“A great base for our family trip!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

We stayed here for two nights as a family (2 adults, one child, one baby) in March 2012. We walked here from the underground at the end of the road (even with pushchair, suitcases, etc!) It is a great base to explore the Austrian capital. It is an authentic, slightly old fashioned, typical Viennese property with furnishings and decoration to match. We stayed in room 18 which had a large double bedroom, a twin (two singles) bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and lounge area. There was plenty of space for the four of us. While staying here our 3 month old baby became sick and one of the staff members/family were extremely helpful. When we needed a late night chemist she lent us her child thermometer, as well as an unopened bottle of 'Calpol' equivalent, along with the address of the nearest children's hospital and a local taxi company. Luckily we didn't need this information during the night, but we did go to the hospital the following morning. We felt very assured of the assistance we were getting at Rothensteiner. My only downside was that when we were sat in the lobby waiting to get in a taxi to the train station at the end of our stay (with our two small children) one of the female members of staff lit a cigarette and smoked it across the room from us. Smoking inside isn't banned in Austria, but surely not smoking near small children (and an ill one at that!) is just common sense. This is the only reason I have marked the property down in some areas.

Room Tip: Room 18 is large and plenty big enough to house a family of 4-6 people. It does face the busy stree...

I stayed with some friends for a weekend and everything was great!

The staff is friendly and gentle.

The bedrooms are also very good (we had booked three types of accomodation for the whole group and they were all nice); Vienna style furnitures, but also modern and good. The bathrooms are clean and the beds comfortable.

The breakfast is much better than european hotels standards.

I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel has a number of rooms and apartments located on 5 floors in an old house. What I really liked about the place is the feeling of being in an old "pension" and this is also why I booked this hotel for a family weekend. The Rothensteiner family has run the pension/hotel for 5 generation and are very welcoming but not "in your face" at all. In fact it can be hard to locate the staff sometimes in the afternoon/evening! When we complained about the temperature they immediately came up and showed us how to use the temperature control in the room. They speak English if you do not speak German.

We had a 2 bedroom-apartment on the 4th floor for 4 adults. The value for money was very good. The apartment was in OK shape and the 2 bathrooms were nicely renovated in good style, with good shower etc. We got new towels daily which was nice. The lounge had 2 sofas and a large TV. The only thing which I would suggest to improve would be the lighting, since there were no bed lights for reading.

The breakfast is good and has a lot of variety.

The hotel is conveniently located. You can walk downtown in 20 mins although we took the tram 2 stops to Volksteater and then changed to tram/bus/subway. You can walk to the Spanish riding school and museums in 20-30 mins.

The initial impression arriving at the Rothenensteiner was positive: a building redolent of old Vienna filled with charming antique reminders of the city's glory days. The reception/dining area is delightful and our apartment was spacious and well-equipped.

The hotel was let down in our experience by serious management ineptitude or possibly dishonesty. Having lived in Vienna for three years, we knew that the hotel faced a busy road, the Neustiftgasse. We advised the management by e-mail (in clear German) that we would make a booking if they could offer us a quiet room which didn't face the street. We said the booking was dependent on an affirmative reply. They responded immediately, assuring us that we would have a quiet room.

When we arrived, reception had closed but waiting for us was a key to a room which, contrary to our specific request, faced the street - despite the hotel's advice in response to our original request - and which, as we knew would be the case, was very noisy, even through closed double windows. With no options given the absence of anyone at reception, we endured the night with litle sleep.

The following morning the manager didn't explain why we hadn't been given a room in accordance with our specific request. He tried to brush us off with claims that Vienna was always noisy and when confronted with the evidence of our e-mail exchange switched to implausibly challenging our claim that the room wasn't quiet. This left an impression of at best sharp practice.

The experience left a sour taste and we left rather than staying the two nights as originally planned. We hoped that the hotel management would learn from the experience but sensed an arrogant unpreparedness to listen carefully to and respond to clear customer requests.

During the night one of us lost one of our earplugs which we had deployed unsuccessfully attempting to minimise the noise. Groping on the floor to find it , disgustingly one of us found an ancient cheezel presumably left by a previous guest.

Not recommended.

In an older building with marble staircase and floors (but a lift to upper floors), huge rooms with new plumbing and fixtures, antique furniture, soft beds. Spotlessly clean, smoothly run by an extremely hospitable family. Excellent breakfast served each morning. Location is excellent: ten minute walk to Museums; fifteen to the Ring; plenty of restaurants nearby. Only fault is rather pricey wi-fi at 10 Euros a day. However there is a public computer in the lobby.

Rothensteiner Apartments are full of character and history, yummy breakfast, charming, friendly and very welcoming service, the rooms a spacious and beautifully decorated. The hotel is very conviniently located, just a short walk from the museum quater.
I've stayed here twice and will stay here every time when I'm in Vienna.
