Vienna Secession-Style Hotels?

we are thinking of Vienna in July and are looking for Secession style hotel, meaning the interior, too. anyone have ideas? i haven't found much online. we can't pay a lot (no five stars) but we don't mind a little run down. in fact, we like hotels that have some age to them.
thanks everyone.

Not much help here except to top this (I love it when people know what they like!)

I bid on Priceline for Vienna and won the Mecure - our room looked upon the roof of the Secession. The dome of the building is beautiful from the street but looking at it from the top and over was very cool.

I also have no specific info for you, but you can download the Architecture Guide at the link below (about halfway down the page, right side) and see if it includes any hotels in that style. Even if you don't find that Secession-style hotel you're looking for, I think you'll have fun tracking down buildings.

You could look to the City Hotel Central, This may fill some of your wishes.
It is located on Taborstrasse just across the Danube canal from the city center, reachable with a short walk.

The hotel is near to the stop of the airport transfer bus Schwedenplatz/Morzinplatz and near public transport Ubahn line U-1 and streetcars .

City Central looks pretty good. Thanks. Am I the only one who prefers a little shabbiness? My ideal hotel is the royal victoria in pisa.

If you are an art nouveau, secession afficianado (sp?) make a point to check out the Kirke am Steinhoff, the last commission of Otto Wagner at a Psychiatric hospital on the outskirts of Vienna. A bit tough to get to but stunning.

The most beautiful Secession style hotel I have ever seen was in the Lido, across from Venice. Spectacular art nouveau tile all over the exterior.
