Hidden on the pedestrian-only Hafnersteig, in the Innere Stadt, the newly revamped Alma Boutique Hotel (formerly the quaint Pension Christina) is an efficiently-run property in a great location. Equidistant from the food stalls of the Schwedenplatz, the touristy bustle of the Stephansdom, and the shops of the Graben, the Alma offers a superb value with some pizzazz.
The Pertschy family, the crew that also owns the Pension Pertschy, has been running the 26-room Alma since 1964. Newly renovated rooms debuted in October 2008 and offer boutique must-haves like flat screen TVs and track lighting.
Décor, though crisp and minimalistic, does hint at “bachelor pad.” Heavy floor-to-ceiling curtains come in a black and gold pattern and are off-set by institutional headboards in dark metallic and faux suede room accents. A few spaces are overpowered by chintzy angel and fairy murals, but many still offer striking views of Innere Stadt rooftops. Bathrooms are fresh and cleanly-lined if painted in an ugly orange-red hue.
Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, as is air-conditioning. And, while prices have gone up, we still think it's a good choice.

Innere Stadt, Vienna, Austria
About the Alma Boutique neighborhood
The beautiful Innere Stadt is the Vienna of tourist brochures and chocolate boxes. The narrow, twisting cobblestone streets and fin-de-siècle façades, the expensive shops on the pedestrian-only Graben, and the alluring Stephansdom are all here. Happily, the Innere Stadt is big enough to boast back streets that appear quiet and undiscovered, thus offering a respite from the frenzy.
