de Saint Phalle greets you near room 35.

Lap up the luxury in one of the themed suites at Hotel Aldstadt
Don't be mislead by the misleadingly shabby-chic public spaces in the Hotel Aldstadt--The rooms themselves, especially the Felix Suite, that I stayed in, are well-appointed and spacious and finished off with high-end toiletries, and little extras like a pod-espresso machine and a martini glass full to the brim with individually wrapped chocolates.
DVDs are available for loan in the lobby, and the breakfast includes goodies like smoked salmon, champagne and a wide variety of cheeses and cured meats in addition to the pastries and breads that are typical in most hotels.
Afternoon tea and cakes are served in the breakfast room, free of charge for guests.
There seems to be a simple formula for the perfect hotel: great location, great service, great amenities, great price. Amazigly enough, the Hotel Altstadt Vienna ticks all of these boxes and adds innovative design on top. Located between Vienna's most important museums, the Hotel Altstadt committs to its role as a crossroads of culture and art by offering its guests a vibrant mix of the historic and the modern. A great spot for those who are looking for more than "just a room."
