Looking for Historic Accommodation in the center of Vienna

I'm passionate about period buildings and old places that have stories to tell. Do you know any authentic (well preserved) house in the centre of Vienna which provide accommodation? It can be an old inn, hotel, B&B, convent ... as long as I can "spend a night in History"! Thanks a lot for your answers.

    Nothing better than Hotel Bristol, Vienna on Kaertner Ring in the Opera House area. If you've got SPG points to burn, so much the better. If it's good enough for Caruso, it's good enough for you! ;-) Here's the review from our blog: Review: Hotel Bristol Vienna

      Thank you so much Betsy for this very good suggestion! The Bristol Hotel in ViennaI is indeed very typical of the "Grand Palaces" of the Belle Epoque. Few of them kept their original flavour... I liked your long review, very detailed. Lots of VIPs in their guestbook, obviously... Did you sign it yourself? ;-) Gery · (1 likelikes)

      Thank you Toufic for this prestigious address! The Hotel Sacher looks indeed as quite an institution in Vienna... The place you want to stay in when you are a celebrity taking part to a VIP event... The room tariff is a bit too high for my budget, unfortunately... Maybe one day I'll be offered a free room if I write a post about it ;-) I'll definitely give it a try! · (0 likelikes)

    I would recommend König von Ungarn. A wonderful hotel, behind St. Stephan's that's no more expensive than the hotels nearby.

      Thank you Kar Yn for this precious address. The hotel is quite old and brimming with history, indeed. I like the way they focused on the history of the accommodation (lots of old pictures). · (0 likelikes)
