The Knights of Malta—the Hospitallers—knew something about hospitality, and their baroque mansion, now family run, continues to offer travelers a comforting welcome mat. An atmospheric carriage entrance and cobblestoned courtyard greet you in this tranquil lodging just off Kärntnerstrasse, away from the crowded shopping streets. It's a traditional sort of hotel, with attractive and airy rooms with golden and crimson bedspreads, reproduction furniture, and soft carpets.
The rooms on the first floor are the most attractive; try to get one facing the pretty baroque street. There are also five apartments with kitchenettes. In summer the inner courtyard is set with tables for dining; at other times you can sample Vienna specialties under rather regal vaulted arches.
