This place is such a wonderful hidden gem in the middle of the town. I found it on Hoteltonight app for a short layover and couldn't be happier with the experience for the price I paid. It is about 7 minutes walk to the Underground (metro) that then connects you to a number of other stations, including the main terminal... More

Loved staying in this quirky hotel! A tiny bit away from the center of town but easy to get to using public transportation. The single rooms are economical and perfect for solo travelers. The restaurant and bar are super.

The hotel is well located. A lot of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood (less touristic and more authentic than others). The room was nice and the wifi excellent. The breakfast was good and the staff friendly. A chair would have been better than a stool in the room.

My wife and I stayed in the Hotel Brillantengrund for two nights in early October 2016. The weather was not on our side and it rained non-stop throughout our trip. The courtyard has real appeal and looked very charming but we couldn't enjoy it due to the rains. The location was good and it was a 15-20 min walk to... More

Recommend by a local, he's never stayed here but has heard it's good. It was great. Clean rooms, comfy beds, and fantastic breakfasts. It is in walking distance of the museum quarter, which was great for us. The receptionist is the best diamond, she is lovely. We are already planning our return visit

The courtyard is a sweet spot in the summer, nice bar and breakfast. There's also a nice bar on the main street by the entrance. The rooms are small and clean, no nonsense. It's simply a great funky hotel, affordable aand super great location! Highly recommended and I would return here gladly.

This little gem of hotel is in one of our favorite neighborhoods in Vienna. The food is delicious - many Filipino dishes, but also local Viennese cuisine. The location is better than we expected based on our map recon - so now we stay here every time we go to Vienna. This is one of the best!

I didn't stay there overnight, but the crowd was asked to exit the courtyard after 10:30 in order to let people actually staying there to get their sleep. It was my first time at the hotel in order to see the sculptures of Roland Reiter. In addition to the courtyard they also have outside seating on the street until 11... More

Hotel is just genuinely different - stayed five days and the place just grew on us. The staff were very helpful. There for work for two days and three days holiday and worked well for both. A visit to the Freud museum, the Third Man Museum and staying here meant you had to be in Vienna rather than anywhere else!

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
