The Theater An Der Wien is an well respected old building just ten minutes easy walk from the city centre.

It was host to many performances by Beethoven and other musical luminaries and has live concerts to this day.

Down by the side of the theatre in a quiet street stands another old building, the Hotel Beethoven. No guesses as to where it got it's name from.

Although it is an independently run small hotel, It has been superbly refurbished to a high standard, whilst retaining many of the original features. Beautiful inlaid wooden furniture and tasteful, comfortable sofas and chairs are in all the public areas.

It has marble floors, staircases and boasts chandaliers in many of the public rooms. These give a quality feeling to the hotel, which has a first floor coffee lounge with picture windows for guests, as well as a small, enclosed, private courtyard to enjoy the free teas, coffee and fresh fruit on offer all day.

The rooms are quite spacious, having high ceilings and modern en suite bathrooms.

Breakfasts are buffet style in a lovely sunny breakfast room, tables being laid with linen cloths. There is hot and cold food on offer, together with an array of juices, pastries, meats, cheeses, cereals, fruits, bread and preserves. Something for everyone and all good quality to set you up for the day.

Multi-lingual, friendly staff are very helpful and can offer advice as well as arranging tours and taxis. There are free internet stations in the reception area for guests to use at any time.

The room rates are exceptionally good for such a quality hotel, especially one so close to the centre. Book direct with the hotel for the best and most flexible rates. It is an easy process.

All of the attractions of the stunning city centre are an easy ten minute walk away and there are many very good restaurants nearby.

Even closer, just one minute away, but far enough away so as not to cause any noise problems is the Naschtmarkt (snack market). This is THE place to be in the evening. It is a fruit, spice and food market in the mornings, but from lunchtime to late evening it is four very long rows of restaurants and cafes with a family friendly, cosmopolitan vibrancy. The restaurants serve up food from around the globe at very reasonable prices.Eat either indoors, or as most do, at the outdoor tables under huge canopies, experiencing the buzz of laughter and chat.

Vienna is a very safe place and you will hit all the right notes with a stay at the Beethoven.
