With the Westbahnhof across the street, the Hotel Fürstenhof benefits from an indisputably great location. Its history, too, makes it special. Family-owned since 1919, the hotel has retained many of the touches from Vienna's golden age.
It's hardly a luxury property, but close as it is the Mariahilferstrasse (the high-end shopping street is about ten minutes walk, and it's another fifteen to the Ring) the Fürstenhof provides a convenient location with simple rooms at a fair rate. The hotel's historic pedigree is evident from the moment you step inside. Walk along a long red carpet with golden rods anchoring it in place. Even the elevator (installed in 1912) predates the hotel.
The 58 rooms are styled from the gilded age and incorporate red carpeting, dark wood furniture, and heavy curtains. Doubles are spacious, with ample room to get around, but singles are very tight. Oddly, the bathrooms, done in green and white marble, are brighter than the rooms, which don't get much natural light. All rooms have cable television and minibars.
An internet terminal is available, for a charge, in the lobby. And, the hotel allows pets, assuming the furry fellows are "friendly and quiet."
The staff here deserves a special note. The owners and even the concierge have been at the Fürstenhof for decades. They readily volunteer their knowledge of Vienna and the hotel's history to guests.
Note: This hotel does not offer non-smoking rooms.

About the Hotel Furstenhof neighborhood
Neubau is Vienna's nightlife epicenter, a recently gentrified area that still retains a lot of grit despite its nightly metamorphosis into party central. Situated north of Mariahilf, the neighborhood boasts the massive Museumsquartier, home to the museums of modern art and architecture. Neubau is also one of the best places in the city to shop for antiques.
