All travelers have that one thing they pride themselves on. For some, it’s budgeting. For others, it’s finding that unique restaurant in every city. But for me, it’s finding the perfect hotel. Hotel Beethoven in Vienna is no exception. It’s moderately priced, ideally located, family-friendly, yet trendy and positively charming! It truly is the best place to stay in Vienna.
Hotel Beethoven location
First, let’s start with the location. Hotel Beethoven is ONE block from Naschmarkt and within walking distance to Stephensplatz, Hofburg Palace, and all the main tourist attractions. There is also parking located about half a block away in a secured garage. If you have a limited amount of time in Vienna, a great location is crucial which is one of the main reasons this hotel scores huge points with me. This area of the city may be the best area to stay in Vienna if you plan to walk to many of the sights.
Rooms at Hotel Beethoven
Personally, I would recommend the minimal upgrade charge to book one of their luxury rooms. The luxury rooms are unique, large, and beautiful! Our hotel room had both a shower and large freestanding tub.
A separate toilet room with a sink was located on the other side of the closet.
The room was brightly colored with a modern, fun feel and great finishing touches. A chandelier, adequate closet space with a miniature fridge and comfy bedding were like icing on an already delicious cake!
Family amenities at Hotel Beethoven
Although the hotel has a trendy, youthful vibe, it’s still very family friendly. I love this! Just because we’re parents doesn’t mean we want to vacation at a theme park. So I love a hotel that caters to both parents and children. The crib they supplied for our daughter had bedding so comfortable that under most circumstances I would be jealous, except our bedding wasn’t too bad itself. They even provided a giant stuffed cow for our daughter to play with during our stay. And play she did! She loved that thing. If it would have fit in our luggage, we probably would have tried to buy it.
The hotel also offers complimentary coffee all day and night in the breakfast room. There was also milk that they said we were welcome to for our daughter when we arrived late on our first night. When we got to the room, there were two complimentary full-size Vienna chocolate bars welcoming us! Anyone who knows me would tell you that chocolate (and wine) is the way to my heart. So imagine my joy when I walked into the room after a long day of traveling with a tired toddler to find two ribbon-tied chocolate bars! It’s all about the small details with this hotel.
If you’re not already sold that this is the best place to stay in Vienna, perhaps the breakfast buffet will win you over. The complimentary breakfast was amazing and the coffee was phenomenal. They have a beautiful little breakfast room, but for more privacy, especially with a toddler, I would recommend taking your breakfast across the hallway from the breakfast room into the small, quaint mezzanine patio. It’s enclosed and usually less crowded.
This will come in handy if you’re traveling with a toddler who can’t sit still very long and might bother other guests. I could see this small patio area being a great retreat for a couple looking for a romantic escape from a rambunctious toddler in the main dining area, as well.
Unfortunately, I don’t have photos of either the breakfast room or the mezzanine. When you travel with a toddler, you forget things, like taking pictures for your travel blog.
Staff at Hotel Beethoven
From the front desk, to the breakfast room, the staff was exceptional and friendly. They were helpful and willing to answer question, spoke English very well, and were always smiling at us and our little girl when we entered the hotel. It truly made us feel welcome and comfortable!
Why Hotel Beethoven is the best place to stay in Vienna
Hotel Beethoven is the ideal place to stay in Vienna. It’s safe, it’s close enough to everything yet tucked away on a quiet street, which means there are no crowds keeping you up at night. It literally had everything I look for in a hotel… plus chocolate. My toddler, who is hard to please at times, also approved. 🙂
