The birthplace of the renowned Mozart tenor Richard Tauber (1891–1948), the "Black Bear" is a traditional house filled with memorabilia on a quiet side street in the center of the Old City, a block from the pedestrian zone. The floors and walls are of gleaming wood, sprightly drapes decorate the windows, and the low, modern beds have fluffy white comforters. Some rooms contain imaginative bathrooms with free-standing brick-and-gray-tile tubs. Rooms differ considerably
in size; ask to see your room first, if possible. The hotel also has a very good Heurige-style restaurant.
